Rainstorm Garage sale goldmine

We drove by a garage sale in the pouring rain earlier and decided to pull in and check it out because nobody else was there and Im glad we did.

Some of these things are copy's of items I already had but it doesn't hurt to have a few duplicates .

    1. Thanks! I had to pick carefully because my wife was limiting the amount of things I could buy. I left behind a bunch of heman and rambo guys and just random 80's stuff.

  5. Just some amazing grabs! Love the Battle Beasts lunch box which could double as a carrying case for the actual toys. The Shambling Mound is something i would love to find always wanted that one but never got(I had the large orge instead). The best has to be those Fantasy Worlds figures it seemed like i had more than my share of these as a kid i need to hunt down some of these again as i just love those large plastic monsters lol.

  6. Wow, I had some of those bendy figures. I think they came with glow in the dark weapons? Just looking at them makes me remember how they smell when you opened the package.

  8. I am insanely jealous!!! How much loot would you have carried home had the wife not been around? I know my wife is the bane of my collecting existence... sometimes. I suppose one of us has to be semi-reasonable though.

    1. Thanks! To put it simply I would have bought all the toys no matter condition or if I had it or not. I always buy older stuff like that when I see it thinking I might someday trade it but my stuff has built up so much that I understand why she limits the intake.

      Delete
  9. WOW! I never find hauls like that!! I could swear I had that 2 headed dragon with a saddle on it!!

  11. Thanks! Your description just let me snatch one off ebay. So awesome. I always thought it was an odd version of the man-thing so it never came up in any searches anywhere. Now i'll have one ^_^ Your blog is pretty incredible.

    1. Thanks and Im glad I could help! Im hoping to be able to buy one of you Critters in green if they dont sell out to fast.

      Delete
    2. Thank you! A decade of searching is finally over.

      Getting a Critter should not be a problem. There is a guy making lots of colors and mixes of colors as i type this so early next week there will be a link to his shop and everyone should be able to grab one. So far the neatest one in my opinion is a mix of neon green with neon pink.

    3. green with neon pink will fit in with my stuff perfectly. I cant wait to check those out!
