Yipee-kai-yay, Mr. Falcon! Sometimes, a toy run surprises you. I called an audible on a trip where I was actually flying solo for a change and swung in to Toys ‘R’ Us even though I wasn’t really looking for anything. Imagine my surprise when, after all their post-Christmas More >

Video Review: Micro Force

5

Will and I got together for a short review of some Micro Force figures. They’re a neat and fun little product, if a bit odd. Some folks won’t care for the prevalence of ninjas, but hey, it was movie related merchandise. And I can forgive it because SKULL HEADED NINJA!

Also, I goofed up and More >

Retaliation Tomahawk and Updraft

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 >

Video Review: Retaliation Ninja Commando 4×4 (2013)

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these video reviews. I finally bought the Ninja Commando 4×4 recently, and got a wild idea to do a video. It actually surprised me. Check it out…

Ultimate Flint is definitely a bit of a tough nut to crack. While I was okay with Roadblock’s ultimate incarnation being a Retaliation figure, I’m still not sure what I think about Ultimate Flint being based on the movie just because his portrayal wasn’t that great. There were More >

Much like Ultimate Cobra Commander, I wasn’t 100% sure I needed an Ultimate Storm Shadow based on his original look. First of all, like Cobra Commander, that look kind of got done to death during the 25th Anniversary line. Secondly, I’ve always had a lot stronger attachment to his More >

The Ninja Showdown set really typified the way figures are offered in three-packs. None of them required extensive new tooling…in fact, all three figures were just carded figures offered with different (and possibly better) accessories and in different (and definitely better) paint More >

Ultimate Cobra Commander

Field Report: Ultimate Cobra Commander

by KansasBrawler

Ultimate Cobra Commander is one of the reasons I was glad I just bought the entire Retaliation super wave online. I’m not sure what I would have thought of him the first time I saw him in person. He was a bubble figure. I wound up with a lot of versions of “classic” Cobra Commander More >

Ninja Showdown Snake Eyes

Field Report Friday: Ninja Showdown Snake Eyes

4
by KansasBrawler

Once again, I find three-packs to be the bane of my existence. They usually consist of one figure I desperately want, one that’s okay but one that I’d likely pass on if it were sold individually, and one that I have absolutely no interest whatsoever. When it came to the Ninja More >

Ultimate Roadblock (2013)

Ultimate Roadblock (2013)

It took three tries, but Hasbro made a really nice movie Roadblock. The previous two versions weren’t bad figures, they were just trying to accomplish different objectives. The first one, was all about an action feature, with his funky hand attachment. I kind of liked the fun of it, despite the More >
