Larry Manetti makes second appearance on Hawaii Five-O
11/23/2013 - Larry Manetti made a second appearance as nightclub owner Nicky "The Kid" Demarco on Hawaii Five-O last night (episode "Ha'uoli La Ho'omoaika'i"). He appears briefly at the beginning and end of the episode. Magnum alum Carol Burnett also guest starred. She does a wonderful rendition of "I Got the Sun in the Morning" (from Annie Get Your Gun) in the final scene. Don't forget to visit Larry's website if you havn't already. The Aloha Magnum book and Magnum crew jackets and baseball hats are available for purchase.
Lego Magnum P.I.!
9/25/2013 - A Lego Magnum P.I. concept project has been created on the Lego community site Lego Cuusoo. Lego Cuusoo is a website which "allows users to submit ideas for Lego products to be turned into potential sets available commercially". This great concept was created by F. Szoke (aka legorevival) who does a wonderful job of highlighting what a real Lego Magnum P.I. set might look like, complete with custom Magnum/Higgins/T.C./Rick minifigures, the "Lads", the Ferrari 308 GTS, Higgins's Audi 5000, and T.C.'s Island Hoppers chopper and vanagon. If you like the project, please take a minute and click the 'Support' button on the Cuusoo site. If it is supported by enough people it might come out as an actual Lego set (it happened with the Back to the Future set, so why not Magnum). Either way, it's great to see the worlds of Lego and Magnum P.I. come together.
