Battlegrip.com - 26 January, 2015 - 02:56
With the Transformers Encore Fortress Maximus* out there for sale there’s the chance that the toy could be recolored and released yet again, and that’s where this image at Deviantart comes into play.

TOYSREVIL'S I LIKE TOYS - 26 January, 2015 - 02:10
I have been seeing this intense dude up on Unbox Industries' Instagram for some time now, but am unsure if THIS is the first colorway of the 20cm tall vinyl to be released from Medicom Toy?

Battlegrip.com - 26 January, 2015 - 02:01
One of the coolest parts about Amazon.com is how third party sellers will list anything. Example: This GoBots Bubble Man* toy is being offered right now for $50ish and seeing it just drives home how much we need a GoBots book. Now I refuse to be the one to create such a book — can you imagine the cost of... Read more →

TOYSREVIL'S I LIKE TOYS - 26 January, 2015 - 01:47
I have not been following up on reportage of Medicom Toy's RETRO SOFUBI lines for some time now, with their earlier releases being characters from DC Comics ... but a scan thru their Twitter brought my attention to new MARVEL Comics characters, the Third Wave of releases, in fact! The latest trio includes classic costumes from THE VISION, GHOST RIDER (in "Johnny Blaze" outfit whoo-hoo) and

Star Wars Micro Collection TIE Fighter and X-Wing Commercial

Battlegrip.com - 25 January, 2015 - 05:03
It feels like even after three decades since the line failed the Star Wars Micro Collection toys just don’t get much attention. The line was a hard sell for Kenner — just how many millions of 3.75-inch scale Star Wars action figures were out in the world by 1982? — and it was closed down very quickly because of poor...
