Both the Animaniacs Pop figures and Pinky and the Brain Pop figures are perfect representations of the cartoons. The Animaniacs and Pinky and the Brain were a staple of Saturday morning cartoon viewing for a generation of nerds and geeks. Totally not me, though.

I spent a decent portion of my youth parked in front of a screen, an NES paddle clutched in my hands, navigating through alien caverns, fighting through endless enemy fleets, slaying rogue slimes, and basically being absorbed into a bunch of fantastical 8-bit worlds. Primary among my first gaming loves was the original Metroid. It… Continue reading Thumbs Up for Good Smile Company’s Samus Action Figure
Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, Start. If you recognize this sequence, you are a child of the original NES era of gaming in general and amazing side-scroll shoot-em-up Contra in particular. If you don’t, it’s the code that gave you 30 extra lives in Conta, something that was necessary for actually… Continue reading NECA’s Classic Contra Action Figures Are Now Available!
Just yesterday, we went over the Plays Arts Kai figures of Squall and Sephiroth that are on the way. As it turns out, they’re not the only figures on the horizon.
