Wanted to spotlight a few places that have been a source of entertainment, information, and inspiration for a while now. Recently they have spread the word on Infestors, and provided some in-depth reviews, complete with wonderful photography, and some critique.
I respect these guys a lot, and always enjoy their work. Just wanted to say a little thank you, and hopefully pass along these great spots to some new people who haven't ran across them yet.
I will list these guys in order of the Infestors reviews. Each site is equally worthwhile in their own area.
First we have Little Weirdos.
You can get lost for hours, even days on this site. You will likely go broke.... after you discover many toy lines you didn't know existed, and now can't live without. Remembering a mini figure from your childhood, but can't put a name to? Yeah, it's probably here. Come back often, there's always something new and awesome on here!
Second we will visit the University of M.U.S.C.L.E.
This place is exactly what it says. The approach of this site is that of a university. You will be schooled on all things M.U.S.C.L.E. and everything in its orbit. On the far fringe of that are independent toys, mostly of the mini figure variety. That's where the Infestors fit in. Again, you can get lost forever on this site as well. There's plenty to read through, you will learn lots! There is even a bit to get you a good start on a Monday... Professor Terry typically submits a Monday Morning M.U.S.C.L.E. Musing
The proprietor of this particular site has gone and offered a free set of Infestors, with minimal effort on your part. Yep, you can win a free set, by simply spreading the word about Infestors via social media, and other ways. Hit up the link for full details.
Last, but by no means least Nerditis.
This guy reviews all kinds of toys. Just like the other two sites, I am honored to have Ironhause and my work featured here. His reviews are always honest, and like Little Weirdos, his photography is always fun. UofM takes a more clinical approach, which makes sense given the format. I am thankful for this guy's reviews as they've helped point me in the right direction on plenty of occasions. Dodged a few bullets as well.
All three of these spots are very informative, and different. I would bookmark the lot, and visit often!

Infestors ExileIn light of this new directive, Moxley devised an off-site facility under the guise of survival and combat training. This was the story he fed his colleagues. Working quickly, using grunts to shuffle equipment, he built a satellite facility. Meanwhile he carried out his orders while the others carried on with their work. Once all was in place, he had his top specimens transferred for training. Remaining research in hand, he lit the facility up.
We pick up several decades later. Moxley has continued his work all along... working underground, creating a society, a race. The Infestors ranks had grown to legions. They spent more, and more time above ground. Finding allies amongst the Mutants, and learning of the Hunters. Still unknown to the Hunters, some have made prey of the predators. Ghosts of the desert.

Infestors were developed in the same vain as the Mutants. This was a sub-group originally charged with increasing survivability. Eyes turned to roaches, because of their ability to adapt. Military applications started to be explored as the project developed. Momentum had built on this project, plenty of variations were near perfection.
Once full integration into the main objective was complete... meaning the necessary genetic components of adaptation had been combined with "the ones"... the remaining side projects were given a cease and desist.
The order came down to Moxley, the head geneticist for the roach/insect isolation and integration project. The properties had been attained, and everything was running smoothly. All further research and development was unnecessary. The facility and all it's inhabitants were to be incinerated. They wanted no trace of their history. This wasn't going to be like the early days. They weren't going to turn these out to the wastelands, to sink or swim. The Mutants that were let loose proved to be more capable of living off the land than originally thought. They had even reproduced, formed tribes. If the roaches are set free... with all their added capabilities? The results could prove disastrous.
