Season's Greetings

Hello all - May you have a very Merry Christmas and a booty-filled New Year.

Christmas Special #1 - Flashback: All I wanted for Christmas... in 1983...

My Dad made me the Ice Planet Hoth out of Plaster on a huge piece of chipboard
- I freakin' loved it. (images via

Christmas Special #2 - Flashback: Ok, so for the modern child The ViewMaster doesn't move or talk, they aren't Japanese, nor do they have any sort of Gameboy-style application but by god I loved my sets including: Road Runner, The Land of the Lost, Spiderman and more...Nothing takes me back to that feeling of childhood wonder faster than the click and the turn of the wheel.

And finally - here's a great article about the discovery and restoration of the original Rankin Bass Puppets from Rudolf The Red Nose Reindeer .

Well, well, well, if it isn't the ole blog of the Amor cad!!!

Classic stuff, I've had quite a good chuckle scrolling through your sizeable backlog. (Note, let's always agree to keep that last sentence in context).

Hope you had a great Christmas and New Years. xxx

PS I used to want nothing else but Star Wars gear too. Ah.
