  1. Hi! I understand this is kind of off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does operating a well-established blog such as yours take a large amount of work?
    I am completely new to blogging however I do write in my diary everyday.
    I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and thoughts online.

    Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for brand new
    aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

  2. Okay I think I will include my input on this subject what little it may be.
    Toy of the Year: I have to go with Mantenna because personal nostalgia.
    Best Toy Line: Star Wars Black because that’s the only one I actually own any figures from.
    Best Male Figure: I vote Mantenna again because I don’t care about the others.
    Best Female Figure: Elizabeth from Bioschock Infinite.
    Best Indy Toy: uh? pass.
    Best Paint: Spider Gremlin
    Best Accessory: ?
    Best Exclusive: I hate it when figures are exclusive.
    Most Improved: I have been out of the toy market for too long to judge this one.
    And I’m going to skip the rest.
