B,J and the Bear model by AMT

I really want to give AMT mad props for including the show’s true star in the cabin. I also like to pretend that “BJ and the Bear” took place in the “Planet of the Apes” universe and Bear would eventually rise up over his oppressor. Don’t forget to join our new facebook group. Get the […]

Collegeville’s TV assortment

I love this assortment from 1969, the majority of these characters would end up on costumes for decades.

Charlie’s Angels Beauty Set
