Action Figure Review: Batman & Superman (Batman: The Dark Knight Returns) from DC Comics Multiverse by Mattel

 During the weekend of SDCC 2017 I noticed an email from Mattel in my inbox advertising their latest endeavor, the Mattel Vault. Essentially, Mattel has just added their adult collector targeted items to Mattel Shop, but it's a nice way to sell some items that are still available. Plus, guess what? The abysmal Digital River is no longer around! In fact, I checked it out and ordered this very cool new The Dark Knight Returns set that is exclusive to the Mattel Vault and guess what? It was shipped through a normal shipping method, not the Newgistics craziness that plagued MattyCollector and doomed all orders to sitting in Sparks, Nevada for a few days. Hopefully Mattel keeps some cool stuff on this site. Now that we've addressed that craziness, you're probably wondering "What's the deal with the Drow versions of Batman and Superman?" I'm glad you asked! This set of figures is part of the The Dark Knight Returns subset of figures in the DC Comics Multiverse line and features the two members of the DC trinity battling as they appeared on the cover of The Dark Knight Returns #3: The Dark Knight Falls. It's a cool idea, but how does it work in execution? Find out after the break...

Action Figure Review: X-34 Landspeeeder & Luke Skywalker (SDCC Exclusive) from Star Wars: The Black Series Phase III by Hasbro

  I've been sitting on this review for a couple of weeks as I had quite a few other things to review and, boy, have I been itching to get to this one. It's the SDCC 2017 exclusive X-34 Landspeeder & Luke Skywalker from Hasbro's Star Wars: The Black Series. The Landspeeder was my first Star Wars vehicle, although mine was from the Power of the Force II line. It's always been a vehicle that absolutely represents Star Wars to me, probably even more so than the Millennium Falcon. I'm not saying I like it more or think it's more iconic; there's just something about it that perfectly captures the "lived in" Star Wars feel. This year Hasbro had three Black Series exclusive items (this, Grand Admiral Thrawn, the Rey and Luke 2-pack. Heck, four if you count the Toys 'R Us exclusive Gree.) and I have to say that this is the one I was most looking forward to. While Hasbro is going to be releasing this vehicle later this year, the SDCC exclusive has some differences such as higher quality paint applications, a spinning engine turbine, a "premium" tunic, and a deluxe display box. I'm a Black Series sucker and I had to have the best version of the Landspeeder, so here it is! Since this is a pretty big release, I'm going to skip the usual "Positives & Negatives" format and go through the set piece by piece. Let's take a closer look at the Landspeeder and Luke Skywalker after the break...

Action Figure Review: R5-D4 #180 from POP! Star Wars by Funko

 The Unfinished C-3PO POP! vinyl I looked at yesterday was one of two POPs in the July Smuggler's Bounty box, so today we will be looking at the second: R5-D4. While R5-D4 is a pretty minor character, he gets more credit than most other droids because: A. He actually affects the plot, and B. He had an action figure in the vintage Kenner line. He also had a cool as heck missile firing variant in the Power of the Force 2 line, but I think that figure only resonates with a few of us. Overall, I'd wager R5-D4's enduring popularity (granted, I'm not sure I'd call him mainstream or anything) can mostly be attributed to having a vintage Kenner figure. If you scored a vintage Kenner figure, you're guaranteed to be loved forever. Let's take a look at this very cool R5-D4 POP! vinyl after the break...

Action Figure Review: C-3PO [Unfinished] #181 from POP! Star Wars by Funko

 I've had the July 2017 Smuggler's Bounty box for a few weeks but I just have not had the chance to talk about it yet, so why not today, right? July's theme was Droids and this box included a plethora of droid themed items: A C-3PO and R2-D2 themed patch, a t-shirt with R2-D2 and BB-8, a Battle Droid enamel pin, and two Funko POP! vinyls: R5-D4 and an unfinished C-3PO. Direct from Episode 1, a film I have become increasingly nostalgic for over the past 5 years or so, comes this exclusive POP! of C-3PO with his exposed circuits showing. I remember picking up the Episode 1 C-3PO figure and being amazed at how cool he was with all of his parts showing. It's such a cool! Now, thanks to Funko, you too can own your own unfinished version of Anakin's little side project. Ready for a closer look at this POP? Then join me after the break...

Action Figure Review: Harley Quinn No. 033 from Suicide Squad MAFEX by Medicom

  It's no secret that I'm a fan of the Academy Award winning film Suicide Squad. Yeah, it's not a perfect movie but, for a DC fan like me, the chance to see a fairly diverse roster of DC characters interact made this one pretty enjoyable. I'm also a huge fan of Margot Robbie's portrayal of Harley Quinn. I've really narrowed my modern collecting focus down to DC action figures, Star Wars: The Black Series, and One:12 Collective, so I've been able to score more versions of Batman related characters, which is possibly my primary collecting passion. Today I'm looking at Medicom's Harley Quinn from their MAFEX line. Being a collector of 6-7 inch DC figures and a huge Harley Quinn fan, I've already picked up a few versions of the character in this same outfit by various companies. Last year I reviewed Mattel's DC Comics Multiverse versions of the character while earlier this year I reviewed the S.H. Figuarts Harley Quinn (I also have the One:12 Collective and Hot Toys releases preordered!) While Mattel's effort is the $20 dollar mass market figure you might expect, Bandai's S.H. Figuarts release is pretty impressive. So impressive, in fact, that I didn't think I would end up buying the MAFEX release. It turns out, Medicom's MAFEX version might be better. If you're really deciding between these two (as they're the most similar 6 inch "high end" Harley Quinn figures on the market) I would encourage you to open up the S.H. Figuarts review in another window and check these out side by side. I've done my best to structure these both the same overall, so you should be able to compare and contrast the two. Let's check this one out, shall we?

Minifigure Review: Pack B from DC Nano Metalfigs by Jada Toys

A few days ago I looked at the DC Nano Metalfigs Pack A and now I'm checking out Pack B! (There isn't a Pack C yet, so you'll have to just keep wondering what my next review will be.) Filled with some absolute A-list DC Comics star power, Pack B includes Superman, Supergirl, Aquaman, and exclusive figures of Lex Luthor and Batman. Thomas Wayne as Batman from Flashpoint, to be precise. Yup, that is indeed very, very cool. I'm really liking these little minifigures, especially considering they're about $1 each and made from die-cast metal. Let's take a closer look at this roster after the break...
