Mattel's WWE Triple H

Another Elite figure from Mattel, this time of Triple H. He wears a removable real clothing t-shirt and his sledgehammer. This is a Toy R US exclusive figure and it looks great. Its Triple H when he faced Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 29.

Great details and articulation. Those Elite figures are amazing!

Mattel's WWE Shawn Michaels

Now it was time to get more WWE wrestlers from Mattel. Toys R US had a sale so it was the perfect timing.

Shawn Michaels might be retired now but he is one of the all time great. It was only logical to get him as an action figure. this is the Best of WrestleMania 30 Elite figure.

The Elite collection figures have more point of articulations and usually come with something special. In the case of Shawn Michaels, its removable ring attire from his match against Stone Cold Steve Austin at WrestleMania 14.

Its a great looking figure, probably my favourite so far. The amazing details, sculpt and paint makes it a must own for fans.

Flea Market Hunting : Parallax

While the live action film wasn't great, Isaac and I still had fun. Isaac really wanted the action figure of Parallax… we finally found it at the flea market for real cheap.

Parallax is about 10 inch tall. It has tentacles that moves when he rolls across a flat surface. He also features a secret claw attack that can extend, grab his prey and launch it back out. Its a cool figure and one more bad guy for our DC Universe.

Lego The Simpsons Apu

Apu Nahaspapeemapetilon
Apu, the proprietor of the local Kwik-E-Mart store, seems to work every hour of every day (much to the dismay of his wife Manjula, who wouldn’t mind a little help with their octuplets). Occasionally, Apu likes to sneak up to his secret Kwik-E-Mart roof-garden for spiritual replenishment – and to spy on his competitors at the nearby Gulp ‘N’ Blow.

Mattel's WWE Sheamus

The next day we went out to look for more Mattel WWE figures, the only one we found was Sheamus.

Its a cool figure but sadly he is not in scale with the others, he's a little too tall.

Sunday, August 10, 2014

Mattel's WWE Randy Orton

Next was WWE Series #37 - #16 Randy Orton from WrestleMania 25. A cool figure but of all the one we just got, this is the one from which the face doesn't look as "real" as the actual wrestler.

Saturday, August 9, 2014

Mattel's WWE Undertaker

Next we got the Deadman, The Undertaker. This is the WrestleMania 30 version where he faced Brock Lesnar and actually lost for the first time, ending the Taker's WM streak.

Its a cool action figure and Isaac loves it.

Friday, August 8, 2014

Mattel's WWE

Isaac recently got into wrestling… it was only a matter of time before we start collecting the normal Mattel WWE action figures.

But first we had to get a wrestling ring and lucky for us I found one on sale. This is the WWE Super Strikers Turnbuckle Takedown Ring.

Its a cool ring but I wish the turnbuckles were made of soft plastic instead. One of them is spring-loaded from which you can throw a wrestler. The TitanTron collapses, there is a WWE championship belt.

Monday, August 4, 2014


Ever since he learned how to read, Isaac has been hungry to read more and more. He recently got into this very cool and instructive book series about animals, Savais-tu? or Do you know?

Superbly drawn in cartoonish way, hilarious and interesting, this is a great series of books from which even I learned a lot.
