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.

MOTU Movie He-Man & Skeletor

Based on the 80's live action Masters of the Universe movie we have He-Man & Skeletor. These figures look fantastic and appear to have jumped right off the screen. They are part of the final wave of figures from the Masters of the Universe Classic line.
