Summer Break

Hey guys! I know there hasn't been a any posts lately but I've been busy. I've got multiple toy projects going on at the same time and I've hardly had time to go toy hunting. All I've been doing is waking up, working and going back to bed mostly.So I'm taking a break from blogging for a bit.

UNLESS it's about a toy project that I'm working on because I know SOME of you guys out there are into designer toys and that's what I've been working on. Including helping END of Argonaut Resins produce Sneakerheads for Cookies N Cream.  So check them out!

On a side note, I gotta say, Jboypacman is a BRO! We worked out a trade a while back and I've been meaning to show you guys what I got, he really hooked it up. Not only that but Jboy CONSISTENTLY posts comments here. If that doesn't make him BRO I don't what does. Btw, Jboy, I still got your Warpath, I'm just having trouble finding an extra I'm gonna throw in.

Anyway, hope you guys are enjoying your summer, remember to play with your toys and be sure to send me b-day gifts as mine is coming up VERY SOON.

Nah, just kidding, you don't have to, though my b-day is August 10th!

Foreign Friday #5

Motion Revive Series: Kamen Rider Series 2, The Bee by Bandai.
I don't know much about the Kamen Rider: The Bee but I know he was featured in Kamen Rider Kabuto, looks pretty cool and I got him at a rockbottom price of only $3.99!

Toy Haul Thursday

Sorry guys no Then & Now this week. Haven't had the time to set it up. So instead you get a toy haul. Haven't gotten much, but these past few weeks was somewhat fruitful. Also, if you're having trouble finding Marvel Universe figures, I suggest Marvelous News' forums. That how I scored Archangel and Crossbones!

You guys remember this, right? Well, this project is moving full steam ahead after some hiccups. I'm hoping to have this done on or before New York Comic-Con but I'm not making any promises. I'll keep you updated though!

Transformers Tuesday #4

Kup here is from the Transoformers Generations line. Really digging how Hasbro is slowly updating their way towards the 86' figures, even though they missed a few of the 84/ 85 figures.

Mini Monday #8

Another Cap Monster from Dragon Quest but this time it fits over soda bottles. Japan sure does have some interesting toys, don't they?

Toy Fail #5

Found this one at the local Target. The worst part of this isn't that it's a movie Starscream but the fact that he doesn't even fit the tray. Shouldn't that have been obvious to the person who took the return?

Foreign Friday #4

Lupin the 3rd here hails from the Lupin the 3rd Action Figure Collection from Banpresto and was released in 1998. There's 5 figures in the set and have your basic 5 points of articulation. Which puts them on par with vintage Kenner Star Wars figures. Of course Star Wars figures don't have the charm and sophistication that only Lupin can have! He comes with a Walther P-38, which for those who don't know, is the very same gun that Megatron from Transformers, transforms into! Unfortunately I seem to have lost/ misplaced the gun but it could be in the box with all the GI Joe weapons.

Anyways, Lupin here is pretty awesome and I wouldn't give him up, even if I was offered the very tempting Microman version.


Update: Thanks to Jboypacman, he reminded me that I wanted to post a pic of the whole line.

Then & Now #1

With the revamps and remakes of pop culture TV shows and movies a number of toys/ action figures are also being made. This series of posts will showcase some of these toys.

Today's action figures are from the A-Team! Galoob made the figures in the 80's and are on par with G.I. Joes from 1982/ 83, articulation-wise, but the sculpting is isn't as well done as Joe's. Another issue witht the Galoob figures that they usually look like they're wearing lipstick or have a goofy look on there face. Not very manly for ex-soldiers on the run.

Toy Street haul

Looking through my pictures I noticed I failed to show you my haul from Toy Street.
I didn't get much but it certainly was an eclectic haul.

First we have a mini Evil from the RealxHead Mutant Zone collection. There are 4 figures in the the set but I could only afford one of them. The paint job is supposed to pay homage to the Ninja Turtles. Pretty cool for a vinyl figure with one point of articulation.

Transformers Tuesday #3

Jboypacman, this one is for you, TF: Generations Warpath! I've seen them floating around so next time I see one, it's yours! And yes, it's awesome!

Mini Monday #7

Akira here is from a blind box series that has scenes from the comic. It's been awhile since i got the little guy so I don't remember who makes the figures but I can guarantee you, it's from a Japanese maker. ;)

Happy Birthday America!

Toy Fail #4

Yet another, what is likely a return with some bootleg figure in the packaging. At least this time it looks like the figure it's supposed to be.

Foreign Friday #3

Perfect Cell here is another gashapon figure from Dragonball Z. I also found him here in Chinatown about 15 years ago. He used to be pink, until I painted him. Apparently I never finished painting him. Gonna have to fix that...
