Credit where credit is due…
I’m all about giving credit where it is due so at this time let me through a HUGE shout out to Mr. Randy Ham. Randy was the organizer of the “Take an action figure to work day” last week. Thank you again good sir for putting the event together and encouraging folks to play!
The S-Type Body giveaway… and the winner is…
Congratulations to Vincent and Zachery Mondano of New Jersey for their winning submission of 8 year old Zachery’s “Multi-Color Man”. I can’t wait to see it!
I was hoping to announce a new contest today but I got a bit busy as…
I’ve officially returned to TKO 8 Television
Yep after a few months hiatus all is well and good in the local TV hood. As part of the deal I secured a Tuesday night 7PM prime time slot for the new “Jim’s Toy Box” variety show. The first program is scheduled to air March 29th!
And that’s about that. Been a crazy busy day for sure but it is so much more rewarding when you have something to show for your efforts at the end of the day. Too bad I lost an hour. I could have gotten so much more done!
Now, Go Play!
Pop culture notes
The 8 inch Dukes of Hazzard Toys are shipping from Figures Toy Company…. This one made me a little giddy. I’m not terribly impressed with the Luke and Boss sculpts versus the original Mego but the Bo looks so much better and for the first time ever we get Roscoe P. Coltrain!
New to the Toy Box
Ordered and downloaded Scott Schiaffo’s “Music for film: ‘The Shoestring Serenade’” – Really digging a lot of the tracks. “Pinching Alfred” is perfect for a project I’ve had in mind for a long time. If you are a film or video maker you would do well in giving the album’s sample a listen. While it’s normally easier to work with custom created music for a project, building a library of stock music is never a bad idea especially when it’s GOOD production music. PLUS you might be surprised what the music inspires in you. Full review coming soon to the Toy Box and Amazon.
S-Type body giveaway contest –
Don’t forget gang the contest ends March 8th 11:59PM CST… do something to make this bad boy not nekkid.
Phase 3 – Television Show – After looking at the camera, light and sound test it is quite obvious; your old buddy Jimbo needs to break some habits and get away from being a Jumbo.
And that’s a wrap for today. Got to get going. My father in law is buying dinner and so the new and improved Jimbo on a diet can wake up fresh in the morning. Thanks for checking in!
