Create a WWE Superstar -Special Ops set - Roman Reigns Review !!!

This is one of my favorite WWE Create a Superstar sets. I bought this at a local Walmart for around 22 dollars and some change. For those of you whom may not know, Mattel has two types of these Create a Superstar sets. One type of sets has less accessories and costs less in price, whereas the other type of sets has extra accessories with  higher prices . This is my first time purchasing one of the higher priced ones and I'm glad I did.

Next time I'll make sure there is no clutter behind the package. I did not know my remote control to one of my dvd players was behind the box. Anyway back on topic , I mainly purchased this set because I like the accessories that come with this set .

As you can see there are lots of cool accessories , a taser stick , cybernetic arms , handcuffs , police shield , military helmet and a gas mask head . The handcuffs are perfect to use on other figures with slim wrists , such as the Amazing Spider-Man in the pics below .

The handcuffs are made out of a very soft rubbery plastic, so be careful not to stretch them too far or you might tear them . If you have a Big Boss Man figure from the elite series, the shield may look good with him to go along with his police uniform . See the pic below.
The shield is kind of loose in Boss Man's hand so it would be wise to raise his arm a little to keep him from dropping it . I guess stickers could be considered accessories too, and Reigns comes with quite a few tattoo stickers .
The wolf logo kind of reminds me of the logo used for the NBA Basketball Team Minnesota Timberwolves . Besides the tattoo sheet you also get the black and white instruction sheets.

Now for some more looks at the actual figure , Roman Reigns .

As you can see when fully put together this figure is almost 7 inches tall . When adding the military helmet onto the gas mask head, it kind of reminds me of Darth Vader , and the taser stick is almost reminiscent of a light saber . The only negative thing I have to say about this whole set is that the military helmet may be a little bit too small for Roman's head, or is it vice versa? Is his head too big for the helmet ? You can see what I mean in the pic above. Other than that this is a fun toy set with lots of cool accessories, and the actual action figure is cool as well . I definitely recommend that you buy this if you happen to bump into it .

Flea Market & Thrift Store Finds Part 5 - Star Wars Grab Bag of Kenner figures. STAR WARS MANIA CONTINUES !!!!

As Star Wars mania continues this week with the new movie, I was lucky enough to bump into a pack of old Star Wars figures together in a bag at a local thrift store for under 5 dollars . Even though all of the figures are loose and incomplete , it is still a great find for such a great price. Here's what I purchased . As noted in the title of this post , all of these figures are made by Kenner , not Hasbro .
I forgot the names of these characters above but are familiar with them .
Luke and Leia are the only ones I recognize above .
I know Luke and Yoda . Do not know the bearded guy .
Two different Chewbaccas ??? Or is it two different figures of the same character ?
Luke and a couple of Ewoks . I hope you enjoyed these pics. That's it for now. Sorry for not knowing the names of all of the characters , I like Star Wars and the whole Star Wars franchise a lot , just like mostly everyone else. Although I do love Star Wars , I'm not super crazy about it though , thus explaining me not knowing everyone's name .

A look at the Saturday Night Live Sketch of a Star Wars - The Force Awakens commecial .

Saturday Night Live has done another sketch involving toys and action figures . Just like they did with He-Man , Lion-O and She-Ra , this sketch just involves the toys and not actors pretending to be toys. I assume by doing this, SNL is also in an indirect way promoting the Force Awakens movie. In case you missed the sketch , here is a link to it courtesy of Youtube -  .
