Pretty much done here.

Well I have came to the conclusion it's time to start over on a new blog dedicated exclusively to what it is Im  collecting and directed towards the people who enjoy what it is I'm offering.I know here on green plastic squirtgun it's been a mixed bag of this and that and some people only look at Marvel posts and some people only look at Transformer posts and some people only look at monster posts and they only choose to comment on posts that pertain to exactly what it is they are into so when my collecting took a huge shift and narrowed down to a fine point it left me with people not wanting to take the time to open the posts or comment because it wasnt that specific thing they are into so I end up with 3 page views and one comment (thanks Tony!). I will now be posting at:
https://fivepointfivealive.blogspot.com/  
if you enjoy the 5.5 lifestyle then come on over but if its not your  jam then feel free to not because its going to be nearly all 5.5 (and dinosaures of course) from here on out and I know thats just not some peoples thing.I can't say I will never again post something here again but for the foreseeable future its going to all be on the new site.

catch you cats on the flipside (or not ,it's up to you).

Made by me

This is my first ( of probably many to come ) Remco style 5.5 custom figure. I named this guy Mr.Frost  as a homage to Mr. Tumnus from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Late Edit: This may in fact be the final post of this blog. I feel like I'm ready to wash my hands of it right now but I guess we will see how I feel later.

Gangrenous Acromancer

Im not altogether sure what this guys name is. He is a very very rare convention exclusive version of another rare exclusive so it's hard to track down his given name, I think combining the names of 2 other similar figures  to make the name  Gangrenous Acromancer sounds pretty cool.


The skeleton army is adapting to the new 5.5 world I have built ! Expect to see more of the exploits of the skeletons in the near future.

Tiny slime pit.

This is the Imaginext Ooze pit.This set is clearly a homage the vintage MOTU slime pit and I have to say I love it .


Life lessons I learned taking this picture : 1 ,the slime of today is not the same beast as the slime of my youth. Its super water and uncontrollable. When you pour out this stuff you you are literally pouring it out and its going to run everywhere. 2, The slime of today burns when it gets in your eyes. 3, If playing with the slime of today expect to get it in your eyes ( also mouth ,nose , ears and in the eyes again.) 3: as watery as the slime of today is you would think that cleaning it off of your hands , the table , the floor , the toys and ect would be easy...yeah you can think that but its the wrong answer . 5, If a toy comes with slime its probably just best you not play with the slime.

Hercules Unbound and the mystery of the golden sword

This is Remcos Hercules Unbound .Many people have commented over the years that this looks nothing like Hercules and they are right ...sort of . This figure is based on the mid 1970's Hercules Unbound comic book and not the legendary hero of the past. This version of  Hercules was set in a post apocalyptic future and only lasted 1 year in publication .The comics are roughly the same price now as they were back then and will set you back about a buck each and in my opinion are really worth reading. This sword he is hold is not to him , its not even a Remco weapon and I have zero clue where its from originally but it came with him so I left it in his hand.

next figure on my list to get is Arak but Im being picky and waiting fro a complete version to show up in my 20$ or less price range so it might take a while.

Update! I finally fixed the gold cord that is supposed to be on this figure. Its a small thing but it makes a difference

Five point five alive!

This is my collection of non MOTU 5.5 figures so far. I had kept the Warrior Bestss on a shelf of their own in the middle of my MOTU collection but I decided they should live with the other "knockoffs"
This seems like a good place to reiterate that if any of you out there have any of these old off brand MOTU clones and would be willing to sell or trade them please feel free to message me.

Realm Of The Underworld ,Corpse Tooth

This guy is a recolor of the Remco skeleton used in Pirates of the Galaxseas  as Ribs and Crossbones ( both very rare and very expensive)

quick shelf overhaul update

For some reason Walmart has decided that they will no long be selling white bookcases so my process of making all my shelves white hit a roadblock. I decided that I really wanted my new shelf of motu type figures to be on the nice white area so I covered this one section of the bookcase with white self adhesive shelf paper and white poster boards. This method is not ideal but it works for the time being.

Blackstar and Warlock

Look at that noble beast! I came across this guy the other day in a junk store.This is one of those things I didn't think I would ever see in the wild.

Group shot


I figure very few people saw this the first time around so no harm in rerunning it.
Feel free to check out the first post to feature this image (its really great and worth at least 15 seconds of your time ,I promise) : here Savage World: Mortal Kombat X, Scorpion Chase variant


and here as an extra bonus is a shot of my "expanded universe" motu ko shelf as it stands on 6/5/2018. This shelf is about to go through a rather large overhaul so I thought I would document it in its early primitive stage.

Savage World: Mortal Kombat X, Scorpion Chase variant








I cant get enough of these guys! As I have said probably 2000 times already I am super excited to get my hands on the Thundercats. On a side note I now have 2 loose Muckmans from the most recent tmnt toy line, and I would be more than willing to trade the extra for a couple of the vintage MOTU figures I need (Ninjor would be great).

5 properties I would like to see in Funko's Savage World line.

I have to admit I am smitten with the Funko Savage World line. I didn't think I would really like it to much but once I had them in my hands that all changed. They are like those extra troops from the cheap section from back when we were kids much like the Remco lines. These are 5 properties Id like to see in the line.
Bravestarr


Universal Monsters


Tigersharks


The Saga of Crystar, Crystal Warrior


Dungeons and dragons

Soma Fantasy World : Hellord

This line is pretty much overlooked but in my opinion they are a better quality figure than the more recognisable Remco figures. One issue with these guy  is that the weapons suffer from gold plastic syndrome  (I broke this guy's wand and the handle on the shield ).
