Snake Eyes (2012 Renegades)

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 also displayed other unreleased toys at …

Storm Shadow (2012 Renegades Pack)

Storm Shadow (2012)

The Amazon exclusive Renegades four pack was a real unexpected oddity in several ways. Released with not much fanfare, it seemed to just show up suddenly alongside the first go round of Retaliation toys. By the way, Amazon also did a five pack for the film, though it was much less interesting than this set …

Law & Order (2011)

Law & Order (2011)

The original Law & Order have always been one of my favorite figures from 1987. As a follow up to Mutt & Junkyard, they served a similar purpose, but I never saw them as replacing the original K-9 unit. The 30th anniversary series was exciting for me. While I had enjoyed the detail and the …

Tunnel Rat (2011 Renegades)

SONY DSC

Continuing with another figure that’s been camped out on my queue all year, it’s Renegades Tunnel Rat from the 30th anniversary series. The Renegades figures were pleasing in the aspect that they didn’t rely too heavily on the animated style. The figures for the most part can stand next to other recent releases and fit …

Cobra Commander (2011 Renegades)

SONY DSC

Here’s another figure that’s been sitting in my queue for entirely too long. I’ve promised myself that I would clear out all these figures in the on-deck circle before the year is out. It’s not that I don’t like this version of the Commander, but I just haven’t been able to think of much to …

Cobra Ninja Viper (2012)

SONY DSC

When I saw the Amazon exclusive Renegades four pack, I was intrigued by three of the figures, with their incredibly different design styles. I didn’t pull the trigger on picking up the set until it recently dropped in price. I’m glad I did, as the style of the two ninja figures is a cool departure that reminds me a …

Ripcord (2011 Renegades)

SONY DSC

I’d like to call this post part of my “cleaning house” entries. Here’s a little peek inside how I manage this crazy endeavor that inexplicably continues despite my flagging sanity. Every few days, I venture into my collection, which is divided into sections consisting of 1) Vintage figures painstaking stored in those cute little tackle …

Scarlett (2011 Renegades)

SONY DSC

The Renegades cartoon really grew on me. At first, I thought the designs were odd, but that opinion was based on a few drawings posted online. Once I saw the animation itself, I found myself liking the new style. It was something different. The same goes for the storyline and characters. It wasn’t a rehash …
