No art for the week of Christmas. Perhaps you’ll get ALL of the remaining Wizard’s Lesson next week. I’m gonna be finishing it up during my days off.

I did you up a nice Toys in the Bookstacks. Please enjoy.

I really enjoy doing my Toys in the Bookstacks, and I must admit that I loved finding the books for this one. I don’t know as though I’ve ever done one that wasn’t intended to just be funny before.

The moral is simply that I made you something.

Love,

benjamin

This is seriously one of my favorite Toys in the Bookstacks in ages.

As always, click the pic to make it bigger. Now please release your geek–this one can level you up–and enjoy:

“Uh, Michael? Did you see the name of the guy who wrote THIS book?”

“I need beer, Ted.”
“Me too, Michael.”

Over the last, ermm…lots of years, I’ve been doing a regular thing where I have a preposterous amount of fun taking my toys into the bookstacks and finding appropriate books for them.

The setups vary from comic book humor, to pop culture humor, to NOBODY WILL GET THAT JOKE, BENJAMIN.

I have some new ones planned out, so I thought I’d familiarize people with some of my older ones.

Also, if all goes well, you’ll have the first splash page of The Wizard’s Lesson tomorrow morning. Here are Part 1, Parts 2 & 3, Parts 4 & 5, and Part 6.

More Toys in the Bookstacks behind the cut.

Now go hug somebody.

Love,

benjamin

[EDIT: Hello, Cracked readers! Please enjoy a look at my other bootleg toys, a collection that’s always expanding. Also, you bastards have forced me to consider updating this site. Fine. Jerks.]

Hello, kids.  Two awesome things today.

I have four tattoos, all of them in some way geeky, and I just got one touched-up two days ago:

I got the Flash ring tattoo on my finger touched-up by Rick Kutch at No Regrets Tattoos

It’s Barry’s ring, and my allegiance is ultimately with Wally, but much love to the whole Flash Family.

The man who did the job is Rick Kutch at No Regrets Tattoos in Champaign.

I also just got an incredible bootleg toy for my collection, this time from Greece. It is totally ridiculous and brilliantly strange.

Little Pluckies Ninja Protects knockoff TMNT gun toy 2

Yep. Looks like they finally skipped past the “melee weapons” thing and tried a laser gun. Results? Shredder’s dead, baby. Shredder’s dead.

Fits my hand like a dream. God damn, no wonder those Little Pluckies Protect! Look a this bad boy in action!

Nadja fires the Little Pluckies Ninja Protects knockoff TMNT gun toy
Don’t worry, she’s not terrified of its awesome sparking power but rather I took the photo in the dark and this gun is bright. [EDIT: “And loud.” – Nadja]

The new Fuckbrain Comix is waiting to be scanned and should be ready for posting next week.

See you then,

Please to enjoy the latest addition to Stone Robot Enterprise's knockoff toy wall: Darth Vadar (pronounced vuh-DAR)

I always figure that every listing deserves a little loving, right?

Click the pic to head over and read 'em.

"Galvatron denies allegations of a set-up plot involving Michael Bay."


So, you remember Jim Magee, the guy who customized the awesome Android figure? This little fella that ended up at Stone Robot Enterprises with me and [livejournal.com profile] fairyarmadillo?

I dunno, this just looks like rusty water

Well, Jim's been hard at work and he now has a place where you can buy his customs.

I mean, the Tankdroid has already sold...


and 4 1

...but there's a fully-armed robot...

sq1

...a custom Bambaboss that's he's turned into something awesome...

Bamba II 2i

Bamba II 6

Bamba II 5

...and even a delightfully modded Super Sucklord Gay Empire figure to whom he gave a full sexy dancer look. Yes, that's a tease to make you go look. :P

And you know what? The more things sell, the closer we may be to seeing something like this up there....


zom storm 6

And you don't want to miss THAT boat.

Go check 'em out and keep up with his work over on Flickr.

Love,

X-Men Mutant Play Shave Set at Winter Wheat Antiques

It was 50% off, too. So tempting to go back for it....

So I was randomly poking around Flickr one day and I saw this:


Android 3

And I was all "HOLY FUCKING SHIT THAT IS AWESOME." Not just because I love my Droid phone and the Android system's little mascot, but also because "HOLY FUCKING SHIT THAT IS AWESOME."

I dropped the fellow a line about how sweet this Android custom is, and he told me that it was his first custom ever. Look at that thing again. That was his first custom and this is what they look like au natural:



Jim and I continued to converse and then...well, he decided that he needed to send it to me. For free.

To quote The Judge, "THIS WILL NOT DO!"

A bit of cross-Atlantic talking--mostly me telling him that his stuff is too good to not be SOLD to people--and we arrived at a price that was pleasing to both of us. He then told me that he would only take out the cost of the Droid figure and donate the rest of the money to Shelter.

Yeah, you go ahead and read that last sentence again.

NOW...I don't think that sort of scenario is ever going to happen again, because now I'm here to plug his work so that he can have a bit of supplemental income for what he describes as just a hobby. And you're going to help me out, yes?

He has never done a commission before, but look at his stuff. He has some non-rust customs that will be up soon, since he's branching out from his current streak of customizing Ashley Wood designs.

I'll keep you updated, but in the mean time, tell your friends about this awesome customizer you heard about, one who is modest and generous...and who needs to start making some reasonable money off of his creations.

And now, a small story about my new Droid, which arrived yesterday. :D


---------


"Somebody said there was some juice for my batteries over here...."

Somebody said there was some juice for my batteries over here

His story continues after this cut:


LOOK OUT, DROID! That stuff is for adults! HUMAN adults! )



Go dig Jim's stuff, tell people about Jim's stuff, and then get back to work, slackers.

Love,

benjamin

Looking at options for doing more Toys in the Bookstacks.

Enjoying this FUCK YEAH, KNOCK-OFFS video. Hilarity abounds.

Smooches,

...and it seems that comic books have been behind my most recent geek-outs. I wonder why.

What should I be getting geeky about next?

Anyway, here's a two-photo Toys in the Bookstacks epic for you.
It might be vaguely funny if you're a comic geek. There are even three levels of comic geek difficulty I think. And I thought it was funny, but I find trees funny.

I need different medication.

Some old photo-links is still busted, from the old Flickr Employees Can Be Douchebags incident, and I can't seem to find the original posts for these two Toys in the Bookstacks, the first two I ever did.

So here, enjoy:

"FUCKING FINALLY!"


"FINALLY!"

"I don't think I'd fit in the ring...but those dudes DO look delicious. In a purely culinary, rather than homosexual, way, of course..."

"I don't think I'll fit in the ring."

So, if shopping therapy is supposed to help you when you're kinda down, what sort of therapy is supposed to help when you run out of money?

Stripe from Gremlins, David from Lost Boys, and Anguirus from Godzilla toys

And yes, of course they're coming out of their packages. I'm a collector of toys, not a toy collector.

Also, I had delicious ramen. Not only was it cooked for me by a cuttlefish...

Cham Pong Noodle Soup

...but when I was done, I read the ingredients:

MY STOMACH WAS LIKE AN UNDERSEA NOAH'S ARK!

Six animals in one bowl? YES, PLEASE.

EDIT:

Fucking hilarious video about a truly touching friendship:
