Review: Takara-Tomy Beast Saga Super Win Deck Impact Set Action Figure Set

I waited forever to order the Super Win Deck Impact Set in hopes of getting it cheaper, which did not work out too well for me - prices on Amazon got real cheap after I sprang for it off eBay, so ultimately if you can get it under $20 delivered you basically should. The idea here is that these are "Burst" versions - just like the blind-box clears - but the trading card says, in English, "Black Ver." on each one. So you've got Killer Shark Burst, Aldyle Burst, and Olrich Burst cast in clear, smokey plastic armor with blue, green, and purple plastic respectively.

Review: Hasbro Battle Beasts Pixilated Pointer

Hasbro Battle Beasts Pixilated Pointer Action FigureMost of what interests me in toys are really old things - like Battle Beasts - or brand-new figures. I went nuts and got as many of these guys as I could a few years ago, including Pixilated Pointer. I'm not a big dog person as such, but this is a fine figure - the 2-inch pooch has jointed arms and a weapon, plus a rubsign sticker. It's awesome. You should get one, or whatever figure best represents your spirit animal.
