Jason "JJJason" Chirevas
Jason Chirevas is a toy collector whether he likes it or not (and he often doesn't). This former Would've-Been Action Hero is as interested in the humanity, psychology, and psychosis of collecting as he is in the action figures themselves. Fun guy.

Like most denizens of AFI, I’m on the hunt for DC Universe Classics Series 2.  As you may have read, I have Black Manta and Superman Blue, so far.  The only other figure I’ve seen is Superman Red. The Target closest to my house is usually a disaster area by 5PM, but it doesn’t seem…

I have few personal heroes, but two of them are Teddy Roosevelt… …and this guy.   Just finished watching the 60 wonderful cartoons in Warner Bros. Popeye The Sailor Volume 1 and it’s an instant Most Cherished Possession.  From the packaging, to the menus, to the restoration, to the extras, to the glory of the cartoons themselves, everything about this set is first class and I can’t…

I finally found remnants of DC Universe Classic Series 2 the other day.  Here are my reviews of the two figures I bought… Black Manta: There never needs to be another Black Manta figure. Superman Blue: There never needs to be another Superman Blue figure. The End I don’t even like Superman Blue as a…

The first day on the job is (hopefully) the toughest. Readers of my old AFI blog, Tales of a Would’ve-Been Action Hero know I’m a big wrestling fan, but you don’t need to like or know anything about wrestling to appreciate this. This past Tuesday night, WWE installed former American Gladiators host Mike Adamle as the new lead announcer for their ECW brand.  It did…

If you’re a G.I. Joe fan or, indeed, a M.A.S.K. fan, you know the Interwebs is currently ablaze with buzz about the return of Matt Trakker in the G.I. Joe 25th Anniversary line.  It happened this way… Hasbro just posted a poll in which fans can vote for essentially the Best Of the new 3…

A few weeks ago, I came home from some errands happy that I’d found the Power Rangers Super Legends Lord Zedd chaser figure.  I’m not a huge Power Rangers fan, but Zedd’s always been my favorite of their villains and blah, and blah, and blah. When I got home, there were three people in the…

images.jpeg I like quasi, not-quite-real sports. Let’s get that out of the way right now. In our history, there have been athletes who have crossed over into celebrity, and sometimes even superhero, status. Babe Ruth was probably the first, but guys like Joe Namath, Michael Jordan, and, today, Tiger Woods (though, let’s be honest, golf is…

I DEFY you… …to watch this…   …more than once and then get the song out of your head.  Although maybe it’s just something than happens to Disney freaks like me.  Hot Dog!!! -JJJ

Last year, at about this same time, I wrote my first movie review here at the mighty TOWBAH.  You might remember how it worked; spoiler-free thoughts, star rating (* to ****), then spoiler laden thoughts.  That’s what we’re doing again today.  Then, it was Saw III.  Now it’s, you guessed it…     The Saw…

Aots_logo_new.jpg It started during SDCC. I didn’t even plan to watch.  I was just flipping by. I swear. When I saw it, I didn’t want to like it.  Even though I knew they’d once featured AFI. I was drawn in a bit, then I started watching the regular show. I found myself learning about things I…

Big_Boss_Man.jpeg This is a post about professional wrestling.  Turn back now if you feel the need. Or, keep reading and you might learn something. I’ve been a pro wrestling fan since I was nine.  It was 1984.  I sat on the floor in front of our big TV.  My mother, pregnant with my sister, slept on…

ratatouille-1.jpg This past Friday, my wife and I saw the new film from the reunited (I’m happy to say) Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar Animation Studios, Ratatouille.  The Pixar films are always an event for us, but I went into Ratatouille looking for more than just Pixar’s usual dedication to quality animation, character, and story.  I…

150px-SMCW.jpg I was in KB Toys last week looking for Rocky III figures (an entire peg of Thunderlips, but still no Clubber Lang).  As I rifled, a guy who was in the aisle when I got there sidled up and asked if I collect action figures.  I admitted as much and he said, pointing to the…

It’s been a little while. In my meager writing career, I’ve published a few short stories and a 26-part serial which was written under contract for a publication that never really got off the ground.  Long story.  None of them is my dream.  I’ve begun work on a novel.  Its publication is my dream.  Time…
