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! 👍
In the 75 years since Wonder Woman started bringing truth and love to the world in All-Star Comics #8 the Amazon Princess has been immortalized in many different forms. In this series, we’ll lasso examples of Wonder Woman collectibles through the decades, which will help you appreciate the first great comic book superheroine’s history and […]
I read this article earlier today, and enjoyed it thoroughly. Did you know about Ideal’s small toy line representing female superheroes of DC? I didn’t! Really neat stuff. Anyhow, it gives me something else to look for out in the wild, or at second hand shops.
Today, my wife surprised me with this awesome gift. She had purchased the graphic from a second hand store. It used to be a T-Shirt. I love how she constructed the background. It makes the 21×16 inch piece pop. It made my already good day 😍
I remember watching this in the late 70’s but that was the last time. Currently, I am attempting to get a copy to watch and pseudo-review. There are copies on Amazon, honestly they don’t seem like they are worth the price. I would rather rent or pay the price for a digital download.
This version of Wonder Woman (Cathy Lee Crosby) did not wear the comic book costume including the tiara trademark and her “secret identity” of Diana Prince was not all that secret. The film follows Wonder Woman, assistant to government agent Steve Trevor (Kaz Garas) as she pursues a villain named Abner Smith (Ricardo Montalban) who has stolen a set of codebooks containing classified information about U.S. government field agents.
So here at Quantum Multiverse, as you might have discovered, we are geeks. As geeks we partake in geek media. No surprises there 😉 This is just a list of current shows, TV-YouTube-Netflix-Amazon Prime-ETC, that keep us going. There are movies, audio books/plays, Podcasts (& SMODcasts), Comics, Blog posts, Books, Toys, Games, and what-not that are also a factor. I may get to breaking those down at some point but this is a simple and easily digested post and a good place to begin.
Chuck is a fun, Sci-Fi take on a Nerd gaining superhuman abilities. As the intersect, Chuck, is a powerful tool in the international spy scene.
I’ve fallen behind on my view of this show but it is a pretty great show about a young Ninja who’s actual special ability is turning foes into friends.
Kevin Smith and the guys at the Secret Stash in New Jersey. I can’t get enough of this program.
We recently began our Amazon Prime account and this is one of the shows that we stream from there. I like it better than the original Stargate SG-1 for the depth that it has.
This show was my weekly go-to show about Star Wars news for a year now. The host, Ken Napzok, is moving on to bigger and better things but I’ll keep tuning in to see what the Popcorn Network has in store.
The oldies are still the best. This series holds a special place in my heart and in my Netflix que. I’ll also watch it on Saturday nights on MeTV (over the air digital antenna channel)
This is one of those shows that I can watch all the way through the eight seasons and then start it all over again.
A great YouTube channel that contains the Jedi Council and more.
Since Top Gear (BBC) is now defunct, I found a new appreciation for classic cars and the art that Danny’s crew can create with them.
I found RetroBlasting on YouTube in the Autumn of 2014. I can’t say enough great things about this channel. They cover a very wide variety of vintage toys, cartoons and movies. The sardonic wit and the clever comedic element is what keeps me coming back for more of their videos. I now know shit about My Little Pony than I ever knew I wanted to know. #RetroBlasting has reinforced my geekness, affirmed my nerdiness, and informed my dorkieness. For that, I thank them.
Although not as good (doesn’t even touch it) as the previous Avengers cartoon, this has just enough obscure characters involved that keeps my interest, for the most part.
At first I didn’t like this version of the TMNT. I was a huge fan of the 2003 version of the show. After a few episodes I was sold. The show pays homage to old cartoon, including the 2003 version of the title.
Wonder Woman! Another MeTV Saturday night staple. Lynda Carter was one of my first crushes and her smile still makes my evening better. My wife has that effect on me every day 🙂
This one is fun to make fun of. Saturday nights on MeTV has a block of time reserved for this great old show.
I am speechless. THIS is Daredevil. It’s like Frank Miller opened up his arteries and out sprang this Netflix series, magically.
This show is still one of the best written and directed shows of its kind. It could almost be a story created by Stan Lee. I watch this on Netflix, over and over.
