Being a vintage Batman collector has been putting a squeeze on my wallet lately, not from buying vintage items, but from all the amazing new products based on the classic 1966 TV show. As we near the 50th anniversary of the Adam West and Burt Ward series, the number of licensed products based on the show seems to multiply exponentially every week. One of the greatest outcomes … [Read more...] about Catwoman model by Moebius
Hey kids! You can be all about your Miley Cyrus twerking and your One Dimension, but want to know what we were all about in the 70's? This pretty much sums it up... This model kit combines two of my favorite things: cyborgs and simians. And you don't even need any frickin' glue! Pure genius is what this is. Steve Austin was the man in the late 70's, taking out any man or … [Read more...] about Six Million Dollar Man “Fight for Survival” model kit by Fundimensions
The King Kong World Tour returned to the states with a visit to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where we was hosted by Rich over at the Nerd Nook. Rich showed the big guy around town and fed him an ungodly amount of cheese steaks. (I don't want to think how many cows were required to satisfy Kong's hunger.) I won't spoil the surprise but be sure to play the triumphant video … [Read more...] about King Kong World Tour — Philadelphia, PA
The King Kong World Tour made its first international stop last week when Kong visited Calvin's Canadian Cave of Cool.

The King Kong World Tour continues as Kong hitched a ride in the back of a watermelon truck and ended up in Atlanta, Georgia with a hankering for some Southern comfort food. Raaaaaa! It's the Branded in the 80's headquarters! The latest stop on the World Tour was with Shawn Robare, who kindly offered to show Kong around Atlanta while he was in town. First stop, … [Read more...] about King Kong World Tour — Atlanta, GA
The second stop on the King Kong World Tour was with my pal, Todd Sheffer, in York, Pennsylvania. Todd has been hampered with an arm injury, so Kong's visit was limited to work and home, but when you work and live where Todd does, that's not a bad deal at all! Kong got the VIP treatment at the headquarters of Hake's Americana & Collectibles, possibly the best place on … [Read more...] about King Kong World Tour — York, Pennsylvania
King Kong's World Tour begins on the hallowed grounds of the Manassas Battlefield, home to one of the fiercest battles of the American Civil War. The Manassas Battlefield is just a few miles from my house and is a great place to take a hike or have a picnic. "There stands Jackson like a stone wall." Kong enjoyed the old stone bridge that spans Bull Run, but we … [Read more...] about King Kong World Tour — Manassas, Virginia
It's been a slow week and my mind got to wandering to an idea I've been wanting to put into action for a while. Gnomes do it, Stanley does it, Gandalf does it, Spock even did it--now it's the big guy's turn... King Kong is going on a looooong journey. His bags are packed and he's headed to Skull Island Airport as we speak. But where in the world is he going? If you … [Read more...] about Announcing the King Kong World Tour!
