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!)


I’ve spent the last few months dreaming of toys… both old and new… and I was remembering that I bought a few issues of Lee’s Action Figure and Toy Review about 10 years ago. After a bit of research on the web, I decided I must put together a collection. (Why must everything be a […]


Back in June of 2012 it was announced that a Phoenix Force Colossus could be voted into a Toys-R-Us exclusive Avengers vs. X-Men minimates box set.

After months of rumors and speculation; the San Diego Comic Con 2012 Exclusives announcements have started to appear! As per previous years there is always some very cool and very collectable items… none more so than a Diamond Select Marvel Minimate of The Colossonaut!
