Kiss me Patrick Swayzeeeeeee!

This week, the excellent people at Super 7 Toys replaced my Bride of Frankenstein figure because the first one’s arm broke right off. Then I got goofy with joy and decided to have her demand a kiss from Patrick Swayze … Continue reading

Masters of the Universe

I was a college student when Masters of the Universe came and went circa 1987. Obviously I didn’t bother to see it. There were other more interesting things to do, namely acquiring a taste for beer (aka, drinking it without make … Continue reading

Poor Willie

He doesn’t know that these porta’ potties aren’t hooked up to a sewage line to eliminate what Homer has done. In the real world, behold a couple of the new Simpsons series two minifigs I have acquired mashed up with an … Continue reading

The HMS Van Halen

Wubba wubba dub dub…we’re sailing in this tub! My 16th anniversary gift to myself, a little pirate vessel, probably a pinnace or cutter used for short-range attacks, a 17th century version of what those Somalian pirates attack with but more sea … Continue reading

Cue up the harmonica solo!

Damn you Hot Wheels for finally making the impulse buy I was trying to avoid at HEB! Mattel finally made the TV/Movie replica I was willing to shell five bucks out to have, Jim Rockford’s Pontiac Firebird that he often … Continue reading

Alas, poor Lego Yorick!

An awesome find I made at the “used” Lego store up in Round Rock. They sell minifigs in see-thru bags at varying prices and some blind from past series.

Playmobil figures substituting for people in paintings

Click here to check out this artist’s work. I only recognized about half the pieces he did because I consider Basquiat’s stuff to be unimpressive. I also find it funny that the adaptations are done by a French guy due to … Continue reading

Meet the (Old) Republic’s 727th Jump Brigade

Damn J.J. Abrams and his teaser trailer. He unfortunately re-awakened my latent, deflated Star Wars mojo after George Lucas killed it with the help of terrible acting, a plot written by the eight-year-old version of me (actually, I would’ve done better) … Continue reading

Lego User Group creation for Halloween ’14

Certainly better than that boring movie Monster House. I can’t recall if I finished watching it or did I fall asleep.

Suck it von Doom!

Nick’s Summer diorama featured a super-villain Jeopardy tournament sponsored by the Red Skull, Arnim Zola running the computers and Dr. Victor von Doom as the host. The contestants were Boba Fett, Darkseid and comic-relief villain Dr. Klaw. I think Captain America … Continue reading
