INTRO
This is our first review of a HeroCross Hybrid Metal Figuration.. uh.. figure. (Try saying that five times real fast)

The good folks at HeroCross were kind enough to reach out to us and ask if we’d be interested in reviewing some of their figures.  I always really enjoyed checking out their displays at SDCC in past years but hadn’t had any personal experience with them so, I jumped at the opportunity.

They gave us a a pretty wide range of figures to choose from… Predator/Alien.. Star Wars.. Batman… etc.. etc… After a little back and forth, I mentioned how the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles really caught my eye. So they sent me Michelangelo.

Now, I’m not complaining, but  I admit, when I was told we’d be getting the turtles to review, I was thinking they’d send all FOUR of them.. since you know, they’re a team of turtles and it’s hard to have turtles plural, with only one turtle… but that’s probably just me being greedy for more cool stuff to play with.

That said, Mikey is looking a little lonely up there on the shelf all by his lonesome so let me bust him out and get on with the review!

Better late than never?

So it’s been a few months since SDCC and despite our best efforts, we had to wait all this time to actually go through and process/edit the hundreds of photos we took over the course of the event.

I could regale you with a long story about professional life/family life/LIFE life getting in the way of getting it done in a more timely manner.. but that’d probably bore you, if I haven’t already.

As always, the cosplayers really brought their A-game to SDCC this year. Walking the floor snapping shots of them are one of my favorite pastimes during the con. I’m astonished by the talent as well as the cajones often on display. Between SDCC and walking the beaches in Hawaii.. I’m constantly reminded that I need to put the donut down and hit the gym.

One day, I just might.
