Binaltech: Bumblebee Knock Off

Bumblebee is one of the smallest and physically weakest Autobot. While his stature allows him to do his job better than most Autobots could manage, he is self-conscious about his size. Maybe this is why he makes fast friends among the humans. He looks up (so to speak) to the other Autobots, especially Optimus Prime, but what he doesn’t realize is that they look up to him. He may be small, but he’s brave, an he’s one of the most well-liked Autobots around. Bumlebee already has the respect he craves

Readers of this site will find this one easy, I think. I know the figure it came with shows up elsewhere on the site.

Jestergoblin’s Star Wars Blue Milk Recipe

I’ve been following Jestergoblin on Twitter for awhile now. I have to say the commingling of recipes and toy reviews on his site (http://jestergoblin.com/) is a change of pace for the norm. But as a Food Network and toy junkie, I have to say it’s a combination I enjoy. Now he’s amped that up by creating a […]

Hatchet Man

This one is stretching the TVFT name. More of a character seen in movies than from any particular film.

But I Ordered the Calamari

Engineernerd’s Top 10 Creepy Movies

I love scary movies. I’m not that much for over the top gore just to be gross. But I do love a movie that is a just plain good scare. Maybe it’s because my birthday and Halloween share the same month. 1. Phantom of the Opera (Lon Chaney). I know it’s a silent film. But […]
