CUSTOM WWF RICO!


Rico was a guy that came around in the Ruthless Aggression era of the WWF.  I never much saw his work as I was primarely a RAW guy and he was on Smackdown.  BUT...I got his RA figure in a huge Ebay lot in 2009 so....

My sewing gal did an AWESOME job in finding the material to match his pants to make this jacket!  So impressed by her.  Yeah, the whole wrestling clothing thing is back on for awhile.  I am still not done yet.

IT FEELS GREAT TO BE A GOOD GUY!

Like Danny Devito said at the end of Twins.  It feels GREAT to be a good guy!  Yup, Wifey and I were real life superheroes last week.

We were driving along and saw two cops and 3 10 year old kids chasing someone.  So I jumped out of the car and had my club with me to give chase haste.  Wifey parked the car at the entrance of this gated park where everyone ran into.  I ran up to the cops and asked what the perp looked like.  One short young cop said he was wearing a striped blue and white shirt.  We looked for about 20 seconds when all of a sudden the perp who was hiding at the entrance to the park made a bolt to leave the park.  Apparantly we had missed him when we ran into the park.
The shirt looked like the one Marty is wearing here.

Anyway he bolts towards my car and Wifey.  She tries to hit him with the car!  Isn't she awesome?  The short young cop is much faster than I and since he knows we are there to help he jumps into the car with Wifey and they chase after the kid.  I run back to the entrance and am POOPED!  Being 42 will do that to you.  Anyways about 20 yards away the young cop with the aid of being in a car has wrestled the kid down.  I come up panting, give the kid the middle finger and Wifey and I take off with the cop's thanks.  Found out the kid had stolen a gold bracelet that the little kids saw and reported it to two cops nearby.

It felt SO good to help the police capture this piece of crap.

It is kind of retribution for that butthead throwing a brick through my car a few years ago.

CHRISTMAS TREE OH, CHRISTMAS TREE..


So I bought this 1 and a half foot Christmas tree at the dollar store to use for my WWF figures when they do a Christmas RAW.  You may remember it from the Christmas of last year.  Well I had no intention of leaving it this way forever.  Yeah it took a year or so because I was burnt out on doing WWF projects....But then Wifey wanted a real Christmas tree for the Monster Cafe this year...And well...


I hardly recognize it!  Raymundo made everything on it.  Even put it on a swanky red base.  Cool huh?  Well now that I am almost finished with other projects I might be going back to WWF stuff this year and next.  Also we added a few lights to it.  It is the first Christmas tree in my life.  As a JW we didn't celebrate Christmas.  So this is really cool and special to me.

STAR WARS DEWBACK!

That is how he looked on Ebay.  Still has the rope around his neck thingie...I always loved this toy.  This was one of the first if not THE first Star Wars big monster ever made.
He looks fantastic!  You wag the tail and the head moves and everything.  Oh my little childhood toy is finally back.  And this one came with two bonuses!  Two tops of pens were found inside the body of it.  Some kid tried stuffing him...HAHA

So thrilling to have this again!  So now I have this and the Tauntaun...For the big creatures I believe I am only missing the Wampa.  I shall have to have Raymundo sculpt the saddle out of resin.

CYOA- MYSTERY OF CHIMNEY ROCK!

Now I live in Mexico where we do not have many things like the U.S. has.  So unfortunately for me, I do not live anywhere near a Goodwill like Derek over at the Goodwill Geek does where it rains awesome books down all the time.

Yeah I had to order mine off of Amazon!  But hey at 1 cent plus $4 shipping it was worth it to me.  This book to me is extra special.  It was my first CYOA that I bought at a book fair in 1979 at Northwoods Elementary school in Doraville GA.
I am sure it planted a seed in me to do Monster Cafe Saltillo.  The imagery!  Oh, it was exciting!
Finally in my possession in 34 years!  I am psyched to explore it under my covers at home!  Reading with one good lamp on to see if I can get out of being killed.  I only had around the first 10 Choose Your Own Adventure books so the ones that came after hold no interest for me.  SO glad I have this puppy back.

DEVIL DINOSAUR!!!

I loved Polar Lights Dinosaur kits.  Really.  I painted the Trike and Terrordactyl just fine but my T-Rex just lacked a certain punch...
 Eh....It is passable....But...
Yeah, it kinda sucks....So I had a real artist paint it up.....Raymundo to the rescue!
Much better right?!?!?!  I got inspiration from the Marvel Comic Devil Dinosaur created by Jack Kirby.

Looks like he is about to march on the city eh?  Love the Spider rearing up to attack him.  Could be a scene from King Kong!
I just love this new paint job.  It really makes the Trex come alive!  Now that I think about it my painting on the other two suck as well...I will get Ray to do them too.

DVD- MADEA'S BIG HAPPY FAMILY!

Ah, the next in line of Madea movies are finally mine!  I think there are only two more I am missing.  Cannot wait for Wifey and I to sit down to enjoy this one.
Madea will be rocking the house tonight!
Can I get a HALLELUJER?
