The IseeRobots Show Ep.11: The Top 5 Trick Or Treat Candies Of All The Times




Hey kids. We have a real humdinger of a show this week! We're doing two of the things you guys seem to like me to talk about the most in the same feature! We're gonna talk food, AND do a Top 5! Plus, it's Halloween Related.. The Top 5 Halloween Candies Of All The Times! It's gonna be great.

Before we get there though we have to pass through some somber space and confront the passing of Robert Forrester. I was lucky enough to meet Mr. Forrester once and I really wanted to share that story with you guys. He was a nice dude.

For At The Movies we're gonna take a peek at a horror comedy called Zombieland: Double Tap. It's a sequel to a movie that came out ten years ago.. I don't know. We'll talk about it in a spoiler free way.

Then it's on to the Main Event.. The Top 5 Trick Or Treat Candies Of All The Times. This is a pretty fun one. Basically the idea is, when I was sorting out my post Trick Or Treat winnings what were the candies that I gave the highest priority to...? Which ones did I either eat first or save for last? It's a ton of fun.

For the final segment of the show we talk the recent blackout, Megos, Halloween decorations and a bunch of other cool topics.

Thanks for tuning in. Have a happy/spooky Halloween and make sure to tell a friend...

More Spooky Halloween Stickers


Hey kids. It's me and I'm back to share some more fun Halloween Stickers from my small but interesting collection of Spooktober stuff.. I picked these guys up in a big sticker book score from The Flea Market.

In total I got up on 4 books from some kid named Brian's 80's Sticker Collection. There was a ton of great stuff in there. Star Wars Stickers, Scratch and Sniff stuff and a bunch of other great stuff. It was one of my all time fave pick-ups. I don't seem to think that I paid that much either when I expected to pay a fortune. Sometimes people don't value stuff as much as you do.  One man's junk and all that. 

Anyhow in the books there were a few sets of holiday related stuff. Holidays are big sticker days. I remember getting all sorts on Christmas and Halloween, even some Thanksgiving type stickers from teachers around each time of the year.. .

I like those guys up there a lot. The one's that this post is about... My fave is probably Dracula. He looks so tired and crazed.. I do kind of like Wolfman's sort of sly facial expression too. He just can't be bothered with all this Halloween stuff. He's over it.

The POS Blackout Special 2019. 2 Days In The Dark.




Hey kids! As some of you may know Sonoma County where I live was recently struck with a mandatory blackout due to high winds and such. The fear was that the wind would knock over power poles and start another fire like back a couple years ago.

It was pretty wild. We were without power for days.. During that time I set up a makeshift studio using my mini-recorder and a boombox. My thought was to record a POS or Patreon Only Show but as time went on and I started working on it I began to see that it might be an interesting story for everyone..

I talk about what I did during that time, how we made it through without electricity. What we did for fun how we kept the food fresh all sorts of stuff. It's an overall pretty interesting episode and somewhat newsworthy..

I hope you all enjoy hearing my tales and if you are interested in hearing more stuff like this there are like 10 other POS episodes over on Patreon.. Check it out over at SupportTheReport.com

The IseeRobots Show Ep.10: From Ace To Zartan 1984 GI Joe Action Figures Plus The Joker!



This week on The ISR Show we have a super awesome episode ahead of us! We start off with a convo between me and Iceberg. We're in the Jupiter Base Snack Shack and talk about Emily, Aliens and all sorts of stuff... It's fun.

Then we move onto At The Movies where we're gonna take a spoiler-free peak into The Joker.. DC's latest Comic Book Movie. I enjoyed it and have some thoughts on it and what it means to DC and the world at large..

For the Main Event of the show we're gonna revisit one of my favorite topics of all the times and space.. From Ace To Zartan! This time around we're gonna take a look at all of the GI Joe Real American Hero Figures from 1984. This includes dudes like Zartan, Duke, The Baroness and many others. It's a fun and info packed segment..

We kind of cut the final segment short because From Ace To Zartan went so long.. There is some toy talk and mention of a helmet I got for a Mego of mine.. It's a good time..

Make sure to tell a friend! We need your support to grow the pod into the world wide phenomenon it can be.. lol..

Soft And Puffy 3 Dimensions Halloween Stickers!



I have a small but fun collection of vintage Halloween stuff that I want to share with you kids over the next couple of weeks.. It's not as big a collection as some dudes or as cool as some folk's but I do enjoy the most spooktacular time of the year and when I come across something scary and dope I always make a go at adding it to my stuff. 

I picked up these stickers at the Vet's Building flea market from a good junker buddy of mine named Allen. He's a great guy who always breaks me off great deals. 

I think that he sold me three packs of these beauties for 3 dollars. A dollar a sheet! How great is that? let me tell you it's totally great!. Vintage Halloween stuff is always in demands and I've seen stickers similar to this sell for tens of dollars online.



I've since traded away two of the sheets to other Halloween fiends that I know and love. As I recall I got a copy of Buck Owens in Japan and The Buck Owens Carnegie Hall show on Vinyl for one and a small box of 80's Rap Cassettes for the other.. It was a great box, there was a De La Soul, A Run-DMC AND A Force MD's tape in there.. I do not regret either swap! 

I made sure to hold onto one sheet though.. Once I owned these I couldn't imagine life without them.. lol..

My favorite one is The Red Devil. He's just so fiendish but I like all the rest of them too. The Witch stirring the cauldron is particularly great.. It looks like the fumes are doing a number on her sobriety. I also like how happy that ghost looks on the lower left hand corner. He must have really hated being alive.. 

Forgive the weird glare on the pic. The stickers are still in their wrapping and it sort of did a number on the scan..

Hope you all enjoyed looking at these as much as I enjoyed sharing them! Happy Halloween!

The IseeRobots Show Ep.9: Warriors Come Out And Play At The South City Comic-Con




Hey kids! This week on the show we have a ton of fun stuff ahead of us. We start off with a scary encounter with The Corinthian Army. We were lucky to get away with our lives! Luckily Emily is an awesome pilot and we got some much needed air support!

From there we head to At The Movies where we take a look at Brad Pitt's space epic Ad Astra.. I liked it a lot and I'll tell you all about it without getting into spoilers.

Then for the main event of the show we're gonna revist a comic show I went to this past week. It's was amazing! There were a ton of great comics AND I got to sit in on a panel with a bunch of actors from Walter Hill's cult classic film.. The Warriors! It was so informative and so fun!

For the final segment of the show I'm gonna talk about some action figures I got at The Disney Store as well as a weird dream I had.. It's pretty fun!...

Thanks for tuning in and make sure to tell a friend!

Video Store Pics: Peninsula Video VHS Rental Case


Hey kids. As you all know I'm a huge Video Store Aficionado. I long for the days when there was a store on every corner and a fun friday was spent walking the aisles looking at the boxes while trying to find the perfect movie to watch. That was my ideal weekend. Sure, you can watch Netflix or get a movie on Vudu or whatever but it's not the same.. 

Anyhow, I was at The Dig the other day and I came across something that really captures the feeling of those long gone days.. A neat rental box from a store called Peninsula Video in Burlingame California. 

What makes it really great is that they taped a flyer for the store across the front of the brown plastic case. Let's take a closer look at the flyer. It's really great.


How neat is that? There are a ton of neat little details we can glean from it. It looks like they have some sort of sliding scale for late fees depending on what sort of title you rented. The cost for this particular tape was 1.50 which was the second lowest possible rate. I imagine that this was a generic stock title and that the dollar rate was for children's movies. They tended to be the lowest.. 

Besides VHS Tapes they also rent Nintendo Games, Sega Genesis stuff as well as Gameboy games. I believe that the Gameboy was released in 1989 so that places this flyer at some point past that date. 

As far as I recall none of the video stores in my area rented Gameboy games. I don't know why not but as far as I recall they didn't. Those folks in Burlingame were lucky in that regard I guess... 

The shop also repairs VCRs, that's pretty cool and they had a self-serve Xerox service. That means that they had a Xerox machine in the corner and that you could run off some copies if you want.. I wonder how popular that was? 

They also sell new electronic items. I wonder what sort? VCRs probably. I don't know. The mind reels at the possibilities.

I did like two seconds of research into it and got a pic of the location. I was curious what the store looked like.. Here it is. It's a Supercuts now... 


Well, there you have it. At one time there was a video store and nowadays you can get haircuts there... I guess everyone needs haircuts but I'd way prefer that there was a video store with a Xerox in it...
