Yeah you're right Steve, I didn't realize until now that his look changed after the Muckman figure.
it is from this line of wrestling champions figures:
i am planning on unloading about 90% of my "non-vinyl american toys" now. so if anyone is looking for anything in particular. let me know. pretty much everything except my remco stuff, motu (but i do have some doubles available), and my tmnt merdude are ready for new homes...
oh yeah, and i am also open to trades for remco figures (most he-man type stuff, but there are a lot of remco stuff that i am open to) or motu figures that i don't have...
Scareglow drops today.
I totally forgot about those. You know, I don't even remember what the figure looked like, but I did have at least one of them when I was a kid. I remember because they came with metal molds to use with the Creepy Crawlers oven thing to make accessories for the figures. I can remember the belt I made more than the figure itself.
Oh hell yeah! Bought four. 'Cause I'm a moron.
This is my favorite non-vinyl American toy:
Oh, well, yeah...
Got five of those, actually! 'Cause I'm brilliant!
Man, I can't wait to get my hands on some Nekos... both rubber data storing AND vinyl.
Some pretty rad vintage graffiti-style customs from my friend, HexEvo:

wow, um, wow
Pretty cool custom-flocked MOTUC Beastman.
I wish they'd release one like this.
Custom flocking!? That sounds badass!
How does one go about doing that? Is this, like, a common craft-store type of thing?
You can get flocking from a lot of craft places, or places for model trains, etc.
Kinda like mossman. If I remember right, the original MOTU mossman was the beastman sculpt(including head) but flocked green. That flocking looks really good.
I've always wondered how easy it would be to remove flocking. I think it could be done with some elbow grease, I just wondered if there was some kind of adhesive used and how hard it would be to wipe off.
It was. MOTU rehashed a lot of body parts/heads/weapons etc. It reminds me of what some fight figs do now.
my mom found some of my old stuff in storage from when I was a lad and I always remember goofy and pluto were some o my favorites
Goofy is rad as hell. Funny how our aesthetics in toys starts so young.
Grabbed these this weekend at my favorite toy store. One is a bootleg Madball from Taiwan the other is a punk dude who transforms into a rat, from the Bettlejuice cartoon. I also nabbed a Muckman finally and some small Ghostbusters ghosts.
yes joel its crazy this life we live
oh and the rat punk guy is great!..I forget about all the lines from the 8o's like beetlejuice
I got these bill and ted toys that are so weird
that bill and ted set is awesome!
i also really dig the beetlejuice figures.
my fav has always been the black/white striped suit beetlejuice with the removable carousel head!!!
Just found these in my closet at my parents house. Now I just need some clear vinyl toys to stuff them in. Anyone remember Monster in my Pocket? This is all of series 1, I really liked these as a kid. I was however a nerd and always put them back in their package. One even has the price on it from kmart...a whole $9.99. I wish toys were still that cheap.
i know i have a tonnnn of those back at my parents house that i'm going to find one day and be super excited. I even have a bunch of the issues of the comic book and used to watch the tv show and play the nes game hahaha.
i had completely forgot about the fact that the game, came with a special monster until i just searched for the box art! Wonder if i still have that one kicking around....
when i was in London a few years back i saw that they were re-making them and picked up a couple packs of them for a friend, pretty neat little guys.
