These aren’t mine, but someone brought them by the office for me to look at so I couldn’t resist putting them in with the rest of my JLU and taking a few shots.  I can’t WAIT for this set!     As you can see I threw in a Bandai Teen Titans Beast Boy, just…

flashlight1.jpg Hello hello!  Welcome yet again to another installment of the blog preferred by none of my ex-fiancees…the Super Powers Highlight!  I’m switching it up (still) before I get back to writing about the SP action figures and NOT covering one again this time.  Super Powers to me, is more than the action figures.  There are…

electrohead.jpg This is the first time I’ve felt compelled & justified in making a short "addendum" blog to one of my previous entries.  As my loyal readers will remember, a short time ago I wrote about the Electro figure in my first Secret Wars Highlight. Well, my new friend Jason Sanders read that, sent along two…

I just linked to an eBay auction about a figure and saw this text in the auction.  I’ve seen it before.  It makes me cringe.  And usually I do not bid. "Seller will LEAVE FEEDBACK in return once Buyers RECEIVED purchased items & LEFT FEEDBACK for Seller. " According to this, feedback for the buyer…

gulliver02.jpg A pretty damn cool thing, this is.  It’s the pack-in catalog for the Secret Wars figures released by the Gulliver toy company in Brazil. Note that all the figures come with stands, as well.  I’ve only ever seen two of the carded Gulliver releases come up for sale, and they’ve both been very expensive.  Hopefully…

An APA or Amateur Press Association is a group of people who produce individual pages or magazines, which are typically referred to as “zines,” that are sent to a Central Mailer for collation and distribution to all members of the group. Long before the advent of the internet and personal computers, APAs were a way…

Anime Boston – What is a Super-Hero fan to buy? Saturday.  I had circled the dealer rooms twice.  Only New England Comics display caught my eye.  They had trade paperbacks of their Tick series.  But at NYCC earlier this year I had been able to pick up Showcase volumes for 5$ each.  25$ or more…

It’s no secret around these parts that I’m a Super Powers collector.   I have a complete loose collection and a (near) complete carded collection.   But, I can’t just stop with the 33 figures in the line.   For the past 3 years I have been buying Super Powers customs.   Mostly loose, but…

I spent last weekend at Anime Boston, a convention for Anime fans.  Like comic conventions, they have panels, people dressed as characters, costume contests, artists signings, dealer rooms, etc.  I hope to cover several aspects of the convention over a series of blogs. One panel we attended was "The Chibi Project."

When the end result shows up in the mail in bunches, it makes the soreness in the morning and the aches and pains when I roll into my condo at 11:30pm each night worth it.  My boss at the piano store (where I have my packages sent) was kind enough to drop them into my…
