S.H. Figuarts version of the Hammer Bro., it's nice to have an official World of Nintendo version, too. Plus, they're usually referred to as the Hammer Bros., so having two of them just makes sense. I love these guys ( a Fire Bro. has just been released and I'd love a Boomerang Bro. in the future, too) and having this classic villain is really fun. Let's check him out after the break...

Fabulous Secret Powers/ "HEYYEYAAEYAAAEYAEYAA" video hilarious, especially the part that features the cover of 4 Non Blondes' "What's Up?" Super7 still thinks it's funny too and that's why they releases this action figure of Prince Adam laughing/ singing as a 2018 SDCC exclusive in the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe line. While I've not been a huge collector of the more Filmation focused line (I love the Filmation cartoons but I'm most interested in figures that mesh well with Masters of the Universe Classics) this was one I couldn't pass up. Let's check out this rocking version of Prince Adam after the break...

Karg, Quakke, and Wrap Trap, but there have been a few less than impressive releases as well. While figures with a true Filmation aesthetic have a home in the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe line, Super7 seems to be trying to work them into the standard MOTUC line, too, and the results are less than impressive. Dylamug has long been one of the most wanted figures in MOTUC due to his role as one of the earliest Horde villains in She-Ra: Princess of Power. Getting him as part of Super7's second series is a real treat but, aesthetically, he feels like he almost belongs more in the Filmation line rather than MOTUC. Join me me after the break so I can show you why.

FOCO sent me last month and it just so happens to be another Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Eekeez figure: Michelangelo! This party dude really looks incredible in the Tiki inspired aesthetic of the Eekeez line, doesn't it? I'm really a pretty big fan of this line and I hope to add the other figures from it (Raphael, Donatello, and the Shredder) to my collection in the near future. As someone who has collected various Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle figures since 1988, it's nice to see there are still unique depictions of the TMNT to be had. Let's check out Michelangelo after the break...

new lightsaber packaging and is now calling the line Star Wars: Micro Force Wow! While the name and packaging are different, the figures are the same as the previous Micro Force figures, which are essentially the same as the Fighter Pods figures from a few years back. I'm pretty sure these are all new sculpts, though. One of the figures I got in my pack was Captain Phasma. While Phasma's not one of my favorite characters or anything, she definitely does have a great look. This figure depicts Phasma with her Quicksilver Baton from her battle with Finn in The Last Jedi. Ready for a quick look at a small figure? Then join me after the break...

FOCO sent me last month and the subject of today's review is another Eekeez figure from their Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles collection: It's Master Splinter! Master Splinter is one of my favorite characters of them all: He has an incredible design, he's a master warrior, and he's a caring father. I love this guy and I'm really excited that FOCO has released him in the Eekeez line. FOCO has lots of Eekeez figures from various Nickelodeon owned properties and while it's been quite some time since TMNT became a Nickelodeon owned property, it still always takes me by surprise. If you dig shows like Invader Zim, Rugrats, Ren and Stimpy, and SpongeBob SquarePants, check them out. Of course, I'm eager to check out this Splinter, so let's get rolling!
