I just plowed through issues 1 through 30 of the old Wizard off-shoot Toyfare, a magazine produced by immature frat-boy about action figures. At the time it started publication (around 1997, action figures were becoming a bigger speculator boom than comics, trading cards, and pogs combined, and new action figures were being treated like works of art, even the trashy ones of boob war comic characters.
Twisted Mego Theatre (fan scans of the 1st 15 issues under the link) was the predecessor to, believe it or not, Robot Chicken. It’s a bit of a mess of storytelling, trying more for gags or wit, and only occasionally succeeding, but there is a certain charm to watching these 1970’s plastic representations of famous superheroes and TV personalities making jackasses of themselves.
After 2 and a half years of reading Toyfare, I realized I didn’t need to be so obsessive about action figures (though I didn’t really stop being so until four or five years later) and that the magazine was only encouraging me negatively, so I dropped it (also dropped, likely, for financial considerations) and never looked back. I don’t even know if it’s still published.
