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.

Before we begin, let me say, unequivocally, this post is born of my selfish desire to have the action figures I want based on properties I love. And I am not alone. I had two posts planned regarding Diamond Select Toys.  The first was going to be a fun Top 10 List (who doesn’t love…

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…

We look ever forward in this hobby.  SDCC is 24 hours away as I write this and, as we do each year, we’ll all be hunched over our monitors hitting Refresh every minute or so on any number of FireFox tabs.   I’m not downing the practice, I’ll be doing it along with everyone else,…
