Jason Connell:

Whoa, just Welcome to Just curious media. This is let's talk Cobra Kai. I'm Jason Connell.

Sal Rodriguez:

And I'm Sal Rodriguez.

Jason Connell:

All right, so we are back for another episode.

Sal Rodriguez:

Yes, a special I say special special because a lot of our episodes are special. This is even more special than special. Very special. Very special.

Jason Connell:

Yes, because we are out of nowhere having another discussion about something. It's part two. It's the Karate Kid and Cobra Kai collectables, volume two. Yeah, no sound when we had Volume One, which was super excited. I loved the episode. It's great. It just recently came out. But I thought, well, that'd be it. We'll revisit this later. But out of nowhere, something happened today on my end and yesterday on urine, which put this in motion. So please, why don't you explain what that is?

Sal Rodriguez:

Yes, that is we had a special delivery there. See, there's more special special delivery from our friends over at icon heroes toymakers. They make a number of toys and collectibles and action figures. And for our purposes, namely, karate kid when I say that, I mean, specifically Karate Kid, because some makers will make Cobra Kai action figures. Or they'll do these hybrids. In this instance, these are specifically Karate Kid action figures. And in the past, they did Cobra Kai action figures. So these are indeed Karate Kid action figures made by icon heroes delivered for our show to us, for us to talk about and discuss and maybe have a promo code for our listeners.

Jason Connell:

Yeah, super exciting, because I'm not a toy collector as a child. And the youth, my youth, I love toys, Star Wars figures, GI Joe figures, but I beat him up and I wasn't keeping in box and all that. But I respect things. And I like collectibles, you know, different things from movies or shows. So when you told me Hey, what's your address, they're gonna send you so I was like, hey, that's kind of cool. Because yeah, we could do an unpacking, if you will. Not that we're going to do a full Toy Review, because I don't really do those. But we can talk about them, present them to our listeners audio, if the audio listeners would be as descriptive as we can be. And video you can watch along. But also because hey, I made I don't know what these are. I don't know much about these. But whatever they are, I may film something like I could do little fun things like you do and you know, helping promote the brand. Let's talk Cobra Kai and just Just curious me as a whole. So that that was really cool. So thanks for thinking of me. And, and they and they showed up because I was like, Well, I'm in Rhode Island, it's gonna take a while it just took one more day. So they were here today, just in time to do this fun unveiling. I've never done one of these on the show, or we've never done one of these on the show. So and you do this all the time, you're a pro. I mean, this is your wheelhouse, like all those toys behind you, you unpacked all of

Sal Rodriguez:

its I did. But just to be clear, though, Jason, you know, there are various ways to do an official toy revoke. One of those ways is you being on camera, the host being on camera themselves. The other way is just the toy collectible being on camera, which is actually a little easier. Because then you're just your hands, maybe you're focused on the item, you just do the narration, it's a little bit easier as far as logistics. Now you and I talking to each other to Talking Heads. Now we have to introduce the variable of a small collectible. So it gets a little interesting logistically. So we have to consider where we're going to hold these figures in relationship to the cameras, right? And in relationship to our own faces. Yeah,

Jason Connell:

and I have a small crew over here on mine. I don't know if

Sal Rodriguez:

I was standing I'll be bringing the standard and

Jason Connell:

now let's be clear, though, this is not a review. We don't need to get in the weeds are just gonna have you know, broad strokes.

Sal Rodriguez:

It's not it's not an official. Well, as I mentioned, the Jason before we started recording, the word review is open for interpretation. It's up for review we reviewed. Yeah, exactly. It's like I've seen and done reviews in every shape and form. So the fact that you and I are going to unbox an action figure and even talk about it for that review is indeed a review. Okay. Yeah, it's not believe me. I got some friends on YouTube. They review stuff for like an hour. Wow. an hour. That's a long time. Hey, that's not let's talk Cobra Kai, that we're gonna be a little more Yeah,

Jason Connell:

I didn't call this episode this unboxing although it's exciting, so I'll put it in the notes. But yeah, and last week, I've got to say the last episode, I should say. It is great. And we do broad strokes. We talked about the industry, past, present and future how it relates to the Karate Kid and Cobra Kai, you did show some collectibles. It was cool to see how oh, these have claws and these have more points of articulation and these have less and I saw a brand that I didn't really you know, I wasn't too fond of but I can't here was just one of the ones I liked as like hey, they look good. And in fact it's the one that we did our You had me do some voiceover for for a couple of videos on the cellar door Rodriguez YouTube page, but it's correct

Sal Rodriguez:

on the Salvador Los Angeles. Sorry,

Jason Connell:

what'd I say? Your other channel Yeah. Salvador Los Angeles correct Thank you.

Sal Rodriguez:

If you go to the Salvador Los Angeles YouTube channel you will see content related to Cobra Kai and karate kid you will see action figures Cobra Kai karate Kim and namely yeah I've made two short films called The Adventures of Daniel and Johnny Volume One and Volume Two Volume One had figures by neck of volume to add figures by icon heroes so now here we are today we've come full circle with more figures by icon heroes this time not Daniel and Johnny Yes, but Daniel I don't know I don't know yeah. Oh

Jason Connell:

yeah. Oh,

Sal Rodriguez:

don't you know you know

Jason Connell:

I did? Well, we don't know. Okay, without further ado, the packaging goes a long way I took it out of the box not been started to be clear the outside box not the ship not the packaging. I got it to this level. So let's show people the really nice packaging. No figures yet. So you can see pretty snazzy there Miyagi dough karate. That's the

Sal Rodriguez:

front and then the band the son in the bone side.

Jason Connell:

The Banzai trade it's the logo from the original film it's the back of the ghee and I'll spin it around ever so slowly I guess you can see that well, we'll come back the back there it is damn practicing me Miyagi and Daniel and it says I'll go ahead and read what it says for us.

Sal Rodriguez:

It says The Karate Kid Mr. Miyagi and Daniel convention exclusive now what toy make lane that they will make? Yeah, convert. I had to learn this myself. toymakers will make a version for a convention like Comic Con. So this could have been a previous exclusive OR Toy Fair. Probably not Comic Con but one of the recent because that because this is recent. Yes. So either the one to come. In fact, I wonder if it's upcoming Comic Con. I don't know if it's gonna be Comic Con. But yeah, this was a convention exclusive. Just not certain which convention Yeah,

Jason Connell:

so let's talk Cobra Kai convention. No one knows about it yet. So on the sides though, I also like this yes, there's the crane Daniel's practicing the crane on the on the beach on the pole. Says the Karate Kid once again, Mr. Miyagi and Daniel icon heroes. There's our logo really slick. Looks like a video game logo like that. And same on both sides. And so of course, there's a warning on the bottom sell. What? Not a toy. Keep that in mind. So not for persons under 10 years old. And so just FYI, there.

Sal Rodriguez:

No, wait a second. If a person is under 18 years old. Oh, you're fine. No, but that's interesting. Not for persons under 18.

Jason Connell:

I was 10. I suppose. There's a way it can be 18 interest is an

Sal Rodriguez:

18 and over toys. That sounds weird. That is very successfully. Okay, so here we go. Hang on. Hang on. Jason. There is one more warning. Since we're talking about toys hear something about toys, and particularly plastic is the fragility of it. And you have to be careful. There's even a warning here in colder climates, the plastic materials tend to tighten more than normal, causing the joints to be tighter. If you are experiencing this issue. Simply dip the heads and hands in hot water for approximately 30 seconds and the joints should loosen up, allowing you to pose the figure and interchange the heads and hands more easily. So I just want to warn everybody. I have had a lot of experience breaking figures. So please be careful out there. Anybody opening up a collectible action figure. Please be careful. Don't treat them like toys, unfortunately. And when it comes to heating, it's often recommended to use hot water. I use a hairdryer. I hit him with a hairdryer because hey, I don't need it. I don't need the hairdryer. So I hit the figures with the hairdryer and that usually warms up hopefully we don't have any problems today.

Jason Connell:

That's interesting. That toys deal with shrinkage too. So I didn't i Hey, oh. Okay, here we go. Let's bust him out. I didn't know this is gonna open up right away. So

Sal Rodriguez:

yeah, there's Velcro little Velcro things there. And that opens up the window we got I think I call it window box pack. I've

Jason Connell:

got one. Oh, I

Sal Rodriguez:

see Daniel. Daniel.

Jason Connell:

Oh my oh my god, this looks cool. Look at this, folks. Wow. It's Daniel Miyagi, with like 1000 different hands to choose from looking at 1000 I'm over exaggerating here. But this is really impressive. It says Oh, breathe in. Breathe out. And what's the right side? Say? So?

Sal Rodriguez:

Wax on. wax off. netwars

Jason Connell:

right circle. This is really amazing. How

Sal Rodriguez:

about beginner luck? Yeah, so

Jason Connell:

you see me argue there on the left Daniel on the right. Yeah, and then why don't you explain what we're looking at in the middle. I'll see if I can open mine up while you

Sal Rodriguez:

sure we have we have Miyagi in his tan shirt. We have Daniel in a similar shirt. In fact, I don't remember Daniel having a similar shirt to Miyagi. Maybe I'm forgetting because of my cinnamon Asia. But Daniel has his headband on. He has a similar shirt to Miyagi or the tan work shirt. They're both wearing pants. They're both wearing shoes and in the middle. Yep, we have a number of hands. Not only different hand positions but hands on the Sanders hands with a paintbrush up hands with chops sticks hands with sponges for washing the car. This is I believe this is indeed labeled the Miyagi LORUSSO training set like this is when dad was originally being trained by Miyagi. And by the way, I just just to be clear, we have talked about a number of collectibles on the let's talk Cobra Kai podcast at this moment in time, I've yet to see an official Daniel and Miyagi training. Action Figure Set has not existed before this very long. Yeah,

Jason Connell:

this is really impressive. So and a lot of little pieces. Maybe that's why they don't want someone to young although 18 is a bit excessive. This is like the all Valley, we should definitely make it like under five or whatever. I don't know the toy industry. And so yeah, the more you

Sal Rodriguez:

look at the toy industry, it's an interesting industry because they follow certain rules and guidelines. And I don't even know why they do it. But speaking of, Oh, I'm just pulling them out. Yeah. And I'm pulling them out.

Jason Connell:

I'm trying to get this thing off. This is why I really do need a staff. Because did you cut it? Or did you just unwind it? I took it out. I have this I have this out. So now I see all the hands all the things all the both figures?

Sal Rodriguez:

Well, Jason, I mean, I just say and I say unfortunately, figures like this adult collectible toys aren't really meant, quote, unquote, to be taken out of the packaging. Yeah, you know, the Star Wars schedule. They're like, awesome, keep it in the box course a lot of collectors are like that. A lot of adult collectors keep stuff in the box. They're called mminton, box collectors, mint on card collectors. I am not one of them. As you can see by looking behind the boxes, I have a few. I'm like an 8020 80% of my collection out of the box 20% inbox. But my point is, these are made to be kept in the box. Therefore they're hard to get out of the box. Because not only is every hand had its own little piece of plastic cradle, but the figures themselves are in there with a twisty tie that you may just have to end up cutting. I twist this by the time I

Jason Connell:

did have Daniel free. So you take out you take out Miyagi.

Sal Rodriguez:

I'll take that's a good that's a good one. I'll take out Miyagi you take out dead Yeah, exactly.

Jason Connell:

So here he is. This is a perturbed Daniel anx not happy with all the work and the chores. You know, they should all like even the toes like you could do some special kicks here. With the moveable toes. Yeah, this is really impressive. So I have not really played with or held a toy since my youth when I had my Star Wars and GI Joe but a little stiff in the joints a little stiff in the joints. This guy needs careful MSM Be careful.

Sal Rodriguez:

Yeah, he needs some blow dryer. or hot water. Okay, take your pick. Oh,

Jason Connell:

well hand fell off at the hands interchangeable.

Sal Rodriguez:

Hang on, though, did the handbrake No,

Jason Connell:

no, it just popped off.

Sal Rodriguez:

Oh, thank God really I'm telling you I've developed PTSD when it comes to these because recently on the Salvatore Los Angeles YouTube channel I've had two fingers break on me recently, the Kessler werewolf from where I took his head off to get the other head and then the neck joint broke. Right on camera. It was terrible. It was absolute terrible. So I'm like so PTSD with fingers, especially when we're recording live. I'm like, careful, careful, careful, so I won't even sometimes articulate them or even swap heads. Now there's no additional heads with this.

Jason Connell:

Yeah, I was gonna say no, comes off. So the head comes off. There's a problem.

Sal Rodriguez:

Well, if the head comes off, you hope it goes back on. Yeah, that's what you hope Exactly. While we're at it, Jason just real quick. These are the other two figures that we received by icon heroes and they were featured in The Adventures of Daniel and John Volume Two that we did the voices for. And that is of course Johnny Lawrence and Daniel Russo and I believe this could be considered their tournament look right. Would you say yeah, this was there at Trinity for all Valley. Okay, at for all valley look, Daniel and Gianni. Check out that video on my YouTube channel. So let's then compare.

Jason Connell:

Yeah, so no logo so the attire that Daniels wearing is just a beige nondescript shirt, he does have on the classic headband, because he does put it on in the movie the 10 points. But beyond that, and the great hair in the likeness this is a really good representation of a young Ralph macho Daniel LORUSSO, but beyond that, it's kind of like yeah, there's no logo there's no Miyagi dough outfit that he's he can't Don that as well because these aren't cloth these are plastic right? So you have some figures that have a cloth and probably could change outfits more easily.

Sal Rodriguez:

Yeah, as a matter of fact, I recently did take another Daniel and Johnny I was a couple years ago I took Daniel and Johnny cloth figures took off the clothes put an elf Will Ferrell elfa Johnny and put a Santa outfit on on Daniel and made them Santa and elf and that was great Christmas.

Jason Connell:

Merry Christmas.

Sal Rodriguez:

That was for a merry Christmas

Jason Connell:

every year and celebrates Merry Christmas.

Sal Rodriguez:

Well I'll tell you guys you know this has been sort of an all roads lead to this type of thing for me because I've been a toy collector for many years been doing toy videos on YouTube for many years now. Then get involved with Jason for the let's talk Cobra Kai podcast. Then they come out with a Cobra Kai figures then they come out with Karate Kid figures. So it's like the whole thing comes full circle for me. So this is definitely me. I guess I hate to say meat eking out live and in person and that's

Jason Connell:

like wherever I live I'm by some sort of location from the Karate Kid from Los Angeles to Miracle Mile to move into the Boston area by The Next Karate Kid so yeah, we both have our run and you know rough Matsuo coming to Tulsa when I was a kid making the outsiders so many parallels. So I have Miyagi free now to both nights are free and I can see so for those who can see this Daniels a little taller, maybe

Sal Rodriguez:

close we should be taller but he's not taller by much not on these

Jason Connell:

Miyagi let me get a good look at him. Looks pretty wise. Looks pretty good. Ya know, he's got his outfit on. Interesting way they do the waist. That's a high waist, you're moving up here below the chest cavity, but you're also moving out the way so it's like a lot of how many points of articulation is a sound, this is a lot.

Sal Rodriguez:

Well, if you count each one, we got the neck, we got the shoulder we got the upper arm slice, that's then 123 Then we got a double jointed elbow. That's four and five. Then we got a wrist, that's six and then times two. And then we have the 10 so that makes it 11 And then two at the waist 1213 Each one at the hip 1415 Double jointed knee 1617 1819 And then the ankle 2021 And then the the toes 2223. So I'm counting 23 but may have missed one or two, that's believable. That's more than you articulation that the fingers can articulate more than I can. That's absolutely true. And since we're here since we're here, let's just have a look at the NECA Mr. Miyagi and now the icon heroes Mr. Miyagi, I would say that the icon here is a little more flattering a little slimmer. Yep, a little bit of a slimmer look.

Jason Connell:

Yeah, well I almost think these aren't they can only go so close with this type of toy, but it's maybe more durable the points of articulation you talked about the other one you just held up definitely has more of a resemblance to Mr. Miyagi I would say yeah, yeah that one there but he might not be able to do as much I mean this

Sal Rodriguez:

well you have a bigger head when you have a bigger head you can do more you fill the frame more. That's yeah, there you go. You have a larger surface these figures by icon heroes I will say definitively would probably be the stop motion. Yes. Filmmakers choice. Yeah, in fact, I would say that the best stop motion film on YouTube made for Toy collectors for stop motion was featuring the icon heroes Daniel and Johnny are very talented stop motion artists. He did a great fight sequence. It's fantastic. So yeah, if you want to do anything stop motion, you're probably going to go icon heroes. But meanwhile, you know, the other ones are great too. But people call you know, people call these these kind of figures, adults. And a lot of toy collectors I've asked not a doll. It's an action figure. But it looks like a doll but it has closed so you know, it's all open for intermediate action figures. These are definitively in fact I would probably if somebody called the NECA Miyagi a doll I probably would not argue much but if you were to call the icon heroes figures dolls, I would probably put up an argument Yeah, I would probably would. Let's call these are definitively action figures just

Jason Connell:

because I'm not going to take all these guys out but just looking at this really quickly before we move on. So there's also the buckets that he works with. There's the paint bucket there's the Sanders as you said, is that a mop bucket? And it's tough to see what the reflection so you kind of got to angle it but you know there's a paintbrush everything both Sanders right left like you said there's a fist punching What's

Sal Rodriguez:

the thing on the on the lowest left lower left?

Jason Connell:

I thought that was one of the Sanders but I'm not ignore the Sanders are on the hill. I know. I thought that was like a loose one. I'm not exactly sure

Sal Rodriguez:

what that is. It's something I can't tell what it is. Oh, car wax, Turtle

Jason Connell:

Wax Turtle Wax. There we go. So he also has a fist. So you know, eventually he has that moment of clarity. Like Jason Bourne is like, Oh, I know all of this now, you know, wonderful moments. So I think you could go through that and you're going to see Sal, probably some good stop animation, stop motion animation on YouTube with these figures. How long have these figures been out? Is this relatively new release for icon heroes?

Sal Rodriguez:

That I do not know. I just found out about them. Within the last few weeks, I contacted icon heroes, my friend, new friend Pat Wang, as a patent remember me? Let's talk Cobra Kai membro you gave us the other figures. Remember, we met I showed him links. I wanted to refresh his memory of who we were. I didn't get that. And he's like, yeah, right away. He was like, absolutely. I go hey, you want us to have a look at the Miyagi Lusa Tupac? He said, absolutely. I said, Here's my address. Here's Jason's address. And here we go. So yeah, they've been very kind to us. This is a great set lots of accessories. This will be the choice for stop motion filmmakers. Absolutely. A wonderful rendition and homage I always like that word, homage, wonderful homage tip of the hat to LORUSSO and Miyagi and especially to our dearly departed friend. Pat Marini is a beautiful rendition and speaking

Jason Connell:

of that, because we talked about likeness on volume one, you know, no mention of their real names. on anything it's character names because they don't own it, you know, we know who they're representing or who the actors were, but no mention so I'm assuming most likely in all likelihood it's not George Lucas. We're talking about here. No royalties going down to patent Raiders family or Roth match or you just don't know you have no idea of the breakdown.

Sal Rodriguez:

I don't know how that works. I do know that licensing is a big thing in toy making. Absolutely. So it's like who owns the rights like for recently for you toy collectors out there. You know how hard it was to get a decent Bela Lugosi Dracula action Friday, because apparently the Lugosi est was like really tight they didn't want to let out the likeness and so you literally couldn't for a while get a Bela Lugosi figure recently they opened up the licensing and you get some good Bela Lugosi stuff now so similarly, who knows what it's like whoever owns the rights to the marina estate Yeah. And how that factors into His likeness as it relates to Mr. Miyagi. Because you have these things how would like the WWE, you know that those names in the WWE like Hulk Hogan, like I don't think Hulk Hogan can go around in his outfit and be Hulkamania that's like copyrighted to

Jason Connell:

go back one second. You did meet the widow of Pat Merida.

Sal Rodriguez:

I did. I did me I forgot about that. Yeah, I did. I was working at a newspaper at the time. And we would do these fictitious business name statements doing business as listings you have to put that in the newspaper or at least you did have to at one time, and she walked in, and I noticed her last name was Maria, I think you and I had already been doing the podcast already. Okay. Yeah. And I think I said to her and I wasn't expecting a yes, but I said hey, are you related to pet Marina? And I told her about the podcast she's like, absolutely. I am. I'm one of his ex wives. I guess he had maybe a couple I haven't kept track of his of his marriages but yeah, I and I researched afterwards I do I did want to prove that was indeed Pat marinas ex wife that I met Yeah,

Jason Connell:

well next time you see her ask her if she gets any kickbacks royalties on the sales of the merchandise or the

Sal Rodriguez:

assumed or the I would I would never I don't know I would know my what I mean is I would never assume that the that the state gets royalties. Do you know about the Bob Ross remember that guy that would paint half well he didn't they made merchandise. Yeah, yeah, exactly. Okay, so there's a big thing in the toy world because apparently none of the toys that have the Bob Ross likeness goes to the Bob Ross family or estate it goes to like the management company or something. So a lot of like boycotting actual boycotting of toys because like listen, I don't want to support them and all that so I hope I hope that nothing like that goes on in the Karate Kid or Cobra Kai world.

Jason Connell:

Well, let's give a shout out to my icon heroes and let's please share this wonderful gift discount code that they want to bestow upon our listeners and fans. So Sal, why don't you once you do the plug because you have the relationship with them?

Jason Connell:

Yeah, that's really really cool. Thank you icon heroes a pleasure to have this in my small but growing toy collection. And we can use these to who knows there could be some fun stop motion stills videos. I'm sure you'll come up with some insights in your wheelhouse. I just think it's cool. It was fun to come on here and talk about. I also wanted to plug one thing off. Yeah, toys and collectibles for just one second, something new on the just curious Media website. And that is on all of our shows. Now. You can go on there if you wanted to pull a quote or hear what we said or like see what we said, because sometimes it's like, oh, man, we have so many episodes now. But all of our transcripts are on the website. They're linkable. Very cool. At some point, I'm probably going to put them into the show notes. But this is a whole new thing. And our transcripts are more interactive. And Sal why don't you explain that and I'll say who they're powered by but please your interpretation because I saw you looked at him the other day and really liked him.

Sal Rodriguez:

Yeah, did you sent me a note saying Hey, check this out. And I hadn't seen it before I checked it out. And it was so cool and interesting to read our show. Exactly where you and I I was reading us. It was it was very cool. And even where there were AI errors hilarious. Yeah. Hilarious. I actually got a kick reading our stuff. So believe me, anybody out there that wants to read our stuff? Maybe people who are hearing impaired possibly want to read the shows that Yes. Hey, please everybody. I think it's a wonderful resource. And as I said to Jason before it meets the It's the intersection of cool and practical, because I like cool things that are useful. Yeah. And practical, like action figures like these things. Yeah, like dolt. Yeah. So

Jason Connell:

it is powered by otter AI, I was going to do real transcripts of every episode. And I realized, wow, it's very expensive time and deuces and we have a lot of episodes. And now I'm doing X amount of weeks. So I spent the time and did otter AI on every single transcript. And then you had to think how you're going to do this. So I linked them. And so if you go to our website, just curious media.com and go down to each show individual, it'll say transcripts, just click that button, and it takes you to a special page that I've made that houses each Show, episode by episode, they're in chronological order, but it is all the way down. You click on it, you don't just see and read us what's cool sounds, you click a button. And it also plays along. And that is such a cool fact. Wow. So you will see typos because it's about 80 85% accurate. I knew that going in, but you can click it. And they have embedded. It's not as high quality as our stuff because you know, they're processing it. And the mp3 is a little bit lower profile. But it's meant there just to be a tool. So you can read it, and you see it going along and you hear it if you want to do it. When you say Hear it. You mean hearing our show here you can hear and read at the same time. It's okay, not an

Sal Rodriguez:

AI voice. I thought you meant an AI. Oh, no, it's us.

Sorry. It's us. And it's really cool. I like that angle. And it's like, you know what, that's cool. And if there was a real bad typo, which really neat, I can go in there and correct it. Or if I play a video or clip, it gets confused. So I have to go there and say no, that's media. That's not us. But you can go in there, I can make a change in the link stays the same. So I really liked the flexibility. Like you said practical mates. What was it cool? Yeah, it is cool. It's hip. It's cool. So every one of our shows has that it's kind of like a blog. And so even for us, it's like oh man, did I say that in season four, episode three? Well, I'd have to scrub the whole you know, actual file to maybe find it well now you and I can be like oh no, we can pull quotes from ourselves or the other shows let's talk movies. That's a crime Doggone it helps with SEO and thanks so I just think it's neat. Anybody wants to quote us or pool something go there go to just curious media.com Go down to transcripts. And also if you're on YouTube Live click the closed caption button and it's automatically you know, creates closed caption which I also love I've kind of gotten used to watching things online you like and seeing it and it can be really cool if it's integrated nicely so kudos there a lot of fun had to do that blog. And that's really all I got. So it was a lot of fun having yet another The Karate Kid and Cobra Kai collectibles, Volume Two tons of fun and thank you again to let me hold them up. Icon heroes.
