A Kickstarter for Some Amazing Art!

The title says it all! Mark Watts has put together a Kickstarter for some Amazing art, with some Amazing discounts! G1 fans will remember Mark’s art from the original box art and collector’s sheets that came with those toys! You would have also seen Mark’s art on school supplies during the 80s too! A Must See Kickstarter: Table-Art Wall Art!

In 1995, I picked up my first boxed Shockwave… I was a huge fan of the art, and was thrilled to have this boxed Decepticon as part of my collection! Back then though, I never thought I’d meet the original artist behind that art. I can say I have now, and it’s both an honor and a thrill, to spotlight this talented man and his product!

Tony’s a huge fan of Huffer, so he had to be near the top too!

Monkey’s Emporium, London’s Number One Fun Shop!

Arriving in London, I did lots of research for that perfect store that would have retro goodies and collectibles! I found such a place at the Monkey’s Emporium in the Camden market palace! The owner was so sweet, and closed the store twice just so we could take pictures and make videos from London! He was also excited about Retro Con, yes even over in London, we talk about our amazing convention! [My friends Rhonna and Meg joined us in the fun, and in the Tardis, part of the appeal while shopping in this amazing store!]

Today’s achievements include a Transformers 35th anniversary project I’m working on! Doing a workout while watching ‘Roll For It’… Yes, I’m just getting back to those workouts, wish me luck! And I grabbed some cool screen captures from that amazing episode while working on that 35th-anniversary project!

What was your favorite quote from the episode ‘Roll For It’?

On a side note, before I go to work on my guitar… I recently picked up this cool Transformers Slumber Bag, while at a toy show last weekend! It’s mint in bag, never been opened, and I paid 20.00 dollars for it!

And it’s funny because, in the 1985 Sears Wishbook, it was priced at 22.99! So I got a discount!
