Well, I just ordered the Henkels knife roll, plus some other goodies from Williams Sonoma and Amazon. Thanks for the sound advice.

Where's the love when you go walking around with funk on your knife?

You mean you don't condition the blade of your knives with artifacts from past cooking endeavors? It enhances the palate, I tell you.

What?! Not the fake Zero Halliburton case?

Good move to skip it, that thing looks like a drill box from Harbor Freight.

I love the handcuffed briefcase. I guess that's lame today, but when I was a kid the handcuffed briefcase was the sign that they meant business. Anyone remember this show?:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_lsF...elated&search=


They had the handcuffed briefcase a lot in that show. I miss that show.

When I was a kid, I had the Six Million Dollar Man doll, the one where he came wearing red sweats and you could look through the back of his head to get a magnified view through his bionic eye. I also had the Oscar Goldman doll, with briefcase. If you opened up the briefcase incorrectly, it would blow apart into pieces.

Pretty cool.

I don't remember that show, but I remember this one, which also occasionally featured briefcases handcuffed to wrists. Simian wrists, that is.

LOL.

Well, I had the dolls when I was a kid. I didn't keep them cherried out inside the box until I was 40. For giggles I checked eBay to see if the dolls were still around. They are:




I had Steve Austin and Oscar Goldman and that lame mini rocket, but I don't remember having that robot-looking one. I also never got the Critical Assignment Arms:







Here's an illustration of how Oscar Goldman's "exploding" briefcase works:




I also had the GI Joe, with Kung Fu Grip:




That looks like the one I had but I can't recall for sure. I could swear my GI Joe had a scar on his cheek. I do remember though that my doll was all screwed up because I took him into the bath tub and his beard and hair fell off in the water. I was pissed.

I was thinking about my Lance Link lunchpail last night and it jogged my memory a little. When I got it, I thought it was a Planet of the Apes lunchpail. I was pissed when I realized it wasn't. My reaction was like, "OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD, YOU DID IT! DAMN YOU ALL TO HELL!"

I was always into these guys:









Adventure People. The back of the box got me everytime.

I received some Lancelot Link tapes as a gift a while back. That show was so funny. It was about 1,000 times better than the chimp channel, or any stupid Tony Danza ape movie. Those Lancelot Link people had it going on. 60's spy vibe with chimps? I don't think it gets much better than that.

Spy chimps. Chimps wearing monacles. Chimps driving boats and cars. The Evolution Revolution. Brilliant stuff.

GI Joe memories.... I had some from before they came out with the bristley hair, where the hair was just painted onto the head. And, yeah, I remember a scar on one of them too. My brother had Big Jim, with his "sports camper," and a button you could push on his back to karate chop. This was pre-disco, but Big Jim was definitely the disco version of GI Joe.

As for TV, I was all about the Thunderbirds, and Gerry Anderson's earlier supermarionation series Stingray.

Ok, I'll play.

GI Joe didn't do it for me at all in any variation.

Living overseas with a bunch of Brits as a kid I was priviledged to own "Action Man".

Action Man is the hotness. The realism and detail in his weapons, uniform and equipment is impressive.

I had various uniforms and kit, but my top favorites were my Para Commando with FAL and my Iwo Jima Marine with .30 cal 1919 and tripod.

Here are some action man pics:

I don't know if you guys have seen the latest GI Joe/Action Man type of figures, but they're awesome. The kids today have it good.

For example, check out this GSG9 operator "Konrad":










The weapons on these dolls are really nice. The magazines come out of the MP5's and everything, and there's the optional HK magazine clamp for two mags. The sling is the correct HK sling, with working sling swivels. The Hensolt telescope quickly detaches from the MP5. It's unreal. And the uniforms are accurate down to the Adidas boots.

I was at a Toys R Us shopping for a gift and I was so impressed with "Konrad" when I saw it that I actually bought one. Then I felt like a dork so I tossed it in the trash. But definitely not because it was shitty; it was a sweet toy. If I were a kid today, I would be playing with these for sure. When my nephew gets old enough, I'll score him a few of these dolls.

The anime now is awesome as well. I grew up with stuff like this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P39cFXRU8uU


Now there's stuff like this:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-9hK6iETYQ


That Macross Zero looks sweet. I haven't seen that one yet.

Awsome.

I was raised on Tintin and action man.

I have every "Tantan" that I had as a child including a few in Arabic that read back to front.

I assume you're aware there's a 109 in Tintin and the Picaros?



My personal favorite has always been King Ottokar's Scepter or Tintin in Tibet but they are all pretty great except for the Moon Missions.

The Action Man is no rookie, no sir, no aluminum suitcase here.


He also drives an Airportable Land Rover;


Action Man is a man of refined taste, i bet he wears a two tone Rolex and gets lots of this action;

Bruno, that Action Man stuff is decent given its time, but did Action Man have Kung Fu Grip?:




GI Joe did. At least the good GI Joe dolls did. And what's with the sticks of dynamite, pineapple grenades, bottlecap helmet, brass knuckle trench knife, Sterling, and Webley revolver? I guess that was cool when we were kids, but check out what's out now:




I'm blown away that today's kids have cool toys like this. Check out his personal weapons:




The magazines actually detach, as do the weaponlights, laser traget designators, and sound suppressors. The M4's buttstock even telesocopes open and closed. It's unreal.

The wrists articulate, and I think the hands are interchangeable to suit different weapons. It's crazy.

The only real screw-up on this doll is that he's not sporting a Sub or Sea-Dweller:




(I don't know how many of these guys I've seen with Subs and Sea-Dwellers. It's almost part of the look.)

Put the Oakleys on the doll, give him a beard, remove the sound suppressors, and update the outfit with a steel Sub or Sea-Dweller, swap out the cargo pants for blue jeans, put one (only one please) knee pad on his right knee, and swap out the tan cap with a FDNY basecall cap and it would be very authentic for a post-9/11 NSCT operator. (Blue Box Toys probably has this very doll in production or planned for production I would think.)

I can't wait until my nephew is old enough to play with stuff like this without swallowing the pieces or breaking the doll the first day out. I'll be as excited as he is.

on the gold. Here's gold:




Keep it real with steel:
