MOTU Origins: Castle Grayskull

grayskull_08
By the power of MOTU gods… I have the Grayskull! I don’t know how it happened, but my WalMart preorder from August last year actually arrived. It’s a reasonable upgrade from the 1980s Castle Grayskull, and worth getting it at retail price. Click below for a break-down of features and more photos. …continue reading MOTU Origins: Castle Grayskull

MOTU Origins Vehicles

panthor_11
I got flocking lucky. Through some perseverance and oh-so-many visits to the same stinkin’ Wal*Marts day after day, I have a fuzzy Panthor in my ranks. Hoo-ray! Is Panthor or Battle Cat really a vehicle or a character? I feel like officially it would be an Accessory, but that sounds like a purse. Maybe it’s a deluxe figure? Battle Cat had a speaking role in the cartoon. Is this another Turbo Teen debate waiting to happen? Let’s take a look at Battle Cat, Panthor, Land Shark and the Sky Sled.

Boglins are back

swampbog
Boglins are back, baby! I was a huge fan of the rubbery monstrous Boblin puppets in middle school in the 80s. I saved up my money for weeks to afford a Bog-O-Bones. (That’s my original Bog-O-Bones in the photos below, that I kept safe all of these years). But here we are, 30 years later, and Boglins have gotten a new opportunity to creep into your houses and wreak a little mischief, thanks to a super successful Kickstarter campaign with TriAction Toys. Click below for more details and tons of pics. …continue reading Boglins are back

Time Travelers Poker Game

CompositeFinal_nosmoke
During quarantine, I’ve filled my time by giving myself complex photo assignments. I thrive on having a project that I can’t solve immediately. I need to work out composition, sourcing props, figuring out lighting, taking the photo and finalizing it for its final form. My latest photo composition asks what if pop culture’s time travelers that visited the old west all played poker together? I wanted an image that was pleasing enough to warrant looking at it for awhile, but if you dig a little, you’ll find props from all three shows. I’ve put together props from Back to the Future III, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, and the Season 5 cliff hanger of Star Trek the Next Generation (when Data’s head blows off and he ends up in 1880s San Francisco) all into one big poker game. Read on!

Playmobil Mars

mars_12
Today NASA JPL is landing the Perseverance rover on the surface of Mars. Did you know there’s a drone in the rover and they will be the first in history to fly a helicopter device on another planet? Wow. Anyway, as we’re watched the live landing, I set up a Mars photoshoot with some of the recent Playmobil Space playsets. Click below to check it out!

Kaiju Big Battel Kaikeshi Kickstarter (Round 1 and 2)

k2_compositeAs you know, we’re huge fans of Kaiju Big Battel here at MillionairePlayboy. For the uninitiated, KBB is an organized wrestling match where the opponents wear Japanese monster costumes and destroy cardboard city buildings along the way. I can only compare it to watching a live-action Godzilla movie. It started about 25 years ago in Boston and has grown to an obsession. Still delightfully underground, its fans are ravenous minions, myself included. I’ve been to over 200 concerts, but this is hands-down my favorite live event. But let’s focus in on their latest Kickstarter project. That’s right, the second round of Kaiju Kaikeshi figures just dropped and I got em all. (and I’ll show off Round 1 as well)
