I gotta tell you I LOVE taking these army 12 inch guys and transforming them into something more useful than a naked Gi Joe guy. Of course I would never turn a vintage GI Joe into one...These are cheapo World peacekeepers.  But the one I feature today is a Max Steel throwaway...

 Uh oh!  Through some nefarious magical trickery Iron Man's old foe the Mandarin is now a giant!  HE wants to do away with our intrepid hero.  What will ole Shellhead do?
Quickly the Mandarin his Iron Man in his grip.  Trying to crush the life out of Tony Stark.  Will help arrive soon?
 Clint Barton AKA Goliath comes out of nowhere and plows into Mandarin!
 He starts beating the fortune cookies outta him!
 Mandarin is so startled by the attack he cannot use his deadly rings of power.
Goliath and IronMan celebrate victory!

I love this figure.  I think it is my favorite Ray has done .  So cool to have a seventies era Goliath.

After being a fan of the WWF for years I FINALLY have a Hulk Hogan T shirt.  Had to get it.
 Screw the WWF and their hatred of my hero.
 I will wear it proudly!  Love the guy!
Boy my left arm just cannot get big again.  I am working on it though.

I love this movie.  It was an essential part of my childhood.  However the buttheads at Youtube keep on taking it down.  So.......

Now it is free on Putlocker!

Oh it is SO good.

I have gotten a few of the Marx 6 inch army figures....Now I just found an Indian....
So awesome!  Now all I gotta do is find a Caveman and Cowboy 6 inch and for me it will be complete.

PULGAS- AWA REMCO! part 1 of epic find

So wifey and I decided to take Sunday off and head out to Arteaga.  Where the pulgas is.  It is a great little town.  I usually go with the expectation of never finding anything.  Boy on this day I was WRONG.
I peered into this tub of toys and one figure stood out to me....RIC FLAIR!  Then I started pulling out more.
 The longriders!  I hate to say it but I never watched the AWA.  I didn't get to see this gimmick.
 Larry Zybysko!  WHOA!  He was recently inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
 Ric Flair was the first figure I saw.  I love it.  Never had these as a kid as I was a WWF LJN fan first.
 Then I found Whiplash from Masters of the Universe!  Same tub mind you!
 I debated on wheather or not to get him as some jackass kid tore his tail off.  But then my wife kindly nudged me that Ray would restore him probably.  So I ended up taking him home.  Now with Kevin's Mantenna I have two MOTU figures.

And because he didn't have his tail my new Four Horsemen put the boots to him.  Was thinking of restoring all four AWA Remco figures too with their robes and jackets .etc.

Yup...Wifey and I took the day off and had a blast.  We went to Arteaga.  They have great second hand toys there.  I picked up a few things which I will detail in the following blogposts.
 I tried to get a pic with this donkey but he was having none of it.
Poor shy donkey...
 In Arteaga they have a mountain water stream going through the middle of the city.  It is quite something to see.
 So Wifey and I decided to put our feet in it.  Oh it is NICE!
 Very cool.  I love Arteaga.
 The worst part was when a diaper floated by and I had to lift my feet outta there fast.
They have these HUGE trees that grow on the water.  Had to climb up one to get a shot.  All in all a relaxing trip.

Well I picked up three more Thailad horizon model kits.  This one of Son of Frankenstein is a Geometric kit.  I wish the Thailand guy had more but this is the only one.  For the base I wanted Ray to do it in a cemetary.  I think it will be a great addition to Monster Cafe Saltillo.
Wow.  Look at the difference in my arms.  The left one I broke is still VERY small.
I gave Ray some of the tombstones I had from other kits.  Let's see...
 OH MY GOODNESS!  Look at it!  It is a little more than a foot big!
 Frankenstein never looked better!
 Ray even designed his own tombstones.
 Check out that fog!
 He even added some rats.
 Do you see the fence in the back?  Nice touch huh?
This is a great kit!  Thanks Ray!  As a kid I always wanted these kits.  Now I got em!  When I look at them I become a young man again.
