Life In Plastic: A Look Back

Since I couldn’t think of a good April Fools’ gag this year (besides, last year’s is gonna be hard to match), why don’t we take a look at something else?  EMBARRASSING OLDER WORK.

My first two toy reviews ever were published on Michael Crawford’s Review Site in 2005.  The very first was for some Marvel figures, but today we are looking at my second.

Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith

Mustafarian Guard

Well.  I still own the figure.  I still like it.  The articulation bothers me a little more now.  My writing style has certainly matured since then, though I can see that I still fall back on a lot of the same writing crutches as before.  But the main thing?

  1. Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the images on this blog loading?
    I’m trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

  2. My brother suggested I would possibly like this website.
    He used to be entirely right. This post actually made my day.
    You can not consider simply how much time I had
    spent for this information! Thanks!

  3. I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.
    In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as
    you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.
