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

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)

Mattel Creations’ Crystal Skeletor

skeletor_06
I got a great surprise on my stoop this morning. The Mattel Creations‘ Skeletor I ordered on a whim back in October showed up! I have gotten into the Masters of the Universe Origins line and when I saw a link for the clear Skeletor pop up, I thought to myself, this isn’t my top dream figure, but if I don’t preorder it now, I’ll be disappointed when it comes out and everyone else has it and it’s too pricey to get. So I did, and now I have it, and I’m thrilled! Click below for more pics.

Grail Acquisition: Vintage Dagobah Playset

dagobah_09
When I was a kid I always wanted “Yoda’s House” playset; this was one of the mighty grails that I never got. But now I’ve restored one and collected all the figures on the packaging, I’m ready to celebrate and show off. I had been eyeballing purchasing a vintage Dagobah playset for some time, but it was finding a mostly complete set with a box in good condition that made this too hard to pass up. Not only is the box in reasonable condition, but I love the retail stickers on it. Not only was this particular box clearanced, it ended seems it ended up at $3! THREE DOLLARS?! Holy crap.

Click below for a ton more pics, including my attempt at recreating this packaging shot.

MOTU Origins: He-Man & Skeletor

origins_11
By sheer luck, I HAVE THE POWER! It has taken a lot of patience and a lot of stops in random Wal*Marts, but I finally got my hands on a Masters of the Universe Origins He-Man and Skeletor. After watching seemingly hundreds of fellow collectors defy the odds and the scalpers and post pics of their own hauls, I finally had my day. I took a ton of photos, click below for more!
