You know I always thought Skeletor might've had a sibling. Behold Acromancer!

Hehe, well Scare Glow could probably be considered his sibling as well, though many people believe he's Skeletor's ghost from the future.

You should do a piece on Battle Beasts next. I used to have quite a collection when I was a kid. Touch their breast plate and it would show one of 3 elements, fire, water, or wood. It was kind of an epic version of rock paper scissors.

Have you done a piece on our very own The Leader?

I love the interchangeability aspect. (Is that a real word? Feh, it is now!) I remember spinning the torso of my G.I. Joe figure until the band snapped; made him a double-amputee.
It seems like a missed opportunity to give each figure their own discriptors. One could have "bone bashing" another "skull cracking", etc. But it looks like Preytus and Archterrus have the same card back.

I'm curious just what is involved in making a limited run action figure series like these. Every tutorial I've ever seen shows making wax models first ect.... I dunno, seems complicated to just make a little toy.

Tadao - I've showcased his figures in the past. He did an amazing set of action figured for the cast of Doc Mock's Movie Mausoleum!

HowardC - It is complicated, and the molds for the figures themselves often have limited uses. People say a lot of the popular vinyl art toys these days are extremely expensive; while I agree that they are pricey, in addition to the time it takes to produce a quality figure, it costs a lot to make them as well. That said, I'd still love to do a limited run of my own sometime.

My dad once put it well:

"Jaime, what's the point of being an adult if you can't occasionally blow money on completely pointless cool shit?"

And good god, these things are AWESOME.
