Bits & Pieces

Not to be confused with that series featuring Emma Peel.


Marvel’s The Avengers isn’t bad, but it’s hardly the perfect movie that fans are raving about. Viewers hoping for a more substantive film — like Iron Man or Captain America — might find it a little disappointing.  (5/5/12)

That's not Skeletor -- it's Bella!


While the first three films in the series were terrible, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 is truly a fantastic movie. Read our in-depth (and late by a day) review to find out just what makes this flick so awesome!  (4/2/12)

Bend your childhood over -- it's time for an anal probe.

Dusty Plastic HELLside #34!

Unsatisfied with fucking up the Transformers, Michael Bay moves to destroy another beloved childhood property on the big screen by inexplicably making the TMNT aliens. I imagine they’ll look something like this.  (3/23/12)

Princess Celestia is many things... but in Equestria, she is God.

Dusty Plastic HELLside #33!

In Dusty Plastic HELLside #33, we join Wes on a guided tour of Celestia’s new castle! It might sound like a dream come true for you bronies out there, but Wes probably wishes he’d never made the trip to Canterlot.  (3/22/12)

Sad like Frogerson.

Dusty Plastic HELLside #32!

Here’s Dusty Plastic HELLside #32, in which comic Wes learns once again that even seemingly nice people can be super-mean meanies. Perhaps somebody should get “PEOPLE SUCK” tattooed on his arm?  (3/20/12)

Maybe illiteracy is the way to go after all.


It’s one part stoner comedy, one part high school drama, and one part supernatural adventure — but “Todd & The Book of Pure Evil” is all good! Well, mostly good. Check out our review for more info on this fun TV show.  (3/13/12)

Google "santorum," kids!

Dusty Plastic HELLside #31!

For the record, Wes supports marriage equality. He’s unlikely to vote for Rick Santorum, or any candidate who panders to the religious right on the issue. Even so, the issue isn’t THAT important to him…  (1/31/12)


Post-Xmas Clearance Toys (Pt 1)

Thrifty collectors know that the best time to buy toys isn’t during the holiday season — it’s after it. Check out Wes’s really cheap toy purchases (with brief reviews) in the first part of Post-Xmas 2011 Clearance Purchases!  (1/27/12)

i can haz ur soul?


Fantasy Land — sounds like a place everyone would want to visit, doesn’t it? Alas, as we learn in this Scary-Crayon coloring book review, you’d do well to steer clear of the land these horrific hooved clones call home.  (1/25/12)

A Cherished Friend!


If you’ve never heard of Cutsie Pets, you’re not alone — apparently Google’s never heard of the line either! For better or worse, we’re here to change that with a review of the Cutsie Pets Glam Gal & Pup set.  (1/16/12)

Merry Christmas from... Skallox?

A Dusty Plastic HELLside Xmas!

‘Tis the season day (or one of them) — and, in Dusty Plastic HELLside #XM2011 (get it?) we mark the occasion with a goofy reinterpreted nativity scene and a couple of holiday cards. Best wishes to you and yours.  (12/25/11)

Wait, what?!

Dusty Plastic HELLside #30!

In Dusty Plastic HELLside #30, Wes attends a party! And receives compliments! Or not. If you can learn to execute this technique properly, you’ll probably become a certified Mackster of the Universe.  (12/16/11)

Freeze in place when you hear his terrifying roar!


Dinosaur toys are a dime a dozen… okay, more like $12 a dozen, but still. Rarer, however, are articulated dinosaur figures. Terroar of Mattel’s Xtractaurs line is an exception — but is it a good toy? Read on to find out.  (12/10/11)

Universe Bird, Universe Bird, knowledge of the entire universe bird

Dusty Plastic HELLside #29!

In Dusty Plastic HELLside #29, Wes learns a valuable life lesson! Or maybe it’s not all that valuable — it’s certainly not (necessarily) deep — but it’s probably good to keep in mind! And the messenger is pretty awesome.  (12/5/11)

Kevin Bolk is a brony.

Dusty Plastic HELLside #28!

More pony stuff in Dusty Plastic HELLside #28, which guest stars artist Kevin Bolk! As a hoofed monstrosity with a swishy tail and a mane, no less. And there’s also… ugh, just click through and see for yourself.  (12/2/11)

Ahhhh, haaaa, Straw-berry Vine o/~

Enter: The Pony Tails Collection!

With the popular “Friendship Is Magic” cartoon behind it, My Little Pony toys are making quite the comeback — but Hasbro’s ponies aren’t the only fillies in town! Lanard’s Pony Tails Collection toys are adorable, too.  (11/29/11)

I don't remember this scene in The Ring...


What does today’s review item have in common with a Michael Jackson Thriller record? Both have a Halloween theme… and they’re both made of vinyl! Read on for a look at one of Creatology’s vinyl decorating toys.  (9/15/11)

NOOOO Pinkie Pie~

Dusty Plastic HELLside #27!

Is this another first? Let’s suppose it is. In Dusty Plastic HELLside #27, My Little Pony first surfaces on Scary-Crayon with the debut of Pinkie Pie! And look! She’s been joined by two otherworldly visitors. Waitasec…  (9/15/11)
