Dr. Strange has had pretty good action figures in both Marvel Legends and Marvel Universe, but haven’t really had any of his signature villains available to battle. And while this San Diego exclusive HeroClix Shuma Gorath may work for MU and might be a bit of a stretch for ML, I’m still pretty psyched to see it from WizKids – it’s about time! One of the coolest features is his articulated eye, which is movable via an eye knob at the back of his head(?)
Shuma Gorath will cost $50 at SDCC, and WizKids will also have a trio of DC heroes, Pandora, the Question, and Phantom Stranger, for $24.99.

After posting the Sideshow contest I started clicking around for more Pacific Rim info – somehow I missed the announcement last week for NECA’s giveaway. They’re now in week two of giveaways for four NECA Pacific Rim prize packs. The action figures look great, but I’m most thrilled about the HeroClix. I like the idea of scale reversal – to the Heroclix kaiju I’m monster-sized!
Four Weeks of Pacific Rim Contests Start Today!

It was a slow day for AFP yesterday, as I was on the road taking my wife and her mom to Las Vegas as a little Mother’s Day celebration. As we were sitting at the gate waiting to board the plane, I thought about action figures of mothers. And came up with one. Pamela Voorhees, from Friday the 13th, was the only one I could recall. And actually, there were at least two made of her. In 2005, NECA came out with deluxe set for the movie’s 25th anniversary, with Jason and his dear old mom (pictured above, courtesy of BigBadToyStore). Sideshow made a 1/6 scale version – see Michael Crawford’s review of Pamela Voorhees.
So, what other mothers deserve action figures? Before getting called to board the plane, I came up with three.
