I know. I know. I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking: “My friendly neighborhood jman… everyone and their mother has been reviewing this movie. Why do I care what you think? Why even bother writing a review at this point? Talk about a day late and a dollar short!”
I have to admit, that’s a fair enough assessment, on your part. An assessment that instinctively makes me want to reply with a “nuts to you” remark. But, instead, I’ll say perhaps we should look upon the following article as more of an ad hoc dissertation, than a review? That way you’ll still read it and I’ll still have the satisfaction of once again entertaining you 1.
Either way, you’ve come this far, so you might as well make with the reading…
I don’t know if you know this about me or not, but I’m not a big fan of surprises. At all. Even though in life you can’t be prepared for everything (most things, really), your friendly neighborhood jman likes to fool himself that he can be. Cause in life, most surprises tend to be…ungood. Like, when you get home from two days at Toy Fair at 8 o clock at night, and it’s nearly 10 below and your car won’t start.
Four figures. Man! I usually don’t like to review this many at once, but it just sorta came together that way. Actually, I’m really only looking at three, cause the fourth figure? I am just not crazy about at all!
But, we will cross that bridge soon enough. In the meantime? Strap in, yo!
First up? The best figure of the lot. Batman from Arkham Origins by DC Collectibles. I wasn’t real sure about this figure at first. A few folks out in internetsland were saying how bad the paint apps were on the figures they got. Sometimes these things are to tell while the figure is in the packaging.
It seems as though Funko is firing on all cylinders any more. Snapping up licenses left and right for it’s Pop! Vinyl collection. And now? They’re deepening their Walking Dead line (based on the über successful AMC show)with a new assortment of 7 inch vinyl figures.
The designs of these new figures are actually based off of some of Funko’s previously released 2.5 inch blind boxed “Mystery Mini” figures. Included in the new larger size assortment are Daryl Dixon, Prison Guard Walker and RV Walker.
Our unofficial One Week from Asgard continues with a discussion of Marvel Select’s Thor figure from Thor: The Dark World.
Rather, our unofficial Week from Asgard should continue with our discussion of yakyakyak. But, in my infinite short sightedness, I didn’t pick up the Thor figure in time. What can I say? When the big guy upstairs sends you down idears, he should make sure you’re able to get everything you need to set said idear into motion.
