Kiki’s Kool Koins: Hans Solo and the Queen!!

Extremely Kool Koin, The Queen of England on the front and Hans Solo (Harrison Ford) on the reverse encased in Carbonite! Roughly 120 bones for the coin. Is it worth it? Absolutely!!!! To have Hans Solo/Harrison Ford on a coin is worth everything!! Will I buy it? Probably not at this price but it’s still priceless and worth it!!!! But a bit pricey for an ounce of silver.

I’ll find it on the secondary market at something closer to melt… a couple of Hamiltons.

My error…. this is a mint state 70 graded coin…nearly perfect! It is worth a dozen sawbucks! It’s a great collectors piece. would I pay 120 smackers for it? Probably not but I might pay 60 on the secondary market if I see it in this grade.

Han Solo Frozen in Pure Silver – Official Star Wars™ Legal Tender Silver Flawless Proofs!

Any true Star Wars fan will instantly recognize the image of the unfortunate rogue, Han Solo, frozen in carbonite by the evil Darth Vader in The Empire Strikes Back. That iconic scene represents one of the most famous cliff-hangers in film history. Would Han Solo survive to reappear in the next film, Return of the Jedi, or would he stay frozen in carbonite forever — doomed to remain the ultimate bounty hunter’s trophy displayed in the lair of Jabba the Hutt?

Now, just as an older and wiser Han Solo steps back onto the silver screen in the newest Star Wars movie The Force Awakens, the Pacific island nation of Niue has just released a brand new, officially licensed one-ounce silver proof featuring the image of Han Solo frozen in his carbonite slab. But, most any collector will tell you that pure silver beats dirty old carbonite any day! As an official $2 legal-tender coin, it features the royal portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, as well as the 2016 year date and the two dollar denomination. This impressive one-ounce silver proof is minted in 99.9% silver with a mintage of 10,000. It has been professionally graded as Proof-70 Ultra Cameo (PF70UCAM) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) and comes in a sonically-sealed acrylic case with a unique black core insert that gives a phenomenal contrast in color — allowing each intricate detail to shine even more brilliantly! Each comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity and the original mint packaging. It never hurts to have the Force with you, but to seize your Han Solo proofs, all you need to do is order now!

 

I went looking for Cuddles and Hans from the original film Polyester. My eyes and nose are still bleeding from watching and smelling it but realized that it was Heinz not Hans but the film was hysterical and here are Cuddles and Heinz and a guy named Tab Hunter. This was put up by public demand.

I really wish I was that beautiful!!! I might get a date with supermodel Kate Moss!!!

Doesn’t John Waters look suspiciously like Steve Buscemi? Who does Steve look suspiciously like?

My Favorite Lost in Space Episode

The Magic Mirror….Lost in Space…Season 1…Episode 21

This is my favorite LIS episode. It’s below but maybe you can get a better copy of it. It works on a very emotional level like many of the earlier episodes. Terrific stuff. Michael J. Pollard is in this episode who did a stunning job. I believe he was also in Bonnie and Clyde.

Michael J. Pollard

I strongly suspect Michael is Clint Howard. Clint is a good looking guy yet makes himself at times as really creepy or unsavory. Billy seems to get the good looking characters, Ron….gets a mishmash of things but leans towards good looking.

Clint has one ear that’s mangled and this photo reflects it, I believe. The ear appears to have been damaged in forceps delivery.

 

Shoulder Dystocia (Brachial Plexus Injury). This medical illustration series features a vaginal delivery using a forceps device to extract the infant’s head from the mother’s birth canal. As force is exerted, the baby’s shoulder is trapped on the mother’s pubic symphysis causing shoulder dystocia to the nerves of the arm and shoulder. An inset focuses on the brachial plexus injury. You can see how the ear could be damaged.

Clint Howard…Left ear but it could be right…cartilage as a rule heals badly due to rigidity and lack of vascularization…cute kid!
Clint and Ron Howard…Note ear showing

As a cosmic radiation storm approaches the planet, but Don is confident because Dr. Smith had been assigned the task of installing cosmic arrestors, but Judy tell him that she has seen them still lying on a pile of equipment. Don confronts Smith and insists he begin the job before it is too late. Meanwhile, Penny is missing and the adults fan out to find her before the storm strikes. Penny, out for a walk, has come across a large, ornate mirror. Smith finds her just as the storm strikes and they take shelter underneath, unaware that the cosmic radiation is having some effect on the mirror. After the storm has passed, Johnfinds the pair at the mirror, but Smith insists he not investigate, saying it is only worthless trash. In fact, Smith suspects the mirror’s frame is made of platinum.

The next day, Smith sets out to strip the mirror of its platinum coating, but Don insists he finish installing the cosmic arrestors. Smith complies but quickly abandons the task. Meanwhile, Penny and Judy have gone to the mirror and have set it up to view their reflections. Smith sees them in the distance and mutters for them to get away from his mirror—it is his platinum. The girls are examining themselves in the mirror but end up quarrelling over Judy’s comment that Penny is not interested in the things a girl her age should be. Penny ends up very upset and both girls say things they regret. Penny tearfully insists that she will stay the way she is forever.

Later, Penny goes back the mirror in search of Debbie who has discovered a small bell somewhere. She eventually realizes that the bloop has been able to pass through the mirror somehow, and then return to the real world with the bell. Penny herself falls through the mirror and finds herself in a dark, mysterious world. There she meets a nameless boy about her own age who invites her to stay and have fun. He tells her he heard what she said about staying as she was forever, and entices her by promising that if she stays with him, she will never grow up or have to change. Penny wavers and decides to spend some time with the boy, but she soon discovers that his idea of having fun—playing hide and seek with a monster and spying on the outer world through mirrors—to not interest her at all. She insists on returning home, but the boy says there is no way back, even when Penny asserts there must be, for the bloop entered and returned.

Dr. Smith actually witnessed Penny enter the mirror but disbelieved his own senses, sure that he was suffering from hallucinations. Later, though, he returns to destroy the mirror, the root of his problems, but he too falls through into the other world. He refuses to believe any of what he sees is real until he is attacked by the mirror monster. He grabs a rifle and flees toward the exit. There he lets off a random shot that hits a pool of water in front of the inside of the mirror and he is able to pass through to the outer world. Penny quickly understands what happened and begs the boy to go with her as the monster approaches closer and closer. At the last second, she shoots at the pool and passes back into the real world. Left behind, the boy only says that he cannot follow her… he has no reflection. Outside the mirror, as Penny stands in horror watching it be destroyed, we hear the tinkling of a bell.

Notes:Edit

  • Angela Cartwright posted online about this episode: “I always thought this episode ‘The Magic Mirror’ had a creepy quality to it… To this day, I have to admit, it occasionally crosses my mind
  • The title card shows the Jupiter 2 surrounded on practically all sides by outcroppings of rock. How the ship managed to crash land in this position strains credibility.
  • Michael J. Pollard played the part of the “boy.”
  • Although Pollard looked young he was actually in his mid-twenties when he played the part. He was born on May 30, 1939, in Passiac, New Jersey, USA.
  • Pollard was one of the few actors to have appeared on both classic Sci -Fi shows “Lost In Space” and “Star Trek”. Pollard starred in the Star Trek episode, “Miri,” and played Jahn.
  • This is one of the few episodes where Will and the Robot are NEVER seen.
  • This is one of the few times Dr. Smith wears this particular suit. Later, in “All That Glitters” this suit is given to Ohan, and is never seen again.
  • OOPS MOMENT! Dr. Smith marches off from the Jupiter 2 to deal with the alien mirror, leaving Debbie the Bloop behind. When he arrives at the mirror, Debbie is there ahead of him and not out of breath.
  • We are not told what happened to the mirror and what became of the young man inside it.
  • This Episode was repeated on Thames Television on February 28th 1969
  • This Episode was repeated on Granada Television on March 20th 1969
  • One reviewer said that this was a bittersweet episode of Lost in Space that has the always watchable Michael J Pollard, especially adept at portraying weirdos, guest starring as a mischievous boy who lives in a dimension on the other side of an alien mirror found by Penny. Pollard is so youthful and playful here, he really plays his part like a child stuck in the body of a young man, eternally trapped in the body of a teenager, never to grow old but longing for companionship.
  • This episode mirrors ‘Alice Through the Looking Glass.’ At the beginning, the child Penny, doesn’t want to have to mess with all that feminine ‘goop’ and try to be a young lady. However, at the end of the episode, Penny has transformed, and has decided to take upon the feminie “goop” and become a young lady.
  • Why do Penny and Doctor Smith take shelter from an electrical storm by hiding under a large metal object?
  • At one point, John refers to Debbie as a “he.”
  • Why aren’t John and Maureen more concerned when Smith declares he’s going to GET PENNY in such an evil, vindictive tone of voice?
  • Where is Will throughout this entire episode? Billy Mummy was filming “War of the Robots,” while Angela Cartwright filmed “The Magic Mirror.”
  • Where is the Robot throughout this entire episode? The Robot was filming “War of the Robots,” with Billy Mumy.
  • Without the Robot to abuse, Doctor Smith turns his aggressions on Penny’s pet, Debbie. Smith piles insults on the poor little Bloop and even smacks her hand a few times.

Radar Love

Besides Peter’s glasses there was one other thing in Robert’s office I wanted to take and I think Peter left them there to see if I would take them which I didn’t. Robert had in the main room a box roughly 1 foot cubed which was labeled Radar Love master tapes (Golden Earring).

I couldn’t imagine how Robert could get hold of these, btw check out these boys fine asses in this video. This is an unbelievable song and appeared in the film, “Baby Driver”. It is a great driving song. I asked if I could have them, he said no that they’re important and they have to go to someone. I wonder if he was being tested there too. Enjoy the song.
