Welcome back to another weekly installment of Barbecue's Bonfire! Since this past Saturday was Re-Halloween we celebrated by watching some Tree House of Horror, playing Zombicide, and checking out what was left at our nearest Party City. On Sunday afternoon we reorganized the closet where we keep our various holiday decorations and began putting up Christmas decorations. It's taking a bit but it's beginning to feel like that special, festive time of the year. I hope you're all doing well and starting to get into the holiday spirit! What have I been up to this week? Well first up, we're going to have to talk about The Mandalorian...
Living Doll" and the story from Trilogy of Terror, and from IV it's "Bart Simpson's Dracula." I'm a big fan of Bram Stoker's Dracula and this is a respectable 6-7 minute parody of it with some great quotes. "He's a vampire?"
Lastly, let's check out the most popular reviews this week...
Teela from Masters of the Universe Origins is on her second week and now she's up to the top! What can I say? Teela's a beloved character from one of the greatest properties of them all! I think she's the best figure in the line so far and a worthy successor to the vintage toy.
Beast Man from Masters of the Universe Origins is on his fourth week and he's still sitting strong, though he has been knocked down a notch by Teela. Who knew the guy was such a hit with the kids? These figures seem to now be in good supply and more collectors and casual fans should be able to get their hands on them.
Man-At-Arms from Masters of the Universe Origins is here again for his third week. I'm really waiting for this line to find its own identity, like 200x or MOTUC, but these are still fun toys for the price point. This version of MAA kind of looks like Nacho Libre though, right?
Panthor at Point Dread from Masters of the Universe Mega Construx is another new review from this week. I'm really loving the Mega Construx MOTU line and this one is fantastic, especially because we get the Talon Fighter and Zodac! Woohoo!
Raphael from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Ultimates is the first newcomer on the list and he's great proof that major league butt-kicking never left. Turtle Power is still strong after all these years and Super7's new line is perhaps the most radical yet.
Evil-Lyn from Master of the Universe Mega Construx is another newcomer on the list this week, though she's in good company as 5/6ths of the list is Masters of the Universe related. The Mega Construx line seems like it's doing well and Evil-Lyn is a popular lady, so I expect her to hang around a bit. I'll probably start reviewing the rest of this series of minifigures next week, so stay tuned!
Well, that's all for this week dudes and dudettes! Keep it real and keep collecting! Also, today's Friday the 13th so don't get hacked up or anything.
