I have been watching this old series lately and I could not believe how much I LOVE THIS SHOW!. It had everything a young boy could want in a HERO, bionic powers, star athlete, secret agent, astronaut, and always got the girl in the end.
It kind of makes me sad that there is no more live-action adventure series ( Night rider, The A-Team, Air wolf, etc. ) for kids anymore where adults are the heroes and not just kids. Somewhere down the line Studios and Producers think that kids only associate with other kids and adult role models don't work. I have always said throughout my career:
Just a blast from the past for those who grew up in the 80's with the Turtles cartoon. I do not care for the new extreme super pumped up version at the movies, I preferred it when they where fun and silly. Krang's android body was my favorite thing about that old cartoon just because he was so bizarre and outlandish. Here is some versions I have been playing with for my own amusement.
Something new this time, a look into my hobbies. I figured "what the hell" and share some of my custom figure and stuff once and a while.
First up is my Cobra Commander which I made out of the Daredevil movie figure. That's right kids, Cobra is commanded by Ben Affleck! The head is from some preschool figure with a jaw added from a "Gundam" model and with the base from a "Wolverine" model kit, put a coat of paint on and that's it.
Not the most amazing stuff, but it is fun to do and I enjoy it.
