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’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!
The C.O.P.S. and CROOKS figure line released right around the time I stopped collecting Joe’s , ’88-’89 give or take. I did take a liking to the cartoon and always loved the way the figures looked but never bought any for myself as a kid.Instead,i remember buying Buttons Mc Boom Boom for my kid nephew and really diggin’ it.Lately I’ve been wanting to add a couple of these bad a#$ figures to my collection and thanks to Buzzchuck over at Action Figure Adventures ,i now have two to add to the toy shelf!I must admit,though,i didn’t recognize either of them but knew right away that they were from the C.O.P.S. and CROOKS line.This one here is “Bullit” and i can’t remember ever seeing him in any of the episodes i watched as a kid,but is a cool figure nonetheless!These guys look like overgrown G.I. Joe figures with their o-ring style waists,arm and leg joints.Hasbro clearly took the “if it ain’t broke” approach.I love the sculpt on this one and would love to hunt down some of his accessories,mainly his bullet shaped helmet and rolling land cannon.I would love to find a Big Boss or Bulletproof figure from this line as well . I can’t thank Buzz enough for sending this guy over to me as it currently occupies a whole in my collection that i’ve been wanting to fill for a looong time!
BTW-Here is a link to a pretty cool C.O.P.S. figure archive if you ever have to identify a figure or just for future reference 😉
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!
Another great surprise in the awesome box Buzzchuck sent to me a while back were these M.U.S.C.L.E. figures along with this Kreo Sunstorm and a small Star Wars figurine that I know absolutely nothing about.I’ll have to jump online and do my research 😉
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 😉
