Eternia Is Everywhere - Masters of the Universe Fan Art Project

A beautiful quality screenshot from the wonderful quality video you are about to watch.

A little while ago, I came across a guy on eBay who was selling lovely photos of vintage Masters of the Universe figures. I was intrigued to say the least!

I'll let him explain it himself:

(excerpt from his eBay listings) "My name is Marlon. I am a hobby artist and realized my childhood dream in 2011-2013 creating my version of the beloved MotU 80´s advertisement leaflets we all love. In total I took 87 pictures of the vehicles and characters of the MotU 80s toy-line all over Germany and France.

All my pictures are framed and ready for display! Only 1 produced and signed by the artist and together with the GPS-Co-ordinates where it was taken and a picture on the other side  of the displayed motive showing the very place in human perspective.

The whole idea is not new and some of you made similar projects. Anyhow it was and is my dream that all of my 87 pictures will find a new home somewhere in the world. Maybe with you?"

Before long I had some of my very own, you can watch what happened in real time here:

You can visit (and buy) Marlon's remaining one-off pieces right here on eBay and take a look at the Eternia is Everywhere Facebook page here if you're interested in viewing more of his work with some history and commentary behind them.

One thing is for sure, thanks to artists like Marlon: Eternia really is everywhere!

DC Universe Classics Green Arrow Figure Video Review (Mattel)

It's 38 degrees celsius today on Hoard World (which is just over 100 degrees fahrenheit for people that don't do celsius), so it's important that you keep your fluids up, stay out of the sun and, where necessary, share your refreshments with your pals, just like I am here with Five Dollar Hulk. I'm lovely.

No, you're not imagining things. This is already the second blog entry of 2015: one in which I continue to wow the YouTube-o-sphere with more poor quality gonzo-style toy videos that involve elongated attempts to open a simple action figure package, surprise cats and royalty free rap music.

I can't believe you're not already watching it.

In case you can't be bothered, here's two pictures that I lazily took with my phone and no enhancements which give you some idea of what a Green Arrow action figure looks like; almost opened and out of the pack.

At this rate, I expect I will be the next Pixel Dan in no time.

Stay cool.

yr pal,


Total Heroes Ultra Firestorm comes with three interchangeable heads
plus a floating transparent Professor Stein head. That's just about the
best accessory that Firestorm could ever have. I love it.

Nothing says Happy 2015 like a blurry screenshot from the Hoard World 2013 NYE fireworks video.

Happy New Year everybody!

I hope, whether you've already had NYE or are about to, or are still having it, that this finds you in good health during a celebratory time.

I have a few resolutions for Hoard World in 2015 that you might care to know about but first let's take a look at NYE 2014 on Hoard World. It wasn't a huge production but it did result in Hoard World's very first Video Manifesto.

A drunk video manifesto. As (sort-of) requested by YOU.

Screenshot from 1 of 2 videos that contained a shadowy figure and a drunken manifesto.

The original text that introduced the video manifesto on Facey B.
