Star Wars stuff is ramping up again, as we’ve had what counts for a hiatus in these crazy times since the Solo movie “only” made 200+ million dollars at the domestic box office. Rise of Skywalker is coming out in … Continue reading Star Wars Chit-Chat
I have to admit that the day is getting to me, so I figured I’d try to cheer myself up a bit. And what better way to do that than with action figure chit-chat! Anyway, over the years I have … Continue reading The Toybox: Batmen
There are many bad dads, good dads, absent dads, and dead dads in pop culture. Directors are often obsessed with dads, and even the MCU has a hang-up with dads. So let us talk…about dads in pop culture! The best, … Continue reading Pop Culture Dads
Maybe we can turn this whole Climate Change and collapse of Civilization thing around! Pool the collective wisdom and expertise of the commentariat a SAVE THE PLANET!!!

I was at Value Village the other day (a chain thrift store that is full of used clothing, vhs and dvd collections, old lamps and broken toys and electronics). It’s close to my work and I usually pop in on … Continue reading The Toybox: Role Play and Prop Items
The Star Wars Celebration is coming, a new title will soon be announced, and the Star Wars brand is at a weird place right now. The past two years have seen a decline in the toy sales, and Solo “only” … Continue reading Star Wars Chit-Chat: Calm Before the Storm
Wanna recommend some good podcasts? Because I’d like some suggestions, and I feel I’m not alone. Continue reading Podcast Recommendations
Bumblebee being a good movie has made me less embarrassed to admit that I really love Transformers. Michael Bay’s movies somehow managed to make a shitty cartoon from the 80s designed to sell toys seem LESS sophisticated and more of … Continue reading The Toybox: The Transformers Thread
Let’s talk toys again! I thought for sure that someone would take up the mantle of the Toybox once I was buried in a shitstorm of work for several months. I didn’t trust myself to stay on task, and so … Continue reading Toybox: Resurrected from the Dead!
It’s been a while since I posted a Toybox (been busy, you see), but I figured I’d just go ahead and post it while I avoid working this morning (it is Friday after all). The thread is open for any … Continue reading The Toybox: Friday Edition
For me, it was all about the Star Wars: http://rebelscum.com/2018-San-Diego-Comic-Con/2018-san-diego-comic-con-hasbro-star-wars-panel-reveal-images/ I’m really digging the cheapo cardboard Solo environments. I know my five year old son would get a lot of play value out of that kind of thing. And the … Continue reading The Toybox: San Diego Comic Con Edition
Have at it: what have you picked up lately? What are you looking forward to? Any nostalgic favourites that you’d like to hunt down? Continue reading The Toybox: Toy and Action Figure Discussion
Lets just remake all the goddamn movies shall we? I encourage the dumbest possible suggestions for remaking The Last Jedi or the Holiday Special or A New Hope or whatever. Continue reading Make Star Wars Great Again: Avocado Edition
No framing topic for today, just talk about toys! But for shits and giggles, here’s my pride and joy of toy collecting…the small and mighty Rocketeer display! The Betty is a custom figure, and I wish the Gee Bee was … Continue reading The Toybox: talk about toys!
The Toybox is an open thread that welcomes chit-chat about any and all topics related to action figure and toy collecting. The monster is the ultimate toy subject. If there is a movie coming out in a genre that allows … Continue reading The Toybox: Monsters vs Monsters
Still want to talk about Star Wars but want to avoid raising the ire of those in the open thread? Well have I got a thread for you! It’s, uh, this one right here. Continue reading All-Purpose Star Wars Thread: Solo and Beyond
As always, this is an open thread to discuss any and all topics related to action figure and toy collecting, so be sure to have at it. As for my header, one of the best things about being a dad … Continue reading The Toybox: Cardboard Adventures
I’m feeling pretty shitty about being a Star Wars fan right now, in light of the horseshit that Kelly Marie Tran has had to endure by anonymous fuckwits that think it’s totally cool to harass a young woman because she’s … Continue reading The Toybox: Open Action Figure Collecting Discussion
Feel free to discuss anything in the comments below related to your dollies. Me? I came to realize that the best realization of the toyetic potential of Star Wars may have been the Clone Wars series, and its supporting toy … Continue reading The Toybox: Open Action Figure and Toy Discussion
Okay, so Solo is coming out this weekend, and the predictions are that i’ll well, but not STAR WARS well. There’s a lot of competition for Nerd Dollars, and The Last Jedi was less than six months ago, so maybe … Continue reading Finding New Paths in the Star Wars Universe
I had another image set to go for the header, but my phone was having a hard time connecting to the Wi Fi, so I’m re-using this one I posted yesterday in the Open Thread. Anyway, I don’t have a … Continue reading The Toybox: Action Figure Discussion!
