Mysteria - Filmation Ghostbusters

I know most people are fans of one form of Ghostbusters or the other, but I always liked both the Real Ghostbusters and the Filmation Ghostbusters. Today we are taking a look at Mysteria,  one of the many henchmen that worked for Prime Evil. Mysteria is not really an action based character, combined with her physique and costume her figure was designed to be pretty static.

Mysteria wears a purple dress. Her arms are posed out at her side. Even though she has swivels at her shoulders, she's sculpted in a pretty pre-posed position. Like all the female characters from this toy line, Mysteria featured rooted hair. It's kind of a nice feature, but after close to 30 years it kind of looks like a rat's nest.

I had all the main characters from this line as a kid, and I'm very pleased to add Mysteria to my collection. I really need to track down the other ladies.


Sorry if I seemed to have dropped of the face of the Earth. I was bad this month... no posts earlier in the month For shame! You guys can always check out what I'm doing at The Youtube thing has been keeping me busy, and keeping my interest a little more than blogging. I don't want to make any promises that I can't keep... but I'll try to be better in the new year.

Marvel Legends Cable

He's a look at the Marvel Legends X-Men Wave: Cable. He comes with two guns, a strip of bullets, and a piece to the Collect-and-Connect Juggernaut. He's a nice looking figure, but I wish he was wearing his 90's X-Force uniform.

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Pop Vinyl - Black Ranger

We recently found the four new Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Pop Vinyl figures. Today we are taking a look at the Black Ranger. Zach or maybe Adam in the original MMPR uniform.

Dead-Eye Duck - Bucky O'Hare

Today we are taking a look at Dead-Eye Duck. Bucky O'Hare is one of the 90's toy lines I remember seeing in store but never picked up any of the figures. As a kid I was very focused on a few toy lines. I understood that if I wanted a robust selection of characters I needed to focus on one line vs having the main character from a dozen lines. I focused on He-Man & Thundercats. Later I transitioned into GI Joe and Star Wars. When Bucky O'Hare was out I was focused on Ninja Turtles. I always like the Bucky character designs and I pick them up when they are cheap at the flea market or toy shows.

Dead-Eye Duck is a four armed version of Daffy Duck without the speech impediment. He's got a short fuse and is a perfect shot. Dead-Eye is dressed in an orange flight suit with dark orange web gear and hat. He sports silver headphones and an eye-patch. Dead-Eye originally came with one silver gun for each one of his four hands. Since all my Bucky O'Hare toys are second hand, I don't own a single accessory.

Retro Con 2016 is this weekend in Oaks, Pennsylvania (Sept. 24th & 25th 2016) at the Greater Phully Expo Center. I enjoy this event every year. Hanging out with friends, buying toys, and meeting the celebrity guests. In the picture below, Baby Skeletor is with three of the items I hope to get signed at the show this year. Cam Clarke who voice Leonardo in the original Ninja Turtles cartoon will be there, I hope to get his to sign my 200x He-Man, who he also voiced.

The third toy in the photo is Krang from Ninja Turtles an the man behind his crazy voice, Pat Fraley will be there as well.

I'm getting super pumped. Other guests at the show include youtubers Jame Rolfe, the Angry Video Game Nerd and Andre Meadows from Black Nerd Comedy.

8-Bit Eric Vlog

I don't usually post a lot of other people's videos on here but I was hanging out with 8-Bit Eric yesterday. He's a video game based YouTuber from Texas. He's here in the Philadelphia area for a couple days so we got a chance to hang out and shoot some videos. I don't show up in his vlog until half way through because I was at work during the day. I show up around the 4 minute mark of the video. Eric was blown away by my buddy Paul's video game basement. This vlog doesn't do it justice. Paul is getting ready to be a vendor at Retro Con so there are boxes everywhere. (I will mention there is some potty mouth in this video)

Marvel Legends Phoenix

He's our revie of the Marvel Legends Phoenix figure from the Juggernaut Build-A-Figure wave. I try to avoid the larger scale figures like Marvel Legends and the Star Wars Black Series. I'm just a 4" action figure guys. Then they put of this X-Men wave and I caved. I haven't bought them all yet, but I haven't seen them all at retail yet.

The Ultimate Loot Crate (Dream Crate)

Over the past several years I've opened a lot of subscription boxes. Some off camera, but many of them on camera for my youtube channel. I recently was thinking about what would I put in my own personal Loot Crate subscription box if I could control what was inside.

Theme: Good & Evil 
Every subscription box needs a theme, but I didn't want to limit myself to just one word. I felt like Good & Evil is classic and avoids the word versus. Have you ever noticed that the most fun episodes of a TV show are when the Hero and the Villain have to work together to defeat some super evil power. Good and Evil don't always have to be at each other's throats.

T-Shirt: Soundwave by Geek Boy Press
Just like the monthly theme, you need a monthly t-shirt. I decided to go the evil root and I would include a shirt with art of the Transformers villain Soundwave by Geek Boy Press.

Funko Pop! Vinyl: Exclusive Black Power Ranger with Dragon Shield
The next item that always seems to fit into the subscription box formula is an item from Funko. I recently picked up the newest Mighty Morphin Power Ranger Pops and I really like them. So in my ultimate box there would be a fun variant of the Black Ranger wearing the Dragon Shield to represent good. I was so amazed when  Tommy lent Zack the shield 23 years ago.

Magnet: Star Wars - Han Solo in Carbonite
I think a cool looking Han Solo in Carbonite magnet would look great on the fridge. Aside from the look of Vader, the Stormtoopers, and the main droids, I feel like Han in Carbonite  is one of the most interesting and iconic designs in the Star Wars world. The Empire Strikes Back has one of the most interesting power dynamics between good and evil in film. From Luke's vision in the swamps of Dagobah to his final conflict on Bespin and the struggle the Rebels have with the Empire on Hoth and in the Cloud City.

Art: Kelley Jones: Batman & the Joker Art Print
I have always loved the work of comic book artist Kelley Jones. It's so rich with details but totally weird in a wonderful way. To go with the theme I'd pick something showcases Batman and the Joker. Below is an example of some awesome artwork he created with frequent collaborator Inker John Beatty.

Key Chain: Cobra Logo from GI Joe
The final item in my dream crate would represent the world of GI Joe. One of my all time favorite franchises. The action figures from the 80's have always been my favorite. The cartoon was great, unfortunately the movies have only been okay. We'll go with the Cobra logo because it's more interesting than the Joe's logo and we have to balance out the good guys.

Okay, now it's your turn. What theme and items would you choose if you were putting together your own Dream Crate subscription for Loot Crate? You can tell me about it in the comments below, or leave a link to your own post in the comments.

Flea Market Finds #43 (video #9)

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.

Golden Freddy review w/ MandoPony (Five Nights at Freddy's)

Five Nights at Freddy's is a super popular horror themed  video game. Inspired by the creepy animatronics at Chuck E. Cheese, Freddy and his friends do a lot more than sing and dance. I had the opportunity to shoot a review of the Golden Freddy figure by Funko with YouTuber MandoPony while at TooManyGames a few weeks ago.

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July everybody! I filmed a short Power Rangers Dino Charge adventure complete with some pyrotechnics. It's hard trying to set up the camera to get the explosion just right. I included last years clips from my old youtube channel as well.

Here's one of my favorite freeze frames from the video. Sledge looks awesome looking through the blast. It's so bright on the one side you can barley make out Ice Age or any of the other monsters on that side of the photo.

Master Sldege and his forces march through the flames of war in their never ending battle to steal the Dino Charge Power Rangers' Energems.

Action Figures with Spring Loaded Wings & Pixel Dan!

As a child of the 80's I always loved the spring loaded wing action feature incorporated into Silverhawks. Kenner used this feature several times including Golden Pharaoh from Super Powers and Shadow Wing Batman. Recently Playmates included a similar feature in Wingsuit Raphael from the new Ninja Turtles movie toy line. Last weekend at TooManyGames I got to hang out with Pixel Dan and we filmed a fun video talking about this feature. It was cool getting hang out with Dan again and I you guys enjoy the video we filmed.

Playtime Masters - He-Man Doumentary

When I first heard about Playtime Masters it was a passion project that was going to tell the story of the impact He-Man had on the fans in the 80's. I was very excited and talked with the people creating it. I was interviews and submitted many photographs and other items for possible inclusion in the film. I guess life gets in the way and I started to hear less and less about the project.

Then another similar project surfaced and I got a little nervous about these competing fan projects. Suddenly Playtime Masters came back as Crowd Funding project. Check out the little trailer that's been put together. There are 4 different photos of myself in the trailer. If you like this kind of project and want to support it great. If not, I'm just trying to help the filmmakers dreams come true by spreading the word.

King Zarkon - Voltron

After watching the new Netflix Voltron series I got thinking about this King Zarkon figure I picked up at a toy show not to long ago. As a kid I had a really nice die-cast Voltron and Hunk from the Panosh Place toy line. I've been slowly picking up the other figures from that line including the Pilots and a few bag guys. I'd really like the get the Castle of Lions some day.

King Zarkon is a pretty basic figure. He's very similar to the Emperor from the vintage Star Wars line. He has a swivel at the neck and both shoulders. Zarkon can bend at the waist and each of his legs are molded to look like half his robe.

Zarkon is a decent figure for the early 80's but by today's standards his sculpt is really lacking in details. He does have pretty decent paint applications with the details on his torso.

R/C Skateboarding Mikey - TMNT Jakks Pacific

Today we're taking a look at the new Remote Control Skateboarding Mikey from Jakks Pacific. This is a large figure attached to a R/C skateboard. You can make him go forward or pivot on the skateboard. As he pivots, Mikey causes the skateboard to turn. It's really well designed because he can even set the skateboard back up on the wheels after he wipes out. The remote control plays sounds and voice clips of Michelangelo from the Nickelodeon show. (Special thanks to Jakks Pacific for providing us with the review sample)

Captain America: Civil War featuring the Power Rangers is a goofy Action Figure Adventure where I just kind of spoofed a bunch of block buster movies that have been in news including Civil War, X-Men Apocalypses, and the upcoming Power Ranger movie.

Man-at-Arms - 200x Masters of the Universe

I really like the 200x redesigns of most of the Masters of the Universe character. Man-at-Arms is wearing his classic green and orange uniform. What a macho mustachioed hero. The anime styling never bothered me. The Four Horsemen put great detail into their sculpt. Between action features and the limited articulation the figures received they are better to look at than to play with. I really wish the cartoon series had lasted another season.

 Man-at-Arms comes with a mace similar to his vintage figure as well as his awesome arm cannon developed for the 200x redesign. His armor is much larger and bulkier, but it gives him a fun ascetic.

The back view of this figure really shows off how much amazing detail this figure has. From the rivets in his armor to the fur of his loin cloth. The Four Horsemen really are incredible sculptors.

Filmation Trap Jaw - MOTUC

Trap Jaw inspired by the Filmation cartoon He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, what a fun figure. I really liked the first release of Trap Jaw, but this cartoon accurate one really takes the cake.

Sy Snootles and the Rebo Band - Vintage Star Wars

I've got weird taste in Star Wars toys. My favorite figures are Max Rebo and Snaggletooth. I've got one Blue Snaggletooth and close to a dozen Red Sanggletooth figures. If I had to just collect one character it would be my boy Max. The blue elephant alien known the galaxy over for playing the organ is Max Rebo. He's from Return of the Jedi and came with his band mates Sy Snootles and Droopy McCool.  I had these guys loose with no accessories as a kid and loved them. Later I picked up a couple other sets in various levels of completeness.  Today I want to show off my boxed set.

I bought these guys at a toy show a while back and paid a pretty penny for them. I'm not a die-hard carded figure collector, but since I love this set so much and they come in interesting package I had to snatch them up.

The box isn't perfect, but it is over thirty years old. I just love that yellow display on the back of the package. I used to stare at the various card back images as a kid and wish I had them all. Some figures, especially the Power of the Force ones I had never even seen in person.

Silent Knight - Power Ranger Villain

While hanging out at MAGFest in Maryland we found this awesome retro Mighty Morphin Power Ranger villain figure. Silent Knight is an action figure bag guy based on a character from the Japanese version of the show that never made it to the American series. He would have fought the Alien Rangers at the end of the MMPR run.  This review features some fun bumpers from our YouTube friends The Game Chasers and After End Media.

Turtle Tactical Truck - TMNT: Out of the Shadows

The Turtle Tactical Truck is the Out of the Shadows "Party Wagon." With it's green and yellow paint schemes it hearkens back to the original van, but this time as a Garbage Truck it's got a fun new ascetic. As a fan of GI Joe, I want to call it the Triple T (an homage to Sgt. Slaughter's tank). There's plenty of room for the four Turtles and lots of action features to add play value. Check out my video review below.

Kraang - TMNT Out of the Shadows

I'm not sure if this is the one and only Kraang like in the old cartoon, or if there will be an army of these robots with brains in the belly's like the Nicktoon, but I can't wait to see him on the big screen. I think they did some interesting stuff with the figure, but I'm disappointing with the shoulder articulation.

Everything in a collection has a back story...

Have you ever looked at a retro item at a flea market or online and wondered, what's the story behind this item? I don't mean, why did they make this goofy Power Ranger toy or licensed Disney item. I mean like what's the story behind this particular action figure. Thousands just like it were made, but what was special about this one? Was it some kid's best birthday present ever? Could it have been the last toy someone ever got before they stopped playing with toys?

I was looking at some old cameras on and kind of thinking about who or what might have been photographed with those cameras. I do the same thing looking at old toys sometimes.

I love toys, and I have a lot of my original childhood toys, but there are also a lot that I sold as a kid. I sold my He-Man and Thundercats figures at yard sales to get cash to buy more GI Joe and Star Wars figures. Once I transitioned from playing with toys to collecting the I focused on a couple lines. Of course now I'm recollecting the toys I sold because I ran out of vintage GI Joe and Star Wars figures to collect.

So here is an example of the story behind a particular toy, the original Leonardo from TMNT.

For Christmas 1988 I asked for Ninja Turtles. I had never seen the show or read the comics. I saw a still image of them from the cartoon and frequently pretended to be one of the Turtlrs at recess with some older kids. I was in first grade and played with these three second graders who watched the show. They told me all about how the turtles each had their own names, masks, and weapons. Some how in my head I got all this information confused because on Christmas morning I was convinced that they put the wrong names on the package. The guy with swords was Michelangelo and the one with nunchucks was Leonardo. How could they mess up the toys like this? Turns out I was just a dumb kid who didn't know what he was taking about (this happened a lot. My lack of knowledge about Darth Vader cause a 20 minute argument one Thanksgiving).

Anyway, after I figured out that Leonard was in fact is the blue masked turtle with swords and went through several years as a big time TMNT fan I moved on to Toy Biz X-Men figures and the Turtles were sold to help continue to grow my GI Joe collection.

My whole family was selling stuff at the Dublin Flea Market (an annual tradition where I grew up and a fundraiser for the local fire company). I was probably in 6th grade at this point. A family we knew stopped by our table and the parents decided to get their son some Ninja Turtles. They bought my Party Wagon and the four original Turtle figures. My mom frequently watched their son during the day if they had work schedule conflicts and once in a while I babysat him on a Friday night if they went out.

So a couple times when I was in middle school I played Ninja Turtles with this little guy with my actual original figures. It was fun revisiting my old toys, probably one of the first times I felt nostalgic. Who know if that kid still has them or if they were sold again at a yard sale.

What I do know is that a couple years later, a friend of mine from church was thinning out his childhood possessions as he got ready to leave for college. At this point I was in high school, maybe two years behind him. He was hanging on to his Star Wars figures and Transformers, but he gave me a small collection of Ninja Turtles that he didn't want anymore. In that collection was an original Leonardo. I haven't seen my friend Kirk in probably twelve years (he never moved back home after college), I don't even know how to contact him (can't find him on facebook) but his childhood Leonard is standing on a shelf in my collection.

GIJoe Lunch Box - 1992

At a recent toy show I picked up this fabric GIJoe Lunch Box dated 1992. It features characters from a couple different years. Sonic Fighter Law, General Hawk. Snake Eyes v4 . and Eco-Warrior Flint. The art style is a little odd, almost making it look like a knock-off.

This lunch box was produced by Lunch Bunch. I have several metal and plastic lunch boxes in my collection from the 70's and 80's, This is the first soft lunch box I've ever purchased.

Here is a closer shot of the art work. Law wearing is Military Police helmet, armed with a knife seems to be the most out of place. His style just doesn't seem the same as the rest.

Inside the lunch box you can see there is a thermos which features no GIJoe branding as well as a plastic divider.

Luke & Dak at the Battle of Hoth

The snow here has melted quite a bit, but it's still fun to look outside and see snow on the ground. This snow storm the only toy stuff I did in the snow was my recent Power Ranger videos, but today I want to show off some photos I took previously of Luke Skywalker, Dak Ralter, and their Rebel Snow Speeder.

Luke Skywalker and his gunner Dak Ralter head into battle with the Empires ground assault force. Along with their fellow Rebel Pilots they will be up against several Imperial walker which sport strong armor and a massive amount of firepower.

Our brave heroes take a direct hit to the rear of the ship while on an a attack pass under the massive walkers. Luke looses control of his speeder and the craft impacts into the dense snow of Hoth. Once he has the cockpit open, Luke crawls out of the ship.

Luke notices that his friend Dak has made no effort to leave the ship even though it is beginning to fill with smoke. Dak, Dak! he shouts as he tries to undo the gunners safety harness. Luke now positive of his friends fate he steps away from the ship because even though they are grounded they are still in the path of the AT-AT Walker's attack.

Luke takes his lightsaber hilt off his belt and formulates a plan on how he can take down the mighty walker without his speeder.

Dragon Walker - MOTU

The Dragon Walker is another really wacky mechanical vehicle from the Masters of the Universe line like the Attack Track.There is a gear in the bottom of the dragon head that  moves along a track in the base. When the head gets to the end of the track it rotates the entire base. This motion creates a very slow and bizarre motion.

The Dragon Walker is such a strange mix of technology and fantasy, it would only fit in the Master of the Universe line. I loved this toy as a kid and I had an awesome poster of Battle Armor He-Man riding the Dragon Walker in my room as a kid. The coat of arms on the side of the vehicle is kind of interesting.

I did pinch my hand in the gears as a kid trying to make the Dragon Walker "walk" without batteries. It was kind of traumatic as a little kid.

Star Wars The Force Awakens Action Figure Adventures

Today's video is the Star Wars The Force Awakens Action Figure Adventures episode   So when we shoot toy reviews we often include skits. I planned from the start to string the skits together to make one story, but didn't have the story planned because I didn't know what toys I'd find before the movie came out. So this was sort of my prediction of the film based on the trailer and the toys that I bought.

It's pretty wacky, but was fun to film. I was impressed at how well the individual pieces fit together. You can see my First Order Army grow as the story goes on. I was shocked the so many of the vehicles weren't really in the film

Rampage (Heavy Metal) on Snow Patrol - GIJoe

He's a couple photos of Rampage (who I refer to as Heavy Metal) out in the snow. I took these photos a couple winters ago, but since today was the first snow we've had that accumulated I figured I post a snow picture. We didn't get much and it's pretty much gone already

This figure was a Target Exclusive and came with the R.H.I.N.O. vehicle in the Rise of Cobra line. His entire get up looks like it's inspired by the old school character Heavy Metal, which is why I bought him and refer to him as Heavy Metal. He's got a nice removable helmet and submachine gun.

The figure's vest can be removed  He also comes with a small pistol that fits in the holster on his side and two clip that can be attached to the machine gun (one at a time). I always like the black leather jacket over the green uniform. I just always liked that look.

Next To You (Music Video) by The Noise FM

If you've read much of this blog you know I'm all about Action Figures and Stop Motion Animation. The Noise FM, and indie band from Chicago made a music video for their cover o the Police song Next To You using toys and stop motion. This video feels like an episode of the Action Figure Adventures series. The animation gets really fun towards the end for the climax. Apparently the video was part of a charity event around Christmas time called Noise for Toys.

Slave-1 - Kenner Star Wars

Boba Fett's ship, Slave-1 has been a item on my toy wishlist for decades. As a kid, my best friend and  I made up all kinds of crazy extended adventures for the characters from Star Wars. Toys like the Rebel Transport or Slave-1 could be a huge part of our fictional Star Wars universe even though they only had moments of screen time in the Trilogy.

On the rate occasion I'd see on for sale as a kid it would either be insanely expensive or a broken shell. So I finally added one to my collection over the summer, and I couldn't be happier about it. It's not a perfect specimen, but the little play wear adds to the authenticity of this great ship.

The ship features rotating wings, movable guns, a loading ramp, a removable panel and a cool tilting drivers seat. There is a handle on the bottom to help hold it on flight position.

My favorite features as a kid was the included Han Solo in Carbonite block accessory. It's really to short (notice Han has no feet) but that's okay.

Slime Drones - Realm of the Underworld

Look out, Zoloworld has released crazy translucent Slime Drones for their Realm of the Underworld toy line. The figures all come with glittery accessories and a packet of slime. Check out the next segment of the Realm of the Underworld stop motion animated Action Figure Adventures and my review of these three waves of figures.

Below is a selection of photos of some of the many Slime Drone figures.

Ramyr and Stygian Stare Ulysses
Ramyr is a yellow dragon type creature and the black Ulysses figure 
is under the spell of some Stygian swamp gas.

Toxic Terror Hercules & Grooze-Sum
This green Hercules has been slimed! The translucent red Grooze-Sum is reminiscent
 of the original Acromancer figure. I really like the black bone paint apps.

The Last Decedent with amazing glow in the dark paint.

Molten Meltdown Acromancer & Corpse Tooth
The Acromancer in creepy yellow plastic and the Archfield in awesome green and yellow.
 Corpse Tooth is one of my personal favorites.

The Swamp Drones - these guys are shape-shifters that can appear as heroes or villains. Taking advantage of the interchangeable parts, these ROTU figures each come with multiple heads including the heroes faces like Hercules and Krysis as well as evil heads like the Archfiend skull.
