Sketch Card of the Day- Scorpia!

Scorpia Sketch Card by Taylor Lymbery

Our sketch card of the day is Scorpia! Let me start off by saying that I don't like scorpions. I'm a bit of an arachnephobe. So characters like Scorpia and Webstor should make me weary of them, but that's not the case.  I'm not sure why that is. Scorpia is a part of the She-Ra universe. There's not a lot of information on her that I could find so I'll go off of what I remember. Scorpia was featured on the She-Ra Princess of Power cartoon. She is a part of the Evil Horde. Like the name indicates, she is part scorpion. Now this sketch card is based a little off of some fan art of her look if she was included in the 200X series. Personally, after seeing the one episode of the 200X cartoon that has Hordak and his basic MOTU crew beautifully envisioned, I would have loved to see her design tackled by the same cartoon designers. No official toy has been made of her.  At first I was not going to do this sketch card due to the fact that she did not have a toy made of her, but this card was a commission. The purchase was made by a good acquaintance of mine by the name of Keith E. Kimball. So, as I did some research on her to learn some background, I stumbled across this. There are a few toys made of her by Lulu Berlu. Lulu Berlu also made the custom bootleg run of Shadow Weavers on the Masters of the Universe cards. So, in the long run, I didn't break my silent rule of sketch cards for toys. I want to thank Keith for the commission, cause I would probably have never stumbled onto this cool nugget of information! I'm not sure if Mattel plans of making her in the Classics line or not. I kind of hope that they do, but I'm not holding my breath. But... if they do, I'll probably try to get one. You can also see this art piece here.

There's been an update to the store tabs on both Xenex the Bug Man, and this site. All of the print on demand issues, cafepress stores and commissions info will be under the new store tab on both this site and the Xenex the Bug Man site. Hopefully this page makes shopping a bit easier. Go and check it out! 

I just updated the Xenex the Bug Man website with rather grand news that the long awaited issue 4 is now up for order. It's a great looking comic book! Head on over to the Bug Man site and see what I'm talking about!
Just a quick update: I did go ahead and purchase a table for the Fan Days Convention in October. So I will be there (given that I don't have another mishap).
Now, you mighty be asking what this Marvin Dog media is. I've got answers. I had been working with a good friend of mine, Jeff McGee, before I got sick on designing logos and banners for a podcast that I am on and logos and banners of podcasts that other friends are on. I have listened to all of the shows so far and they are great! Jeff and I are on the show where we talk about toys! (Go figure, I mean Go action figure!) That show is called Talking toys with Taylor and Jeff. The other two shows are The pilot episode, where Jeff and Josh Taylor break down the Pilot Episode in TV series, and The Loosely Based Podcast where Brynna and Jeff compare the book to the movie adaptation! Again, the shows are great! If you are interested in what we got, go to  and give us a listen.
