Product Review: Star Wars R5-D4 Sixth Scale Figure From SIDESHOW

R5-D4 made his mark in the Star Wars franchise back in 1977.  The R5-D4, who was referred to from Luke as “Red” was purchased by Uncle Owen Lars from the Jawas on Tatooine the same time he purchased C-3PO.  Had R5-D4 not had a bad motivator, the team of R2-D2 and C-3PO may have never come to be as we know it. Recently, I was contacted by SIDESHOW to see if I would be interested in reviewing their R5- Continue Reading

Product Review iKlip A/V from IK Multimedia

Since the growth of The Main Street Mouse, Michele and I have really had to learn how to do many different jobs that neither of us ever learned how to do.  In learning how to do reporting, we also had to learn how to photograph and video events in order to share the news with our readers.

This month, it’s all about FANTASY!”  So what would be in it?  I instantly thought to the 80’s and my D&D y Continue Reading

March 2015 Loot Crate Review – Covert

First off, I know I’m behind on getting my Loot Crate review out and I apologize for all those that look forward to reading my review.  This month’s crate was by far, one I was so excited to get.  The crate’s theme is Covert, all types of things that go along with Secret Agents.  Being a fan of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and knowing there was going to be a special AOS item in the cra Continue Reading
