Mego Micronauts' Andromeda. Baron Karza's trusted mount. This actually came earlier in the week, but only now do I have some time to photograph and share it. More than the last two Micronauts I shared, this one has been on my want list since 1977. Apart from the box, Andromeda is complete and in… Continue reading Mail Call: Mego Micronauts Andromeda
This week I received some great pieces in the mail. 1977 Mego Micronauts Force Commander and his mount, Oberon. These are pieces that I never owned as a child. They are missing a few parts but I am always down to hunt for bits-n-bobs. One of my favorite things about these two is… Continue reading Mail Call… Mego Micronauts

Clutch, on the other hand is in… Continue reading Mail Call: G.I. Joe V.A.M.P. (1982)

Recreating the line art using nothing by shapes was a pain, but it's scalable to any size. As what is virtually the digital inker of the… Continue reading Big Jim’s P.A.C.K. – Dr. Steel
I just need to know where to get one! This would step up my cosplay game ten fold. No, but seriously this is pretty neat. Probably expensive for the time, but it seems well worth it. I would have wanted to wear mine everywhere.
This last week I received one of my childhood toys in the mail. It was the 24" tall Mattel Shogun Warriors Raydeen. The proper spelling, from the animated show, is Raideen and that is how I'll be referring to the figure. I couldn't believe the condition that it was in. There are more than… Continue reading Shogun Warriors: Raydeen
