    McFarlane's DC Super Powers line keeps knocking it out of the park with those vehicles.

    That Skull Ship actually looks like it's designed to go with the vintage Kenner Brainiac.

    I got a couple more Marvel Legends figures in the mail.
    Also, at a local shop I got a Star Wars Vintage Collection stormtrooper with cannon from the Mandalorian, released a couple years ago. A connector piece for the cannon is missing. I'll see if I can jury-rig something from a random piece of plastic.

    Looks like the YouTube channel of Scott Neitlich, Spector Creative, has been hit with hundreds of copyright claims from one person over pictures of action figures off of Google. The Junkman has a video on it:

    Neitlich's YouTube channel was my gateway into toy collecting on YouTube (after watching The Toys That Made Us on Netflix), and as such was a big reason why I got back into collecting toys. As a former employee of Mattel and Jakks Pacific, he shared insights into the toy industry not available from most other YouTube channels. While he did have a tendency to repeat himself (mostly because he put out so many videos during the pandemic), it would be a true shame if his channel stayed banned.

    Might be able to find a 3d print version too.

    And that's on my list.

    That was quick. The situation is resolved and the Spector Creative channel is back online.

    Maybe?

    Hasbro had published Star Wars Micro Machines so they might have them.

    The very first video review I've spotted for the new Black Series Anakin Skywalker from Episode I.

    The upcoming Black Series 6" Anakin Skywalker and Padmé Amidala based on Episode I and to help celebrate that film's 25th Anniversary, and alongside the artwork from their respective boxes.

    I didn't like that Marvel Select Psylocke figure because of the odd proportions, and the fact I mentioned, that this supposed 7" scale figure is too tall to go with the few other 7" figures I have. So I traded it for some 6" Marvel Legends instead.
