Storm Collectibles Golden Axe Skeletons Review

  Storm Collectibles Golden Axe Skeletons Review 

Starting as a young boy, I've had an obsession with skeletons whether in some scary room of the dead or warriors fighting them in old school movies.  Skeleton toys were a big thing in the 80's when I was growing up but we never had a true skeleton to play with.  Enter Sega and the game Golden Axe, where you could enjoy beating up on some very cool skeletons.  So many cartoons in the 80's had some kind of skeleton bad guy or weird scene with skeletons in the background or rising from the dead.  Golden Axe became that game where I could play out fighting these creepy skeleton warriors. Fast forward to today and Storm is releasing figures from the game including the skeletons! Enough about my love for them, let's take a closer look to see how well Storm did at pulling off highly articulated skeletons.

Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective Nosferatu Review

Mezco Toyz 
Nosferatu
Mezco surprised everyone when they announced that they would be doing a figure from the 1922 silent German film Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror which was the first vampire film. It's a classic character that has had a major influence on all other vampire films that have come out since then. I honestly don't love vampires or the horror genre in general, but this figure is so visually appealing that it has become one of my favorite Mezco figures which is a pleasant surprise.

Storm Collectibles Mortal Kombat Raiden Review

 Storm Collectibles Mortal Kombat Raiden 

I really enjoy the products that Storm has released over the past year or so.  They are producing so many great lines I knew I couldn't collect them all so I chose Mortal Kombat.  I currently have all of the MK figures they have produced, but I passed on the bloody versions. In steps Raiden, a beloved character going all the way back to the first Mortal Kombat video game.  I've been anxiously waiting to get my hands on him, and when he finally arrived he didn't disappoint. Let's take a closer look at Raiden and if Storm collectibles really continues to make an excellent Mortal Kombat line.

Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective Gomez - The Clan of The Golden Dragon Review

 Mezco Toyz Gomez-The Clan of the Golden Dragon Review

First it was the White and Black Shadow Gomez Assassin that came out as Asia Goal exclusives.  I'll admit I was disappointed because I love ninja's and I wasn't going to pay the mark up on the figures.  I've held out and still don't own either of the White or Shadow Assassin Gomez and boy I'm glad I did.  Enter the SDCC 2020 Golden Dragon Gomez, it was exactly what I've been waiting for.  He wasn't the white or black but he still looked awesome and I purchased two of them.  Now that I have it in hand, it's exactly what I would expect to get from a ninja figure.

Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective MDX John Wick Review

Mezco Toyz John Wick Review
John Wick blew up on the scene a few years ago and has been a total hit!  Keanu is really at his best in this role, and the gun play and action sequences are excellent.  Mezco has taken his character from John Wick 2 and put him into a sophisticated 1/12 scale.  The hype for this figure has been ongoing for over a year, but when I finally got him in my hands I really feel like it’s average at best.  Mezco had a lot of time and pushed back the release date, all raising our hopes that this would truly be an ultimate figure. I was let down, but let's take a closer look at the final John Wick from Mezco Toyz.
