Mego Pics! Norm Peterson From Cheers! Drunken Toy Fun!

I love Cheers. I think it's great. It may be the best sitcom of all the times, either that or Mash. I don't know I haven't given it a ton of thought, that's a lie. I just don't want to get into it right now. Maybe/For Sure later though? (potential top 5 list?).Anyway, I love Cheers but didn't really think that I needed action figures from the show. I was wrong. I totally do. I didn't know it though, until I bought Norm..As we've discussed in the past I am WAY into the Mego relaunch that is taking place right as we speak. It's great and if you aren't down yet it's only because you haven't bought any of them because they are awesome and that is indisputable.Norm was the last one on my list of the current releases. I wasn't sure if I was going to get him or not  but when Target dropped the price down to 12.99 how could I pass it up? I mean look.. he comes with a little mug full of cold, foamy beer! Best accessory ever!
I like that pic up…

Erin Grey As Col. Wilma Deering And Some Thoughts On Her Blaster.

I just really like this pic of Erin Grey as Col. Wilma Deering from Buck Rogers. I was so into that show. Man, I am sure that I have posted this pic before but I came across it in a folder and decided, why not? 

I'm going to use that one up there as a wallpaper for a minute. I like how stern she looks. Just so serious. I also dig the widow's peak helmet. It's nice how the point comes down the middle of her face.

Here is another one from the same folder that I found the first one in. I'm into that blaster. I wonder how hard it would be to find a replica of it..... 
I'm back. I looked. It's super easy to find a Buck Roger's one and they aren't super expensive.  I saw them for as low as 65 bucks. 
If you want a Wilma Deering one though, well, I don't know what to tell you. I couldn't find one and it appears to be a bit different then Bucks. Maybe it's the same. That pic up there is the only one that I've looked at and this is really the first t…

Happy Easter from Paul From The Diamond Center and Your Pals Here at ISeeRobots Radio!

I found a VHS that was 6 hrs of Kung Fu, not the old one but the new-ish one and it was dope because it was chocked full of local adverts and KBHK TV 44 Bumpers! I was so stoked and what made it even better was this great pic that I got from an Easter Promotion that Paul From The Diamond Center was running at the time! It was so timely with Easter right around the corner! 
Paul was/is a Bay Area Icon... His commercials ran on all the local stations and added a nice bit of texture and fun to the day to day grind. Man, nothing beats a wacky local commercial! Here is an example of Paul's work..

Dude was a genius. I've never bought a diamond but if I could travel back in time to the 1989 and do so I'd for sure get it from Paul!
