Gundam Build Fighters

  Okay, I’ll probably loose some geek cred for this one, but I’m not a huge anime fan. I will even say that at one time I didn’t realize there was difference between the Gundam and Macross worlds. For years, I never delved into either properly. When I have tried an anime here and there […]

Jon Snow (Mystery Mini)

Poor Jon Snow. I always figured he was destined for bigger things. He’s definitely a fan loved character.
