Doctor Who Classic Action Figures… MINE, MINE, MINE!

You may recall back in September I was anxiously awaiting my Doctor Who Classic action figures from Character Options.   These are new Doctor Who action figures based upon stories from the original series (years ranging from 1963-1989).  My figures finally arrived just before Thanksgiving, but I haven’t had a chance to post them until now. […]


Aquaman Week Addendum – Action Figures

Thanks to everyone that stopped by during AQUAMAN WEEK here at Once Upon a Geek.  Based upon comments and number of hits, it seemed to be of interest to lots of folks.  I’m glad to hear that. Today is an addendum to AQUAMAN WEEK.  Below you will find a picture of my Aquaman figures.   I […]


Blue Devil Action Figure Announced!

Dude, I’m totally jazzed!  It’s just been announced that DC Direct will be producing a Blue Devil action figure!  That’s right, because I demanded it!  Yup, just me.  I can’t imagine anyone else besides me has been clamoring for this.  Blue Devil just so happens to be one of my top five favorite superheroes of […]


Doctor Who Classic Action Figures Finally Ship!

The Doctor Who Classic action figures from Character Options started shipping in mid-August.  Unfortunately, there were severe allocations to most retailers.  Therefore many of us have been stuck waiting for the second wave of figures to ship, even though we pre-ordered.  If you’ve ever ordered action figures before, then you know that subsequent waves (after […]


New Aquaman Figure Coming from Mattel

Dude … Friggin’ Sweet!  Mattel keeps finding ways to get my money!  They are planning to put out quite possibly the coolest Aquaman figure of all time!  In 1986, there was a fantastic Aquaman mini-series by Neal Pozner and Craig Hamilton.  In this series, they gave Aquaman a new costume (supposedly designed to be underwater […]


My daughter’s TRUE education continues…

And so my daughter’s TRUE education continues this week with a new toy.  You may recall a few weeks ago I did a post about my daughter’s new educational toys.  Well, this new one goes hand-in-hand with the educational value of those.  I just love these figures!  They’re adorable! Now if they’d only release a […]


Action Figure Woes

I’ve been trying to get my hands on two action figures lately. They came out a few months ago from Mattel in their line of DC Universe Classics (Wave 2).  This is the brand of figures that are now carried in stores like Target.  The action figure scuplts are surprisingly good for distribution in regular stores. Personally, […]


And so begins my daughter’s TRUE education…

When you are raising a very young child, you always want to keep a few things in mind when purchasing toys. First, you want to be sure the toy is safe. Second, you should ensure some of their toys have educational value. When I say educational value, I don’t mean academic education, like “book smarts”. […]


Steampunk Star Wars and much more!

I am still in awe of the Steampunk Star Wars action figures created by Sillof’s Workshop.  He posted them a while ago, but I was looking at them again recently.  If you haven’t seen them, you must check them out.  The amount of creativity and craftsmanship that went into these is amazing.  I don’t want to […]


Shag’s Comicatorium (a.k.a. Shag’s Sanctum Sanctorum)

I love me some JLA & JSA.  In fact, I’ve been building a DC Direct action figure collection of these two teams for years.  After seeing my buddy Michael Bailey (Views from the Longbox & Fortress of Baileytude) post some pics of his figures, I thought I would take you on a tour of some of […]
