Dude, Wesley Willis died! Can you believe that?
The sad thing is, only one person I've talked to has known, off the top of his head, who Wesley Willis was. In short, a big crazy black guy that recorded "music" because it was what he loved to do; but he was really much more than that. For more information on him, check out what the Washington Post had to say: http://www.oafe.net/cgi-bin/forums/ikonboard.cgi?act=ST;f=4;t=41
Now on to the toys.
In an effort to get as many SDCC Exclusive reviews into our Anniversary month as possible, we've really been burning through the reviews this week. If you skipped a day of OAFEry this week, you probably missed something cool.
The week started off with a woman who just loves to get wet!!! Now, if this message has made it past your spam filters, you can check out the review at http://www.oafe.net/yo/tr2wet.html
Rustin Parr once again graced us with a fine Con Exclusive review, this time in the guise of (what turned out to be) a 4" videogame star. And damned if reading his review didn't make me kick myself for passing on this figure when I saw it for $8: http://www.oafe.net/rustin/gungrave.html
Palisades got a mention (and OAFEnet got a warm reception on the message boards) when we uncaged a review of their own tiny black-shirted roadie: http://www.oafe.net/yo/muptani.html
It's two, two, two reviews in one! Space is a concern for any collector, and its Art Asylum to the rescue. Learn all about their two Minimate two-packs at http://www.oafe.net/yo/mmmexcl.html
Hey, history repeats itself! Or something like that, at least, since Tuesday's review was a lot like Friday's. If you only click on one Tomb Raider review this week, make it this one!!! http://www.oafe.net/yo/tr2lara.html Primarily because it's got a link back to the other. Did you like my "movie announcer voice," there?
Not every con exclusive is a home run. Some, in fact, downright reek. Why'd I buy it? Because I'm a sucker, that's why. http://www.oafe.net/yo/devbc.html
What's better than a toy you can really clobber someone with? That's right, nothing. What do you get when you cross a Stikfas with HGH and the steel industry? You get Thursday's review: http://www.oafe.net/yo/titanium.html
Can Mattel's idiocy do what Skeletor never could? Are the Masters of the Universe domed? What am I _talking_ about? Decide for yourself at
