G.I. Joe 1992 Ninja Force-Scarlett

Sorry for the lack of posts.I’v been kind of down lately and actually starting to annoy myself with these toy posts if that makes any sense.Maybe the rolling rock that was toy collecting is beginning to loose it’s momentum.Who knows.I will however go over some of the cool items that I’ve acquired via trade from fellow bloggers John over at The Clawful Punch and Buzz from Action Figure Adventures.This figure came over from jboypacman’s “clawful” of cool ass figures!I gotta tell ya i’m digging this version of Scarlett more than I thought I would.Initially this was going to be given to my daughter who absolutely loved Scarlett in the ROC film,but apparently the green and yellow get up didn’t appeal to her.She’s a purist,what can I say.So Ninja Force Scarlett ,which btw is so friggin’ cool to say,sits in a baggie with the rest of my Joe stash awaiting proper display 😉 YOJOE MO’FO!

UPDATE! ToyBiz Iceman MOC!

I was finally able to snag one up and while the card itself is a little dinged up,the figure is in mint condition!I’ve since taken him out of the packaging so expect some comparison pics of this and the old Iceman I picked up a while ago.I’m usually not that picky about the condition of my action figures but the translucency of this figure is where all the appeal is at, so I had to have a crispy clean/clear one to add to my collection of 90’s ToyBiz  figures.Tomorrow morning i’ll have an all new ToyBiz figure up and published while most of the upcoming week will showcase the rest of what Buzzchuck over at Action Figure Adventures sent me 😉

1992 Marvel ToyBiz – Iceman

I wish I would have gotten this figure MOC.Instead I picked it up used/loose for a couple bucks and essentially got what I paid for.I still love the heck out of this figure despite the fact that whoever owned it before me stuck him inside of the freezer one too many times,causing the translucency of the figure to cloud up a bit.Either that or the figure just lost it’s luster over time,not 100% sure.He still looks great on display and will serve it’s purpose until I can get my hands on a MOC.

1992 Toy Biz X-Force-Warpath

Needless to say X-Men was a personal favorite of mine along with the Wolverine spin-offs  back in my comic book collecting days ,and then there was X-Force!X-Force made a small impact on me as a kid and shortly after picking up a few copies I would ultimately give comic book collecting the boot and move on to gaming.This had nothing to do with the quality of the X-Force stuff that was coming out, and while the art in them was a little off (Shatterstars hands looked funny as heck when holding his swords) the overall idea and characters were great.Warpath was one of my favorites and while I never knew much about him or his backstory,he was still a powerful and bad a#$ looking character .After Toy Biz released their line of   Marvel Super Heroes and X-Men figures,the first wave of X-Force figures would surface.Much like the previous X-Men figures,the X-Force line would get similar treatment in the sculpt department and individualized gimmicks as well.These figures weren’t the most aesthetically pleasing,but warranted a second look especially if you were a fan of  X-Force.My Warpath figure has similarties to the Thundercats line of figures as far as articulation goes.The knees don’t bend and neither do  his arms to facilitate his thunder punch action.He also comes with a red blaster which didn’t come with the loose version I picked up.What I love most about these figures are their vibrant colors, superb glossy paint apps and heavy duty plastic that brings me back to a time when toys were simple yet effective enough to keep us entertained for hours at a time in our rooms and living room floors as kids.I won’t go after every wave 1  X-Force figure but will most definitely pick up a Cable and Shatterstar at some point.
