BLOGevoWicket-open11.jpg An action figure anthropologist’s work is never done. It was only two trips around the sun ago that we examined the evolutionary links between modern humans and our diminutive ancestor, the Ewok. We presented this theory through the example of one Ewok in particular: Wicket W. Warrick. But recently a more complete fossil record has…

Wave18-500x400.jpg Back when wave 18 of Mattel’s DC Universe Classics line was announced I was very excited.  I loved those old Super Friends shows.  My internet name, “superfriend” is taken from it.  And now we were getting figures.  The problem was that the price had recently gone up.  They were now 16$ each. I had no…

In a recent blog I started out talking about my hopes for the show and then channeled that into what I thought would work for a toy line.  But what I think would work is not necessarily what I want.  So lets get deep into that here my actual wants.  This what I hope to…

GreenLanternCharacters.jpg Over on another site, the question was raised, “What Next?”  What next indeed.  Most of the big name properties have been mined for sets over the past few years.  Batman, Spider-man, X-Men, Justice League, Avengers, Hulk, Superman, Captain America, Thor, Teen Titans, Iron Man, etc.  For DC, there were 3 areas mentioned over and over…

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…
