bob1.jpg Well, that turned out to be a bit longer than I had planned on. It’s been four long years since my last look at the “rejected” concepts that my former co-workers and I came up with when we were working on promotions for the launch of Star Wars: Episode One, The Phantom Menace. And it…

medium So these days it seems like no one is totally happy with the companies that are making mainstream toys. If it’s not the price hikes, it’s the selection. Or the quality control. Or the shoulders are backward. Sure, sure, these problems are all annoying, especially in light of the price you pay for the toys…

As the years have gone by and I’ve gotten older (and wiser?) I’ve come to notice that every time one of our  distinguished men of AFi have posted pictures of their past childhood holiday toy pictures that something has been missing from my life: namely, and similar pictures of MY childhood Christmases filled with toys….

So I know folks have been watching this blog daily, asking themselves “Where is ToyOtter, and when will he blog again?” Well, folks, the answer is simple: I’ve been scouring the Earth for you, looking for quality Bollywood clips to post. And brother, do I have a clip for you! Featuring the International star Chiru…

the-space-shuttle-columbia-lands-at-kelly-air-force-base-san-antonio-texas-march-1979-300x2401.jpg Or, what the Space Shuttle means to me. On Thursday, July 21 2011,  US Space Shuttle Atlantis touched down for the final time, returning from the last mission that the shuttle program will fly for the United States.  The program and the shuttles themselves have been retired, cast aside due to a national lack of…

I’m going to be taking a hiatus from writing about toys to concentrate on a few outside projects that need my full attention, so this is going to be my last blog post for what might be quite awhile. And although I have a lot of great blogs sitting around in various stages of completion,…

  Toy Fair 2011 has come and gone and while this year seemed a bit more sedate for what new items were shown, one group of action figures stood out above all others: DC Universe Classics Wave 18. Why are these toys special, you ask? Because for the first time ever, not only do we…

OK, so I’ve been pretty lax on introducing my millions of readers to much needed Bollywood glory. But maybe the long wait for a new clip has been worth it. I’m not exactly sure how they did it, but I think Bollywood (Russia? Azerbaijan) somehow was able to film Michael Bay’s actual dreams. This is…

So I’m going through some old AFi files while working on a new project for the site (more on that later) and I stumbled across our gallery of concepts that Toy Biz never got to make before getting out of the toy business. Of course, one concept in particular is painful every time I see…

So Hot Toys unveiled its new Indiana Jones figure at their 10th Anniversary showcase last week and it got me thinking: who would have thought 10 years ago that we would have so many Indiana Jones toys to choose from? Back then all you could find were the old Kenner figures and the extremely hard…

 

December 5, 2010
So the other night, just before Thanksgiving, I decided to hit Walmart around midnight. It’s been many years since I made a late night toy run, for a variety of reasons. But mostly because I usually have much better things to do with my time than to make a special trip just to turn up…
