The Unveiling

So you got a sneak peek of the contents of the box of stuff that found it’s way into my possession Saturday afternoon.  I won’t keep up the suspense any longer!

This past Saturday I had to attend the baby shower for one of my friends(his woman).  We were playing some beer pong in the garage, and I got a phone call.  It was another one of my friends, who happened to be garage saling at the time. He asked if I would be interested in certain action figures, I ran off a few lines and he arrived at the house a short time later.

The box you originally saw was not completely full, but it was a pretty big box, and had a good amount of stuff.

We’ll start off slow, but we’ll end strong.

There were tons of accessories for many lines, and I have to say that I couldn’t match up what a lot of them went to.

These were all scattered in the box.  I sorted them into ones that I could identify, and ones I couldn’t.  The two bags above are the ones that I couldn’t immediately identify.  There’s enough there to supply an action figure war here!

Now we’ll take a look at the accessories that I could immediately identify.

Here we have a nice mix.  You can see King Hiss’s back armor plate, Rokkon’s laser, one of Modulok’s legs a random MOTU sword.  There are also two mask’s from M.A.S.K. figures.  One of them is Jackhammer’s, and he was my favorite toy from that line.  There’s also a couple of fists from old school Transformers. a glow in the dark grenade from the Toxic Crusaders line, a Battle Beasts weapon, and an Incredible Crash Dummies head.

But that’s not it, as far as accessories go!

I actually need a few of these TMNT accessories to go with figures in my collection.  Now all four turtles will have at least one of their trademark weapons!  The miniature canisters of ooze will nicely compliment my TMNT shelf.

Like I said, we’ll start off slow, so now we’ll pick up the pace.

Or maybe not.  These are the ones I have no need for(though, the guy in front of Wolverine looks cool).  I only could identify Wolverine, and I believe the guy in front of him is from The CORPS.  Anyone know who the other two are?

Here are some cool little guys, that I couldn’t identify, but are nice looking none the less.

The wizard is the only one that’s stamped, but I’ll need to get a magnifying glass, as it’s very hard to read.  All 3 of these will probably end up finding themselves displayed for all to see around Halloween.  I’m really loving that ghost!

Now we’re going to see my favorites of the lot.

Casey freakin’ Jones!  One of the coolest characters, and he’s only missing his golf club!  I was really excited to see him in the mix, with the accessories being a nice bonus.  Krang may be missing a tentacle, but I don’t mind, as I didn’t have Krang for my collection(you gotta start somewhere, right?).  The little troll guy looks both cool and familiar, but I can’t quite place where he’s from.  Anybody got any guesses?

Now we’re movin’!

Thunderbolt from Supernaturals!  These are some really nice figures.  There not very articulated, but the holograms is what makes these figures so cool.  I think this was the only one of the larger figures to not have a chest plate to cover his chest.  But he was not alone.

And lastly, we have See-Thru, also from the Supernaturals line.  When I was a kid I only got a few of these “Ghostling” figures, I never got any of the larger ones.  I prefer the look of the Ghostlings anyway.  My favorite was Mr. Lucky(he’s the one with the orange cloak).  Eventually, I would like to get all of the Ghostlings.  The weapons that were packed with these figures were glow-in-the-dark.  You can’t get much cooler than holograms and glow-in-the-dark combined.  I just wish I would come across deals like this more often.  🙂

    So awesome grabs Jason congrats! I been wanting to get a hold of some Super Natural figures myself so those were a awesome score. The little Troll dude comes from a line of Bendy Toys that name escapes at the moment Fantasy World i think? Bubba Shelby has some of these so he would know for sure. : )

  2. I likr the wizard the best … I know that sounds wierd, but they did such a good job capturing the “archetype” that comes to mind when you think “wizard”

    Ok Jason i now remember the name of the toy line that the little troll came from it’s called “Other World” not “Fantasy World” like i thought.

    I actually had some of these years and years ago and they were bendy toys with some rubber/plastic monsters in the mix.

  4. Nice finds, Jason! I really like those Supernaturals. They were such a unique line of toys.
