Death’s Head – Your ears must have been burning, yes?

Well, howzabout that? We were just talking about Death’s Head, everybody’s favorite freelance peacekeeping agent, on the ol’ talk-em-up podcast and here is a review of the new Death’s Head figure from the Avengers Infinite series from someone who has one in-hand.

This Might be Why the Repeater Doesn’t Understand Superheroes

Okay, so, the Repeater found this old ad for superhero action figures (they’re not dolls! Although one could make the case that these, indeed are dolls.)
