Pod Stallions 60: The Martian Chronicles



We're back with an all new show!

This month's episode is devoted to Ray Bradbury's "The Martian Chronicles", not the book so mentioned (although it is mentioned) but the epic three evening NBC mini series from 1980 starring Rock Hudson!


Topics include childhood fears, TV Spider-Man, cheap-o Rack Toys, Arthur C Clarke, Starlog, poster collecting, ventriloquist dummies, Barry Morse  and much, much more.

So journey with us to the red planet!


Agree with us, have your own childhood recollection of the series?  give us spirited debate on our facebook wall.







Plenty more content on the PodStallions Facebook page!

Hat Decision Day



 With spring finally arrived, it's time to pick a new hat, leaning towards the Wide Brim Hunter, gives me a nice "Marlin Perkins" vibe.

Bean Bag Love



I'm doing a renovation on my basement, any rumpus room seems eerily incomplete without at least one of these.....

The Adventures of Steve!


I have a real soft spot for generic knock-off action figures and I find this page from France kind of mind-blowing as I've never seen many of these "Steve the Adventurer" toys.

The Mego like Steve was known as "Demo Man" in other parts of the world and his head is a really blatant copy of Big Jim but unlike a lot of KO figures, there's a higher than normal amount of care in this guy.

Eagle 1 Spaceship


I absolutely adore the Mattel Space:1999 Eagle and have never met a kid who had it, whose eyes didn't glaze over when I mention it.

Bionic People in France


Steve Austin and his crew were truly an international hit as evidenced by this wonderful catalog page from France. I love how Jaimie is now "Super Jaimie" but Maskatron? That's multilingual baby!

Muppet Big Wheels



Shouldn't Kermit's ride be an "It's not easy being Green" Machine?

Oh, it was too early for that, I'm going to lay down now....

Crystar: Crystal Warrior



Crystar is pretty bittersweet for me as it's possibly the last action figure I ever purchased as a kid, I was in the last few weeks of being 12 and the winds of change were blowing.  I still think they were neat.

Scooby Doo Song and Dance Machine



I wish this concept had been expanded to more cartoon properties. Scooby is cool as heck but I'm a "Josie and the Pussycats" man....
