Product Review: Iron Man 3 The Mandarin Sixth Scale Figure by Hot Toys

Product Review: Iron Man 3 The Mandarin Sixth Scale Figure by Hot Toys

Product Summary: Marvel Studios' Iron Man 3 has broken box office records worldwide. From his first menacing appearance in early film trailers, to the surprising character twist in this blockbuster movie, this one-of-a-kind 'villian' is portrayed by Sir Ben Kingsley, giving an outstanding performance in this wonderfully peculiar role. Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys are happy to present The Mandarin Sixth Scale Collectible Figure, specially crafted based on the image of Sir Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin, highlighting a newly developed head sculpt, tailored costume with remarkable details, and accessories.

Our Take: The Iron Man franchise has taken the world by storm.  The third installment of the series finally gave us one of the coolest Iron Man comic book villains brought to life...the Mandarin!  There are few that make 1/6 scale figures to the level of quality and detail that Hot Toys does!   The fantastic quality begins with the outer box, which is covered in a cameouflauge deco.  When you open the package, you immediately get a colorful cardboard slip that tells you who worked on which aspect of the figure.  Kudos to Hot Toys for giving their artists the credit for their work, this is something that toy sculptors have fought for over the decades.   This is an amazing likeness of Sir Ben Kingsly.  I mean the sculpt is likelike.  The detail is amazing, down to the rings on his fingers.  He goes great in his stand, which has the Iron Man 3 logo on it and his name, or slumped in his chair looking all regal.  This is one of the most epic comic book villains of all time and this is most definately the definitive version of him!

Just Shoot Me - Season 1 & 2 DVD Review



Synopsis: Your Favorite Must-See TV Is Now A Must-Have DVD!
Just Shoot Me! seasons one and two delivers all 31 hilarious episodes from this long-reigning fixture (1997-2003) of NBC's classic comedy lineup. Nominated for six Emmy Awards and five Golden Globes (including Best Comedy), this acclaimed ensemble comedy spanned the hilarious gamut from catwalk to casting couch. Set in the bustling editorial offices of fashion magazine Blush, Just Shoot Me! chronicles the daily grind of the magazine's quirky staff, serving up all the laughter that's fit to print!

Review: There are a few great shows from the 1990s that still hold up as funny.  One of those shows was Just Shoot Me!  The show had a fantastic cast and some great comedy that still feels relevant today.  Thankfully, Mill Creek has gotten ahold of this great sit-com and released the first two seasons in a combo pack, which saves me shelf space and money!  Score.

Bewitched - Season 1 & 2 DVD Review



Synopsis: Double, Double Twice the Bewitching Trouble!
Elizabeth Montgomery stars as Samantha Stephens, a pretty, typical America housewife who just happens to be a witch in this beloved comedy classic! This magical 6 DVD collection includes the Emmy® Award-winning first and second seasons in their entirety. These were the first 74 episodes that introduced one of the funniest ensemble casts in TV History and enchanted viewers with a hysterically look at the lifestyles of the witch and famous!

Join Dick York as Samantha's mortal husband Darrin, Agnes Moorehead as his witch of a mother-in-law Endora, Alice Pearce as nosey neighbor Gladys Kravitz, George Tobias as her oblivious husband Abner, Marion Lorne as dotty Aunt Clara and Paul Lynde as Samantha's Uncle Arthur along with other 60 s pop icons Adam West, Raquel Welch, Peggy Lipton and Arte Johnson as they brew up hours of sidesplitting laughter and fun!

Review: When I grew up in the 1980s they used to re-run a lot of the old black and white shows.  I would watch the greats like I Love Lucy and Andy Griffith.  One of my all-time favorites, however, was the supernatural sit-com Betwitched!  This show comes from a time when television was safe and families could enjoy anything that came on the air.  Its hard to find a show these days that is appropriate for little ones and still enjoyable to watch.  This DVD release from Mill Creek gives us the first two seasons of the show at a great price.  This one should definately grace your collection!!
