No Emilio Estevez as far as the eye can see.

This is a really well played with (beat up) Mighty Ducks Wildwing made by Mattel.

I found this guy in Golden Gate park in 1998. I walked past him laying in a mud puddle three days in a row. On the third day, I figured nobody was coming back for him. So I picked him up, washed off as much of the dirt as possible, and he has lived with me ever since.

Score!

So, I needed a big bag of rice. The cheapest place to get rice around here is the Spanish grocery store. From time to time they have interesting knockoff toys or crazy candy of interest. This time, as I was checking out, I noticed a quarter machine well hidden in the corner by the door. It had 3 different things to choose from, candy, sticky hands and Avengers movie stuff. Now you may remember from a recent post that my Thor was without a hammer. When I looked closer at the machine I noticed something that was very interesting. Lucky, on my second set of quarters (remember when we were kids the machine only took 1 quarter?) I scored the item that peaked my interest.
Success! This hammer is perfect! Its a little sticky and the handle is a little thick but it stays in Thors hand really well because of that. Now I just need a little brown paint to make the handle the right color and it will be a complete win.

Sheer boredom or the onset of toy madness?

I've found myself playing with these 3.75" action figures a lot lately so I thought I would share the fun with you guys.

The little robot that could.

This is a closer look at my Bandai Tamashii Nations D Arts Rock man / Mega Man and Rush.

I showed this little Mega man once before in a post here but only 2 people looked at it and one of those two had no clue what he was looking at or talking about so I figured it was no harm to show him again.

Creature feature.

This is almost all my Creatures from the black lagoon in one place.

Normally, they live all over the place but I wanted to see how they all looked together.

This is why my official job title isn't Customizer.

This a custom Cobra Boomslang anti tank robot that I made back in the mid to late 90's out of a Toybiz Nimrod. 

This is one of about 25 that I made. This one was turning out poorly, so I flung it into a bin of junk parts where it spent the last two decades, until I came across the bin recently. I was pretty happy to discover I still had this one because I sold all of the others together along with the Cobra Terror Drome that I had created them to defend. This one is very sloppy, and was probably being made while I was slightly inebriated (I was inebriated often back then so its a very high probability) and is unfinished but its still neat to see.
