International versions of ROM: Space Knight are super fun, and I’m not sure I’d ever seen this one before. As cool as this is, I still think my favourite ROM is when he joined the Action Man team.
Wow, I loved Panninni albums as a kid, I bought them for shows I hadn’t even seen! Mix that with the glory that is the original Spectreman tv series and wow, I want to get these very badly.
Despite his presence in the pop culture hemisphere for five decades, there are few Morgan Freeman-based costumes. However, two of his Electric Company characters did get costumes in the mid-1970s. So many missed opportunities, though, the president from “Deep Impact,” the narrator, Batman’s Q and of course, the guy who says “VISA” weird. The possibilities are ENDLESS!
As a monster collector, I try to keep it 70s and 80s for my own nostalgic journey but also, that 60s stuff is too pricey for me. Exhibit A is above, this thing is gorgeous but unless I find a money tree, it will never be mine. I’m cool with that, I like visiting bakeries, but I won’t eat the donuts.
I never got an actual can of Slime as a kid (way too much shag in the house). I had to settle for vending machine slime, which was ok. Flash forward 20 years, and my daughter learns how to make it in Girl Guides. Thank Bob, her room has a hardwood floor.
