Welcome to the new PoeGhostal.com! (also: a contest!)


It’s been a long time coming, but at last, the new PGPoA has arrived. As you can see, it’s a pretty significant aesthetic change. But webmaster OB1 and I wanted to make the site a bit more modular, allowing me to make easy changes when necessary, so there are some changes behind the hood that you may not notice, but will be making your browsing experience even better.

And of course, there are some changes you will notice, like the use of IntenseDebate for comments. This is something we’re trying out; if everyone decides they hate it, we could switch back to the classic system at a later time. So comments are welcome.

One thing to mention: the old Poester Gallery is gone (technically I haven’t taken it down yet, but it will go away soon), but it will be replaced by a simpler forum that will be more incorporated into the site itself. That’ll be coming soon, but I still have some fiddling to do with that.

I’d like to give HUGE thanks to OB1 and Mecha-Shiva for all their hard work on bringing this together. The site’s new look was Mecha-Shiva’s idea and he drew the art, and of course OB1 made it all happen (including that awesome peg-hook search box).

OK, now on to the fun stuff–a contest! The guys at Spy Monkey Creations were kind enough to create a special variant of the Hammer of Chalybeous, which I’m calling The Poehammer! (Tolkien nerds may get the reference; Halo nerds, your reference is actually a reference to Tolkien.)

Cast in black with blue and red highlights, the Poehammer’s colors reflect those of the new PGPoA design.

I have three Poehammers to give away. Here’s how to win one:

  • In the comments below, briefly describe one of your favorite posts from the last three-and-a-half years of PGPoA, and why. It can be a review, an interview, an Odds ‘n End, a news article, anything. You don’t have to get creative, and I won’t know if you surf to the Reviews page and choose one at random.
  • I’ll pick three winners at random from the replies. One entry per person, please.

Now, on a more personal note: I know I’ve been rather remiss lately in updating this blog. A lot has been going on in my life, but the truth is I also got a little burnt out; it happens. But moving forward, you should see plenty of new content. So sit back and enjoy the new Poe Ghostal’s Points of Articulation!

    I like the Wun-Dar review best. It was pretty cool to see the history behind him.

  2. My favorite post was the interview with me, because I got to write my own clip-n-save filecard. Man, that was fun. I put in so many references to other real Joe and Cobra filecards that reading it still makes me giggle.

    Love the new site!

    Favorite: Onan the Barbarian Cartoon.

    AWEsOme new look to the site! I like it a LOT! =)

    When will you be back on Roast Gooble Jason? (though they haven’t been posting a new episode as of late… we miss you Emiliano!)

    My favorite review was way back when, for the Master Sword of Empyrean and the Witching Axe! Just seeing the pictures (especially the one with Zodac holdind the sword and staff!)… I was immediately hooked on Spy Monkey Creations and the Poe Ghostal site! Which are now both “favorites” on my Facebook app!

    I was a little late coming on to the scene with Matty’s Classics, but was instanly on-board when I was made aware of it! Grew up with the original toys and was glued to the TV after school for the He-man and She-ra Power Hour! So stumbling onto Poe Ghostal and being introduced to Jeremy and his creations was a double whamie for me and I have been a fan of both ever since!!

    I have to say, I still love the bio discussions on this site! It keeps me coming back for MORE This is the best place to hear what other fans are feeling about this “new bio story” that they are weaving together! ^~^

    Thanks for everything Poe Ghostal!!

    Gratz on the new look!

    My favorite was actually your recent one on The Tick figure from Indie Spotlight. I was so impressed by it, that I actually tracked one down for myself!

    Thanks PG!

  6. There have been a great many posts I've really enjoyed, I don't know if I could say which is a favorite. I really benefited from the Hellboy reviews, some of the MOTUC posts helped me get into that line, DCUC reviews were great. Let's go with the Scareglow review.

  7. Bonehead

    Congrats on the site! Looks great.

    My favorite article was your Mezco Hellboy reviews. It was the first time I visited the site and I really enjoyed the review.

    You gave the perfect information on the figure plus added in some personal info that made the review entertaining and informative. It wasn't at all "robotic" like some reviews.
