I was over at friends house a few days ago, touring his amazing/insane collection of toys and stuff. Lot’s and lots of toys. I think his goal is to have All The Toys. He has what I’d call ( now that I know ) The Ante Room which is amazing as it is, the Secret Room of Everything truly lives up the name I just made up for it. His collection leans heavily on Marvel Characters, Star Wars and too many other franchises to even start naming. It is truly a thing of wonder. Read the rest of this page »
I just received an email from Modiphius about the upcoming John Carter of Mars game and it’s got lost of goodies. As I’ve mentioned, I’m completely Game Impaired ™ with only the occasional bamboozling because of beer and peer pressure. Okay sometimes it’s fun… Read the rest of this page »
This is sort of weird. ERB fans are reading in the past, but I never had the feeling that ERB was all they read. I read a comment yesterday on Facebook that stated “any new books that I’ve tried to read in the last 30 years has been a great disappointment.” This wasn’t said by some 110 years old, maybe 40-50 ?

Modiphius has a new online magazine covering their products, as well as the creative process of getting there. Issue #1 of Modiphia has a detailed look at the sculpture of the John Carter figure from the upcoming game. I’ve clipped a couple images from the article. You can see that they have cast their net wide in collecting reference material ( but none of my John Carter art, damn ! ) including the image of Thark rifles to the left from the John Carter Movie art book. I’ve also attached a look at Carter’s accessories. You can download the whole thing HERE at their home site. I’m really excited about the game, or the figures anyways ( I’m seriously ‘Game Impaired’) but I really want a shelf full of John Carter characters. – Jeff
I’ve been chomping after these for a long time. I’ve been chomping for any John Carter figures really, but we all know that. Looks like I’m going to have bone up on how to paint really really small things instead of what I’m used too. Read the rest of this page »
