Because I basically eat, drink and sleep toys, I’m immersed in collecting culture pretty much 24/7. And as such, sometimes other collectors who I think are being overly demanding can grate on my nerves just a little bit.

Marvel Select Destroyer Odin Figure Released & Photos!

Marvel Select The Destroyer Odin Figure Released

The postal service is infuriatingly slow delivering my latest Diamond Select Toys figure (grumble grumble), so that meant I had to take a field trip down to the mall this week to at least take packaged photos of the first Marvel Select figure to arrive this year!
