The Tallest Jawa of Them All!: MOTUC Preternia He-Man

Preternia He-Man is this year’s Matty Collector Subscription-Exclusive, and I just so happen to have one (nevermind how).  I reviewed this time travelin’ warrior over on MTV Geek! and here’s the link to check it out:

MTV Geek! Preternia He-Man Review

Personally, I really, really like the figure.  I’m not sure why… maybe because it’s an obscure version of the hero, but I think I might actually dig it more than the regular version!  Of course, I could just be out of my head on model airplane glue.  You be the judge!

Feathers N’ Fins: DCUC vs. MOTUC Series 2

Mattel has recently released the 2nd series of DC Universe Classics VS. Masters of the Universe Classics 2 packs to Toys R’ Us stores.  While none of the characters are exactly favorites of mine, they do match up well when it comes to their water lovin’ or flying personas.  I really like the Mer-Man variant, and the Aquaman is top notch. The peg-warming pack here will definitely be the Hawkman and Stratos pack although their both nice figures.  There’s just something about Stratos that I hate…it’s gotta be that face… Anyway, check out my picture-heavy review at the link below:

“He’s The Juggernaut, Bi**h!” Marvel Select’s Juggernaut that is…

I picked this guy up at my local comic shop (Little Monster Comics in Somerset, KY.) for a sweet 20 bucks.  He’s HUGE, and while somewhat lacking in the articulation department, totally impresses in the ass-kicking department.  Check out my review over on MTV Geek:

Zippered Mask & Leather Gloves: DCUC Bane

DC Universe Classics Wave 16 will be hitting pegs soon, and is already in a lot of collector’s hands.  Here’s my review of the Collect & Connect figure of Bane.  He’s like a giant criminally-inclined luchadore that managed to stomp a mudhole in Batman… once. Of course, that’s more times than most villains can claim, so I guess that counts for somethin’. Oh, and the figure is very, very nice.

Got Crabs… Crabmasks?: GLC Kyle Rayner

“Kiss the ring motherflippers!”

That Kyle Rayner, such a jive-talkin’ pimp!  Women line up to get tossed in his fridge, if you know what I’m talkin’ about!  Well, if you wanna know more about what I’m saying, then head on over to MTV Geek and check out my review of Kyle:

Permanent Plastic Prison: Gray Ghost

[ Mattel has finally done it!  Those genius bastards have created an action figure that I refuse to open! ] – Lemonjuice McGee

As you can see above, that’s a figure of the Gray Ghost!  He first appeared in Batman: The Animated Series, so the JLU style this figure is done up in definitely makes sense.  You’re probably saying to yourself, “McGee, you fuckin’ HATE toys that don’t move, so what’s the deal you goddamn sellout?!”.

Well, this figure has a little something special going for it.  Wanna know what it is? Well hit the friggin’ More tab to find out!

Hasbro’s Wicket W. Warrick: Bringin’ the Pain!

“Yub, yub motherlickas!”  That’s exactly how Wicket talks when no one is watching.  “Cute” my ass!  Anyway, I’ve been breaking my usual collecting trends recently by picking up a few select Star Wars figures here and there.  Today I reviewed another from Hasbro‘s badass Vintage Collection:

They’ll Steal Your Heart: GLC Black Lanterns

Okay, so I started my Green Lantern Classics reviews, FINALLY!  First up are the 2 Black Lanterns from Series 1, Black Hand and Abin Sur.  However, as pointed out on IAT, the design of the costume is actually that of his son Amon Sur. Confusing, and I feel like an idiot for not catching it, considering how huge a Green Lantern fan I am.  anyway, here’s the link to the review over on MTV Geek:

Randor’s Attack Dogs: MOTUC Eternian Palace Guards 2 Pack

Awesome? Yes.  There’s just no question.  These guys are tough as fuck and come with a ton of extra bits.  Randor must feel like a little bitch everytime he’s around these guards.  Hell, the same probably goes for Man-At-Arms!  Anyway, here’s the link for all my fawning over on MTV Geek:

A very NECA Christmas: Greg Horn Interview

I recently interviewed Greg Horn (the go-to cover artist for Marvel‘s sexy ladies, and DC‘s Blackest Night zombies) about his recent Christmas tree.  It’s made entirely of Neca‘s Nightmare Before Christmas figures, and is quite rad.  Check that shit out at the link below from MTV Geek:
