Spend much time on BEM and it becomes pretty obvious I have an Alien fixation. This was a really good year at SDCC for both the Ridley Scott Alien and the James Cameron Aliens incarnations. Not shown is a Super7 prototype for a Kenner style Alien based on the Cameron movie.

Adam West era Batman is still my favorite. There was a lot of great stuff to see for the Batman 66 fan. Here are some photos of my favorites.

SDCC15 is nearly upon us! So I am posting some photos of a Mattel exhibit from a few cons ago that was all Battlestar Galactica – and all vintage. Check out the Viper launcher in the lower left corner of the group shot!

I’ve always loved the work of Ray Harryhausen. The skeleton sword fight in Jason and the Argonauts had me rivited, but the first Harryhausen film I ever saw, and my favorite one, was the last one he made, Clash of the Titans. And the best monster in a film with so many great ones was the Kraken.
Clash of the Titans toys are insanely expensive, and none more so than the appropriately monstrously large Kraken toy. I think it is arguably one of the best monster toys ever made. I don’t have a good photo of the toy, but a friend of provides these pictures a sealed box – which he bought for $750.

Sticking with a food theme, a Starkist Charlie the Tuna phone. The 70’s had such awesome food mascots.
