Although it's been a while, every so often I like to point out some cool artist I find out there on the internets. The one I'm mentioning in this post is one I've "refound."As I may have mentioned before, almost 12 years ago, I interned at Marvel Comics in the editorial department. It was a [...]

It’s not a doll! It’s an ACTION FIGURE! (part 2)

I listed primarily Sideshow Toys in the last post. While Sideshow has been a dominant force in these types of collectibles, in recent years, a new company has emerged out of Hong Kong that puts everyone to shame. Hot Toys makes dolls that are so realistic, you'd think they have souls. There are several I [...]

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 [...]

Signing the Cast: Captain America

I haven't done one of these in a while, but after finishing up Battlestar Galactica recently, I decided that Jamie Bamber should be playing Captain America in the movie. Although he's not blonde, that can be fixed. Bamber played Lee "Apollo" Adama who wound up being one of only two characters on that show I [...]

I loves me some Avengers

Yessir, I loves me some Avengers. They weren't my favorite team when I was a kid --- I was more into the X-Men, which I got into just as John Romita, Jr. started drawing the book. But as I got older, I started to appreciate what a cool model it is for a team book. [...]

Micronauts!

I got a little shout out today from Brian Cronin who writes the "Comic Book Urban Legends" column at Comic Book Resources. I sent him some notes about the never-published Micronauts relaunch comic that I worked on over ten years ago back when I interned at Marvel.This would have been a great series and makes [...]
