Lanard might not be the first toy company you think of when it comes to collectible toys, but their new King Kong action figures might change your mind. My favorite part of this video is when they say the toys are made for kids and collectors alike -- these toys are fun and durable, while also looking great on the shelf. So many of the action figures sold today break the second … [Read more...] about The Making of Lanard’s King Kong toys

Needless to say, I spoil everything so be warned. Kong: Skull Island Yes! They didn't screw it up! This was such a great big monster movie, and I could not have asked for anything more. The movie was smartly set up as … [Read more...] about What have I seen!?!
