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.

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…

brawl.jpg OK, so I’m a couple days late – but being a baseball fan, and Diehard Cubs fan in particular, this is one of my favorite times of the year. Not just for baseball, but also the springtime, which means warmer weather, longer daylight, the end of crappy cold winter day & those fun-filled lazy summer days are…

ok the dramatic title aside, recently some issues have arisen that will make it much more difficult to collect all the things I have in the past – not to say that I will have to stop completely, but financially it will just be more difficult and I really have to think hard about my…

…and I am in the midst of repaying like a dozen bets that somehow I knew I would be paying off before the game even started, since I knew that Rex Grossman would be doing a great Jake Plummer impression during the game. I’m surprised the guy didn’t throw 7 INTs and fumble 40 yards…

In honor of the totally sweet and awesome Chicago Bears making it to the Big Game, I thought it would be fun to hold a contest of sorts.  For all the smack-talkers out there, all you fans who hate Da Bears or think they suck or otherwise shouldn’t be in the Super Bowl, I will…

Flagg-catalog.jpg With the holidays here, this seemed like a good time to share my memory of receiving one of the greatest gifts ever. Read on!   1985.  Arguably the greatest toy year ever, with Masters of The Universe, Transformers and G.I.Joe at the heights of popularity.  During that spring I had received the G.I.Joe Snow Cat vehicle, and…

stop-go.jpg I don’t know what its like in your area, but around here people have no concept of the Four-Way Stop system. None. At all. My life is in danger every single time I pull up at one of these deathtraps. Either no one goes, sitting in their spot for five minutes OR these morons hit…

festivus3.jpg You savvy Seinfeld viewers are no doubt familiar with this holiday, but for those who aren’t – a brief summary on the phenomenon known as Festivus. Created as a plot device for a Seinfeld episode, Festivus is a nondenominational celebration of the shunning of the traditional commercialism and materialism that accompanies the holiday season.  Frank Costanza…
