Do I go to work today?  Or do I just keep following this truck to it’s destination in the hopes that it is filled with new JLU and DCUC wave 8?  Hmmmm…..

nitro.jpg It’s not often that a bootleg line has much originality, let alone a concept/theme that attracts someone to collect them.  Mostly they’re collected because they’re bootlegs and that’s it.  However, there’s at least one standout exception in that realm of collecting, and that standout is Brazillian company Gulliver Juguetes’ "Future Warriors."

No, I’m not running for a school board in Kansas. But like the rest of you action figure biologists I’ve enjoyed observing the emergence of newly created figures based on characters that had action figures back when little plastic life on Earth was in its infancy. The last few years in particular have seen a…

 I know we’ve said it before in the forums, but it bears repeating every so often.  An alternate place to look for – and actually find the toys you are looking for - is at your supermarket.

People have been having an issue with the DCAU and Green Lantern since a GL first appeared in Superman TAS.  I’ve enjoyed it all.

sw2.jpg Was taking some random shots today and figured I’d post a small Secret Wars collection update.  I’ve got one bookcase nearly full, with the only thing missing from the case being a Black Claw Wolverine that’s on the way.  I’ll probably buy another one of the cheap MOCs to fill that last spot before the…

One other thing DC seems to be missing about team books these days is the lineup.  Some lineups are very fluid and change a lot.  Others do not.  When you pick up an issue the Fantastic Four is supposed to be 4 specific characters.  While many teams are more fluid than this, fans expect certain…

Recently, I’ve read two comics where nothing really happened.  Titans 11 and Justice League of America 31.  And I was disappointed.

Maybe I’m older than I feel, but it doesn’t seem like it was all that long ago when a convention exclusive was actually exclusive to a convention. If you weren’t going to be there in person, you either had to have a connection who could cover you, or you had to hunt for that figure…

A vinyl toy maven I am not. But some things I find irresistible. It takes extreme will power not to drop a wad every time I get out to California and visit Kid Robot or when I stop in at Red Hot Robot here in Phoenix. Because I know that embracing the designer toy world…

In what could only be called a massive disappointment, Hasbro launched a new line of action figures based on characters from the Indiana Jones movies last year. The manufacturer was disappointed in lackluster sales that quickly resulted in retailers pulling their support. Collectors who enjoyed the toys were disappointed in the line’s quick demise. Others…
