Equipment: Hallmark Keepsake Ornament U.S.S. Franklin

Star Trek is one of the greatest science fiction franchisesIMG_0367 in history. Having endured for more than 50 years Star Trek appeals to geeks of all ages. There have been 5 television shows and 13 movies. Something that popular has to have a slew of collectibles from toys to kitchenware to beer and, my favorite, Christmas ornaments.

 The very first Star Trek ornament produced by Hallmark was the original U.S.S. Enterprise from the 1960’s show in 1991. Over the years Hallmark has continued the tradition of producing Star Trek ornaments and not all of them have been ships. Hallmark branched out to produce character ornaments (Kirk, Spock, Worf) and scenes (The Guardian of Forever, Spock’s Death from Wrath of Khan) to capitalize on the differences in the fan base. Personally I am a sucker for the ships and every year I wait to see what is in store for Christmas season. This year’s ornament comes from the last big screen adventure, Star Trek: Beyond.

Equipment: Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends Figures Wave 1…A Review

The summer has barely taken hold and alreadyHSC0079Alg theaters are being bombarded with movies. So far we have had Aliens, Pirates of the Caribbean, Bay Watch and, of course, Guardians of the Galaxy. When the first Guardians movie premiered it was surprise hit. Even I didn’t even think it was going to be good (not that my opinion counts) but it was amazing. Guardians of the Galaxy was a cross between a superhero movie and a Star Wars installment. Personally, I think that is why it was a success. Continue reading
