Micronauts: Hornetroid

IMAG4117

   This week has been a great one for Vintage Toy finds, here at Quantum Multiverse. Earlier in the week I found a Penosh Place Voltron Black Lion for 79¢ at a second hand shop. That was a really fun find. I suppose, since the legs were tucked in, they thought the piece was broken. It wasn’t. Except for the missing pilot, it was all there.

   Yesterday I received two new toys, a 3¾” Ming the Merciless by Mattel, and most importantly a boxed Micronauts’ Hornetroid, by Mego! It is missing one piece, and it is pretty loose, but it gives me all the nostalgia feels. This toy, along with the Shogun Warriors’ Godzilla, were two of the first things that I had bought with my own money. Great times 🙂

   Last week I had picked up a Kenner Super Powers’ Wonder Woman, a Masters of the Universe Extendar, and Skeletor! 👍

   This has to be the absolute ultimate version of Logan! I’ve seen it touted as a “Classic” version of Wolverine, but the outfit isn’t the original togs that he donned back in his first appearances in The Incredible Hulk or even in Giant-Sized X-Men. It’s still a sweet looking figure. We’ve all been fooled by looks before, but I’ve heard some great things about Revoltech.

Robotech Macross VF-1J 1:6 Cockpit Diorama Digital Sound System

    This is incredible. Heck, it had better be with a price tag of $1380.00 [USD]! Click the image to be taken to the site. Make sure you check out ALL of the available photos of this piece. I guess the pre-order went well since they are all out of stock. Let’s just marvel at the wonderful detail while we try to forget the insane price tag, and not to mention the shipping cost of $440 [USD].

Macross Plus: VF-11 Thunderbolt

   I’ve had this image of a VF-11 Thunderbolt backed up on a hard drive for nearly two decades. Once upon a time, I was a rabid fan for all things Macross. Animation, Toys, Art, and Music. Nothing was more impressive to me than the Valkyries, Veritechs to my fellow Robotech fans. Anyhow, I was browsing some of my hoarded images and ran across this one. For me, it encapsulates everything that is beautiful about these fighters. Let me see if I can dig up a few more for a mini gallery of my past passion.

The History of Dick Grayson

   “Faust” walks us through the entire history of Dick Grayson. At least up to the pre-New 52 storylines. This video was my gateway into the world of fan generated content on YouTube. I had watched videos on YT before, but it’s always been little clips on my computer. Then I picked up a “Smart” TV, and that changed many ways that I consumed content. The now defunct “Comlink” got me into watching videos where people would discuss properties. Faust introduced me to the fact that a small one person, or small group of people, could offer substantial content that is quality.

   This video sparked my obsession with discussion based content, and tossed me right into the world of podcasting as well.

   Anyways… if you are a fan of the original Robin, I am for the version that George Pérez brought us in “The New Teen TItans“, then this video is a must-see.
