This week was a bit different as we finally got to see my wife's parents after 16 months of being separated. Wow! They came for a visit over Easter and it was great to get to spend some time with them. There was a lot of cleaning prep and such (our guest suite hadn't been used in a year and a half) and then once everyone was here we were mostly busy visiting. Also, as of today my wife and I have been vaccinated for 2 weeks, so that's a big deal! We've been busy with company and Easter and, yeah, I was down for a day or so with what I feared was the making of a wicked sinus infection (the pollen is horrible right now) but, still, lots of stuff to report, starting with last week's episode of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier....
More after the break...
This was a light week but we still have to finish up with the most popular reviews of the week:
Lastly, let's check out the most popular reviews of the past week. Not a whole lot of changes this week, oddly enough...
Mother Boxes from DC Comics Multiverse: Justice League is a review from 2017 that shot up in popularity no doubt due to how well received the Snyder cut of Justice League has been. These were a build an accessory that came with a few of the Walmart exclusive figures back when Mattel still had the DC license. This is its third week on the list so folks are still way into this.
Land Shark from Hot Wheels Premium: Masters of the Universe is proving to be a hit and is on its second week. The Land Shark is probably my favorite vehicle in the vintage MOTU line and Hot Wheels did a heck of a job with it.
The Scientist from Fortnite: Legendary Series is the only of Jazwares' deluxe Brawlers I've found so far. His bulkiness hurts his articulation and he has a hard time holding his weapons but he has some cool accessories and a great design. This his third week on the list. On a related note, Hasbro showed off their first Fortnite preorder and it's not very impressive. $40 bucks and it comes with just an umbrella? What in the world?
Battle Mode Kobra Khan from Vinyl SODA is the first chase variant from Funko's Vinyl SODA line I've managed to get and I was pretty thrilled to open a can and find him in there. I don't like snakes at all in real life but I love the MOTU Snakemen and I usually put Kobra Khan with them rather than with the Evil Warriors.
Aerial Threat from Fortnite: Legendary Series is probably the most boring figure in the line. I'm just not a sports fan but apparently plenty of other people are. His weapons are nice, though, as is his cool zombie soccer ball companion.
Trap Jaw from Masters of the Universe Origins adds another MOTU figure to the list this week. This guy turned out pretty nice. I actually found series four this week, too, but it'll be a minute before I get around to reviewing them.
That's it for this week! Tonight we're definitely watching The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and we may follow that up with Captain Marvel. Could Endgame be finished by the end of the weekend? We'll see!
