Another weekend, another couple great shows

Any weekend that is a double-header for toy shows and/or comic cons is a good one in this author's book. And last weekend offered a toy show up at a DAV / VFW hall in Shelby Township, Michigan, on Saturday, plus the Motor City Nightmares show in Novi, which I took in on Sunday. Great stuff, all around, and plenty of TV-related stuff to behold ...

First up, for the Shelby Township toy show, we've got some "Munsters," we've got the requisite "Bionic Woman" and "Lost in Space." We've got a little "Man from U.N.C.L.E." And we've even got a "Planet of the Apes" item that has to be from the TV show, rather than the movie series, because it's of the character Galen, played by Roddy McDowell on the TV series. I've been loving that single-season show, DVR-ing it right now from MeTV!

Next, let's see what we can find from the Motor City Nightmares show ...

This Velma cosplayer was there in honor of Matthew Lillard, who portrayed Shaggy in the live-action "Scooby-Doo" movies. You'll see him below, talking to fans, one in particular who brought a Mystery Machine replica for Lillard to sign! :)

Sheryl Lee, that unforgettable Laura Palmer of "Twin Peaks," was also there to greet fans. Have you braced yourself for the new "Twin Peaks"??? Can't believe it's already coming out this month! We are soooooooo signed on to that! And Lee will be there, along with many other members of the cast of the original 1990 series.
