From the November, 1997 issue of Lee’s Action Figure News and Toy Review (Amazon.com search*) comes this full page ad for Hasbro’s 12-inch scale astronaut action figure in celebration of the first space shuttle launch. Despite how cool I find these 12-inch scale G.I. Joe action figures I actually don’t have very many of them; that’s probably a good thing... Read more →

Bog Goblin Added to Mythic Legions Project

Battlegrip.com - 21 February, 2015 - 02:48
The Four Horsemen have added the Bog Goblin to their project as an add-on action figure for $33. Looking at this guy immediately makes me think of the Dungeons & Dragons bullywugs (Wikipedia), and the addition of this and a few other items yesterday seems to have kicked the project and gotten things moving again. There are now about two... Read more →

Director Zack Snyder tweeted the first photo of actor Jason Momoa ("Khal Drogo" in "Game of Thrones", "Conan the Barbarian") as the celluloid version of DC Comics' AQUAMAN on February 20, 2015 (via Variety).

Right Hand Of Doom Red Ale

Plastic and Plush - 20 February, 2015 - 22:15
DH-Rogue-Hellboy-Beer-2

To celebrate the 21st anniversary of Mike Mignola's legendary Hellboy character, Dark Horse Comics and Rogue Ales have collaborated to create the Right Hand Of Doom Red Ale, a limited edition beer that will be available online beginning on February 22nd 2015

“Rogue Ales approached us with the idea of creating a heavy-handed, supernatural red ale and we loved the idea of two independent, Portland based companies coming together to create something new that would be both fun for fans and worthy of the Mike Mignola’s creative legacy” said Mike Richardson, President of Dark Horse.

My question...why a Red Ale? When I think Hellboy...I think a chili infused beer.

September, 1998 Look at Star Wars Action Figures

I’ve enjoyed the last few weeks of looking back at the Kenner Star Wars: Power of the Force toys of the nineties (Amazon.com search*). It’s astounding how many different releases Kenner produced between 1995 and the launch of Episode 1 in 1999; in just a little over three solid years the company managed to outperform the classic line in terms...
