After quite a long break, we are back to finish up our deflocking of Skippity Doo, a So-Soft pony that was in desperate need of restoration. In this final part of our series, we touch up her cutie marks (symbols) and her eyes with acrylic paint. Then we review how to replace the tail using a zip tie to prevent rust formation in the future. Finally, we style her hair as well as reviewing some basic hair styling tips. After a year and a half wait, she's all set for display!Read More
RetroBlasting received a request from a fan - Tim - who thought he had lost all his childhood toys in a house fire when he was a kid. Recently, however, a shoebox was found that had been in the attic, and it contained one lone survivor. Tim had painted this R5-D4 unit red as a kid and was unhappy with the result, so the toy was tossed in a random box and forgotten. But since it was the only toy he had left, he contacted us to ask if we could salvage this little droid, and we were excited to take on the task!Read More
RetroBlasting heads back to the early 80s to review Marvel's Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends cartoon which originally aired from 1981-83, the last years before the deregulation of children's television.
As a small child growing up in the Southern United States, it was cool to have a major TV show with Southern heroes and awesome car chases. Every Southern kid was told Hazzard County was in their state. It was a myth right up there with Santa Claus. We believed it and we wanted to believe it.Read More
