Another "Dynasty" fan shares photos of his collection

In the September 20, 2013 and May 24, 2014 posts of this blog, we showed you the collection of Bjørn, an avid "Dynasty" fan who owns several wardrobe pieces from the show. Now, behold part of the collection from another fan of Nolan Miller's wonderful costuming.

"I am a Nolan Miller collector," this fan tells BRBTV, "and the bulk of my collection is gowns from 'Dynasty.' I have four 'Dynasty' gowns and a few 'Dynasty' sketches, along with a few non-'Dynasty' pieces."

This collector is wondering about others out there who own Nolan Miller pieces. If you do, comment on this post! (And see that September 2013 link above for some comments from other collectors.)

Remember the divine pink poufy piece below on our girl Alexis Carrington Colby? Recognize the others? Which episodes are they from? And did Alexis wear all of them, or only one of them? Let's play a little guessing game! You can certainly see Nolan Miller's trademark 1980s touches on these lovely gowns ...

Terrific TV Toys: "Star Trek" Scotty figure by Diamond Select / EMCE

He's the security chief, the leader of those red-shirts that seemed to get beaned on whatever planet the landing party hits. He's the engineering chief who tries to keep the ship together while Kirk is trying whatever ploy he has to try to fool the aliens in that other ship. He's also the third in command aboard the Starship Enterprise, right after Spock and before Sulu. He's Scotty! And he's the inspiration for this Diamond Select / EMCE figure, for the third and final part of a special miniseries on Terrific TV Toys ...

Terrific TV Toys: "Star Trek" Keeper figure by Diamond Select / EMCE

In the "Star Trek" universe, what is the "Keeper" the keeper of? Well, one Earth female, for one thing, a little creature whose beauty was definitely in the eye of the beholder! We know this from the original pilot of the original "Trek" series, "The Cage," as well as the two-part episode it later became, "The Menagerie." In the latest episode of the Terrific TV Toys series, we get a look at a figure that takes its name from the Keeper of those episodes, though it takes its looks from a different episode, "The Corbomite Maneuver." It's the second of a three-part story arc on reproductions of classic Mego "Star Trek" figures ...

Next week, the final part of the three takes us back into humanoid territory!
