What good is collecting if you’ don’t play? A new direction for the Toy Box…


Greetings dear readers! Changing it up around these parts because, well, it’s the right thing to do. Reviews have been great but where’s the fun in those? Plus, they’re a dime a dozen. Soooooooooo as for me and my Toy Box, it’s time to shake it up and put the play things through the paces of play… as it should be!

Taking my own advice and getting serious about PLAY!  I will preface this new journey with one thing though, some of the goodness that pops into my head may be offensive to some and not all of it may be exactly kid friendly. Nothing raunchy or terribly vulgar BUT not always PG.

Your pal, Jim 03/19/17

Connect with me on Facebook and tell all your friends who like this sort of goofiness. And perhaps, we may still learn something along the way.

Take your action figure to work day; like that’s a switch.


I don’t know who came up with this novel idea but “Bravo!” to whoever you are! Being a firm believer in the power of play I whole heartedly endorse this concept. Actually I think everyday should be bring an action figure to work day. You never know who in your office could use the light hearted boost. Who knows you may even unleash a little magic.

In the spirit of the event I took some time to play a little myself. Hearkening back to the early days of the Toy Box and its “Saturday Morning Funnies” photo comics, I now present to you this fun little layout that made my day a little brighter. Plus it gave me a reason to play with my recently reviewed Darth Vader and Figures Toy Company reproduction Robin the Boy Wonder Mego. (click the pic to see the full size strip)

Saturday Morning Funnies – Happy Easter everybody!


Happy Easter everybody! In lieu of the holiday I’m taking this Saturday off from the “Funnies” to spend some time with my family. I hope that you all do the same. Also I would like to proudly proclaim my Christian faith at this time. I’m not doing this to convert or to sway anyone. Your choice is yours alone, even Jesus said that. But for me it wasn’t a bunny that was nailed to that cross nearly 2,000 years ago.

With that said thanks for popping in and I do hope you’ll come back next Saturday where the fun and frivolity will continue to roll out from my “Toy Box”. I’d also like to take this time to point out a favorite verse of mine from the Bible that for me is the Godly mandate for toy collecting.

Luke Ch.18 verses 16 and 17:

16 Then Jesus called for the children and said to the disciples, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children. 17 I tell you the truth, anyone who doesn’t receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.”

I take this to mean this: If you can’t simply believe, you’ll never make it. And for me these, 8-inch little pieces of plastic help me stay in touch with my inner child and remind me that the world around is nowhere near as important as we think it is. It’s only temporary at best, so lighten up. Play. Have some fun. I’ll step off the pulpit now and simply ask all of you to grab up your family and…                   Go Play!                                Jim 04/23/11

President Obama’s NEW and IMPROVED cabinet!


Good morning all! Being that it’s the weekend I’m taking a break from “The Wall” to have a little fun. Plus all of my “The Wall” pics are on my PC at the office. So now without further ado I’d like to share with you some good ole’ fashioned Saturday Morning merriment at the expense of some of my favorite loose action figures that have been hanging out on my “Superman / super hero” themed DVD shelf.  Now, LET’s PLAY!

WASHINGTON- As the President’s popularity continues to diminish the White House announced today that changes were being made to reflect the President’s desire to reconnect with the American people. In a release from the White House Press Office, it was announced today several cabinet positions have been shook up by the Presidents new initiative. In a massive sweep, the President replaced a very large majority of his Cabinet.

In the release the White House issued the following press photo’s to the media to introduce America and the world  to what Preisdent Obama feels is the wisest move of his presidency so far.

Our NEW Secretary of Health and Fitness… 

 
 
"Mr. Karate Hulk is not only the picture of perfect health hes also a glowing example of how fit you can be by eatting your spinach and brushing your teeth."

Our NEW Interior Secretary

"Mr. Tuxedo Hulk is a dapper dresser and well versed in home design."
"Mr. Tuxedo Hulk is a dapper dresser and well versed in home design."

Director of Homeland Security

 
 
"Mr. Cowboy Hulk is the rootinest, tootinest, straight shootinest hombre to ever roam the American prairies. America will never be safer!"

Secretary of State

 
 
"Would you like to be the one to make Mr. Blue Tie Hulk angry. I think not."

The President’s NEW Foriegn Policy Advisor

 
 
“Captain James Tiberius Kirk has proven himself the smoothest talker in the known galaxies. His charisma may be the final piece of the world peace puzzle.”

And today’s final and perhaps most important new appointment, our new Secretary of Defense.

 
 
"I too pity the fool who wishes to bring unneeded jibber jabber against the United States and our allies now that Mr. T has assumed the role he was born for."
"I too pity the fool who wishes to bring unneeded jibber jabber against the United States and our allies now that Mr. T has assumed the role he was born for."

The new appointments assumed their full responsibilities immediately.

America. Safer, stronger and made better for you.

Have a great weekend everybody!
