SDCC Exclusive First Order Storm Trooper

SDCC First Order Stormtrooper (8)

A while back, I posted about my San Diego Comic Con exclusive Jabba The Hutt figure that I’d picked up to add to my Star Wars Black Series collection. I’ve been keeping up with this collection for the most part and when this year’s SDCC exclusive was announced I knew that I just had to have it. Introducing the First Order Storm Trooper from the upcoming The Force Awakens! I’m sure I’ll get some flack … Continue reading

Star Wars Black Series – Jabba’s Throne Room

Jabba's Throme Room (5)

I haven’t done a ton of toy collecting lately, but what I have picked up (and gotten completely sucked into) is The Black Series (6″ line) from Hasbro. These figures are absolutely stunning and they’ve done what no Star Wars toy has been able to do in the last 30 years… make me go all in on a SW line.  The last time I had to have EVERY figure from a line was with the … Continue reading

Destro Swinging On The Pegs

Destro At Target

I don’t do much toy collecting these days for a variety of reasons, but I still have a love for some specific G.I. Joe characters.  My two all time favorite characters are Storm Shadow (the Cobra ninja) and his G.I. Joe counterpart Snake Eyes.  I’m such a big fan of those two characters that I’ll pick up a figure of them even if I’m not collecting the entire line. Anyhow… There’s a Storm Shadow figure … Continue reading

The End Of The Line – G.I. Joe Pursuit Of Cobra

G.I. Joe Action Figures

I’ve been a huge fan of G.I. Joe for about as long as I can remember.  I collected the toys when I was growing up, watched the cartoon religiously and read the comic books.  When it came time to see G.I. Joe in the theater I was one of the few who actually enjoyed it on the big screen. These days with the boys I don’t do a whole lot of toy collecting.  The vast … Continue reading

A Bit Of My Geek Collection

80's Toys

In a previous post I talked about how I’d recently gone through some boxes in the basement and pulled out some old toys, specifically my Devastator from back in the day.  That lead to a discussion on one of my favorite podcast’s Facebook page about our collections, etc.  I took this quick video to show a couple of my items and thought I’d share it here as well. It focuses on figures from the first … Continue reading

Bringing Back An Old Friend: Devastator

G1 Devastator

As you know if you read more than a post or two here, I’m a geek.  I’m a child stuck in a (fat) man’s body that simply refuses to grow up.  As I’m the father of two and (more importantly in this case) husband to one I have but one room left in the house that I can call mine…the basement.  As the kids get bigger (and require more room to run and store THEIR … Continue reading
