Poe’s Point > Did Storage Wars Stage a Big Action Figure Find?

Dr. Mrs. Ghostal and I got into the A&E show Storage Wars a few weeks ago. I’ve never been one for these reality shows – I’ve never watched Antiques Roadshow or Pawn Stars or American Pickers and hell, even that one Toy Hunters episode has been sitting on my DVR, unwatched, since January or whenever it aired.

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.
