    Dude, never apologize for ignoring MySpace LOL. The Super7 page is cool of course but this board and the S7 blog are really the places to get "the news" as we all know. Plus ... I don't think it hurts to revisit that clip. It is deeply cool and fun.

    Damn I must be blind. I haven't seen it in the store...maybe I'm just distracted by other things that I don't see it.

    Might as well resurrect this thread; seems like it has been long enough. Not sure if this is new or not, but I caught this on the tube last night (can't remember what I was watching exactly, but I am sure it was something really exciting).

    I don't know what the story is on the giant Rangeas head, but man is it pretty cool. Anyway, props to T9G for this appearance, random and unappreciated as I am sure it is to be with the general public.

    what?! it's not the first time t9g has made a western tv appearance, but this is nuts. is that a giant, fiberglass rangeas head? from a "life-size" sculpture they made at some point, or specially for the commercial? so random. unless the same guy who put it on castle is responsible for this, too.

    on a side note: lovely paint job.

    ^ that must be it! sounds familiar. i still wonder how it traveled from point a to point b. funny they went for that instead of the more usual godzilla knockoff.

    I was thinking about making a thread for unexpected appearances by our favorite toys, characters, kaiju, etc. in the media, when I found this, but I think that concept might fit this thread?


    I was looking to buy a messenger bag to replace my ancient backpack the other day when I found this on Crumpler's website:

    [​IMG]

    Petroglyph in an aircraft hanger, lion, giant Bullmark Miclas playing with a company lorry, petroglyph-man engulfed in some kind of apparent thermonuclear blast?

    ... Well if that's the day in the life of one of the bags' designers, then I'm sure the dang things must hold up pretty well under normal wear & tear. Sign me up!


    PS- I haven't tried Crumpler's bags yet, so I was thinking of buying one used to take them for a test drive. Any suggestions or opinions on similar bags would be appreciated in a PM.
