Here’s a Night Creeper whose look measures up to his name and abilities. Ever since the original, we’ve been led to believe that these guys are high tech infiltration ninjas. I could see the ninja aspect in the 1990 mold, but aside from the helmet, not so much the high tech. This one looks much More >
Here’s a first, both for the blog, and for Nice Pants Week. It’s one of the few 25th anniversary figures that I don’t have loose. Back when the series was going on, I was buying one to keep carded, and one to open. This is from a time before I had two children, by the way. These days, I’m much more More >
It’s been a while since I’ve dedicated a week to that most essential of vestments: the pant. Throughout the history of human civilization, covering one’s lower extremeties has been a necessity. And throughout that time, there has also been a need among humankind to dress to impress. From ancient More >
I just don’t get prime time television these days. To have a series based on a serial killer would have been unthinkable in the past. Maybe I’m just getting old, but I can’t get into Hannibal beyond his appearance in the original Silence of the Lambs film. Wait, what? Oh, sorry. Wrong Hannibal. More >

Nemesis Enforcer. Sounds like the sort of thing you’d see as a knock-off Masters of the Universe villain.They say that Cobra-La was a placeholder name that was left without being changed, and Nemesis Enforcer seems generic enough to be one as well.
In the movie, Nemesis Enforcer was a hulking More >
Yesterday’s entry was one of the more obscure driver figures, and today’s is one of the better known. If you were around in the 80s for the small Joe line’s beginnings, you’ll remember this figure, and his vehicle. Though some of today’s collectors scoff at repainted figures and reused vehicles, I More >
Question: are certain members of Python Patrol meant to be individuals? I know that Cooperhead is, but some of the other figures’ file cards change the terms from previous releases like “these” to “he’s”, and also frequently “this guy” which leads me to believe some may not be troopers, but rather More >
