Action Figures & Their Beers – The End is here

on 2017-11-18, 03:28:57


Vocation Brewery of Hebden Bridge, Yorkshire (Est. MMXV) brings us this 6.5% ABV, lightly fizzy golden wonder of an IPA. I don’t have a “Life” figure to go along with it – well, I have a G.I. Joe Lifeline from 2011, but he’s in storage (big surprise). But ...

Action Figures & Their Beers – My kind of town!

This version of their 8.5% ABV ale is a little more mysterious than usual. I haven’t found anything on the packaging or on the Fuller’s website that indicates how many were produced this year. There’s space in the individual numbers for the bottles to go up to ...

Action Figures & Their Beers – The Rise of Kobra

From the makers of the beer that started me on this running gag all those years ago, we have King Cobra, a massive, champagne-corked bottle of 7.5% ABV, double-fermented joy. This beer pushes all the right buttons for me.

It’s very much like the excellent Fuller’s Vintage line, in ...

Action Figures & Their Beers – On the razor’s edge

on 2017-11-13, 18:58:48


The good folks of the nearby (nearby to me, anyway) Hunter’s Brewery of Ipplepen once again put their brains and backs into turning out another brew, this time, described as “The Ultimate Pale Ale,” produced in collaboration with The Bluebeards Revenge, a local business described as ...

The Windsor & Eton Brewery in Berkshire (a/k/a the Uprising Brewery) is out to overthrow the old order of British brewing and take the crown. To that end, they bring us Treason IPA, a 5.8% ABV with not a lot of information on the can. Apparently, it contains water, ...

CAN IT BE?! IT IS . . . !

It took me almost nine years and over 180 beer reviews to get here, so I wanted this to be epic. Two iconic Tyrannosaurs flank this week’s lager choice. The Masterpiece version of the leader of the Dinobots, a character who was ...

Star Wars BATTLES for Toy Toni FAKES!

by Bill Cable
on 2017-11-08, 10:08:06

So the latest fad in high-end Vintage Star Wars Ccllecting is Star Wars Battles - a secret, invite-only Facebook group where members can conduct raffles. You post your item, set a number of slots and price-per-slot, and then a few dozen of your closest friends send you money for the chance to randomly win your item. Not being one to miss out on easy cash, I decided to BATTLE my recently-graded Toy Toni fake!

Since it's a secret group, I can't really link to the BATTLE. If you'd like a slot, then send me an IM and I can add you to the group. I only marked up the price of the item by about 8 times what it's actually worth - a relative bargain! I can post a link to the totally boss CAS announcement of their new Toy Toni grading service:

For many years AFA would grade these Toy Toni fakes, no problem! Thousands of them! Then everyone discovered they were fake. And now you can't get them graded anymore... that was until CAS took on the task! Now you can get your fakes graded and labeled as fakes!

While you can't view the BATTLE, you can view the pretty pictures I included in my BATTLE...

You already own our souls and all our money... buy US!!!
