Since my forced downsizing, I have shifted my focus for collecting to pieces from the 70s. I do have an odd 80s piece here and there, but those things will be the next to go. My Star Wars collection is no different. There are a few Ewoks in the house, but those belong to Mrs. […]
I adore this figures’ design. Even her name is beyond clever. She’s based on the rarely seen Outer Space Men by Colorforms. Click through the photo above to learn all about this gorgeous piece of collectible plastic on the wonderful blog known as “She’s Fantastic“. She inspired the design you see below.
Did you know that I share my drawings and the occasional collectibles on Instagram? Most of the time I share my latest art there before I post in on my website, while some things never get posted anywhere else. All IG posts there are by me. Whether it’s a meme, or a photo taken, a […]

I’ve seen companies like Funko make their line of ReAction Figures of properties from the 70s and 80s and hoping that Hasbro might release some throwback […]
My friends, bear with me as I wax poetic about a podcast that saw me through many an hour of being locked in a day cage, re: cubicle. Pod Stallions. I’ve listed to episodes over and over. It’s as if Brian, of Plaid Stallions, and Jason, of Bif Bang Pow toys, became my friends in […]
