Tom wrote in and sent in some pictures of a newly discovered stolen action figure at a Toys “R” Us in upstate NY. Someone had removed the action figure with shared G.I. Joe parts on one of the packages, and stole just the head on another. Both of these sets were taken to [...]
ToyHypeUSA wants to take a moment and remember the lives lost on September 11th, 2001. Our deepest sympathies go out to the victims, their families and friends. Will never forget their sacrifices.
The results of the 2014 DC subscription is in at 63% out of the 100% needed to move forward for 2014. One can only speculate that the blame for the failure of the line could go around from Mattel, Digital River, the economy, and the fans for not jumping on board.
This year [...]
Let’s be honest here. This one is going to be a tough one for Mattel to pull off. The Ghostbusters Classics 6″ Scale Ecto-1 vehicle, Peter and Ray 6″ figures are priced at $215 for the Ecto-1, and $25 each for the figures. This year marks the 30th Anniversary of the Ghostbusters and this is Mattel’s [...]
Mattel had announced yesterday (July 30th) that the current thermometer reading is at 25% of what they need to reach the first tier. This is a very small percentage of DC fans out there that collect the adult-aimed collector lines. This year we learned that Mattel will not continue the adult aimed line at [...]

Hasbro SDCC 2013 exclusives were not listed until today, Wednesday July 24th at 3:30 pm EST. Many people who were interested [...]
We are going to spotlight a vintage toy line, action figure, or vehicle every now and then. Today, we are starting with Cops N’ Crooks. A toy line introduced by Hasbro in 1988 and 1989 that was ahead of it’s time with ball jointed arms, hips, and was 6″ in height. Back in the [...]
We wanted to wish our readers a safe and happy 4th of July.
Mattycollector has put up the 2014 Subscriptions for DCU Club Infinite Earths and Masters Of The Universe Classics. In 2014, they have offered two shipping options – monthly or quarterly. Monthly shipping allows you to get your figures each month, and quarterly every three months to save on shipping fees.
Some fans have raised concerns [...]
On Saturday June 15th, we had picked up some incredible deals on the dealer room floor at Eternal Co as we have stated in a previous post.
Here is our haul:
G.I. Joe 1988 Rolling Thunder COMPLETE with all parts and figure (did not come with the box or instructions). This was certainly a deal [...]
Our reader Jeff sent in his submission for our 1 year anniversary contest.
Here’s the entry form Yuzzums’ Customs. Fathers Day family effort. We shot this under our Lacey Japanese maple tree in out front yard. Both the kids placed the figures. That D*** AT-ST required my skill. Those things are a pain to pose! We came [...]
Update: Attendance numbers adjusted.

Eternal Con had a lot to offer from an [...]

Update June 8th: We have decided to extend the deadline to Saturday July 6th at midnight EST. We have also decided upon reader request to change some of the rules to the contest. Since a full on battle diorama is too time consuming for some collectors (as you, the reader have told us), [...]

Mattycollector has made some mistakes that cost many Club Eternia Subscribers a fair chance at getting the Masters Of The Universe Classics Spirit Of Hordak figure.
Our friends at Jeditemplearchives received a email from a reader who reported what his friend witnessed at a Wal-Mart in Florida. This story will make you frustrated and outraged on what this mother did!
