Check out Josh Hayes, a name Charlie uses for journalism on the internet so that he can say silly personal things without the fear of them being exposed openly. That and to hide from people he knew who he don't want to find him, not no way, not no how.
This seemed funny when I took these pictures two weeks ago. When I looked back at them, I giggled more than ever. Maybe not as much as my giggling at the novel version of Bonerquest I've been writing. As I write stuff down, if I start to giggle to myself, I think I'm doing something right.
This dumb content is probably the more palatable or at least going to be one of the most popular articles I could ever write, despite it being nothing more than taking pictures of toys. This took less than an hour and writing stupid things hopefully less time than that. My biggest pain as a new toys journalist striving for credibility and indie credibility! Oh woe is me, toys are art, it's still real to me dammit! You remember the Godzilla's posing with games? This post is just like that, but with three paragraphs wasting your time up front. That is, if you actually read this part.
But who cares about that! Here are pictures of action figures posing with video games. Ninja Turtles, a pro wrestler, more Dragonball Z toys than I remember buying, and some surprises are all here, posed with video games!
Ninja Turtle bad guys, sixty nining on Bayonetta!
Remember the dinosaur spin off from Street Sharks? Their posing with an original copy of Final Fantasy 7.
A winged Goku and Mega Man 64.
The Emperor from Star Wars watches over Final Fantasy Tactics! He's played this so hard, he has a team of mimes who all mime each others mimes.
This guy was a robot with a weight problem on Dragonball Z. He's trying to work out on this copy of Galerieans I bought off my cousin Josh for five dollars. I doubt anyone ever finished this game to unlock the mode where you could just run around making peoples heads explode, but it was in the game as a feature. If you were a bad enough dude to get to it.
Deborah, who was the devil on Dragonball Z poses with copies of Splatterhouse 2 and Splatterhouse 3.
He-Man from the "serious" version of Masters of the Universe poses with Donetello from the Ninja Turtles 3 movie, whose helmet broke off. They're posing with Vectorman for the Genesis.
Chrono Trigger and a dollar Proto Man, still in the original packaging! Wouldn't want to ruin the collector's value of a dollar toy!
Bishop and Cell lounging with copies of Buck Rodgers Countdown to Doomsday and Vectorman.
Threads of Fate with a troll doll cyborg is a combination of things you never thought you would see together. I make dreams happen.
Mr Satan and Pac Man 2: The Adventures of Pac Man sitting on my old TV. I guess my camera put this in upside down again. Oh well!
The Road Dogg Jesse James, Aidyn Chronciles: The First Mage, A super saiyan Vegeta, and a ninja turtle superhero are the wildest combination I could think of. Man Bat is in the background too.
Venus de Milo the official fifth Ninja Turtle sitting in the box of Kessan, with the game displaying prominently. You can't even tell she's missing an arm. Those vinyl New Mutation turtles popped apart too easy, but they would pop back together easy as well. Kessen looked cool in 2001.
Man-Bat rapes a copy of Silver Surfer.
PEZ dispensers and Chrono Trigger, because why not?
This blurry mess is a couple of Street Sharks and Deadly Premonition.
These showed up upside down again. Doesn't bother me to leave it like that as much as it does for you to complain about though, go on, complain! Waste your time and get laughed at by me! I love it!
