King Randor - Vintage MOTU

As a kid I was a die-hard Masters of the Universe fan during the few years the He-Man cartoon was on the air. Later after the show was over and I stopped collecting the figures I remember seeing the King Randor for the vintage MOTU line at KB Toys. I couldn't believe they finally made the King, and the Sorceress. Both figures I wanted very much at an earlier point in th lines history. I gave up on He-Man and Thundercats after their shows ended to play with figures like GIJoe that did have a current cartoon

Many, many years later I finally got the vintage King Randor. No he's not perfect or complete... but I can always upgrade him later. Randor had a standard Masters body with recycled Jitsu armor. He had a new head with a removable crown. Additionally he came with a cloth blue cape and a gold version of Whiplash's spear.

This Randor is far more muscular, armored, and battle ready than the King Randor we saw in the cartoon, but he's still a fun figure. Now we kind of see where Prince Adam gets his fashion sense from.

Star Wars the Force Awakens Peg Warmers

Today Ryan and I check out some of the less interesting Star Wars the Force Awakens action figures. Almost every toy line has a peg warmer, that figure that seems to linger on store shelves forever. Star Wars as a brand is know for making action figures of characters with mere seconds of screen time. These background characters unless very interesting or memorable often hang around store clogging up the pegs.

Golden Freddy review w/ MandoPony (Five Nights at Freddy's)

Five Nights at Freddy's is a super popular horror themed  video game. Inspired by the creepy animatronics at Chuck E. Cheese, Freddy and his friends do a lot more than sing and dance. I had the opportunity to shoot a review of the Golden Freddy figure by Funko with YouTuber MandoPony while at TooManyGames a few weeks ago.

Masters of the Universe Minis

Today we are taking a look at some MOTU Minis from Matty Collector. Check out these cartoony 2-packs featuring Zodac & Beastman, Man-At-Arms & Faker, and King He-Man & Clawful. These little figures have tons of scultped and painted details. They have limited articulation, but a lot compared to most mini-figures.

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July everybody! I filmed a short Power Rangers Dino Charge adventure complete with some pyrotechnics. It's hard trying to set up the camera to get the explosion just right. I included last years clips from my old youtube channel as well.

Here's one of my favorite freeze frames from the video. Sledge looks awesome looking through the blast. It's so bright on the one side you can barley make out Ice Age or any of the other monsters on that side of the photo.

It's 4th of July Eve!

Well the neighbors are all setting off fireworks so I decided to fire off a few fire crackers and film it. Last time I made a 4th of July video I got a few fun freeze frames of the explosion in from of some Power Ranger Megaforce figures. Maybe we can make some magic happen again. Stay safe!

Master Sldege and his forces march through the flames of war in their never ending battle to steal the Dino Charge Power Rangers' Energems.

Action Figures with Spring Loaded Wings & Pixel Dan!

As a child of the 80's I always loved the spring loaded wing action feature incorporated into Silverhawks. Kenner used this feature several times including Golden Pharaoh from Super Powers and Shadow Wing Batman. Recently Playmates included a similar feature in Wingsuit Raphael from the new Ninja Turtles movie toy line. Last weekend at TooManyGames I got to hang out with Pixel Dan and we filmed a fun video talking about this feature. It was cool getting hang out with Dan again and I you guys enjoy the video we filmed.
