Drunk? More like unsure of yourself. You are so sure of yourself in the forums and in the ring. Youtube is not much different!

Justice League figures? My brother has a near complete set out of the package. Myself? I stuck to just Bat villains and Spider Villians in heroclix outside TMNT figures, I am a selective and vile kind.

Well it ain't like sh*t's free (or even cheap!), brother. I totally understand how most people have to be quite selective with their purchases.

With most lines I only try to get one of every "major" character in their most basic or traditional look, and even that can be a huge undertaking.

That's why I have a ton of DC Direct but only a handful of Mattel DC figures, or how I have a million Jakks WWF/WWE but only about a dozen Mattel WWE ones. If I'm heavily invested in one line, it's VERY tough for me to shift gears into another, similar line, even if it's got some improvements.

Can't have everything. That's the toughest thing for anyone to deal with.

These remind me of, like, 2009 YouTube and I love it.

I'd love to see you review some of the more f*cky DC figures, like those Legends of the Dark Knight ones. Those would be hilarious. I'd recommend the Joker with another Joker inside him, or Annihilus Robin.

Hahaha, I skipped all that sh*t on purpose. Maybe if I find something outrageous for cheap.

As a rule I always skipped those kinds of things because they're essentially clutter. Even as a kid I hated that goofy sh*t.

Yeah, we're not very tech-savvy people so it's a low-fi, no-frills project. I'm hoping to skate by on personality.

Second review was good.

I only have a few Batman things. A figure from the 89 movie and some different Batmobiles. I have this really tiny one that must have come from Micro Machines. Itís really cute.

Only Catwoman Iíd consider getting is the Neca Batman Returns figure or if an even better one gets made. Iíve always liked Michelle Pfeiffer.

Eh. She's alright. It was an interesting performance but it's nothing at all like Catwoman, aside from the whip. The review figure is pretty much my favorite look for Catwoman, I think, aside from the '66 TV show.

DC Direct did some awesome Catwoman figures, including one with pretty much that same outfit (but a more comic-accurate color scheme), so hopefully I'll get to talk about those at some point. I'm definitely going to be doing some DC Direct sooner rather than later. I could get a lot out of just my Superman and Batman stuff. But I also want to do some stuff that's a little more obscure.

I have a lot of stuff from storage to go through and re-pack, so that will have a lot to do with what I end up covering and when. The next one is gonna be totally different and hopefully really, really cool. I just need to find a couple of things for it first.

I shot a bunch of stuff for the next two videos today, so those might be coming out some time in the next few days. One is really long and one is more standard-length, but they share a theme. Lots of fun, hopefully done soon.

So hey, I know it's not important but I felt like mentioning it anyway. We actually have a bunch of stuff shot for at least three more videos, but the laptop we use for putting them together died a few days ago. I think we have the footage saved to a memory card but it's going to be tough to finish them anytime soon, I think.

The good news is, we had managed to get YouTube working for us again recently, so If/When we manage to finish them, we'll have at least three new videos up at some point. And even though I'm unemployed and thus won't be buying toys again until God knows when, I still have tons of stuff in storage, so if I want I can keep this going forever.

So yeah, we'll see what happens. Just didn't want anyone who did care to think I abandoned the project. Not yet.

Now is going to be the best time to buy stuff as businesses want the income and might mark down. Or, now is going to be the worst time to buy stuff because businesses might price gouge.

I seriously have no clue how that might work out at the moment.

The places I buy most of my comics and toys from are, for now, staying open through mail-order, but given that I'm out of work indefinitely (yet still expected to pay rent with $0 income ), I can't see how I'll have money to spend on "nonsense" anytime soon. But man, I'd love to.

I'm a materialist; "things" make me happy and fulfilled more than people do, and buying stuff often gets me through the tough times. So this really, really sucks for me. "Stay inside, and don't spend a penny on anything but food." That's not "living", to me. I've been there before and it was not a fun time. I was hoping that was all behind me. Being forced back into that situation through circumstances far beyond my control is incredibly hard to cope with.

Guess we'll see what happens.
