New Years resolution :The Purge

Ok so I am just blaintanly stealing this post idea from my friend Tony over at 2 minute toy break. 2018 marked a drastic change in my interests and collecting habits and my New Years resolution works at solidifying ,streamlining and ultimately  improving my over all collection. I call my New Years resolution the purge.Now to be honest I have been in the process of getting rid of stuff for years but in 2019 I plan on really upping my efforts. I have already begun The Purge step one: The deep painful cut. I am selling all my Marvel legends ,Monster High Dolls, Figmas and other Japanese animation toys, All Superheroes (except for Imaginext Dc),random 6 inch(excluding MOTUC) and 3 inch figures and all designer vinyl (not pops but the more expensive step brother to pops). There is multiple reasons for this but mainly my interests have changed ,I need space and the extra money from selling these things will allow me to fill the expensive holes in my currently active collections.I have also whittled down my "active collections" ,now instead of everything under the sun my collecting  is geared at 5.5 action figures and other toys that will fit in or compliment 5.5 figures .This still allows for a pretty wide selection of stuff such as plastic dinosaurs and insects that are not 5.5 but can work as monsters or steads. I will also continue my DC Super friends Imaginext collection because they are inexpensive and don't take up a very large amount of space.The change in my collection also rings in changes here on my blogs.This blog will be going to monthly or less posts and 5.5 will be monthly also .I figure with fewer posts it will be easier for the busy folks in the blogger world to keep up with them and it gives me plenty of time to put together cool pictures for all of you to look at. As well as few blog posts I will be returning to my older style of wordless posts and just let the images tell the story (I will gladly answer any questions in the comments) .On the opposite hand I will be posting 3 or for times a week on facebook ,it  that will mostly be single images with a simple description. Well I think that covers it , seems like a lot of words for a single New Years resolution lol. Now, as a little bonus to rest your eyes from looking at that wall of bright green text here are some random images I have save from various places that are just current taking up space on my desktop. Enjoy!

5.5 random group shot!

I thought I would toss a little 5.5 goodness on the old Green plastic squirtgun and I love this picture but don't really have any reason to post it on Five point five alive  so here it is!

To each their own..

I'm not big on Christmas decorations,trees ,traditional christmas chotchkies or any of that stuff that people keep in the attic till this time of the year. That being said I felt a momentary twitch in my festivity neurons today ( I thought it was the onset of a seizure at first but it turns out it was just this thing they call "Christmas spirit" ) So without betraying my own decorating sensibilities I gave in to those whimsical festive feelings and tossed some led Christmas lights onto my giant Fortune Tellers advertising hand! Nobody's calling me the grinch this year.

The Grossery Gang: Time Wars

I had a little trouble finding these to start with but now it seems they have all been sent to discount stores (angering those who paid 80$ to 120$ on ebay for some of the hard to find figures). Being a huge cheapskate I figured if I was meant to have them they would turn up at Goodwill or I would luck out and find them in store, and finally I did find them in store.

I'm still looking for some of the older figures that I never say in store and again Im sure they will turn up at Goodwill someday .

RIP Stan Lee

Comic book genius Stan Lee, Spider-Man creator, dies at 95.

Random shelf.

While Im kicking around waiting for stuff to show up in the mail I thought I would stick some filler up on this blog. It's just like tv , no matter how great the show is there will always be filler episodes.

just a little reminder

Just a little reminder for those who might have missed it it the previous times ..I am now making posts at  .Green plastic squirtgun  is no longer receiving  new content so make sure to bookmark five point five alive for my new content!

We don't talk anymore.

Im not going to candy coat this. If I comment on your blog regularly and you never reciprocate I will no longer be commenting on or following your blog.We all put work into these posts and I feel like it's unfair for people to just take a free ride approach and never comment and if I'm a commenter on your blog why are so much holier than thou that you can't reciprocate? I really am directing this at 2 bloggers specifically but it goes for our failing community as a whole. There are so few of us left that we should be this tight knit group but thats not the case. It appears these days that everybody is out for themselves and damn the neighbors .There are 1000's of places for me to see pictures of anything any of you have to post. I look at these blogs and comment because we used to be a community and I enjoyed the interaction between all of us but that has gone the way of AOL .I know this all sounds harsh but its simply the way it is.

my growing collection

Hear you can compare what my customized versions look like in comparison to one of the figures in its origenal state ( Lock lips on the far right).I really like these modern interpretations on the classics and I also like the over sized head look they give the figures.

Madballs head popping action figures Skull face!

this is my 2nd custom  restoration using the new Kidrobot 3 inch vinyl blind box  madballs to replace the classic soft heads that originally came on these bodies .When you get these guy with the origenal heads they cost an arm and a leg but the headless bodies can be bought for a song! then adding a slightly modified retro style kidrobot Madball as a head and poof you have the Marvel legends of Madball figures!

I actually picked up a few things in the last week that were not 5.5 figures! After taking a break here and thinking it over I've decided to keep both blogs active .This blog will be for everything thats not a 5.5 style figure. So with out further adieu ,meet ny new little friends:

 yes yes I know ..uhg Funk Pops but the stigmata of buying more Pops! was offset buy my deep love of  A: Green B: Monsters C: Gremlins! so these had to come home with me.

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:  
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
