dst_trek_picard.jpg Diamond Select Toys has breathed new life into an old love of mine. Star Trek has been a part of my life since I can remember. My family watched the series on it’s original NBC run when I was a toddler (the original series debuted in 1966…I debuted in 1965). I don’t remember those as…

I’m sure we’ve all gotten the odd sidelong glance from parents or employees while trolling the pegs for the latest treasure, but here’s something I hadn’t encountered until yesterday. I’m in the Wal-Mart figure aisle, flipping through the DC Superheroes.  Behind me, a guy is trying to align a large, unwieldy box under the price…

Delusional and Hubristic 80s Kids I know I’m probably overloading on YouTube, but I think it’s the greatest thing since the original Netscape browser.  Here are two gems that cannot be ignored if you haven’t already seen them: the below subpar rapping of the Average Homeboy and the incredible overacting of Brian Atene. What makes these such great clips is…

SuperPowerLogo.gif   As some of you know, I am a certified James Robinson Starman nutjob.  Loved the character of Jack Knight, loved the series and Tony Harris’ artwork and loved pretty much anything else associated with the property. Still do. I re-read all the trades on a fairly continual basis – just great, great stuff. So with apologies to Robinson…

Strider.jpg *Almost. In our first visit of the blog era, I listed ten things I believe you can do to escape or avoid toy addiction.  Subsequently, I thought of an eleventh item for that list, but there’s a problem. The eleventh thing you can do to beat toy addiction would have been… There are two kinds…

Go Vote! That’s it. Polls close at 7pm (I think). Go vote. Doesn’t matter for who. Or go vote against. Just do it. Want to show that Iraq was bad? Go vote. Want to demonstrate our freedom to other countries? Go vote. Please! It does matter (except in Florida)! VOTE!!!! Old School Election Cartoon:  [youtube]Ckr1tZitZtU[/youtube] New School…

We’re going to try something different here at the mighty TOAWBAH.  We’ll see how you like it. If there is one enthusiasm I have more passion for than action figures, it is film.  Before I was a Would’ve-Been Action Hero, I was a Would’ve-Been Screenwriter.  I wrote a short film back in 1995 or so that…

gt_rp2_chad.jpg Action Figures based on sports are nothing new. Back in the late 1980s Kenner Products introduced Starting Lineups. They were pretty cool for the time. They made heavy reuse of body molds, had limited articulation and were very pre-posed. All these factored into why I never got into collecting them. I’ve got one..and it’s one…

KFED.jpg  Every Halloween we all get dressed-up, act like fools and steal candy from neighborhood kids when they come to the door. But does everyone know the history behind the holiday?    The origin of Halloween dates back 2,000 years to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain (pronounced sow-in).  While most dictionaries of Celtic Languages don’t…
