I went to the flea market and got a batch of WWF LJN and Hasbro figures I needed for my collection, plus an old WrestleMania III Hogan vs. Andre lunchbox in great condition.

I've got a little more than half of the LJN line, now. As usual they need a lot of fixing up but that's half the fun for me of collecting these guys.

It's my birthday today, and a Zelda & Loftwing amiibo got announced to go with the release of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD for the Switch.

Happy belated b-day.


Happy makers... it's finally warmer out (albeit we jumped from 60s to upper 80s -- what is spring?) and I came across ONE box of Acme's store brand version of the Drumsticks ice cream cones with the peanut butter. My Walmart, where I've usually gotten them, is failing again to stock them, like last year... not even in the name brand, and the peanut butter ones are never there when fully stocked. Guess we eat this one box slowly.

Yesterday was my Anniversary; my wife and I have been together for 21 years.

We celebrated in our preferred fashion, with a huge meal at Red Lobster:


My wife asked me not to share the picture of her because she doesn't like the face she ended up making. Blah.

I also got a few things I ordered in the mail, so overall the day couldn't have gone any better.

Thanks.

The preorder for the amiibo went up at Best Buy's site, and I was quick enough to snag one. So that's one good thing that happened to me today.

Today was a good day.

Made some pretty intense coin swaps to leverage this crypto dump that managed the current ETH/BTC relationship extremely well. Really happy with the results.

Also got a metric f-ton of stuff in the mail today that rounded out my Bandai Thundercats 2011 Collection.

Had a few nice, small store sales - our action figure bags are top notch and super high quality, btw. They sell like crazy.

And spent the evening in Rosemont, IL at a High School graduation of the "bosses" daughter. The ceremony was very well done, we were all very proud.

It was a solid day.

That one hurt, unlike the first, and the same sore, stiff arm is coming back so that's going to be great fun trying to sleep... but glad the second vaccine dose is finally behind me. If the same soreness (really sore) is all I get again, I can deal.

Oh wow, I hope that's a great transfer. I'll absolutely be picking that one up. I got jazzed about Transformers this year for the first time in decades because of the "cinema series" Rodimus, Kupp etc that were released.

The Blu-ray that was released back in 2016 was actually a 4K transfer. They did that for the 30th anniversary of the movie. This year is the 35th. So they're putting out an actual 4K release to commemorate the 35th anniversary. Start around 8:15 in this video for the information.

Awesome... I'd like to think that 4k will do everything that is possible for the animation and that this is the last copy you'd ever need to buy until we have Star Trek holodecks or something....

Unless physical media in 8K becomes a thing.

I'm actually looking forward to Monday, and seeing just when it comes out.

YYYEeaaahhhh, but even then man, I mean I don't know that 8k can do anything further for the animation media in particular. You know? it's animation - after 4k what else could be on the cel to be scanned for 8k? Not much more....


Now 35 mm film of real life? Yeah.....

Dollar Tree had the "Aughra's Wisdom of Thra" book (tie-in to the Netflix series) and couldn't resist grabbing one.

Is about 6.25" square and kind of styled like one of those gift type books with the inspirational-ish quotes, though given the source they're more "make of it what you will" quotes. Really nice art so a pretty cool find.




They also had this possible gem that seems to have great Amazon reviews. And for a $1 at Dollar Tree.

A rather thick little hardback for mid-level readers, so looks like a fun little easy read that I can enjoy and then pass (or give borrowing privileges) on to my nephew when he's older, if we can get him to be much of a reader.

Reminds me of one of those kid novels that people eventually make movies out of... and looks like there are at least a couple more I may need to watch for.

Ooh that Aughra book looks interesting! Might have to hunt it down. Already have the movie sequel comic trilogy books in my queue on Amazon. I really love all the worldbuilding Jim and co did for the movie, and now the Netflix series.
