Ewok 2 Pack (Paploo & Nho’Apakk)

It amazes he me how many people online profess hatred for the Ewoks in “Return of the Jedi.” You would think if that many folks despised them, they would be peg warming every time they released a new one.  But they don’t. People snag the little critters when they see them. I’ve said it before, […]

Alpha Flight Desktop Wallpaper

I had started reading Alpha Flight about halfway through the first series. At that point, Marvel decided to take the book subscription only or comic shop distributed. Without a comic shop in my hometown, I ended up not getting anymore of them. When ToyBiz brought out their Alpha Flight 2-packs, I couldn’t resist this one. […]

The Simpsons Bunch Desktop Wallpaper

For the toy fans out there, here’s a desktop wallpaper that combines two of the most popular sitcom families, the Bradys and the Simpsons. Yeah, there was a couch gag that ended with this image with different characters. I didn’t know that until after I made it. (Click the image for the full wallpaper size.)

Snake Eyes (Paris Pursuit)

Snake Eyes (Paris Pursuit) is arguably among the coolest figures from the movie line, even though if it’s not the most pose-able of the bunch, and it succeeds in providing a refreshing new look for the character.

Errex Score: 95/100

I Feel Like Chicken Tonight

Okay. Thanksgiving is Turkey Time. I know. But, I didn’t have a turkey accessory and this was pretty close.

Princess Leia (Jabba’s Prisoner)

Back in 1997, when the first “Slave Girl” or “Dancing Girl” Leia came out, it was a figure that I thought would never get made. However, this year’s “Legacy” series from Hasbro has brought another new version of this figure. Obviously, this version of Leia is popular with the fanboys. It’s tough as nails Princess […]

Conrad “Duke” Hauser (Reactive Impact Armor)

After getting the previous version of Duke (the Desert Ambush version), I was not too interested on picking up this one too, but after seeing it in person, I decided to take the plunge and get it.

Flowers for Who? (Part 3)

Bet you thought I couldn’t come up with another flower accessory did you? Well, I did. I’d rate this one “Moderate” difficulty.

Riese The Series – Episode 1

I found out about “Riese” awhile back on Twitter. The allure of a Steampunk series was a huge draw to me . You may have noticed the banners on the site for the series over the past month or so. Let’s just say my interest was piqued. The first episode of this web series has […]

Flowers for Who? (Part 2)

Since last weeks flowers turned out to be the easiest “Name That…” yet, I thought we’d continue the flower theme this week. I’m guessing this one will be a bit harder.

Cobra Elite Viper

As of this writing, I haven’t watched “GI Joe: Rise of Cobra” yet. I will, I just haven’t had a chance yet. Overall, the movie line of GI Joe figures has grown on me. However, the nearest Wal-Mart reduced their prices on the standard figures to $6. That makes me like them a whole lot […]

Why The New “V” Doesn’t Work for This Nerd

I’ll be up front with you. I didn’t really watch the original mini series or full season runs of the original “V.” I can’t tell you why, it seems like something my young mind would have liked at the time. I remember watching a few of them, but never really following it. So I think, […]

“The Abominable Dr. Phibes” Film Review

I was really excited to this film turn up on Turner Classics this past weekend for Halloween.  It’s been at least a decade since I last saw it on television. Not that it hasn’t been on necessarily, but with the channel guides it’s a lot easier to find when some of the more obscure films […]
