Picked this up on ebay – it is from Argentina and presumably unlicensed due to no copyright info. It’s pretty tiny – the whole thing not much taller than a regular trading card. I really like the depiction of the X-Men though – Cyclops is 6’3″, Colossus transformed towers at 7’5″, Wolverine clocks in at […]


Unopened collectibles that have piled up in the last few months. Because, you know… reasons. There are some awesome items in there though! A few I’ve procrastinated over for years and a few surprises I never knew of. (And yes, there is a 20″ Mr Stay Puft in the Mattel box!)
