Equipment: Hallmark 50th Anniversary U.S.S. Enterprise Keepsake Ornament

50 years is a long time. It is a long time to be married,dscn4560 a long time to be alive but if you are a television show, 50 years is an unprecedented long time to stay popular. The television show I am talking about is Star Trek: The Original Series. In 1966 a new science fiction show created by a LAPD motorcycle cop premiered and the sci-fi landscape was changed forever. Star Trek is everywhere. It is being rerun on numerous television stations, the original crew has been re-booted for the big screen and there are even Star Trek Christmas Ornaments. Continue reading

Equipment: Hallmark Goes to the Far Reaches of the Galaxy this Christmas with the Alien Queen Keepsake Ornament

Some people love Christmas. You can see it when you go into their dscn4457houses and you see the tiny Santa Claus figures, hordes of reindeer and snowmen covering their trees and shelves.

This is why I like the Keepsake Ornaments from Hallmark. Continue reading

Equipment: Jyn Erso (EADU) K-Mart Exclusive Action Figure Review

We have less than a month before one of the most dscn4407anticipated movies of the year (possibly decade), Rogue One: A Star Wars Story arrives. The toys have been out for roughly a month and a half and some are more sought after than others; by that I mean the retailer exclusives. Personally, I hate retailer exclusives because usually the only way to score one is on the secondary market from the jackals that seem to have an inside track. The example that comes to mind are the Walmart exclusives, both last year’s Battlefront Trooper and this year’s Scarif Trooper. The stores and the website have never had them but one search on eBay will bring up tons. I actually saw a listing with the Scarif Trooper in the foreground and cases of figures in the background. Not all K-Mart exclusives are as hard to find such as these two.  Last year K-Mart offered Kylo Ren and Rey exclusives and this year the exclusive is Sergeant Jyn Erso. Jyn Erso is who we are reviewing here. Continue reading
