Odds ‘n Ends > Two-Year Anniversary Edition


  • Happy anniversary to me! Today marks the two-year anniversary of PGPoA, and I decided to splurge on some new graphics. Poester MechaShiva provided all the new artwork around the site. I decided it was time to update Poe’s outdated trenchcoat-and-glasses look to MechaShiva’s more exciting MOTUC-style Poe. At the same time, he also updated a lot of our existing artwork. And fear not, it was all done with Red Kryptonite’s blessing–her artwork is wonderful, but she’s a bit busy these days now that she’s going to be a published novelist. As always, a big thank-you to OB1 as well for implementing the new graphics.
  • I’m a bit surprised by the battle going on in the sidebar poll. New Adventures Skeletor? I thought BA Skeletor and IA He-Man would be way ahead of the others. Given NA’s lack of popularity, to those of you who voted for him I ask, what’s the appeal? Not judging, just wondering.
  • Can someone clarify for me what the “cool” Power Rangers that Bandai is doing are? Some sort of rare variants, I think? They’re supposed to be a sort of MMPR equivalent of Marvel Legends. What about those $16 “Super Legends” I see at TRU? Are those the same thing, or something else? Moreover, how many of you who visit my site are actually young enough to have been into MMPR?
  • I got all my Christmas figures out today. Most of them are from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, but others include Ralphie from A Christmas Story, the Winter Warlock from Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town, Santa Jack and some elves from NECA’s Nightmare Before Christmas, and the Snowman from McFarlane’s Twisted Xmas. Anyone else put out a Christmas figure display ever year? (Dwaltrip, I know you do.)

Mattel Answers for December 1


  1. Happy anniversary a few days late!

  2. Haha… yeah, I think that was the guy. I think he said he sold off his entire collection and was collecting solely DCUC or something and then fumed about it because it was the only line he was collecting.

  3. Griffin

    @Poe- Was that the guy who said he was quitting DCUC, and that this was a harbinger of doom for the line, because every line he quits dies?

  4. I've had my eye on that 6" scale Megazord since it came out. I think its around $10 or $11, I just haven't brought myself to pick it up. As of right now Green Ranger and Lord Zedd are in the toy box, so I'm not sure how much I really need/want it.

  5. Mark

    @PrfktTear: Oh well maybe they'll re-issue it. By the way happy anniversary Poe.

  6. How come there were never any National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation figures? Clark Griswald with a ball of Christmas lights, deflated turkey, electrocuted cat, and the model of his pool. The house could be a play set!

    I triple-dog-dare someone out there to make a gingerbread house out of the Griswald's home.

  7. Oh, and why I meant to post in the first place – happy anniversary, Poe!

  8. I always have a constant display of Xmas toys in the regular display, nothing extra at the holiday time. I do go seriously Griswald on the outside of the house though – there's eight deer, three bears, two penguins, a snowman/countdown clock, two large blue stars, two blue trees…and 21 strands of icicle lights, 300 lights each. Hey, I love xmas!

  9. Ouch! Its hard to say what to sell/keep. I don't know whats worse, sellers remorse or buyers regret? If I had a never ending supply of money I would definitely buy a Mega/Dragon Zord…
