RECYLED MATERIAL: ZOMBIE SUPERMAN KNOCK-OFF by Unknown Manufacturer.


The review included in this blog entry was originally published way back in July 2013 on ThEpicReview.com for their Resident Evil Zombie Celebration Week. It was written specifically for ThEpic Review site so may contain specific references to the site etc; For example my mention of whether Zombie Supes is "epic" or "great" or "good" towards the end is a reference to ThEpicReview's ratings system. Due to the age of the article, some of the information contained within may have dated somewhat (like there aren't as many of these knock-offs floating around on eBay as when this was first written). You can check out the originally published version on ThEpic Review's site here.

RECYCLED MATERIAL: MARVEL SELECT ZOMBIE CAPTAIN AMERICA (FROM MARVEL ZOMBIES) by Diamond Select Toys


The review included in this blog entry was originally published way back in July 2013 on ThEpicReview.com for their Resident Evil Zombie Celebration Week. It was written specifically for ThEpic Review site so may contain specific references to the site etc. Due to the age of the article, some of the information contained within may have dated somewhat; although this figure came out in 2007 so was already practically a billion years old before it was "reviewed" in 2013. Much like most of us wish George Lucas hadn't, I have also made a handful of changes and edits to this piece; so this is a"Special Edition" if you will. You can check out the originally published version on ThEpic Review's site here.

SDCC 2015 TOY REVEALS: THE STUFF I LIKED.


If you're inclined to pay attention to things like the San Diego Comic Con and its subsequent reveals of nice things you might like to buy in the future, then you might have already seen a lot of what I'm about to show you from other sites.

But there's literally so much stuff on show, a lot of times stuff slips through the cracks. Hoard World isn't just an outlet for me to vent and share my stupid pictures with a few hundred people from time to time. And it's certainly not a viable business. More often than not, it's a public service. Or so I tell myself.

This is one of those Public Servicing times. I already know what stuff I liked from SDCC. I have filed pictures of it forever in my brain meats so I can obsess over said items for the next 12 months or more.

This is for you. The people. And at the end of it, I'm going to offer up some advice that might help those of you who have a genuine fear of "missing out."

Let's begin, shall we?

HOARD WORLD: YEAR THREE - HOW IS THIS THING EVEN STILL GOING? I MEAN, SERIOUSLY.


Monday July 6th 2015 is the third anniversary of the shenanigans that have become known as "Hoard World", so, as per usual, I take this magical moment in time to cast my weary eye-stalks back over the last 12 months. Let's see if we can't learn a thing or two, eh?

Incidentally, as you can no doubt tell by the assorted 3rd Birthday pics that accompany this retrospective blog entry, we had a great time. With Giant Cake. And over-sized celebratory candles. Thanks for asking.
