  • Deadpool knows what the 5th pocket on Jeans is for
    Photo-A-Day #3956

    Before I get to showing you the Marissa Faireborn and Afterbreaker figure I wanted to talk about my new Deadpool Pocket Watch. I saw an ad on Facebook, one of those 1st certain number of people to order get it free. You just have to pay for shipping. I liked it a lot and so I got a second one for a friend of mine. Now I have a pocket watch for my fifth pocket of my jeans.

    The Transformers Collectors Club had a sale and the Marissa Faireborn and Afterbreaker figure went way down so I had to pick it up. I really liked that there were little subtle crossovers on the Transformers cartoon when I was a kid and one of those was an appearance by Marissa Faireborn. She’s actually the daughter of Dashiell “Flint” Faireborn and Lady Jaye. It is just cool to have that kind of cross over. More below.

  • New Skylanders Superchargers Valentines

    I received a package of the new Skylanders SuperChargers Valentine’s Day cards to show you. Unfortunately the kids already did all their cards for this Valentine’s day. Maybe I’ll have to give them out to my Skylanders loving Friends. The cards are nice, great designs, good paper and they also included 35 stickers in the package. The stickers aren’t Valentine’s Day themed so you can use them anywhere. The cards themselves of course are themed for Valentine’s Day and would make great ones for your classroom party. Maybe I’ll give them to Allison to give to her students. The stickers are mine, though.

    If you are looking for an alternative to candy for the kids this Valentine’s Day then a new Skylanders SuperCharger works just great. But even better is spending time playing the game with the kids. There are also some additional card designs below and also my video from yesterday where I unbox the cards. read more!

    Way too much Wind I need #ToughRelief during these Snow Days #Ad

    Last year we had snowstorm after snowstorm and with this year’s Winter hitting hard later on I thought I might be safe from a tough Winter. But right after Phil made his prediction of an early Spring Winter turned around and said, “No Way!” Winter then came out of its burrow and started burying us. I fired up the snowblower, our neighbor’s, and started removing a bunch of the white stuff all while enjoying a Fisherman’s Friend Throat Lozenge. read more!

  • Safari Ltd. Made a Dragon Just for Me
    Photo-A-Day #3955

    With Toy Fair coming next week or so I am starting to feel like I’m going to be left out. I will really miss attending the show this year. I love toys and Toy Fair has a been so much fun the past three years. I’ve made some great contacts for toy reviews. One such contact is with Safari Ltd. I love their toys and today they sent me three new figures. A Sauropelta Dinosaur, a Princess Dragon and an all new Grumpy Dragon, the dragon I swear they made just for me. When I saw this guy I knew that I had to have him. He looks fantastic and will be great on my desk at work. Probably because I am the grumpy guy there. Apparently I am also the grumpy guy at home because when Eva saw it she said it was like me saying “don’t do this, don’t do that, no, no, no”. She’s right. The other dragon is cute and Eva loves it because it is like a princess. It has braids and painted nails. Despite that it is a cool looking dragon with great wings and a some shiny paint applications. The dinosaur is super detailed and interesting. I show you them all up close in in today’s vlog.
