Adding to the Archives: Who Should be the Star of April's Spotlight?

   For March I've been covering some older Han Solo releases to help us get collectively pumped for the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story and to add more Han Solo themed reviews for the archives. I've decided to keep this as a monthly trend and so for April 2018, I'll hold a vote: Simply leave a comment below naming which of the following characters you'd like to see have a month long review series on!

Here are the options:

Bane- It's been quite a few years since there was a lot of Bane product out on shelves. I'd definitely try to take a look at a variety of Bane offerings from over the years. He's an interesting character with some crazy toys, so why not?

Captain America- With the impending release of Avengers: Infinity War, let's check out some previous Captain America figures and give Steve Rogers the tribute he deserves!

Wonder Woman- I've reviewed a ton of Wonder Woman figures over the past year or so and she's so close to having enough reviews on the site for me to give her her own personal review archive. Let's get her over the top, shall we?

Indiana Jones - Indy is one of my favorite film characters (possibly my favorite) and yet I haven't reviewed much Indy product on the site due to there not being much over the past decade. Let's fix that and check out some various versions of Dr. Jones.

Lara Croft- With the new Tomb Raider just released (I haven't seen it yet, though, and I haven't heard great things) this is still a great time to check out Lara Croft's long action figure history. Tomb Raider came out in 1996 when I was in Middle School and I've always had an affinity for Ms. Croft.

Deadpool- There aren't many Marvel characters that I could review multiple versions of over a month. Deadpool is one of those. I still have my childhood Toy Biz Deadpool and, with the impending Deadpool 2, this seems like a great time to check him out.

Lando Calrissian- Let's throw Lando in here, too. You know you like scoundrels! Plus, he's in Solo!

So, who do you want to see four action figure reviews of in April?


  1. When Tomb Raider hits home video, we will for sure review it on the pod. probably mid-summer!

  2. I will love to see any review you will make, but I have to vote for Indiana Jones. This character sums up my entire childhood.

  3. As much as I love Indiana Jones my vote goes to Bane. I'm sure there's some crazy, weird, fun Bane toys out there.

  4. I would have to vote for Lara Croft because of the new film and because there is very little coverage of her figures. Indiana Jones would be a close 2nd choice

  5. Captain America too!

  6. Deadpool please.....

  7. Deadpool puh-leese.

  8. Deadpool please...

  9. Well, it looks like Deadpool is the winner here. For April I'll be checking out some Deadpool figures every Saturday!
