Mego Pics: My Current Fave.. Action Jackson


I am really into the recent Mego relaunch. They have me going over to The Target a couple of times a week which if you know me and my sort of disdain of Target you see how weird that is. 

It's not that I dislike Target, I sort of do but I don't hate it or anything. I just don't really enjoy going there but with them being the top toy spot after TRU's demise I have to suck it up and go hunt those grounds... They are the only grounds left, Wal-Mart sucks for toys, at least around here. 


With the recent relaunch of a great toyline of the past, that being Mego and with Mego being a Target exclusive I've been trolling the aisles looking for Dracula in particular but for any of them in general.

When I saw the list of the 1st series dudes I knew that Dracula and Star Trek were must haves with Jimi Hendrix following right behind and behind them was Norm from Cheers. Action Jackson wasn't even on my radar, neither was The Fonz but I ended up getting both and I'm really glad that I did. Action Jackson is a delight. 

Fonz is cool too. I'm sure I'll post some pics of him at some point but I'm hesitant because I already lost the little comb he came with. It's not lost for good I think though. It has to be on the floor around where I found him after he fell of his shelf. I'm really surprised I haven't found it yet to be honest with you... 


I don't know what I like best about him. There are so many things to love, his goofy white boots, his goofy jumpsuit or maybe his goofy/stoic expression. I think though the the thing that I like best about him is his little gun. How small, cute but also violent. I mean, look at him threatening poor little Pikachu there! What a fiend! 

He's really great though. I like how he harkens back to an era where spys and men of action wore jumpsuits. I mean now the only dudes I ever see in them is janitors. The only time I ever wear one is if I have to crawl around under the house to run some cables or something.

We have a super fun show ahead of us this week. We start off with some talk about our recent transfer to a deep sea base including sad conversation I had with Engineer Emily.. 

From there we talk about a movie I saw called Searching. It stars John Cho and was really great.

Then it's on to the main event of the show where we talk the recent passing of a legend, Burt Reynolds. Our way to pay homage to the man is to take a look at his films in the form of a Top 5 Of All The Times! It's really great.

In the final segment we take some calls and text and talk Mego. It's a ton of fun.

Geekfest Rants Ep.358: The Keep - Star Trek Toy Ships


Download this episode (right click and save)

There are good films, bad films, and Cult films.  Well, two out of three ain't bad.  Today on GeekFest Rants Carlos will look at the  Michael Mann WWII horror film, The Keep.  Even the greatest of film makers have a skeleton in their closet and this one might be it for Michael Mann. 

Even with a superb cast like Scott Glenn, Gabriel Byrne, J├╝rgen Prochnow, and Ian McKellen, this one misses the mark.  But is there something good about it that we might want to take a second look at?

Then we'll look at Star Trek toy ships.  From brands like Micro Machines, Furuta, Hallmark, Hot Wheels, and Eaglemoss.  So many choices, so little money

Blockbuster VHS: There's Something About Mary


I found another one of these Blockbuster Cassettes. This one is There's Something About Mary. Man, that movie was a sensation.

I think I saw it 3 times in the theater and I knew fools who saw it more than that. It felt like there hadn't been a really funny movie in awhile.

GI Joe ARAH The Secret Of The Dark Lagoon Order Form

Click for a better/larger view
I've been doing some straightening up out in my garage lately. It started with organizing my comics but it spread out to include the rest of the garage as well. It's fun and very satisfying to get your life in order. 

Anyway I was poking around in a pile of papers over by this TV that I have out there. I have a dedicated VHS dubbing station. It's a TV/VCR combo connected to another VCR. I do copy tapes from time to time. I have a friend that I record some shows for. He doesn't have cable and a VCR was the easiest way to get the shows to him that I could think of. It's fun to tape stuff. IDK. 

A close up pic of the goods
There is some good stuff available in this mail away deal. I love The Whale and I really dig the Sky Hawk. I've owned a few of them over the years but have never had a Whale. That's the hovercraft.

The Martial Arts Unit down on the right side is interesting too. That's Quick-Kick and Jynx? I'm not really sure. If it's Jynx that's dope. She is the female Ninja that works with The Joe Team. I've never had her figure and sort of covet it...

The rest of it is alright I guess. The Cobra Battle Barge is cool. It's basically an innertube like you rent when you're over at Spring Lake for floating around the lagoon but it has three Cobra Troops in it. I kind of love it. Here is a better Pic of it over at YoJoe.com 

The Prices. Click for a better/larger view
The prices seem kind of steep to me. IDK, when you add on the shipping it does IMHO get a bit pricey. Not crazy or anything I just wonder why you'd go to the trouble of ordering this stuff and paying the shipping when they prolly had all this stuff over at Ben Franklin's. It's always fun to get stuff in the mail so you do have to weigh that in when you are considering the overall deal right? I mean, getting Joe stuff in YOUR MAILBOX! That's a bit priceless right?
