Captain Power! Power On!

Captain Power (from Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future)

Please permit me today to indulge in one of the beloved, diamond-in-the-rough shows from my youth, the live-action 80's post-apocalyptic adventure show "Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future". It was in many ways ahead of it's time, but it was also kinda dark. The effects were good for the era, especially Lord Dread's menacing CGI robots, Sauron in particular.

The show also featured one of the coolest toy lines, with great looking action figures and ships/vehicles that would actually interact with the tv show - you could actually shoot the bad guys on the screen, and be shot by them! It blew my mind as a kid!

In any case, I hear the show may be up for a revival, this time under the name "Phoenix Rising"! More details on the Phoenix Rising Facebook page.

Aaaanyway, a bunch of cool fan submissions today too;

Abdul does his Simpsonized versions of superheroes at his page

"Le Brickinator" has send it some cool Punx renditions of Marvel's Falcon! Nice!

John is celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who with this cool collage;

 And Cliff is back again with more great stuff; giving Doctor Who's 6th Doctor his Peri, as well as one of enemies, “Sil” who first appeared in “the Vengeance on Varos”

Doctor Who's Mystery Doctor

Doctor Who's mysterious (John Hurt) Doctor
Well at the finale of the last season (series) of Doctor Who, we were treated to quite the mystery in the form of the John Hurt's Doctor. We don't know where he fits exactly, but apparently he did committed some act that was "not in the name of the Doctor". Quite the tantalizing mystery! I guess we'll see what happens in the 50th Special!

More DW goodness as well today from Cliff! Here's his description;
"Back to the 11th Doc this time, and 2 scenes from an Episode called “Victory of the Daleks” ,  one with Winston Churchill, Prof Bracewell, and the other pic of the Doctor with the Tardis self-destruct button (Jammy Dodger) and the "Paradigm" of Daleks."
