DSC04609-500x373.jpg   “From days long ago, from uncharted regions of the universe, comes a legend – The legend of Voltron, Defender of the Universe!”   I remember the days, rushing home and turning on the TV, waiting to hear those words.

NTG Recently, I’ve been following the little company that could deliver HUGE – Shark City Ozark, or SCO Collectibles.  Being a giant fan of the film "JAWS", I quickly discovered that no one makes ’em better than SCO.  I have been granted the opportunity to interview the principle owner, operator, sculptor and artist, Mike Schultz.  Mike…

NTT Those of you who know me know that I have a burning passion for the film "Jaws". Until recently, there has been only a few notable collectibles available of the beast known simply as “Bruce”, and all of them have left me wanting in some fashion or another.

ymsf Since the great resurgence of 1984, Godzilla fans and collectors (like myself) have had only a few offering annually , and the vast majority of those toys have been the Bandai vinyl figures.

snake2   As a lifelong Godzilla fan and collector, the pickings were kind of slim. In the 1970’s, we were treated to a Shogun Warriors Godzilla, which was pretty off-model, an un-articulated PVC that came with a playset, and the Aurora model, which was as articulated (not at all) as most offerings. We were teased by…

I know, I know.  I love Star Wars, as many of you out there undoubtedly do.  Hasbro has given us some great figures, box sets, and even vehicles like the awesome new AT-AT.  However, even though their scale is tailor-made for it, Hasbro has publicly stated time and again that playsets just aren’t in the cards. …
