    1:12 Action Force Kickstarter

    I'm mildly curious about this. I've wanted 6" Joes for years, but I'm not sure how these folks are using Action Force ™ without being sued into oblivion by Hasbro/Palitoy. These guys seem to have some up with their own mythology that somewhat parallels the Joe mythos. I don't think it'll...

    Joy Toy 1:18 Russian SSO Special Team Figures

    Forgive me if these have been posted elsewhere. I would love to add some of these to my 1:18 OPFOR. Unfortunately, I'm too cheap to drop $28 on rando 4" figures. But they're certainly cool, and they appeal to me more than ARW figures. Maybe they'll go on sale eventually (yeah, right...)...

    Joecon 2018

    I keep getting emails about signing up for this con. Two things strike me: 1) They claim this is going to be the final one, so I guess it's getting absorbed by the mothership into "hascon" going forward? 2) It's taking place an hour and a half from my house, and I still can't get motivated...

    Joe Reboot

    Well, this sounds... different. I'm not going to criticize until I see it, but it certainly smells like we are far from their target audience at this point. They lost me with "millennial"...

    R/C vehicle assiatance

    I know there are some R/C pros around here, and I need some advice. I've got a son who is turning 10 next month, and he would like an R/C car for his birthday. I have no clue what to buy. What's the best bang-for-the-buck? Brand? Scale? Durability? Battery life? I don't want to break...

    Dye questions

    I know this is probably a stupid question, but is there anything special to know about dyeing action figures? Particular brands of dye? Special techniques? Cautionary tales? Is it as simple as buying some RIT and following the instructions?

    Army Alphas 6"

    Anyone interested in these? I have to admit, they are sparking my interest. Not much military 6" to go with all the Marvel Legends, DCUC, and MOTU figures. It feels like these have a lot of potential if they meet the minimum goal...

    Election day...

    Ok, so I'm reading up on what each of the candidates really stand for, you know, like a good little member of a democracy. And I find myself falling on the side of the democrats on far too many issues for my liking. I'm still fiscally conservative... but when it comes to social and...

    Where are Jesse and Al?!

    With today's shooting of the reporter/cameraman, we have a twist of fate where the guy who is both black AND gay murders in cold blood the straight white people. Where is the outrage? Where are the protesters? Where is the #straightwhitepeoplematter movement? Why is this not a hate...

    Lego Stop-Motion

    My son (age 8) spent considerable time making a stop-motion animation "movie" this summer. Actually, he wanted to go to stop-motion camp (yes, it exists), and I explained that we could do that better at home (you know, because the idea of melding photography and expensive software I don't know...

    Hope you aren't a Bandai fan...

    Now distributed by Diamond. They are the "middle man" your father warned you about. Incompetent and greedy. Don't expect to get anything from Bandai at mass market, and don't expect to get it from anyone else except at considerable markup. Doh! Diamond Appointed Master Distributor For...

    Herb Trimpe passes

    Legendary comic book artist Herb Trimpe has passed away, age 75. Known as a co-creator of Wolverine, the guy worked on nearly every major character at some point. I would guess that most of us here got to know his work through early issues of the original Marvel GIJoe series, and he penciled...

    Timothy Olyphant head?

    Anyone know of a good head sculpt for this guy? I'm in bad need of a Raylan Givens custom, which should translate easily into a Seth Bullock custom as well. The guy is a badass of the nth order, reminds me of Eastwood in his prime. I'm so sad that Justified is ending... the same way I...

    Furniture

    Random question... where you do buy furniture and not feel like you got bent over? Most of our good furniture was inherited, so I haven't really bought any in forever. My wife wants a new couch, but having known people in that business in the past, they always told me that furniture had...
