When I first started collecting toys back around 1990 I would run into other collectors sporadically (this being in the dark days before the internet collecting community at large had coalesced around USENET, for the most part). One way I would know that they were die-hard toy hunters was that they had had "The Dream"….

Ok. So there isn’t a modern line of toys out there today that doesn’t have flaws, something for the average collector and/or fan to be aggrieved about when they inspect their new purchase. I know I’ve found them.  Loose joints, bad paint masks, bad tampo printing, oversprays, mold marks, splatters, frozen joints, scuffs, nicks, and…

 

So my girlfriend and I encountered something peculiar at a local Wal-Mart on May 1st. This particular store had previously reduced the space dedicated to G.I. JOE figures to one peg for singles and one peg for comic book two-packs, in addition to its glut of Combat Heroes sets. When I walked into the action…

I just watched the trailer for Superman / Batman: Public Enemies, the next WB/DC Animated movie on the main page of this site.  And I was moved to write.  If you’ve been reading these for a while, you know I have very opinionated views about comics.  Superman/Batman is a series that I highly recommend.

Tonight at 8:39 PM there was a magnitude 5.0 earquake centered about 1.5 miles from my house. My collection did not fare well.  It was the FIRST things to start tumbling.       I’m sure this will also be the scene in my office in the morning to stay tuned for part 2 tomorrow….

The dog ate my homework. Seriously. I was done with this blog.  Finished.  Just putting the "Peace, Chip" on the end.   I hit "Save Draft." It came back empty.   So…given who I am and my certain sense of humor, I have to say the following :

16 May 1990  May 16, 1990.  That’s the day the world lost a very unique individual — Jim Henson.

logos.jpg Welcome to my latest Super Powers Highlight!  I apologize for the relatively lengthy delay between entries.  I didn’t have access to a digital camera to take some decent shots for the blog here, but I got a chance to not only borrow one but also purchase a nice used Nikon off the ‘Bay…so hopefully no…

Oh, did I say Star Trek review? I meant my presentation of the amazing cross between "Planet of the Apes" and  "Stop, Look, and Listen": the halucinatory classic, "One Got Fat". I’ve worked for the past 48 hours with only 2 for sleep, so I didn’t see Star Trek.  [youtube]cQgAMkMmsfg[/youtube] Enjoy, you Star Trek watching…

Star-Trek-jj-abrams-62211_791_1023.jpg Know the following before we proceed: I have never loved any geekery more than Star Trek: The Original Series and its accompanying movies. I am a stickler for and lover of continuity in sagas/universes/stories. I am generally a great fan of J.J. Abrams’s work. I hated some of the things I heard Abrams say about…

  Last week I blogged about my 10 Most Wanted figures for Hasbro’s super-cool new Marvel Universe line. This week I wanted to do the same for one of my other favorite toy lines: Mattel’s DC Universe: Infinite Heroes. Most AFI readers know that I’ve been championing this line since it first debuted at the…
