Cool Stuff!

Let's see what photos I have to share with you this time... although first a reminder, these aren't things I actually own myself (unless I say otherwise)... so if you see something cool you've got to have, I'd recommend searching on eBay (where I first found these)!

Random Acts of Geekery Video Blog #1!

First time out for doing one of these, and yeah, it's a bit long, but I should get more succinct the more of these I do! And now it's been fixed so it's not reversed!

By the 10's: Rocky Lane Western!

Can you believe I've been doing this blog for 5 years now?

Yes, that's right, today marks the five-year anniversary of The Random Acts of Geekery! Don't have anything in particular scheduled to celebrate it... but I would like to thank all of you who read this blog, whether it's daily, every couple of days, or whenever you've got an extra couple of hours to kill! It doesn't matter if you're a new reader, or one of those few who've been here from the very beginning, I appreciate you all!

Cool South American DC & Marvel Toys!

A very good friend of the Random Acts of Geekery, Ramiro from Argentina, has been sending me photos of some very cool superhero toys available in his part of the world since October, and I figured it was high time I show some of them off to you guys!

batmobile_argentina
First up is this Batmobile with Batman and Robin, as well as a Batcycle with Batgirl! Kind of makes me wonder why AHI never got around to doing a Batgirl Batcycle!

msh_ff_mrfantasticstickerargentina
These Fantastic Four-related stickers look to be part of a larger set, and I hope Ramiro will send me more of the rest of these!

Batcycle with capeless Batman!

Batboat by Gulliver (I believe Gulliver made all the Batman toys here)

msh_ff_pepsicapsargentina
These bottle caps were available on Pepsi bottles down in South America!

Here's a poster checklist (or maybe two different posters for two releases) for all the Marvel ones! I'd love to see all these bottle caps!

dcsh_pepsicaps_argentina

A couple of posters for the DC caps, which makes it obvious that they were intended to be used as checkers!

And lastly, but nowhere near least, here's a Batmobile that Gulliver made that included Wonder Woman and Batgirl instead of Batman and Robin (along with another Batgirl Batcycle)! It appears to me that the figures were designed for riding motorcycles, which means there should be a Wonder Woman motorcycle out there!

Many thanks to Ramiro for sending me these photos! I hope he'll send me even more, and I'll try to make sure I post them much sooner!

By the 10's: Red Ryder Comics!

If the cover is to be believed, it appears that Red Ryder Comics was another anthology title that reprinted newspaper comic strips -- at least at the beginning!

Issue 10!

Monster Monday!

Ordinarily, I'm not a big fan of two-color poster designs... but I have to admit that this poster for "Frankenstein Created Woman" is extremely well-done!
