– Why is Lil’ Wayne on the cover of Rolling Stone? I mean, it says he’s on there because he’s going to jail. A rapper going to jail, and that’s cover worthy? Rapper goes to jail is right up there with sky is blue and the sun sets in the west and rises in the east. Lil’ Wayne going to jail isn’t a news story it’s an observation. Waste my time with something better Rolling Stone.


– Why is it so hard to get Doctor Who figures? I’m seriously hating the word “allocation” as it seems to be the bane of us Doctor Who collectors. If Doctor Who sells so good here in the US, why are retailers always randomly allocated? Needless to say my order of figures for Classics Wave #2 has been cut short and supposedly I’ll get the rest of the order in a couple months. I didn’t even manage to get the full wave. Please Underground Toys, stop allocating product and just ship us more Who.

– It’s snowing again. It snows here all the damn time. One day it snows, the next day it’s 40 degrees and it all melts. I think the heat miser and snow miser must be around locally or something.

– The Lost MEGO Figures look stupid. If this is what the Venture Brothers are going to look like, we’re all doomed. TO be fair, it’s harder to translate a property like LOST to the MEGO format than a cartoon. But if JuliusMarx says they look like crap, you know they’re bad.

– Every time I see This, I die a little inside. Please NECA, release these now. And no allocation! Two years I’ve waited and I still cry a little on the inside each day for these.

– I have a bunch of ideas for toys I want to buy, but I haven’t got the money for all of them. I need to figure out what the heck I’m doing. It’s stressful. Anyone want to give me a million dollars?

– Speaking of things I want, the Iron Man 2, 3 3/4 look incredible. I must have these. Soon. I can’t resist them. It’s basically everything I’ve ever wanted in an Iron Man line. They look superb. I don’t get all the Hasbro hate, because when this company gets it right, they get it SO right. I guess it’s just a lot of people still want 6 inch stuff.

– I plan on doing a bunch of reviews this weekend. Sorry for basically delivering very little content this week. It’s just been one of those weeks. Blame my general apathy for the universe.

    The whole Doctor Who situation is driving me crazy too, Newton. After the eleven Doctor set is in my grubby little paws, I may go cold turkey on the line.
