Revoltech Transformers – Mirage

As I explained in an earlier post, I wanted to make additional characters in a line of highly articulated, non-Transforming figures that died well before it’s time.  Autobot Mirage, everyone’s favorite blue F1 car, was my second figure. Collecting is half the Battle!

G.I. Joe – Mega Bloks: Cobra – The Enemy

Continuing the spotlight on custom Mega Bloks GI Joe figures, today I’m posting the adversaries of the Joe team, the ruthless terrorist organization: Cobra.  This group had it’s good and bad points while making them.  The designs were simpler, and making repeats of the nameless/faceless troopers require less thought.  However, it got a little monotonous…

G.I. Joe – Mega Bloks: The Joe Team

A few years ago when Hasbro announced that they were going to get into the brick business (presumably to get a share of that sweet Lego revenue), we all rejoiced that we might get some really cool small-scale Joe figures.  Instead, we got “Kre-O”, a blatant ripoff of cute little Lego minifigures and grossly under-scaled…

Mixel Madness – Stop Action

Revoltech Transformers – Sideswipe

In the mid-2000’s, Japanese toy company Kaiyodo released a series of highly articulated, non-transforming 4.5″ figures based on some G1 Transformers characters.  Optimus Prime, Ultra Magnus (a white Prime repaint), Megatron, Starscream, and Hotrod were the only characters released before Kaiyodo moved on to different scales, movie figures, etc., and left the G1 fans wanting…

Adventures of Stan: Car Salesperson

In addition to every major toy franchise of the 80’s, I also have amassed quite a collection of 1:18 (G.I.Joe-scale) diecast cars.  That gave me the idea that I should take pics of them together, and the idea of making a little comics out of it wasn’t a big stretch.  Thus the “Adventures of Stan:…
