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 II

Posted in Toys with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 24, 2012 by Jason

Tonight we have the 2nd part of the recent trade betweeen myself and Anthony from Action Figs & Things.

First up is a 1997 Zorro figure from Playmates Toys.  Research tells me that this would most likely be from the first Antonio Banderas as Zorro movie from 1998.  It’s got a cool little action feature where he swings his sword in his trademark style(sort of).  I’m not familiar with the movies or the line, so this guy is a pass for me.  But no worries!  One of my friends has already claimed him.

And right beside Zorro stands Nemesis Enforcer.  Nemesis Enforcer was part of a 3-pack of G.I. Joe villains who first appeared in 1987’s, G.I. Joe-The Movie.  And any old-school Joe is a welcome addition!  Unlike Transformers-The Movie, I don’t remember too much from the first G.I. Joe movie(and it’s been a really long time since I last saw it, we’re talking almost 2 decades).  But these figures for the 3 Cobra-La Figures are unforgettable.  NE here, is only missing his grey wing “back pack”, to be complete.  And from what I’ve read, it seems that Nemesis Enforcer never displayed the green tentacles that come with the figure, in the movie.  Crazy!

Part III will be up in a few days.

Trade With Action Figs & Things – Part I

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!
