Here's some cool stuff I got recently.

The X-Plus CYCLOPS and DRAGON from THE 7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD:


A closer look, as they start to scrap.  We all know how that turned out!


AWESOME T-shirt transfers, courtesy of Gillman-Fan.  These are so cool!  A big ol' THANKS to Jeff!



FINALLY scored a tagged Bandai KING KONG, plus 2 bonus dvds!!  Got all three for $68.00, including shipping!  The "chili pepper" behind his head that looks like he's wearing a hat is one of my wife's kitchen knick-knacks!


My ol' simian sibling, SCATTER, sent me these fantastic UNBROKEN, KING KONG '77 glasses.  The pic doesn't show how pristine and awesome they really are!  Thanks from the bottom of my hairy heart, Gary!!  They were worth the wait.


And last, but certainly not least, my 19 year old daughter, Caitlin, made this groovy "Giant Gorilla/King Kong" for my birthday:


Tearing the balloon truck in half!!


She even signed it!!  She's still my sweetie pie!!


Hope everyone enjoyed the pics!

Love those X-plus Harryhausen fig's.

$68 for that Bandai Kong plus the two dvd's is a good deal.

Your daughter's sculpture is really cool!

Complete and utter coolness, P!  Love the sculpture.  I have a few hand made items from my kiddos in my collection and consider them priceless.

NOTHING beats that sculpture from your daughter UP!! That's awesome. And I'm thrilled the glasses made it in one piece. I couldn't even bring myself to pack them..........I let UPS do it. So I could KILL somebody if they broke 'em.

See, that's the paranoia you get when you are a former UPS driver..........I KNOW how they handle stuff marked "Fragile" LOL!!

Backstory, I've been promising to send out the Kong glasses for months, but I was so sure the idiots at UPS or the Post Office would shatter them I couldn't bring myself to do it.

Thanks everyone!  I gotta tell ya, the UPS guy bangs on my door this afternoon, and my daughter (who's been staying with us this week) answers the door.  The dude shouts, " U.K. Primate?! ".  My daughter is like, what?  U.K. Primate?  Then she remembers my UMA name!  That ol' rascal, Scatter, addressed the KONG glasses to:  U.K. Primate!!  I LOVED IT!!!

Once you become famous as a villainous wrassler named "Golden Gorilla", and then grab a moniker like "Unknown Primate"..........well, "Mark" just doesn't sound right anymore.

I almost forgot - I picked this up at K-Mart last week.  It was the last one, along with a DRACULA (which I might purchase later).  I have a special operation planned for this Franky!
