I remember buying this Captain Atom annual as a kid and really liking It.The fight between he and Major Force at the end was pretty bad ass!He was one of the few non mainstream characters in the DC universe that I liked.I always thought he looked a little like Roy Scheider In the comics,the way he was drawn.
I've always wanted a 3 3/4 Captain Atom figure,just not this one.It's nice to finally have one ,but these are just crappy little figures.Limited articulation coupled with the odd positioning of the hands make them ,well, just odd.They're not even 3 3/4 ,I'm guessing 4 inches .I'm still looking out for the 3 3/4 public enemies or Infinite Heroes version .

This was ,without a doubt ,a Brother Midnight inspired post!Inspired by his skeleton army posts (They Are Coming),I had to run down to Dollar Tree and grab some skeletons of my own to have Zorn duke It out with.Ladies and gentlemen,skeleton wars have begun!!!

These little fellas are pretty dope!I've actually seen some of the series (not in depth but briefly) and liked it.I may have to revisit It at some point.I'll go over the Dino - bot and figures a little more later on this month.

I recently received a large amount of hand me down toys ,mostly DC with some Imaginext stuff .I donated alot of it but kept a few things.I've stated before how I wasn't the biggest DC fan nor their 3 3/4 figures.Most are pretty difficult to stand up and are in played with shape.I know the ones In the front are Young Justice figs but have no clue where the six inch Aquaman and Cyborg come from.They're not even marked/stamped with a date or brand.I'm assuming Mattel,though. The Batman Beyond figure along with the Aquaman and Nightwing seem to be from the 90's but they don't have a date stamp either.

It felt nice to add a M.A.S.K. folder to my collection of blog pics.Finally, I have something from the iconic 80's cartoon series to display In my retro collection.Whenever I'd see these figures on eBay I would hold out In hopes of coming across some In the wild or by way of trade.The wait paid off ,somewhat , as I was able to find both Matt Tracker and Miles Mayhem (one of, If not the best 80's villain names ,ever) for under 10 bucks.Mayhem went for 6 bucks and Matt Tracker was only 3 !It sucks that I wasn't able to find them complete with helmets.I would have paid extra for them.Still,It's nice to have some M.A.S.K. on the shelves.

I said I had had It with the influx of Funko but when I first laid eyes on this figure In the movie/media section of my Target ,It left an impression.So much so that I had to go back for It .Son of Zorn was a Roger Rabbit like series that lasted only one season before being cancelled.The show starred Zorn ,a barbarian who moves to Orange County California to reconnect with Ex-Wife and son. I've only caught snippets of It on Hulu. Hopefully they will release the whole season at some point.
Collect all two! lol!
Funko borrows from older styled Remco action figures for their Zorn design and totally pulled It off.I ,honestly , can't say a bad thing about this action figure.Everything on It has been executed pretty much flawlessly.Like I've stated in the past,I like going after figures that appeal to the kid In me.Zorn would have immediately been moved to the top of my action figure ranks.He's that bad ass.And that sword..!
Zorn sports 6 points of articulation ,including the all important swivel waist for action poses.He also has a functioning holster for sword storage.
At first I thought I had a defective figure but It turns out....
...Zorn is balding on the show.Funny shit!
Here he is next to Remco's Lost World of Warlord Arak and Mattel's Motu He-Man .As you can see,he fits In nicely,almost outshining the vintage figures.
