Lego 8519 Ben 10, Big Chill - Review

Howdy y'all.  It's Novelty from Toy a Day, and I have this great priviledge of writing here in this great blog.  I did promise 3B that my first review here will be something insectoid and I hope this is Insectoid enough, yet out of the box (haha! pun not intended).

But before I do that, lemme just introduce myself a little bit.  I'm opening a toy for each day of 2010, and was originally posting just pictures online with my random thoughts on the toys just opened.  That has since expanded into a full blown review, not only on Toy a Day, but I'm also guest blogging at various other blogs about the toys I'm opening.  Including this one!

In celebration of San Diego Comic Con International (starting today) I'm reviewing this 2005 figure released by Mattel from it's Batman Begins toy line.

WWE Royal Rumble, Beth Phoenix - Review

Straight from this year's Royal Rumble event comes the Glamazon, Beth Phoenix. She's the second female figure I purchase from Mattel's new WWE lines after Mickie James. Mickie ended up as an arm-donor for my DCUC Wonder Woman. Will Beth end up the same?

Hive News: More New Stuff!

Holy cow! It was a great toy haul earlier today, er... I mean yesterday (it's already past midnight?!). Lots of new addtions to on-going lines, a line I just recently delve into and a line I hadn't touched.

Here's a break down by store:

Toys R Us
WWE Legends
Dusty Rhodes
Ricky Steamboat

K-Mart (seriously!)
Iron Man 2 Comic Series
Crimson Dynamo
Titanium Man
Hulkbuster Iron Man

WWE Elite Big Show
UFC Brock Lesnar

I just finished the write up for that last figure and can't wait to post it as soon as I get the photos done. It's been a busy day for me and with San Diego Comic Con just over a week away, it seems it's going to be busy the rest of the month. No, I'm not attending (sadly), but in celebration of the biggest geek event of the year, I'll be reviewing two SDCC exclusives from my collection starting on Monday.

Stay tuned!

As part of Blog Mash Bash, this review is hosted by Novelty Nostalgia over at his excellent blog, Toy A Day! Buzz on over to check out the review and Novelty's own daily toy reviews. And stay tuned for a Killer B Hive review by Novelty!

Iron Man 2 Comic Series, Iron Man #30 (Neo-Classic) - Review

Today, instead of just another edition of Killer B Comics, we also have a review! It may be somewhat late in the game for an Iron Man 2 review, but I think this is a benchmark figure for me. I have successfully avoided Hasbro's 3.75" scale lines since they debuted... until now. Why? SWARM to find out!

Hive News: New Stuff!

These just came in yesterday from Amazon and I hope to have them reviewed/displayed on the Hive soon:

Optimus Prime is one of my all time favorite characters and although I don't collect Transformers, I usually buy the Optimus Prime figure from any series. The last one I purchased was the Leader class Optimus from the first live-action movie, so I'm excited about this one!

Stinger Shots: Webstor

Today's Stinger Shots features Webstor, a Masters of the Universe character I'm not very familiar with, but is a cool addition to the "Classics" collection. He is a "Master of Escape" and so his ready for adventure anytime. His pictorial turned out to be an adventure on it's own, so this post is a Stinger Shots/Killer B Comics hybrid. Enjoy!

WWE Legends, Stone Cold Steve Austin - Review

If you were a fan of pro-wrestling in the late '90s, it was probably because of this man. The "Texas Rattlesnake" ushered in the "Attitude" era and made WWE not just the top pro-wrestling promotion in the world, but a juggernaut in the world of entertainment. That was roughly 10 years ago and while lots of things have changed in the WWE, Stone Cold is still a beloved personality. So does this figure live up to Austin's legacy?...

Emerald Energy Spiral & Flat Beams - Review

Along with the Witching Axe of Ruination I ordered from Spy Monkey Creations, I also picked up two of their "Emerald Energy" construct accessories for my various DC Universe Classics Green Lanterns. Do they have the power to stop evil and make your DCUC display pop? Let's find out...
