On the right, Attacking Martian... 

If you want to view Paradise, simply look around and view it.

Great Turok cover!
Yeah, those Turok covers really grabbed your attention when you were a Dino Kid perusing the spinner racks back in the '60/'70s. I bought a copy of #58 off-the-rack back in 1967 at the age of 8 and added it to my small Turok stash. Those were all read to death and slipped through the cracks of time. But, about 4 years ago I became obsessed with buying back all of my old Turoks and getting as many of the other issues as possible. In a Dino Kid fever I managed to put together the whole run of 130 issues, the Giant, and the Golden Comics Digest, for around $700. I went through several upgrades for copies below G (2.0) and ended up with a pretty nice run ranging from G-VF/NM. Really glad to have them.  :)

Hey Friend
When and where did you get  this killer mask?
I have seen a few over the hills and such but NEVER one like this in NM state. Fantastic,!!
Dennis Druktenis through a Scary Monsters Scaresale in the early 2000s. I bought 4 of the Don Post reissues from Dennis in "new" condition at some good prices- Metaluna Mutant $50, Mole People $40, Dracula $50, boxed Creature $100.

Probably just Kelly Freas' creativity at work. He was quite the SF illustrator.

That robot on the left is called Robbie Robot, believe it or not. I have him in his original box. He's pretty hard to find...

I got my Robbie Robot about 16 years ago, I think I tried him back then and he still worked. I've got a bunch more old robots. Here's another one...

Couple of Alpha Video SF Box Sets with robots:



I ordered these from Oldies.com a few years ago. The robots are cheap but I like the look of the whole package. The DVDs are standard Alpha PD fare. Those are volumes 1 and 3. They didn't have #2 or I would have ordered it as well.

Speaking of Alpha Video I'm probably one of the few who are still interested in maintaining a collection of their DVDs. The quality is typically rock bottom and the vast majority of their offerings are PD material. I like to collect all of the old genre DVDs from companies like Alpha, Diamond, and anyone who produced genre DVDs. It takes up a lot of room but I feel all of those are important to the history of collecting genre movies and they're worth hanging onto. Most people have probably upgraded well past those Alphas. Even Mill Creek PD Box Sets are an upgrade because of the space-saving aspect. I also like to collect the various box sets from companies like Mill Creek, Brentwood/BCI, St. Claire Vision, TGG, etc. All of this results in a ridiculous amount of film duplication. I'm too much of a packrat I guess.  ;D
