It’s my own little piece of the internet. A place I can call my own. And a place where you are more than welcome to visit any time! Come on in, have a drink, and watch a review!
My goal with this site was to put together a one-stop shop to find my latest video reviews and share my love and passion for collecting toys with the world! I’ve already posted a lot of my back catalog, so you should be able to easily find any of my Masters of the Universe Classics reviews, episodes of From Pixels to Plastic, reviews on ThunderCats, Voltron, Kotobukiya, and much more!
Plus, all of my latest reviews and videos will be posted here going forward! I’ve done my best to make it easy to locate exactly what you’re looking for. So check the categories or “Featured Videos” sections to the right, or use the handy “Search” function! And if you’d like to see a full listing of every review I have available on this site, check out the Toy Review Index up top!
It’s also very easy to share anything on this site via Twitter, Facebook, Google+, etc! I highly encourage you to do so! Help spread the word!
Aside from my toy reviews, I’ll also be using this space to post my thoughts on some of the latest news and info coming from the world of toys and collecting!
Discussion is encouraged, so please post your comments! I’ll always be here to chat back!
I think that pretty much sums it all up! So once again I say WELCOME! And thanks for joining me on this new venture! I’m very excited to share my work and my thoughts with each of you!

My good friend James Eatock, creator of Cereal Geek Magazine, is asking for your help in determining the cover of the 2nd printing of his amazing Unofficial Cartoon Guide to He-Man and the Masters of the Universe!
It’s time for the very first brand new character created for the Masters of the Universe Classics toy line! Created by The Four Horsemen, Draego-Man is part of the 2012 30th Anniversary sub-line! Join Pixel Dan for an in-depth review of this massive figure!
Kotobukiya is well known for their highly detailed ArtFX statues. What they aren’t really known for are 1/6 scale collectible figures. That may very well be changing with the release of the incredibly detailed ArtFX 1/6 Scale Elvis Presley based on his appearance at the infamous 1968 Comeback Special!
Fans of the “The King” will most definitely love the amazing love and care Kotobukiya injected into this piece. From the accurate outfit to the amazing accessories, this incredible lifelike likeness of Elvis is quite a breathtaking piece.
Want to see him in more detail? The look no further than this video review!
News has broken this past week through various Ask Matty answers across the net that Mattel has cancelled both the 4″ and 6″ Young Justice toy lines. While this is sad news for many knowing that they will now be unable to complete the main team in 6″ form, it’s not much of a surprise. The 6″ scale figures are quite expensive, and seem to be clogging store shelves as a result. The 4″ scale figures also don’t seem to be moving very well.
You may have heard that the time is nearing for the end of the Young Justice toy line. While we’re as bummed as you are, we want to be sure you know this doesn’t in any way mean the end of DC toys from Mattel. In fact, it’s quite the opposite!
Next month kicks off not one, but two new lines: our DC Universe Club Infinite Earths subscription service dedicated to true collector characters you won’t find at retail. The first shipment goes out in May and features an all-new 6” Golden Age The Flash figure. If you missed out on this awesome subscription, a limited quantity will also be available at MattyCollector.com on May 15th at 9am PT. Then, in late May, head to your local retailer and you’ll find The Dark Knight Rises, a kid-targeted Batman™ line. And for 2013, we’re planning an innovative collector-aimed line coming to retail stores.
Keep your eye on this spot and we’ll have more details as they’re available. Our partnership with DC is stronger than ever and we couldn’t be more excited for all the amazing new collector and kid toys to come!
What exactly does this mean? I guess time will tell. Mattel is obviously trying for a little bit of damage control by telling us about all of their other upcoming lines. But with DC All-Stars already getting canned before it’s release, and DCUC moving to MattyCollector.com (and just barely, for that matter), one has to wonder if this is the beginning of the end for Mattel’s 6″ scale DCUC-style figures.
