Presented for the collective amusement of the Tomopopulus, here's a gallery of buddies George and Lenny from NECA's recently released revamped-ish Gremlins line

Currently without power, no clue for how long. Just wanted you all to know that I (barely) survived "Franken-storm"
Last storm was 8 days without my house having power. Kinda curious if they can beat that record, which might be possibly given all the downed trees that make just getting into town hard.
(DISCLAIMER: My hopes don't necessarily reflect the hopes of Tomopop.com =p)
Can you feel the hype in the air? Fans fervently wishing for certain collectibles, waiting to see if their dreams will be answered or what crazy su...
SDCC07 She-Hulk arrived with, well, indecent exposure. Looks like she slipped in package (half wonder if the seller displayed on shelf then repackaged to claim it's new, not placing it properly) and her nipple (well, whe...
The Lion-o, Panthro, and Cheetara were all really iffy but Tygra actually looks decent. Supposedly he's one of the later ones in the line so he won't even be hitting all areas. It's starting to seem like the revamp may be dead.
...and vote for which minimates you want to see:

Yeah, because this things are already sold in sooooooooo many other places >_>
There are so many things wrong with this...
Just a quick heads-up. Apparently Marvel released the date over their twitter feed. ToyArk ran the story, including the reve...
Apparently open flames aren't the only thing capable of changing the color of MattyCollector's giant 20" Stay Puft Marshmallow Man (based on the iconic last-second character from the original Ghostbusters movie) as at least f...
Yes, it's going to be one of those...

Semi-old news but I just heard it a few days ago. Apparently Mattel decided to cancel the Young Justice toyline (both the 4" and 6" lines). And the hits keep coming, since during a Toyark Q&A with a Mattel rep we learned "W...
Why am I not hearing about it here?!?!
As you'll remember, Diamond Select picked up the name after the licensing lapsed. Apparently it's been confirmed to only apply to the name and, as such, we aren't going to get rub sign...
About Scarecroodle One of us since 2:33 PM on 11.13.2009
What is a Scarecroodle?
~It's a catchier and more memorable name than Scarecrow, which is generally taken anyway. Scarecrow, being a fear-related villain with a catchy costume, is probably one of my all-time favorite villains (just not the movie version).
Beyond that, I'm just your average, run of the mill editor for Tomopop (Destructoid's less successful sibling) and mostly cover western releases.
What does a Scarecroodle like?
~I love fighting games, platformers, horror, and anime. I also collect a lot of Marvel/DC stuff, but most of that interest stems from the old cartoons/movies and the comic interest only came because I thought some of the figures looked insane. Figure-wise, I think the 6\" scale is probably the ideal size for figures. At that size they can make nice display pieces, sick detail, and joints that don't break (like in the crappy smaller scales).
I'm also a massive fan of the really small scales because it usually allows for a lot of incredible-looking scenery (check out stuff like Warhammer, etc). I would love to really get into sculpting, but I'm kinda clumsy which doesn't work well when things need to be exact.
I'd really like to get into statues (because the detailing and paint is usually good), but the pricing is more than a little daunting and you don't get as much variety out of them whereas figures can be posed into elaborate set-ups or whatever.
