1980s Geekout down the holiday road…..

OMG! Everyone, look at this metal and plastic prize!

And in time for summer vacations everywhere!

I had to open it! Look what was on the other side…”HONKEY Lips”!!


So great!

Toy show and Comic Shop anniversary….

Yesterday was Saturday and there was a toy show in my town. Lots of fun for me and a certain little dude that I love. First off I found these neato oversized Matchbox Cars…..

Aren’t they neato?!

The red and blue one are both marked “Matchbox Speed Kings”, but the red one is marked 1971 called “Shovel Nose”, and the blue one is 1972, called “Bandolero”. I’m sure they were beautiful right out of the box, but, I kind of like the worn look. You can see the years on them and it gives them character. Don’t you think?

Now, the green one is also marked Matchbox, but is from 1977. It is from their line called “Adventure 2000”. It’s called “K-2002 Flight Hunter”. These were just a few of the items we picked up at the Inside Pitch Toy and Hobby Show.

Later in the day, I had been invited to be a guest artist at The SPOT in Newton NC.

While I was there I “spotted” (see what I did there?!) a comic that I always buy (yes I collect multiple copies of my favorites), Crystar issue #6. Now I don’t collect the Crystar series and I didn’t as a kid, but, this issue is pretty much an X-Men stand alone issue in disguise. The entire thing is about my favorite mutant Nightcrawler!

Talk about a day of fun! WHEW!
