For some reason, probably too many Dos Equis, I hear Pornstache with the voice of actor Jonathan Goldsmith, “The Most Interesting Man in the World.” Oddly, Hang ’em High is on as I type this, and he was in that for a scene or two. The mask is the same one 339/1 was selling back […]
A month long Bad Day? Yeah, I’ve had that before, too. Usually ended with a new cellmate–I mean, um, roommate–for me as well. Next time, we get to see a little background of the man, the myth, the legend: Pornstache.
I might’ve mentioned him before, but that Wal-Mart exclusive Marvel Universe Savage Frost Giant (and Loki) is pretty sweet. The only downside is, get one and you may very well want another…and there’s every possibility that the distribution is going to be an utter crapshoot on him. Good luck!
Bill’s bad day is going to go on for a while, but this seemed like a good way to catch up with the cast, since we’ll be introducing a new cast member or two later. The Sectaurs in this one are a recent eBay purchase, during a local toy drought: I never had them as […]
Ah, Vikor: This seems like a good use of a $30 figure. It was that, or freeze him in a block of ice to wake up in the future… Before working on this one, I re-read a ton of old Conan comics, mostly Savage Sword of Conan, and watched Conan the Barbarian again. The prophecy […]
A sad day, today. Or rather, a month and a half or so ago, when I sent Poe 339/1 back. I’ll miss the ugly Bastard; but we’ve got some more figures from around the same era that will be showing up later.
BBC America ran Excalibur quite a few times a couple months back, which led to me having to eBay this Merlin figure, from Lady Pendragon. I know there was a figure for her as well, based on the 90’s Rob Liefeld comic; but I couldn’t tell you if they were any good. (Yes, I can: […]
There was a throwaway line in an old ToyFare issue, where someone mishears the description of Man-E-Faces as “attorney and actor,” and for some weird reason, that’s how I think of him now. Since I’m not a big MOTUC collector, I didn’t get the Palace Guard two-pack, although they look cool. So, the bazaar has […]
Are you the type of collector that keeps various lines displayed separately, like a little kid that won’t let his gravy touch his corn on his plate? An odd metaphor, since I do eat like that; but my toy shelves are one big mixer. I love doing strips with as many figures as I can […]
Most poison doesn’t work that way: eating a little every day doesn’t build up your immunity, it just lodges in your liver or whatever until it kills you. Well, kills you, Conan’s made of sterner stuff than that. I think I’ve eaten veal twice in my life, and it might be cruel and inhumane and […]
