The Doctor, The Demigod & The Great Beast part 2

The second part of this story starts several thousand years ago, in ancient times, where there was an ongoing battle between the Eskimo Gods of the North and the Mystical Great Beasts for control of the world. In the end, both Gods & Beasts found themselves exiled from the Earthly plane. In order to insure the Earth’s safety though, the Eskimo Gods sought to create a hero to battle the Great Beasts should any of them manage to return.

The Doctor, The Demigod & The Great Beast part 1

Dr. Walter Langkowski is one of those examples of a well rounded “you can have it all” kind of characters in the Marvel Universe. He was an honors student at the University of Calgary and went to Pennsylvania State University on a football scholarship, earning a degree in physics. After that he became a professional football player playing for the Green Bay Packers and earned a ton of money. And if that wasn’t enough, after retiring he continued his graduate studies at M.I.T. Yet for all his educational and professional accomplishments, in the Marvel Universe he is best known for his big orange furry alter ego.

Looking Back at Fodder Times

As extensive as Hasbro’s 25th Anniversary line was, it was pretty unrealistic to expect them to do modern updates of every single character introduced in the original toyline. And so for those characters that Hasbro didn’t update, a completist like me was left with only one solution, to make them myself.

Playing Frankenstein

As a young collector, G.I.Joe was MY toyline, unlike Transformers and Masters of the Universe, Joes were much cheaper so I could actually get more toys using just my allowance. I amassed quite the collection as a kid but unfortunately sold off most of them when I started getting interested in other...stuff.

Singapore Sundays

After living in Manila my whole life, sometime in 2007, I felt it was time for major change in scenery, I had been working the past 3 years in the same company as a web designer and longed for a new adventure in a foreign land. I had no real game plan and was rather idealistic and naive and figured I could just go travelling to some nearby country and apply for job and “tada” new life! I mean that’s how it goes right?

The Best of 2017 part 3

If you’ve read the first two parts of my top toys for 2017, you will notice a trend with what kind of toys I focused mainly on this year. Well…*spoiler*....my final five won’t really shake things up too much. Despite a lackluster movie toyline, 2017 will go down as one of the best years for Transformers collectors between all the 3rd party company releases and Hasbro and Takara themselves stepping up their game as well. Star Wars toys also had a pretty strong showing over the excitement over The Last Jedi. Luckily though, there still is some room at the top for one more surprise purchase. So with that, let’s go and close out my top 2017 list.

The Best of 2017 part 2

Ok so I know this is getting a little ridiculous adding another number to my “best of” list to coincide with the year (top 25 of 2025?) but with the sheer amount of purchases this year, it really is hard to whittle everything down to a proper top 10...and well..I’m lazy. I promise i’ll try and figure out something in the near future. But in the meantime….here’s the next installment of my top 17.
