Polar Bear for Snowbird


I used my 50% off coupon at Michael's today for a Mego-sized polar bear. It'll go perfectly with my planned Snowbird (Narya) figure.

Frenchie Under Construction


Now, I couldn't go ahead and make a Mego Moon Copter without a Frenchie figure to pilot it. I'm just waiting on the arrival of his pilot's cap and he'll be all set.

Mork's Outfit


Some of my fellow geeks out there may already be aware of this, but here's something interesting I discovered while working on my Orkan Pilot figure.
I always liked Mork's Orkan outfit. I always felt that both the uniform and helmet have a classic Sci-Fi feel. Well, as it turns out, they don't just feel classic, they are classic. The uniform is re-purposed from "Star Trek". It was originally worn by Colonel Green in "The Savage Curtain". And Mork's helmet was originally worn by Michael Ansara as the title character of "The Outer Limits" episode entitled "Soldier".  That's one of my top three favorite "Outer Limits" episodes. No wonder I liked the Orkan outfit.
