Thor Ragnarok Marvel Legends: Hela and Some Thoughts On Cate Blanchett.

Image
What an awesome figure. Dude, just so great. Those antlers are so rad. If you don't know, now you know, that's Hela from Thor Ragnarok the upcoming Marvel flick that looks AMAZING! Hela is the big baddie in the joint. According to the trailers she has the power to squeeze Thor's magic hammer like a sponge. That's pretty dope. 

She just looks so evil. We went all over Santa Rosa and a couple other towns before I finally found her figure at Target, the Coddingtown one. I don't think she's that hard to find or anything. I just wanted her NOW! I was in like a toy frenzy. Do you ever get that way? Like you just have to have the figure that you want like RIGHT THIS SECOND! I was like that. 

Like I said a second ago Hela is played by the all time legend, Cate Blanchett who I totally lovc and when I saw mock ups of the figure I saw that she came with a little Blanchett head.. That was the selling point to me. Man, I am trying really hard not to fall down the Marvel Legen…

Mego Pics! The Greatest Guitarist Of All The Times... Jimi Hendrix

Image
Jimi was I think the 3rd of the new Megos that I got. If I remember right I got Sulu, Action Jackson and then found Jimi over at the Target by Costco. If you are curious I think I bought Fonzie next, Chekov and then finally Norm.. I might be wrong though.. 
Anyway Jimi was on my want list but it took me a minute to find him. I think after Dracula he was the most scarce of wave 1.
Ok so, I like him. I do, he looks like Jimi in the face for sure and I like his velveteen pants and his tassel shirt. This was a pretty spot-on recreation of his Woodstock outfit. The guitar is different though. He had a white one that day..

The one problem though is that he can't carry his guitar. I don't know how they could have made it so that he could. Maybe with a piece on the back that clicks on his hand or something? He could of at least had a strap on his guitar which might have helped to alleviate the problem. 
The best that I could do was having it sort of rest in his palm in photos. It looks go…

Mego Fighting Championship: Action Jackson Vs. Bruce Lee

Image
Hey kids. Here it begins. What you say? Only the greatest thing ever. A No Rules, Hand to Hand Combat tournament between the greatest combatants in the Mego World. 
What could be a better beginning than a battle between two of the finest fighters ever conceived, Judo/Karate Black Belt and dangerous Super-Spy, Action Jackson and the one and the only, The Dragon Bruce Lee...?  Nothing.  Let's take a look at the action.

Jackson is a black belt in Judo and may be able to snatch victory with a quick strangle.
The men work on the ground for a second when Lee proves to be a quality ground fighter in his own regard when he throws a back elbow to AJ's nose and escapes his grasp.
The athletic Lee proves to be too wiry to be held down, even for a black belt.
Lee gets free and a scramble ensues. Lee the quicker man gets to his feet first while Jackson struggles to make it upright when he trips on his Judo pants.
Before Action could fully stand Lee lands a devastating kick right to his face. Jac…

Mego Pics! Norm Peterson From Cheers! Drunken Toy Fun!

I love Cheers. I think it's great. It may be the best sitcom of all the times, either that or Mash. I don't know I haven't given it a ton of thought, that's a lie. I just don't want to get into it right now. Maybe/For Sure later though? (potential top 5 list?).Anyway, I love Cheers but didn't really think that I needed action figures from the show. I was wrong. I totally do. I didn't know it though, until I bought Norm..As we've discussed in the past I am WAY into the Mego relaunch that is taking place right as we speak. It's great and if you aren't down yet it's only because you haven't bought any of them because they are awesome and that is indisputable.Norm was the last one on my list of the current releases. I wasn't sure if I was going to get him or not  but when Target dropped the price down to 12.99 how could I pass it up? I mean look.. he comes with a little mug full of cold, foamy beer! Best accessory ever!
I like that pic up…
