FIG PHOTO: “Bro time!”

OK! This is the last thing I have ready to go for the time being. Nothing new coming in the door for a bit, and it’s gonna be about a week before I’m in a position to start any new pics. I do have a project in progress, but it’s stupd complicated and stupid fussy and is producing something to be used in other pics down the line. So let’s go out on a deeply ridiculous note.

Monday, July 8, 2024



Been a long road. Seventeen wrestling figures acquired during June. Technically a five week period starting the last week of May, but that was just one guy and it’s June enough. And we end with the final release, the figure that kept my four-figure preorder waiting until mid-June, the best smile in the biz, the tightest tits in the game, “All Ego” Ethan Page.

Sunday, July 7, 2024


Almost done! One more acquisition post and one more fig photo post and then I’m caught up, with time to spare before a Gamestop preorder hits my stoop. Wheeler Yuta!

JUNE WAs wRESTLING MONTH: Honoring The House

The last shipment of June was an older batch of orders/preorders from ringside, including, finally, Buddy Matthews and Brody King.

FIGURE PHOTO: “Danhausen And The Danhausens”

 So, I have four Danhausen figures. Three of these Danhausen figures have capes. To me, this added up to 60’s singing group, because, well, that’s how my brain works. And so, the work began.

FIG PHOTO: “Sea Men” or “High Three!”

Had two underwater guys, wanted to see if I could pose them swimming at each other. Turns out I could!

Just a bit of fun with tridents. Are they fighting each other? Are they smacking tridents for fun? Is it a weird sex thing? I leave it to you, the consumer of art!

JUNE PILE OF LOOT FINALE: Super Action Stuff Effects


Since it’s the end of June, I should probably post the last thing from the June Pile of Loot, which took me a while to be able to photograph. It’s an accessory pack from Super Action Stuff that went on sale in a BigBadToyStore /daily Deal so I got it for cheap. Super Action Stuff are the people that made those arcade machines full of fun accessories I got earlier this year.

Anyway, the guns, swords, knives, and head are all from my Joe Classified accessories bag, but everything else - all the firing effects, the blood swipes, the blood splatter, the rocket, the lightning, etc. are what came with the pack.

A lot of the fire effects have holes and pegs and such but I don’t know what thye’re supposed to be sized for. Certainly nothing Classified. But that’s what blue-tac is for. Not sure I’ll ever need the ricochet effects, but again, it was on a good sale, and most of it should come in handy at some point.

As or the rest of june? Four wrestlers, five impulse non-wrestler purchases, and three things I did just for fun. I mean, I do all of this for fun, but you know. Specific ideas for photos versus “look what I just opened up” pics.

Saturday, June 29, 2024


 Fun fact. After compliting a bunch of photo editing this morning, I have 13 pictures after this one to post to get caught up with my June purchases and projects. WHEEE! Anyway, Claudio!

FIG PHOTO: “we Wrestleternia!”

 Some more fun with the Masters of the Universe figures and my grotty old ring background. This is another one I’d like to redo once I set the ring up again and finish another project I’ve been procrastinating on HARD.

Anyway, w’ve got Sekeletor and Mer-Man vs. New Day and Cringer, with Adam efereeing.

Got figs 14, 15, 16, and 17 in the mail today, so Wrestling Month is… almost over? Here’s some classic flavor.

JUNE IS WRESTLING MONTH: Ring Of Honor Danhausen


OK, I didn’t have time to set up The Arena for this, which is a shame, , and all my old arena pics are in different software, so you’ll have to settle for this kludge.

The 2024 Grand Rewiring


Had to replace the OLED TV because of six or seven years worth of burn-in. Notice the before and after pics of the screens above. Which meant a GRAND REWIRING.

JUNE IS WRESTLING MONTH: As Close As I’ll Get To A ‘Holy Grail’

A lot of toy collectors have “holy grails”, items they’ve been searching for forever and want more than life itself. I don’t really have that.

JUNE IS WRESTLING MONTH: Asuka, Charlotte, Sasha


June continues to be busy, and continues as I build out the collection of WWE women’s wrestlers with a couple of Ultimates and an eBay snag.

PHOTO: Life Imitating Art Imitating Life

So last weekend, a good friend took my brother and I to Starcade in St. Paul, a giant space full of classic arcade games set to free play with a pay-once unlimited play setup. And it was a goddamned blast and you’re damn right I’ll be back.

Tuesday, June 4, 2024


June is shaping up to be a truly decadent month when it comes to toys, for a bunch of reasons, but also it’s turning into a VERY wrestling-heavy month, both in-hand and in the near future.

PREORDER ACQUIRED: Animated Spider-Man Dr. Strange and Morbius


Much like being a living vampire, deciding to be all-in on the Marvel Legends Spider-Man Animated VHS 2-packs is a gift… and a curse.

FIG PHOTO: Pumpkin Squad! (In Color)

The inspiration for this photo was just the realization that my collection contains a disproportionate number of pumpkin heads.

LONG STORY SURPRISE: Mutt/Junkyard, Imperial Guard #2

 So, yeah, long story involving someone else’s packages going missing for a month and then showing up randomly post-replacement means bonus toys!

FIG PHOTO: “Gettin’ Handsy” a.k.a. “The Heaviest Petting”

 First, I want you to know that it wasn’t my intent, but I do recognize this is the most Rule 34 / “This is definitely someone else’s fetish” toy pic I’ve ever done. I just thought it was funny.

I am Not Technically A Goro Bro


I understand that the rules dictate that the Goro Bros must purchase an original Mortal Kombat 1 Storm Collectibles Gotor, and ideallhy they must also be.a professional wrestler goaded into purchasing it at it’s ridiculous secondary market price by peer pressure. But I’m at least a Goro Second cousin now.
