Simpsons Celebrity - Series 2

Love the Simpsons. Love that so many celebrities were on the show. Love that NECA has resurrected the Simpsons line as a 25th Anniversary tribute and releasing mostly celebrity figures.

Series 2 includes Mark Hammill, Tony Hawk, Lucy Lawless, Britney Spears, and Maggie Simpson in Pink Jumpsuit along with the three members of The Who - Roger Daltry, Pete Townsend, and John Entwistle.

Series 3 was just announced.

Wave 3, which is slated for release in June, includes Stephen King, Leonard Nimoy, Bret "Hitman" Hart, Penn and Teller and R.E.M.

Hope Series 4 has Aerosmith. Larry King, Ringo Starr, Neil Patrick Harris, Brooke Shields, and Johnny Carson. 

So many possibilities....

Big Freakin Godzilla

I haven't seen the movie yet...heard it's great.

Had the 18 inch Mattel Shogun Godzilla from the late 70s and early 80s. Loved that thing.

So had to get the big freakin JAKKS Pacific Godzilla currently at big box toy stores.

Here's the 18 inch Shogun Godzilla...for nostalgia's sake.

And Dork Dimensions already did a side by side comparison of the two. Very cool.

Enterbay Chicago Bulls Derrick Rose

These 1/6th scale basketball figures are phenomenal. So far, Enterbay has released Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Lebron James, Blake Griffin and Derrick Rose.

Being a native of Chicago, I already purchased MJ and have now added Rose to the collection.

Funko "Vintage" Alien Figures

I had previously posted photos of these in their package. Love these things. What a cool story that they were prototypes back in the late 70s, canceled because of the movies R rating and then produced in 2014. Need the rest of the crew now....and the entire cast of Aliens.

Funko "Kenner" Alien compared to Hot Toys Snap Kits "Aliens" Alien.

Elrond and Prologue Elves - Lord of the Rings - Custom Puzzle

This was probably one of the first dioramas I ever did with the intention of turning it into a puzzle. It wasn't until now that I ordered the puzzle.

I used Toybiz's Prologue Elrond figure and five prologue elves - some with their long blade and some with their bows and arrows in the second row, just like the intro to the Lord of the Rings- Fellowship of the Ring movie.

Glad I picked these up - very bummed I missed the Elf Archers that came in the two pack with a Berserker Uruk-hai.

Newest Jigsaw Puzzles - Vintage Kenner Star Wars

I see this and makes me want to complete the set. Not sure how many I am missing or how many accessories are missing. Will have to check it out some day.

Anyway, another set of toys turned into a jigsaw puzzle. This is one I think I will have to redo. Need to stack with more levels so there isn't so much blank space at top and bottom.

Newest Jigsaw Puzzles - The Simpsons

Years ago Playmates toys released an awesome run of Simpsons - World of Springfield toys and playsets. I was lucky to win an Ebay lot of figures for a good price. I set them all up for a photo which I converted to a puzzle. Haven't made any puzzles from my dioramas in a long time.

I order the puzzles through
