CUSTOM MARVEL UNIVERSE GOLIATH!

Yeah forget you scalpers!  The Goliath figure pictured below is $150 on Ebay...
So........Remember that 1996 GI Joe figure I picked up in the Haul of Hauls?


  Well he is multi-articulated...I desperately NEED Avengers figures....So here we go.  But after thinking about it I decided I wanted the Goliath from the Masters of Evil.  I loved the story UnderSiege as a kid where Goliath and the other army of Masters beat the stuffin out of Hercules and Jarvis and almost destroy the Avengers.  


So here we go...again...
Don't laugh at his George Costanza rather bulbous head stretching out my finely knitted sweater!
Looks good doesn't he?  If I find some big GI JOE figures down here again I will continue.  I got plans to do Black Goliath, Giant Man, Goliath in blue, The Stranger and other big Marvel characters.  Maybe even some DC ones.
I found out when he was delivered by Raymundo that he could have sculpted on muscles on him...Good to know for next time.
I will destroy you Shellhead!

LILY MUNSTER HEAD!

So I found this mannequin head down here in Mexico.  Very cheap. So much so that it was free! It was a woman's head.  I was going to originally use it to just put masks on and kept it for a few years.  Until I also found a Lily Munster wig.  So wala!
Raymundo the artist painted her up and even sculpted a necklace on her!  She is now not boring anymore but a real life Lily bust.

BUZZCHUCK'S YODA RESTORED!

I couldn't thank Kevin enough for sending me some Star Wars figures a few months ago.  I had Yoda in 1980.  The first on my block in the neighborhood.  I have seen many over the years on Ebay that are naked.  Kevin sent me a naked one too.  But after Raymundo got a hold of him, he is restored to all his perfection!
The snake, cane and belt were made out of resin and the cape was sewn.  He looks terrific.  I also had him replace the R2 sticker so he looks brand new as well.  So awesome!  I already showcased the boxes of Dagobah redone.  The one I got didn't have them so I had to have Ray make em.

I have more things restored coming soon.  Just hold on tight.  I am dying to get my hands on a naked Land of the Jawas and the hoth playsets.

And Kevin ya betta comment something other than NICE!  A lotta love went into this one.  HAHA

MAKING INVISIBLE OUT OF A VAMPIRE...

When Monster Cafe designed Dracula we went through a few heads before the final version of Bela Lugosi.  A woman did it first and it was a little off...My artist did the second and third head.  2 years ago a MAJOR asshole was in the cafe and got a little drunk.  He decided to break the second head.  It looks like this...
The asshole smashed it to the ground.  We filed a police report and they did....NOTHING.  So whenever my ship comes in, BELIEVE ME, I think I am part Greek and will get my final revenge.   I know someone he knows and I will hire a PI to find him whenever I get the cash to do so.  He will rue the day.   So we had this piece lying around for 2 years not doing anything and decided for my artist to remake it into something else....
I think it came out pretty good.  It was just something to use the old head.
The Invisible Man!  Yup!  We didn't have to remodel it all that much.  We just wrapped his head up and put sunglasses on him.  I think he looks good.  The head below was the FIRST Dracula that the woman artist had done.

 I decided to turn him into White Zombie that the second head used to be.  At a cost of just $5 per head including mounting them to a base I think it was well worth it.

CUSTOM HAMBURGLER!

Robble robble...

I have an affinity for the Mcdonaldland characters and Hamburgler is no exception.  Remember that Mcdonaldland shipment I got in where half of it was stolen?



 Well Raymundo made his hat for me.  It looks great!
So now thanks to Goodwill Geek for Mayor McCheese, I now have 3 Mcdonaldland characters that are done.  I finally have a Ronald but he needs some work.

The only two I am missing are the Professor and Captain Crook.

My latest obsessions...

I thought I would do a top 10 list of the things I am actively trying to collect lately..
1. SUPER POWERS- I have Superman restored so he is checked off.  Now I gotta get the others.  I prefer incompletes as I can restore them myself and are usually cheaper.
2. SECRET WARS FIGURES- the two go hand in hand right?  I already have Hobgoblin so he is crossed off the list.  I would love Dr. Doom and Magneto because I am imagining putting capes on them and making them my version of complete.
3.STAR WARS AND REACTION- I am more focused on Star Wars than reaction right now for sure.  I feel I must collect the old stuff before I even start on the new.  I have a few figures but it is only 15 or so thanks to BuzzChuck!  I am not even interested in ROTJ stuff.  Only the first two movies will do for me.  God would I love an Alien and a Wampa...

4. BATMAN ANIMATED- I have Croc, Phantasm, Joker, and Mad Hatter but that is only scratching the surface.  They released alot that I didn't know about back in the day.
5. THESE 3 MEGOS-  I never had many but I had these three in the past.  There was a blurb on the Mego Museum forums that soon figsinc. will be persuing the Marvel License.  I can only hope for reissues of these!  I would almost want naked Megos to restore them.  It is so much more fun.
6. HALLOWEEN GURLEY CANDLE SKULL- the one on the left.  THAT WAS halloween to me as a kid.  I gotta have it for the Monster Cafe one day.
7. IMAGINEERING VAMPIRE BLOOD BOTTLE-  This was another favorite of mine in my warped childhood.  All I want is the bottle.  It can be empty for all I care.  But at $75 on Ebay I will be in for a long wait.
8. GI JOE PLAYSETS- from 1982-1986.  I for some reason do not even want the figures. I just thought the playsets were cooler.  I have the APC but that is it.  Gotta get my joes back.  Especially this one the Outpost Defender.  This was SO cool!
9. AMAZING SPIDERMAN 200-250- Those were my Spidey issues.  I have 224 and 232 so they are out....But the others scream my childhood to me.
10. WINNIE THE POOH LAMP- This lamp was by my bedside to keep the monsters away when I was a kid.  I will always look on it fondly and will own one one day.  Besides the lamp I currently have SUCKS!  I have to use pliers to turn it off.
