Patraw 11-09-2009 09:23 AM

Here's some more random loose stuff I bought, or was given, this past week:

Transformers Beast Wars Depthcharge. Missing his accessories, but otherwise intact. Arguably one of the worst examples of kibble ever--getting him to stand is no easy feat with all that crap on his back. Pretty cool figure overall though.

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y19...epthcharge.jpg

Two Starscreams, Transformers Armada and a Burger King movie version (with battle damage chest action, a la MOTU). The Energon one is missing numerous parts, most noticeably the wings, but the electronic sounds still work. Oddly enough, even without all the parts, the jet mode still looks decent.

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y19...rscreamduo.jpg

Burger King Fantastic Four figures, Doctor Doom, Silver Surfer, Mr. Fantastic, and the Human Torch. One of my nieces gave me the Thing months ago too, but I can't remember where I put it. The Silver Surfer is almost impossible to get to stand with that crazy pose. I love this version of Victor Von Doom--the huge fists just suit him somehow, and I like that they went the extra mile and vac-metallized his face.

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y19...rtap/FF4bk.jpg

And, continuing with the FF4 theme, a large, kiddy-style Thing figure. He's goofy looking, but I adore him.

Some random, camouflaged, African American 12" G.I.JOE. I don't know if the pants belong to him or not, but he came with them. If anybody knows more about him, please share (I think he's just a generic one, rather than a specific RAH character, but I may be wrong).

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y19...ouflagejoe.jpg

No idea (Robotech maybe?). He's some kind of Power Ranger-esque Police dude. The copyright date is 1988 Toho/Takara. If anybody knows who, or what, this is, please let me know. It's got a mighty impressive amount of articulation for a late 80s figure, and has some peg holes for attaching pieces of armor/accessories.

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y19...pacepolice.jpg

Pocahontas' plush raccoon from the Disney movie of the same name (I think the animal's name is Miko, but I don't remember). His hands are velcro and stick together, and, if you squeeze his belly, there's a mechasim inside that emits a raccoon-like chittering sound. I wasn't all that fond of the movie (not that I got to be objective about it when I watched it, as I was in a Native American studies class in college at the time, and the only reason the professor had us watching it was so that we could identify and pick apart the negative stereotypes), but I do like raccoons.

I was lucky, I had nothing to do on halloween night and went to walmart.
I bought out the stores supply lol well for friends of mine anyway.
Not like I'm a scalper or anything so they're going to other collectors for the stores price.
But if I see them again I'll give you a text.
They only have power girl left.

Spitfire 11-11-2009 03:25 AM

Hey thanks. That's mighty nice of you. I've been wanting that Man-Bat.

He is the only one they didn't have, so he's on my look out list for sure.

I'm now collecting a new series of mini Madballs that just came out here in Spain. There are 10 of them, but they come in closed packets, so you don't know wich one you're getting. I've got 8 so far.

Wes 01-14-2010 09:13 PM

Wait, what? New Madballs? I REQUIRE PICTURES! Do you mean these?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=300353557146

Weird...

And that's pretty cool, Jer -- I've never seen the Thanagar set! I'd actually be tempted to buy that, but then I'm a sucker for Shayera...

I bought Juku Couture Hayley today. :tlol:

Toonami Tom 01-18-2010 10:24 AM

My most recent action figure purchase is 'The Dark Knight' Movie Masters Harvey Dent. He is 6" tall, fully articulated, and will fit in nicely with my other Dark Knight action figures. I hope he arrives in the mail soon. I think this may be the first figure made of Harvey Dent, before he became Two-Face.

I bought him from:

Randomly found this at a local used bookstore. I'm trying to cut way back on toy purchases, but found I just couldn't say no to this for 4 bucks.

Where did you find him for $80?

Patraw 01-26-2010 09:08 AM

Spawn Series 12 "The Heap" (1998). This is loose/second-hand. Some of the junk that's supposed to be on his body is missing/broken off (a shovel handle, vertebrae column, pipes, several pieces of broken glass, etc). I'm contemplating sculpting/fabricating replacements to fix him up properly. Seeing as how he's a creature composed of garbage anyway, it's not as big a deal as it would be for other figures that he's missing a few details here and there. I always wanted this guy, but never got one till now--one of McFarlane Toy's better monster figures in my opinion.

Toy Biz Spider-Man Stunt System "Slide 'N Trap Post Office" (2005). Still haven't decided yet if I'm going to leave it hanging MOC on the walls with all of my other unopened toys or not. This isn't the type of toy I usually purchase, Marvel Comics characters or otherwise, but I got it for free. I might be able to use the little, unarticulated Kraven The Hunter for something or another . . .

Toonami Tom 01-30-2010 08:04 PM

Cool figures, Patraw. That's an interesting feature Spider-Man has, with the magnets. Although, his lack of hands doesn't look right to me.

I went to Toys R Us today, and I bought a Spider-Man from Spider-Man classics, Shocker from Spectacular Spider-Man, and Original Spock from Star Trek. My favorite of my new figures would be Shocker.

I considered getting him as well. Which Batman is that? I like him.

VaughnMichael 02-27-2010 06:31 PM

Just got Eclipso and Dr. Mid-nit from my local wal-mart, it's about time a store starts stocking these damn figures lol

Doc_ock_4mugen 03-15-2010 01:56 PM

Does ordering from mattycollector.com count as a purchase? if so, then reissue Stratos... (missed out on Mossman and his pine scent.)

Damien Kash 03-18-2010 03:57 PM

I just bought kanu Unchou from Ikki Tousen(Figma)
and Kenshiro from fist of the north star(Revoltech)

Found them for a really nice price too :D

Sorry Wes, I forgot about this thread. Yeah those are the ones I meant. I'm only missing Flea Bag now. Those little ones are very cool.

Ninjinister 03-26-2010 09:32 PM

I don't have any pics (yet), but all of the Marvel Universe and associated figures (Wolverine Origins, Spider-Man, Iron Man 2) have been on sale/clearance in these parts for a while, so I've been nabbing some of them on occasion, since I thought they were way too expensive at their standard price point. I just wish there were still some Wolverine & The X-Men figs still on shelves.

The latest batch included Hand Ninja (MU), Mark 01 Iron Man (IM2), and Toxic Blast Venom (SM), which, strangely, not only comes with an axe made out of webbing (!!), but appears to be Eddie Brock Venom, despite the character art on the packaging plainly showing the Mac Gargan version.

Digital Ghost 04-14-2010 06:26 AM

From eBay and various toy shops:

McFarlane Movie Maniacs RoboCop
McFarlane 18" Freddy Krueger

I scored it on eBay for a mere twenty-five bucks. :D

Digital Ghost 06-13-2010 06:22 AM

Been a Bat of a week, I tell ya! ;)

DC Direct Series 6:
Mind you, I only wanted the Batman figure but for what one of these costs at my local comic shop ($25) I snagged all four on eBay for the same price.

My 'Long Halloween' collector set arrived this week:
I was amazed to see that they've resculpted the Gorilla-esque head.
This is one of my favorite Batman figures.

http://www.cooltoyreview.com/TF2008/...H/IMG_3943.JPG


I've wanted this DC Superheroes Batman for some time, so I figured what the hell.

Digital Ghost 06-13-2010 07:03 AM

Almost forgot, I picked up a BioShock Big Daddy figure, as I love the game and wanted to get free shipping on Amazon. (Orders over $25) :lol:

He's $20 on Amazon, and $35 at my local comic shop. :ohwell:

Damien Kash 07-12-2010 01:06 PM

Got TRU Force Unleashed sets 1&2
The 4inch Prince of Persia figures.
Crimson Viper from sf4.

I also got Oola with Salacious Crumb(I've wanted those Kenner figures for a long time,finally got'em) :D

discordiatookie 07-13-2010 11:41 AM

Been an avid collector of Pete Fowler's Monsterisms for a few years now. Got myself quite a collection but I started it with what is classed as vol 2, having totally missed vol 1. They are pretty rare, and whilst I do regular searches on ebay, they very rarely pop up, and when they do they cost an arm and a leg. (This, I believe is actually vol 1.5 - different colourways - but that is not the kind of thing I mind). So much to my surprise, last night I won this for £51.00. May seem expensive to some, but I would probably've paid twice that if need be. I've wanted these for so long. Anyway, can't wait to actually receive them!

Oh, I was expecting something official, with a GL logo and everything, but that does look like a GL costume and damn it, it's pretty spiffy anyway!

Kudos to you!
