Just made my first and only sale on recently .

For those of you not familiar with Teepublic , it is an online store where ANYONE can make money selling t-shirts or other products using their designs. I mentioned my only sale because it is toy related . A Thunder-Punch He-Man tank top . Below is a look at it .
If you are interested in ordering a shirt , here's the link  ---- .

Also I made a Sy-Klone t-shirt .
If you want a Sy-Klone Shirt here's the link  ---   .

As you can see I used the colors to match the look of the character's colors. Since Sy-Klone's armor is blue a blue t-shirt is perfect . And Thunder Punch He-Man has red armor so therefore a red tank top to match his colors . Below is a pic of the first and only aforementioned sale .
Hopefully more sales are on the way . I'm sure no one gets excited over 2 dollars .

E-Bay RARE FINDS -- NBA HEROES - James Harden Figure !!!

This is the first of a new series for Action Figure Imagery I call " E-BAY  RARE  FINDS " . The series is about if I am successful in winning an E-Bay auction on a " RARE " and hard to find action figure , I will post it here on the site . The James Harden figure of the Jazwares NBA Heroes franchise is the rarest and most difficult figure to find in that toy line . He is also the most expensive figure when fully carded mint in box . If you bump into a carded NBA Heroes Harden he may cost you as much as $ 150.00 USD .  I got lucky and won this auction with a " LOOSE " James Harden figure and paid only $ 29.99  . The reason for the good price is because not only was Harden loose , but his regular right arm was missing in the auction . Below is a screen shot I took with my camera of the auction that I won .
As you can see the auction also included a loose LeBron James figure . However James is NOT rare but Harden is , hence the title of this post . Shots of both figures are posted in this article however let's get to James Harden first since he is the primary focus, then on to the LeBron figure .
 Dreams do INDEED come true. I have been wanting this James Harden figure in my collection for quite some time and now I finally have it . Also the proof of me wanting this figure from a post from last year , this James Harden figure was on my wish list . Click the following link to see it --- .
 I love this figure however I do not like the fact that the seller did NOT have Harden's regular right arm . Because I also love NBA Basketball and I wish I had Harden's regular right arm rather than the super hero arm . Maybe one day some more James Harden figures will pop up on E-Bay again sometime soon and I can purchase another one just to get that right arm . However it's going to be tough because he is a rare figure .
 As you can see Harden stands right at the six inch height mark .
 I love how the jerseys on these NBA Heroes figures look exactly like actual NBA Jerseys .
 A close up of Harden's armor . Even though I purchased this figure for the basketball side of things and not for the super hero stuff, the armor and viking helmet look really cool . I love the blend of reds and greys in the armor .

 Back of viking helmet and armor .
Full body shot . 
Comparison shot of the figure and the real life James Harden . The figure in my opinion is a good likeness to the real Harden with the exception of the shape of the face . It looks as if the action figure's face should have been a little more rounded to match the complete look of Harden 100% . Now let's look at the figure that is not rare, the LeBron figure .
The reason why his skin is silver instead of normal is because it's like paying a tribute to the popular X-Men character known as Colossus . Thus  hence the name of the toy line NBA " HEROES " .

I think this is a neat figure too, however I want the regular version of LeBron that is packaged in a 3-pack alongside Derrick Rose and Stephen Curry more than I do this one .
As you can see the LeBron figure is a little over six inches tall and has very big monster like hands . He can actually palm that ball with one hand .

MARVEL LEGENDS - Ebony Maw Review !!!

Based on the hit Marvel movies of Avengers Infinity Wars and End Game comes one of Thanos' members of his Black Order , Ebony Maw . I purchased this figure of Ebony Maw at a local Walmart for around the $ 19.99 price range .

If you can not clearly see the bio it says " The dangerous assassin Ebony Maw puts his powers of persuasion into sinister use in service of the evil Thanos . "
As you can see Maw comes with the left leg of the Thanos build-a-figure, based on his Avengers End Game attire .

Not only am I glad to see another member of Thanos ' Black Order in action figure form but I also like this figure a lot  and is very pleased with it . The figure is fun to pose and I like his long arms . Plus he's a cool looking character with a cool looking uniform . I love the mixture of colors with the different shades of grey along with the gold trimmings .
As you can see Ebony Maw is a tall figure, standing right around seven inches in height.
I do indeed find it interesting that the character has no nose or nostrils. This statement however is more about the actual character himself and not about the toy . It makes you wonder " how does he breathe " . ? Does he have hidden gills somewhere on his body, like a fish ?
Maw has a unique hair style. As you can see no hair on the top or sides but a lot of hair on the back of his head.

Ebony Maw has one of the longest arms of any Marvel character or figure . The above pic showing a wingspan of about eight inches . So if he was a real being I assume his wingspan would be about eight feet . He has basketball player like arms . Big hands too to go along with his long arms .
                                                        FINAL  THOUGHTS  

(1) ARTICULATION  LIMITS - Upward and downward head movement is somewhat hindered with a lack of slits in both the front and back of his neck . Other than that excellent all around articulation.

(2) STANDING  ABILITY - Maw stands great once you position his stance properly . However he can fall over because of his thin ankles .

(3) WHAT  I  LIKE  BEST  ABOUT  THIS  FIGURE ? - The luxury of having another member of Thanos Black Order in Marvel Legend form . His long basketball player like arms are fun to bend  and display .

(4) WHAT  I  LIKE  LEAST  ABOUT  THIS  FIGURE ? - No dislikes.

(5) WHAT  COULD  HAVE  BEEN  DONE  TO  IMPROVE  THIS  FIGURE ? - No improvements needed .

(6) GRADING  SCALE - On a scale of 1 to 10 a Perfect 10 . Could not find any flaws that bothered me.

(7) FINAL  ANALYSIS - Hasbro is doing a better job on the movie based figures in my opinion than they are on the comic based versions. Maw is a perfect example .
