“We’re movin’ out..!”

It was about a couple of  years ago today that i decided to give this whole Blog thing a try.I had already been a fan of  sites  like  “Revenge from the Cosmic Ark” and Reis’s  “Hey,Look At My Toys!” http://dorkhorde.blogspot.com/.Great blogger’s like Debs from http://www.vintageactionfigures.net/  ,jboypacman from the http://theclawfulpunch.blogspot.com/   and Colin of  http://super-dupertoybox.blogspot.com/  “Super Duper Toy Box”  fame were among the first to comment on Action Figs and Things.These guys not only inspired me,but kindly accepted me into their blogosphere and for that i consider them to be not only a support group of sorts ,but also my friends.Thank you!Since then my circle of  fellow bloggers has grown and more friendships have formed as a result.Ya gotta love Hobby over at http://monstercafesaltillo.blogspot.com/  …so controversial though 😉 Jdub over at http://jessewg.blogspot.com/  “Metal Borgs”…where have you been?!?.Buzzchuck(Kevin) from http://actionfigureadventures.blogspot.com/  whom i honestly believe owns every action figure ever created in the 80’s!Dan over at  http://plasticmayhem.blogspot.com/  who when you least expect it,drops in on you with a comical ,chuckle inducing comment 😉 Love his video game posts,too.Chris still has the most http://ridiculouslyawesome.wordpress.com/  comic collection and also has the distinction of being the first WordPress blogger i ever reached out to. http://figurefanzero.com/   has some of the most awesome reads this side of the blogosphere and http://combollectoractionfigurerev.blogspot.com/   pics are priceless!Oh,can’t forget  http://jasonvorhees2.wordpress.com/  for aiding me in my quest to finally obtain a vintage Thundercats figure(Panthro) among other cool things via trade!And it all started here.In this home from where i am typing this up as we speak.Solitarily sitting on an adjustable,rolling office chair in front of an old Dell computer with my family in the distance giving me all of their support,albeit in their own  special way.They,especially,have had my back throughout all of this ,knowing how much this hobby means to me.And while i’m sure there where instances where they thought to themselves “Man,what the heck does my 36 year old dad see in those little plastic action  figures?!?”,sparingly,not once did they make it evident.My family truly is heroic!Tomorrow will be our last day here,and until we can get  established in our new home ,posts will be few and far between.I find it funny though, how my very first blog post was about my Secret Wars Captain America figure and my final(well until i’m fully moved into the other place)post before i move will also be about a Captain America action figure. I didn’t even intend for it to be that way,it just happened.So as my family and i bid farewell to what has been our “humble abode”,I leave you with The Avengers “Shield Launcher” Captain America!This one’s quickly becoming a personal favorite of mine!Enjoy the pics and i’ll see ya on da flipside!

  1. Always a fan of yours Tony and go luck on your move to a new home and we will be waiting for your return so hopefully it won’t take too long. God Bless and Safe Travels my friend. : )

  2. Thanks for the shout-out! Best of luck getting settled in your new digs! I love that Cap figure too. People may scoff at his shield launcher, but only until he shoots them in the face with it.

  3. Wow. I hope to join you someday as well. Getting a new home that is. Tired of Mexico a bit. Want to be back in the states. Thanks for suggesting I get started in this blog thing. You were the inspiration. This August will be one year since I started. This blogosphere is a little family. I also post my blog at the wrestingfigs forums and get over 100 hits whenever I post a new custom but YOU guys are the only ones who comment. I am thankful for that. Chow buddy!

  4. What I like about the AF&T blog is that it renders variety on all kinds of toys and action figures regardless of size and quality that can actually entertain anyone who visits. Congratulations on your new home… and probably your new collector’s room!

  5. Very nice figure man, only saw him once here. I always enjoy your blog and hope you get settled into your new home soon to get back to regular posting.

  6. I gotta make this quick as I’m currently computer less and using my daughters IPad to get some replies in.She’ll drop kick kick me if I don’t hurry up and type this.Thanks to Buzz,Orni,Combo and Chris for the extremely kind comments!I’ll definitely have pics up of the new toy room once I get settled in so stay t uned guys!

  7. Hey my friend, good to hear that you are moving to a new home and I wish you the best! Do not take too long because I have been back online lol… I had a baby girl, her name is Kaylee. Had to enormously cut back on spending and get a routine down for my family. I am back though 🙂 Talk to you soon my friend.
