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.
Love the boot detail!
There were a couple other smaller items that i will go over in the near future,but for now this will be the final “Recent Acquisition” post……sheesh!I know… the acquisitions aren’t even recent any more….but moving forward.This figure was the focal point of the trade Jason and i pulled off a while back and is a welcomed addition to my small collection of Rambo figures.It came loose without any accessories but I was lucky enough to hunt some of them down online and make this a semi-complete Rambo figure.One of the straps is missing from the motorized backpack along with a rifle,some grenades and the original knife.I do have some extra weapons laying around for this line of figures just in case i pick up any incomplete, loose figures.Enjoy the pics!
I was extremely happy to see this in the package Jason Vorhees sent me because it was a Joe!Any day you’re able to add a new Joe to the collection is a good day.I remember seeing this figure first on the Arc and really liking it.The 90’s Joe line featured lots of martial art/Ninja characters and Bushido here is one of them.I got this one loose without accessories but still dig the heck out of it.I quickly jumped on YOJOE.com to get some info on this guy and it turns out that he’s a “Snow” Ninja from Queens,NY.I think “Arctic” Ninja would have sounded better but “Snow”Ninja will do.How cool is it that he’s from Queens,NY!I can picture this guy high atop a snow covered apartment building in the middle of winter ready to pounce!He kind of comes off as a Marvel character with somewhat of an Iron Fist vibe to em’.Check out the Chuck Taylors in the last pic!”Kiss my cons!” 😉
It took me a while to figure out what line of figures this guy was from but thanks to http://www.collector-actionfigures.com/dash/home/ i was able to track down its origins.It seems like Toy Biz made an action figure line for pretty much all that existed for much of the 90’s.I’m pretty sure if i searched hard enough ,i’ll find a 90’s Toy Biz action figure of me.This is another cool figure included in the trade package sent over to me by Mr.Vorhees,and it is none other than Mesomorph from the live action TV series Hercules.Remember Mesomorph?No?Yeah me neither,but he is one sick looking little figure and fits in nicely with my other Toy Biz figures on display.He has a cool little action feature that make his arms flail up and down .While i am not a huge fan of the show,the figures look pretty cool and may be worthy of a second look if your into Greek Mythology.In other words,you don’t have to be a fan of the series to enjoy these Toy Biz creations 😉
