BuzzChuck's 4 inch Tigra!

SO glad I found my camera card.  This gem was sitting in it...

So this is pretty awesome!  I didn't collect any of the 4 inch Thundercats because I thought they looked too anime.  And god knows I HATE anime!  But this one grew on me.  I would like to get the rest one day.  I even posed him against my season one edition of Thundercats.

P.S. THANKS Buzzchuck!

Oh yeah.  Everyone's favorite Heartbreak kid...This was SUPPOSED to coincide with the mirror I was getting but it didn't happen.  The gal was a little late on the sewing duties.
She did the jacket awesome!  It is probably her best work.  She even made gloves for him that you cannot see in the pic above to well but they are there.

Hey, in the absence of actually buying figures I HAVE to do this.  No figures are sold here anymore.

And good news!  I finally found my camera card!  I can take regular photos now.  So frickin happy!

Monster Cafe uniform!

We used to have Frankenstein in our logo.  I decided in 2013 to change a few shirts to do Wolfman.
You can see it pretty clearly.  Wolfman's head next to the company name.  On the other side it says Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico.

The reason I am wearing a gora....It is because it is FREEZING!

I was feeling nostalgia for my youth.  I know I have been making my own things which has been completely awesome mind you....But sometimes I want some things that other companies make.  I was thinking back to 1990 - the rest of my life.  When I got involved in bodybuilding.

I got this book Ultimate bodybuilding.  Read it daily, worked out etc.  I think I have said on this blog about my house burning down.  Some bastards broke into it and burned it down.  Many theories abound as to who it was but.....We never found out.  Anyway this book was among the burnt up pieces.

I finally splurged $10 to get one from Amazon.

22 YEARS LATER!  I finally have it again.  Screw you burning down theiving buttholes!  I have it again! 

It is time to start working out again like a madman.

AHHHHHHH! More Reaction goodness!

We also dropped some hints on some pretty cool licenses like Firefly, Universal Monsters, Back to the Future, Goonies, Terminator 1 & 2, Predator, The Rocketeer, Nightmare B4 Christmas, Escape from New York, Pulp Fiction, Buffy the Vampire Slayer(TV), Star Trek Classic and many many more.

Oh my goodness!  Now Classic Star Trek has been announced in the 3 inch figure market.  They also announced 6 inch but I do not collect 6 inch anymore so no big loss for me...

Playsets I plan to make to welcome these figures is off the hook.

The Enterprise, The Remco Monster House, Nightmare B4 christmas town, and an apocalyptic wasteland for Terminator!

Man this is bad ass!

I cannot wait to see what they look like!

I had this idea of doing a Craig DeGeorge corner because this was the guy who was my Micheal Cole back in the  day.  They were always hawking WWF Coliseum Home videos...And they usually had a Hulk Hogan cardboard cutout holding a WWF video cassette of Hulkamania volume one.
Like this one.  It is in the first minute of the video so you can get a look at it....So I designed this one..

It is a little big of course.  But then I thought of how to turn my Andre the Giant heel....Instead of a Giant trophy that Andre gets jealous at like in real life, he gets jealous over the giant Hulk Hogan cardboard cutout hawking the video!

New DVD scores!

WHOO!  I got three from my list today at Walmart!  They were just sitting there calling out to me.

Love this movie.  I cannot wait to watch it.

One Flew over!!!  My mother took me to see it when it first came out.  Yeah she is crap that way.  So I saw it at what...5 years old?  The Indian man scared the crap out of me.

The original!  I have the Wiz.  Now I got this.  It will be a yearly tradition!

We also picked up two not on my list. 

The River Wild and Dr. Zhivago.

Being in Mexico has been a freeing experience.  I LOVE to frickin make my own things.  The last shirt I did was Seinfeld.  This week it is something dear to me from childhood. 
It is so hard even in Target to find shirts one wants to really wear.  Making my own is awesome.  I am so proud to have added this beast to the collection.   I have other ones planned for the future as well.  NO ONE around here gets what is on these shirts as they didn't grow up with them but I did.  I love being the only one that knows how cool the Mattel Krusher was.

Monster Cafe Saltillo's Halloween!

We were open for business and had a great time.  We also had many trick or treaters.  We gave out lollypops AND kids menus.

 I liked the little girl's half skull faces!
 Pirates and Spiderman oh my!
 There is Wifey with her blond hair giving out candy...
 A baby Mummy!
A geniune Scarecrow!
Chiqi Dracula!

All in all it was terrific.  Cannot wait for next year.

I saw this over at and I am SURE it came with a wrestler or a playset.  But since we get NOTHING down here in Mexico.  I had to make my own!
I told my artist to pick whatever pic he wanted.  Didn't have to be Cena.

 So he picked HHH.  Holding two titles.  Pic was sometime probably in 2005 or something.  I do not remember the more modern stuff.  When I do a backstage playset one day I will need this.
Here is my custom Edge coat again watching the TV.  Boy has HE got something in store for HHH...

And coming next....The dreaded BOILER ROOM!  Which I can also use for Batman probably..

Custom WWF hurt ribs patch!

Loved it when Hogan got injured at the hands of King Kong Bundy right before Wrestlemania 2.  The patch above is held together by velcro in the back.  It is a very simple piece but effective.  Waitress sewed this one.
