Long time friend of MUReview…and well, of mine, Joe Moscone is taking his toy collection to the streets for charity and he wants you to come with him! In a series of auctions on eBay, Joe and Friends will be auctioning off a ton of great SDCC exclusive history and more to raise money for Receptions For Research: The Greg Olsen Foundation. The Greg Olsen Foundation is an incredible organization devoted to providing hospitals, doctors and scholars across the nation the resources necessary to treat and enrich the lives of those affected by various forms of cancer and cardiovascular diseases.
Hasbro SDCC Exclusive 2014: Rom The Spaceknight
One of the more unexpected SDCC Exclusives, Hasbro let loose the bomb on the Internet just a short while before SDCC that they would be bringing along a Mighty Muggs Rom the Spaceknight! Simply the news delighted long time fans of the oft swept under rug character. There has been a clamor for Rom in any scale. To get him as a Mugg I’m sure made a lot of folks happy.
SDCC 2014: Hasbro Thanos Imperative Box Set
I’m not going to beat around the bush here, but I will caveat. I haven’t reviewed my weight in 6 inch figures as I have definitely done in 3.75 scale, so I admit I’m less an expert in this category. However. In my honest opinion the SDCC 2014 Thanos Imperative Box Set from Hasbro has put the 6 inch action figure world on notice. Marvel and Hasbro have caught a keg worth of lightining and they are loosing it on the world between sets like this and the success of Guardians of the Galaxy. Every single figure in this set is amazing. Amazing. The packaging, also amazing.
SDCC 2014: Hasbro Infinity Gauntlet Box Set
I cannot believe that this moment has finally come. Since first hearing about the set, salivating…really wasn’t the right word for what it came to. Today though, on my door a nice giant sized box arrived containing what can only be referred to…as the precious. The Infinity Gauntlet Box set, exclusively sold at SDCC 2014’s Hasbro booth, and now, for a very short time (while supplies last) available on Hasbrotoyshop.com. The set features a giant, man sized Infinity Gauntlet, sure to fit nearly any hand that holds it, even Thanos’s hand. Also included in the set….Thanos himself, Nebula, Star Fox and Mistress Death, 3 of the four, available for the first time ever in 3.75 inch plastic!!

I have been vexed all Comic Con long this year, by hard to find DST info and solid images. Hell, a few days ago I posted what I thought was a Cable coming out in 2015! It’s coming out in 2014 and thank goodness for that! I can’t wait to pre-order.
