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!)


Just noticed on Diamond Select’s Facebook page – they released a package shot of the Phoenix Five Colossus/Emma Frost two pack. Still no word on a official release date at Toys R Us (although http://www.artasylum.com/2013/05/marvel-now-minimates-are-coming-to-toys-r-us-in-new-packaging/ claims that should have been out by now… though I checked toysrus.com and evilbay and neither are listing it… so […]


My only San Diego Comic Con swag – the exclusive Jay & Silent Bob Black & White MiniMates – arrived in the mail yesterday… it is pretty cool. I look forward to seeing what the full View Askew series looks like – fingers crossed for a Mallrats “Operation Dark Knight” Silent Bob and the Golgothan […]


The Colossonaut was previously announced and previewed (unpainted) at SDCC 2012. But at ToyFair 2013 held in New York over the weekend – we get to see the painted version… looks pretty! The Colossonaut is packaged as an Uncanny X-Men three-pack along with Cyclops and Emma Frost.


After some nail-biting anticipation and fond memories; MattyCollector has posted great news: MOTUC Fans, You did it! In a last minute rush, you fans rallied the troops and saved Castle Grayskull®. Not only were enough pre-orders placed to hit the minimum production goal needed to go into production, you went all He-Man® vs. Skeletor® on […]


I have had these for ages – thanks to both ebay sellers for sending these on – despite being pre-orders (always dodgy on a limited number item). Just wanted to share “official” collection pics (actually taken on the same day as the Baltimore Comic Con… but have no fear these are San Diego Comic Con […]


Awesome! Great news from the Con – we are getting another Colossus action figure to look forward to in 2013. At the Hasbro Panel – the Marvel team announced a new team box set during their presentation.  The Uncanny X-Men 3-pack will include The Colossonaut, Emma Frost and Cyclops. It is based on the Juggernaut […]


So despite my complaining in the SDCC 2012 News post… I actually own this! Now in all likelihood I have probably wasted my money buying a pre-released item from a Chinese seller on eBay. It may well appear on the shelves soon… so all I can do is cash in now on the fact I […]


Remember this; nearly a year ago the Colossus/Juggernaut Two Pack was announced at San Diego Comic Con – for release in September 2011. Well it didn’t happen… delays, shifting of dates and rumors of cancelation are still rampant. The latest date I’ve seen is July 2012 which I am hoping will hold up… and as […]
