Even if you’re not currently collecting these figures, you’ll want to subscribe to the DorkLair, as Bill brings you tips and strategies to make you a smarter, more effective collector that gets the best value from each acquisition.
Bill and guests sit down each week with figure in hand with the mission to appreciate the simple style and heroic action of these creations, one figure per episode. The DorkLair takes a look at all the hits and misses in each line, including honest criticism and which figures to skip completely. Often there is opportunity for comparison between other lines in similar scale including Hasbro’s The Black Series, Medicom’s MAFEX lines, Marvel Legends and more.
