MMBSGCylonBox2.jpg   BATTLESTAR GALACTICA CYLON 5-PACK    Last year at Toy Fair Art Asylum gave us our first sneak peek at the New Battlestar Galactica MiniMates.  Now, one year later, due to a joint venture between Diamond Select Toys and Art Asylum we can get our mits on them.  These Cylons are based on the hit…

mgashrek_cu.jpg I love the Shrek movies. Love them. I’m eagerly anticipating the arrival of Shrek the Third next month (man, what a good movie month! Shrek! Spidey! Pirates!) and I’ve been looking forward to seeing what new license holder, MGA Entertainment (makers of the Bratz dolls) would do with the license. Three movies and three master…

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…

It’s been way too long since I wrote one of these things. Frankly, I’ve felt a bit uninspired as of late. Since Toy Fair, really. I had every grand intention of following up AFI’s Toy Fair coverage with my thoughts on the Big Dance…but when Toy Fair failed to deliver…well… It’s already been discussed ad…

Tell me about the rabbits, George. I must apologize to my more sensitive readers, but there is just no other way to descibe this that I feel will do it justice. This is some crazy, crazy shit. [youtube]A4Yf-7Z_6PE[/youtube] I surely didn’t see that coming. I didn’t see any of it coming. I’m not sure exactly what I did just see.  Can…

VictoriasKB.jpg Wow.  Now that’s WEIRD.   I know it’s been about a year since the KB toys closest to my work closed down… but to go from a KB to a Victoria’s Secret?   That’s just odd.   Of course this is the SAME mall that closed down the Suncoast for nine months… and then reopened…

150px-SMCW.jpg I was in KB Toys last week looking for Rocky III figures (an entire peg of Thunderlips, but still no Clubber Lang).  As I rifled, a guy who was in the aisle when I got there sidled up and asked if I collect action figures.  I admitted as much and he said, pointing to the…

I’ve just recently discovered "the show" with zeFrank…. which is a shame becasue the show is ending this week.    Basically our man zeFrank has been doing a little web show 3-5 minuets or so each day, every WEEK day, for a year with his thoughts on the new of the world, musings in life,…

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…

WonderMan.jpg The names have been changed to protect the innocent… or guilty.    "Bruce" works over at Cartoon Network as an animator. "Bruce" just ran across the Justice League Style Guide. "Bruce"  got bored, created something…something I can now never unsee:   And now I share it with you.  Good luck…and may God have mercy on…

I Am Death Wrapped In Butter The title has nothing to do with nothing, son. But I had to grab your attention to get something in front of your peepers, Jasper: I Love To Singa. Man, I just love the Hell out of this cartoon. I think it is my favorite of all time. Did you know the song is based…

…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…

British_Flag.gif I’ve been buying toys from overseas for years. Until recently those purchases have consisted entirely of Japanese toys. I went through a Gundam kick around 2000 after seeing Bandai’s Gundam range on display at Toy Fair 2000. Of course, I’ve grown up with Godzilla and have picked up numerous Godzilla toys from importers over the…

Just be glad it’s him not you! TOM CRUISE CRAZY!    Just in case you want to sing along!  Tom Cruise is so in love with Katie At least all his people tell him so And while he thinks that she’s a very special lady It’s probably not the way he’d choose to go And a lifetime of longing looks would cause…

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…

DugMantle1.jpg No, no… don’t worry.  This post isn’t about some super secret limited edition figure from Mattel.  Not this year! While I was back home for the holidays I got to go visit the home of one of my best friends "Dr. Loopy."   He and I got back into collecting togther back in 1990 and…
