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 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.

Time Hunters! UPDATE

jboypacman over at  http://revengefromthecosmicark.blogspot.com/  came up with a great idea to create his own  custom team of heroes made up of different action figures in his collection and put the word out for other bloggers to do the same.I quickly began to brainstorm and came up with the “Time Hunters!”.Why “Time Hunters” you ask?Well because they are time travelers transcending time and space in search of lost  civilizations,recruiting only the fiercest and most resilient subjects along the way.Those who have what it takes  will have the privilege of  joining Captain Sparrow and the “Time Hunters” on countless missions and time traveling adventures.Kind of like Star Trek with cooler characters 😉

Name: HUNTER Sparrow (Captain Jack Sparrow)

Time Period: 1700’s

Bio: When a genetically advanced trooper from the future accidentally takes possession of  an alien device,he along with his ship are sent back in time and    discovered washed up on the  shoreline by Captain Jack Sparrow.The stranded visitor offers Jack  Sparrow  the chance to navigate a different kind of ship in hopes that  this cocky,vagabond of a Pirate would somehow lend his expertise in celestial navigation to assist on his journey back to his home planet.Always up for an adventure,Captain Sparrow obliged.Totally oblivious to the perils and dangers of time traveling,Sparrow and his new found  ally embark on an epic adventure that would eventually lead to new alliances ,dangerous confrontations and the birth of  a new breed of  galactic heroes…The “TIME HUNTERS!”

Name: Spartan Gungnir (2nd in command)

Time Period: 2,552

Bio: Not much is known about this genetically advanced Marine other than the fact that he has accidentally traveled in time after discovering an Alien  device on his planet.He is a tremendous asset to the team yet is reluctant to become an official member and chuckles every time  Captain Sparrow refers to himself as a “Time Hunter”.

 

Name: HUNTRESS Ripley (Ellen Ripley)

Time Period: 2,122

Bio:After a brief skirmish that resulted in Spartan Gungnir blasting a hole in an Alien creature hunkered over her bruised,tattered and near life-less body,Ellen Ripley joins Sparrow and  his team of  “Time Hunters”  as a sign of gratitude for saving her life.

 

 

Name: Kritter (given to him by Ellen Ripley)

Time Period: Unknown

Bio: Unknown

 

 

 

Name: HUNTER Roadblock (Marvin Hinton)

Time Period:Present

Bio:Roadblock is the heavy machine gunner for G.I. Joe.There seems to be some kind of a connection between the Alien time travel device and G.I. Joe’ s arch-nemesis  Cobra Commander.Captain Sparrow,Spartan Gungnir and Ellen Ripley find themselves in the midst of a heated battle between G.I. Joe and Cobra.Not knowing who’s side to take ,Sparrow naively sides with Cobra Commander,prompting Roadblock to prove to Spartan and Ripley that  G.I. Joe are the good guys.Together they launch an attack on Cobra in attempts to free a brainwashed Captain Sparrow from the clutches of Cobra.

M.O.T.U. 1984 Roboto 4/2-4/7

This is another figure that made it into my collection by way of  my buddy  jboypacman who sent me  a  package a while back  with some cool M.O.T.U. figures.This one here is Roboto,a character i know nothing about other than the fact that he is from the M.O.T.U. line and that i do remember him as a kid.My memories of owning M.O.T.U. figures  growing up are few and far between but i can honestly say that this was one the figures i didn’t have.I remember having a Battle Armor He-Man,a Ram- Man and a Man- At -Arms but that’s about it.I really liked the figures and the cartoon but i was so much into the Joe stuff that i really didn’t pay too much attention to these at the time.I’ll never forget the time my brother-in-law who used to paint houses,walked in the front door with a bag full of misc. D&D and He-Man toys he had found in a vacant house he was working in.He dumped them on the front porch and i went nuts going through them all!That’s how i got the majority of my M.O.T.U. figures as a kid.With the release of the G.I. Joe Retaliation figures a couple of months away i can focus a little more on my 80’s collection again and M.O.T.U. figures will be one of the lines on my radar.Many thanks to jboypac for the Roboto figure 😉  Enjoy the pics!

New Additions (thanks to jboypac!)

Not only did jboypacman send me an awesome Toxie figure that had been on my wanted list for a while now,but he also sent over some other figures as well.I can still remember the feeling i got back in the 4th grade during our class gift exchange party when i received a Tunnel Rat figure from my secret santa.As a kid,the feeling of receiving a G.I. Joe figure as a gift is unparallelled and thanks to jboypacman i got to feel that way all over again!I was already wowed by the complete Toxie when i noticed  the 25th ann. Joe figures Tiger Force Duke and Croc Master!On top of that  i had been at Wal-Mart earlier that day looking for a Captain America Movie Crossbones figure so when i opened the package and found him next to an awesome War Machine figure and a Playmobile version of  Zorro,my jaw dropped! You can’t find this figure anywhere. The Joes and Crossbones figure play an integral part in my action figure collection but as cool as the War Machine and Playmobile figurey are i’ll be passing them on. Consider this a second thank you and a much deserved one to jboypacman!If anyone is interested in the War Machine,Zorro and Batmobile let me know!

 

If anyone is interested in any of these two figures(War Machine,Playmobile Zorro) or Batmobile let me know!
