Some men like to fish. I've never understood it really. I've gone fishing before. Not my thing. Or maybe it is and I'm only now realizing it.I have long enjoyed going out for toy runs. Hitting the Walmart, Target, and Toys R Us action figure aisles can be a blast. There's nothing quite like turning [...]

Last year I was able to obtain the SDCC exclusive Sgt. Slaughter action figure through a Twitter pal. This year, that same pal tried and was unable to retrieve this year's exclusive. (Thanks for trying, buddy! I appreciate the effort!) Never fear, ebay came to the rescue and I have continued to keep up with [...]

When Hasbro started the G.I. Joe 25th Anniversary line a few years ago, I thought they were awesome, but I hesitated getting into it until I saw that the line really took off. At this point, I have a pretty decent sized collection. More than I planned to get. Probably more than I should have [...]

The A-Team Van

I love The A-Team. I love action figures. So, it's no surprise to you to learn that I broke down and bought the new "Classic A-Team Van" by Jazwares.The figures seem cool enough, but until I see the movie, I don't want to make an investment into action figures based on those actors. I'm sure [...]

It’s not easy wearing green.

When it comes to picking clothes, I'm a pretty plain guy. I typically gravitate towards khaki pants and a pullover. I don't wear stripes, plaid or any other patterns. And the colors I pick are generally pretty drab...black, gray, navy, that sort of thing. My wife found a bunch of pullovers on sale one day [...]

It’s not a doll! It’s an ACTION FIGURE! (part 1)

In my years of collecting toys, I've tended to gravitate towards figures that are between 3 and 6 inches in height. (Maybe someday I'll do a history lesson on my favorite toylines through the years, but that's another post.) I guess, in my mind, once the figure reaches the 9 or 10 inch range, has [...]

Our boy CT will be fascinated to learn that I went out and saw "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra."CT, I tell you what . . . I would've preferred a movie that hewed more closely to the comics or the filecards or "Resolute," but this was fun. This had the manic energy of being [...]
