Tom Servo POP! vinyl and now I'm finally getting the chance to check out Crow. Apparently Tom and Crow didn't ship on the same day. Now that they're both out, why not order them for the MST3K fan in your life who needs something special for Christmas? It's a much easier Christmas gift to give than letting them decide who lives and dies! Let's take a look at Crow T. Robot after the break...

Step 1: Try to identify as many toys in the California Job Case as you can (there are one or two I'm not even sure about, so I feel like that adds to the challenge, right?) Try to be as specific as possible but don't feel like you have to ID them all. Do your best!
Step 2: Email your list to barbecue17 at actionfigurebarbecue.com with the headline California Job Case Contest! Please include your user name you post by in the email so I know who you are.

Road to the Last Jedi: Darth Vader from Star Wars: The Black Series Phase III Titanium Series by Hasbro
Sunday, December 10, 2017
5-pack B, the 10 pack, and the 20 pack while this one is available single packed and in the 20 pack as well. I picked up the single packed version a week or two ago and I'm checking him out today. He looks much more like the Rebirth Superman rather than the New 52 Supes represented by the DC3 figure. Let's check out this die-cast metal version of the Man of Steel after the break...
Suicide Squad Joker figure released earlier this year. I've reviewed lots of versions of this Harley Quinn but this is probably the smallest version of her I've reviewed so far. She's a fun little trinket and another cool addition to a Harley Quinn collection. Let's check out this little die-cast diva after the break...

Road to the Last Jedi: Rey (Jedi Training)- Crait from Star Wars: The Black Series Phase III by Hasbro
single packaged release, there are actually quite a few differences here that should make this figure appealing to you if you're a die-hard Black Series fan including a pretty awesome display base and some die-cast weapons. The figure is actually different as well, featuring improved paint and actual soft goods. Hasbro has released some of these "deluxe" variations of the popular characters for both Episode VII and Rogue One so they're just continuing the tradition here. Let's check out this new version of Rey after the break...

Suicide Squad based Joker previously but this new one is a more standard comic based Joker. There's definitely some Batman: The Animated Series influence in here, too. Let's take a look at this diminutive version of the clown prince of crime after the break...

comic based Flash Nano Metalfig was one of the best releases in the first wave of figures and this Justice League inspired version is almost as good. Let's check this one out after the break...
Metamorpho, and Killer Croc give me hope that they'll continue to go deeper! This version of Commissioner Gordon clearly seems to be inspired by the Batman: The Animated Series version of the character as he's a bit older and is wearing that character's trademark outfit. Let's check this guy out a bit more closely after the break...

release of the first series of Icons figures it really seemed like DC Collectibles was going to create an incredible line of figures. Heck, earlier this year it seemed like things were going well too as figures like Deathstroke and Swamp Thing were incredible and upcoming releases like Deadshot, Catwoman, Etrigan, and the Blue Beetle/ Booster Gold two-pack looked amazing as well. Unfortunately, DC Collectibles started cancelling figures left and right and all of those upcoming releases were cancelled. The recent Superman versus Doomsday set was slated to be the final release in the line, so reviewing another excellent figure from this line is kind of bittersweet. This Supergirl figure is based on the DC Rebirth series which is quite good so far (I've only read the first trade; the second is sitting on my nightstand just waiting to be read once I finish the most recent volume of Justice League of America). Let's take a look at this very impressive version Kara Zor-El after the break...

that's what the Hasbro release calls this figure. This crate's theme was "The Last Jedi" so we've received a plethora of goodies from the new film including a Rey keychain, a First Order bandanna, some Elite Praetorian Guard socks, and a Poe Dameron POP! that I'll be reviewing here soon, too! Oddly enough there is no pin or patch, making this the first Smuggler's Bounty crate to come without those pieces. Let's check out this new version of the now mysterious Luke Skywalker after the break...
