Presenting the Voyager Class Dinobot Slog - Sludge - from the Transformers Age of Extinction toyline - AOE.
Slog is based upon the Dinobot Sludge. Michael Bay in his infinite wisdom decided that, as with Slug / Slag,  that it would be better to call Sludge, Slog.
To the uninitiated, Slog is actually a real character in the Transformers timeline. Slog is a Deception Pretender - a robot that hides within the hide of some hideous looking beast and one of the combiners who formed Monstructor. The Decepticon Slog also formed the artistic movement called Slogism which depicted the war between the Decepticons and the Autobots in mangled horrific forms.
Michael Bay decided to remake him as a Dinobot. To his credit, Bay also remade him from being a Brontosaurus - a creature that actually never existed and was created out of the erroneous combination of two distinct dinosaurs - to being an Apatosaurus. It’s interesting how much our knowledge of dinosaurs has grown since we first saw the Dinobots in 1984.

Presenting a Kara Zor-El - Supergirl action figure from the DC New 52 toyline.
Too bad DC decided to create her New 52 Red and blues instead of placing Supergirl in her more recent Red Lantern costume.
Yes to the uninitiated, having been born to a life of strife, loss and death, the New 52 Supergirl is no longer that teenager trying to find her place in the world, and has instead released her anger and joined the dark side as a member of Guy Gardner’s Red Lantern Corp - where cursing your enemy usually results in his/her being barbecued.
Frankly we think that the Red Lantern costume is an improvement.

Presenting the Gatling Gun for Transformers Prime Optimus Prime AKA the Aristocratic Creature Huntsman.
We should note that he’s also dragging Dr Wu’s Starsaber / Skybreaker.
The Aristocratic Creature Huntsman is from Zenith Forge  the same people who made the Cretaceous Advancement upgrade for the FOC Grimlock (Which we recently gifted to our Nephew - hope he’s still whole). The Gatling gun’s ID number is ZF-002.
We should probably also take the time to point out that this is technically not a gatling gun as it is not crank activated. It’s energy powered so it’s technically a mini-gun, or more accurately a weapon’s pod.
But calling it a Gatling gun sounds cooler.

Presenting Elektra from the 5th Series of the Marvel Universe toy line.
To the uninitiated, Elektra Natchios is not the Mexican appetizer Foggy Nelson makes her out to be. She is one of Frank Miller’s greatest and most beloved creations: a kunoichi (Female assassin), long time flame of the Daredevil  - the Man-Without-Fear (The title where Frank Miller debuted); Current member of the Thunderbolts, and; now the love interest of the Punisher (Another title that  Frank Miller is famous for writing for).
Elektra has had quite a colorful history in the Marvel Universe (And we don’t just mean red). She’s one of Marvel’s more famous testaments to the Marvel Universe statement “Nobody stays dead forever” - what with having been killed by the assassin Bullseye and brought back from the dead by the Hand - hell she even brought Daredevil back from the dead after his death in the Shadowlands series. She is remembered by most as the 1st hero kidnapped for the Skrull invasion. Rumor has it that she was experimented on during her captivity.
She’s been both a hero and a villain. Daredevil’s lover and the greatest thorn at his side.
One of those rightfully called an anti-hero.

Presenting the battling beauty Transformers Generations Windblade.
Admittedly we once again did not understand the hype behind why people were dying for her - other than that it’s a female Autobot which is always a plus.
Turns out she has quite a history - and we’re not referring to the one created by IDW for her.
The Autobot Windblade is apparently the first officially “fan-created” Transformer.

Presenting Starfire Action Figure from the DC New 52 Red Hood and the Outlaws Series.
There are many sacred thing that DC has learned not to mess with over the years: Power Girl’s Boob Window; Wonder Woman’s pants; Star Sapphire’s barely there uniform and of course, the sexually carefree usually naked form of Starfire. In the first issue of the New 52’s Red Hood and the Outlaws, she asks Arsenal quite frankly “Do you want to have sex with me?" When Arsenal initially rejects the offer because he thinks she is Jason Todd’s girl she replies "Absurd.  I am free to do what I want when I want…" Naturally Arsenal is more than happy to oblige. he asks her "So, is there anything I need to know about making love to a Tamarranean?" and she replies "Just that love has nothing to do with it.”

Presenting the Autobot Skids from the Transformers Generations toyline.
We chanced upon Skids at retail and frankly had no interest in buying him. He’s Skids after all. In the greater scheme of things, he’s nobody - no offense to Skids lovers out there - but he is Decepticon cannon fodder (Check out his yellow eyes below. He’ll never be a Prime).
But everyone in the community seemed to want him so we had to find out why.
So we picked him up.

Presenting the HALO 4 UNSC Collector’s Edition Warthog.
Okay! This is the M12 Light Reconnaissance Vehicle, Warthog (or simply Hog), as it appears in HALO: 4. Now we should point out that when this blog started a lifetime ago in 2010, we featured the HALO Reach Warthog. Till today, that Warthog remains one of our most valuable Dungeon displays.
But this puts it to shame.
