I haven't been buying too much lately. Mainly because I have been so busy. But I did get a few new things. Most of it is decidedly outdated technology.
Dukes of Hazzard Record Player.
While at the Con, I met another blogger name Reis O'Brien. Reis is also known as the Lord of Dorkness and runs the blog The Lair of the Dork Lord. He left a message here on DukesCollector a week before the convention saying he would bring me a Dukes item he bet I didn't have.
When I visited his his booth, he pulled out this rip-off General Lee. He won the bet, I didn't have it.
This little beauty has opening doors, well one opening door left, and looks very much like a General. This could be the very car that I saw at a local swimming pool when I was a kid leading me to beg my mom to find me a General Lee with doors that open. She found me a orange Charger with an American flag on the roof. She was close, but I think this was the culprit.
It was made by Yatming, the same company that made the Charger America car.
Thanks Reis! It was a lot of fun meeting you and I will stay in touch. Trust me, there are a whole bunch more Dukes of Hazzard collectors out there. Not just me and you. And I hope you don't mind that I lifted this picture from your blog. I didn't have my camera at the time.
And finally I wanted to show off my collection of SDCC Exclusive Hot Wheels Knight Rider KITTs. Here we have (from left to right) my autographed David Hasselhoff KITT, the variant KARR, and the standard KITT. They sure are cool pieces. I'm so glad I was able to get all of these. The craftsmanship that went into the car and the display box really deserves recognition. Good job Mattel!
But wait a second, is that five boxes? I thought I said I only had three. What could this mean? Could DukesCollector have two extras? Hmmmm..........
