It’s time for some random thoughts on a variety of subjects. I haven’t done one of these in a while, but I have some random ponderings that need addressing.

– Am I the only one excited for Fearless Photog? It seems odd to want such an abomination of a design, but I really want this guy. It’s these sot of things that I love about MOTUC. Wun-Dar is still one of my favorite figures.

– Speaking of MOTU, the price has went up to $22 per figure. Mattel also seems to be putting in the fear of reduced production runs to people. I guess all these big sales have made them really reconsider how many figures they produce. I’m in for the sub next year, so I’m not too worried aside for 30th figures that I may want. However, it’s certainly a cause for concern. Skipping the sub this year has paid off in spades for me as I’ve been able to pick up guys on the cheap, but perhaps this is the last year for that.

– I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas. I know people always say that, but time really has flown by these past few weeks. While out Christmas shopping, I’ve seen tons and tons of gifts that would be perfect for me. It’s a shame I’m not my own family/lover/friends as I would know just what to get me. I don’t know if it’s sad or what, but I’m constantly seeing stuff that I think would be neat to get as a gift.

– On the subject of giving, thanks to the five people who have sent in photos of their donations for this year’s Infinite Toys For Tots. There’s still plenty of time to send in a submission and our goal is to get 30 donations. Here’s hoping! If you run a website or something and would like to give a shout out to our cause, I sure would appreciate it. I hope to have an official update this weekend with some more details of the donations we’ve been matching.

– I have a bunch of really cool reviews coming this week and next. I know I say that a lot, but this time it’s definitely true. Just bare with me, as many of these reviews are seriously photo intensive and I want to make sure to do the reviews justice.

– Remember when other people used to contribute to this site? Whatever happened to those dudes?

– Hopefully in January I’m going to load up the Infinite Hollywood Store with a bunch of stuff I’m looking to get rid of. I keep thinking about it, but never manage to get around to it. With 2012 shaping up to be a big year of collecting, I’ve got to shed some of this junk.

    Christmas IS coming way too fast this year! I haven't bought one single gift for anyone, although, like you, I have seen many appropriate gifts that I myself would like to receive. The rapidity of the Holiday's approach might be the reason for your TFT's slow start. Hopefully, when people actually get out there and start buying, you'll get more donations, Newton. I promise to contribute, and I'll give the readers of MY blog (both of them) another tweak about your drive, too.

    As for your reviews, I for one, would LOVE to see a new Doctor Who figure review. You must have an unmentioned figure or two kicking about your lair!

    I love Fearless Photog…the fact that he's finally being made is awesome, and he's so crazy and outlandish it's fun. I know a lot of people complain about the cartoony nature of some figures in MOTUC, and they want to see more 2k2 style…but the goofiness of MOTU is part of what's made it so endearing over the years, and I welcome it.

  • It's scary how many Doctor Who figures I haven't reviewed that are sitting around in my lair. One or two? Probably a couple hundred. I have one planned for certain and I have one started, so I'll try to crank a couple more out for ya Bill. You know things are bad when I'm over a year behind on some reviews. Yikes!

  • Glad I'm not alone. I've just waited so long for that figure and I think it's kind of awesome that we're finally getting it. I think had they made Photog back in the day, there's no way they would be remaking him in MOTUC. But because they never did, we get Photog at his best!

    Fearless Photog looks fun,if I ever get him Id give him one of those cute wind up walking cameras as a sidekick!

  • That would be awesome. Like his own little Doombots.
