It's Time To Light The Lights

Sorry its been so long between posts but I've been very busy with a new job, new car, kids etc.

This post is about one of my favorite toy sub sets ever. The amazingly sculpted Electric Mayhem Muppet band from Palisades Muppet figures. I have the complete set and will be shortly (HA!) working on a custom diorama for them to be displayed in which will hopefully look somthing like this.

I'll also be working on a display/shelving system to display my other muppet figures that will hopefully look somthing like this.

So, lets look at the members of the band.......


Dr Teeth is the laid back founding member of the band, the key board player and lead singer. His character is mostly based on a jazz musician called Dr John

This figure, as with all the Palisades muppet figures is fantastically sculpted. There are 7 or 8 points of articulation. His colours are show perfect. There is a black and white stripy top variant but i like the show colours best. Although he has limited poseability, he always looks good behind any desk or piano. The good Dr comes with a "25 yrs of the muppet show" figure stand, his keyboard and his trademark hat. Dr Teeth is from series 1 which is before Palisades started using magnets to keep hats on but its not a big issue it just means that his hat is a little loose.
All in all a great figure.

Next time I'll be lloking a Floyd Pepper.

Till then..... Enjoy your toys!

Spoiler Alert

What if you made the Hulk mad by firing him into space, than made him madder by sending him to an apocalyptic planet, then just when he was calming down you kill the love of his life, then he finds a way to come back for revenge? Well that's what happens in Planet Hulk/World War Hulk.
When Hulk gets back to earth he's gone all Gladiator and looks immense. This Marvel Universe figure is stunning. For a 3 1/4 inch figure the detail is beautiful, the (you're a dead man) look on his face is bang on the money.

Accessories wise King Hulk is spot on. He comes with sword, axe shield and removable shoulder armour/chest strap item and stand.

All in all a first rate Hulk figure and the best Hulk in the line so far.
