Action Figure Friday- Masters of the Universe 200X- Zodak!

For those who know me, this little tid-bit of info will come as no big shock. I am a huge Masters of the Universe fan, and more so, a big fan of Zodac, the cosmic enforcer. As I've said on the podcast, Talking Toys with Taylor and Jeff, Zodac, or as I called him, "Mr. Ladybug-head-man", was my first He-Man toy that I had. He was given to me by my cousins one Christmas long ago when I was very young. He was my favorite He-man action figure and he remains one of my favorite characters to date. In 2002-2003, Mike Young Productions re-vamped the cartoon and took a bit different approach with Zodac. First off, they changed his skin tone, gave him tattoos, took away his blaster, and gave him a staff, featured him helmet-less a lot, and dropped the c in his name and put a k in it's spot. There were a good deal of fans that did not like these changes. I actually loved them. I felt that the character got a good bit of attention that he didn't really get years before. When Mattel released his toy to shelves, he sold out quickly and it put me on the hunt for an affordable Zodak action figure for years! Well, I finally got my chance the other day. I got really lucky and was able to buy him off of card and complete. Despite the lack of his one hand being able to hold his staff or blaster, and the fact that his helmet doesn't cover his entire back of head, I truly am happy to have this guy in my collection! He is without a doubt my favorite 200X MOTU action figure. He has both a spring loaded waist, and a attack action spring loaded arm that lets him twist and point! I'm not too keen on having him pointing. I think I would have liked him having a gripping hand in order to hold his blaster. But, since this is Zodak, and I am so happy to have this guy, I'll totally over look that fault.

I purchased a table for the Dallas Comic Con in May. I look forward to seeing all of the familiar faces and hopefully some new people stopping by to chat with us. 

I have posted some new shirt designs in my Cafepress store. Head over to my Cafepress store and get a shirt or a couple! 

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:
