Toy Chest Theater: The McDolorian?

Good lord, this is terrifying.

Terry Lai Toy Photography presents an altered take on The Mandalorian. We’ve got a Dark Knight Joker head, with a full body custom paint job. Terrifying though it may be, the quality of the craftsmanship is undeniable. Ronald McDonald has never looked more intimidating.

Toy Chest Theater: Woody, Buzz, and the Window

By Rob Siebert

This shot from Cyril Mallet Photography reminds me of the shot near the end of Toy Story 2, where Woody and Buzz are looking out the window. Only it obviously has a more melancholy feel to it. I like the layered effect with the window and the rain.

Don’t Touch Daddy’s Toys!

By Rob Siebert
Fanboy Wonder

I’m a toy collector. Action figures in particular. That shouldn’t be too hard to ascertain, given some of the stuff I post. I used to have a lot more shelf space in my office to display them. Be warned, collectors. Once you get a house and a family, shelf space becomes a rare commodity….

I have a vivid memory from a day years before Baby Primary Ignition was born. We had a two friends, a married couple, over with their young son. They knew I was a toy collector. Apparently word had trickled down to their boy, as right when we opened our front door, the little guy made a mad dash for my office. He proceeded to make his way in and out with Ghostbusters (shown above), Power Rangers, superheroes, etc. Our friends looked at me apologetically. But I said something to the effect of: “You can’t have a room full of toys, and then have a kid over and say he can’t play.”

I look back fondly on that moment. That felt like a good one for yours truly.

Now if only I could be as understanding today with Baby Primary Ignition. She’s almost two, and as one might surmise, she’s gotten very grabby…

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and their associated characters have been a staple of Toy Chest Theater from the start. So it’s only natural they get their own collection. The original 1990 film is heavily represented here. But the cartoons get a chance to shine as well…
