I bought these this year and had fuzzy pics to boot.  Well a little glue and now they look awesome.
They look great.  Had them in 2004 but sold them.  Still gotta get the rest of the set.  But I am in old school mode right now so that will have to wait.

I know I know. wifey wanted a project of her own for Ray to do.  She loved this wine glass and it broke at the cafe.  Oh what to do?
 So Ray turned it upside down and made a base and an eyeball inside.  I think a brain could be cool too.
Not bad for a little arthouse

Well I finally got tired of Franky and Wolfman adorning our tshirts.  So we designed a new logo to go with Monster Cafe Saltillo.

Looks frickin awesome if I do say so myself.  I want to eventually do more.  Fact is we did Franky and Wolfy last year and I have run out of shirts of them.  Needed new ones.  I ordered three of this.  It should hold me a while.

For those of you that do not know it is the Metaluna Mutant from This Island Earth.

So I had this big book of movies I picked up in Laredo TX.  I doubt I ever will read it.  I got it for a dollar.  I thought it would be interesting as I love movies but it is ONLY about movies from 1969 and reads very verbose.   I was just thirsting for books in English down here.  So I decided to give it a makeover so as to not be boring.
Oh yeah baby!  A match made in space. A book cover for a book that doesn't even exist!
What sort of secrets lie in this book?  Will George McFly tell us about the planet Vulcan?
Dang...I gotta lay off the pie for awhile.  Getting a little chunky!

Wifey's flower pot

Wifey bought a plain old flowerpot but wanted to have it in the cafe.  Since we do not have much Bride of Frankenstein in it...Here we go.

Yeah I know.  Not too exciting.  But my wifey was thrilled.  She has never gotten something for her in this vein.  I like it myself.

It was an impulse buy...Near the register.  I was around in 1977 for the original Star Wars but never owned any of the 12 inchers.  My friend at the time had a few.  But for some reason my Dad didn't get me any.  UNTIL NOW!
I got them for a very cheap price because no one wanted them.  Most people that are collectors do not restore their stuff...
Yeah there is NOTHING pervy at all about holding two naked men like this...haha

Let's see what Rosy and Raymundo can do...
Rosy posey sewed the clothes....Ray sculpted the belt and boots.  Not bad.  I didn't want him to do the lightsabers as I always thought they looked stupid.  Ray also made the bases for them to stand on.

I am stoked!

Wish I could find some naked Megos out there.  I love restoring old toys.

I have been trying to get a Ghost Rider for a long time now.  Finally that search is over.  He made his way down to Mexico.

Now all I gotta do is find some kind of motorcycle for him to ride.  Have Ray add some flames to it and wala...

Controversial Thursday- I am a doctor and a fireman!

That is right!  I just had a degree in becoming a doctor and a fireman.  And it only took 2 hours of my time!  I can now prescribe medicines, perform complicated surgeries all the while putting out the most dangerous backdrafts known to mankind!

How did I do such a thing?

Well the assholes in the Saltillo government who are OBVIOUS libtards decided that every restaurant EVERY 6 months has to take their idiotic courses to the tune of $600 for child waiters to get these courses.
 OH MY GOD! A FIRE!  WHAT DO WE DO?  You call the fire department dumbass!
Ya do a little fire extinguisher stuff between your legs!
Yup.  We are now all board certified to put out any fire.  Um of course our knowledge only lasts 6 months before it is time to pay again for these "courses"  It is just a plain as day money grab from the restaurants though.  I NEVER in my entire time in Georgia EVER picked up a fire extinguisher when I worked as a waiter.  Nor had courses etc.  They did what normal people did.  They frickin called the fire department!  This is EXTORSION From the Saltillo government!  Waiters quit like it is a bodily function. So I have to pay for the next 16 year old everytime to become a doctor and a fireman.  Oh, did I mention doctor?  Well read on....
 Yup.  We also took a course that lasted an hour of us wrapping people up if they got cut.  Well let me tell you, if some teenager with NO medical experience wraps me up if I have an accident at a restaurant I am suing  the Saltillo government for making such an insane law.  Believe me.  Kids have no business attending to the wounds of ANYONE!  They could do far more damage to them.

We also learned about poisening and how to lay someone's head up from the floor.  ARE YOU KIDDING ME?  This is crap!  CALL a frickin ambulance for this!  Little zit faced kids have NO right to be doing this!

Disclaimer- I love my waiters and chef etc.  But they should not be put in the position by the government to be doing these things.

When I fell at Mcdonalds and BROKE my arm in Feb of this year, no one from Mcdonalds helped in any way.  I am SURE they had these courses too Saltillo government!  Yet none helped!  See?  So your entire course thing is a bunch of crap.  Thank God my wife was there and drove me to the emergency room and I didn't have to rely on the fryguy to set my broken arm.

The Saltillo government is extorting the restaurants and businesses in Saltillo by requiring these courses.  It is insane and something only liberals could dream up.

Playing around with my camera...
I had more pics of this but they didn't turn out right...My wife bought this Banzai tree for the cafe.
 I found this Buddha headpiece and thought it was perfect to pose Indy in front of.
 The Scooby Doo castle board game!  Yeah I wish I had gotten the actual Haunted House playset but I bought this instead.
Indy is exploring the castle to find his artifact...

Dagger never made her way down here.  Oh well...
He is hiding in the shadows...The first Cloak comic I ever read was Spectacular Spidey 69
I got it in the mail in 1982 when I sent for a subscription.  Someday I will have it again.

I was in Laredo Texas not that long ago when I stumbled on the Mystic Eye.  You know one of those old carny game things like the Zoltar machine in the move BIG?  Well I just had to have it.  It is actually a place to keep your coins.
It is battery operated and I think the eye spins and lights up when in use.  I have never tried mine.
Even Spock has trouble getting it to work...

I found this guy down here too.  I did NOT want the variant in his sandy form.  I wanted how he looked to me in the comics.
 Too bad the pic turned out just a little blurry.
Darn this one too.  I hope my new camera doesn't start sucking....

I had a chance to buy Amazing Spiderman 4 the first appearance of Sandman back in 86 and I balked.

I never thought I would own anything imaginext.  But it turns out sometimes they make their way down here to the pulgas.  AND they work great with 3.75 figures!  AND I got it for $8!
 This thing is pretty frickin huge.  I may not make a Batcave after all.  Thanks to Tony again for the Batman figure!
 I make have Ray repaint it so it will erase all of that red and yellow stuff.  I hate those things.
 Batman looks great perched on the ledge here.  Imaginext has definitely brought playsets back in a big way.
There is me just playing around with the old DD ML base.  Batman looks awesome as heck against this.

So I finally got the leader of the Masters of Evil.  Before he forms the Masters he directly confronts Captain America.  It doesn't go well...
 Biff bang pow!  Zemo takes a left cross!
 Yup.  Cap is wailing on him!
I think Zemo better form the Masters BEFORE he meets Cap again.  That would be the smart thing to do.  One of the best stories I ever read with the Baron was the time he formed the Masters of Evil in it's fourth incarnation.  They came so close to beating the Avengers for good.  Roger Stern is my favorite writer of comics.  He is amazing.

Yeah I might be fudging it here.  But I found this guy in Mexico on the cheap at the pulgas.  He had black magic marker marks all over him.  Ray tried to clean him up as best as he could.  I will NEVER understand why kids do that to their figures.  I never did.

I also got a fourth AIM soldier.  I only armybuild up to four.  Why?  Because I am not a jerk.   I set them in my boiler room and wala...
He must be a Marvel Legends guy.  He is so big.  I love him.  I know he is Iron Monger for those out there.
 They are working feverishly to get him ready to fight the Avengers.
So cool.  He is a beast!

I have never seen TNA.  But I read about it sometimes on the wrestling sites.  Apparantly they knocked off the NWO from WCW but with third stringers.  I kinda liked this idea.  They took a lowgrade wrestler like Festus from the WWF and made him cool with a gimmick that he joined the aces and eights.
He was a pretty boring figure anyways so I put him in this.  It is much better now.  Well that is it.  I am off Wrestling clothes for awhile.

Monday, June 1, 2015


This is the second to the last figure I will be doing for awhile.  I am so tired of my wrestling obsession.  I am sure I will pick it up again at some point.
I thought Holly was hokey with this gimmick.  Never took him seriously until he went Hardcore.
