We've had 100's iof visitors since it's completion last year. And I'm buried in requests from people that re trying to make it out to our place in 2009

Les, is the museum safe? I've seen on the news that you guys have some flooding in your area.

Still monitoring the situation. The river is normally hundreds of feet from the museum building. It is currently approx. 12 feet away. But we've seen it there before so it's not unusual.

Thanks for the concern... we'll keep folks posted as the thaw continues.

Puzzles from Europe

Today brought the arrival of the 3 puzzles we were missing from Europe.

Manufactured by Ravensburger they produced 4 puzzles in total. The 3 that arrived today (we've had the 4th one for a while now) are the 60, 100 and 500 piece puzzles.

KOTCS prototype DVD display

Here is a picture of the proposed walk-through arch display that would have been used at Wal-Mart. It was canceled in favor of something more conservative.

That Wal-mart DVD display is very cool. Too bad it's just a prototype. Would be cool to have a full size one.

If you mean the prototype in the picture - yes. I took the picture in the museum just after I unpacked it. It was never made full size.

30+ new items enter Ravenwood

Friday (April 3rd) was a great day - we received 6 large boxes of new items. Everything from charms and bracelets (from Japan) to books (from Spain, France and Germany) to shirts, toys, towels, caps, lunch bags, back packs, etc.

And of course our new 1/8" scale replica of the Disney "Temple of the Forbidden Eye" arrived -- and it is FANTASTIC!!

Here's a photo I took after I laid out all the goodies on the floor for sorting --

Unreleased popcorn bowls

Popcorn bowls that were created by the company responsible for Orville Redenbacher and Act II popcorn brands. Each is about 9" in diameter and dishwasher-safe plastic.

Les, do you have a photo of this model? I'd be intersted in seeing it.

I haven't touched my paper model of the Temple of the Forbidden Eye for a few months, but I think I'll get back into it this week. Currently, I think it is about a third finished.

How good is the Indiana Jones Pinball?

I'm thinking of picking one up - would be my first pinball. Looks cool.

I've had it in my basement for 8 years. I still play it. It's a fantastic machine-not just because it's Indy.

Make sure it's the one made by Williams -- and not the new Stern one. I've had the Williams for 7 years and still love it. I tried the new Stern one at the local cinema -- and it is terrible. Poor play field, cheap models ... and it breaks a lot (according to the Manager of the cinema). The game play was poor overall.

The Williams pinball is fun! I played it at a local arcade for a good couple of hours. I would eventually like to get one when funds and space allow.

I hope this isn't the Ravenwood Museum, sitting out there in the middle of a big lake:

Enjoy!!

Can you post the ISBNs for each? That would make it a lot easier to track them down. Thanks.

I'm not against Manga or anime in general, but it just doesnt work for this.


But yeah, I can understand your distaste for it.
