IAmElemental Courage Action Figure Review

Today we take a look at a toy that is long overdue for a review on this channel.

This is the 6.5″ Courage action figure from series 1 of IAmElemental. This is the Core figure of the line, which is made up of six smaller figures and features one deluxe figure that highlights the heroic element that ties the entire first series together, Courage.

NOTE: We were wrong about the articulation being over 20 points… it’s actually over 30 points of articulation!

Brian Volk-Weiss talks “The Toys That Made Us”

With Season 3 announced not long ago at SDCC 2018, Brian tells us about the new season, talks to us about how an episode of the show gets made, the dizzying amount of prep and research to craft an episode, and explains what toy lines we may see in future episodes, as well as what we definitively won’t.

He also informs us about a part of the show which will be cut from the newest season, and how long he thinks the series will last.

Plus, Brian shows our viewers the holy grails of his toy collection for the first time ever on camera!

Justice League Pinmates – Blind Box Unboxing & Review

Bif Bang Pow – WTF M8?

In this Mystery Figure Monday review, we unbox the Justice League Pinmates from Bif Bang Pow. These boxes were supposed to feature characters from the iconic looks of these DC comics characters.

Or this very cool Hall of Justice set, that includes Superman and Bizarro with a two-sided diorama –
