New Links Section

Over to the right you should find a new section of links labelled "Other Collectors." I thought it would be interesting to link to other amateur websites dealing with the hobby. I know most of the people running the sites and they are each very different looks at the field.

http://marvellegends.net/
is probably the best organized photo archive of Marvel Legends figures on the web. Fwooshnet's archive is pretty good but it has holes here or there. Waiting, the man in charge, is an inescapable "elder statesman" kind of figure on the various Marvel Legends-themed boards, and he really knows his stuff.

http://www.minimatescentral.com/
is the website of Divebomb, and it's *the* destination for fans of Art Asylum's minimates after the Art Asylum messageboard itself. With interesting and insightful reviews of pretty much all minimates, Divebomb is the unofficial archivist of the minimate genre.

http://jattapake.blogspot.com/ is a brand new site from Art Asylum board member Jatta Pake, this one devoted to Minimates as well. However he is not content to simply re-cover Divebomb's ground, but instead JattaPake's website is shaping up to be a combination news source and humorous look at the figures.

http://talesofthenorth.blogspot.com/ isn't focused on any one product line, but is a more personal site chronicling one fans enjoyment of the hobby. Should lead to interesting things.

I'll feature more web sites as time goes on, but do yourself a favor and take a minute or two to check out the websites featured above, they're worth the effort.

Hey blue sparrow,

I follow your blog and as a fellow blogger would like to tell you about mine. I started it a few months ago and it's called Superhero Sightings, http://supersightings.blogspot.com. I post about toy, comic or movie news related to Marvel and DC characters. Thought you might oblige me and mention it also. No pressure though. Thanks.
