Cool Toy Show Pick-Ups #3 & #4!

I wanted to get the last 2 pick-ups from the toy show, because I have something else I have to review.  It’s something I’m looking forward to, so let’s get the last 2 items out of the way.

Momaw Nadon, also known as Hammerhead.  I won’t say too much because I plan on opening, and reviewing this guy.  I really like all of the backround characters in the Star Wars movies, and Momaw here is one of my favorites.  I happily paid the $5 that was asked for him.  I would like to have one of the old-school figures of Hammerhead for my collection, but this one will do for now.

Next is what my buddy Dean(Deaner!) got me for my birthday(May 2).

Brad Turner, a.k.a. Condor.  This is the first M.A.S.K. figure in my collection!  This was the one I always wanted.  The only one I ever owned was Jackhammer(which is pretty cool), but Condor was my favorite of them all!  I actually di own this figure for a very short time.  I can’t remember the exact year, but a kid down the street actuall gave me the Brad Turner figure, and Condor!  Not only that, but he also gave my brother and I a plastic Sword of Owens(I’d love to find that again), and a huge stack of Garbage Pail kids.  He(the kid), was getting to the point where he felt too cool to be associated with this “kids” stuff, so that’s why we ended up with it.  But, my dad inquired about where we got these new found things, and then made us give them back!  Even though this one’s missing it’s windshield, it’s good enough for me.

So, not a bad haul, eh?  But I also got something else that day, but it wasn’t from the toy show.  We were out for my birthday, remember?!

Cool Toy Show Pick-Up #2

This is a 1986 Cobra Viper.  To me, the Cobra Viper is the figure that defines Cobra.  I remember these guys from the show, and like most of the characters from Cobra, they were idiots.  But they do look really cool.  This was at a sellers table, in a Ziploc bag, and it was complete, marked to sell at $7.  Now considering this figure is complete, $7 is a hell of a deal!  But the bargain hunter in me had to see if they would take $5 for it(it was on my way out and it was the last of the money I had on me).  The guy looked at it, and said “Yeah, okay.”.  These guys had really good prices on all of their figures, but this one caught my eye.  The dealers were from Comic Depot, and you can check out their wares here.

Still, more to come.

I always thought Trap Jaw was one of the coolest and meanest MOTU villain.  I ended up scoring this guy for $4(originally marked at $6).  He stands very well, and will make a nice addition to my Masters of the Universe collection.  He will join my other villains Skeletor and Mantenna.  The only heroes I have are Buzz-Off and Rokkon(he’s on my Transformers and robots shelf though).  I really need to get a He-Man figure for the collection(2 actually, as I really want to get a Thunder Punch He-Man as well).

More to come soon.
