Repackers! Pt. 5

February 12, 2013

First new post in what … a year? Two? I kind forgot about this blog. Heh .. eh. Anyway here’s a repack fresh from the returns. I found this last night while searching for new G.I. Joe Retaliation stuff.

Cobra Invasion Team Repack

In case you couldn’t tell, that’s not what the contents of the box are supposed to look like. Here’s what it’s supposed to look like …

All the gear is missing from the figures and Firefly has been completely replaced by a Retaliation Beachhead body and different head. How the good folks at Target got this by them I’ll never figure out. Maybe Cobra’s invasion team is better than I though.

Black & Blue

August 4, 2011

I was lucky enough to get a Hot Toys Black Widow while at Comic-Con. … Ok I confess, my girlfriend bought it for me. I probably would’ve never gotten it otherwise. Though I told her not to, she argued that it was her money and she could do as she pleases with it. Also, I’ve been wanting this figure for a good while and it’s becoming increasingly more difficult to find. I owe her and am totally grateful. Anyway, here are some recent photos I’ve taken, of the figure.

I have her displayed with the 501st Clone Trooper I got for Christmas, so they’ve become sort of an unofficial team.

You Take The Right

Look at that detail on her face sculpt! The resemblance to Scarlett Johansson is striking. Makes the price seem more reasonable.

Black And Blue

Gotta love crossovers.

501st Trooper And Black Widdow

The pistols she comes with have some nice detail, so wanted to do a series of shots showing her reloading from empty.



I actually YouTubed a vid on how to reload a pistol from empty, just so I could get an accurate depiction.

I love this figures. I used to be an avid 1:6 collector.  I’m slowly getting back int to it. They take more room and cost more than the smaller scaled figures, but with sculpting and detail like this one has it’s easy to get hooked.

SDCC ’11 – Excl. Cold Slither Zarana Review

July 28, 2011

Recently back from Comic-Con. I think it’s about time I started posting relevant material. First off is the SDCC ’11 Exclusive Cold Slither Zarana I got while there.

Cold Chillin'

While at the Con I had some time to do a quick review of the figure:

Here’s a quick video showing some of the stuff I got at the Convention:

Actually it’s the only day I bought anything at there. Not included in this video are the Exclusive Sentinel and Hot Toys Black Widow. Both of which were in the car at the time.

Anime Expo 2011 Haul

July 11, 2011

Here is my haul from Anime Expo this year:

AX2011 Haul

– Revoltech Assemble Borg –
– Revoltech Barrels Speeder –
– Asuka Figma –
– Chun-Li Statue –
– Little Mio & Azu-Nyan Boxed Figures –
– Persona 3 –
– A Bag of Little Super Famicoms –
– A Mystique Shirt (Not Pictured) –

I think that should about cover it. Besides, of course, the free stuff you get in the bag at badge pick up. Which includes a shirt, a Wakfu poster and a Magic The Gathering Starter Deck. My girlfriend, my friend and I each got different decks, and they were nice enough to give me theirs. So in the end I ended up with 3! I wonder just how many different types of decks there were?
