Ryan "TheSuperfly" Prast
Current designer, future artist, eternal manchild, Ryan "The Superfly" Prast uses his toynerd acumen to delve deep into the profound nuances of life. With a penchant for tiny plastic men and nostalgia of times past, he also enjoys panelology, obscure cultural references, tomfoolery and/or shenanigans, conspiracy theories, and watching his Cubs flush another season down the toilet. And he always keeps his fork when there’s pie.

2167ChicagoCubsWin.jpg HOLY COW! Cubbies win the Central!! No matter how weak the division is, the Cubs went from last in 2006 to first this year, from 30 games under .500 to 84 wins so far – unbelievable!!! The Brewers gave it a great run, but the Cubs pulled it out. WOO HOO!! My Pop and I spent the…

Seriously.  I just read an article where the author wrote "livelly hood" and "frase" (phrase) and "saposed" (supposed).  How the hell can the American public be so poor at spelling?  I went to a public school, but I actually know how to spell things like "you’re" and "acquire" and "rogue".  Maybe I have some latent spelling super…

9-11_FLAG.jpg With the somber anniversary of 9/11 today, my thoughts and prayers go out to everyone that was affected by this awful event. Take a few moments today to remember the sacrifices made that day.

Roadhouse2.jpg So over the holiday weekend, we went to the family condo up in the mountains for a little downtime.  While zoning out in front of the TV, I happen to stumble upon the Patrick Swayze Marathon and one of the greatest awful movies of all time – Roadhouse.  This movie is horribly bad, but totally…

Moving. Are there many things that are less fun or more stressful that uprooting your family and possessions, duping your friends into helping you toss them into a truck and then unpack your life all over again? Ugh. Sure, we’re excited about the new house. But that excitement wears off when you realize just how…

PART III Thursday July 14 I remember the alarm going off and thinking “no way in hell is it 7 am already…” – but it was.  The night before, Aaron managed to talk me and my 6’4” frame into crashing on the 5-foot foldabed, while his filthy carcass got to enjoy the nice soft hotel bed.  Jerk! …

pikachu.jpg PART II Wednesday July 13 We survived the night in Motel Hell, choosing to not take showers and just get the hell out of there. We heard all sorts of bizarre noises during the night. Very freaky. I felt bad for Aaron since he was actually using the remote for the TV and God knows…

room.jpg The last time I was at SDCC was in 2005; I usually try to go back every other year but there’s just too much going on this year to attend.  But I can share with you guys some insight into the wild time I did have during the last trip to San Diego. Of course, for those…

So we finally found a house, after roughly a year of looking and discussing finances, schools, location, etc. Since sold our previous house last August, we’ve been renting a townhome and keeping pretty much everything packed for the eventual next move into the new house. This includes almost my entire collection of toys, prints, comic…

WOW! That’s what this line made me say out loud, when I found the single Snake Eyes & Storm Shadow last weekend at Wal-mart. I actually said it out loud – how goofy is that? Now, I don’t get truly excited over very many toys anymore. Sure, I enjoy the hobby and I dig all…

Some fathers fish, or hunt, or camp or work on cars, or more sadly, don’t do much of anything together at all. But my Dad, he and I always had three things we shared – Baseball, a love for Chicago sports, and my collecting of action figures. He never treated my love of this genre as an…

So finally, after all these years of waiting by DC fans  - FINALLY these figures have found their way to collectors’ shelves. Despite the few minor issues the fans have had with this wave, I think these figures are fantastic. Everyhting I could have hoped for and I love ‘em. DCD has knocked these outta…
