GI Joe Resolute 7-Packs up for Pre-order

Now why couldn't I ever find stuff like this when I was a kid? It was always the nonsense about having to "collect them all" or "figures sold separately." "Man, frick that noise", I would say, presumably in a h...

Otaku madness: check out VTSan's collection

Uh ... whoa. Despite the fact that I know quite a few out-of-control collectors, this guy takes the virtual cake. Meet VT-San, a collector whose collection will either stupify you or cause drops of burning jealousy to rise in your tear duct...
