My growing Grossery gang figure collection.

I'm loving these figures so much .They remind me of the Food fighter a lot and are pretty much in scale with them.

Cleaning the catchall .

I thought I would snap a picture of this area for posterity's sake. This corner is where my computer is and has an odd sized bookcase that just doesn't fit with the rest of the shelves, so its getting a custom made replacement and the shelves are getting a makeover.This really is just an area where things that don't have any other place to go endup so it's long past due for a sorting out.

Project Bumblejumper : post one.

Recently I picked a Transformers G1 Bumblejumper out of the quarter toy bin at Goodwill (SCORE!) . He was missing the rubber tires and really thats no big deal but then I ham fisted and broke the pegs off of the head plate (D'oh!) Now what we have here is a project! I love projects.I plan to document the process of restoring this valuable little car back to a place where he is valuable once again.My hope is that this project will take place in one step and I will be able to fix him by cannibalising one of the new Walmart Bumblebees. Here are some pictures of him in his current state :






Now , on a side note you may have noticed the change in appearance of the old blog here. For those who were not around back then this is the origenal (almost) look of this blog from way back in 2012.Im changing formats and going back to being a full geek culture blog  to give myself the freedom to post about whatever I feel like so going back to my origenal look felt like a good choice. I will still post toys but also anything else I feel like (5.5 Alive will still be strictly 5.5 figures though).

Conversation Saturday : Where they lost me.


Over the years there have been many shows I would tune into regular but not as many that I would because so infatuated that I would buy every bit of merchandise and never miss a new episode. A few shows have made it to my "super fan" list with two of them being the shows that I dove into headlong and went all in for merchandise wise , those two show were Supernatural and The Walking dead.
I was with  both shows  from the very beginning but I no longer watch either ,the merchandise all packed up and put away. So where and why did these show loose me? Well lets talk about that shall we..

Supernatural lost me at episode 2 of season 12 .Why ? Because of  Mary Winchester .I just simply couldn't stand the character, the actress or the entire idea of her being back .It hit the wrong note in my ear and I tuned out. From what I have read they are about half way done airing season 14 but I honestly wouldn't know  because its hardly a blip on my radar these days

The Walking dead ,where did this one loose me? Season 7, Episode 1 .Why ? Negan. To put it simply he was just too over the top for me. Some characters you love and some you love to hate but for me he was neither .He was simply blah to me. Not believable not hateable in the way a good villain should be but more like hateable in the way that person who smears poop all over the toilet seat in a public restroom right before you are suddenly hit with that gotta go feeling.Now don't get me wrong I love the actor in most everything else but here I just didn't feel it. 

I'm not saying that I might not binge watch what I've missed someday for for now Im content not knowing what I'm missing. How about you guys? Lost interest in a long time favorite show?
