In addition to comic books, I also purchased some trading cards and toys(surprise, surprise ;) ), at the most recent Albany Comic Con. The best of the bunch is excluded, as they will be in a subsequent post.
I’m always game for non-sprts trading cards, especially when they’re from the years when I was heavily collecting. The Ghost Rider and Wolverine cards are ones that I clearly remember. The Trouble Trolls are a different story though. I remember Trash Can Trolls, and they were great. Rip-offs of Garbage Pail Kids, but great none the less. So these the Troll cards were purchased more out of curiosity. More than likely, you’ll see these packs opened over on my other blog.
These came out of a 5 for $1.00 box. An here’s the rundown, clockwise.
The Luigi toy is from the 1989 Super Mario Bros. 3 McDonald’s Happy Meal. I only have one other toy from this series, so there wasn’t a question at 20 cents.
Then we have Petunia Pig as Wonder Woman from the 1991 Looney Tunes/DC Comics(?), Happy Meal. The only one I’m missing is the Daffy Duck/Batman figure from this set. I had it at some point in the last few years(as well as when it was originally released), and I cannot seem to find it. Petunia here, is a double. So, it’s up for grabs, if anyone is interested.
Megavolt looks like a cereal premium, but I can’t be sure. It’s stamped 1992, and it looks right for the time, but I just don’t know. You can’t go wrong with Darkwing Duck anyway.
I’ve mentioned the animated 1989 Beetlejuice Burger Kings toys in the past. And it’s no secret that I’m a fan of the animated series(as well as the movie), but these just don’t turn up at all in my travels. So I will pick ’em up anytime I see them. 2 down, 4 to go!
The last one seems like something insignificant, but it might be my favorite(and these are all great). It’s a 1991 Back to the Future animated series Happy Meal toy! I couldn’t tell you anything about the other toys in the series, but I sure as hell remember this one! It doesn’t do anything but roll on it’s wheels, but I love it!
The next post is a sponsored post, but the one following will conclude(and include), the best of my purchases from the ACC.
