Transformers Siege War for Cybertron Hound

Transformers Siege War for Cybertron Hound
If you can't protect yourself, die and get out of the way of those who can.
The Transformers Siege Hound is the Hound that we want, and the Hound that we deserve.

In 2008 HasTak released  what we then thought was the "perfect"version of Hound - and to be fair in some aspects that we will get into later, it is better than the Siege version - but that version can be classed as.... cartoony. The Siege version has this "War-Machine"appeal to it, and - even if we're not a fan of the "effects" that you can purchase with the rest of the Siege line.

If we're right this is the first of the Transformers toys to precede the video game that it is based upon. We wonder if that's a software development deadline problem or if the developers were simply afraid that the third installment of the Transformers War for Cybertron trilogy would be a flop.

Marvel Legends Magik Review

Marvel Legends Magik
You believe yourselves immune to death? I bring you a gospel of oblivion.
I bring you the Soulsword. Taste it and cease to be.
We'd like to thank Marvel for making one of the rarest Marvel Legends figures - Magik - easier to attain. 

Though we're pretty sure that there are those out there who are seething that Magik's price range has dropped. Illayana Rasputin here used to be a 2015 SDCC exclusive that you could only get if you were able to purchase Marvel's Book of the Vishanti collection that includes: the Astral Plane version of Doctor Strange; Brother Voodoo, Hela and the great  Dormammu. Because it was an SDCC exclusive, we've seen Magik being sold alone - sans the Book of the Vishanti - for as high as US$275 (Roughly PhP 15,000). So when this was released? We had to have her - especially since Colossus and Shadowcat came out so beautifully.

RIP Stan "The Man" Lee

Stan Lee December 2016
The man who help light the flames that allowed me to travel to the stars; battle the forces of evil, and; fly; passed away last night. He was 95.

We lie in a room filled with toys based upon characters that he helped create, who are members of teams that he helped found.

This room seems darker now.

Rest in peace storyteller.

Favorite Halloween Cosplays of 2018

Halloween came and went and we couldn't help but be amazed by all the celebrities and models who dressed for the season. They get better and more glamorous with each year. So we thought we'd come up with a list of our favorites as gleamed off of Instagram. We initially started with 5, which grew to 10, which ended at 15. These are in no particular order - though we did save our favorite for last.

1) First up is Jinxkittiecosplay - AKA Kelsey Atkins, a 5'2 Slytheryn from the House Targaryen of South Africa and she went with a gender-bent Pennywise this season:

Marvel Legends SPdr wave Elektra Action Figure

Marvel Legends Elektra Action Figure
 I am Elektra, the assassin. To look upon me......is to see the end of life.
Marvel keeps pumping out Elektras and each one is even better than the last one. 

We remember the first Marvel Legends Elektra that was released a decade ago and it was praised for its articulation and beauty. There was that back-step though when Marvel released a version that came with the Sinister 6 pack. That was garbage. Then there was the Elektra that was released along with Ronin as part of a 2-pack. That was our standard for Elektra since then: decent articulation, good accessories, alternate hands and heads, and a great sculpt. That was our fall-to Elektra til the Elodie Yung's version that we reviewed here
