Latest .. On my Collecting NEWSFront ... Politichio

I have to get me one of these ..
made of resin .. but an amazing sculpt !!

Phalanx Studio has just announced the availability of their new Politichio: The Golden Nose and Lying Puppet fine art resin. The new 5.5” piece explores the greed and deception of politicians through the classic tale of Pinnochio, the wooden puppet turned boy whose nose grew ever longer with each lie told. The sculpt is nicely done – immediately recognizable as the classic character while at the same time subtlely presenting the modern aspect via the business suit and the ‘secrets’ attache case. The figure is being released on a made to order basis and will be available in three variants – gold glasses, black glasses, or transparent glasses.

GOONIES ... Never Say Die !!!!

On of my favorite movies .. one of the ones that whenever it comes on you have to keep watching until it's over ...


The Goonies is a 1985 adventure-comedy film directed by Richard Donner. The screenplay was written by Chris Columbus from a story by executive producer Steven Spielberg. A band of kids from the "Goon Docks" neighborhood of Astoria, Oregon, hoping to save their homes from demolition, go on an adventure to find the buried treasure of One-Eyed Willy, a legendary 17th-century pirate.
No .. FunKo hasn't made them into wobblers .. yet .. !!
Mezco has made them into action figures though ..

Of course SD Comic Con had a Lars exclusive last year..
or Sloth as he gets called sometimes ..

There are tons of toys and games out there ..
from the past as well as recently ..

1985 GOONIES Board Game

eBay GOONIES Search

They did a cartoon .. of course ..

Love the movie poster art ..

Here is a very cool reunion picture I found on the net ..

The Goonies, a group of teenage friends living in Astoria, Oregon, face foreclosure on their families' homes from the expanding Astoria Country Club. On one of their last days, while rummaging through Mikey Walsh’s attic, they uncover a news clipping, a map, and an artifact relating to a rumor of a forgotten buried pirate treasure in the area. Stricken by adventure, the group decides to search for One Eyed Willie's treasure.

The Goonies fall on the bad side of the family of criminals known as the Fratellis while stumbling upon their hideout while following the map. Trapped by the Fratellis in the basement of a weather-beaten beachfront restaurant, they flee down a tunnel they discover in the basement. The gang wanders through a series of caves looking for the lost treasure, avoiding treacherous booby traps set by the pirates. With the Fratellis in close pursuit, the group risks life and limb navigating the cave until they discover the hidden treasure on board The Inferno, One Eyed Willie's ship. The Fratellis capture the group on board the ship, then force them to walk the plank. As the cave begins to collapse around them, the Goonies are rescued by Sloth, the third, deformed Fratelli brother who had been mistreated by his family.

On the beach outside the cave, the police capture the Fratellis as the group is reunited with their families, devastated at their inability to hold onto any of the treasure lost in the cave's collapse. All hope is restored when Rosalita, the Walshes' housekeeper, discovers a handful of precious jewels in Mikey's marble bag. With the new fortune, Mikey saves everyone’s homes from foreclosure, as The Inferno, One-Eyed Willie, and its cargo of "rich stuff" mysteriously sails over the horizon.
