    Surely no jive turkey team is going to fight Kabuki Vader without a Space Black Dynamite! That Kabuki Vader man always trying to keep a star brother down.

  3. It's awesome that you grabbed a shot from Laserblast. As campy is it gets and very obscure, but I remember seeing it at the drive-in when I was a kid. Brings back fond memories.

  5. "And a special appearance by Sonny Chiba, as himself!" - LOL, that's great stuff. Best campaign idea...EVAR!

    But really, this needs to made into a movie. Better yet, a series of movies.
