The Thirteenth Hour Podcast #323 and Like a Hood Ornament #39: Toymaking Updates, Watching the Rocketeer Cartoon Episode 18, and Reading The Howard the Duck Movie Novelization Part 10

This past week, I have been waiting for some new resin to arrive for the Logan and Aurora Kenner style figures.  In the meantime, I have been working on these Lego Rocketeer minifigures to be donated to charity auctions. Here’s what I’ve got so far:


The packs and helmets are being resin cast.  As I mentioned in the episode, I think I will use magnets to attach the rocketpacks, at least the ones not intended for kids.  (Rare earth magnets and small children are a bad combo).  

We’re also watching the next episode of the Rocketeer cartoon (number 18) …  Some screenshots:

… and readung the next section of the Howard the Duck from the movie novelization.


The author added this especially humorous segment:





There are now Thirteenth Hour toys!  If you’d like to pick up one of these glow in the dark figures for yourself, feel free to email me or go to the Etsy store I set up ( and get them there.

If the past few months have got you needing a break, you may want to chill out to this 80s synth throwback track for a upcoming LP with the accompanying music video:

Empty Hands, the synth EP soundtrack to the novella, Empty Hands, is now out for streaming on Bandcamp.
