Custom Action Figures

I want to talk a little bit about action figures once more as I’m an avid collector of them. They’re fun to display, fun to collect, and certainly fun to play with your kids with… unless they’re the $30+ ones with fragile parts… then yeah, just the first two! But what about characters that don’t have action figures, either because they’re just not popular … Read More Custom Action Figures

Action Figure Review: The Good, The Bad…

Action Figure Collection Woes >:(

  So as most everyone knows… I’m huge into action figure collecting. There are two big ones I’m waiting for. The first and perhaps most important is a commissioned one-of-a-kind action figure. See I love Skyrim… but let’s face it, the figures that came out from the game kinda sucked! All they had was a Daedric lord and a fairly generic Dragonborn.

Comic Collecting…

  So for the longest time now, my comic book collecting has been fairly minimal. Since I cancelled all of my Marvel pulls and have restricted myself to Teen Titans, Lady Mechanika and a few indie titles, my monthly box at The Hall of Comics has been kind of bare. That being said, every now and then, I do get a diamond or two… … Read More Comic Collecting…

White Widow, Initial Impressions #WhiteWidow #Comics #Superheroes #Indie

So I’ve recently picked up a new book that I just stumbled on at a comic auction for $8… and it was money well spent, but I’ll get into that. The book title is White Widow.
