My Little Pez Collection

Leave a comment

One of my Twitter followers may get a kick out of this, as he blogs about Pez (so into it that the blog’s title swears) and looks for other people who collect Pez dispensers. Now I’ve never been a big Pez collector. At the time I picked most of these up I was working at a telemarketing company, and it’s as boring as it sounds. I lasted about two months before they let me go. She was a fair boss, but things didn’t work for me there. I’m sure you really didn’t care, but I only bring it up because of why I picked them up, which was to have something between calls to stave off hunger. I was actually known by one co-worker because of the Pez dispensers.

I wanted a bit of variety so I picked up a few different ones, and for fun I thought I’d share them with you. And Jason. Besides, the toy reviews seem to get the most traffic, although I should do some more organizing, too.

Toy Report: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2.0

Sorry if my thoughts seem a bit unfocused in this. I’m either suffering from an allergy resurgence or a cold. Either way I’m a bit fuzz-brained today.

"Uh, Don...?" "I've been sick."

So last week we looked at the original Ninja Turtles toys from Playmates, or at least Donatello. This week we look at the remakes figures. In the early 2000’s 4Kids Entertainment teamed with Mirage Studios on a modern update to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon. This was closer to the original comic book, although with even more of a science fiction bend to it. Personally I prefer it to the original. It was more serious in tone, and the animation was a higher quality (even with the occasionally obvious computer assist).

Playmates continued to hold the figure license and produced updated versions of the Turtles figures. So how much did they learn between lines? Sadly, not enough.
