valiant_oldnew1.jpg So, it’s already been reported here at AFi (here and here), as well as some of the other toy sites, and speculated about on various forums, that David Vonner (who has worked on fan-favorite lines like Marvel Legends and Marvel Universe in his time at Toy Biz and Hasbro) is working on a new project….

photo-4-150x1501.jpg I always regretted not buying the Toynami Herculoids sets when they were easily available. They are definitely one of the coolest cartoon families ever. Of course, I had only vague recollections of the cartoon so I watched a couple episodes the other day. Pretty much what you’d expect from a Alex Toth / Hanna-Barbera cartoon…

BlackLightning-117x150.jpg One of the great things about HeroClix was being able to build a team of whatever characters you wanted. Case in point: I was always disappointed that in the late 70′s Black Lightning had turned down membership in the Justice League of America. HeroClix gave me the chance to build a team of Superman, Batman,…

BLOGgofigures-open1.jpg I love taking pictures of the little plastic people. Its kinda my grown-up way of playing with my toys. As an adult, I don’t think its quite possible to replicate that very imaginative space children occupy when playing with their toys. Trust me, I’ve tried. Through the eyes of a child, toys become more than inanimate…

PowerLords_logo1.jpg Well, Toy Fair 2013 is in the history books. For me, this was one of the better Toy Fairs of recent memory. Well, part of the reason was technically outside of Toy Fair proper and that would be the unveiling of the Four Horsemen’s upcoming Power Lords revival at their Toypocalypse event. I am so…

ASM_CHECKLIST-463x600.jpg I was remiss in not reporting that the latest WizKids HeroClix release was last Wednesday.  So here is the picture checklist (minus the chase figures). Here is an example of a chase piece.  Notice the red base.  The chase pieces since the Incredible Hulk set have had different colored bases from the normal black base…

BLOGpinewood-open1.jpg You ever have a moving box of miscellaneous stuff that just never gets unpacked? I’ve had one that’s travelled with me to multiple homes. Ever time I look at it I get irritated because I’m kind’uv an anti-packrat. Finally the other day I decided enough was enough, the box was getting unpacked even if it…

BLOGpeewee-open1.jpg “There’s a lotta things about me you don’t know anything about. Things you couldn’t understand. Things … you shouldn’t understand.” I’m not sure if its taken six months to write this blog because the lines quoted above are how I feel a little, but, if you’ll forgive my tardiness I’ll plow ahead! A couple years…

TeenTitansGo-TitansEast1.jpg Young Justice and Green Lantern Animated are ending.  It appears that replacing them in the DC Nation block will be a new take on Batman and a new take on Teen Titans.  The new Teen Titans show appears to be modeled after the DC Nation shorts of hilarious escapades of the cast of the prior…

The “Hills” Are Alive… With Toys! Over the holidays I was talking to fellow AFi staffer Cantina Dan about the “olden days” of collecting and I mentioned my time in the mid 90′s out east and hitting “Hills” department stores as part of my regular run.   I never had Hills in the mid-west and they seemed to be a treasure trove…
