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.

So, I'm reading William Shatner's latest autobiography… …and, when he mentioned this, I knew I had to see it.   [youtube]PUEI7mm8M7Q[/youtube]   Hee Hee, "computing."   -JJJ

Yep, it certainly is.

AHIndianaJonesCairo.jpg Adventure. I love that word.  It’s one of my favorites.  I think it’s one of the most inclusive, evocative words we have and hearing it makes me happy. Tonight, we’re going to talk about adventure as combined with another of my favorite words, hero.  Specifically, we’re going to talk about when the two words, along…

Hike3.jpg A couple weeks ago, my wife and I agreed to go hiking with another couple who’d wanted to do so for a long time.  Once we agreed, I told my friend to pick the place since he’s experienced in such things. This is where we "hiked"…

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…

Do your bit.

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…

Jakks1.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…
