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 😉
The movie Aliens came out in 1986 and i must admit that i wasn’t that big of a fan of the sci-fi flick.I was 9 years old at the time and although i loved alien creatures and outer space adventures,Aliens just never grabbed my attention.What i do remember from the film was sigourney Weaver and how much of a bad a$# she was.So whenever Aliens would come on T.V. i would change the channel during the long ,drawn out dialogue heavy scenes but always switch back to it just to catch Sigourney Weaver(Lt.Ripley) expend some major clippage into some very creepy looking aliens!So i was pretty excited to see this figure in the package Jason http://jasonvorhees.wordpress.com/ sent me and while I’m not a big fan of the movie,I still loved the iconic role of Lt.Ripley played by Sigourney Weaver! Thanks again Jason,you have sparked my interest in this toyline and now i must hunt down a few more figures from this cool line!
Jason was even cool enough to send her to me with accessories and this cool Alien spawn face hugger!
