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.

Six! Arms! 

March Acquisitions Part 2: DISCOUNT RAMPAGE

March was supposed to be the slow month. The calm before the April preorder storm. And those fuckers knew it. Especially the fuckers at Hasbro Pulse, who threw a warehouse sale with 30% off a whole pile of stuff.

Kim-Ra, The Ever-Gromping!

 OK. The last month has been, to put it mildly, a bit bizonkers, and April's not faring much better. April is Las a HUGE month for my pre-orders to start coming due, and since stuff is already wending its way to me, including at least one thing that wasn't supposed to be out until May, I need to clear the decks on March photographing and posting. You don't have to read all this, but like a recipe on the Internet, if you scroll to the end you'll find something fun.

BEST GIFT: Custom Orange Cassidy and Danhausen

Cathy had been wanting to give me my birthday present early for a couple of weeks. And two Wednesdays before the actual day, I got distracted from feeding the cats dinner (shared household task) because I was watching Orange Cassidy and Danhausen win a Tag Team casino Battle Royale to qualify for the four-way at the Revolution pay per view.

FIG PHOTO SERIES: My Magnum Opus Is Complete

Over four months.

The first picture in this series was completed on Jan 2, 2023. The last one was completed on April 6, motivated in part by the desire to finish before the Mighty Morphin’ 30th anniversary special dropped.
