I know Paw Patrol is geared at a very different audience than this blog usually attracts, but as a kid I remember meeting characters at malls and grand openings of restaurants. I always thought that kind of stuff was really cool. Over the weekend I attended a the Paw Patrol Roll Patrol Road Tour, a huge event put on by Spin Master Toys. I went to the Road Tour with some friends and family and just had a really good time. I was really impressed with the detail that went into designing all the attractions. I think the Paw Patrol Roll Patrol Road Tour is this generations Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Coming Out of their Shells Tour or He-Man Power Tour. Just a really fun way for kids to experience their favorite tv/toy characters come to life.

Last weekend was the New Jersey Collectors Convention (NJCC). As usual I picked up a bunch of vintage action figures. Time to take a look at my haul! Power Rangers, Thundercats, COPS, Army Ants, and more.

Wow, I got a great deal on a ton of NECA action figures at NJCC last weekend. The New Jersey Collector's Convention did something a little different this time with Boss Fight Studios showing off their Bucky O'Hare toys and NECA holding a warehouse overstock sale.

Bucky O'Hare is the fearless Captain of the space ship the Righteous Indignation. Bucky O' Hare and his crew are getting all new action figures from Boss Fight Studios. These figures are awesome modern updates to the original Hasbro figures. Wave One contains Bucky O'Hare and Jenny. Wave Two will include repaints, Stealth Mission Bucky and Astral Projection Jenny. Wave 3 will include Deadeye Duck and another figure. Boss Fight Studios hinted that the evil Toad Stormtrooper will be coming eventually at their event at the New Jersey Collectors Convention. It was great getting to talk with the people from Boss Fight Studios about their new Bucky O'Hare figures at NJCC.

Check it out, San Diego Comic Con Exclusive Ninja Turtles by NECA Toys. These SDCC Exclusive Ninja Turtles are some of the best "cartoon" Ninja Turtles ever made. What a great set! I would have loved these figures as a kid. Can't wait to review the bad guys from this set.

Today we are reviewing a Marvel Legends figure of Iceman. He's my favorite X-Men, but this action figure is only okay. Nothing really wrong with him, but also nothing real interesting. I would have liked to have seen him come with "energy" effects. Iceman does come with an arm to the build-a-figure Juggernaut.

Paul and I filmed this Vintage GI Joe Collection Sort. A co-worker game me this box from her attic full of her son's toys from the 80's. This collection includes a MOBAT, VAMP, Hiss and more. There are also some figures, but most of them had broken rubber bands.

These 2" Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles started showing up at Dollar General a little while back. I think about ten years ago I bought some of these carded in single packs. Now they are offered in 2-packs with weapons. They offer four sets: Michelangelo & Casey Jones, Raphael & Foot Soldier, Leonardo & Splinter, and Donatello & Shredder. They are fun sets and I really enjoy them with their little accessories. I previously posted about the older (but almost identical figures) from Dollar General here on Action Figure Adventures.
