Action Figure Carrying Cases

I've got a new book in the works, and at the moment the project is funding on Kickstarter. Action Figure Carrying Cases is a 160-page hardcover dedicated to action figure carrying cases of the seventies, eighties, and nineties, and if you're at all interested please take a peek at the project page.

The book features over sixty carrying cases, ranging from simple vinyl boxes to elaborate plastic contraptions. I'd never really thought about the variety of shapes and sizes of carrying cases until I started this book.

Transforming Conversations, Universe Expanded, and Action Figures Not Included

More progress on various book projects!

  • Universe Expanded, my current book project, is now live on Kickstarter. Take a look at the project page to see how I'm focusing on a single subline of Kenner Star Wars action figures from the nineties. This 96-page hardcover is shaping up great!
  • Transforming Conversations, the next third party Transformers book, continues to come together. I've got a handful of excellent interviews completed and more at various stages of development. This book will continue where Transforming Collections and Transforming Expectations left off.
  • Each Sold Separately and Action Figures Not Included are both completed and have shipped to the Kickstarter backers of those projects. Each book is a 64-page full-color hardcover, and between the two I dig deep into the action figure marketing tricks and techniques of the eighties. If you were a fan of G.I. Joe, Transformers, Star Wars, and other great eighties toys then you won't want to miss these books.

If you have any questions at all please don't hesitate to contact me. And, as always, you can find more toy fun at www.battlegrip.com where I chatter on randomly about toys of the past, present, and future. Thank you for your continued support and encouragement; we need more books about toys and I plan to keep creating these as long as you guys keep enjoying them.

Transforming Expectations Now Available, Action Figures Not Included Launched

For all who missed out on the Kickstarter project for the sequel to Transforming Collections the book is available now at BattleGrip. The finished book came in at 112-pages and covers over 80 different third party Transformers toys. The physical size of 8-inches by 8-inches was continued over from Transforming Collections, making this shelve quite nicely with the original title.

Action Figures Not Included

My latest book project, a companion to Each Sold Separately, has launched on Kickstarter and closes on Friday, January 2. This book comes in as a 64-page hardcover and the new Kickstarter project includes a reward level to get both this and Each Sold Separately all at once. I've learned a lot about these book projects over the last few years and want to thank all of you for your support of Transforming Collections back in 2012.
