Name That…Coat

I own three winter coats. Two are leather and the zippers are jammed. The other has buttons. One of the buttons came off this week.

Name That…Red Rag

I kind of prefer red shop rags. They don’t look as dirty as white ones with grease on them.

Ned Stark (GoT Mystery Mini)

  I’m one of those people who didn’t read the books before watching Game of Thrones on HBO. The amount of promotional images and media centered around Ned Stark certainly gave the impression that Ned Stark was going to be the main protagonist of the story. The end of season one had a big twist […]

Deadpool Should be rated…?

I’ve been laughing at all the memes going around about folks wanting Deadpool to have a PG-13 version. I was hanging in there with the comics crowd who were applauding the decision to make it rated R. I get it. They want violence. They want swearing. They want their hero to be the deadly smart […]

Shaggydog (GoT Mystery Mini)

I have became hopelessly addicted to Game of Thrones Mystery Minis from Funko. Blind boxes normally aren’t my thing, but this one really grabbed hold. Today, I’m looking at Shaggydog. Who is Shaggydog you say? Shaggydog is Rickon Stark’s direwolf. The youngest of the Stark clan named his black canine, so it shouldn’t surprise us […]

Kotobukiya ArtFX Super Powers Batman

Alright. I don’t buy statues. I have a couple of things in my collection that might be termed statues, but I didn’t think about them that way when I bought them. However, when Scott recently reviewed the Kotobukiya ArtFX Super Powers Superman, Flash and Green Lantern on the Action Figure Blues Podcast. I found my […]

Has Star Wars Ruined Star Wars For Me?

I had tweeted a reply to the Ginger Prince regarding Star Wars: The Force Awakens the other day. And I realized a couple of things. (If you don’t follow him, @TGP73 is a great gentleman fan of the Star Wars world and a HUGE Admiral Ackbar Fan.) The first thing I realized was I’m just […]

Engineernerd Builds a Gundam Kit Part 2

So my Gunpla kit arrived from Amazon fairly quickly. Oddly, the outside of the box was not shrink wrapped. Everything inside was in a a couple of plastic bags and looked intact. The instructions were at the bottom of the box. I was immediately struck with the number of parts. And wondered what I had […]
