It's time! Time to wonder why someone my age is still getting THIS many toys for Christmas. Seriously though: are you still wondering after having seen the contents of this blog?
Friday, December 25, 2015
For at least two years now I've posted a "tree post" and wished you Merry Whatever You Celebrate along with Christmas.
HERE IT IS AGAIN.

Back in January I helped Kickstart an action figure of Mega Man X, based on a sweet, alternate, stylized design. That figure (and two variants) arrived last month, and I've been trying to sit down and photograph all this figure has to offer since then. IT'S SO MUCH.

With my planned post once again pushed back, I turn to some other items I'm currently excited about! This'll just be a quick 'n easy photo session, but it's only because these are so easy to pose!

Hey look, it's ninjas fighting on bread! Never thought you'd see that before, eh? EH?
Alright seriously: There were many things to do this week, and all my time for pics was used for other things, so here we are again! I think I've run my photobucket dry, so this may be the final ANCIENT BOWELS OF MY PHOTOBUCKEEEET!

WHOA, I found almost another whole wave already! Thank you, Meijer! My local grocery store seems to be the only one on top of things. Come on in and take a look, folks! I guarantee you'll see toys. In here. 'Cause that's what this blog is about. Yeah.

The Gundam franchise just can't get away from the assault! Battle Assault, Assault Kingdom, Gundam Assault Survive, maybe....maybe more.
Today we'll be breaking into two parts and taking a look at what I've managed to snag from the Assault Kingdom series of candy-box figures. So, jump into your cockpit, grab the controls, push forward, and SCREEEAAAAM!!

The World of Nintendo toyline by Jakks Pacific continues, with two figures that should honestly be in stores right now: but aren't! Who knows why Toys R Us won't stock them? 'Cause they're the only ones getting the larger figures! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH-----

It's happening again! If you're unfamiliar with all of this, then simply click on the Blacklight Special tag and take a look at previous installments.

I swear I'm not doing another Kenner/NECA post on purpose! This was supposed to be the FIRST Octobersbest post, but then I found the Alien VS Predator pack and...here we are.
Lets look at some of my favorite robot skeletons!
Tuesday, October 6, 2015
It's time for Octobersbest, the time of year that sounds like "Oktoberfest" but is way cooler because I made it up. Why is October the best? It's my birth month! The weather is awesome! Halloween! All that!
There's no better way to kick off that spooky October feeling than with a couple murderous aliens!

The Nintendo train keeps rolling! Jakks Pacific has yet another wave of five inch figures out in stores. Which new faces do we need to look out for?
...those ones. The picture, up top.

My wife and I were out and about, late one night, when I ran across the WHOLE batch of the current Marvel Legends with the build-a-figure of the Hulkbuster armor!
You best believe I been lookin' forward to Hulkbuster.

A long overdue Schwag Brag! As you may well know (from scrolling down) I didn't do ANYTHING from the end of June, through all of July, and then halfway into August! That's why this Schwag Brag is gona be so big. Siddown, shaddap, and take a look!

All ya'll should know about Marauder Task Force, especially if you're a G.I. Joe fan, but if you're still bringing up the rear on some of the best customizable 1:18th toys out there now, then come on in and lemme school ya.
If you're just passing through, check out Marauder Task Force: Valkyries kickstarter to help fund female versions of the same figures, with new items to boot!
Tuesday, September 1, 2015
HEY, you there! You look like a smart fellow who likes a good mash! Why not step inside and have a look around?
...no, it's not weird stuff, it's toys. It's just----NO NOT THAT. Just get in here!

I've got a bad history with translucent weapons. I see them, my mind goes dark, and I wake up in an alley covered in them and looking like Tron threw up on me after pulling a few hundred wicked donuts on one of those light cycles.
...and here we are, with Mini-Cons.

Botcon has come and gone, and the recent reveals got me in that old Transformin' mood again! I've still got a lot of recent-to-semi-recent purchases floating around (that never made it into the bin, yet), so I figured I'd photographize them and interblogerate the photographizement for your seeing head balls to inseenerate.

My work has changed up my hours considerably for the next couple months (major construction going on). I figured I would be able to keep on track, but here we are on my second Tuesday without an update! So, either I am gona switch up when I take pics, or switch up when I post updates. Not sure which, yet. Nonetheless: Stick with me! I'm still working on the next one.
I'm very sorry about the lack of butts, this time.

NT-01 Cerebral is Krang's robot body, and you should tell everyone. Honestly though, they should already know. Look at this thing! What else could it be?

Time for another Schwag Brag - aaaaand a minor review of the Star Wars Black Series IG-88, since I don't think I'm gona give him a full run-down. Pull up a chair and join me, won't you?
Tuesday, June 2, 2015
If you've paid attention to Schwag Brags past, then you know I've got a thing for Imaginext. They cover a wide range of interests in a cute little collectible scale, and they're just plain fun!
Well, now they've got Power Rangers. Great. Let me just....grab most of them.

Here it is! The number one toy to put in a backwards time capsule so my kid self could have made use of this figure: Samus Aran, star of the video game series: Metroid.

There's a convention near Chicago called Anime Central (Acen). My friends and I have gone on and off, over the years. It has changed; we have changed. One thing has not: I buy things. I buy a lot of things. OH MAN LOOK WHAT I GOT OMG
Tuesday, May 19, 2015
Hey, folks! This weekend I went to Acen (Anime Central); a convention near Chicago. I didn't do aaaaanything in terms of preparing a post, so here's some random pictures from my photobucket until I'm done preparing pics of all the junk I bought at the convention.
Tuesday, May 12, 2015
Welcome to the first issue of what will be a continued effort to...well, force myself to look through the boxes shoved into my garage. Each box will have different old pieces of junk and toys (and junk toys) that will absolutely NOT be guaranteed to be interesting or clean in any way! Some of them went straight into the trash after this.
Join me! ...please?

I dunno what happened! At some point Hasbro was like: "We're goin' back 3 3/4 inch figures!" and Marvel Legends fell to the wayside. Now they're all like: "Okay, back to 6 inch again!" Whadoya want from me Hasbro?
Oh right, money.
Tuesday, April 28, 2015
What's that I hear? It's time for another Schwag Brag?
Oh wait no, it was just Polkaroo. That thing freaks me out, man.
Tuesday, April 21, 2015
I've been kickstarting a lot of stuff lately, but various delays in shipping or other things involved with book or toymaking has held up just about all of them (all of it totally not their faults). Out of all the Kickstarter rewards: These are the first to reach me! Skeleton Warriors!

OKAY, this is the final one, I swear! I'm all burned out on TMNT now, so I'ma post this up early to get it out of the way. Then I can move on to something else!
Tuesday, April 14, 2015
OH MAN, there were so many more of these than I had anticipated! Here we are at the second part - and I can tell ya right now - there will be a third. I'm saving the best for last, though, so here's some good-to-just-okay ones.
Tuesday, April 7, 2015
The whole joke with Grayskull finally got that monster off my table! I figured: Why not take advantage of that and dust off the Ghostbuster house for some TMNT pics?
BUT WHAT TO CHOOSE?! I haven't reviewed any TMNT in a long while, but I've still been buying them! They're piling up, man.
*Sigh* Why don't we just review everything?

My plan had been to make a bunch of these posts and put 'em up throughout the day, but THAT didn't happen. So here: I'll try to poop these out at the end of the day before the Fools end.
Tuesday, March 31, 2015
WELP, I'm all done with toys. You can dry those eyes, though, 'cause the blog will be taking a new direction! Check back tomorrow for a classic experience that is such a blast from the past that it'll literally blast you into the past. Seriously man, check it out. Tomorrow.

The planned post for this week is running a little longer than expected, so here's some pics around the house! This is all the junk I have taking up every flat surface I can find (but not pictures of all of it, because that's only privy to my friends that have to wade through it when they come over).
Tuesday, March 10, 2015
Man, they kept these things coming! Which is good for me, 'cause I like accessories! Dunno if you've heard.
