Odds ‘n Ends > September 22, 2011

Toynewsi has links to new pics of the Square Enix Play Arts Kai Batman Arkham Asylum figures. I’m really looking forward to these. A lot. A lot a lot. All I need is a preorder link. You may or may not have heard of the campaign to save the 3 ¾ Venture Bros. toy line. If they don’t hit […]

Odds ‘n Ends > February 1, 2011 (Updated)

I finally remembered to pick a winner in the Parasite/Hawkgirl contest–it was Reverend Ender. Congrats, RE! The blog Collider has hi-res pics of some of the Bandai Thundercats toys.
