Oafe.net, or Online Action Figure Entertainment, is a website I ran across when I was browsing for reviews pertaining to a certain toy. What a nice find!
Oafe.net is a conglomeration of reviewers who critique a wide variety of toys, which are mostly action figures. Categories of toys include Transformers, Star Wars, Marvel, NECA, McFarlene Toys, GI Joe, and much more.
The articles are observant, fun, and reflect a passion for toys. It's not a wholly professional, out-for-profit medium -- but if you want a perspective from average joes who love their toys, then these guys may be what you're looking for.
Other sections of the website include "Points of Articulation," which is like an editorial of sorts that publishes articles on a wide variety of toy related topics, whether its expressing opinions on a particular toy line or the efforts of a manufacturer. There is also a blog, forums, and link section which can lead you to toy retailer websites, manufacturer websites, and more. Finally, you have a section of the sight dedicated to customized toys, with short descriptions and photos.
Reading reviews on a toy you're looking to buy, particularly one you can't observe in person, is important before investing your money. Showroom photos are far from adequate when judging a toy. Thanks to oafe.net, you may be able to find a review on a particular toy you're interested in to stay ahead of the game and spend your wealth wisely.
I play it safe and read multiple reviews when it comes to toys, but if you want to include a particular source in your research, then oafe.net is a safe bet.
