Lego Astronaut

In the late 70’s, Star Wars and NASA had cemented interest in space exploration for a generation. It is no surprise that one of the first Lego series to have Minifigures was Space. It’s also not a surprise that those figures remain as popular as the City series. Instead of releasing a plain Spaceman figure in […]

A coworker’s son has a lizard. I sometime go to the pet store when they buy crickets for it.

This character looks ripped above the waist. He needs to work those legs, though.

I love the Lego mini figures of people in crazy suits. Chicken suit dude, Hot Dog Guy, Panda Dude, Bumblebee Girl, Clarence Beeks. Those are the ones I seek out first. Anything else is gravy. So you know when I saw the new series, I’d have to look for the Shark Suit guy. Now I […]

This may look like the Emperor from Star Wars. It’s not. I promise you.

Calibos

I realize the original Clash of the Titans film, may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I love Ray Harryhausen’s stop motion stuff. As a kid I was fascinated but how you animate things like mythological creatures. Calibos was one of those creatures in the film. Well, sort of. He was a man deformed […]

Walking Dead Hospital Doors

I’ve been curious about the Walking Dead building set from McFarlane for a while now. I tried to get one of the figure packs at Wal-Mart recently, and well, was denied. (Documented in an AFB Podcast Red Card!) So when I saw the Hospital Door set, my curiosity finally met a price point I could […]

Jamie Lannister (GoT Mystery Mini)

Warning in advance. The Jamie Lannister Mystery Mini from Funko’s Game of Thrones series 2 line has some later season spoilers. Nothing major, but if you are in season 1 or 2 in viewing, proceed at your own risk. When he starts, Jamie Lannister is a but of a douche. I hated him and was […]

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 […]
