WWE Elite, Mark Henry - Review

Here's a big boy from the world of professional wrestling, the so-called "World's Strongest Man", Mark Henry. Does he hold up to the excellent quality of the Elite Collection, or is he just fodder for your custom DCUC Kalibak? Find out!

WWE Legends, "Ravishing" Rick Rude - Review

Today we conclude "Foxy Ladies" week with someone who is NOT a lady, but he would believe himself to be a "fox". A WWE legend so despised by the male audience, whom he degraded regularly, yet the women in the stands went ga-ga for. After his matches one lucky gal would even get a kiss from the big stud. This lady-killing, piledriving machine is the "Ravishing One", Rick Rude.

WWE Legends, Jake "The Snake" Roberts - Review

My first-ever guest review on Lemonjuice McGee's website and it's on WWE Legend Jake "The Snake" Roberts. This one also features a bunch of comics, so head over to Hobotastic Toy Reviews and love it, baby!

DC Comics Super Heroes, Wonder Woman - Review

[This review originally appeared on Toy A Day. - 3B]

Hello, Toy-A-Day'ers! It's 3B and this week is "Foxy Ladies" week over at Killer B Hive. I wanted to share some of the foxiness with Novelty by reviewing today's foxy lass, Wonder Woman, here at Toy A Day. So we'll be looking at her action figure from a classic toy line I have fond memories of: Toy Biz's DC Comics Super Heroes!

James Cameron's Avatar, Neytiri - Review

"Foxy Ladies" week continues with a review of a big, blue, badass babe: Neytiri from James Cameron's low-budget indie film, Avatar (not to be confused with Avatar: The Last Airbender, which changed it's film name due to Cameron's flick). But does this sculpted piece of plastic do justice to the on-screen heroine? Let's find out!

Hive News: Blog Mash Bash

It's been a busy week here at the Hive with several comics and reviews I've been working on not just for my site, but a couple others sites as well!

There's a seriously fun review of WWE Legend Jake "The Snake" Roberts coming up at Hobotatsic Toy Reviews and yesterday I posted another review at Toy A Day, which you can view here.

That review carries on our "Foxy Lady" theme week with a look at Wonder Woman from the vintage DC Comics Super Heroes line by Toy Biz. Check it out!

DC Universe Classics, Cheetah (Classic & Modern) - Review

Our first "Foxy Lady" review is a 2 for 1 special! We're looking at both Classic and Modern Cheetahs from DC Universe Classics' wave 13. Initially I only wanted the Classic version, but I ended up getting both. Do these "foxy" feline figures do justice to one of Wonder Woman's most popular arch enemies? If so, which figure is the better one? Let's find out!

WWE Elite, Jack Swagger (Series 5) - Review

"The All-American American" Jack Swagger is part of the new generation of professional wrestlers in the WWE. He's not one of my favorite Superstars, but he's entertaining enough to warrant adding him to my collection. Was it worth it?

Let's find out!

WWE Entrance Greats, Chris Jericho - Review

One of the latest additions in Mattel's WWE Entrance Greats line, Chris Jericho arrives in his "Y2J" look from his WWF debut. Is this figure worth the premium price the Entrance Greats series demands? Or is it an easy pass?

The Buzz: Matty Sale, September

By now, I'm sure many of you know today is Matty's monthly sale day. There's the giant green and yellow battle gorilla from MotUC and Cheif Carnivus, to figures I have no interest in. I do, however, need me an Egon figure to FINALLY complete my GB team (albeit with a soiled Venkman), but it seems there is some hold up on the website. Odd, right?!

Anyway it's fast approaching 1:00pm in my sector of the globe and I still haven't gotten through to the order screen. Is it really this difficult with only three items available today? Will Egon sell out before I can order one? Are people still buying Ghostbuster figures?!

Thanks Mattel.

WWE Exclusive, "Ministry of Darkness" Undertaker- Review

Today I'm reviewing my third and final San Diego Comic Con 2010 exclusive from the Matty Collector sale this past August. This was the number one, and in many ways the only, SDCC exclusive item I wanted when they were revealed by Toy Guru on G4 and I am happy to present it to you in today's review.

It's the Undertaker in his Ministry of Darkness attire from WrestleMania XV!

Dick Tracy, Itchy - Review

Hey all, it's Novelty again, from Toy A Day.  Back there, I'm on Super Screened September, which basically means I'm opening toys that has links to both being a cartoon/animated series on TV and being a movie as well.  The "tent pole" holding up the big top, or the main event of the month is Dick Tracy, and like all main events, there are some sideshows here and there.  This is the sideshow here on Killer B Hive, and as usual, I try to pick something insect related.  Are you itching to find out what it is?  Swarm to find out more!

Batman: The Dark Knight Collection, Batmobile - Review

Today Novelty and I are switching seats, you get to read his review for Itchy from the Dick Tracy movie-line right here on the Hive, while I have a review of the 1990 Batmobile from Batman: The Dark Knight Collection over on Toy A Day!

WWE Legends, The Road Warriors - Review

Mattel's WWE line has been really impressive so far. Between the current Superstars represented in the Elite Collection and classic grapplers in the Legends line I'm up to 24 figures already! Today we're looking at a couple of yesterday's most popular wrestlers: The Road Warriors, Hawk and Animal!

Hive News: Minor delays

Hello! I had a review lined up for today, however my internet connection's been down for almost a week and things have fallen behind. Not to worry, though, I was able to get a couple of fresh comics out to Lemonjuice McGee's "Hobo-toons" on his website and one is already up for your digestive pleasure!

Hopefully, I'll have my connection up and running by tomorrow night and will be able to update the blog with a new review!

Stay tuned!

Stinger Shots: Plastic Man

This may be hard to believe, but I just now got around to opening Plastic Man. You could say it was the recent influx of new toys, including Orko and Ministry of Darkness Undertaker, both of which sold alongside Plas on Matty's SDCC sale day, but you'd be wrong. It was for one reason and one reason alone...

WWE Legends, Iron Sheik - Review

In the 1980s & early 1990s, Pro-wrestling was populated with larger than life, and super-stereotyped, characters who were very clearly defined as the good guys or the bad guys. One of the most popular, or rather despised, bad guys was the Iron Sheik, who in fact was born in Iran and played up the stereotypical anti-American Iranian role excellently. Let's see if his first release in Mattel's WWE Legends line lives up to his legendary status as one of the all-time great heels in Pro-wrestling history.
