So it’s still not superarticulated, but I think it’s pretty cool that they flocked the toy without sacrificing any of the articulation that the unflocked version has. I wonder how it’ll hold up around that swivel-hinged elbow, though.
Quick note — I’m going to be doing an action figure customizing presentation at this year’s T-MODE, which runs from April 19-21 in Rockville, MD! Yeah, super advance notice, I know! You’ve totally got no excuse for not showing up. XD
Also, my presentation is scheduled for tomorrow night from 11:30pm to 1:30am. I dunno how many folks who’d be up that late would rather hear me talk about cutting up toys than be out drinking or grooving it up at the in-house rave, but whatever! For folks who show up, I’ll have terrible jokes and painting demos and toys on hand that I probably won’t let anyone touch. TOO CLOSE — YOU’RE STANDING TOO CLOSE! I’ll also be around during the rest of the con, if you recognize me and want to say hello. I’m almost always wearing a TARDIS key (spade design), if that makes me easier to spot.
Anyway, you can check out T-MODE’s website here — http://www.tmode.org/ — for more info about directions and stuff. And wish me luck! This’ll be my first convention presentation… and my first public presentation on anything since I was in high school… so here’s hoping I don’t do TOO badly. I just scream confidence, don’t I? :P
In Thrift Store Thursday #8, we delve into the contents of two bags of thrift store toys totaling $1.00 in cost! Lots of Happy Meal toys this time around, for some reason.
Finally posted the Dogpound video review to the website — so if you missed it last month, you can catch it there. When I get around to doing more of these, this is how they’ll be done: embedded video with a brief summary and an image gallery below. That way, if you don’t want to listen to me ramble on endlessly about plastic people, you can totally skip that part. :)
How many dolls can come out of one tiny little 90-cent bag? Find out in Thrift Store Thursday #6!
I flipping hate it when, after someone steals the figure out of a package, retailers just tape the package back up and apply a markdown. NOBODY WANTS TO BUY A MISSILE, DAMNIT.
