10th Anniversary Giveaway

 If there's anyone that can't believe this thing has been going for 10 years, it's me.

One of the main reasons I started this thing was so I could join in the annual blogger Countdown to Halloween. As much work as it is every year to pull together a post for every day in October, I love doing it and seeing what all the other bloggers do as well.

There's also three dudes I want to mention who were all major influences and inspired me to get off my butt and start this thing. You probably know them all.

Rondall Scott from Strange Kids Club
Shawn Robare from Branded in the 80s 
Reis O'Brien, leader of the Dork Horde 

In addition to these fine gentlemen, I've made a lot of internet pals thanks to the Countdown to Halloween and the former League of Extraordinary Bloggers.

And then there's you! Yeah, you reading this right now! Whether you comment regularly or just quietly enjoy the posts, THANK YOU!

Before we get to the good stuff, let's take a look at the top 10 posts of all time! 
Not really shocking, they are the same top 10 posts from last year. Somehow last year, that League post about spacemen rocketed past the Andy Gibb Poster and continues to hold on to its lead.

The most popular post over the last year was one about Choose Your Own Erotic Adventure books. What can I say, the internet is weird...

Naturally, since I'm celebrating 10 years, I'm giving away a present to one reader!
What's in the box?

All sorts of stuff representing different stuff on the blog. We got Star Wars, LEGO, Hot Wheels, comic books with Loot Crate exclusive covers, a monster card game, a horror movie, and more! And this is just what I scraped together to take a pic. There will be even more stuff in the box!

But Dex, you might say, this looks like a bunch of stuff you had laying around and wanted to get rid of. To which I would reply, do you want free stuff or not?

You can enter to win the stuff (not to be confused with The Stuff) by leaving a comment below and/or reposting my Instagram post. If you do both, you get two entries.

Winner will be announced next week.
Deadline to enter is midnight Eastern Friday July 16.
Contest is only open to US residents. 
Apologies to any readers from far off lands!


  1. I'll admit to not posting many comments on your site but have been around long enough to remember the good old days of toy blogging. Guys like Reis and Jboypacman were both huge inspirations. At the risk of getting all mushy and stuff, I'll just say thanks for the contest!

  2. Congrats on 10 years. Nice to see people keeping on this platform even though technology changes. Thanks for posting.

  3. Congrats on a decade! That's no easy feat in this day and age, but you're fighting the good fight!

    1. Some days I do feel like a dinosaur for sticking with it but I never really set out to do this "for" anyone other than me.
