I flew out to L.A. the weekend of Sept 29 through October 1st, 2006, and saw some famed L.A. sights, Hollywood Boulevard, rode in the Hollywood hills and around Mulholland Drive, drove along the Pacific Coast Highway, went to the famous Chinese Theatre. Famous stuff was everywhere.
 
But none of it was as amazing as the entire day spent at Bob and Kathy Burns home, in that famous basement.
I even was lucky enough to have contributed two original 12" custom figures to Bob's collection, The SPY SMASHER and THE PURPLE MONSTER. Look for details on each of them below.
 
But first, let me introduce you to
KONG!
The Eighth Wonder of the World!
