My Weekly Spock: All I Want for Christmas Is…

…something with Spock!   Here’s some fun merchandise I’ve found around the ‘net.  (old and new)

Art and Collage poster from the 70s

Spock Socks!

Wallet… or is that a Spollet?

Prototype of Spock bust that unfortunately never produced.

Chubby Blue-Eyed Spock with Mickey Ears????? Nope!

Spock Mug! (or is it a Spug?)

I have no idea. Cupcake??

Clever Spock Mug, but that would be hard to hold!

 

Terribly cute Spock and Tribbles figure!

My Weekly Spock: Mr. Mosaic

I had featured a picture similar to this one back in 2013, but here’s a different picture from the same shoot that I’ve never seen!   Someday I’ll find that mosaic if it still exists and get a selfie! Anyone knows if it still exists?

And a reminder, if you’re looking for a fun tee shirt or housewares item, check out my Tee Public page HERE.

My Weekly Spock: Friendship

This week in America is Thanksgiving, and I’m sure Leonard was thankful for all the friendships in his life. Yeah, I know that his relationship with Shatner soured at the end, but you cannot deny that they were very close.  He loved his all his Star Trek friends, especially  De Kelley, and I’m happy that he found a family in  his cast-mates. ❤  Be sure to check the funny captioned photo below where Leonard doesn’t quite help De do the Vulcan salute!

My Weekly Spock: Spock the Plumber! (Rare image)

Hey Kids,

I came across this great publicity pic of Leonard that I have never seen before.  Dated March 18, 1968 the caption reads:

“Leonard Nimoy…a pointy eared newcomer to our screens.”

This is from a New Zealand TV guide, and it appears that New Zealand got Trek a good two years before neighboring Australia – lucky them!  I’m guessing this was taken the same time as the famous ‘Spock holding Enterprise‘ images, but this looks like his ‘lab’ is more set for a plumbing job!

Be sure to check back every Monday for a new Weekly Spock, and be sure to check out the archives for hundred’s more!   Have a great week!

 

My Weekly Spock: Gentle Smile.

I recently purchased this beautiful photo of Leonard on eBay, and I just love it.  He’s not posing or smiling with a fan or group, just signing a autograph.  But you can see the gentle joy in his face and just a hint of a smile as he signs. I’ve seen other pictures of this particular event and it looks like he was really enjoying himself here, but there’s something about this image that just has quiet dignity to it..  He really cared for his fans and never took them for granted.  Weren’t we lucky?  Photo by Peter Warrack.

And by the way, if anyone knows where and when this was taken, please comment below.  I”m guessing it was during his Vincent tour.

My Weekly Spock: I Wonder…

I wonder where Leonard was when this funny one was taken!  No doubt in the  ’70s and a local channel was airing In Search Of… It must be odd to see a huge head of yourself in public, but looks like Leonard enjoyed it!

How many here watched In Search Of… back in the day or since.  Do you think it aged well?  I”m looking forward to the new reboot of the show with (appropriately) Zachary Quinto  as host!   I’m sure Leonard would approve!

My Weekly Spock -Evil Spock on Spring Break!

Hey, even bad guys need a day off!  I had fun manipulating this candid picture of Leonard during his run as King Arthur in Camelot (1973) into a relaxed Mirror Spock!  Maybe he’s off picnicking with evil Nurse Chapel... 🙂
