The Clawful Sure Packs A Punch!

A package, from a trade I made with John from the Clawful Punch,arrived today! I’m super stoked about the Quick Kick and Crystal Ball figures as they were a part of my collection as a kid. Nice to have them back! The Perseus figure had been on my want list for a while now so I can finally scratch him off. I’ll be doing individual posts as soon as I get a little extra time. Thanks again John!

Jboypacman Trade Acquisition

I got this little fellow from jboypacman in a trade we completed a little while back. love the color scheme on Med-Alert but most of all,I love the fact that he’s packing heat! Most Joes in the medical field are pacifists but such is not the case with Med-Alert.My man is ready to let off at the drop of a dime,but don’t worry.Med-Alert’ll put one in you,and then patch it up afterwards.No hard feelings.

Trade With Kevin(BuzzChuck)!

I’ve been a little busy these last couple of days so I haven’t been able to post about this cool package I  acquired via trade with Kevin over at Action Figure Adventures.I’ve been wanting to add some kind of vintage Star Wars to the collection and thanks to  Kevin I now have 3 to start me off.The Tusken Raider is one of my favorite vintage SW action figures and i’m soo glad Buzz decided to include him in the package.With all the contemporary stuff getting most of the spotlight around here lately,it’s nice to get some throwback vintage action!Thanks again Kev!

Trade With Jboypacman!

Before I get started ,i’d like to apologize for the inconsistent backgrounds.AF&T is having a bit of an identity crisis with pics coming from my  bedroom(which by the way has an awful lavender paintjob that we’ll be painting over) and from my dining room table top.Change is imminent.Back to the subject matter.I recently completed a trade with The Clawful Punch’s headman John(jboypacman) and acquired some Joe goodness!Not pictured are the file cards and extra accessories john was nice enough to add to an already epic box-o-goodies!Good looking out jboy;)

If anybody’s ever received a package from jboy,then this cool little card may look very familiar to you.John is a class act and makes sure to always include a hand written letter with every box of goodies.I can appreciate that.

Recent Acquisition #4-G.I. Joe Combat Heroes-Snake Eyes/Timber/Zartan

This was one of the centerpieces included in the trade i recently made with Jason Vorhees.Combat Heroes.I told myself a long time ago that i would never collect any of these cool little figures because of  the overall collectability of them.There were just so many of these on store pegs everywhere,i was afraid they would take my focus off of  more important pieces needed to fill out my collection. If that makes any sense.Long story short…being the Snake Eyes collector that i am,naturally i was going to  ask  Jason if he had anything Snake Eyes related to add to the mix, and   he quickly sent me a picture of these little guys!Now normally i wouldn’t have gone for these Combat Heroes figures but this was Snake Eyes…and Timber…and Zartan we were talking about here!Needless to say i accepted the offer and now i own 3 Combat Heroes  🙂 I wanted this set mainly because of  Snake Eyes and Timber and thought they would be a unique pair to add to my small yet growing collection of Snake Eyes figures.It turns out that the Zartan figure is just as cool!His vest is made of  a translucent blue plastic that looks great when light shines through it.The pics i took demonstarting that are a little blurry because i took them without the flash.

Recent Acquisition #3 -’91 G.I. Joe-Bushido

I was extremely happy to see this in the package Jason Vorhees sent me because it was a Joe!Any day you’re able to add a new Joe to the collection is a good day.I remember seeing this figure first on the Arc and really liking it.The 90’s Joe line featured  lots of martial art/Ninja characters and Bushido here is one of them.I got this one loose without accessories but still dig  the heck out of it.I quickly jumped on YOJOE.com to get some info on this guy and it turns out that he’s a “Snow” Ninja from Queens,NY.I think “Arctic” Ninja would have sounded better but “Snow”Ninja will do.How cool is it that he’s from Queens,NY!I can picture this guy high atop a snow covered apartment building in the middle of winter ready to pounce!He kind of comes off as a Marvel character with somewhat of an Iron Fist vibe to em’.Check out the Chuck Taylors in the last pic!”Kiss my cons!”  😉

Recent Acquisition-1990 Ghostbusters-Winston Zeddmore

I recently acquired a few new figures in a trade with  Jason Vorhees  over at http://jasonvorhees.wordpress.com/  and throughout the week i’ll be posting about them.I’ll start things off with this Winston Zeddmore figure  from the -Slimed Heroes- line of  Kenner’s Ghostbusters figures released in 1990. I’ve been wanting to add some Ghostbusters to my collection,particularly from the first wave of figures released in the mid to  late 80’s,so i was pretty excited about finding this in the package Jason  sent me.While not an 80’s release,it’s still an awesome representation of Zeddmore.I’ll be on the look out for a replacement backpack and i’m assuming ones from the 80’s figures can fit on this figure as well.Now i’ll have to hunt down Venkman,Spengler and Stantz to complete the team.A big shout out to Jason for this and the rest of the figures i’ll be showing over the course of this week.
