Pod Stallions Shorts: Dear Santa

We here at Pod Stallions H.Q. haven’t fully given up on the notion of Santa, or some similarly benevolent but less popular entity, taking requests for the Big Day. So in ultra-modern fashion, we’re broadcasting our Wish Lists rather than risking the letters getting lost in the holiday shuffle. Who knows, maybe someone’s listening and […]

Manta & Moray Bubble Animal

Yet another addition to my burgeoning Tarzan and the Super 7 collection of Rack Toys, Manta and Moray were the Aquaman and Mera of the Filmation superhero universe.  DC sued Filmation which is why we never saw more of the duo.
