Cardboard and Vinyl charm

Can't say I'm a huge fan of either S.W.A.T or Emergency! but those vinyl & cardboard playsets are awesome and I totally want them.

That old timey computer....sigh....

PlaidStallions turns 11

This week marks the 11th anniversary of the launch of PlaidStallions. Truth be told, it was two days ago but life has been so bumpy lately, I totally forgot about it. That would have been a big mistake and here is why.

In eleven years of doing this, it has never felt like work and while it doesn't pay, it does pay back in all the wonderful (and often hilarious) feedback I receive from you folks. I look forward to doing this.

I cannot begin to properly explain how you all have impacted my life in a positive way and for that I'm very grateful today and this the reason that 11 years later I'm still scanning my smelly old catalogs.

Lining up some fun things for the remainder of the week including a new minisode podcast but I just wanted to start by giving praise where it's due. Thank you.

Superheroes and Apes in Japan

I was elated to find this ad full of Ourway Studios Superhero and Planet of the Apes merch in a Japanese issue of StarLog.

Especially mind warping is those Superhero stamp albums, which I totally had and collected as a kid. I wonder if they still accept orders......

Pod Stallions 52: Tom Baker

Episode 52 is a unique turn on our usual tribute shows as the subject we're speaking about is still alive and well.

We salute veteran actor Tom Baker in this month's show and celebrate not only his tenure as Doctor Who, where he cemented the character into pop culture but also his amazing turns in other films and television productions.

Some of the subjects we touch upon are Sinbad movies, Amicus horror, the mutations, action figures, Cluedo, Remington Steel, Dungeons and Dragons and George Segall as Robin Hood?

Plenty more content on the PodStallions Facebook page!

Palomino Dreaming

If I could wish one not produced toy into existence, it would likely be the Mego Palomino play set pictured here. I had a strong affection for the Black Hole as a kid and it continues to this day.

More on the Mego Black Hole line here.

Super-Fly Fashion: Styled the way you live!

As the saying goes, dress for the job you want, not the one you have.

Confession: I actually owned "A" at one point in my life and wore it to a party. I did not look Super Fly, more like a rejected "Doctor Who" from the 80s.
