After much waiting through the painstaking process of design and creation, the 2013-2014 Officer Membership Coins are here, and ready to be mailed out to those that have donated to help keep this site afloat. We are 100% staff and member funded so that we can say what we want, how we want, and when we want. Nobody tells us what to say, and that’s all thanks to you. We’ve done a lot to improve the site, to broaden its area of influence, and to give as many special “thank you for being a member” offers as we can! You help keep this place alive! You help this place grow! So here’s to another year! Stop talking and show me the coins! Read More »

SDCC 2013: Recap Wrap-Up!
I know, you thought I wrapped this all up yesterday with a nice little bow. Didn’t you? DIDN’T YOU?! Well, you’re wrong. I have some more to say. Some of this might give you a feeling of deja-vu, but we got some more pictures and information last minute, and I figured I’d wrap it all up with some final thoughts today. I don’t apologize for reusing some of my thoughts from Day 4, but then I’ve never been all that apologetic. First off, I want to give a big thanks to everyone out in the field who got us some great information and pictures: NSA, Mandingo Rex, TofuJesse, and Duffman. Seriously, you guys, thanks a bunch! And to the guys here at home keeping the forum running with the day to day routine, and helping to gather and present all ... Read More »

SDCC 2013: Day 4 News
Here we are at Day 4, Sunday, the last day of SDCC. It hasn’t been the best as far as the news we got from varying lines, and the amount of 1:18th offerings was pretty slim. It was slightly disappointing on that front, though we did get some outstanding news from Merit and The Bridge Direct, which helps quell some of the disappointment.

SDCC 2013: Day 3 News
Day 3 is a little brighter. Why? Well, despite the woes of the GI Joe news, there were some excellent finds. Some of the news was pretty vague, but some of that was for legality reasons. And while we’re dead set on finding some excellent news to share, we don’t want anyone to lose their jobs over it. So, we appreciate what was able to be shared with us, and we’re glad to have brought you the scoop! For more on what we found, go on and hop over to page 2! Check out more, after the jump!

Word of warning, there are a lot of pictures, they are big, and they are high resolution. We hold no responsibility for the feelings of awesome these pictures may elicit, but you have been warned! Hit up the pictures on page 2! Read More »
