Mecha-Santo to the rescue?! #lilkaiju at 13 pieces, giving him some short legs, but plenty of dangerous with an arm-sword and nozzle-o-doom! He had better hurry, it looks like rain… don’t want to rust that noggin.
This blue-faced goon is sitting on the sidelines, waiting mostly patiently for their turn to hit on day three of #glyosbuildchallenge . #bigkaiju is here to make ol’ scotto continue to build in the hands on world of PVC and resin rather than purely digital output.
When they think nobody is looking, they kick and dangle feet over the edge and sing a happy, yet tuneless little tune that sounds a little bit like surf punk, a little like doo wop.
These have been sitting on my personal youtube account for ten years, and although they have gotten A LOT of views, and probably many of you have seen them, I felt it was finally time to put them on the channel with everything else. With Armelia’s passing, I kept thinking of some of the adorable clips in here that show what a pleasure she must have been to be around. Also, everyone else is so gosh-darn adorable! Of course, I must warn you about the swearing and adult humor: definitely do not watch if it would ruin your childhood. lol Me personally, I find this to be one of the greatest things in existence. There are a few instances of footage jumping, and I apologize for that — something happened while it was being converted from VHS. Anyway, hope everyone is well, and I hope this cheers everyone up a little too.

figured out why I dont like the look of the new netfilix sandman. Morpheus has irises and whites instead of the comics all-black eyes with stars.
Given that the endless look like whatever, depending on the viewer, not a real problem, but just doesn’t seem alien / weird enough. I still will be interested in seeing how it plays out. https://instagr.am/p/CgxEVQCO6g-/

Wallace Wood, unarguably one of the world’s greatest ever comic book artists, used to have two lists pinned to the notice board in his home studio. One was titled “Friends of Odkin” – all the names on this list had paid ten-or-so dollars to join Wood’s self-managed fan club and would receive from him a membership card, certificate, subscription to the gazette and an autographed original ink drawing of one of Wood’s characters. The other list was titled “Wallace Wood’s Official Shit List” – all the names on this list had fallen out with Wood in some way, and would receive from him nothing but lifelong hatred.
Whereas the Friends of Odkin list was sloppily handwritten, Wood’s Official Shit List was so important that he had it typed up and properly formatted, with a large blank space at its bottom for late additions. It was constantly updated depending on who fell in and out of his favour, and because the old lists were discarded there is no historical record of which of Wood’s contemporaries were on them. Even Rick Stoner, who visited Wood’s home in Derby, Connecticut, on the 14th and 15th of April 1978 then went with him to Niagara Falls on the 16th, would give no clues. “I won’t name any names from this list of about twenty or so,” he wrote in his article Remembering Wally Wood, printed in issue 11 of The Journal of Madness in June 2001, “I’m just glad I wasn’t on that one”.
Thankfully for us, Stoner took plenty of photographs of Wood’s home on Saturday the 15th April 1978, some of which were reprinted in that same issue of The Journal of Madness, and one of them features a very clear shot of Wood’s Official Shit List. Twenty-one names of important and well-respected members of the comics industry, all united by the fact that they’ve irritated Wallace Wood. This version of the list follows, to which I’ve added a brief biographical description of each person and, where known, their association with Wood. Note that the last two names have been handwritten in; obviously they’d pissed Wood off after the list’s printing deadline.
Diet Grape Soda-bot is stunned by all the astounding kaiju that have already appeared for the 2022 Glyos build challenge! He is going to head back into the bay and see who or what can be rallied to the neat, charitable cause!

LEGO Atari 2600 has an incredible, unexpected Easter Egg for fans of the ‘90s.
This is unorthodox, as Atari as a company famously peaked in the early ‘80s. LEGO 10306 Atari 2600 does for the famous wood-panelled console what 71374 does for the Nintendo Entertainment System: a chunky, brick-built loveletter to a famous games console from decades past.
This set comes with not only an Atari Joystick but also several game cartridges, and little dioramas representing three of Atari’s most famous games: Asteroids, Centipede, and Adventure.
Plus, flip up the top of the console, and here’s another diorama: a 1980s living room, complete with tiny period-appropriate posters…
Wait. What’s that?
Johnny Thunder, what are you doing here?!
The main character of the LEGO Adventurers theme, Johnny Thunder debuted in 1998, making him waaay too young to belong in this 1980s nostalgia scene.
Except, of course, we all know why he’s here. Johnny Thunder is and always has been heavily inspired by Indiana Jones, so he’s clearly included in this set to fill in for a Raiders of the Lost Ark poster.
