PGPoA is going on indefinite hiatus

21 February, 2014 - 10:00
After six years, I’ve decided to take an extended break from running Poe Ghostal’s Points of Articulation. I’ve been considering this for years now. I could provide a long list of reasons – or perhaps more accurately, excuses. But really it all comes down to two: interest and time. First and most important, I just […]

Review > Reforged Hun-Dred the Conqueror and Origin Enemy the Dictator (Robo Force, ToyFinity)

18 February, 2014 - 09:30
Six years ago, I wrote an article in ToyFare #132 about the 1980s toy line Robo Force. It was developed by the CBS Toy Company (formerly Ideal, who, side note, created the original Teddy Bear). Like dozens of toy lines in the 1980s it came and went fairly quickly. In my interview in ToyFare with Robo Force […]

Funko says Legacy QC issues will be addressed

16 February, 2014 - 09:00
Just an update on my earlier post regarding the quality control issues on Funko’s Game of Thrones Legacy Collection: in a comment, Funko’s Shawndra Illingworth wrote, Funko has been made aware of these QC issues and our factory has been informed of what changes need to be made on future waves of Legacy. Thanks so much! […]

Poe’s Point > Frequent QC issues with Legacy Collection Game of Thrones?

14 February, 2014 - 13:58
Quality control issues are nothing new in the action figure hobby over the last ten years. The reasons for this are obvious. The most significant problems are rising production costs. The cost of almost everything involved in producing action figures is on a continual and precipitous rise – the petroleum for the plastic, the petroleum […]

Sponsor News > Amazing Spider-man & Captain America Infinite Series on Amazon

14 February, 2014 - 12:20
Please pardon the shill, but ad commissions help keep the site humming. Anyway, this may be old news, but a number of the Amazing Spider-man and Captain America Infinite Series figures are available on Amazon. Some of them (particularly some of the Spider-man stuff) are still available at the cheap Amazon Prime price. Amazing Spider-Man […]

Today’s Teefury shirt. I know these geek-culture mash-ups have gotten tired, but this one is a great idea and the art is fantastic. Someone needs to make a custom Marvel Legends figure of this pronto.

It’s 849803039127. They’re in TRUs system but no stores in my area have them yet. I’ve also called three […]
