ReAction The Nightmare Before Christmas - Series 2

After some quiet time on the ReAction front, a new series just got released. If you loved the first Nightmare Before Christmas set, this will be an awesome addition to your collection. Two new Jack Skellingtons, and four new figures, especially my favorite - Oogie Boogie. Somewhere out there, there is a glow in the dark variant Oogie Boogie. Pretty darn cool. Excellent sculpting and fun figures.

Chubby Army Men

I was looking for some little green army men on Ebay. I discovered these. Too funny. Coming out of the orient, they are chubby green army men, and each one is eating or carrying some type of food.

Super7 - The Worst

Super7 has come up with some interesting toys over the last few years. They helped kickoff the Super7/ReAction 3-3/4" line with their "Kenner" Alien figures. Their latest offering is The Worst. They're not good, they're not bad - they're The Worst.  That's it. That is the entire description around these fun mashable villain figures that can fit in with any 3-3/4" figure set. Perhaps they should visit the Kenner Star Wars Cantina.

These figures can be purchased as a set at Super7 Store - The Worst.

NECA Aliens - Vasquez, Frost, Concept Alien

Yes! Yes! Yes! Finally, NECA releases more Colonial Marines from the Aliens movie. Rumors had it that for years, Jenette Goldstein would not release her likeness for licensed toys. Well, like Sigourney Weaver, she finally relented, and NECA hit another home run. Along with her character Vasquez, NECA also released Ricco Frost, one of the Marines that gets it early during their first run in with the Aliens on LV426. Both had some memorable lines which you can see here: Aliens quotes.

Star Wars Rogue One - 6 Inch Black Series

Yeah - I am one of those guys. I'll buy stuff before the release date. I won't go overboard but if I don't think I can get them locally, I'll go for it.

Force Friday is this Friday - when Rogue One merchandise goes on sale. Last year for The Force Awakens, I didn't go to midnight madness (too old to stay up that late). When I went to Target first thing in the morning, almost everything was sold out. Target under ordered the merch. So did Walmart when I went there, as well as Toys R Us.

So I really think these 6 inch Rogue figures are cool. SO yes, I bought them early.

The Rogue One figures include Jyn Erso, Captain Cassian Andor, Death Trooper, and K2SO. There is also a Rey with Lightsaber and unmasked Kylo Ren in this series. Finally, KMart released an exclusive Jyn Erso with poncho and diorama stand.
