He comes with a voice chip, I haven’t used it yet since he’s still in the box, but it obviously has some of his notable quotes:

The Palpatine figure looks cool too, would love to hear his quotes.

As you know Boba Fett is one of my fave Star Wars characters. This is a posable Disney action figure. He can ‘armour up’ with extra pieces of equipment:

Happy Monday! Wooo! So, since there’s still a lot of hype around Star Wars with the Force Awakens being released, I thought I’d share some more old school action figures (still in the boxes):

Ben Kenobi Action Figure

Old Ben Kenobi is a 1995 release.

Emperor Palpatine Action Figure

Emperor Palpatine is a 1996 release.

I wish I had collected all the figures and vehicles in these sets, they look really awesome, and of course you don’t beat old style and quality, but I was only 4 or 5 years old back then, so my collection habits were heavily reliant on mom and dad.

Did everyone enjoy The Force Awakens? I thought it was ok, but I wasn’t totally satisfied.

Who of you Nerd Knights went to see the new Fast and Furious movie? None of my friends are really into fast cars and action ‘beat em up’ movies; so i haven’t seen it yet – i may have to go alone:

Anyhow i love the Fast and Furious franchise; so this merchandise Monday is dedicated to the muscle cars that our favorite characters have driven in the series:

Hot Wheels is co-branding with a lot of popular franchises these days (Disney – Star Wars; and Batman) to name a few. I haven’t bought all the cars in the Fast and Furious Hot Wheels collection; since i do have my favorites. I like Dom’s car (Dodge), and i love the styling and finishes of Brian’s cars. However; my true love will always be the Ford Mustang:

In the Fast and Furious franchise; the character Sean Boswell drove a 1967 Ford Mustang fastback in Tokyo Drift. I love this car! A Mustang GT 550R is featured to an anonymous driver in Fast and Furious 4.

If you have seen Fast and Furious 7 then please give me your opinion of the film. I understand that it’s the highest opening film this year so far, but that may be because of the hype around it being Paul Walker’s last appearance in the franchise. Who wants to go on a date with me to see this movie 🙂 ?

He was teasing me the other evening asking me why i haven’t bought a life size replica of my favorite character. I told him that Sauron is 2.78m tall and would naturally be busting through the ceiling:

This life size Yoda replica is a limited edition run; so best start googling for one ASAP if you have intentions to buy him:
