Pin-Up of the Day- Lex Luthor in Power Armor!

As I was going through some of my older work, I came across this gem. Many of my friends feel that the Power Armor version of Lex Luthor is just plain ridiculous. They have their reasons. In some ways, I will have to agree with them on some areas of silliness with his armor, but over all, I kind of like his power armor. If you are familiar with Superman, there is a good chance you know of Lex Luthor. He's the villainous brains to Superman's heroic brawn. In the 80's, Lex got a suit of amor that made him virtually invincible in the brawn department. I've heard the arguments on why Lex doesn't need the suit. He out thinks his opponents. After all he is the poster child of evil geniuses for the DC roster. But, the simple fact remains that he is not powerful in body and every once in a while, he just wants to be able to dominate by fist. This suit allows him to do just that! Think about it. If I had a suit that would allow me to punch through a brick wall, I'd wear it everyday. Seriously. The first time I saw this suit was in action figure form. It was Kenner's Super Power's Collection Power Armor Lex Luthor that got me hooked to this bright green armored awesomeness. I never got this toy, though I would always be on the lookout for him as a kid. I did get a power armor Lex Luthor years later with the DC vs Masters of the Universe Classics Skeletor vs. Lex Luthior 2 pack. I even wrote a review about it. I was happy to have this version of Lex after all of these years. It's a good action figure. Now, I said that there was some silliness with his armor. Here it is. My only complaint about his armor is this, I really, nay, REALLY believe that he should have a face mask or something to protect his noggin. What good is being a super genius in an invincible robot suit, if your super brain is unprotected from attack? Think about it. You can also see this piece here

All throughout the month of Movember, I'll be growing a mustache to raise awareness of prostate cancer and I'll be taking donations for the Prostate Cancer Foundation. Do you want to donate?! Head on over to my Movember page to see photos of me struggling to make a blonde mustache show and to donate! 

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. 

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!

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:
