Well, my computer is out of commission for the moment, so I’m posting this on the Clarkinator’s computer.  Recently, I got a bookshelf to display my loose toys in my bedroom.  The funny thing is, is that it was my wife’s idea.  Now, there are mostly MIB figures and such in “The Vault”.  Without further adieu, toys.

There’s the beast in all it’s glory!

Here’s a shelf by shelf breakdown

On top, we have my boxed N64, boxed Starfox 64 as well as a few random pieces.  You should know what the other stuff is(if you don’t, just ask).  If you look closely you’ll notice Superchicken!

The first shelf is the Transformers/robots shelf.  A mix of Transformers, Rock Lords, Battle Beasts, Voltron and Rokkon from MOTU.

Going down one shelf, we have the TMNT shelf.  This shelf is exclusively dedicated to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, except for the picture of Penny, remembered from Pee-Wee’s Playhouse.  The picture of Penny is actually cut out from the box of the talking Pee Wee I traded to my brother a couple years ago.

The third shelf is for my wife and I’s wedding memorabilia.

The third shelf of toys is a mix up of lots of great lines.

Here you will see Marvel super heroes from different lines, M.U.S.C.L.E. men, Thunder Cats, Ghostbusters, G.I. Joe and many other toy lines.  See how many different ones you can name.

The bottom shelf is stuff that I couldn’t fit on other shelves, or just didn’t belong on them.  I know this is blurry, so, below are a few shots from different angles(of all the shelves).

Well, there you have it.  My new toy display.  That’s not all the toys I own, but it is a nice chunk of them.  Others are stored away, the ones still in their package are still in “The Vault” and I’m certain that I’m not done with the collection yet(far from it).  So, what do you guys think?  Was it worth the wait?  Please share your thought in the comments.  You can even comment on what your favorite piece is.  And later in the day these pictures were taken, I acquired a big ALF plush from The Clakinator, in exchange for an E.T. that I had.  He is now seated on the shelf on the right side of the N64.  Pictures of him will surface at another time.

The arrival of Superchicken

So, I got a package in the mail about a week ago.  I was eagerly anticipating this package.  You see, the contents of this package could change your life.

The story goes like this.

While surfing the web about a month ago, I stumbled across a great blog.  Now, I’ll sample a few posts before I’ll decide whether or not it’s for me.  The blog I came across was zenestex.com.  Mr. Bobby Cooper is the proprietor of this site.  Anyway, after I started reading through his entries, I found out he was a prankster.  If you want to check out his escapades, go there now.  Two of his particular pranks included putting a Superchicken antenna topper on an unsuspecting coworkers car.  Long story short, I thought that Superchicken was the greatest thing ever.  Bobby said that he got a bunch of them from Whataburger, I think, for free.  I left a comment stating my new found love for this Superchicken.  I received an e-mail from Mr. Cooper asking for an address to ship a left over one he had in his closet.  Just look at him in all his glory!

There’s not too much info on this character.  He’s a mascot for the Whataburger chain.  That’s all I got.  Seriously.  Anyway, I think this Superchicken is one of the greatest thing for, at least, the rest of this summer.  Check out some of this guy in action over at zenestex.com.
