Poe’s Point > Captain…America?

So the all-new, all-different Captain America carries a gun now. Then what makes him any different from the Punisher? Especially since the Punisher recently went crazy and dressed up like Captain America for a while. And it’s not a very impressive gun, either–looks like a plain old Colt .45 to me. Shouldn’t Captain America at […]

Odds ‘n Ends > Rambeaux edition

ODD: Saw Rambo last weekend. I’ve never seen any of the original three films in their entirety, so it was a little odd that I went to see this one; but it had been far too long since I’ve seen a 1980s action flick. Which is definitely what I got, with about twenty years’ worth […]

Soon after, more glowing reviews of the figure appeared on OAFE, Figures.com and Michael Crawford’s site. I recently spoke to […]

Poe’s Point > Toys and the Chinese New Year

As with many hobbies, the rise of the Internet has allowed the average action figure collector to understand the intricacies of production, sales, and distribution more than ever before. Fans track and discuss case mixes, variant ratios and shipping schedules. They have favorite sculptors and designers. And with projects like the Four Horsemen’s FANtastic Exclusive, […]

New images!

I’d just like to take a moment to recognize the fine new additions to the sidebar menu, Ray Fillet and Maxx Steele. These are of course the work of Red Kryptonite. Thanks RK! Currently working on a pretty cool piece. I hope to get it up in the next day or two, if it comes […]

Heath Ledger

Heath Ledger found dead I don’t know what to say. I keep hoping this is an Andy Kaufman-style prank. This is very sad.
