Rainbow Brite: see the shining light!

That's right -- Rainbow Brite comes to Scary-Crayon in Dusty Plastic HELLside #21! I'd been planning to do something like this ever since I picked up the black-and-white NECA TMNT figures over the summer, and if nothing else it gave me an excuse to break out the original Mirage TMNT toys (colored masks and initialed belts notwithstanding) and open another of the Rainbow Brite dolls I snagged on clearance years ago (the first, Patty O'Green, was seen waaay back in the St. Patrick's Day-themed Peanut Butter Pesto Okra & Zucchini Pizza feature of 2005). Did anyone else enjoy Rainbow Brite as a kid? It was pretty darned awesome for a girls' cartoon -- but then, pretty much all of the girls' cartoons of the 1980s were just as good as if not better than the stuff produced for boys. The stuff they air for girls today is just sad by comparison.

Anyway, all for now! Until next time...

Star Wars Transformers Ahsoka Tano review (content pages)

Ahsoka Tano: More than meets the Jedi!

THE CLONE WAR FOR CYBERTRON

Sounds like a nerdy Wheel of Fortune solution, doesn't it? Anyway, in this figure review, we take a look at Star Wars Transformers Crossovers Ahsoka Tano. Drift might have cool swords, but Ahsoka gets lightsabers.  (11/5/10)

An abbreviated toy review! (More to come?)

Today's entry -- a review of Star Wars Transformers Crossovers Ahsoka Tano -- is the first toy review in a new, abbreviated format that will ideally take me less time to write and therefore allow me to update more frequently. But I won't do more of these if you don't find the format to be appealing or informative or notably flawed in some other way, so do take a moment to let me know what you think of it! And heck, let me know if you'd be comfortable with reviews abbreviated even further -- as much as I like the visual style, I could easily see dispensing with the bullet points and just going with the images and a few summative paragraphs. I'll probably do that anyway for certain kinds of toys, as I don't think certain figures (like bootlegs) warrant the full descriptive treatment. We'll see.

Should have another short Dusty Plastic HELLside comic in a few days, so stay tuned for that. Best wishes to everyone out there.
