I walk into my local Target store and what do I see?    Secret Wars and "Super Powers" figures right next to each other on the shelf!  What an awesome time to be a collector!   (Yes, I know Secret Wars only ran from 1984-1985, but Super Powers ran from 1984-86 and "Shazam" was a…

This one is all about the nostalgia, folks. The moment I laid eyes on this set of figures some part of me was taken back 25 years. Even though I couldn’t remember many details of the cartoon Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends, I knew it must have had an impact on my younger self –…

I teased an image in my first blog, one that featured both the holiday Hal Jordan and the recent SDCC Hal Jordan. I had hoped I’d be able to come up with something interesting to write about them. I couldn’t. So I’m just going to throw a few pictures at you and call it a…

Okay, so not quite $40, but $38.70. That’s what you want from me for a Justice League Unlimited four-pack, Mattel. And that was cool, at least until you dove headfirst into the deep end of the crazy pool with some of the character selections. For a team that was so concerned about the sales of…

A week or so ago I was cruising my local Target checking to see if their most recent reset was complete. I was cranking down the back isle passing board games and Nerf guns, eyes fixed on the action figure isle. A row or two before my destination I caught a glimpse in my perif…

Well, in the six or so months since I last updated the classic Super Powers line-up with DCUC figures we’ve seen a few more slots filled. It’s amazing to think of it, but within a year we should have (for the first time!) the entire Super Powers roster recreated with a modern day line. So…

Well, this year at SDCC I ended buying much more than I usually do, albeit a lot of it for friends and co-workers. I’m not normally one who wants exclusives unless it’s a new character than fits into an existing collection. not just a variant or retool (slimed Egon, anyone?) But this year I did…

A while back, one of the other Men of Action blogged about the shirts he’d picked up over the years. Ever since, I’ve been thinking about writing a similar blog about mine.  Here goes.

I bought my first Justice League figure in the summer of 2003. It was Attack Armor Green Lantern. I had been eyeing the line and once I saw that cool green translucent force field I bought in. Heck, there were only 6 characters. (Hawkgirl was ify at that point if I remember correctly.) I loved…
