Twas the Night Before Halloween - Ben Cooper Six Million Dollar Man Costume

I love reading everyone else's awesome blogs about Halloween. I love Halloween, but never got into any of the collectibles. Every year, I go into one of those big box arts and crafts stores and think I'll start building a Lemax village but never do. I have enough storage problems as it is. 

Anyway, when I was in kindergarten, I dressed up as Steve Austin - The Six Million Dollar Man with one of those plastic face and plastic outfit costume sets from Ben Cooper. I have a photo of it somewhere. Every once in awhile, I looked on Ebay but it was either expensive, or just wasn't in the mood. A few weeks ago, I purchased a fully boxed set for less than $20. I'm wearing the mask to our company Halloween "zoom call" party this week. The costume is certainly not going to fit me.

Here it is. Does this give you flashbacks? Did you have a Ben Cooper costume as a kid?

Mythic Legions - Female Orc Army Builders

 Honestly, never been a big fan of orcs across the mythic fantasy genre, but these female orcs looked so bad ass when they were announced, I had to army build them. The one leader was a specific character (have to find her card again) but the army builders are cool as hell.

Mythic Legions Female Skeleton Army Builders

 I've purchased a good chunk of these Mythic Legions figures but have rarely made the effort to photograph them. This group of female skeletons and a set of female orcs have been sitting in my basement ready for some photos for months. Finally took them out last month.

Also check them out at Instagram:

So in honor of Halloween, here are the female skeletons.

NECA Gremlins - Back to School

 Another chance finding of something during my road trip haul a few weeks back. Love these NECA Gremlins. Funny thing about this one, he is wearing actually clothing made of fabric. Pretty cool. Comes with some great accessories, including the Gizmo lunchbox. Wish it would open. Maybe it does but I am always terrified I will break it.

Also comes with bus stop sign, stack of books, baseball mitt, and alternate hand that can hold a baseball.
