Ghostbusters Dana Barrett 7 Inch Diamond Select Action Figure Review

Here we go with my new Ghostbusters obsession. When I get into something I go all out so I'm already acting like a junky. After I bought Egon Spengler I started looking for more figures. I went to Toys R Us again to look at the new figures and nearly bought them but held off since I wouldn't get any of the roof pieces. So I went looking online and found Dana and her mystery date for only 10 bucks since, according to the listing, the boxes were damaged. I was fine with that since I would be opening them up and honestly I couldn't find anything wrong with them.

Terminator Genisys The Miniatures Game

I received this in the mail today all the why from England, hand delivered to me by my daughter. I'm a big fan of the Terminator franchise and was interested in getting this game when it came out but I never pulled the trigger. When I found this new and really cheap I fired away. I've already started painting the miniatures plus some extra packs I thought were cool so look forward to those soon. I'll be back.

Ghostbusters Egon Spengler 7 Inch Diamond Select Action Figure Review

So I'm at the mall buying crap with my wife. She knows I'm going to stop in the toy/gaming/comic book shop if I go with her to the clothes stores. I know she tries to keep me from there because I'm impulsive and always go for the most expensive thing. Anyway once I'm inside I see this guy and I was all in. I love the Ghostbusters and Egon in particular so 25 dollars (plus tax) and he's mine.

Apocalypse Survivors: The Men Review

Apocalypse Survivors: The Men kind of explains itself and is in the scale of 28mm and made by Wargames Factory. The box contains enough pieces to make 30 men of the apocalypse and I bought my box for $19.99 with free shipping giving me a price of $0.67 per man.

The Terminator Tech Noir Action Figure Review

The other day my wife and I were at Toys R Us looking for Five Nights At Freddy's (FNAF) toys for my daughter. Of course, they didn't have what we were looking for but we did find another FNAF plushy that she wanted. Once the plushy was secure I wandered off and found a whole section with acting figures based off movies that were big when I was a kid. I saw figures from Robocop, Predator, Ghostbusters and so on. I was down to either buying one of two that I liked. The first was a Walter Peck action figure from Ghostbusters. I laughed when I found him because he's the character everyone loves to hate but he's not really action figure material. He didn't even come with any accessories! My other pick was also from Ghostbusters, the scene when Venkman was slimed by Slimer. an iconic scene from Ghostbusters which was what I was going to pick when I saw The Terminator.

Tetris (GameBoy) Review

Tetris is the brainchild of Alexey Pajitnov, a nice man from Russia. Since it's debut it has been ported to every single video game contraption ever released. There is a reason for this and it's because Tetris is a very simple but challenging game and is loads of fun. Tetris was not only a launch game for the GameBoy but was also the pack-in game for it. Because of this Tetris has been called, "The game that sold millions of Gameboys." The author of that quote is was me but all jesting aside the game was instrumental in the Gameboy's history.

Free Clock Tower Terrain From Mystic Mountain Productions

When it comes to terrain I usually like to make it myself instead of purchasing prebuilt. There are two reasons for this, one is because I enjoy building it and two is because it is way cheaper to do it yourself. Some of my terrain is homemade and the rest of the buildings are paper terrain that I bought off the Internet. Besides your own time, paper terrain really doesn't cost very much to build. Also one of the nice things about paper terrain is that companies sometimes release a small piece of terrain for free which lets you try it out before committing your hard earned money.

Adam Wolfe (mobile) Review

Adam Wolfe is a "hidden object" game from Mad Head Games. The game was originally released on Steam and has now been ported to mobile devices. This game is billed as a hidden object game which can be fun but I usually get bored with them pretty quickly. Thankfully Adam Wolfe is much more than just a hidden object game but does that make it a good game?
