Wheel of Time Action Figures Part 4: Supergirls, Ishamael & Thom

***Just a quick note, the bulk of this article was written this weekend. As some of you may know, my grandfather passed away this morning, and as you can imagine that has derailed more plans than just the ones I discuss later in the article. But as I sit here I find myself wanting something to take my mind off things for awhile, so I'm  finishing this entry. Obviously, anything beyond this is up in the air right now, but I will keep you guys posted.***

If you'd have told me I'd be staying in on a Friday and Saturday night writing toy-related geek blogs instead of out poppin bottles in the VIP with my boys and gettin' my swerve on with the hunnies, I'd have called you a liar, and a communist. Then I'd pants you, give you a wedgie, steal your lunch money, and scream NERRRD at  you Homer Simpson style. In front of the whole campus. After all, as my buddy Glenn pointed out to me last week, when you stay in on Friday night, that's letting the terrorists win. But here I am, writing away, because as it turns out, its become pretty important to me that I get the custom Wheel of Time figures blogs done and out of the way a.s.a.p., because I've made a little decision regarding the future of these figures... and that decision is, I'm doing more. Insert appropriate musical accompaniment here. I dunno, ominous drums or something...

My Geeksmas Tree!

My Geeksmas Tree 2010, which looks a lot like my Geeksmas Tree '09 (except without me in a Santa hat and boxer shorts laying underneath it... if you were around for Joey's Xmas photo last year, you know. I'll spare you newbies).

Anyway, the theme of the tree of course is Star Wars, since that's what the majority of the ornaments I own are. The village on the floor is The Simpsons by Hawthorne Village. Real quick story for those who don't know, but Hawthorne Village is a company who do all kinds of "holiday" villages, Simpsons, Yankees, name it. Basically, you sign up subscription-like and every month they send you a new house. It was like 60 or 70 bucks per house, or something like that.

Wheel of Time Action Figures Part 3: Shadowspawn!

Hey kids, I'm back with the third installment of my feature on my custom made Wheel of Time action figures, based of course on the characters in the fantasy novels written by Robert Jordan. Having exhausted the details of my inspiration for making my own Wheel of Time toys in the last two parts of this article (you can see those here and here ) I'll spare you any more details of my not-so-romantic teenage years and dive right into this one. Today's features are two Trollocs and Myrddraal... Where its at? I got two Trollocs and Myrddraal. Where its at? I got two Trollocs and Myrddraal. Where its at? I got... Ahh forget it, on to article.
