…that would be ME. So here it is, nearly five months since my last entry. That’s terrible. Life has been unbelievably busy, with lots of changes and transitions going on in my personal life, and unfortunately my participation with AFi suffers. But I have more than a dozen different blogs half-written already, so my goal…

2012_101.jpg As the year comes to an end, it’s been tough been trying to decide who will make my short list of Top Ten Action Figures for 2012.  It’s been tough to pare it down to ten, with some really great toys just missing the cut.  My criteria? well, the web has enough articulate, detailed, and…

Flagg-catalog.jpg Just for the holidays, I’m reposting one of my favorite Times Past recollections…I hope you all had a safe and happy holiday. Enjoy! – – – – – 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…

ENDISNEAR1.jpg The End is Nigh! ok, ok, maybe you were expecting that from me, being the resident AFi Conspiracy Theorist and all.  Of course I couldn’t resist referencing the upcoming(?) Mayan Calendar Event.  But within our hobby, there is another End-of-Days Scenario unfolding. It’s the end of the (collecting) world as we know it…but do you…

batribbon1.jpg By now, you’ve likely heard the terrible news we woke up to in Colorado this morning.  It is a sad day. This happened in my own community, just a few miles from my home.  That’s a violating experience.  I appreciate all the calls, texts, and social media messages checking on our welfare.  While we are…

sue-dibny-dies1-380x600.jpg Note: I began writing this article last fall, when the topic was a bit more relevant. But I think the idea still has merit, and I’d love to hear your thoughts on how the DCnU was developed, now that we have some time and distance to reflect upon the original event and transition… -  - …

walmart1.jpg I stumbled across this amusing account of my encounter with the oft-reviled “scalper” collector from 2004.  This was posted to RTM and the AFi forums, before it was deleted during the Great Hack of the 2005.  Keep in mind, I have obviously added anecdotal aspects for the sake of entertainment, and reflects my feelings and…

In a past post, I asked you to decide which of The Big Three is the all-time biggest non-licensed action figure property; G.I. Joe, Transformers, or Masters of the Universe. Opinion was typically divided, but no one disputed…

SNOWLOTITLEA2.jpg The Han Snowlo Project: part II. So I started this goofy experiment in my last blog entry.  Over the course of Thursday through Sunday, I tracked the rate of snowfall using a broomstick and my son’s Han Solo. You can see the progress of the snow below, along with the anguished plastic cries of the…

SNOWLOTITLEA1.jpg If you’ve watched the news today, you may have seen the weather forecast for Denver. Snow, wind, snow, wind, snow…you get the idea. The NOAA has predicted between 12″ – 24″ of snow for the Denver area, along with near-blizzard conditions overnight through tomorrow. Fun. So anticipating that schools will be closed tomorrow and wanting…

It shouldn't be this hard to write a blog. … Five blog entries in 2011. Really? Seriously? It can’t be that hard…can it? I mean, there’s plenty to discuss over the past year…MattyCollector frustrations, the whole SaveDCUC effort, the slow death of JLU, the nostalgia of toylines like G.I.Joe and ThunderCats, the appeal of toylines like threeA and Hot Toys, the depressing debacle of…
