Masters Of The Universe Classics Commander Karg by Super7 Action Figure Review




After nearly a year of waiting, I finally received my "William Stout" Masters Of The Universe Classics Movie figures. I put the William Stout in quotes because when they were originally revealed they were called the William Stout Collection but these figures only say "Classics Collection" on the sides of the packaging.



I'm starting with Karg because he's technically the only repaint figure, God Skeletor is a repaint but he is still new and not a previously released figure like Karg. Like I always say, how does this movie variant of Karg compare to the original release?

Masters Of The Universe Classics Blade Review


When the Masters Of The Universe Classics line launched in 2008 one of the big things I wanted was new figures from the Masters Of The Universe The Motion Picture, and as I type this any day that dream will finally come true. I was also looking for Mattel to release new MOTUC versions of the movie characters that were released in 1987. I've already reviewed Gwildor and Saurod, as well as Karg who is the first new movie toy, but I've left Blade for last.

TMNT Leonardo NECA 7 Inch Classic Cartoon Action Figure Review

You'd think with all the pizza they eat the turtles would be horrible ninjas.
Today I have a review of Leonardo from the Donatello Leonardo two-pack from NECA's "7 Inch" Classic Cartoon TMNT action figure line. I was a big fan of Donatello from this pack so the question is... how is Leo?

Detective Comics 27 Review



Without a doubt Action Comics 1 is the most important, and expensive, comic book to ever come out. Not only did it invent the Superhero but it also launched The Golden Age of Comics and is also the comic book debut of Superman, Clark Kent, and Lois Lane. After Action Comics 1, the second most important, and again second most expensive comics book, is Detective Comics 27. Issue 27, for those who don't know, is the comic book where The Batman debuts. Like I mentioned in my Review Of Action Comics 1, The "Bat-man" in this story is very different from the hero we know now.

Batman, or The "Bat-man", was created in 1939 by Bob Kane and Bill Finger. These creators have been dead for many years now and the contract signed by Kane to bring Batman into Detective Comics has painted a poor picture of Bob Kane over the preceding years. I don't want to get into too much of it here but if you're interested in the history of the creation of Batman you should watch the documentary Batman and Bill which can currently be seen on Hulu. Now I do not have the millions to afford my own copy of Detective Comics 27 so I'll be reading it on the DC Universe app.

TMNT Donatello NECA 7 Inch Classic Cartoon Action Figure Review



Well, we've made it through the 2019 holiday season and I have to say that I did pretty good for Christmas. For being an adult male with a teenage child I was able to get mostly all toys, video games, or books about toys and video games. One nice thing this year is that my daughter is old enough to get me something that she'd know I'd like and this is what she picked out for me. The question is.... how did she do?

Games Beaten in 2019




Well, 2019 turned into a disappointment for me personally, professionally, financially, medically, pretty much all of the ways. Everything I had planned for the year never happened, I played no tabletop games except Strat-O-Matic, and I didn't play nearly as many video games as I wanted. I did purchase some new retro games including games for the Sega CD and NES but never the less I never played any of them. I bought Red Dead Redemption 2 when it came out at the end of 2018 and I still haven't played it. I have hundreds of games that I haven't played for one reason or another and like I've said before I'm hoping to change that for 2020.
