Buzz-Off Helping Some Local Bees To Fertilize An Almond Tree


I took this one in my backyard. Buzz is up in our almond tree. We've had it for like 5 years and for the past 2 years crows have gotten all the almonds. They dive on them before they are ripe and fly away with them. I've hidden and squirted a hose up at them a couple times. It hasn't really had much of an effect on them.

Buzz-Kill also has an axe but it looks mad dumb in his claw. Only his left pincer is upon and the only way he can hold the axe is sideways. Look at it. You can see it there. You can also put it over his claw I guess but that looks wac. His wings are awesome though.

Three More Gi Joe Pics. Two From My Front Yard and One From Spring Lake..


I took this pic of Flash in my front yard. That grey thing that you see by his head is a piece of rock type stuff from a fishtank that I found in the garage. I don't really know why it was there. I thought it added a small dash of texture. It doesn't really do anything but still. 


I took this one inside a small nativity set that I found at the flea market. I left it out in the front yard so the sun and the rain have aged it to where it sort of looks like a cabin that The Viet Cong might hide in. It does to me at least.

I've always been a fan of Major Bludd. Dude might have been the 1st ever mail away figure that I ever got. Either him, Cobra Commander or Duke. I did a lot of the GI Joe Mail aways but it always sort of hurt to cut the Flag Points off the card... 

                                      

I took this pic over at Spring Lake. I brought another action figure with me on a hike. This pic was a bit tough to get. I had to get down on the ground and dig a small hole in the ground to get my camera on an even level with Wet Suit. I got all muddy. I'll say it again, We have to suffer for our art sometimes...

Hey kids. We have a really great show ahead of us this week. We start off with the latest on me and Pooptronics and the woe that is my life. It's not that bad really but man, it might be getting worse..

For At The Movies We're gonna take a gander at 2 different movies at once! It's unheard of. The movies are really similar though... What are they? You'll have to tune in to find out..

For the main event of the show we take a look at He Man and my growing MOTU collection as well as the first year of MOTU releases, everything from He Man to Skelator and all the nerds inbetween! It's a ton of fun!

At the end I tell the tale of something I found on the side of the road and the adventure of bringing it home... It's a tale for the ages. 

IMHO this is one of the most jam packed episodes I've ever done. I hope you dig it as much as I dug making it.

Tunnel Rat On The Mekong Delta



This pic was a bear to get. Dude, it was muddy by the bank and I slipped and my hand fell into some thorns. It was wac but I've said it before and I'll say it again... you have to suffer for your art..

I took this one over by Spring Lake here in Santa Rosa. Me and the wife were on a walk and I brought him along just in case.  It was actually one of the nerdiest things I've done as an adult and that covers a lot of ground...

The IseeRobots Show Ep.15: The Top 5 Movies Of 2019 Plus More He Man Talk!




Hey kids! This week on the show we're gonna go over my top 5 movie picks of 2019. It was a pretty great year for movies and I think that the pics reflect that. There are some real gems in there.

Before we get there though we start off with an interesting phone message I received on the garage answering machine. We take a trip out there to check it out. It's a big deal and I need to know what you guys think.

For At The Movies we take a look at a pretty fun little Sci-Fi movie called Underwater. It stars Kristen Stewart and takes place 7 miles below the sea... I'll tell you all about it.

Then we have the top 5.. It's great..

At the end we talk some He-Man and a bunch of other stuff as well.. It's a great episode like always and if you guys got a minute PLEASE tell a friend!

Action Figure Pics Of Crystal Ball, B.A Baracus and Beachhead A Gi Joe and A-Team Crossover

Army Ranger Bosco Baracus Goes weak in the knees when face to face with Crystal Ball's Hypno-Shield. 
I dig this picture I took it over in my side yard. The two figs are in front of a pallet that we are using to store some pots on. You know, to keep them off the ground. Anyway I like how the inside of the pallet sort of makes a mirror effect. 

I also dig how it looks like B.A is really about to go down. The blank expression on the action figure goes a long way toward selling that point. The ground was moist so I was able to get his feet a little bit down into the dirt to balance him a bit.


I had a hard time getting a good pic of Beachhead believe it or not. I don't really know why. He's an awesome figure. One of the best in the RAH line really. I really don't even think that this is that good of a picture. It's alright. He's actually up in a tree. There is a giant Redwood right next to me. I've taken a lot of action figure pics on or around it. I makes everything look like Endor.

Man-E-Faces Feeling Pretty Cranky



I took this pic out in my front yard. MOTUs are great and I love them but they don't have the best possibility. That's part of their charm but it doesn't make for awesome photos or anything. That's not true really. What I mean to say is that I haven't really struck on the way to take awesome photos of them. Yet.  (ha.)

Man-E-Faces has three potential face, the one that you see there, a robot one and a caucasian male. I like all three but I think this one is my favorite. This seems like the heel one. Like Skeletor has taken over his mind or something. The Robot is prolly the good guy and the other face is like his civilian ID.. 

Do you think that each head is a different personality or do you think they are disguises? I'm leaning toward schizophrenia..

Quick Kick Catches A Bad One To The Gut...


Not everyone makes it home. We witness a kindly chaplain giving Quick Kick his last rites. El Salvador 1980

I took this pic in my backyard. For some reason I had the hardest time getting a shot that I liked.. Oh, that's ketchup on Quick Kick's gut. 

During the shoot Father Mulcahy's arm peg fell out. I've since been able to repair him but at the time he only has one arm.. That's why it's sort of out of the shot. Out of sight out of mind as they say..

Gnawgahyde Looking For A High Vantage Point. El Salvador 1980


I took this pic over in my sideyard. That red thing behind him is a big sign I found that says "Auto Loans" or something. It's weird that I don't know exactly what is says considering that it's over in my sideyard..

Merman Looking Back At His Life.. Was It All Worth It?


I took this pic over in my side yard. It has poor drainage so when it rains little puddles form. I liked how this one kind of sort of looked like a lake and how it made him seem Creature From The Black Lagoon-ish.. 

It took a ton of effort to get this pic. It was raining pretty hard and I had to kneel in the mud and put my elbows down into the ground to get the perspective that I wanted. I guess you have to suffer for your art..

Some GI Joe Pics I Took In My Front Yard



One of my resolutions this year was to try and ramp up my action figure photography.. Here is the 1st dose of pics.. I hope there are a ton more but you know how resolutions are...

That's Spirit.. He's the GI Joe Tracker.. His gun shoots arrows.. kind of culturally insensitive really but you know.. it was the 80's...


Duke is like the field commander of GI Joe.. He's always been a favorite of mine.  I believe that he was supposed to die in the original GI Joe Cartoon movie but after the Optimus Prime Death Backlash they pulled back on that idea... 


This is Chuckles.. He's like the CIA liaison for the Joe Team. For some reason he's kind of a hated character but I don't really know why. I like his shirt.. In the comics he is the dude that killed Cobra Commander.. I bet that rubs some folks the wrong way..

The IseeRobots Show Ep.14: The Big Movie List 2019 Plus Tons More!




This week on the show we have one of our annual traditions.. The Big Movie List! and this year it's a biggie.. I took in a record breaking (For Me) 103 flicks.. It was exhausting to even read all of them..

We start off with the latest on Pooptronics and all that.. It's still no fun at all. I have no idea where this is heading but I have to get back to work at some point right? It's getting tough...

Then we head to At The Movies where I'm gonna go over one of the best movies that I saw this past year, a movie called Uncut Gems. It stars Adam Sandler and man, it was tense.. I dug it a lot..

From there it's onto the main event of the show.. The Big Movie List.. 103 movies.. ugh.
I end the show with some Christmas talk, stuff like what I got and all that. It's an awesome segment with some He Man Talk and a ton of other stuff...

Overall I think this is a pretty great episode and I hope you guys dig it as much as I did putting it together..
