    Default I got my Vindicator Mini Bust!

    Yup, I picked it up today. I'm so happy with it! I had to go strait to work shortly after getting it, so he came with me. When I ran out of White rum, I couldn't resist having him hold the place for me

    Here's the text from the outside of the box:

    "Vindicator Then & Now

    In February of 1978, the uncanny X-Men first encountered a Canadian super-hero named Weapon Alpha. Yet one of the X-Men--fellow Canadian Wolverine--already knew this high-tech warrior. He was Dr. James MacDonald Hudson, creator of a technologically enhanced battlesuit intended for geological exploration, recruited into missions for his government's shadowy Department H. Redubbed the VindicatorTM, Hudson became the leader of the Canadian superteam known as Alpha Flight.

    Vindicator'sTM cybernetic uniform commands a wealth of astonishing capabilities, including Mach-1 flight, amplified strength, force-field projection, computer interfacing, and concussive firepower. Ultimately taking the name of Guardian, Hudson was presumed dead by his fellow members of Alpha Flight until reemerging, his battlesuit now biologically integrated into his very flesh."

    To the right of this text are the covers from AF #17 and the AF Special #4.

    Looks cool, but pretty small. However, I still wouldn't mind one for myself though

    that pic does make it look a little smaller than it really is. The bottles are the bar-sized 1.5L ones, not the regulare 750ml bottles. It is over 6" tall.

    Mine is numbered 1269! Here is a listing of events occurring in the year 1269 as reckoned in the common calendar:

    June 19 - King Louis IX of France orders all Jews found in public without an identifying yellow badge to be fined ten livres of silver.

    Pélerin de Maricourt first describes magnetic poles and remarks on the nonexistence of isolated magnetic poles.

    King Otakar II of Bohemia inherits Carinthia and part of Carniola, making him the most powerful prince within the Holy Roman Empire; the empire lacking an emperor during the ongoing great interregnum, Otakar II was one of the most powerful man in Europe.

    The construction of Blair Castle in Scotland is begun by John Comyn.

    The Almohad dynasty of caliphs (not universally accepted) that once ruled most of North Africa and Al-Andalus (Moorish Spain) was extinguished when Idris II was murdered in the dynasty's last remaining possession, Marrakesh.

    The Berber Merinid dynasty completes the conquest of Morocco, replacing the Almohad dynasty which it defeated in Marrakesh.

    The Eastern Orthodox Patriarchy of Antioch returns to Antioch after a 171-year exile, during which it had been replaced by the Latin Patriarch of Antioch.

    Births
    Huang Gongwang, Chinese painter (d. 1354)

    Deaths
    John de Balliol, father of John Balliol, King of Scotland.


    Wow! You learn something new every day. Unfortunately, no Alpha Flight connection in any of those events. Oh, well.

    The 4-issue mini was a reprint of issues 97-100, so that would be #100.
