If you're a Masters of the Universe Classics collector, Dan Eardley is a household name. Pixel Dan's well written, in-depth and timely reviews of Mattel's classics line do a fantastic job of helping collectors decide if a particular item is a must buy for them.

In typical Pixel Dan fashion, here's his review of Hasbro's 30th Anniversary Zombie-Viper.
