Boning Up on a Classic

Review: Mattel He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Cartoon Collection Skeletor Action Figure

Figure of the DayMattel He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Cartoon Collection Skeletor Action FigureSomething new every day-- unless it's old! Our exciting Figure of the Day continues for you lucky people! Is there anything we won't cover in this column? Probably not!

New! The Mattel He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Cartoon Collection Skeletor Action Figure is seemingly not in any major US chain stores yet, I got mine online - and he's pretty good. Not perfect, the colors are quite bright and he's light on paint, but he's charming enough and has some really good accessories. Also, March is going to be all Masters of the Universe here, so buckle up for more Grayskull action. Also note that this one not only as a swell comic with sewn pages, but two alternate heads in the form of masks. They have the neck hole and everything. Read on, and come back tomorrow for more fun!

Classic Review: Toy Biz Video Game Super Stars Mario Kart 64 Mario Action Figure

Figure of the DayToy Biz Video Game Super Stars Mario Kart 64 Mario Action FigureA classic! I've written over 5,000 action figure reviews since 2006, so I'm going to toot my own horn with classic Figure of the Day.

Posted eight years ago today! The Toy Biz Video Game Super Stars Mario Kart 64 Mario Action Figure was released around 1999 by Toy Biz and came and went in a flash. It's a pretty robust toy for the price, particularly at the time. It has a figure, a kart, and a launching green shell - and you probably never saw it. There are dozens of Mario Kart toys today, but this was the first one I got. Read on!

Come back tomorrow for an all-new review!

Gone! This Super7 Sesame Street Yip Yip Martians ReAction Figures set came out at the end of the year, sold out, and is now on the pricey side on the secondary market. That was fast - so if you see them in a comic shop or record store, just buy them. They're good. Do read on, and come back tomorrow for more fun!

Star Wars Review: Sabine Wren (Epic Hero Series)

Star WarsVia the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Sabine Wren (Epic Hero Series). This is the one that you might actually find in a store near you, and she has a decent array of gear - but no blasters. She is a deluxe release, so they're charging more for her (backpack, shield) but it's still a pretty nice figure and feels like a durable toy. Read the whole review.

Hasbro Transformers Legacy United Core Energon Universe Megatron Action Figure

Figure of the DayHasbro Transformers Legacy United Core Energon Universe Megatron Action FigureSomething new every day-- unless it's old! Our exciting Figure of the Day continues for you lucky people! Is there anything we won't cover in this column? Probably not!

New! The Hasbro Transformers Legacy United Core Energon Universe Megatron Action Figure is in stores now and a nice little figure - but kind of a lumpy space jet. It is not as impressive as the Leader-class toy from 20 years ago, but it's still neat. He's got the tank cannon arm blaster and the green cannons on his shoulders are now removable and can be used as hand blasters. Read on, and come back tomorrow for more fun!

Star Wars Review: R4-Series Astromech Droid Black with Silver

Star WarsVia the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: R4-Series Astromech Droid Black with Silver. This was a later droid bin part from the Disney theme parks - and it looks a lot like a Hasbro dome, but doesn't have a perfectly matching body. It's also not too expensive on eBay if you can find it. Read the whole review.

New Onell Design Glyos Drop Delayed, Now Tonight

Figure of the Day New Glyos Drop: Interdimensional Intruders Monday at 9:30 PM Eastern Via the Glyos News Dump: New Glyos Drop: Interdimensional Intruders FRIDAY at 9:30 PM Eastern.

That's tonight! It was last night, but delayed. I saw some figures were launched and yanked - Glyan Glyorian, SE Qualigru, and Glyan Metallore Commando were allegedly briefly posted to the store and yanked. They were magenta, and purple, with some cyan mixed in. Presumably more in those colors will go live in a few hours.

Figure of the DayMattel Masters of the Universe Origins Turtles of Grayskull Donatello Action FigureSomething new every day-- unless it's old! Our exciting Figure of the Day continues for you lucky people! Is there anything we won't cover in this column? Probably not!

Possibly the best one! This Mattel Masters of the Universe Origins Turtles of Grayskull Donatello Action Figure is dressed in purple armor that looks a little like Man-at-Arms, and he has a shield too. It's weirdly fun and worth keeping around on your desk. Do read on, and come back tomorrow for more fun!
