Last Sunday was the annual toy show in Albany. I went last year, and found some pretty good stuff(you can read about it here, here and here).
It’s a small affair, but there are plenty of deals to be had. There were a few more vendors then there were last year, and about twice as many people in attendance.
Below are my action figure scores. I also purchased a handful of packs of older trading cards, but that’s for another time, and another blog.
Everything you see above, cost me a total of $16! Not a bad deal at all!
Lion-O was originally priced at $8, but I was able to get the seller down to $6. He came with his claw shield, but it looks like one of his eyes could be burnt out. The seller and I were unable to confirm this, which is why we agreed $6 would be fair.
Snout Spout, Sgt. Bananas and Robocop were purchased in a lot deal for a total of $5.
Snout Spout’s head is incredibly loose, and his legs are very loose at the hips, but I’ve wanted to add him to the collection for a while, so this one will be fine as a placeholder.
Robocop is from the Robocop and The Ultra Police line. He is missing his gun, but he does have his helmet, which is missing almost all of the time. If I can find strip caps(is that the right phrasing?), I’m sure the cap-firing action will still work.
Sgt. Bananas is in almost pristine condition, and he’s not a figure I have come across in the wild. He’s one of the more wild looking figures, and fits my collecting focus for old-school TMNT(which is secondary characters). The only variant Turtles I’d like at this point, are the cartoon Turtles and the Movie Star Turtles.
And lastly, we have the Cobra Viper from the 1990 G.I. Joe Sonic Fighters line. This was a steal at $5(there was no need to haggle here), since he is complete. Not only is he complete, but the batteries were still in the backpack, and the sounds still work! The sounds are pretty generic, but it’s still a pretty awesome feature. Had I known that the backpacks still worked, I would have bought the other Sonic Fighters he had(all were only $5, and they were all complete). This came from the same seller I got Shockwave from, and this guy has great prices, and all of his figures are complete.
