Captivating Cover: Into Zartan’s Lair

9

Continuing the new feature in which I judge a GI Joe book by its cover, here’s another Captivating Cover. This time, we’ve got a coloring book released by Marvel in 1984. Marvel covered a variety of action figure properties with coloring and storybooks in the 1980s, from heavy hitter toy lines More >

by KansasBrawler

I don’t know why, but Road Pig has always had a huge following. It’s always boggled my mind a little. I wouldn’t think a shirtless bruiser would be so popular, but Larry Hama did such a great job with him in the comics and on his filecard that it’s hard not to be intrigued by this More >

Snake Eyes (2012 Renegades)

It’s funny to think that for all the stylistic flair of the Renegades animated series designs, the initial single carded figures didn’t fully reflect the show’s look. Then Amazon released their surprise four pack, and fans got a taste of what had been planned for  future Renegades toys. Hasbro More >

Video Review: Firebat Jet (2006 Sigma 6)

4

The Firebat Jet is one of the most impressive-looking Cobra jets of all time. Too bad it’s 2.5 inch scale. Regardless, it’s still a cool toy.

It’s another look at the Red Fang Ninja, one of the unexpectedly cool original figures from the 2009 movie line. Check out this blast from the past here.

BTR-Ticles: Raging Typhoon

by Twitziller

The Raging Typhoon was released in Built to Rule series 1 in 2003, and was the largest set from that series. Although it more closely resembles a 4-engine fan boat, the primary mode of the Raging Typhoon is described as a hovercraft and, as such, clearly recalls the popular 1984 More >

Video Review: Arctic HISS

It’s a special Father’s Day video review, with special guest reviewer Will. Check out the Arctic HISS tank. This is one vehicle I’d been wanting to pick up for years. I’m glad I did.

Ambush!

Drivers? Hey, cool. I could always use a few extras, especially a HISS Driver. That guy always lost his Cobra symbol too easily. What, you can’t order online? Great, where did I put my checkbook? And where the heck can I buy a stamp? It’s been so long…

Eaglehawk

Retaliation Tomahawk and Updraft

by KansasBrawler

I was a bit of a late-comer to the party that knew how awesome the original Tomahawk was. My brother had it when we were growing up, but honestly, I really didn’t care one way or another. I always preferred ground vehicles to air vehicles because they were a lot easier to work into More >

Snake Eyes (2004)

Yes, it’s yet another Snake Eyes, the man whose overexposure in geek culture/toy circles seems rivaled only by the likes of pop culture juggernauts Wolverine and Boba Fett. To a certain extent, many fans still love the guy, despite the fact he’s been everywhere in the Joe mythos for years and More >
