Here are some new sh*te photies to start your new year right!

How did you spend your New Year’s Eve?  I spent it unconventionally, for me.  While Mrs. LeBrain snuck in some early evening Bingo, I went down to City Hall with my buddy Jason and his family.  Apparently, there was going to be a toy show and sale / 80’s retro night going on.  One of my favourite Transformers vendors in the whole wide world, B&K Collectibles, was going to be there!

There were a ton of people there.  Also present was the DeLorean from Back to the Future, and K.I.T.T. from Knight Rider.  Although I didn’t stick around to see him, Todd Bridges from 80’s sitcom Diff’rent Strokes was also on hand last night.  Yee-haw.

After the toy show I got Jen at Bingo and we headed home to watch the Leafs barely beat the Bruins.  I fell asleep well before midnight.

But…toys!

My two scores:  Transformers Masterpiece Smokescreen.  Similar to, but different from, Masterpiece Prowl.  I also snagged some snazzy new missiles for my Prowl figure, from third party company Before and After.  The kit includes the “Omega Launch” weapons which snap over Prowl’s normally teeny ones, and a decal sheet which I have not yet applied (if I do).

HAPPY 2015!

Music, movies, and books! I’ve been very occupied these last couple days.

I get the Guiness’ Book of World Records, and the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not books every year. I imagine my surprise when I discovered a friend of ours in both books! Apparently, Sweet Pepper Klopek holds the world record for “Most Baking Sheets Buckled Over the Head for One Minute.” This is a guy who has been on my living room couch!  Lemon Kurri says:

“He’s in there a couple times. Most mouse traps sprung on a tongue in 1 min too.”
