Paul’s Peg > A Jedirrific Star Wars Find

toyhuntlogo0001

I’ll let you in on a secret. I’ve almost given up entirely on buying single carded figures in the 3 3/4ths scale. This is due to the fact that I’m poor and can’t fathom paying over seven dollars for one tiny figures. That’s why I’ve been digging these “Blockbuster Value” two packs that I’ve found at Target. How can you go wrong with getting two figures for the price of one? And yet, many of the two packs have been auto passes due to the crappy B side figures. Well, I found this guy the other day and thought that he was a pretty good A side, so good that the B side must be pretty damned bad. I picked him up and turned him around and was amazed to find…

Paul’s Peg > The Friggen Big Frigate

Oh those crazy Lego builders are at it again, this time coming up with a Nebulon-B frigate from Star Wars with a length that measures four feet and six inches.

That’s a pretty amazing accomplishment, if you can actually count this as an accomplishment worthy of praise as opposed to curing cancer or saving a baby from a burning building. I do love that there are even little X-Wings and a Millennium Falcon attached to the frigate.

By the way, I do think I just broke the record for the number or times the word “frigate” has appeared in a post on PoeGhostal.com.

Joes For Tots > The Winners!

JoesforTots2009b

Well, it’s been a crazy action packed adventure this year, but we can now officially announce the winners of the Joes for Tots contest. It was a tough year for everyone, yet overall this year ended up being slightly bigger than last year despite the crappy state of the economy.

The winners were picked via random number selection which was graciously done by Micheal Crawford of mwctoys.com. The winners are:

Joes For Tots > Sponsorship Spotlight: Figure Realm

Okay kids, we’re on to our last Joes For Tots Sponsorship Spotlight before we go ahead with the big winner reveal! Evan Jones is a great toy customizer who generously donated his time and energies on making a custom 6 or 3 3/4th inch figure for the first place winner and since you can check out his work at FigureRealm.com, I thought that we could check them out.

Paul’s Peg > The New AT-AT is Coming…?

After the success of the big Millennium Falcon ’08 there’s been lots of speculation on what would be the next revamped old school Star Wars vehicle. Lots of Star Wars collecting nerds have been praying to the Maker for a larger scaled AT-AT. Well, it looks like it might be one step closer to reality. Here’s what could be a leaked “big reveal” of an enormous AT-AT.

Joes For Tots > Sponsorship Spotlight: Luke’s Toy Store

Well the time frame for entering Joes for Tots is now over, but that doesn’t mean that we’re all done with checking out what the sponsors are up to. Today we’re checking out Luke’s Toy Store, the awesome sponsor that donated 9 Mini-Mates gift sets from 24, Back to the Future, and The Spirit. Let’s check ’em out!

Paul’s Peg > New Joe Card Art?

How’s this for total speculation? Here’s some possible new G.I. Joe card art that surfaced on 4chan.

Now the only reason I’m posting this here is that I would totally dig this art. I’m guessing that it’s probably a fake, but who knows? I really would love to see the return of a more classic card out, since I’ve never liked the Rise of Cobra stuff. I don’t expect a return to the look of the 25th anniversary style, but dang it all, I miss it. This is a nice middle ground that might catch my eye a bit more as I’m looking for toys I can’t afford. What do kids think?

Joes For Tots > Sponsorship Spotlight: Articulated Discussion

Banner2

Yeah, I know Christmas is over. There are still awesomeness to be had with our sponsors though and believe it or not, Toys For Tots still needs help. Today’s Sponsorship Spotlight is a bit different considering our sponsor today is not a store, rather its a super awesome blog. Maybe not *as* super awesome as PoeGhostal.com, but pretty super awesome in it’s own right.

I started reading Articulated Discussion since almost its inception and I’ve been hooked ever since. That’s why I’m happy that AD decided to sponsor the Joes For Tots contest with the addition of a Back to the Future electronic DeLorean. What else can you expect from them? Hit the more tag to find out!

Joes for Tots > More Cool Peeps

Joes for Tots entries are still coming in, but if you haven’t donated yet there is still plenty of time to help out. While many places are closed for actual toy donations, you can still donate even a small amount online. Aside from helping someone out and possibly getting a nice bonus, remember Poe offered up a sweet unmasked Dark Knight figure as well. Remember, you have until the 31st of December to submit your entry!

Anyway, I thought I’d share a few more of the photo entries I’ve received. This time the theme is pulling some of the entries that qualify as, “The Ladies of Joes For Tots.”

It’s still not too late to enter Joes For Tots and you don’t want to miss out because cool sponsors like 80sTees.com and their awesome gift cards are hard to pass up. Seriously, they have some cool shirts. Let’s check some out!
