Unboxed: Fisher-Price Thomas & Friends Minis Blind Bags



When NerdNewsToday's Matthew approached me about teaming up for these toy review videos, I didn't know what to expect. Of all the different toys I thought we might review, you know who I didn't think of? Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends. But here we are.

First seen at last year's Toy Fair, these Fisher-Price minis are not what you'd expect. How do you take an established show and create a bunch of minis that kids will keep begging their parents to get more of? Simple. You create a ton of variants. And  that's what they did.

What's also great about the minis is you can get franchise versions as sets. They have DC Comics and my favorite, the Power Rangers. But we're here to discuss blind bag minis, so here we go.

It's Mezco's One:12 Day!


That's right, it is January 12th aka One:12!  Mezco Toyz is using this opportunity on their blog to showcase their additions to the line in 2017, which have been impressive. 

They added quite a few different characters in the past year, including hits like The Flash, Harley Quinn, Deathstroke. and Deadpool.  But none of those are as cool as my favorite 2017 addition to the One:12 Collective....

Toy Review: McFarlane Toys "Evil Rick and Morty" Construction Set



Today, Matthew at NerdNewsToday and I are going to attempt to put together the Evil Rick and Morty construction set from McFarlane Toys. One of the things I like about this set is Evil Rick and Morty. It's as simple as that. I usually enjoy evil dopplegangers, and Rick and Morty delivered. As for how easy or difficult it is to build the set, watch on.

Toy Review: McFarlane Toys - Rick and Morty "You Can Run But You Can't Hide" Construction Set



Of all the sets, Matthew at NerdNewsToday and I have been and will review of McFarlane Toys Rick and Morty construction set, this is the one I wanted to do the most. Nightmare of Elm Street is my jam. Freddy Kruger is my horror movie bae. Yes, I know how horrible he is, but no character has messed me up quite like Freddy, and I appreciate him for it. So, when Rick and Morty created their Freddy knockoff, Scary Terry, I was happy. When McFarlane Toys came out with the "You Can Run but You Can't Hide" Scary Terry construction set, thrilled and vowed to get my hands on it. And manhandle it I did.
