Monsterfestmania Is This Weekend!

The first annual Monsterfestmania Science-Fiction and Horror Show is this weekend in Akron, Ohio. It's put on by the same people that run the Akron Comicon, so I think it should be a pretty good show. I'll be there Saturday getting autographs, buying stuff and taking plenty of pictures. See you there!

Funko Monday!

I guess this is becoming a thing. I didn't post this Sunday night because I downloaded Pokemon Go. Just what I need. Something else to distract me from the real world! :)

I went to The Exchange Saturday and picked these up. Luke Skywalker (The Force Awakens) Pop! and Glow-In-The-Dark Cthulhu Mystery Mini.

Celebrating The Bicentennial At Walt Disney World

Walt Disney World and Disneyland both celebrated the USA's bicentennial from June 1975 to September 1976. In July of 1975 my family went on vacation to Orlando, FL. Me, my brother, dad, mom and grandma all piled in the station wagon on a two day drive from Ohio to Florida. We stayed in a rented condo and spent a lot of time in the swimming pool, ocean and fishing. We also visited Walt Disney World, Cypress Gardens, and Stars Hall of Fame Wax Museum. Today I'm sharing my photos from Disney World.

Ben Franklin picked my brother and me out of the audience to come up on stage with him. He gave a speech and then handed us both a copy of the Declaration of Independence and a metal.

My brother and me photobombed by grandma. :)

Alligator Swamp

The Pirates of the Caribbean

Jungle Cruise

Log cabin with a canon.

The Magic Kingdom

My brother and me on Main Street.

The Admiral Jim Fowler Steamboat

We probably had this guide back then, Wish I still did. 

I do still have this copy of the Declaration of Independence. I still have the medal somewhere.

I also have this Indian vest and necklace.

And still have the gun and tomahawk from my trip to Disney World 41 years ago!

Firecracker Labels

Happy Independence Day to everyone in the USA!

What's more American than blowing your fingers off with small explosives! :)

I found these firecracker labels posted in the Facebook group Vintage Monster Toys.
I thought they were really neat. Thank you to the original posters in that group.

Funko Monday?

Since I don't have to work Monday morning because of the holiday, I'm up late on Sunday night. As I post this, it is almost 12:30 in the morning, so HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!!!

I stopped at Hot Topic on Thursday and picked up the new Doctor Strange Pop! and the HT exclusive Poe Dameron Pop! Party City had one Avengers: Age of Ultron Mystery Mini, so I had to buy it. lol I got Captain America just in time for Independence Day.

The Marx Toy Museum Has Closed

The Marx Toy Museum in Moundsville, WV closed it's doors for good today (June 30). I only got to visit it once a little over five years ago on June 22, 2011. I was hoping to make it there one last time before they closed, but that never happened. Here's the pictures I took while I was there. It's mostly pictures of toys I owned as a child or wish I did. Sadly, I'm not in any of these photos, but my wife's in one! :)
