So, we’ve seen some comics, some trading cards and some toys. Well, today we’ll close out with a few more toys. Action figures, to be exact.
Shockwave is mostly complete, as you can see. When I made the purchase, everything looked to be in order. When I got home and did some research, I found that one of the included guns does not go with this figure. It is the same color, but the type of gun isn’t correct. I’m sure that this was an honest mistake, and 7 dollars is fair for what I got. The only real issue I have, is that the figure will not stay standing when I put his back pack on. When I was a kid, I must’ve had this figure on 3 or 4 separate occasions. Maybe it the design on his uniform, because version 2 of Storm Shadow had almost the same pattern, and I must’ve got him 3-4 times as well.
Major Bludd is the 3rd version of the figure, and was released as part of the Battle Corps line. I found him in a $1.50 bin, but the seller(who I’ve dealt with in the past), said a dollar for him would be fine. He has some type of harness on him, that doesn’t belong to him, but I don’t just want to chuck it. Although the figure is stamped 1991, it was released in 1994. I’m guessing this is just a repaint of an existing figure. I like it though.
8 dollars for 2 Joes is a decent deal, considering that Shockwave has been on my want list for quite some time now(gotta wait ’til you find a price your comfortable with).
