Q: What’s Better Than Storing Your Action Figures in Big Plastic Tubs?

A: Actually having space to display them! 😀

A couple of days ago, I was lamenting having to move all of the action figures I had, not because we were moving, but because we had decided to install new carpeting. A few of them were on display in a small bookshelf that was mostly filled with books, and the balance were stored in big plastic tubs that I used to call “Staging Area One.” The carpet went in earlier this week, and I’ve been spending the last couple of days setting up the new display.

We got rid of the old bookshelf and added more shelving cubes. In all, there are forty-nine 1-foot square cubes, and I’ve got figures in thirty-one of them, and extra figures and customizing supplies in fourteen more. I’d guess I’ve got at least five times more display space than I used to.

Up To Half Off Action Figures, Busts, and Statues During Gentle Giant Labor Day Sale

I am not a statue or bust collector, but Gentle Giant has lots of Star Wars, Harry Potter, and Indiana Jones items up for sale. For me, the gems of the sale are the Hellboy and Abe action figures from the animated movies. They come with lots of accessories, have great articulation, and at $8.50 each are a real steal.

They’ve also got a couple of Halo Kubrick items. I know some folks who go crazy over these, but they’re normally a little too pricey for me.

Mez-Itz Comic Book Hellboy Variant

If you guys read my review of Mezco’s Comic Book Hellboy, you know what a kickass vinyl figure he is. Mezco has just announced a variant, featuring Hellboy in a black BPRD shirt.  Looks like this one also has a completely closed mouth instead of gritted teeth, and I’m starting to wonder if people will mix and match heads like they did when the first movie Hellboy figures with all the open and closed mouth variants came out.  We just need a variant open Right Hand of Doom to make the experience complete!

The original Comic Book Hellboy was available at San Diego Comic-Con and is backordered at Mezco Direct, but I haven’t found a listing for this guy yet. Will update when I do.

You know what?  I wanted to take some pictures of the Mezco Mez-Itz Comic Book Hellboy that’s exclusive to San Diego Comic-Con and their online store because I thought it would be a simple review.  After all, it’s a vinyl figure, right?  With vinyl, you plunk them down on a shelf, you dust them off once in a while, and that’s about it.

Not so with this guy.  As you’ll see, there’s more to this figure than you might be expecting.  I was certainly surprised.
