@GanaSoth
Link for both issues. You can also order just one, your choice, for $10 each. But the pair goes for $15, so I went that way myself.

You know, I've been doing some thinking on this, I've wondered why this is so cool for me. I think I figured it out.

Before "The Lost Boys", comic book collecting was never a part of a movie or tv plot. Two characters come to my mind that MIGHT have collected comics are Ralph from "Happy Days" and Horseshack from "Welcome Back Kotter". But it was not stressed for either one. In "Revenge of the Nerds", Booger MAY have been a comic book collector, but again, no major plot role. "The Simpsons" wouldn't come out for another two years in 1989.

There was nothing like "Big Bang Theory" or "Comic Book Men" back then. Collecting comic book basically had the same rule as "Fight Club" ... "You don't talk about comic book collecting!!"

I just remember how awesome it felt to see a comic book store and main characters talking about comic books on the movie screen!!! It was kind of a "coming of age" moment. I really think the hobby owes a lot to "The Lost Boys" for helping to make the hobby more public and mainstream. Maybe I'm overemphasizing the importance of the movie, but I really feel it is not given any credit for doing what it did. It gave a ton of comic book collectors some legitimacy. It felt good to see fellow collectors portrayed in positive roles as major characters in a large movie production.

They were made by the same guy who laid out and designed many of the IDW Artist Edition hardcovers.

I picked up one of these fun little rare items (#8) by pure chance, and it's one of the centerpieces of my comic shelf and almost impossible to find. It's signed by Schultz and individually numbered #8 of 10.
Is the set sealed or are you able to show what the dinosaur figures look like? I would be fascinated to see them myself....if they are styled after the marx sets of the 60s...marx was barely hanging on in the seventies and many of the playsets were done by MPC as the change occurred.


Pics I found online to give you an idea of box contents, per request.

So, I’m a huge fan of the movie ‘Tremors’ from 1990 starring Kevin Bacon & Fred Ward.

Every once in a while, I browse e-bay for props from this series, as well as a couple others.

They had a mini series reboot planned with Ward & Bacon returning in the lead. Unfortunately, it was canceled after the pilot wasn’t given the green light.

After some negotiation, I was able to grab two action figures made for the production.

Number 6 looks very familiar. I'm watching WWE Extreme Rules PPV right now, but I'll delve deeper into it later and see what I can find.

It says 86 on it. I think you are a decade off on the year. Neat piece. Frank Brunner does HTD sketches, but that doesn't look like his signature. Could it be Destroyer Duck?

You're right- Somehow it time traveled a decade since the last time I searched, but that explains why I wasn't seeing results I saw last time when searching up to '86.

Now I gotta start over

A very late anniversary gift from the wife! This artist was at Comic Con Revolution in Chicago. I thought this was funny. I guess she remembered and tracked the guy down to get this. It was a nice surprise

So...Clara Scroggins is (was?) the owner of the largest Christmas ornament (and Hallmark specific) collection in the world. She lives not far from me and they were selling off her collection last fall (she's in the hospital and needs money for medical treatments...I heard, I haven't met her). My wife and I like Hallmark ornaments so we went to the sale over 3 of the weekends (missed the first weekend). In addition to the regular ornaments, she actually worked as a designer and checked artist proofs so had a lot of one-of-a-kind ornaments and a huge collection of signed ornaments. I picked this up at the sale, I was actually less than $25 (Don't remember why...I did NOT ask for a discount I knew the money was going towards someone's medical treatment, I think it was the number of ornaments we bought). Got home and we started looking up some of the stuff we bought for between $1.00 and $5.00 and have several that sell on ebay for 60-80. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clara_Johnson_Scroggins
