See what I did there? Ahem… On the heels of yesterday’s post about my newfound Doctor Who obsession, I thought I’d touch on the one aspect of Who fandom I glossed over, the toys.  Since the beginning of the 2005 series, Character Options has produced an ever-expanding, ever-deepening roster of aliens, monsters, heroes, and villains…

I found myself on an errand today which put me farther away from home than usual.  And close to a Target store.  And thus began a toy run unlike I usually make.  You have to understand.  Usually I only go to a store if I am passing by.  I don;t normally go out of my…

I’m going to talk to you guys more this year. From late 1992 to early 1996, in what seems like several lifetimes ago now, I worked at Tower Video.  It was intended as a summer job (my first) to fill my days between the last day of high school and the first day of collage. …

I’ve basically been collecting toys my whole life.  There was maybe an 8 month break my senior year in High School that I stopped buying stuff… but I still HAD all my Star Wars, Shogun Warriors and Transformers out on display for any and all to see.   I started college in 89′ right after…

crystal_ball.jpg I’ve never done real predictions for the year ahead before, but I do weigh in on things going down in the industry as they come up on message boards. A boss of mine once asked me how I always seemed to know what was going to happen; the truth is that you just have to…

I know this has been a long time coming but, we finally got this cut together and uploaded (no thanks to the punks at YouTube!) Daniel (Julius) and Jason (ToyOtter) interview Jim Mallon (Gypsy) and Trace Beaulieu (Crow T. Robot and Dr. Clayton Forester) of Mystery Science Theater 3000 about their new 20th Anniversary Boxed…

happy_new_year.jpg   OK,  every year I avoid making any New Year’s Resolutions as I know I’m going to break them sooner or later. It’s a farce designed to make you feel like you’re being productive but in actuality you’re just saying you’ll do something in the future based on a bogus deadline. Why not a "new…

I received a nice holiday greeting and update from Tracy and our friends at Electric Tiki which contained a lot of new information on their upcoming projects for 2009.  There’s some really exciting stuff coming and the previews showing up on ET’s site and Tracy’s blog are going to blow a lot of people away!…

Gerard Way has managed to make quite a name for himself in the comics industry over the past year—racking up an Eisner for Best Limited Series, and a Harvey for Best New Series, for his breakthrough miniseries The Umbrella Academy: Apocalypse Suite. In tandem with series artist, multiple-Eisner winner Gabriel Bá, Way has created a bizarre…

I’ll bet I’m not the only one with fond memories of Underoos. I can’t quite recall which specific sets I had save for this photo of my brother, sister and I decked out for Halloween in Underoo enabled costumes. No, my sister is Wonder Woman. I’m Superman. Anyway, my mom has never accepted that I’ve…

Well, 2008 is gone. It royally sucked, and might have been the worst year in recent memory. To celebrate, I’m going to share the pain with a select few companies in the first ever… Golden Otter Awards! So a word before we begin: these are my awards, my opinions, and you will possibly disagree with…

                                         We have been planning for quite some time to reveal the second of our custom figure events, this one showcasing the Justice League Unlimited figures – and after some delays, the JLU Custom Showcase is live!
