Iron Man 3: Well Iron Man 3 is coming out and… I don’t know if I’ll see it in a theater. I don’t know why, but I’m just not that into Iron Man movies. I didn’t see 2 until it was on Netflix Instant last year. I guess it doesn’t help that [...]
The 2013 International G.I. Joe Convention sure had one thing going for it… Lot’s of sweet ass stuff to buy! I took pictures of some of the bizarre, ultra rare, and just plain cool stuff I saw available at the dealer booths to share with you all. (Click on the images to supersize them.)
The most bad ass of the Transformers.

Out of the mind of the internet, Mechawhales was born! Whales with ESP that don mechanized suits of armor and battle it out. Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water… whales start wearing robot suits.
Not only is the adult collectible toy only 45 bucks (which isn’t that [...]
Well, this was an unexpected find and purchase. Just yesterday my girlfriend let me know that a Marshall’s by me was closing and they were having 20% clearance off of everything. Hoping to pick up some new shoes (they didn’t have anything good), I wandered over to the toy aisle. Almost buried [...]
