I don't know why I waited so long to make these necessary thing for my wrestling world. I just figured everyone had some and I did different stuff to be well....different. But I could hold out no longer.
I wanted mine to be real. Not paper or anything cheap.
My artist made it out of vinyl and stitched it together. Awesome! It looks real as heck.
Very pleased with this. Next I gotta do some ring barriers! I plan on making another set a little bit bigger though.
Huge fan of Arnold Schwarzneggar's Pumping Iron movie. It got me to work out when I was 17. He was the greatest bodybuilder of all time IMO. Simply fantastic. I am thinking of adding Arnold is Numero Uno at the bottom of this pic. JUST like at the end of the movie! It just needs something else.
So Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Finally after 20 years I am in the Christmas spirit. I cannot really celebrate it too much as I have no money for even a Turkey. Fire Marshall took it all when he had us made improvements to the cafe which we still have not recovered from. But oh well. 2014 is going to be OUR year! I will get all care packages sent off in 2014! I am sure of it. I wanted to do a custom Christmas tree with my artist but the Boiler Room took too long.
Bret Hart the champion celebrates Christmas!
Santa even comes along for the merriment!
Bret Hart goes to thank his fans for their continued support!
What? What is this? Santa wallops Bret Hart with that Christmas sack!
Why...That is not Santa at all! That is TEST! That dirty lowlife son of a.....
Test mocks the audience! Challenging Bret for a championship title match!
No seriously....Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you get the toys you want next year.
Ok...I have a few people that read this blog that are into GI Joe more than I am. That is a matter of geography though and personal messups on my part.
So I have a question....WHAT would you do if you could do customs for the 3.75 inch GI Joe line?
I have thought of only one so far. This...
I think it would be an awesome creation. But hopefully I plan to move away from Mexico and get a little place in Florida, or Georgia....With woods outback. I was thinking of doing a Bivouac kind of thing.
Anyway I place the question to you guys. What would you do? My artist can do just about anything mind you.
I have no idea why but Clara Peller made an impression on me as a kid. Kinda wish I had a grandma like her. I loved those Wendy's commercials.
So with that said....I unveil my custom Where's the Beef Clara Peller TSHIRT!
The front of it!
The back of it!
Now my tribute to Where's the Beef is complete!
And if anyone complains about it...I have a messege....
Yeah an "artist" warned me not to put his "image" on a shirt. He didn't get Clara Peller's family permission to draw it did he? I found it on the internet, so anything goes. I will walk around Mexico proudly wearing this shirt while NO ONE will have a clue who it is but me.
In eager anticipation of what Super 7 and Funko will be doing with the Universal Monster line I just could not wait.
So I took my extra Burger King Dracula and made a proper cape. JUST in case Super 7 decides not to redo the original Monsters. I think it came out pretty good. If you notice it is made out of the same material as the Ken Shamrock robe. Had to put him on the Buried Alive set as that is the only monstery thing I had laying around.
Funko has posted a major, major announcement. They have announced a ton of upcoming ReAction Figures, 6″ Legacy Figures, Pop! Vinyl Figures and more. Included in the announcement is that beloved, and short lived, sc-fi series Firefly will be getting both the ReAction and the 6″ Legacy Action Figure treatment. Also, another Joss Whedon series, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, will be getting the ReAction Figure treatment. Funko’s ReAction line are 3.75″ figures, modeled in the style of classic 70′s and 80′s action figures. Think classic Kenner Star Wars for a visual style. In Funko’s own words, their 6″ Legacy line is said to rival the Star Wars Black Series in terms of style and articulation.
What in the hell is that about? They announce all these great lines, do a 1979 Alien line....Then jump from them to the nineties Buffy and Firefly? I have never seen those shows and will never. I thought this was supposed to be about VINTAGE stuff! They announced they were doing Universal Monsters, Escape from New York, and Classic Star Trek before. Why start out with nineties properties that I feel have a LESSER fan base? Buffy and Firefly are for single guys that are old and are usually not married who have to have fantasies about Sarah Michelle Geller....
Oh well....Someone let me know when Universal Monsters and you know....COOL lines come out. Sheesh....
For some reason I get all mistyeyed when it comes to movies my father and I liked. He always saw them first then carefully and artfully explained the movie to whet my appetite.
Two movies are engrained into my psyche. One being Raiders of the Lost Ark and then there was the Prophecy! It is a good little film which I have on VHS and DVD. It is SO crying for a remake with today's technology. Wowie! I love this film though. I am glad I made my own shirt of the logo.
So my sewing gal accidently made a pair of camofladge pants. I didn't ask for them mind you. She just somehow got confused. I threw them in a box and forgot about them. Then 3 weeks later I was reminded of a TNA angle where some guys wore camo called Aces and Eights. So I tried them out on one of the members.
They seem to work pretty good. This is Drew from Aces and Eights. Again another former WWE talent.
And here is a group shot of the stuff I have had made recently. I am having a ball!
Yeah...Originally this joker was named Friday. The WWF changed it the next time we saw him into Kimchee.
He looks pretty good. Guess you will never guess who is under the mask...
Well I will have to tell ya. Since Jakks did not make a Kimchee and since I had a few extra Chris Benoit's hanging around, I decided to use them. Let us face it. They ain't EVER gonna be making any more Benoit's ever again since the guy wacked his family. And I think they will be worth something one day. So I am holding onto them but at the same time using them too.
The mask is not perfect. I gotta paint it a little better.
THIS is a doozy! After doing all my customs with my artist I wanted to do something REALLY cool. An awesome playset. The boiler room brawl. To my knowledge there were only two in WWF history. Both involving Mankind! I wanted something with two levels on it. Not just one. I wanted a place to play up above.
Look at the frickin SIZE of this thing! OMG! It is twice the size of a Real Scale Ring!
That is Raymundo the artist of this monster!
Uh oh! The undertaker has engaged Mankind in the boiler room! They are fighting it out! OOPS! High Voltage is spelled wrong. Gotta fix that one.
Mankind puts Undertaker's face in the toxic waste! UGHHH! YUCK!
Mankind is choking Taker up on the catwalk! OMG! Take a look at the clock in the background. So funny!
They are brawling all over this dirty looking boiler room!
Oh no! Undertaker is shoving his head into the circuitry board...Check out the caution yellow tape on the floor.
Taker is chasing Mankind up the staircase....Oh my!
To close out the match Taker pins Mankind with a chokehold on top of some tanks. HAHA! Check out the headphones! Not to mention the brown staining done on the pipes!
Whaddya know? It even works as a playset for a 6 inch Batman!
Batman takes out the scum of Gotham City!
Uh oh! He meets the Icey Mr. Freeze!
I cannot BELIEVE how big this thing is! Wifey is gonna kill me!
Wow! Look at my face! I will definitely be logging alot of miles on this incredible playset. Check out the guns too. Not bad for a 41 year old man!
