Action Figure Friday- Gripper!

When Jeff and I recorded the Rambo episode for The Talking Toys with Taylor and Jeff Podcast, Jeff realized how much I like this guy and snagged him for my Birthday.  So far, he is my only Rambo: Force of Freedom action figure, and already I feel as though my collection is complete! He is perfect! Gripper comes with a machete, five uzis, two bullet belts, one beretta pistol, a uzi shield with motorized backpack, an ankle holster, and a belt with holster. That's a lot of weapons for one dude! Another cool thing about this guy is that he does not break Jeff's number one rule. He is able to hold all of his accessories. And... and he comes with a yellow bionic hand and a eye patch! This dude has seen some action! 
When the Rambo: Force of Freedom toy line by Coleco came to market, I missed out on almost all of the toys. I had one item, an 81 mm Mortar, which Skeletor and General Spidrax used quite often. Now that I have Gripper, I kind of wish I had that mortar again for this guy. I think it would go well with him. I don't know. I might hold out to get a twin mounted 7.62 mm machine gun instead. So many decisions, so little money...

I do have a table for the Sci-Fi Expo on February 9-10th. I'll be there with some new work to sell, my pin-up girl posters, the newest issue of Xenex the Bug Man and custom toys. Jeff will be there with me selling some Marvindog media merchandise and taking toy memory recordings! Stop by, say,"hi", and show your support. I hope to see you there!

I have all Xenex the Bug Man comic books available for print on demand. You can see that listing here on my store's tab for comic books. 

Just to let you know all know, I am taking commissions. If you would like to commission me for original artwork, head over to the commissions tab in store to see how. 

If you have not heard about the Podcast called, "Talking Toys with Taylor and Jeff", then it's time I let you know! Jeff and I are on the show where we talk about toys! (Go figure, I mean Go action figure!) Seems simple enough. We pick out a toy line to discuss in each show. We share our childhood memories, our favorite five, and talk about the one toy in the line that got away. Jeff talks about how he cherished his toys and I talk about how they ended up in the garden! 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! The shows are great! If you are interested in what we got, go to  and give us a listen. You can subscribe to the shows on itunes and get up to date info on upcoming shows on facebook:
