Steven Spielberg Film - INDIANA JONES - Kingdom of The Crystal Skull

Playing in all of West Virginia now.

At a recent Blenko Collectors event - I discovered several other collectors (30+ in age) were fans of Action Film and Comic Books. A Texas couple frequently dines with Chewbacca !

What's the connection between Collecting BLENKO and Action Films?

Could it be a love of quality, adventure, a desire to learn, a sense of the pride in the past and hope for the future?

My all time favorite 'adventure/ action figure is Harrison Ford.
Harrison Ford - Indiana Jones

Harrison Ford returns to the role of Indiana Jones in his latest adventure after having embodied the iconic archaeologist adventurer in the legendary series that began with the blockbuster "Raiders of the Lost Ark" and continues through " Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" and "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade".

The Indiana Jones series and as a cocky rebel star ship pilot Han Solo in the original "Star Wars"trilogy (did I tell you I have a life size cardboard image of Hans in the 3rd floor bedroom of my parents home) . .Ford came to embody the quintessential American hero for moviegoers (women young and older) around the world. His body of work encompasses over 40 feature films- 11 of which have exceeded $100 million at the box office - such films as "the Fugitive", "Air Force One" and "Patriot Games."
An Oscar and Golden Glove nominee for best Actor in Witness, Sabrina, the Fugitive and The Mosquito Coast. He was named "Sexiest Man Alive" by People Magazine in 1998.

We don't know that Harrison Ford collects BLENKO GLASS, but it seems possible given his keen sense of style - - a Fedora Hat, Leather Jacket in the jungle, . . .seems like a BLENKO man.

The Item pictured is available for purchase at BLENKO GLASS - it was made using recycled BLENKO GLASS. (304 743 9081) or ask for Rodney Wade, or Diana to learn more.

Phone Blenko 743 9081 and ask Diane the cost.
I do not have this item, should I choose to own one, I'll arrange to purchase from Blenko.
Good Luck with your shopping.
