Unboxing the CW Fall Preview Kit

By May 24, 2012 Collectibles, Photography

The CW - 2012-13 Season Preview

As you know, I love getting marketing kits and promotional materials and then laying everything out for a photograph. And it is extremely rare that I’m disappointed by anything from The CW network, as their kits are always gorgeous and well planned out. Today I received advance screeners of many of the new fall shows. These aren’t review copies, so I really shouldn’t say anything other than I was really surprised by some of the charming and clever new shows. I haven’t watched Arrow yet, in case you’re wondering.

The Dictator - Press Kit

The Daily Buzz received an oddly labeled box today which had some (fictional) Republic of Wadiya currency taped to the top. Once ripped open, there was a wealth of “become your own Dictator” items, and what I presume are beer kegger cups. We’ve already started taking photos of staff members as ruthless Wadiya dictators, and will – no doubt – be featuring this stuff on the show.

The FedEx truck rolled up today, delivering an important ‘metal’ case (which I suspect was sent from my contact in SHIELD).

My Angle Nesting Shelves

By January 4, 2012 Collectibles, geekery

I never thought I’d be talking about West Elm angle nesting shelves, let alone hanging them on my wall, yet here we are. And I love them.

My wife got me a pair of these (each in a set of three differently-sized trapezoidal shelves) for my geek lair. One is crawling with Vinymations and vintage cameras…

And the other houses some robots and film cameras, both are a spillover from the other robot, Vinylmation, and camera shelves.

Snapped a photo of these snazzy pair of Converse, made even more awesome by the fact that they had belonged to Russell Brand.

The Greatest Story Never Told

Now that I have a little girl, I’ve found that it’s difficult to own dolls collectibles and keep them in the packaging. I’ve already donated the entire crew of the Star Trek: Voyager to her own geeky toy collection, and tonight she inspired me to crack open one of the Buffy dolls I’ve had in cryogenic freeze (aka “the garage”) for several years.

Noticing that both the Slayer and my “Tigerman” Elvis doll are both rockin’ leather jackets, I decided it was time for them to team up and kick some ass over the Sunnydale Hellmouth. At some point, I’ll build a proper set with lighting, and try this photo again.

My Disney Vinylmations

By April 12, 2011 Collectibles, Orlando

Another byproduct of my obsessive collecting gene…a growing collection of Disney Vinylmation figurines.

4-11-Vinylmations

I have a rule: I only buy them when we got to the Walt Disney World parks, and I rarely get more than two. My collection is somewhat inflated because I’ve received a bunch for free from Disney and well, we got to the parks a lot. I have a few exclusives and chasers, but mostly it’s just random ones I’ve collected since last summer.
