Power Rangers by Super7

Holy Smokes! Super7 is going to be making Power Ranger Toys! I made two videos on the topic. The first video had a lot of speculation on my parts, but I've found some images online and Super7 Owner Brian Flynn games some details in an interview with Pixel Dan.

Top 10 GI Joe Figures of 1983

 Here we have the second video in this series of Top 10 GI Joe Polls. I plan to release one every other week. That gives me time to get the figures together to film B-Roll and edit. I had a lot of fun filming these with David Croft. Let me know who your favorite figure from 1983 was?

I had a lot of 1983 figures as a kid, but they were all 2nd hand from a neighbor kid or picked up at yard sales. There are a lot of good figures to pick from.

Snake Eyes v4 1991 - Christmas Memories

Check out this review of the 1991 Snake Eyes v4 release. I got this Snake Eyes along with Destro v3 for the same Christmas. I love posting videos that contain home movie footage of myself opening Christmas presents from back in the day. Did anyone have this version of Snake Eyes? This was the last regular Snake Eyes before Ninja Force. This Snake Eyes is dressed in blue, black, and grey and decked out with orange accessories.

Time Traveling GI Joe Figures - Destro v3

For Christmas 1991 I got two brand new GI Joe figures... but one of them was released in 1992? What's going on? This video contains vintage home movie footage of Christmas morning and I also do a review to this 1992 Destro v3 figure which I've had since I was a kid. He's a pretty classic looking figure with a bulkier 90's GI Joe torso and a gimmicky weapon.

Jake's Toy Show Haul

Jake's Flea Market, in Barton PA, occasionally hold a small toy show in a pole barn. Back in July my buddies and I went and I never got around to editing my haul. But finally here it is. I mostly bought GI Joe and Ninja Turtles items. I also picked up a few miniatures from Warhammer 40k. I think the best pick ups from the show were the four Toon Turtles.

Sorry I've basically been MIA from the blog. If you've followed Action Figure Adventures for a while, you've probably noticed I shifted most of my attention to YouTube. I mostly just promote videos here. But I was shocked to see it had been so long since I posted.

I wanted to say "hi", I'm still alive. My job has been virtual for a while now and I'm spending a lot of time with my girl friend and her two kids. I recently got a new computer and I'm learning new editing software. I've been to a couple tiny toy shows during Covid, but all the big Cons and Shows have been canceled. 

I hope everyone is staying safe.
