The New Password Makes Me Feel Old, Tired, And Cranky

More mugging than central Park in the 70’s.

It doesn’t come out much on the Internet, if at all, but I love a good game show. I even love a pretty good game show. I grew up during Peak Game Show in the late 70’s and early 80’s, and I’ve watched over the decades as game shows have come in and out of fashion, but very few new true greats emerged.

SPOILER-FREE: Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse


Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse has two unavoidable flaws.

THE TOYS OF SPRING: Batman ‘66 Haul


Stately as fuuuuuck!

OK, so it’s been like six weeks, because things have been non-conducive to photographing, compositing, and posting. If you know why you know why, and if you you don’t you needn’t concern yourselves. 

Also, while I did have a tone of shit show up in April, and some more in May, it all showed up in like the last week of the month. So it was May before I got around to shooting it, and then suddenly it was June and a bunch of other shit showed up last week of May and I had to clear THAT off the boards to make way for June’s preorders all shipping in the first week.

So let’s start with the MOST FUN. The vast array of Batman ‘66 stuff that finally shipped from Target, the most important of which is Stately Wayne Manor, which, as Batman 66 playsets go, really goes above and beyond.

FIG PHOTO: Animal Friends?

Look, I've been semi-unintentionally ending up with a lot of animal toys lately. Shoulda threw my Ms. Lion(s) in there too.

March Acquisitions Part 4: Dungeons, Dragons, and Opportunistic Snakes

Back in... January? January, when Hasbro released the Target-exclusive figures based on the old, tacky Dungeons and Dragons cartoon, I was intrigued. Then I saw reviews, and decided that these were not full price purchases. Weird articulation and just a general "you're charging $25 a pop for WHAT now?" vibe.
