FIG PHOTO: The Egghead Club

So, as I just mentioned, I had  a second reason for wanting Marvel Legends’ Egghead. It’s because I also had DC’s Egghead, specifically, Vincent Price Egghead from Batman ‘66. And two Eggheads means fun, and for me, fun means spending a not insignificant chunk of my Saturday trying to stop the photo site I got this free cafe image from to stop fucking e-mailing me. Oh, and also making this picture.

The egg cups on the table were Cathy’s idea, and boy is Google’s algorithm gonna have a fun time making head or tails of THAT search.

But this image was just the setup. The beginning of the story. Exposition, if you will. I had a more intricate narrative in mind, a deeper story to tel, and for that, I had to look to the Marvel Legends Fantastic Four wave:

Was it villainy? Snobbishness? The fact that Reed Richards’ head wasn’t currently shaped like an egg, even though it could be?  We may never know. Like all great art, the perspective of those viewing it is what matters.

SLOW MONTH: Marvel’s Egghead

The last two weeks have been very calm before the storm, while I wait for the slate of August preorders (currently at 8 figs assuming nothing else ships early) and try to beat Synapse. 

This was an online impulse buy that ended up taking forever to get to ,e because when I got around to pulling the trigger once I had enough preorders for free shipping, it was backordered. It’s Egghead, from the Marvel Legends Quantumania wave. 

Egghead is a weird deep cut Marvel villain that I mostly know from Avengers cartoon, and I mostly got him because he’s a weird deep cut and for another reason I’m working on. I didn’t care about the rest of the wave because I already have perfectly fine Ant Man and Wasp figures, and MCU Kang is now… problematic. 

He came with the big torso of the Giant Cassie Lang build a figure, which means he came with nothing but his gun, but otherwise he’s a solid, very middle of the road Legends figure.

Synapse (PSVR2)


Synapse is the first PSVR2 game to dent my face and drain my controller batteries.

I need to stress the importance of one thing right off the bat.CLEARANCE DOESN’T COUNT. Any collecting rules, self-imposed restrictions, or past statements are rendered completely invalid if the price point gets low enough.
