Within the category of things that are awesome this ranks among the most, well, awesome.

Captain Kordon’s ship in the Thundarr ep “Treasure of the Moks” is represented thus:

What’s  really cool about her and Thundarr is she was in mothballs for the ten years (give-or-take) bookending the show before being scrapped. It makes perfect sense for the program’s creators to posit her deck and tower being around thousands of years later, given things like the Statue of Liberty and St. Louis Arch also still exist.

Green Team form a stack before breaching the notorious brothel The Honeypot Hideout.


Skelias advances ahead of Gundalf while Heston covers the rear.

Heston “Anaconda” Jones. I love this fig; he even has a spare mag in his “helmet” band!

Dredd. Judge Dredd.

Try it.
