I hate that.
Turns out it may be another few days before I can get to it, which bugs me because I love hanging out here.
With the beautiful opening ceremony of the Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, I thought a brief but fun post would be this glimpse of an old, obscure set of ooky spooky trading cards:
Monster Olympics, UK, circa early '80s
It is a relatively rare and odd set... this first set only had 18 cards, and a second reportedly had some 50 cards, but neither set was officially released in the U.S. and not being a big card expert, I can't say much more than "COOL!" and "I would love to see a real Monster Olympics!"
I wonder what a battle between the Slimeball and the Creature From The Pit would be like...
Images and information were culled from the remarkable (and remarkably organized) Monster Wax site. Please go there, dig through memories upon memories.
At any rate, just a little Olympic sumthin' to tide you over.
Enjoy your Valenti -- actually, it's Chinese New Year.
Happy Year of the Tiger, everyone!
Gong Xi Fa Cai!
That's Mandarin for Dumdumshrekpop!
