Hasbro Marvel Retro Series X-Men Action Figures
Oh dam. Hold onto your wallet TIGHTLY. This is going to cause the dollars to jump from your pockets. Hasbro have been releasing retro packaged action figures in between their Marvel Legends waves for a little over a year now (maybe longer) and while they are a welcome addition to those Marvel obsessed collections AND have provided a way to get much needed action figures which have sky rocketed in price into the hands of the poor johnny or jane come lately, they weren't really blowing anyone's hair back. NOW...with the release of an all X-Men wave with art echoing those KBToys 3 for 10 Toy Biz action figures....there is...a mighty need.

NECA's Street Scene Diorama: Wish Fulfilled!

NECA's Street Scene Diorama
In a world where Barbie gets houses, sports cars, private planes and full sets of glamping gear, the lonely 6-7 inch action figure collector is left crying in the rain. We were raised with playsets for each line we collected. Gargoyles got a castle. He-Man got a castle. Crystar got a castle. The freakin lion from Narnia....CASTLE!! Ok maybe it wasn't the lion's castle, but one of those movies got a castle and I bought the thing because...CASTLE!! I've always loved playsets, and as I grew older and shifted from going pew pew with my figures to setting them up in elaborate displays and action shots for photography, playsets became an essential tool. In the last few years, playsets have made a return with towering batcaves, turtle lairs and technological outposts from which Ben 10 and other cartoon heroes can defend the planet, but aside from these gimmick filled, cardboard enhanced, kid friendly kingdoms, there hasn't been much for toy photographers to work with. Then NECA answered the call!
