January 27, 2011


I’ve never done one of these lists before for this site (or on my previous one, I tend to be a glass-half-full type who can find a solid use out of any piece. But…y’know. Sometimes a piece is just bad. It might do something neat, but requires so much extra support or such situational […]

January 26, 2011


#2 is a dynamic duo…(but not a Duo figure…) Batman (DC 75th Anniversary #031) Robin (The Brave and The Bold #042) WHY I WANT TO PLAY THEM EVERY WEEK: When “Batwing’s” dial was revealed, I immediately fell in love with it.

#4 is that fishbowl-headed master of illusion: Mysterio (Web of Spider-Man #056) WHY I WANT TO PLAY HIM EVERY WEEK: Because the sculpt: …reminds me so much of this cover: …the second comic book I ever bought.

#8 Animal Man (DC 75th Anniversary #036) WHY I WANT TO PLAY HIM EVERY WEEK: His excellent trait makes Animal-themed teams a bit more potent…and I like Animal teams. He’s been quite a surprise in how fun he is to run! I DON’T PLAY HIM EVERY WEEK BECAUSE: I’m not so great a fan of […]

Top Ten FAVORITE ‘Clix of 2010!

January 19, 2011

So without […]
