Our Fan of the Week, LUKE HARRIS, met Mr. Lobo through the owner of Toy Fusion at a local comic show several years ago. Toy Fusion wanted to surprise Mr. Lobo with a prototype action figure as a Christmas Gift. After Mr. Lobo and Luke were introduced–They devised some toy ideas resulting in Sir Harris taking various discontinued vintage toy lines and making bootleg figures where he replaced their heads with customized ones to resemble Mr. Lobo. These evolved from the CINEMA INSOMNIA SLIME LINE “Mini-Distraction Figures” molded in clear green to fleshy colored parodies of M.U.S.C.L.E. figures from the 80′s called M.I.S.T.E.R.S. (Many Individual Super Tough Entertaining Rubber Strangers).
Luke also made a one-off “Blockhead Mr. Lobo” and other INSOMNIAC friendly designs that the TV host is proud to own. Since the beginning Luke and his family have enjoyed watching CINEMA INSOMNIA DVDs and would pick them up at collectables shows,
“CINEMA INSOMNIA plays the type of movies I enjoy, and I love the vintage ads, and whole approach to the show,” he explained enthusiastically and continued, “What I enjoy about the show is the way Mr. Lobo works to keep vintage cinema entertaining and fresh for new generation.”
While working for another comic related show in at the Scottish Rite Center in Sacramento, his wife brought his children to the venue and met Mr. Lobo. Sir Harris’ children were “star struck” to see someone they have watched on their television screen “come to life.”
In his free time, he continues to create and make his independent toys for his side business IMPERFECZ TOYS. He has also recently purchased a ROKU box and is tuning into past and current episodes CINEMA INSOMNIA and continues to enjoy them over and over.
CINEMA INSOMNIA recently used the ZOMBIE LOBO figure from Luke’s M.I.S.T.E.R.S. line for the “COVER” icon for the CINEMA INSOMNIA episode featuring MIDGET ZOMBIE TAKEOVER on ZOM-BEE TV.
