We all have vivid childhood toy memories. One stands out for me. I was out shopping with my mom and we stopped at a store called Bradlees on Rt. 23 in Wayne, NJ. Bradlees was a discount department store. In North Jersey, where I grew up, Bradlees and Jamesway were the predecessors to Target and…

CantinaDanBLOG-Chewgum2 Chewgum Warriors. So that’s what he was called. I had pretty much relegated this guy to an old but vivid memory. But some random interweb search turned up an image that stopped me dead in my tracks. At long last, justice was gonna be served.

We often visit the Kiggins Theatre, which lies across the Columbia River from us in Vancouver, Washington. The Kiggins (or “The Kig”) is a historic theater, first opened in 1935, that…

Well, it’s subscription time once again in the magical land of Mattycollector for both the DC Signature Series (aka DC Universe Classics) and Masters of the Universe Classics. Both are extensive lines, and both are certainly worthy of continuing on. However, as of this writing things are looking bleak for both subs. MOTUC is doing…

Mini Mates - Marvel Comics When I was at NYCC 2012, one of the most impressive things was the Minimates 10th Anniversary. For those who do not know, Minimates are licensed figures the right scale to go with all your Lego buildings, ships, and play sets.  You see, until recently, Lego did not make licensed figures.  Minimates, distributed most of…
