“Real Ghostbusters” Peter Venkman figure review from Diamond Select

It’s time for some more Ghostbusters goodness, courtesy of Diamond Select and their “Real Ghostbusters” action figures! Today we look at Peter Venkman in all his cartoon glory, which may be one of my favorites of the line so far.

As far as replicating the look and feel of his animated counterpart, this Peter Venkman figure may be the most accurate of the entire line.

“Marvel Legends” Stan Lee bootleg figure review

Excelsior, true believers! Today we take a look at a bootleg figure of the man behind Marvel Comics, Stan Lee!

Supposedly this figure was supposed to be released as a build-a-figure in some Target exclusive two-packs for “Black Panther”, but for some reason it was cancelled. Since then, it’s become an interesting kitbash of a figure (or knock-off) that’s been coming out of Hong Kong, and here is your chance to take an up-close look at it in case you have any interest in a figure like this!

WWE Retro Red Sting figure review

Today we review the WWE Retro figure of Red Sting, AKA Wolfpac Sting from WCW. I believe any red versions of the Stinger are superior to their black & white versions, and this figure, which is a repaint of an earlier B&W figure, is pretty cool as far as I am concerned. Check out the video to see what we think, as well as how his action feature functions (spoiler: it’s crazy good)!

Check Out Our Behind The Scenes Photos From “Joker”

The upcoming “Joker” film has many fans nervous with anticipation. This version of the iconic Batman villain seems like they’ve taken the familiar foe out of Gotham and thrown him into Martin Scorcese’s “Taxi Driver”. It’s gritty, it’s dirty – but it’s really just New York in the 1970’s! Today, we have some very special behind-the-scenes photos for you, thanks to a very generous photographer!

These photos come to us from Rahkim Bryant, who was on set for the filming of “Joker“. Make sure to follow him on Instagram to see video from the set, as well as some of the other productions he has been a part of.

Rahkim was a set photographer for a specific part of the production, and had a few shots of his own that were separate from the work he was hired to do. He was gracious enough to allow us to share these with you, so we hope you enjoy the shots!

“Joker” stars Joaquin Phoenix, Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Frances Conroy, Marc Maron, Bill Camp, Glenn Fleshler, Shea Whigham, Brett Cullen, Douglas Hodge, and Josh Pais. It was directed byTodd Phillips.

The film hits theaters on October 4, 2019.

Super7 Reveals HUGE Snake Mountain Playset

Fans of Masters of the Universe have had a very fortuitous decade or so, with modern updated versions of all of their favorite figures and some of their playsets. One of the holy grails for MOTUC collectors was the Castle Grayskull playset, but now Super7 has a new product that will rival that and nearly every other playset ever.

Over on their blog, Super7 unveiled the enormous Masters of the Universe Collector’s Choice Snake Mountain Playset. Standing 36-inches high and opening up 48-inches wide, this is the largest MOTU playset ever made. Good luck finding a place to put this!

Skeletor’s crib is based on the original playset, just scaled up since these figures are much larger. Just check out the comparision of the seven-inch figures look next to this thing in the picture above!

The Masters of the Universe Collector’s Choice Snake Mountain Playset will be available for pre-order from May 1st to 31st for $600 (plus shipping). If that price is too daunting for you, a six month payment plan will be available. No Figures are included with the playset, but you do get plenty of other great details and accessories.

We didn’t see this during NY Toy Fair, but we did see figures based on the live-action He-Man movie which looked amazing. They are also in-scale with this massive playset!

My favorite accessory – the BONE THRONE!

The highly detailed Snake Mountain playset features:

  • Demon with moveable jaw
  • Narrow bridge of red hot lava falls
  • Functioning trap door
  • Real chains to shackle Skeletor’s enemies
  • Break-away wall secret entrance
  • Skeletor’s table and bone throne
  • Horrifying dungeon creatures
  • and more!

You can view more pics of the playset on their website.
