Slowing Down for the Summer…

Starting this week, I’m cutting back updates to just three times a week: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I will continue to do Vintage Vault on Monday and Friday, for the next two weeks, at which time the planned number of Monday M.A.S.K. editions will have wrapped up and I will just be doing VV on Fridays. There will still be about three weeks’ worth of AD&D installments and after that it will rotate to different toy lines.

The cutbacks aren’t because I’ve lost any passion for doing this nonsense, but because I just don’t have that steady inrush of figures and toys to look at. If it weren’t for pulling out my really old stuff for the Vintage Vault featues, I would have had to resort to this a long time ago. Toss in the fact that I’m now doing the jobs of two managers at my work, the daily updates are too much right now. Maintaining a daily update schedule takes a lot of work, but without new stuff to look at, and having to dig through storage to find stuff to look at, it just becomes too time consuming for me to keep up with.

Eventually, I’ll be back to more frequent updates. The dry spell can’t last forever, and we have some really cool stuff coming out in 3rd and 4th Quarter of 2012. But for the time being, I think cutting back is the best thing I can do to maintain some consistancy for FigureFan and my own sanity. I’m not sure that I’ll ever get back to a daily routine, but Monday through Friday is a happy medium that I’d like to shoot for.

As always, thanks for reading, and I’ll be back tomorrow…


Well, not really, but I am going out of town this week starting tomorrow. I should be back early enough on Friday to get some content up before the end of the week, but in the interim Figurefan will be closed from Tuesday to Thursday.

I may also be skipping town for the weekend too, but that remains to be seen. Either way, I’ll try to get back to business as usual by next week.


Sunday… Ahhh!

Yep, it’s Sunday so I’m taking the day off. Its been a grueling week at work and I’ve got a nice three-day weekend as the payoff. As you read this, I am curled up in a whiskey bottle with a jerry-rigged, steam-driven VCR playing a marathon of slightly garbled old episodes of Bionic Six. A possibility for future installments of VIntage Vault? Hmm… could be…

I might try to get up to Toys R Us this weekend and see if I can find anything new on the pegs because it has been a long time since I’ve found anything current that’s worth buying. On that note, my Voltron Yellow Lion and Hunk figure should be coming in any day now, so we have that to look forward to next week, along with the usual M.A.S.K. and AD&D editions of Vintage Vault, another Marvel Universe Comic Pack, some more Doctor Who, and whatever I can find to fill the gap in between.

See y’all tomorrow.
