For our 53rd show, we are joined once again by former Famous Monsters editor and current host of "It Came From Blog" Mr David Weiner (@TikiAmbassador) for a rousing two hour discussion on Walt Disney's 1979 Science Fiction opus "The Black Hole".
The conversation talks about the film itself, the it's origins and somewhat discordant tone, the interesting cast, what the ending might mean, the multitude of merchandise, it's trailer, the comic book sequels and of course, the attempted remake.
We also touch on subjects like Star Wars, Shreddies cereal (blech), Salvage One, Starlog magazine and Buck Rogers. It's jam packed with late seventies science fiction goodness.
Plenty more content on the PodStallions Facebook page!

As someone who was cast out of his one and only D&D game for being too "Disruptive" (my local DM was kind of a tyrant) , I missed out on the whole TSR scene in the day. It was very similar to being the only kid who hadn't seen "Star Wars".
I mainly stuck to playing "Gauntlet" for my fantasy fix.

When it comes to Planet of the Apes merchandise, I honestly find myself drawn to stuff like this than anything else. Something about it just feels so....right.

If I had a screen that readout my rage levels, it would include Driving, Paying Taxes, Home Depot on a Saturday, Waiting in long check out lines and then of course, Hulk Raging.

For the last two decades I've been quietly collecting these promotional cups given away by Pepsi in the 1970s in Canada. Similar to the US cup promotions but a much smaller character choice, different design and made in Canada. (update I've just been told they were made available at the restaurants in Zeller's department stores)
My mantra on these was to never buy them online but find them in the wild at the many toy shows, antique malls and flea markets I regularly haunt. I think I've put together a complete set and thought it would be fun to showcase them. More after the jump.

Being a toy collector, I am very drawn to "Catalog Exclusive" items even if i don't actually collect the line.
This Ward's exclusive set for Kenner's Steve Scout is new to me, anybody have one in the box? I'd be curious to see it.
