2014’s Top 10 Toy/Collectible Reviews
All of us here at Needless Essentials Online have reviewed a lot of toys, art books, trinkets and other collectibles this past year so here’s a top 10 list of items that have been reviewed this past year. The links to the main reviews are posted for each entry in case you missed them the first time or just to take a walk down memory lane. It should be noted these are in no particular order.
Marvel Select Falcon
This is the second Marvel Select figure I’ve bought and I really liked the detailing on Falcon.
G.I. Joe Collectors Club Convention 2014 Eco Striker
I am a sucker for the AWE Striker mold and getting an updated ECO Striker using all the new parts from the Retaliation mold was a must buy for me.
DC Comics Multiverse Superman
This figure may not have the absolute best in articulation, but I love the sculpt.
Aliens Minimates Dump Case Review
Awesome tiny Aliens mixed with fun dio pics, what more needs to be said?
Reaction Figures Alien Toyline
It took 35 years, but we finally got the cancelled, Kenner sculpted Alien action figures that were supposed to come out in 1979. This is toy history being sold at retail stores in 2014.
Transformers Generations Autobot Cosmos with Payload Review
I really liked the figure, but also liked seeing him in space backgrounds
The TMNT Minimates are wonderfully sculpted and full of fun, plus awesome dio scenes with a number of playsets from other toy lines
Reaction Figures Alien with Metallic Flesh Review
The great Kenner sculpted Alien from the 1979 series, now with a 1979 Giant Alien paint job! This one even surpasses the first version.
Minimates Marvel Deadly Foes of Spider-Man
This Luke’s Toy Store Exclusive was already a great set full of wonderful Minimates, but then Luke’s tossed in a few awesome bonus bits and made it a must buy (multiples of) Minimate set in 2014
Transformers Legacy Art Book Review
This is by far my favorite item this year. As a lover of both toys and artwork, having a book filled to the brim with high quality packaging artwork from both US & Japanese Transformers along with the early toylines that made the Transformers line up was exactly what I have been wanting since rediscovering Transformers in the late 90’s.
Reused Molds: Batman The Dark Knight Collection
While not really a review, it is showcasing a toyline and shows how often/creatively toy companies reuse the molds that make our toys.
And that’s the end of our list, I hope you enjoyed these reviews and maybe a few of your favorites made the list. You can see all of our Toy/Collectible reviews on their own page HERE
