Odds ‘n Ends > February 9, 2011

  • Don’t forget, the Sword of Ages goes back on sale today at 1pm at Poe Ghostal’s Points of Acquisition. There is also a very, very small number of Dread Axes of Darkness.
  • Michael Crawford has released the results for the Poppies–here are the Judges’ Picks, and here are the People’s  Picks.
  • NECA posted some very interesting pre-Toy Fair tidbits on their Twitter feed yesterday. The Predator 2 and Duke Nukem stuff sounds great.
  • It was just about ten years ago that I helped originate “Armchair Toy Fair Coverage” at OAFE. And now, finally, my coverage shall be armchair no longer. I’m looking into some simple-but-useful site updates to make sure you get your news ASAP.
  • Blogger The Fight Nerd sent along this review of the Superman vs. Muhammad Ali statue. It gives a great rundown of this particular moment in comic book history, and he even asked some UFC and Strikeforce fighters who they thought would win the match.
  • PGPoA was featured in a list of the “Best 30 Action Figure Blogs” alongside many other familiar sites.

  • Congrats making that top 30 list, but when was that site made? 1998?

    Dread Axe of Darkness!!! So excited!!!1!

  • @Poe:

    I've seen my site in those listings lately too, but for some reason, I feel that it's auto-generated or something. Isn't this the 3rd time "top sites" have been published lately w/ the exact same results? Why am I so cynical about it? Ha.

  • @Justin – Did you get an email from them? I did and even it read a bit odd.

    Oh well, screw it! I'm happy to be in good company on there. 🙂

  • I didn't plug their website or return their last couple emails and I got removed from this latest batch of "top sites" so I'm not sure if it's just a spam thing or not, to be honest.

    I suspect someone is trying to boost the links to the guidetoartschools website, but I could be wrong.

  • Don't know if anyone cares, but Icon Heroes has some sweet pics up of their new Thundercats stactions. They've switched to PVC and lowered the price to $30 USD.
