A package, from a trade I made with John from the Clawful Punch,arrived today! I’m super stoked about the Quick Kick and Crystal Ball figures as they were a part of my collection as a kid. Nice to have them back! The Perseus figure had been on my want list for a while now so I can finally scratch him off. I’ll be doing individual posts as soon as I get a little extra time. Thanks again John!
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!
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.
This was one of the centerpieces included in the trade i recently made with Jason Vorhees.Combat Heroes.I told myself a long time ago that i would never collect any of these cool little figures because of the overall collectability of them.There were just so many of these on store pegs everywhere,i was afraid they would take my focus off of more important pieces needed to fill out my collection. If that makes any sense.Long story short…being the Snake Eyes collector that i am,naturally i was going to ask Jason if he had anything Snake Eyes related to add to the mix, and he quickly sent me a picture of these little guys!Now normally i wouldn’t have gone for these Combat Heroes figures but this was Snake Eyes…and Timber…and Zartan we were talking about here!Needless to say i accepted the offer and now i own 3 Combat Heroes 🙂 I wanted this set mainly because of Snake Eyes and Timber and thought they would be a unique pair to add to my small yet growing collection of Snake Eyes figures.It turns out that the Zartan figure is just as cool!His vest is made of a translucent blue plastic that looks great when light shines through it.The pics i took demonstarting that are a little blurry because i took them without the flash.
I recently acquired a few new figures in a trade with Jason Vorhees over at http://jasonvorhees.wordpress.com/ and throughout the week i’ll be posting about them.I’ll start things off with this Winston Zeddmore figure from the -Slimed Heroes- line of Kenner’s Ghostbusters figures released in 1990. I’ve been wanting to add some Ghostbusters to my collection,particularly from the first wave of figures released in the mid to late 80’s,so i was pretty excited about finding this in the package Jason sent me.While not an 80’s release,it’s still an awesome representation of Zeddmore.I’ll be on the look out for a replacement backpack and i’m assuming ones from the 80’s figures can fit on this figure as well.Now i’ll have to hunt down Venkman,Spengler and Stantz to complete the team.A big shout out to Jason for this and the rest of the figures i’ll be showing over the course of this week.
I’ve been wanting to add some more ROC Joes to the collection and i’m willing to part with some MU figures as well as some other obscure figures in my collection.Some of the figures i’m looking for from the ROC line are Destro,Breaker,Baroness or pretty much any reactive armor versions of Duke,Ripcord or Heavy Duty.Let me know!
A little while ago fellow blogger Jason Vorhees and I worked out a little trade and my package arrived today!I pretty much knew what I was getting already but Jason surprised me with a sealed set of 1989 Fleer Update baseball cards!The funny thing is that I was already thinking about collecting cards again and my focus was going to be on the ’88 and ’89 stuff so this gives me a bit of a head start 🙂 Within the set are RC’s of Randy Johnson,Robin Ventura,Jim Abbott,Todd Zeile and Deion Sanders!Awesome extra Jason!I’m also finally a proud owner of a vintage Thundercat figure and it is of my favorite character from the 80’s series Panthro.I’m also super impressed with the Bumblebee figure and can’t wait to make him an official member of the Wreckers ;)Last but certainly not least is this gem of a Toy Biz item still in its original box!Don’t let the box fool you,though,as the contents within are in Gem Mint condition and also alot bigger than I expected it to be.Thanks again Jason!
