I’ve been remiss in mentioning a couple of gigs I had recently. Topless Robot contacted me to put together a list of the best action figures of 2013:

TR’s Top 10 Action Figures of 2013

I always have a hard time putting together this kind of list because I really only collect a few lines (seriously, I think a lot of you would be surprised by how few figures I actually own – it’s a lot compared to a layman, but on the small side compared to your average collector). So this time I solicited some help, and the comments seem fairly positive about my choices. One thing to mention is I did try to enter a last-minute draft update where I swapped out Springer for Masterpiece Soundwave, but somehow it didn’t make the cut when the list went live.

I also did the whole best-toys-of-the-year thing on a podcast with OAFE.net, along with my old OAFE-mates Rustin Parr, yo go re and Shocka. You can listen to that here.
