Happy New Years everyone! What a year it has been here at the Toy Museum! Record numbers thanks to the wonderful group of toy blogs, geek related enthusiasts, and Family Guy related costume swapping. I really get a kick out of sharing my wacky things to you all, and love the feedback! Big things to come for 2010, the Toy Museum will be moving! Things might get a little crazy in the weeks ahead, please hang in there. Look forward to a new GI Joe vehicles run amok at that location, it will amaze!

Festivus at the Cantina, Part 6

Luke: Why do you all have blasters. My Uncle Owen says that blasters are dangerous!

Everyone: To protect from sudden distracting Tinsel invasions.

Luke: That sounds stupid, besides my trilanket will protect me from...

Festivus at the Cantina, Part 5

Han: How did you come up with Festivus Obi Wan?

Obi Wan: Many Christmases ago, I went to buy a doll for someone I was watching over.

Obi Wan: I reached for the last one they had, but so did another man.

Obi Wan: As I rained blows upon him, I realized there had to be another way.

Leia: What happened to the doll?

Obi Wan: It was destroyed. But out of that a new holiday was born: a Festivus for the rest of us!

Han: That must have been some doll.

Obi Wan: She was.

Luke: Oh, God.

Festivus at the Cantina, Part 4

Feats of Strength

I said, Feats of Strength!

Why does that guy always jump up into my camera space?

Feats of Strength! If Chewbacca get's pinned, everyone gets to eat.

We might be here for a while...

Luke: It's a Festivus Miracle!

Festivus at the Cantina, Part 2; Airing of Grievances

Han and Lando finally have a intense discussion on who gets to wear the cool smuggler uniform

A decision was almost made...

But then Greedo aired a Grievance on Han, and was shot.

Then Leesub learned a new trick...

And everyone was distracted AGAIN!

We will take a break for the Feats of Strength is up next!

Festivus at the Cantina, Part 1

Looks like the Mos Eisley Cantina is celebrating a little Festivus this year.

They have constructed a really nice and sturdy unadorned aluminum pole. That should get things going...

Oh No!


Looks like Leesub has claimed the pole.

Now that everyone is distracted, we better take a break before the Airing of Grievances.

Why did Lando Take Han's clothes and Why is it so popular?

My blog isn't the most active place in the world, but for some reason this week an old post has really been getting attention. I guess the debate is back on why did Lando take Han's costume at the end of Empire Strikes Back? Maybe Leesub likes the blue pants vest combo?

Anybody know why people are searching for this topic so much this week?

Leesub Sirln, the most inappropriate Star Wars figure of all time.

Earlier this year I upped my nerd ante by starting to collect Star Wars Cantina figures. Most are pretty fun and creative, others are just plain strange. Then there is Leesub Sirln, a great toy for any young collector. Hasbro? Where are her pants?

Oh it gets worse.

What happens when she drops her drink?

I really hate to turn into one of those blogs butt...

Yikes! Can you imagine being a Chinese toy maker/painter. What a production line that must have been!

The box states, "Includes Droid Part!"

I really don't want to know what she does with that!

Non Scaling Transformer Lesson of the Day

Don't stand between opposing sides.

Also look into purchasing your own shoulder mounted cylinder thingy.

Perceptor This!

Last month I stumbled upon a reissue Transformers Perceptor at Toys R Us. I had no idea they were re-re-releasing him. I was excited to say the least.

Something about old generation 1 Transformers makes them so special. They certainly don't make them like they used to. I think a line in Beast Wars mentions diecast as a lost art form. They sure didn't design these to fake break like the newer ones do. One wrong move and snap, there goes a leg.

I especially like the shinny plastic chrome pieces. If you touch them once, they are finger printed forever. It can be pretty brittle too. You might as well wear white gloves when even touching these things. A nice feature is the box can be used for storage. They need to do that more often.

The instructions say 'Not a working Microscope.' To my surprise though, the scope magnifies a bit. There is a small reflecting mirror, and if you get something small in a good spot, it does magnify maybe 2 to 3 times.

Perceptor is the ultimate geek Transformer. You know something poindextory will come out of his metal flanges. Slightly high in price, but better than Ebays, he is well worth the hunt if he's still on the shelf.

Marvel; Handful of Heroes; Red Hulk

Only a handful of heroes left to show, then I guess its back to the store for another pack. Talk about easy blogging.

A millisecond later Cyclops destroys my camera's flash.

Magneto would also be devastated knowing he is 100% plastic.

Marvel; Handful of Heroes; Nick Fury

Who's better than Nick Fury? (Find out tomorrow).

Marvel; Handful of Heroes; Mark 1

Is it me, or does Mark 1 look like he is going to spank someone?

Sunday, November 22, 2009

Marvel; Handful of Heroes; Iron Man

If Iron Man finds out he is actually Plastic Man...

Saturday, November 21, 2009

Marvel; Handful of Heroes; Absorbing Man

I don't know the Absorbing Man until now, he's one of Thor's baddies. Strange that Thor himself didn't make the cut for the Handful of heroes.

Marvel; Handful of Heroes; Wolverine

Do I detect a hint of sparkle on Wolverine?

I was going to do an elaborate claw scratch down the screen, but I got really lazy. Feel free and do the effects for me and send it back to me, and I will post it for you.

Marvel; Handful of Heroes; Rhino

Looks like he's ice skating.

Marvel; Handful of Heroes; Doc Octopus

Continuing with my shameless handful of heroes bumping up my post count event, here's Doc Oc! He's actually pretty cool in detail. Green fits him well, and he takes up lots of counter space. I am still not too happy about that hard plastic though. Sparkle Venom is pretty. Looks like I got more Spiderman villains then anything in these 2 packs I found. Hmmm I wonder what I will post tomorrow?

Marvel; Handful of Heroes of Crap

Finally these guys make it to Boise, only to be slightly less cooler then I originally thought they would be. The good news is I only have to buy a few more packs, instead of the dozens upon dozens to collect all 120. My first gripe is the plastic. I was really hoping they would be of M.U.S.C.L.E. Men plastic caliber. The same type of plastic where you can't decide to eat it or play with it. Or, when the plastic bends a bit, the figures kind of bounce off each other. These Marvel pieces are solid hard! They do have sparkles in them though. Nothing beats a sparkle Venom! He's pretty. The price is insane too! What are they thinking, you could get cheaper crap out of a quarter machine at the grocery store, or cereal box, or fast food land. But Sparkle Venom is pretty.

Now I know I am really lazy with the post count of late. So now I can shamelessly post one of these guys every day for a while! Heres Juggernaut. I picked up that pack mainly for him. He looked almost like a M.U.S.C.L.E. man, but again not as cool.
