Bits & Pieces

Too brilliant for his own good.

DUSTY PLASTIC HELL #7A!!!

The Doctor is brilliant -- and in Dusty Plastic HELL #7A, we see just how brilliant when he tackles a puzzle box that relatively few people have been able to solve! But success with puzzle boxes is not always desirable...  (8/3/08)

For the GLORY of Megatron!!!

LUGNUT IN YOUR HAPPY MEAL!!!

Or maybe not in your Happy Meal, since apparently we've failed to post this in time for you to catch the McDonald's "Transformers Animated" promotion. Don't feel too bad, though -- mini-Lugnut is kinda lame.  (7/29/08)

He's the best at what he does.

A Crayon Haiku #81!

"Wolverine and the X-Men" will be hitting Nicktoons in 2009, but in the meantime he's starring solo in his very own Crayon Haiku! We think he's a bit overdressed for the occasion, but are you gonna tell him that?!  (7/29/08)

So easy to look at, so hard to define.

SARAH JANE'S NEW CLOTHES!!!

Mickey Glitter is back with more funky fashion analysis in Sarah Jane Smith Fashionista Fever! Part Two -- in which we see that Sarah actually developed a sense of style in the company of the Fourth Doctor. Rejoice!  (7/18/08)

Never underestimate a pretty face.

CVS2 MAI SHIRANUI & CHUN-LI!!!

Although the SDCC 2005 Exclusive Capcom vs SNK 2 Mai & Chun-Li 2-pack was a "limited" set, it's still fairly cheap and easy to find. Yes, it's a risky purchase due to quality concerns... but those sculpts sure are lovely.  (7/18/08)

Technicolor pachyderms are *never* too much for me!

A Crayon Haiku #80!

In A Crayon Haiku #80, we welcome an awesome new addition to the action figure collection. Pink elephants may be feared by some people, but here at Scary-Crayon we love them... even if they're not what you covet.  (7/18/08)

Nice collar, Sarah Jane.

SARAH JANE LOVES CLOTHES...

...and Mickey's more than up to the task of critiquing her various outfits in the first installment of Sarah Jane Smith Fashionista Fever! How did Sarah Jane go from fashion boring to fashion funky? It all started here.  (6/27/08)

Life without the Doctor is Hell.

IF THE DOCTOR DIES, SO DO YOU

In "Turn Left" of "Doctor Who" Series 4, we see a future in which the Doctor died in 2006 -- and given how many alien threats he's thwarted since then, it's not surprising that things kinda suck. So does this episode.  (6/27/08)

Let's see you endure six months in the gutter.

MIA: QUALITY CONTROL

Seriously: whereas defects used to be relatively rare, too many toys today are plagued with sloppy paint jobs, stuck and/or broken joints, and other quality issues. So in What Happened to Quality Control?, we talk about it.  (6/6/08)

Kong, Kong, bo-bong, banana-fanna...

THE RETURN OF KONG!!!

Mega-monkey mania comes to a head as we conclude the King Kong action figure review! Climb on in for a look at the remaining 6" Playmates Kongs as well as the 15" figure from Mezco -- but mind the falling barrels.  (6/2/08)

He is Darkseid, lord of Apokolips!

NEW GODS DARKSEID!!!

Jack Kirby's New Gods are currently enjoying a surge in popularity -- and to capitalize on that interest, DC Direct is releasing new action figures of these classic characters! Here, we review the New Gods Darkseid.  (5/13/08)

Someone should be fired for this.

A Crayon Haiku #79!

Thanks to the divine forces of randomness and impulse, the ad pictured in A Crayon Haiku #79 finally makes its amazing debut! Which really isn't so much amazing as it is disturbing. People got paid to make this?  (5/13/08)

Ph33r teh Legion... of D00M!!!

A Crayon Haiku #78!

And they just keep on coming! The Legion of Doom gains yet another evil member in A Crayon Haiku #78. There's yet another bonus haiku as well, though this one is about things lost rather than gained. So sad.  (5/13/08)

PH33R TEH LEGION

A Crayon Haiku #77!

Heroes, heroes, whatcha gonna do... whatcha gonna do when the Legion of Doom comes for you?! Behold the state of the wicked team in A Crayon Haiku #77 -- along with a bonus Salvation Run-related haiku.  (5/1/08)

The Sarah Jane Adventures Drinking Game!

DRINKING WITH SARAH JANE!!!

Thirty years after her stint with the Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith returns in "The Sarah Jane Adventures"! And to make an enjoyable program even more fun, we've created a drinking game you can play while you watch.  (4/11/08)

The 8th wonder of the world!

DISCOUNTED KONG FIGURES!!!

King Kong returns to Scary-Crayon -- this time in the first of a two-part Kong figure review! Here, we look at three of the 6" Kongs as well as the 11" Roaring Kong. Don't be fooled: some Kongs are better than others!  (4/7/08)

Jimmy Olsen: luckiest photographer in Metropolis?

A Crayon Haiku #76!

In A Crayon Haiku #76, Jimmy rightfully blasts Clark for rejecting Chloe on "Smallville". Sure, it's the Silver Age Jimmy Olsen figure and Clark hasn't actually become Superman on the show, but it's still a valid jab.  (4/7/08)

More fun with Bacardi!

APRIL FOOL'S DAY 2008!!!

Yeah, we missed April Fool's Day last year, but we did get a quick commemorative gag off for 2008 -- our pal Bacardi eating to a fun banjo tune! If you haven't seen it (or want to check it out again!), you know where to click.  (4/1/08)
