S.H. Figuarts A New Hope Luke Skywalker Review (600 Words or Less)

“Farm-boy” Luke Skywalker from Star Wars, or Episode IV, or A New Hope, or whatever nomenclature you choose, is an older figure. Not traditionally old, mind you, but in a year when Hasbro releases a dozen waves of Legends, and the import companies push out regular product, this figure is over a year old. "Move [...]

My Take Aways from SDCC 2017

My Take Aways from SDCC 2017

I am writing this in a hotel room on an iPad during some family downtime, so hopefully it will come out ok. There were tons of great figures revealed this year, but as I said in my about page, I have very specific interests due, in no small part, to financial obligations and just outright [...]

Mafex Rey Plastic on Plastic Review

Mafex is one of those companies, maybe more so than any other company, that I constantly find myself rooting for when a new figure comes out.
