Have you ever bought somebody’s old toothbrush? No? Well, you clearly have more sense than me. I like nothing more than plastic that has been formed into the shape of a favorite character. Figural products are a passion of mine, and I recently added this beauty to the Batman collection… This toothbrush has eluded me […]
Warning: This article exemplifies the pot calling the kettle black. I am a collector. I have spent way too much money on way too much stuff, but I am not alone.
