Toy line I missed: Disney Tronics GVE

These are Disney Tronics GVE .Looks like they are robot versions of a few of Disney's characters and for the most part look pretty cool. I'm not really sure when these came out or what stores carried them but I would guess that they may have came from the Disney store 6 or more years ago (dont hold me to that tho).
Description from the back of the pack:
ONE NIGHT, AFTER VIEWING HIS COLLECTION OF CLASSIC DISNEY FILMS, THE MAD SCIENTIST, DR. FRANKENOLLIE CONCEIVED HIS GREATEST CREATION YET. HE WAS INTRIGUED BY THE CLASH OF THE VALOR IN THE DISNEY HEROES CONTRASTED AGAINST THE INFAMY OF THE DISNEY VILLAINS... GOOD VERSUS EVIL.
 INSPIRED BY HIS FAVORITE DISNEY ADVENTURES, HE CREATED A PAIR OF ROBOTS, ONE FEARLESSLY HEROIC AND ONE WICKEDLY VILLAINOUS. HE ENJOYED THE ENSUING BATTLE SO MUCH, HE HAD TO CREATE MORE. 
NOW YOU, TOO, CAN COLLECT YOUR OWN ROBOTIC WARRIORS- DISNEY TRONICS, GVE. LET THE BATTLES BEGIN!

If you have these or have more information then me ( not hard seeing I have little to no info on them) feel free to fill me in.

Summer vacation tv watching before cable

My family didn't get cable TV until 1987 .Before we had cable my summer  vacation days were spent mainly watching pbs because the other channels we had for the most part showed soap operas during the day. Here are a few of the shows I enjoyed in my precable childhood

Vegetable Soup. This show had some very crazy animation in it  but I cant seem to find a video of it.

Visitors from The Cosmic Ark!

A huge thanks to jboypacman over at Revenge From The Cosmic Ark  for sending over this frightfully awesome selection of items for the Midnight collection. I cant express my appreciation enough for this little surprise! My son immediately took possession of the Lego / mega block type figures and The Hawkeyes ,he thought he was going to be sly and sneak off with the minimates Creature but nipped that idea in the bud.


I will do my best to give these guys a good home and make sure they are well taken care of.
Oh look,It seems that Son of Dracula is already making himself at home!


You better be careful  Son of Dracula because I think that in some round about way Draculaura might be your sister.

A few dark secrets that could get me banished from the geek kingdom

We all have our dark secrets and these are a few of mine.

1.Im not a huge fan of  Star Wars and dont collect anything related to it.
Sure I played with the toys as a kid  but I also played with sticks , milk jug lids, and empty Velveeta cheese boxes . I dont feel the need to collect any of that stuff or Star Wars stuff.

2. The last time I read a current issue of a comic book was over a decade ago in August of 2001.It was this book
JSA 25. The last marvel comic I read ( excluding the marvel zombies and The dark Tower graphic novels ) was 2 decades ago and it was this
Spider Man 16 November 1991.I completely lost all interest in Marvel comics when I discovered some of the darker DC books that would later become part of the Vertigo imprint.

3.I do not like the Godfather movies ...at all.
 I cant even make it half way into  the first one before Im ready to change the channel.

 4.I do not like most of the new nostalgia driven Hollywood rehash movies.I did not like Transformers, GI Joe ,or The Christopher Nolan BatMans.
 Gritty is not always better And would it really have been that hard to make realistic cg Transformers that still kept the original deigns of the characters?

5. I have never played Xbox , Xbox 360 ,PS3, and have only briefly once played  the Wii

.Im a Gamecube and Dreamcast guy and pretty much anything before them. I still play  Jet Grind Radio all the time.
Well thats it...Please dont egg my house now.
