I don’t seem to be buying many toys these days — I’m so picky that it’s a rare figure that meets my impossible standards — but I maintain a keen interest in toys, toy culture and the creativity of toy fans.

I know some of you are rolling your eyes right now. I’m well aware not everyone on this planet is as fond of these playthings as I am.
