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…

The newest JLU poll is now active here at AFI.  A little bit of history.  I went to SDCC 2006 and was surprised by what was revealed.  Instead of the characters I was hoping for, there were some very odd choices and some odd variants.  Then I remembered.

namestrip.jpg   Welcome, one and all to yet another Super Powers highlight.  Today I’m showcasing perhaps the most common of the Gulliver Super Powers releases, Wonder Woman.  Keep in mind that when I use the term "most common" I mean it’s still rarer than nearly every single US carded release and most of the Super Amigos. …

  I started a thread here on AFI a few days back asking for folks ten most wanted characters in Hasbro’s new Marvel Universe toyline. There’s been a similar thread going on over at Fwoosh, too. Part of the fun of collecting is the guessing and hoping what characters might be coming down the pipe….

I don’t collect Mattel’s DCUC line but there have been some figures that I’ve wanted to pick up just because they’re so dang cool. Back when I saw wave 6 for the first time I grabbed the Hawkman, stared at it for a while and then reluctantly put it back in fear of the "slippery…

mm7.jpg Hello, and welcome to the first "common" edition of whatever this thing is that I call a blog.  I’m going to be not only highlighting the rarites I have in my collection, but also everything else…no matter how common.  Yes, I know y’all are chomping at the bit for my 12-back Lex Luthor highlight, but…

I thought this was interesting.  It applies more to vintage collecting (the article is actually in reference to coin collecting), but a lot of Mr. Buffett’s theories can be applied everywhere from Super Powers to Justice League Unlimited.  I noticed that I was exercising all the principles he identified the way I’ve been collecting vintage…
