Speaking of Free Stuff, a couple of weeks ago we asked you to supply a caption for this pic of Sting and Triple H, from Buzzy’s review of the TNA Sting.

I picked the winner this time around, and the caption comes from Ayeffkay (full disclosure – I know the guy):

Sting: Behold! Watermelons are like upside-down rainbows! When we find the leprechaun’s gold, I’m going to buy you some goddamn pants.

Triple H: Give me that! When >I< find the leprechaun’s gold, I’m going to buy you a speedo.

I gave him bonus points for the sly reference to Hornswoggle. Congrats, Ayeffkay!

Stay tuned for Sandman’s review of the G.I. Joe Pursuit of Cobra Snow Job and more, coming soon.

A few weeks ago, we ran this CFP of Spider-Man and Venom. As it was Talyn’s pic, he selected the winner, William McKean, for his caption: “..Dude! …Psssst*….Spidey… it’s me Venom, doesn’t it suck that we’re the only two decent figures in our line….” Congrats, William!

We won’t do this every single time, but for this CFP, I’m giving away two loose Mattel WWE figures from my Free Stuff pile. First, Batista, from WWE Basic Series 1. And second, the Ministry Undertaker from San Diego Comic-Con this year.

Please note: both figures are loose, and Undertaker’s left hip joint snapped when freeing his thigh swivel.

I was able to reassemble the joint (no glue), but it will come apart again if you do not handle the figure with care. Don’t worry, though, Undertaker stands with no issues and can be posed if you handle with care. And should the joint fall apart again, it’ll be easy to snap back together.

Hey, what do you want – it’s free! So get cracking on those captions, and good luck!

Jakks’ TNA Deluxe Impact Series 1 is finally hitting the shelves in my neck of the woods! I found them at Toys R Us and Kmart while making the rounds this weekend and I picked up Sting to see how they compare to the old TNA WWE Deluxe Aggression line.

Last Toys R Us Free Shipping Promotion of the Year – 12/17 Only

Just got an email – Toys R Us is having their last free shipping promotion of the year, today, 12/17 only.

Toys R Us

I took a quick look, and there’s a big mix of stuff that you might want to pick up if you skipped it earlier. For example, they have the Sue and Johnny Storm Marvel Legends 2-pack, the Giants of Justice Flash (also on sale), and a bunch of Joes and Marvel Universe figures in the action figure section their free shipping store. Some of the stuff is already out of stock, like the UFC figures, so you might want to check this out early.

The free shipping store goes away at the end of today. Happy Shopping!

CustomCon 24 at

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!  No, not the winter holidays – it’s Winter CustomCon, the 24th installment and the third hosted by

What is CustomCon?

CustomCon is a special presentation of new custom toy creations by customizers around the globe. Eight years in the running, it’s still going strong. Inspired by the presentations of new product by legitimate manufacturers at Toy Fair and other trade shows, CustomCon is a “fake” convention, whereby customizers present their latest creations and recipes as if unveiling a new line of real toys to retailers. It’s always a lot of fun, for both the viewers and the participants.

This special event is running all week, so I’ll try to pick out some of the custom entries that I found really compelling.  Here’s three from day one.
