Legacy_Cover4_sm.jpg In addition to books and toys, I buy a lot of DVDs. Mainly old movies, because I’ve already discovered that they don’t always stay in print for long, and then command crazy insane prices on eBay once they’re out of print. Plus, the past few years have been great as far as the rarer films…

mickey1.jpg If there is one thing I enjoy collecting more than toys, it has to be books. I like books in all shapes and sizes, but mostly concentrate on biographies, books on history, art, and films. But one genre is the most near and dear to my heart: compilations of classic comic strips.  I think my…

Ok, I know the blogging has been inconsistent at best, but hopefully now that I have some massive projects coming to an end I can post the bits of "Otter Wisdom" a bit more frequently. First, though, I need to give massive props to our friend "Vader" who has been a tremendous help in keeping…

SigSeries1.jpg Hasbro has embraced their new Marvel license with a vengence.  We saw a LOT of new upcoming product this past August at Comic Con and Hasbro made sure that they had an aisle full of new product ready for the fourth quarter and the holiday season.  In the week leading up to Christmas Wal-mart seemed…

bootlegsh1.jpg I love finding bootleg toys.  I’ve found that it’s not too hard to find them in Los Angeles.  Lot’s of flea markets, mall kiosks and convenient stores have them around these parts.    I love their blatant disregard of not just copyrights… but years of character history!  Of course the people making these have no…

Hello again everyone and welcome to the second edition of Jason Reviews A Movie.  We kicked this off a few months ago with Saw III and I, at least, enjoyed it, so we’re going again. Just a reminder, these reviews consist of three parts.  First, I’ll give you my general thoughts, spoiler-free, then I’ll rate…

Flagg-catalog.jpg With the holidays here, this seemed like a good time to share my memory of receiving one of the greatest gifts ever. Read on!   1985.  Arguably the greatest toy year ever, with Masters of The Universe, Transformers and G.I.Joe at the heights of popularity.  During that spring I had received the G.I.Joe Snow Cat vehicle, and…

stop-go.jpg I don’t know what its like in your area, but around here people have no concept of the Four-Way Stop system. None. At all. My life is in danger every single time I pull up at one of these deathtraps. Either no one goes, sitting in their spot for five minutes OR these morons hit…

santa-sleigh.jpg I was in Target today browsing the DVDs, when a mother pushed her cart past me and beckoned her daughter follow her.  A moment later the little girl, who couldn’t have been more than three, toddled by behind me singing to herself… "You better watch out, you better not cry…"  So awesome I almost cried. …

jaz_mk_kano.jpg Today, as I was out Christmas shopping amongst the throngs of people, I picked up the just-released Kano and Reptile from the third series of Mortal Kombat figures by Jazwares.  I love ’em.  Jazwares, on the whole, doesn’t seem to get a lot of love from the collector community. Sure, they’ve had a bit of…
