JUST about finished my entire action figure collection in little repairs.  Here is the latest batch.
 Found this Hush figure down here ages ago.  But the bottom part of his trenchcoat was ripped off.  I had Ray make a new one.
 The cannon on top of this GI Joe little roadster was gone as well.  Ray made me a new one.  It almost looks authentic no?  He also did Blowtorch´s gun.
I wasn´t quite happy with the first Scorpion King ax.  Ray very nicely, made a new one.  This one looks better.
 Also found the Toybiz Marvel Ahab down here.  Ray made a new spear for him to track down those dirty mutants!  Or convert them into hounds.  If you have read Days of Future present, you know what I am talking about.
Finally...These are all over the place in Mexico.  Little hard plastic masked wrestlers.  Wifey and I were shopping in a grocery store when I found this guy on a shelf next to plants.  I think a little kid was playing with him and it was his.  They do not sell these in the stores.  I decided to free him.  Had Ray paint him up like El Santo the famous Mexican luchador.  He will have a place on my TV.

More is to come soon.  Another batch of fixes.

Had this Captain Britain laying around.  I bought it before I knew of the existence of the more accurate one.  So I looked at all villains that looked like him.  Flagsmasher was the logical choice.
Marvel Universe are no longer being delivered to Mexico.  Oh well.  So I gotta make do right?

Cap is on him like stank!  Glad I could do something with this figure I otherwise would have never used.

So unbeknowest to me, my wifey has been giving Ray some broken glasses and mugs we had to create art from in the Monster Cafe.  And I LOVE IT!

It was just a regular skull mug we bought at party city and Ray painted it up swell.
This was a small beer glass and Ray created a shrunken head in it.  Everytime I look at it I think of Beetlejuice.
 This next one is inspired.  It looks like a brain is coming out of an old wine glass.
The eyeball on the side is a great touch.
 I thought Ray was going to just paint this straight up. A red and white coke glass...
But then he arrived with it having foam and a straw!  So frickin cool.  It reminds me of that floating food you can buy that is made of plastic some specialty stores have.

Not as good as last time but almost.
1. Last Action hero Arnold!  I only owned one figure of this in my life.  The Ax Ripper.  Hope I find him someday.
2. JLU B´wana Beast- I read up on his powers.  He merges animals together or something like that.  Eh, I will give him the power to turn into animals instead.
3. Toybiz Hobgoblin- How could I not own him?  He is my namesake!
4. Pirates guy- I have a great collection of these now.
5. Santino Marella- Shocked to find modern Mattels are hitting mexico.  He fills a definite hole.  I think all I am missing from series one is the Hurricane and Mike Knox.
6. Batman forever Riddler- Had him in 95.  Glad to have him again!
7. DC Scarecrow- YES!  This was the awesomest toy I got this day.  All I need is Joker and Killer Croc from this line.  The vendor said he had just sold a Bane right before I got there.  Drats!
8. Disney Rhino- He is huge.  He is the only one I wanted from the Disney pack.  All I want now from this line is Doc Ock, Sandman, and Juggernaut.  Eh, maybe Hulk too.  Gotta have Ray fix his horn though.  He is the only one that has damage.
9. Pez Fozzie- My pez collection is growing SLOWLY!  Gotta find more for a special project.

Well it was ley seca in Saltillo.  That means the dry law.  And THAT means when they do their voting here, restaurants are to close early and not open at all on Sunday to not serve alcohol.  I guess they want their people to be sober when they vote.

So Wifey and I took a trip to the flea market or pulgas if you will.

I have talked about the pulgas before but never showed it to you.  Arteaga is where the best one is.
The entrance to it is nice.  By 4pm the place is packed with people.

But first we had to stop by the little river in the city.  Took off our shoes and enjoyed it immensly.
 They don´t call it the magic town for nothing!

Vendors set up shop to sell food.  Boy is it good!
 People from all over the city come here.

Rows and rows of toys.
Little food carts everywhere.

A third vendor has come in the past month carrying toys!  Yippee!
 We stopped at a cemetary later.  an old one.  Look at this crypt!
 One guy loved the Beatles so much he was buried with em!

Very cool crypts.  We went there to remind us that life is precious.  Enjoy every minute of it.

Next time I go over what I got at the pulgas!
