Best of luck picking them up. The 4" variety are a nice little adventure into variants too!
Thanks adssse, its quite the adventure collecting everything all over again :D
Hot off the delivery truck! Picked up an army of the unproduced translucent red Lion-O's and a Slithe. I was super lucky to find these and I am extremely grateful to add these to the collection!
Where did you find them? I've not seen any outside of China.
they came from China.
Cool, fingers crossed you can find a Tygra to go with them.
Yeah I would love to add a Tygra and a clear Mumm-ra. I'm willing to trade 1 or 2 of these.
Unfortunatley I don't have any spares of Mumm-Ra and Tygra, and you're the only other peron I've seen to have any of these ureleased figures.
Oh man! I have been wanting one of these for quite a while now! Very nice score!
My newest additions are both from the pocket money range. Both loose but fully working and very clean. Safe shot darts and power booster. Very happy with this find came in a job lot.
Got the Panthro Dorbz and it looks like Big Bad are getting ready to send out my Panthro and Cheetara Vynl 2 Pack.
edit: nvm, went spelunking and figured out that these are from the aborted Bandai classics line.
Hope you like a good, but short story.
I bought 40 mint condition ThunderCats Burger King cup/coin banks complete with lids a little while back on e-Bay. They're in a shoebox in my closet waiting for something to happen, but what I don't know.
The man I bought them from said that his neighbor was a manager at the Burger King in his town. In the back of the store, some time after the ThunderCats kid's meal promotion was over, the neighbor found a whole, unopened case of them in the storage room of the 'King and took them home. Years later the manager was cleaning his garage, found the box of cups, and was going to throw them away- it was something to that effect.
Cringe worthy just the same.
e-Bay guy was given the case, and he sold them. I think I bought the first round of cups (five) for fifteen dollars including shipping. After asking if he'd sell me multiples, he listed a special auction where I could buy as many as I wanted, which was generous. I did kind of get gouged on shipping, but it was completely worth it and I was absolutely happy to pay it just to get those cups, and in such terrific shape.
If only I could find someone with a case of the lenticular lens rings....
I was feeling nostalgic and bought an old ViewMaster on Ebay, which came with the seller's full library.
ViewMasters are a very weird piece of my childhood that I don't think any kids today would understand, what with smart phones, VR headsets, and everything else. But man, they really remind me of a simpler time of when all I needed to do to pass the time was look into some toy goggles and flip the switch to see new pictures to get a full story.
Anyways, in this dude's library, there was a set for Thundercats, which was a nifty telling of "Spitting Image", one of my favorite episodes. It was very cool to experience the episode again in a different way.
His library also included He-Man, Real Ghostbusters, MASK, Ninja Turtles (cartoon & the 2nd movie), the Dick Tracy movie, Jurassic Park, and a bunch of DC superhero stuff.
It was a nerdy purchase, but one that I am very happy with.
While searching and hoping to get lucky and find a Luna Lasher Mumm-Ra, i happened to come across a complete Unitoys Mumm-Ra. Easily my biggest score or second biggest score of all my years collecting. Both happened this year and the Unitoys Mumm-Ra happened last week and just arrived today. I am still shocked.
Nice find. I have a couple of Luna Lashers I'm in the market to trade if you're interested.
I am definitely interested. I'll send you a message!
I just picked up a Super7 Mumm-Ra, but I'm a bit disappointed in the soft goods cape - I was under the impression it was a silk material that would lay easily, especially at $50. It's a very stiff and papery feeling with the wire running through it. The accessories are cool, but the fact that the rubber cape looks better really bothers me for the price.
