in one of my breaks from work the other day, i jumped over to ebay to see what i might see. i've picked up a few very nice items recently--that two-issue captain america special edition set from 1984 reprinting the sterenko issues, a beat up copy of a book that i cherished in high school, roger dean's views (dean was the album cover artist for yes), a couple long lost cd's, and a pantload of dvd's; the mothman prophesies (though i'd like to see them film the actual book, the movie was eerie--and has the best jump scene of the past ten years...!), robot chicken season one, and, 'cause leaf gave it such a nice write up over on his blog, the zombies can be pets film, fido.
of course, as i am wont to do, i searched chupacabra and saw this way cool, one of a kind, chupacabra model/figure and thought i'd post the cool photos. and here's the item description too.
i guess that's okay...right?
