Magnum Madness Thursdays on Cozi TV!
2/28/2014 - Longtime Magnum Mania! forum member ConchRepublican (aka Peter Fleming) has done several great Magnum P.I. promos for Cozi TV. Last year he did the 'Ultimate Fan of Magnum P.I.' spots. Well, this year kicks off with 'Magnum Madness Thursdays'! Throughout the month of March, sixteen episodes of Magnum will air (four each Thursday) with viewers having the ability to vote for their favorite in each bracket. The Fan Favorite winner will then air during the Magnum marathon on April 6th. The sixteen episodes were hand-picked by Peter Fleming (his "sweet sixteen"). You can catch the promo he did for 'Magnum Madness Thursdays' here. Watch Cozi TV for more! Great job Peter!
Robin's Nest for sale!
1/23/2014 - The Anderson Estate (also known as "Pahonu"), the real life setting for Magnum P.I.'s Robin's Nest, has gone on the market (41-505 Kalanianaole Hwy, Waimanalo, HI 96795). The 3-acre oceanfront property, with its beautiful 11,000 sq. ft. Spanish Colonial Revival main house designed by Louis E. Davis (built in 1933), has a list price of $15,750,000 (Sotheby's International Realty)! The assessed value of the property is around $8,000,000 and Zillow estimates it to be worth roughly $9,000,000.

Renovate and restore, please!

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.
