brainiac05.jpg As promised…another blog! Yes, I know…so soon after the first one of the year, too! Well, let me tell you, it’s exhausting work bragging…errr, BLOGGING about the cool stuff I’ve acquired for my collection. It really satisfies my huge ego…errr, makes me humbled to share with my fellow like-minded brethren. Up for showcasing today are…

shazam02.jpg …and we’re back! Boy, that commercial seemed like an eternity, eh? Wait, what? It really HAS been over 5 months since the last highlight? Wow…I’ve been a supreme slack-ass, for sure. Well, rest assured loyal readers (reader?) that one of my (few) New Year’s resolutions is to blog more…to the tune of once a week…

    …and yes, there will be detailed blogging. Peace, Chip

First off, thanks to Jim Abell for inspiring this blog.  Sometimes all it takes is one sentence in a message board post and the idea springs to life.  It was far more difficult than I realized, but that’s because I set a limit of trying to complete it by my 4th cup of coffee. This…

275px-Livewire_Closeup.jpg Well, I really hope this is the last time I’ll have to revisit this blog.  SDCC 2009 has come and gone, and while some solid figures were revealed to be coming from Justice League Unlimited…I’m left wanting.  I actually had a different opening statement here, but I read a quote from someone over at Fwoosh…

estrelaplasticman.jpg A deconstruction of the practice, in pictures…because I don’t need someone else to tell me my figure is in great shape.  I also like the "5 Feet" argument : an AFA90, AFA85, AFA80 or AFA75 all look *exactly* the same from 5 feet away.  Also, as far as I’m concerned it’s "artificial rarity" due to…

advertising6.jpg Well, I’ve got something special today for my loyal readers (reader?) out there.  When I worked as a graphic designer for 8 years at my home town’s newspaper in New York, one of the things we’d sometimes have to incorporate into the ads was a piece of "line art" provided by a company specific to…

gl4.jpg Hello, and welcome to "Back To Normal" week here at The Highlight.  LOL.  Today we have the "Small Card" Green Lantern figure, which is technically a Shell Gas Station promotion produced for the Canadian market.  This sub-line was released on smaller cards due to less space being available at point-of-sale (hey, it’s a gas station). …

Well, sadly we’ve come to the final day of "Impromptu Super Powers Gallery Week."  However, there’s something extra-special for you today…two rare figures that (as far as I know) don’t exist in online image form at any site other than right here.  The Lily Ledy company out of Mexico produced the "Super Podores" line…and yet…

Welcome to Day Four of "Impromptu Super Powers Gallery Week!"  It’s Euro-Disney time!   Okay, that was lame, but do you know how difficult it is to write concurrent witty opening statements for days on end?  It’s damn tough, I tells ya.  Today we serve up a healthy helping of European goodness, both with "Free Poster"…

It’s Day Three here at "Impromptu Super Powers Gallery Week," where on a whim I decided to just take good shots of everything I have foreign-wise and share them with everyone here at AFI and…well, does anyone *outside* of AFI read this thing?  Chime in if ya do, I’d love to hear from you.   Anyway,…

Hello, and welcome to Day Two of "Impromptu Super Powers Gallery Week" here at "The Highlight" as presented by "Men of Action" here at "Action Figure Insider."  Yes, the quotation marks are being thrown around "liberally" and "frequently" for this go-around as we take a look at Brazilian company Estrela’s Super Powers releases.  The more…
