Hello, and welcome to Day Two of "Impromptu Super Powers Gallery Week" here at "The Highlight" as presented by "Men of Action" here at "Action Figure Insider."  Yes, the quotation marks are being thrown around "liberally" and "frequently" for this go-around as we take a look at Brazilian company Estrela’s Super Powers releases.  The more…

I was goofing around with the light box today and taking some pictures for the website when I decided to start taking good, quality images of everything I have.  So, I figured people might enjoy seeing some of the results.  While I don’t have enough information to do a formal blog on the Super Amigos…

Hey there, Xenozoic fans! After posting a blog about the Cadillacs & Dinosaurs toy line a month ago I received some feedback from creator Mark Schultz. I had a couple specific questions I was hoping Mark would elaborate on and he kindly obliged. Although there are lots of other interesting topics we could talk about,…

  The annual Origins Games Fair was held this past week in Columbus, Ohio and I was able to go and check things out for two of the five days the show ran for. Every year it seems there are a couple of games that catch my eye. This year is no exception.  Ex Illis…

So it was a strange week, with 4 deaths in the entertainment world in short succession. First Farrah Fawcett, then Michael Jackson, followed this weekend by Billy Mays and Fred Travelena.  It certainly ranks up there with previous back to back passings, such as 2003’s Johnny Cash/John Ritter event, or 1997’s back to back travelers…

My wife and I spent a good amount of time this spring building a landscape wall in front of our house. Over the course of one long weekend we had the task of applying this natural stone veneer one piece at a time. She would "butter" the stones with the adhesive mortar and I would…

Cobra Officer Building on a topic I had briefly mentioned on my own site’s blog recently, and one that came up last month on the AFI forum, diversity in comic books, animation, and action figure lines is a big issue for me. This is something that dates back all the way to my childhood. Since coming into…

kickass.jpg This is the greatest collecting day ever.  Not only did my good friend Joe Grunenwald score me a 33-back Super Powers Batman off of eBay (when I thought I’d missed it), but I just unpacked the following…which all showed up at once.  It’s mind-blowing. From left-to-right  : Top Row – Super Amigos Batman, Robin (only…
