Pod Stallions 47: Roddy McDowall

Our latest show is a tribute to one of our favourite actors and certainly somebody that requires no introduction to any child of the 1970s.

Episode 47 is all about Roddy McDowall, although we purposely sidestep Planet of the Apes, mostly because we do whole shows on that topic any way and also because the guy had a pretty incredible career on top of being Galen/Cornelius/Caesar.

We chat his various television series like Tales of the Gold Monkey and Fantastic Journey and his incredible amount of guest spots on shows like Batman, Columbo, Quantum Leap and even Pinkey and the Brain.

And of course, we discuss films like Fright Night, The Black Hole and the Legend of Hell House among others.

Hit us up on our facebook page and tell us what your favourite Roddy McDowall role is!

Astro Apes Inflatables

Astro Apes

I've blogged about the bootleg Planet of the Apes knock off action figure line "The Astro Apes" before but I never thought I'd run into more merchandising for such a fly by night line.

Then I run into these insane dime store rarities, let us have a looksie this box inside after the jump.

Cash in with Kenner '81

Here's a fun toy industry promo from Kenner, who was riding high on toy lines such as Star Wars, Play Doh, Glamour Gals, Star Wars, Strawberry Shortcake and oh yeah, Star Wars.

More on this promotion after the jump!

Fantasy Island Poster Art Set

Thanks to this site, I found one of my top five personal wants and I know it's hard to believe but this is done without irony. I really liked Fantasy Island as a kid and this poster art set is one of the cooler bits of merchandise it got.

Look how pimp Mr. Roarke and Tattoo look there!

I've honestly been looking for this set for years, it rarely pops up, unlike Star Wars which is constantly available.

Like all Craft Master Poster Art sets, the art is phenomenal but I'm honestly unsure of how to get the results depicted on the package with those markers. 

Smiles everyone, Smiles!
