NECA Ash (from 'Ash vs the Evil Dead') Figure Review

At this point NECA have done a whole bunch of Evil Dead figures from all the movies, but I was especially intrigued when they first showed off their figures based on the 2015 TV series.
There's something even more endearing about an older, grumpy and frumpier Ash.
I've picked up one figure so far from this series but after taking pictures of him the other night I realise that I should seriously get some more!

A point to note, there are two versions of this figure. After the below figure was released NECA went on to release an 'Ultimate' version that comes with 2 x extra heads, his 'woody' hand and a picture of his car.  Bloody typical, I should have waited haha.

Enjoy the pictures and review :)

S.H.Figuarts Freddie Mercury Action Figure Review

Here's something a bit different! When I saw this figure was announced I was surprised to say the least. As far as I was aware Figuarts only really did Anime and film stuff. They've done Bruce Lee figures too I suppose, but wow a Freddie Mercury figure? GENIUS!

Obviously the figure is based on Queen's Wembley 1986 appearance. It's a great choice for a figure, I'd love a full band set but I'm not holding my breath. Enjoy the pictures!

1/6 Hot Toys MMS409 Batman (Rebreather .Ver)

I mentioned on an earlier post that I also bought a new Batman recently. None other than the BATFLECK!

This is the 'Rebreather version' i.e. the one Hot Toys released under the Suicide Squad branding, having previously released Batfleck as part of their Batman vs Superman series.

This figure is a joy to pose and photograph. I had a blast taking the pictures. Enjoy :)

1/4 Enterbay Terminator 2 Figure Review

I've had this figure for a while. My personal opinion, this figure represents Enterbay's finest work. I might be a bit biased though as I'm a massive fan of the Terminator series and the man himself Arnie.

As the title suggests, this figure is a 1/4 scale figure. Which means he's pretty big standing at just under 19 inches tall. I always said I wouldn't get into buying larger figures and models like this, but I just had to make an exception here.

Full scale Lightsaber replicas

So when I was a kid, I would have killed for a high quality full scale Star Wars Lightsaber prop. I remember pouring over pictures of props in various books and magazines. Of course there was no way someone was going to spend a couple hundred pound on a Lightsaber for a child haha.

Roll on to adulthood and I can now waste my own money on such things, oh yeah!
I picked up a the following handmade Lightsaber prop from a fantastic company called Saberforge.
(I'll put a link to their site at the bottom of this post).

 Personally this is probably my favorite Saber of them all, Luke Skywalker's Lightsaber from Return of the Jedi.

1/6 Hot Toys MMS383 + MMS382 Suicide Squad Review

Over last Christmas I got various Suicide Squad figures. Yes I know the film wasn't the best ever and it divided fans like mad but I still maintain that the film has it's merits and I appreciate that they tried something different with the Joker, even though most people seem to hate it.

Lets face it though, it was always going to be a daunting task following up acts by Jack Nicholson, Mark Hamill and Heath Ledger. The quality of the film aside I thought the figures that Hot Toys produced for it where pretty eye catching and I operate on a rule that if the figure catches my eye enough, I don't care what it's based on I'll have it!

So far I've bought four Hot Toys figures based on the film, 2x Jokers, 1x Harley Quinn and Batman. Today I'm showing off the Jokers and Harley.
Enjoy the pictures and quick thoughts on each of the figures.
