Who remembers this fantastic cartoon? Filmation’s Tarzan was a kid favorite for several years on Saturday mornings in the 70s and 80s. I had read that they used rotoscoping for some of the animations but had never seen their sources until now! In this video are just a few scenes from the 1934 Tarzan And His Mate movie- do any of you know of other … Continue reading Rotoscope Sources for Filmation’s Tarzan Cartoon
As a kid you did not always have an appropriate villain for your heroes, especially when traveling in a car. So, you just pretend that Batman has traveled back to the Hyborian Age to battle Conan! Who wins? Well, being a huge Robert E. Howard fan I slightly favor Conan… Continue reading Action Battle- Who Wins?

Looks great on your desk! (Logan’s Run, 1976, MGM) I re-watch this film every few years. One of the few respectable sci fi movies that came before Star Wars (1977). Though it’s visual style is a bit disco oriented; it’s fast pace, great acting, and interesting ideas make it fun to watch. And it’s simple enough and sincere that it makes a fun movie for … Continue reading Print & Build Logan’s Run Movie Model
“Once they were the mightiest of monsters, now they’re Monster Mites!” An homage to the vintage vending machine toys that taunted our grocery store visits. I designed the figure and then decided to make a box for the little guy. Just 3D print the figure and apply several paints of spray paint to get that “molded plastic” look. The box art is a pdf file … Continue reading Print & Make a Retro Baby Stak

I’ve always loved the organic design of the General Ursus pistol. Though it was a bit tricky to get it right, I think it’s pretty darn close. It’s an .STL file for 3D printers. It is one piece, solid, and can be scaled for MEGOs too! I will make many of my custom props and toys available for download… https://www.mediafire.com/file/xnldjyb3e1r1q8c/cosplaygunforfun.stl/file Continue reading Download a POTA Cosplay Piece!

Not just for Saturday mornings, those of us who grew up in the 70s/80s with cable TV were granted a wide range of weekday morning cartoons. They came from new, kid friendly cable channels and larger, non-network TV stations looking to fill empty time slots with cheap syndicated programs. Continue reading “Morning Moments” Comic
