McCain and Obama toys

Phew! Just in the nick of time getting these guys!

I imagine in a week one of these will be more of a collectors item than the other. But its hard to tell if winning or loosing will make the better buck. Not that I ever want to sell them, I think they are a hilarious addition to the museum.

The box art, and labeling is kind of funny too. Take note the irony of the choking hazard labels.

DOh! We now know what crazy right wing radio stations Dan listens to! :)

'tisk, to think I used to like this blog before it got political!'

Water Goes by on a Cruise Ship

Wow, I leave the blog alone for one week and there is total chaos. I need to look into getting a locking cabinet for my Cobra Crimson Guards. What a mess they made, canceling the Batman Cape Weaving documentary I had worked so hard setting up. They even burned the film, so that important info is all gone! Oh well.

The Cruise was really fun and relaxing. As you can see in this action packed You Tube clip. I didn't find any neat toys out there though. BUT, I did snag the next two packs of M.A.S.S. device pieces from Hasbro Toy shop! I'm sure they are going to be on shelves soon, but I couldn't wait for 'Arise Serpentor, Arise!' which is by far the funniest GI Joe mini series. I should review that later, don't want to spoil it for you six.

Okay I can't wait! I love how its a blatant attempt to sell the next series of toys. Hawk and Beachhead are the new replacement leaders for Duke and Flint. Serpentor and Dr. Mindbender are the new Cobra villain leads. Then there are all the new vehicles. The Skystriker and HISS tank are out for the Conquest and that wierd Cobra vehicle with the three wheels and chariot thingy. Cobra Commander is absolutely hilarious as he tries to stop his generals from replacing him. He really should just shoot all of em for the insubordination, but I guess that doesn't work in kids cartoons. I also like how the GI Joe team looses every battle for the DNA. They must go 0-50 before they finally dominate in the battle for Washington DC. And how stupid are the Joes? Cobra keeps going directly to the graves of the famous leaders, and Hawk keeps saying he don't understand what Cobra is doing at all the grave sites? Maybe stealing the bodies Hawk??? The scene where Hawk flies off in a Jet Pack is so hammy - its out of know where - Like you meet someone at the store, then say gotta go, and take off in a rocket pack! Then There is Sargent Slaughter. Oh boy, what a dude. He gets captured like 20 times, and escapes 20 times. He talks the talk about no one being able to knock him down, and 2 seconds later he's down and captured again. I deffinatly recommend this movie, but do yourself a favor and watch the whole thing in one sitting. It will totally mess you up!

Tragedy at Cobra Crimson Guard Week!

Although hard to understand, when the great leaders of Cobra Crimson Guard week get unhappy with the current 'specialness' that the Cobra Crimson Guard display, certain duties must be performed. Like killing them all, and then finding new stronger members for the team. Have you ever been part of a cult that has killed you for not pleasing your leaders? Share!

It's Cobra Crimson Guard Week!

The Leaders have Arrived!

The Cobra Crimson Guard Circle of Sharing and Caring... I mean, Squishing and Destroying, is extra happy when the Cobra Crimson Guard leaders Tomax and Xamot come to town! Much happiness and joy is celebrated when the founding brothers speak and give gifts. It is not uncommon for late night story telling from Tomax, and interpretive dance from Xamot! Do you do interpretive dance for friends and family? Share!

Standing Tall for Cobra Crimson Guard

The elitest members of Cobra Crimson Guard are carried into battle in this fashion. AND then they are mowed down by Heavy Duty and his machine gun. Its really sad that the best of the best troops get killed in this fashion. But there is always a Cobra Crimson Guard troop on the bottom, ready to go to the top! Have you ever climbed the latter of death? Please Share!

It's Cobra Viper Week!

The Cobra Crimson Guard Spinning Saw Attack!

This one is truly horrific. When after a long and tiresome battle with GI Joe, Cobra Crimson Guard often feel the need to spend their remaining funds at the Mall. When they walk into a store and see prices they don't agree with, the form the Cobra Crimson Guard Spinning Saw Attack formation and cut prices in half! I wish they did that with the pack of Cobra Crimson Guard figures that I bought. Do you have any attack methods in stores?

The Dreaded Cobra Crimson Guard Red Pyramid!

During the heat of battle with Cobra Crimson Guard, a common tactic is to 'Pyramid Up'. Legend says that some of the Crimson Guard accountants used pyramid schemes at the office. It worked well making Cobra lots of money, so they thought it would work just as well on the battle field. It did not, and many of the first Crimson Guard members were killed by Heavy Duty mowing them over with his machine gun. It was a sad day. But they soon perfected the move, and it is now one of the most feared formations in battle! Do you have a formation that you like to use in battle?

You think Friday the 13th is bad? Cobra Crimson Guard members do most of their killing on Monday the 13th! Before the hunt, they limber up in the dreaded Cobra Crimson Guard Circle of Caring and Sharing. Yes they are working on a more menacing name for it. Do you have a circle that you would like to share?

My Little Pony: Sunset Sweety

This wittle pony is so cute! I like how its head is tilted back in the sweetest fasion. Makes me want to break out in song and dance...

Well this isn't going anywhere! That is it for My Little Pony Week!!!

Thanks Cobra, you canceled the rest of the best week ever!

Welp, I'm off on vacation! Thought it would be nice to go on a cruise while the country is in financial ruin! In the mean time, I have planned posts on the fine weaving methods of Batman's Cape. Not many people realize the many different styles of Batman Cap weaving methods. I think this will be a real treat. So stay tunned for Sunday's first chapter.

My Little Pony: Tangerine Twinkle

This My Little Pony has the most adorable sparkle freckles!

I don't even know what that means, but it can't be good.

I wish Cobra would stop messing with My Little Pony week!

My Little Pony: Lovey Dovey

I was thinking about gum drops and cotton candy today and it occurred to me this toy blog favors the Army-Robot-Super Hero toys too often. So I thought to make it even, I would start highlighting My Little Ponies this week.

They are so Cute! Look at the colors!

Hmmm. Seem to be having display difficulties. Please ignore...

Now look at the fine jewel embedding work done on this Ponies Butt.

I think that the combination of pink and purple is sure pretty.

Yeah, something is really wrong with my picture loader. Please dismiss.

The problem with most of todays action figures is the absence of purple sparkle hair. -Fabulous!

I bet Zartan could use sparkle hair. It would certainly end some debates.


I'm going to have to contact my IT guy on this issue.

Please stay tuned to My Little Pony week.

That's Three Hawks!

And one quick trip closer to the mental institute.

Hawk Hawk Hawk. I told you I had to invest in a few General Hawks because of the constant wear and tear he will go through in being the number one GI Joe Cobra will pick on. Well now I am insured, at least until the 30th anniversary of GI Joe a Real American hero collection comes out.

Now don't get me wrong. I don't buy dozens of the same figures or vehicles, like others that I have seen reports on lately. Why anyone would need over 10 Cobra Rattlers is ridiculous. Maybe five HISS tanks, but not ten Rattlers! Troop building is okay, and Hasbro needs to do a better job of suppling us with troop packs (especially B.A.T.s) That's my rant for now on that. ANYHOW...

So with that, old Hawk transfers the burden of power to the new Hawk.

Decorating Tip of the week

Whatever you do, never place Dreadnoks near fake fine crystal. Dreadnok's devalue anything near or around them!

And it's highly possible that when your back is turned, the fine crystal will either be stolen, or smashed onto the floor.
