100,001

On May 11, 2010, I posted a review covering some of the items from Marauder, Inc. It was just a simple review, mainly my random thoughts and a bunch of pictures.

It didn't take long before I noticed an odd trend for this silly bit of nonsense - my traffic was picking up and from all over the world.

After a little research, I noticed my post getting more and more hits from all over the world. People were searching for "types of guns" or "pictures of guns" and my silly post popped up in searches.

Today was a milestone, I guess. The hits for this post just went past 100,000. 100,001 to be exact.

One crazy silly post about tiny toy guns and I'm a world-wide sensation!

The Legendary Tom Brooks indeed.

A Tale of Two Jinxes

I seriously never believed that I would ever have any exclusive from San Diego Comic Con. Ever. I don't even remember when SDCC was, maybe just a few weeks ago.
Hasbro had three GI Joe exclusives at SDCC - the Shockwave HISS tank and two versions of Jinx, one red uniform and one white uniform. Usually, any excess stock goes to HasbroToyShop.com and usually sells out pretty quickly.
I missed the first round of releases on HTS and I wasn't really too concerned. The next time HTS opened up the releases, I was sitting in front of my computer and jumped right on HTS.
Amazing! There they were - ripe and ready for purchase! I would have liked the Shockwave HISS tank, but just couldn't justify the price. The Jinx figures, on the other hand, I jumped on them. Plus I ordered a Derpy My Little Pony for my daughter. Yes, for my daughter! I'm not a Bronie!
I suppose it took about a week and a half for them to finally show up. It took me a few days to even get to them to open the two Jinx figures. That's finally done and I've got pictures ready for a review.

And no, I won't be reviewing Derpy.
