Marvel Legends X-Men Series Sunfire Action Figure

Marvel Legends X-Men Series Sunfire Action Figure
I am the unquenchable fire!
Mavel Legend's Sunfire Action Figure is an excellent tribute to one of the less renown X-Men characters. 

Sunfire has a thing about teams in the sense that he's NOT a team player. He does however hold the distinction of being one of the only X-Men to also have been an Avenger having served - albeit briefly - in the Avengers Unity Squad alongside Havok, Rogue and Wolverine.

We remember years back when we were heavily into the Marvel RPG that we thought we figured out back then why Marvel kept Sunfire from joining the X-Men - he had the same Plasma Generation powers as Havok, and the same brash arrogance as Wolverine (Which is also probably why they killed off Thunderbird). Of course, today that oversimplification is a falsehood.

Still quite a waste. We think he would have made a great X-Man.

NECA Batman Arkham City Harley Quinn

NECA Batman Arkham City Harley Quinn Action Figure
"I promised you some entertainment, right, boys?" 
The NECA Batman Arkham City Harley Quinn is one of the coolest and hottest looking toys from the video game. 

We have mixed feelings about the Batman Arkham City game given that it ended with the death of the Joker - that's not a spoiler, if you don't know that you probably shouldn't be here.

Other than that it was a great game!

And we're quite partial to this particular outfit. Arkham Assylum game us Harley Quinn in a nurse outfit, which does satisfy certain fetishes we may have had, but in our opinion, this red and black punk rock outfit is more fitting for someone who would later command the remains of Joker's Clown Army.

Takara God Ginrai - Optimus Prime - Super Ginrai & Godbomber

Takara God Ginrai - Optimus Prime - Super Ginrai & Godbomber
God Ginrai - the product of the Takara LG-42 Godbomber upgrade - is the kind of upgrade that we’ve been waiting for, for a long, long, looong time.

And that's saying a lot.  If you go through this blog you'll find countless 3rd party upgrades. And we dare to state that, in terms of playability and sheer joy, the 3rd party upgrades have given us far, far more  happy-happy-joy-joy than their legit counterparts.

Then the LG-42 Godbomber came along. 

We're glad that the toymaking gods are finally listening to their worshipers.
