This month has been manic with loads of new projects on the go and tones of new content, videos, guides and checklists coming throughout 2017 so reserve your copy to make sure you don’t miss out! This month we have three guides and checklist for you. The first is a look at the figures from the popular Jimmy Carrey movie, The Mask, which despite the movies successful saw very poor sales but with rumors of a remake maybe that’s about to change! The second guide takes a look at the Trendmasters Lost in Space action figures, which a gain bombed at retail despite both its movie and TV success. The third guide takes a look at one of the most successful movie franchises ever, and no its not Star Wars but James Bond! D Did you know that the first James Bond figures were released by AC Gilbert way back in 1964? Despite the franchises huge success and many movies there has been little in the way of action figures but in the coming months we will be taking a look at what there is available out there and there best buys and most valuable items. This month we look at probably two of the most memorable lines, i.e. AC Gilbert’s and Mego’s 007 action figures. Also in this month’s issue is the continued WAM Action Figures cartoon strip, Agents of Evil and our regular look at the top eBay Auctions and Review section. This month’s review section has a total of thirteen reviews including: Mezco’s One in 12 Collective Punisher; Hasbro’s Marvel Legends; Sideshow Collectibles Ash from Evil Dead 2; Star Ace Toy’s Dracula; DST’s 1966 Batman and Hot Toys Rogue One Stormtrooper to name a few.
