Well everyone, it’s my last post before San Diego Comic Con this year, and I finally finished the Hasbro Marvel Legends Caliban Build-A-Figure wave. Instead of breaking down each figure, I went ahead and combined Beast, Weapon X, and Caliban for everyone to enjoy all at once. This wave was actually really solid. Beast looks great, Weapon X is nice, and Caliban has a great hands and a good head sculpt. Add in the four first time figures in this wave, and you have a good set of Hasbro Marvel Legends. However, the Jubilee is by far the best figure in this set. Check out the full review to learn more, and I will catch everyone during San Diego to see what they showcase.

Today in the Toyverse, we dive into the world of Extreme-Sets and look at not only the Sector 07 Docking Bay Pop Up Diorama, but also the Sector 07 Modular Panels Pop Up Diorama. So a very special thank you to Extreme-Sets for making this review possible. Now lets start with the Docking Bay Pop-Up. This set is amazing! The details are great, the panels are easy to assemble and you get two really cool docking doors. The air bed is a nice touch, and this thing will look great with a lot of different space toy franchises. I actually was curious if Star Trek figures would work with this set, and I have to say it works really well.
Now as it relates to the Modular Pop-Up Diorama, I love this set as well. Not only is the price point fair, but it can be used in so many different ways. For a few days, I spent a lot of time messing around with the 10 panels that are included in this set. I had a blast doing it,and have found that this Diorama is great for shots when you don’t want to pull everything out from the Sector 07 Docking Bay. But on that note, the Modular set does make the Docking Bay shine in tremendous form. Anyways, check out the full review to learn more.
Today in the Toyverse, I get the chance to look at the DC Vinimate Series Five Shazam Vinimate from Diamond Select Toys. This Vinimate packs a thunderous display. He is sculpted and painted great! The red for the outfit is vibrant and clean. The cape is well painted and fits in well with the pose that Shazam is in. The cool thing about this version of the character is the lightning choice by Diamond Select. Initially it looked like the lightning effect was done in a light solid blue, but the final product has a translucent look to it, and I love it. Hopefully you will too.

Hey everyone, today I examine the Soap Studios Bank Robber Joker figure. before I get going, a special thank you to Soap Studios for making the review possible today. So being honest,e very release from Soap Studios continues to get better and better. And this Joker figure really came out great, I mean they killed it in terms of design. packed with a fair amount of accessories and alternate heads, and soft goods that work really well. Overall I can’t recommend this figure enough. I know the price is high, but if you want a cool Joker figure in your collection that has soft goods, this is a great choice. Check out the full review to learn more.
