Buzzchuck package arrived today! I didn’t even know he was sending one until I checked back on a post I commented on and he gave me instructions to keep an eye on my mailbox! Judging by the artwork on the lower left corner, I’m assuming maybe SW’s? Kevin you didn’t have to,ya did anyways and I thank you! Good looking out, buddy 😉
Leave it up to Buzzchuck to send over some carded awesomeness and vintage Star Wars goodness!I can’t wait to rip these babies open to get some pics of Lady Deathstrike and Wolverine going at it!You’ve made my weekend ,Kev,with this surprise package.BTW-This particular Lando figure I had as a kid in Puerto Rico,so i’m feeling all types of nostalgic right now 😉 Thanks Man 🙂
I acquired this figure from Buzz over at Action Figure Adventures via trade and i’m diggin’ it.This guy fits right in with the rest of my Toybiz figures although I like to display him without the Ninja gear.It’s a little redundant for Wolverine to weild any weapons imo but I do like the sword.Also,i’ve recently won a whopping 11 Toybiz figs on Ebay for 5 bucks total,shipped!That is a whopping deal for me!It’s fun to say/write whopping.Stay tuned for that 😉
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!
I’d like to start this post off by wishing every toy collecting dad as well as non-collecting ones,a very Happy Fathers Day!A Happy Fathers Day also goes out to the unsung heroic uncles out there that go out of their way to spoil their nieces and nephews as well as provide that much needed additional support they may need throughout their childhood.I mean,who else is gonna put them up on the action figure scoop ;)Today we have a much needed addition to the collection and one that helps me bolster my movie based Avengers team.All i need now is Hawkeye and Black Widow.I might have to snag up a more movie appropriate Iron Man as well,but this cool version sent over to me a while back by my buddy Buzz over at Action Figure Adventures,should be more than a suitable place holder i think. As far as the Thor figure goes,i like it.Don’t love it,but i like it.I would have liked for him to have a cape… but i won’t complain,even though i just did.The paint on this figure really stands out and the fact that he comes with the standard Mjolnir hammer is a plus.He also has an articulated neck,allowing him to look up and down,which i thought was pretty cool.Not a bad figure overall.I recommend 😉
I spent close to a month dipping in and out of my local Dollar General in search of these elusive little suckers only to be let down with each visit.I was starting to feel like one of those Bigfoot field researchers who traverse the forests of Kentucky only to be disappointed with their findings,or lack there of. I certainly wasn’t about to start doing a Bigfoot like Hasbro G.I. Joe call in the middle of the toy aisle because frankly that would have freaked out the nice people working and shopping at Dollar General,so my hunt for the exclusive Joe figures would ultimately come to an end.Enter KJ , CODE NAME : Buzzchuck 😉 I gotta give a crazy shout out to Buzz from Action Figure Adventures for not only sending me an awesome assortment of action figures,but for also including this Dollar General Shipwreck figure.Of all the figures from this line,Shipwreck was the figure I wanted the most and thanks to Buzz I can finally add him to my collection!
About a month ago my buddy Buzzchuck (Kevin) commented on my 1984 Storm Shadow figure and offered to send me a replacement waist for him seeing as how the waist on the one I posted about was really yellow.He said he would be sending it out in November along with a couple of other things and I couldn’t have been more psyched about it!Buzz ,you made my day buddy!I had been looking for a replacement waist piece for my Stormy forever it seems but never pulled the trigger and now thanks to Buzz I can scratch that off my list 😉 “A FRIGGIN’ DOLLAR GENERAL JOE !!!!” That’s what I yelled out after pulling out this ridiculously elusive DG Shipwreck figure!Unbelievably cool package you sent me here Kevin and I couldn’t be more appreciative of it!From ToyBiz ,80’s COPS figures to a carded Iron Man 2 figure,there’s so much more to go over but i’ll let the pic do the talking for now until I can get down to posting about them in greater detail.If you haven’t already,be sure to check out Buzzchucks blog at http://actionfigureadventures.blogspot.com/.He’s got a little bit of everything over there as well as some great insight on the toy collecting hobby!Thanks again Buzzchuck(Kevin)!P.S. I’ll be putting a little something together for you soon now that I have your address 😉
