What's up everyone? My family's journey through the MCU continues plus I spent a lot of time reading this week. First up? WandaVision of course!
More Marvel, Star Wars, Harley Quinn, and witches after the break...
Now, last, but never least, let's look at the week's most popular reviews! There wasn't a lot of changes this week though Zodac did make a showing...
Roboto from Masters of the Universe Origins is still up at the top slot for his second week, so lots of fans are clearly saying "Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto." I was actually a bit disappointed by this one due to the lack of gears in his chest and the way his torso is loose and wobbly but clearly folks are interested in checking him out.
Missing in Action: Toylines that Didn't Make the Cut in 2020 is one of my annual end of the year lists. This one is always interesting, though sometimes heartbreaking, as I go over the toylines I loved from the previous year that seemed to have disappeared. Last year's heartbreaker for me was Hasbro's Overwatch Ultimates. I loved that line! This is the fourth week it's on the list so maybe others are heartbroken, too?
Lords of Power from Masters of the Universe Origins was the 2020 PowerCon exclusive set based on the prototypes for the vintage MOTU line when the line was still going to be called Lords of Power. The set is on its ninth week on the list and while it was way, way too expensive, it's also pretty cool for fans who take interest in the development of MOTU. MOTU Origins looks like it's going to have a big year in 2021 and that very well may drive up demand for this set.
Zodac from Masters of the Universe Origins is new to the list this week and seems to be another sign of the popularity of Masters of the Universe Origins. How long will this neutral man stay on the list?
Drizzt & Guenhwyvar from Dungeons & Dragons: Forgotten Realms is a Hasbro Pulse exclusive that is still available for sale and I'm not sure if that's good or bad. usually Hasbro Pulse exclusives sell out in preorder status but Drizzt is still around. Did Hasbro actually make enough for everyone or are collectors just largely uninterested in what may end up being a one-off release? Drizzt is a good figure for sure, though Guenhwyvar is a bit of a disappointment. Lots of accessories, though, and the price is right for the set. This one is on it's second week.
10 Members of the Vintage G.I. Joe Team Who Would be Awesome in G.I. Joe: The Classified Series is one of my top 10 lists. In this one, which is on its second week on the list, I pick my favorite of the vintage Joe figures (just the G.I. Joe team, no Cobra yet) who aren't guaranteed A-listers that would translate well into the Classified Series. Who are your picks?
That's it for this week! It's Friday night and there's no WandaVision! What to do? We're watching Age of Ultron. Go do something fun. Also, remember to set your clocks for Daylight Saving Time on Sunday!
