Back in the early to mid 80’s I was a Marvel Comics aficionado. My tastes developed over that time in such a way that eventually I would only buy comic books if I liked the artist. This means I followed John Byrne pretty closely. I remember being blown away with the art in his short… Read More

Call me crazy, but I often keep buying the same characters over and over.  If it’s one of my favories, I collect and customize endless variations of the same the character.  I know.  It’s a bit odd.  My good pal FreshMonkey has a much saner approach to collecting.  He simply gets one "definitive" version of… Read More

Today’s toys have risen in quality in leaps and bounds over the toys of my youth. The sculpting is better, the molding is better, the packaging…can be better at times, and the articulation is in a whole other league. And for the most part, the painting is better. Well, sometimes, that is. For companies like… Read More

Three years. I realize three years isn’t the longest stretch of time, but it’s still hard to believe this place called Action Figure Insider has already been on the Interwebs for three years. It’s been a blast being a part of the crew here, and in many ways a dream come true. I first met… Read More

When I got home, there were three people in the… Read More

     So I’m sitting at my desk weeks ago, trying to figure out some sort of neat little hook for my blog.  I tend to write about random crap, whether inside the world of toys or not.  In my bio I’m going to recap my online history and basically attempt to justify why people should… Read More
