Here are a few EPIC garage sale finds that my wife picked up for me. Enjoy....
First up we have a 1974 Fisher Price Alien figure...not really too sure about his history, but this figure was too sweet to pass up. I know his dome is a little foggy but give the guy a break he's over 40 years old.
Then we have Mac Tonight....enough said. :)
Then along came CLAWFUL. With his disproportionate claws and major over bite. I can see why this dude was a charter member of the EVIL WARRIORS. Red Lobster would love to have him as the dinner special...that right claw would be delicious.
And adding to my budding VHS collection we have the animated Godzilla show from the late 90's. I wasn't a big fan of the show, but come on its King Kaiju you cant pass that up.
Well that all for now my faithful followers...see you in the future!!!!

|The Space Adventures of Princess Unicorn and Her Faithful Servant Nutter Butter|
Hello my fellow bloggers and followers. I wanted to drop a quick note to let everyone know that I'm still alive, just in hibernation storing up my energy for the coming Holiday season. But until my triumphant return to this site (hopefully soon) please enjoy the above photo I created of my two kiddos.

It is Halloween and all, so I figured it's time to share an amazing piece of Kids Meal history. Feast your eyes on the McDonald's Slimer Squeezer....
I recently acquired this little buddy in an amazing toy trade. The kind lady who sent this to my even included the original toy insert, which I immediately scanned in.
But wait there's more.
For your viewing pleasure I videoed the process by which this slimy ghoul works. Allow me to demonstrate how Slimer spits in the face of his enemies.

Epic doesn't even cover it.....
Feast your eyes on 1984 "Super Powers" Kenner Joker figure. Missing his mallet doesn't dampen my mood one bit. This laughing stock is an amazing piece for my Batman shelf, not to mention that he's in great shape for being 30 years old.
I'm a sucker to "Kids Meal" toys and Beetlejuice...so when the two meet I'm definitely excited.
This solar powered Frankstein was a gift from my wife. When you remove the threat of electricity and replace his juice with solar power..Franks a happy boy.
And lastly we have Franken-Troll!
I have a healthy Battle Troll collection, but did not have a Frankenstein. So when a trade came along that included him I jumped at the offer. Thus boosting my nerd points to level 10.
Well that's all Gals and Ghouls, till next time....STAY SCARED!

Dracula here, was put out in 97 by Burger King as a kids meal toy. This little bad boy rounds out my collection which includes Gil-Man, Wolfman, & Frankenstein's Monster. The fast food chains had the right idea back in the day, now we just need to get them up to speed.
Next we have a Godzilla bottle cap topper circa 2003. Not really sure of the origin of this novelty, but love it none the less. And he adds a little something to my Godzilla shrine.
That's it for now ghouls...I'll be back tomorrow with more excitement installments of "Brian's Plastic Crap"!

Recent nab....a Slimer pencil topper. Now I have a little buddy to watch me gaze into my computer screen. I just may adopt him as my third child. That's legal right?
Next I received a 1992 Playmates Lurch toy. If you not down with the Addams Family, then you can just ignore this photo and focus on the Slimer one above.
That's all for now folks...

With the Halloween season upon us I have made it a point to dive head first into spooky themed post. I have also decided to not invest every ounce of energy I have into this concept, as I would like to enjoy the holiday rather then be strung out. I will be celebrating, exploring, & sharing my thoughts but remain lite on the wording. You would be surprised at the amount of energy it takes to put together a post, podcast, video logs, etc and still have a full time job and life.
Anyway, let's take a look at this years Target Exclusive retro-art boxes.
First we have the Count, with his vague resemblance to a hybrid Maleficent/Scrooge look. This is probably my favorite out of the lot as far as taste go, but I still have to give it up to my boy Franken-Berry.
Each box comes with a cut out mask!
Second we have Franken-Berry and his warm inviting grin.
And his cut out mask. I think I know what I'm going for Halloween as...
And lastly we have Boo Berry. Out of the bunch, his design appeals to me the least. I think they spent a total of five minutes coming up the art. Oh well...he's still a classic.
Well that all folks, what are your thoughts on the boxes that Target rolled out???

I've decided that for my first "Halloween Countdown" post that I will revisit Ghouls and Goblins that have graced the pages of my journals. I begin keeping an illustrated journal several years ago and focused mainly on sketching moments and items. Which is fun, but not really my cup of tea.Now I lean more toward incorporating those moments into a page full of my wacky randomness. Below are a few snippets, pages, & cardboard cutouts that some up my appreciation for the spirit of Halloween. This time of year really gets my creative juices flowing.
Stay Scared my friends.....
