Christmas came late

Since my initial Christmas Haul post I received two more really cool presents. First up is a carded Battle Corps Roadblock from the tail end of the original 3 3/4" GI Joe toy line. The Battle Corps figures all had really nice sculpts, but their cookie cutter accessories and bright paint apps kind of sucked. Roadblock was a gift from one of my toy collecting buddies, Mike.

The other present I received was a hand decorated mug featuring Batman. One of my former students who's become a good friend made this form me. She used sharpie markers to draw Batman on the plain white mug. It's pretty awesome.


  1. I just did this over the break with my kids!We sharpied a bunch of plain white mugs just like the one you got :) My artwork is nowhere near as nice as whoever drew that Batman for you,though.

    1. Awesome. Any idea what I could do to make it more permanent? I'm a little worried it might wash off over time.

    2. Bake for 30 min. at 350 Buzz.I would keep an eye on it though so you don't burn the mug In any way,although I think ceramic won't burn.IDK,but i did read that you have to bake at 350 for 30 min. :)
