I just got my newest shipment in from the Loyal Subjects Super Double Diamond Club. Like every installment we got another translucent action vinyl figure. I really wish instead of saying you'd get exclusive action vinyl figures by joining the SDDC they would have said you'll get exclusive translucent figures. Every figure is the same gimmick and I'm tired of it. Can't get get Glow in the Dark or a special paint scheme. What a waist of money. I don't even think these figures display nice in or out of the package.

Hey guys, I'm working on the 2017 Retro Con Commercial and I needed to change Destro's O-Ring. This is just a little teaser for the Retro Con animation as well as a chance to talk about this classic action figure.

It's Force Friday! Did you go out at Midnight looking for new Star Wars toys? Why not? I checked out Toys R Us and Target to see what kind of fun Star Wars toys I could find. I felt like this Force Friday was basically an adult collector event for the Black Series. I didn't see as many young people looking for Lego and standard action figures as I did for the Force Awakens.

Revolution was a world building event comic book series published by IDW that combined several Hasbro properties. As Hasbro works towards building a Cinematic Universe this years SDCC Exclusive was a Revolution Box Set containing Transformer, GI Joe, Action Man, MASK, Visionaries, ROM and Micronauts action figures. This is a pretty fun set. I don't know how great the combined movie universe will be, but bring on the toys!

I know Paw Patrol is geared at a very different audience than this blog usually attracts, but as a kid I remember meeting characters at malls and grand openings of restaurants. I always thought that kind of stuff was really cool. Over the weekend I attended a the Paw Patrol Roll Patrol Road Tour, a huge event put on by Spin Master Toys. I went to the Road Tour with some friends and family and just had a really good time. I was really impressed with the detail that went into designing all the attractions. I think the Paw Patrol Roll Patrol Road Tour is this generations Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Coming Out of their Shells Tour or He-Man Power Tour. Just a really fun way for kids to experience their favorite tv/toy characters come to life.

Last weekend was the New Jersey Collectors Convention (NJCC). As usual I picked up a bunch of vintage action figures. Time to take a look at my haul! Power Rangers, Thundercats, COPS, Army Ants, and more.
