Blue Devil DC Direct action figure

I got my Blue Devil DC Direct action figure a couple weeks ago, but this is the first chance I’ve had to write about it.  The figure looks great!  Below you’ve got a picture of the Blue Devil packaging.  This figure is part of the History of the DC Universe series of figures, all based […]


Star Wars Muppet Figures

A while back my wife picked up these cute Star Wars Muppet pvc figures for me at one of the Disney theme parks.  They are adorable!  Characters include: Fozzie the Bear as Chewbacca  (brilliant casting!)

New Action Figures and T-Shirt

I picked up some new action figures recently.  From the DC Direct Justice League International line, I picked up Black Canary and Ice.  I’ve got Fire on order, but she’s not due for a while.  This will help me fill out my DC Direct JLA collection of figures.  I’m one of the few people that […]


New Doctor Who Classic Cybermen Action Figures

I just got some new Doctor Who Classic action figures!  This time out it was a set of four Cybermen that were just released.  Each Cyberman came with a “Collect and Build” piece to create a fifth figure, the classic Cyber Controller.  I took a picture to show them off, but it didn’t come out […]

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 […]
