Trade With Action Figs & Things – Part III

Posted in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Toys with tags , , , , , , , , on October 28, 2012 by Jason

This is the third, and final part of the recent trade with Action Figs & Things.

Everything in this trade was awesome, but I saved my favorite for last.

These were 2 needed additions to my old-school TMNT collection.  My focus on the line is diverted to unique characters, with little focus on Turtle variations(there are a few exceptions).  I’ve wanted to add Splinter to the collection for a while, but I always seem to find him without his robe.  For me, the robe needs to be included, in orderr to warrant a purchase.  This remedies that situation.

Triceraton is another figure that I’ve had at the top of my list, and he even came with his blaster.  This figure was released in 1990.  But the Triceraton race actually has it’s roots in the old-school TMNT comics.  So this figure has a lot going for it.

Due to limited space at the moment, Splinter will probably be the only one of the 2 to be displayed(the M.U.S.C.L.E.s and Nemesis Enforcer will be on display as well).

Thanks again Anthony!

Trade With Action Figs & Things – Part I

Posted in Toys with tags , , on October 18, 2012 by Jason

A short while back, Anthony from Action Figs & Things and I made a trade.  We both knew what the majority of the trades would be, and it’s exiting to get some new items for the collection while helping out a fellow collector add to their collection.

Here’s the first part of the fantastic package Anthony put together for me.

I can always use more M.U.S.C.L.E.s for my collection!  Not only did I not have any of these 3, but this would also be my first colored figure from the line.  The last time I owned a colored M.U.S.C.L.E. was when I was a kid when the colored ones were originally released.  These are very clean and are a great addition to my slow and steady M.U.S.C.L.E. collection.  Thanks again Anthony!

I will be showing the rest of the contents from this great package in seperate posts over the next week or so.  Stay tuned!

Thank You Pancuco!

The package you see above was sent to me from Pancuco, over at Action Figs & Things.  Anyone care to fathom a guess??

Up first…

It’s Wingnut.  If you know your classic toys, you’ll know this guy is from the extensive line of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  He’s some sort of super hero bat.  He originally came with a little mosquito, who is his sidekick, Screwloose(I would love to find him, as well as Muckman’s sidekick, Joe Eyeball).  He is also missing his wings, but still looks pretty nice.

Up next is Groundchuck.  I don’t know much about him, other than the obvious…He’s a cyborg bull.  I think he looks pretty bad ass!

We have one more to go.  But I just want to say, that I never owned any of these figures before.  And that’s a good thing.  There’s also another plus…None of these figures are variations of the Turtles themselves.  While I would never turn down a Turtle I don’t have, my focus on this collection is the all of the other characters(and no variations of April or Splinter either, although I do need the O.G. Splinter for my collection).  Anyway, here’s the last one, and my personal favorite of the 3 Pancuco sent me.

This is Walkabout.   Like Wingnut, he also came with a mini sidekick(Kid Kanga).  The one difference I noticed with Walkabout from the other figures in this line are the legs.  If you look, you’ll see that his legs aren’t on ball joints like every other figure in the line.  His hips are sockets, and he has hinged knees.  I don’t know why this was done, but he is able to stand really well.

Again, thank you Pancuco!  You’ve given these guys a great home, and you’re welcome to come see them whenever you want.  🙂
