Review – Transformers – Titans Return – Skullcruncher (Skullsmasher)

For the titans Returns line, Hasbro has opted to revisit the Headmasters gimmick of G1.  There are some other nods to the Target Masters and Power Masters, but the actual gimmick is heads that come off and turn into smaller robots that interact with the larger vehicles.  In the original run of Headmasters, there were 7 original toys, Skullcruncher, Mindwipe, Weirdwolf, Chromedome, Hardhead, Highbrow and Brainstorm.  Thankfully, for the updated designs, they dove right in nd gave us all 7, across the first two haves (one figure being a store […]

S.H. Figuarts – Mario

Nintendo has long been weirdly stingy with the license for their properties.  Sure, there has always been merchandise for Super Mario Brothers, but only recently have they really opened it up, at least for more toy style merchandise.  They seemed to have opened the flood gates too, between the Amiibo figurines, and the World of Nintendo toy line.  There is also a line put out by Bandai under their S.H.

Review – Marvel Legends – Juggernaut Wave – Kitty Pryde

Spider-man somehow gets a wave every other wave, completed with six out of eight figures being new Spider People.  Captain America gets a new figure every wave and Iron Man every other wave.  Somehow, the X-men, arguably Marvel’s most popular property, only warrants one wave a year, if they are lucky.  The last wave was the Jubilee BAF wave too, which is one of the worst disasters is crummy distribution in the history of the line making it extremely pricey on the secondary market.  Fortunately the Juggernaut wave seems to […]

Coming Soon, The All New, All the Same, Lameazoid.com

So, just a bit of site news here.  I’ve been working lately behind the scenes on a bit of a relaunch of the site. Ok, I know, I’ve done this before, repeatedly, many times, especially recently.  But I’m extra serious about it this time.  Serious enough that I’ve gone through the work of making up a spreadsheet and a schedule to keep things on track.  Serious enough that I have a set posting schedule every day of the week for reviews of some kind each day.  Serious enough that I’ve […]
