Here, There Be Dragons

 These are Mcfarlane Dragons that came out forever ago. I have long since forgent what each of these were named but the Chinese style dragon is my favorite.

Froggacuda

Froggacuda was made in 1983 by Arco toys to the fantasy line The Other World. Arco was absorbed by Mattel in the late 1980's so there is the slight (very slight) chance that we could see a revival of this line someday but really chances are good that nobody a Mattel even remembers they own the rights  to it.The line consisted of a hand full of bendy figures ,a castle ,a two headed dragon ,a firebird , and 2 pull back type motorized monster vehicles.I would love to see these guys get the Masters of the Universe Classics treatment.I dream of a 9 inch tall ,fully articulated Froggacuda !

Galaxy Fighters Baltard

This is the Galaxy Fighters from Sewco version of Baltard .This is a  knockoff of the knockoff line Galaxy Warriors .He is pretty easily distinguished from the origenal Baltard by the closed left hand,less detailed chest/body sculpt and a slightly squishy look to the head sculpt .Like the Sungold Galaxy Warriors version before this one he has a soft head and articulated legs. Later version such as the Galaxy Heroes had hard solid heads and fixed legs that only swiveled at the waist and from this point on the sculps get worse and worse till we get all the way down to those funky wrestlers that used to fill the Kaybee toys clearance bin at 3 for a buck.



Again I want to mention that I am actively trying to obtain more of these knockoffs and Im willing to trade or buy so don't hesitate to message me  and see what we can work out.

Batman Beyond : Blight

I originally owned Blight back almost 20 years ago but I never opened him.I owned all the Batman Beyond figures at that time but only opened Future Knight Batman and was less then amazed with it so I left the rest in the pack. Then a couple years later I decided it was time to trim down on the recent stuff I had bought (about 5 years worth of stuff) because I was moving cross country and didnt feel like fooling with so much packing so Blight was one of the many that went away back then.




But today I received a new one in the mail from Ebay and thanks to my friend Tony also got a new Batman Beyond figure the day before. Its pretty clear why I like this guy but Ill lay it out : He is my favorite green plastic squirtgun color , He is transparent ' He has a skeleton inside his transparent body and finally he GLOWs! He glows like a nuclear power plant after a melt down  , I rarely  come across luminescence this strong in a toy. He is the perfect storm ,combining many of the things that attract me into one super affordable action figure.

"The further adventures of an old man" day

So this Friday the 23rd is my " The further adventures of an old man day" aka birthday. Yesterday I got a surprise early birthday gift (complete surprise considering I'm normally the only person to by  me a gift lol) Now, I know from years of experience that non toy posts on here are nearly 90% ignored but Im going to share these things anyway because Im pretty excited about them.

First up is this awesome carved opal skull

now this guy was very hard to take a picture of. Its really very reflective and pretty in person colored almost like a more reflective june bug but in the pictures it just doesn't look that way .Its very cool and is the only glass dino in my collection.

This guy is a great hard ,solid plastic Trex .He is about 6 inches tall and his bright red ads a nice pop of color to one of my Dinosaur shelves

I also got a couple tee shirts of my 2 favorite bands ( Red Fang and Mastodon) but I will not bore you guys with pictures of them :)

Back from the dead (again)

I have decided to bring back the "want list".Have a look and see if there is anything listed that you are dying to get rid of  or just point and laugh at my absurd taste in toys, either way it's worth a quick peek. Here's the link :

R.I.P.


Its been a long time coming if you ask me. Surly ,unknowledgeable employees ,overpriced outdated stock and poorly stocked shelves is what I routinely found at Toys R Us so this is no shock to me at all.

He Bro , Heroic champion of another Eternea .

Please forgive the rough condition of his head .When I was shopping for this figure I mostly focused on finding  one that didn't have the plastic virus that is very prevalent in this figure (splotchy purple dots all over the arms and legs) and in doing this I didn't look closely enough at the paint on the head.I plan on replacing this peeling head with a new cast in brown head that will not have this issue so I guess you can call this a work in progress.

A good day at Goodwill

I had a pretty good trip to goodwill this morning and made a few very nice scores that I will get to on here at some point but right now lets take at look at these Gormiti .I picked these out of a fill a bag bin and was pretty pleased to find out once I got home that this set was never released in American, it was only released in parts of Europe and is considered one of the hardest to obtain sets in the entire line (and I just dug them out at random).






 The next thing I will be posting about is something Iv been wanting to replace for 20 years or better.
