Hasbro GI JOE Classified Series Cobra Pimp Daddy Destro Review

GI JOE Classified Cobra Pimp Daddy Destro 

It's been a long time since we had new GI JOE figures from Hasbro in our hands, but its starting to look like it was worth the wait. I've been picking up the majority of the 6" classified series, but right now I think Pimp Daddy Destro is my favorite in the current line.  Now this isn't the same level of figure we are used to reviewing with the $23 price tag, but it doesn't matter its a great figure. Hasbro released the original deco Destro in wave 1, but I'm really happy they went with this repaint for him.  Lets take a closer look at what Hasbro is offering us now in the 6" scale.

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 
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.
