Christmas Time!

Another year is wrapping up and I've been bad about posting videos on my YouTube channel for the past six months, but I have been horrible about blogging. I really do apologize to any of the regular readers of Action Figure Adventures. I used to write in-depth descriptions of toys in my collection and post some pretty decent photos of action figures. Lately I've just been posting links to videos as SEO Toy Review took off. I've been distracted due to stuff in my personal life and the channel hasn't had the growth it had in the past. This is all combined with a little bit of what I call "toy depression". Since the closing of Toys R Us, I have found it harder to get excited about new releases or to even find them.

Anyway, I put together an SEO Toy Review Christmas Special again this year. Unfortunately it's not a fun live stream like it was in the past. I did get some clips submmisoons from friends like Long's Toys, the Game Chasers, Retro Now, and HoodedCobraCommander788. The Special also features clips from the charity event called Gift For Gamers.  I hope you guys enjoy it and have a Happy Holiday Season.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Christmas Toy Memories 1988

At Christmas time 1988 I had never seen the Ninja Turtles cartoon, but I wanted the action figures so bad. At school I pretended to be a Ninja Turtles with other kids at recess. The other kids had seen the show and taught me ALL about it! Unfortunately I was a little confused.

Each lion is fully articulated, armed with a unique projectile launcher, and can combine to form a 16" Voltron. As you work your way thought the sequence of combining all the lions you can hear up to 50 sounds! Pretty impressive. Plus the new super charged look of Voltron is pretty awesome.

GI Joe Slaughter's Marauders

We are getting close to the final Joe Con and I've been posting GI Joe reviews featuring the Slaughter's Marauders on SEO Toy Review lately. As a kid I was a huge fan of Sgt. Slaughter and I thought it was pretty cool that he had his own sub-team of GI Joe members. Since the theme of this years GI Joe Collector's Convention is Slaughter's Marauders vs Python Patrol, I'm reviewing the heroes that inspired a lot of the Con Exclusives.

Flea Market Finds - Toy Biz X-Men

Last weekend I went to a community yard sale in the neighborhood one of my best friends lived in when were were in high school and college. I met up with a couple buddies and my friend's parents house and we walked around. It wasn't a real great sale... mostly house hold junk, but there was one person selling some Toy Biz X-Men figures. Check out my haul in the video below.

Rosanne (sitcom) Canceled.

As a kid growing up in a blue color house I always enjoyed the show Rosanne. The family on the show was way crazier and more dysfunctional than my own, but I for some reason related to the show. The Mom taking care of the kid while the Dad was out working with his hands or hiding in the garage. My own Mother despised the show because she never liked Rosanne's crude humor and would probably bring up the time Rosanne screamed the National Anthem if I were to mention the comedian to her today.

I always enjoyed the cast, especially the Dad. I don't know if it was his role on Rosanne or his early 90's films (Matinee, King Ralph, The Babe) that made him one of my favorite actors, but I love John Goodman. As I got older John Goodman kept popping up in movies I loved, especially the Cohen Brother's films.

I watched the original run very faithfully through season seven. At that point I was in middle school and I guess distracted by other shows and had other things to do. I'm kind of glad I missed out on a lot of the crazy stuff when the show "jumped the shark" at the end.

When ABC announced the show was coming back with the original cast and they were retconning some stuff from the end of the series I was very excited. I've watch the recent season and really enjoyed it. Just as I have enjoyed re-watching old seasons over the years. Unfortunately when I got home from work today and jumped online I found out the 2nd season of the relaunch has been canceled due to racist tweets sent by Rosanne. Proving my Mom right once again that Rosanne is crude and not funny. I'll miss the new version of the show and I wish the cast and crew good luck with the next step in their careers. I know John Goodman will land on his feet, but many of the other actors are far less marketable and a steady gig was great for them.

It is interesting that we live in a world were you can publish your thoughts to millions of people with a couple clicks... and sometimes there are consequences for what you say.
