Flea Market Finds #43 (video #9)

Over the weekend I found a big stack of toy cardbacks at the Flea Market. Most of these are vintage GIJoe cardbacks, but a few come from other lines as well. The collection of backer cards I bought weren't without their issues. Check out the video below.

Dr. Scarab - Bionic 6

Dr. Scarab, the main villain for the super powered family of heroes know as the Bionic 6. As a kid I enjoyed the Bionic 6 cartoon immensely. I only ever had Meg, the sister) but a friend of mine had several characters and I remember paying with them a lot. Dr Scarab, and Mechanic, fascinated me because they were such heavy toys. The die-cast metal figures, especially the larger ones were just really unique.

This is actually the 2nd Dr. Scarab to enter my collection. Bionic 6 figures a prone to major paint wear due to them being made of die-cast metal. This figure represents an upgrade to the Action Figure Adventures collection. He originally came with two accessories, a belt and a tool... but I'm still searching for them.

Bionic 6, Thundercats, and  Advanced Dungeons and Dragons were all fun toy lines from LJN.

King Randor - Vintage MOTU

As a kid I was a die-hard Masters of the Universe fan during the few years the He-Man cartoon was on the air. Later after the show was over and I stopped collecting the figures I remember seeing the King Randor for the vintage MOTU line at KB Toys. I couldn't believe they finally made the King, and the Sorceress. Both figures I wanted very much at an earlier point in th lines history. I gave up on He-Man and Thundercats after their shows ended to play with figures like GIJoe that did have a current cartoon

Many, many years later I finally got the vintage King Randor. No he's not perfect or complete... but I can always upgrade him later. Randor had a standard Masters body with recycled Jitsu armor. He had a new head with a removable crown. Additionally he came with a cloth blue cape and a gold version of Whiplash's spear.

This Randor is far more muscular, armored, and battle ready than the King Randor we saw in the cartoon, but he's still a fun figure. Now we kind of see where Prince Adam gets his fashion sense from.

Star Wars the Force Awakens Peg Warmers

Today Ryan and I check out some of the less interesting Star Wars the Force Awakens action figures. Almost every toy line has a peg warmer, that figure that seems to linger on store shelves forever. Star Wars as a brand is know for making action figures of characters with mere seconds of screen time. These background characters unless very interesting or memorable often hang around store clogging up the pegs.
