reactionlogoOver this Holiday season and the various editorial meetings we had, was the question, “What was our favorite toy or toy line for 2014?”  We had some hot feuded geeky discussions, but on everybody’s list was the Super7 x Funko ReAction action figures.

reactionfigures00The old Retrender staffers like Stephen and Johnny who actually grew up in the 1980s (cough … they old) said it brought them memories of being a kid in the 1980s.  As for me, I just remember watching these ReAction figures as DVDs movies at home with my parents.  And that lead to a discussion of “What If?” figure line-ups for 2015.  So, Super 7 and Funko, we are calling you out, please take a look at our ReAction action figure wish list!

tmntI’m not the biggest fan of TMNT (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), but I’ve been fan of the toys and been collecting the various Playmates Toys TMNT figures.  Not to confuse non-fans, but there are 3 product lines of the Turtles in a Half Shell, 1) the classic line of figures, 2) the Nickelodeon cartoon figures, and 3) the movie version figures.  If you’re not satisfy with the Playmates toys, then I suggest the pricey Kaiyodo Revoltech figures which offers cool packaging if you’re into that stuff, more articulation and accessories for pose-ability.

Matty Collector DC Comics Total Heroes

batmanbeyontthTotal Heroes is another line-up of DC Universe 6″ action figures and you can find these figures at big box stores like Target and Wal-Mart.  I bought a few of these Total Heroes like Batman and The Flash, since I liked how they look and it was ten bucks.  Now these already sold out at Matty Collector, these are Total Heroes Ultra editions, meaning they come with more accessories like various interchangeable faces, hands and weapons.  The Batman Beyond figure looks really cool and you can probably find them online somewhere at the $25-35 price range.
