Dubious DC Pricing
Posted by: Casimir at 4:56 am on Sunday, July 8, 2012

I suppose it’s safe to say I had a full-on rant prepared for this blog, but I felt a picture might serve my purposes better: I’m okay with Croc being $50. He’s easily got enough plastic in him to make two normal figures. But Freeze? Really? Don’t even get me started on “Titan Joker” being […]


KnightsEnd Batman
Posted by: Casimir at 7:51 am on Friday, June 15, 2012

I don’t often purchase figures from shady overseas sellers, but if there’s a chance a figure I want might not see a domestic release, I’m all for it. Thus is the case with Mattel’s repaint “KnighsEnd” Batman. With the changes in Mattel’s DC lines announced a few weeks ago, the remaining two-packs due at Toys […]


Meeting Mr. Conroy
Posted by: Casimir at 9:37 am on Thursday, May 24, 2012

Some time has passed, and I supposed I’ve cooled off. Though I’m still angry at how things played out. It’s time to tell the story. I rarely go to local toy/comic/sci-fi shows in Dallas. As a general rule, we haven’t had any good shows since the Fantasy Fair went the way of the dodo years […]


Harley and Me
Posted by: Casimir at 4:19 am on Sunday, January 29, 2012

To paraphrase a famous rabbit, “Harley Quinn, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. One one thousand. Two one thousand. Three one thousand…” Seriously, what explains Harley Quinn’s enduring and growing popularity? More importantly, why am I so infatuated with a fictional cartoon character? My loving and tolerant wife has asked this […]


Making It Real: Tyke
Posted by: Casimir at 11:51 am on Saturday, January 28, 2012

Since I started sharing my customs on-line, I’ve met some amazing people, and made some great friends. I can recall some instances more than a decade ago when some young punk was pestering me with questions about customs, and kept insisting I look at his creations. Well, that “young punk” turned out to be the […]


The Retiring Mr. Lucas
Posted by: Casimir at 10:16 am on Saturday, January 21, 2012

George Lucas has announce his retirement from “blockbuster” movie-making. Again. Those of us who have followed his career closely know he’s made this promise before, and instead we get less-than-stellar offerings like Crystal Skull, the prequels, and Howard the Duck. But this time might be different. In the past, when this promise was made, it […]


Dan Gates Making It Real: Crushin’ a Guy
Posted by: Casimir at 7:31 pm on Tuesday, December 6, 2011

For many years now, I’ve had the honor of knowing Crushinaguy, otherwise known as Dan Gates. We’ve collaborated on some projects, and he continues to be a source of creative inspiration to me. I should also mention than many of the opinions and tips he shares below are so like my own, I feel like […]


Airmax Making It Real: Airmax
Posted by: Casimir at 3:49 am on Monday, November 14, 2011

It’s time for another edition of “Making It Real.” This time I had the opportunity to spend a few minutes with fellow customizer (and source of inspiration) Airmax.  Let’s get right to it! First, what’s your secret identity? What does Airmax do when he’s not customizing toys? I actually work at a toy company – […]


No, I Will Not Create A Custom For You
Posted by: Casimir at 9:50 am on Tuesday, November 8, 2011

As a general rule, I don’t accept commissions for custom figures. The text on the Inanimate Objects “contact” page says as much. (The actual text changes from time to time, but the general gist is “no.”) Despite this, I continue to receive e-mails on a regular basis asking if I’ll accept a commission. Some recent […]


Making It Real: Bill Burns
Posted by: Casimir at 4:32 am on Monday, October 17, 2011

An introduction is in order. By the time I hopped onto the internet in 1997, I had already been “customizing” as we now define the hobby for a few years. In 1998, I discovered other people were doing the same thing, sharing information via the ‘net. One of those early pioneers to share his work […]
