Let’s just get this out of the way right now… Kurt Russell is a gosh-darn national treasure. The guy is amazing in everything he does and he always seem to be having fun doing it. When I learned he was going to Ego the Living Planet in the MCU I immediately thought “This is theContinue reading “Ego Dorbz (2017)”
The new TRU exclusive Dorbz is both awesome and unexpected! I was pleasantly surprised when I found the clear “Bloody” Dorbz but they outdid themselves when I saw the Alien inspired Facehugger exclusive! The character with the baby Xenomorph attached to his face is just so great – still one of the greatest scenes inContinue reading “Alien & Facehugger Dorbz (2018)”
It’s funny how last year seemed to be the year of Wolverine as far as toys and collectibles go but he was MIA in the comics. There was a rumor floating around – one that was somewhat substantiated later – that the Head of Marvel made the characters that weren’t under the MCU umbrella disappear from theContinue reading “Weapon X Dorbz (2017)”
I was late to the party when I realized how great the Walgreens exclusives began surfacing. I missed out on all sorts of Pops and Dorbz that I would love to purchase. Venom, Carnage, Spider-Man 2099 are all Pops that kick butt! I would rather not go to eBay so instead I do without. IContinue reading “Compound Hulk Dorbz (2017)”
When I found the clear “bloody” variant I immediately thought that I wanted to seek out a regular Predator Dorbz. Luckily, it didn’t take me too long to find one – although I only found one! The Predator paint application is awesome! The little skulls strapped to his pudgy little belly gives all who opposeContinue reading “Predator Dorbz (2018)”
Walgreen’s has really been stepping it up as far as exclusives. Their contract with Marvel was one of the best moves they could have possibly made. The Funko and Hasbro figures are some of the most wanted figures you could ask for. Venom, Carnage, Spider-Man 2099 and this – The Iron Spider!
In the days before the internet you had to hope that any stores hosting exclusive figures (which first occurred to me in the 90’s with, of all things, Star Wars) was an easy car drive away. Now. of course, with access a computer, everything is just a mouse click away. Whenever I heard that Books a MillionContinue reading “Gladiator Hulk Exclusive Dorbz (2017)”
I do love these Dorbz – but the fact that the Hulk Dorbz from the Thor: Ranarok movie all were either exclusive or limited did make obtaining them a little more frustrating. I know some people thought it was more exciting – but for me it just meant having to rely on the inter-webs toContinue reading “Thor: Ragnarok Hulk Dorbz (2017)”
I think the Dorbz maybe more fun to collect than Pops. Hear me out – for one, Dorbz don’t have to be bobble heads. I’m not sure how exactly they get away with this – especially since Pop figures cannot – but it’s what makes me like the Dorbz that much more. Granted, Dorbz don’tContinue reading “Thundercats Dorbz 3-Pack (2017)”
The original GoG Dorbz set had a pretty great Rocket. This one is not much different except the clothing. The original Raccoon had an orange jumpsuit and this one, being more fashionable, rocks this blue space overalls. He also sports a couple of guns – which is Rocket’s specialty – so, you know… it fits.
The tradition of Non-Hulk Thursday continues today as I show off a few Funko collectibles. There is no doubt Funko has become a juggernaut in the toy and collectible space and my theory is that they purchased every conceivable license out there so that they could dominate the market place. How else can you explainContinue reading “Funko Thursday!”
If there is one thing I remember fondly from my childhood that would be the Turtles. I knew them from the 80’s cartoon – but my friend Corry had just read the comics. He felt the cartoons and subsequent movies were bastardizations of what the turtles really were. For me – I just liked watchingContinue reading “TMNT Dorbz (2015)”
I have to confess – I prefer the Dorbz figures over the Pop figures that everyone else seems to be going crazy over. I know that there is a Pop figure for… well, pretty much everything over the sun. Even Sixteen Candles. Who was looking for Sixteen Candles collectibles? Apparently, someone. I enjoy the DorbzContinue reading “Over Sized Dorbz Rocket Raccoon (2015)”
More and more unique Marvel figures are popping up on the scene. Shockingly, even some NOT produced by Funko! There are quite a few imported pieces making their way on eBay – but this post is about one of the new series of figures littering the shelves this side of the pond. Dorbz are cute,Continue reading “Hulk Dorbz (2016)”
