Toy Review – Game of Thrones Legacy: Tyrion Lannister from Funko

Lest you think I forgot about these new figures from Funko, let’s return to the land of Westeros and take a look at my favorite character on television – Tyrion Lannister.
Before I talk about the sole member of the Lannister family that isn’t an intolerable shitbag, let me update you on the status of my damaged Game of Thrones figures.

Toy Review – Pacific Rim Jaeger: Cherno Alpha from NECA

I didn’t realize how memorable the score from Pacific Rim is until I started editing pictures for this review. It immediately came to mind and is now stuck in my head – and I don’t mind at all. I don’t even own the score (though I probably will by the time you read this), but I’ve definitely watched the movie enough times by now to know the key music.

Toy Review – Batman: Arkham Origins Anarky from DC Collectibles

I’ve always thought that Anarky was kind of stupid. Of course, I’ve also long held the belief that anarchy is kind of stupid. Once you get past the cool looking “A”, the core belief system leaves a lot of room for poop in places where poop does not belong. And I can’t get behind that.

I Was A Double Dare Reject By R.T. Ewell

When I was young, Nickelodeon was my channel. I LOVED it. There were so many great shows on. From Doug to Clarissa Explains It All. I can't forget to mention its flagship show for a long time, You Can't Do That On Television. Not to mention the game shows that were strictly for kids. Finders Keepers, Legends Of The Hidden Temple, and GUTS. I thought GUTS, which was a kids American Gladiators, was a show that would have been cool to be on. Of all of these awesome shows there was one show that ruled them all. Double Dare.

Toy Review – Marvel Legends Infinite Captain America: The Winter Soldier Winter Soldier from Hasbro

***SPOILER – DON’T READ IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE WINTER SOLDIER***

Man. These post titles just keep getting sillier.

Also, I am sick and fucking tired of these figures breaking on me:
Yep. That’s Bucky’s damned arm lying on the ground.

More Fundraising – The Best Random Posts

This was supposed to be posted almost two weeks ago, but other things kept coming up. Among them are the fact that my external hard drive crashed and I do not have access to my recorded podcasts. Or my music or pictures or videos or anything else.
What the fuck is up with technology? I have tried two different backup programs and I can’t ever get them to work. I keep my stuff on an external hard drive because I thought that would be better, but apparently there is no “better”. Is the only solution to pay some exorbitant fee to one of those cloud backup services?
Anyway, I’m writing this on Saturday and there’s a possibility my data can be recovered. We’ll see.
On a brighter note, as of last Saturday I have raised enough money to upgrade my plan with Podbean. I want to offer my sincerest thanks to John, Chris, R.T. Ewell, Beth V, Sharron, John & Ashley, Heather, Gregg, and the Coopers. You guys are outstanding.
I want to give extra-special thanks to Lori of Third Half Studios for not only helping out with a donation, but for providing the even more valuable support of advice and encouragement. I don’t know what I did to earn such a good friend, but I’m glad I did it.
As for the rest of the Phantomaniacs, I want to thanks you guys for checking in every day. Not everybody has the ability or desire to throw money at some stranger’s website and podcast, but your continued interest means a lot to me.
