When I was a kid my mom asked me if I hoped the Easter Bunny brought something special in my Easter Basket. I said, "Dear Easter Bunny, Please bring me a Wampa figure!" Well a week later, there was a Wampa figure in my basket, which proves the Easter Bunny exists. Don't believe me? Well you can ask my mom, because she was there and witnessed the whole thing go down!
Gentle Giant has upped the awesome with their jumbo Star Wars figure line... the Jumbo line is where they take an original Star Wars figure and enlarge it to 12" tall.... They've now made a JUMBO WAMPA, which stands 22" tall and goes for 400-fucking-dollars. The bottom pic shows the Jumbo Wampa standing behind the original Wampa figure and a Jumbo Yoda.
I'm going to ask the Easter Bunny for one this year, but he'll probably ignore me and instead bring stuff for my amazing, adorable kids. Never have children.

My buddy GLAZY sent me this copy of the Aliens Novelization! It has a different cover & spine text than the ones in 'INSANE MISSION', however I now have 6 copies of this version! This will go in my Insane Mission Special Section, where my hardcover editions and foreign language editions reside. Thank you, Glazy!!!!!
And check out the sweet sketch he put on the envelope (which I am keeping)!

AQUAMAN #29 was originally solicited as "Aquaman vs Atlas" with the above cover art.
But when the issue came out, it was this...
...Aquaman vs Hercules.
I would have preferred Atlas (which would have made the cover that much cooler). I've never found Hercules that interesting, and he's used often... whereas when was the last time you saw Atlas in a mainstream comic?
Is anyone else already sick of all the "HAIL HYDRA" memes? I just don't think they're that funny,. Slighty amusing, perhaps. But the movies only been out 2 weeks and I feel like I've seen a 100 of these memes already. No more, I say.
With that said, here's a "HAIL HYDRA" meme:

While visiting my parents, I went exploring in their attic.
Here are some gems I found:
Mego Spock wearing Mego Spider-Man costume
My old 'ALIEN' and 'ALIENS' movie posters from junior high days.
Poster of HR Giger's "Necronom IV"
(the painting that led to the ALIEN movie design)
A couple old Wonder Woman comics.
I vaguely remember buying these when I was 3 yrs old!
Some old Toys; Transformers, He-Man, Thundercats, and more!
(There's another box somewhere with all the others I used to own)
Old Masters of the Universe Magazine.
More pics of from the Attic next week!
