The LXB Speaks | Hollywood Treasures

While I talked about how cool it would be to have Tarzan's treehouse in my backyard, the rest of the League of Extraordinary Bloggers chimed in with equally cool memorabilia they'd want from their favorite movies and TV shows. You can get the whole rundown on Cool and Collected, but there were a few that had me envious of their imaginary loot, starting with Brian's life-size gorilla soldier from Planet of the Apes.

Tupa's Treasures' pirate ship from Goonies is another great idea, and so is The Lair of the Dork Horde's car collection (though I'd want the original KITT in there as well). I'd also love to have Revenge from the Cosmic Ark's Godzilla costume and animatronic King Kong.

But more than any of that awesome stuff, my heart jumped in joyful recognition at Flashlights are Something to Eat's mention of Mr. Rogers' trolley. I never would have thought of that and it's a perfect choice. I loved Mister Rogers' Neighborhood as a kid and always looked forward to the trolley's whisking us away to new adventures in the owl, platypus, and purple panda-filled Neighborhood of Make Believe.

Michael , I read and visit several different blogs...several. I may not always chime in on yours but I visit regularly. You are the best in the business. You have a way with wordage and verbage. Know what I want in my living room? Rob Zombies wax Karloff as looks like Tuessaudes. But my wife'd never let that I'd better become a millionaire really soon..this way she can have her own wing.

I've already written about it in length, but I really want the semi-truck they used for the Highwayman show. Sadly I didn't have the money when it went to auction.

Mike, that made my day. Thanks so much! What do wives have against big, scary monsters in the house anyway? Sigh. :)

Ken, that sounds awesome. I could get the Green Goblin truck from Maximum Overdrive and we could race!

I'll drive B.J. McKay's truck and we can do a rally!

I'm kicking myself for not thinking of a truck that comes with a chimpanzee.
