Minimate Imhotep

Minimate Imhotep

My love of Mummy action figures and movies has been well documented. So, it should come as no surprise, I snatched up the newest Minimate version of Imhotep as soon as I saw him dangling from a peg. I know there are a couple versions of this guy out there. This one appealed to me […]

Name That…Trainformer

No, it’s not a Transformer. It’s my shameless attempt to draw people into the Name That Game.

Mega Cannon Spider-Man

Mega Cannon Spider-Man

The character is relatively prominent because he is the commander of the clones serving under Jedi Master Ploo Koon, a character that is voiced by none other than TV series producer/director Dave Filoni.

2012 Year in Review – Engineernerd

2012 Year in Review – Engineernerd

2012 in collecting, to me, at least, it reminded me of what is called a rebuilding year in sports terminology. There was some good, some bad, and some just meh. Actually, lot of meh. Mattel still doesn’t seem to understand that we would buy decent DC toys if they would put them out there at […]
