action figures and other toys


#41

I’d forgotten about the Aliens toys. I had the Bull and Gorilla figures. Here’s the Gorilla:

His whole head was a soft plastic/rubber squirt toy with his inner mouth being the nozzle. Great figure for the bath tub.

I also had this Predator figure:

I actually still have him somewhere but I’ve not been able to hang onto any of the accessories over the years. First I lost the gun, then the mask and then eventually the spear (though I did manage to keep the spear for a really long time).


#42

Yeah, I still have a bunch of the Aliens. Always appreciated the Scorpion Alien’s gimmick being exploding. Not a single marine though, because did anyone really care about them? Except the aforementioned Atax of course with his Alien power suit. But I had the E-Frames from Exosquad for that.

They make toys for M rated video games


#44

At least Microsoft had the decency to wait until they had aT-rated Halo, Activision > : (

Gunpla guys

Transformers and Voltron were too expensive when I was a kid, but I did have a couple of Starriors. This was my favorite one:

I also had one or two Zoids. Like Starriors, these featured a little metallic guy in a cockpit. Some of the larger ones even had multiple pilots.


#47

oh, i think i might have gotten some starriors second hand off a market stall as a kid, not knowing what they were called :open_mouth:

I just learned that they still make Zoids, but they are now advanced construction kits that take more effort to assemble. Which sounds like a lot of fun. I’ve always liked snap-together models that do not require glue.

They also have figures that you don’t assemble, and some of them look pretty nice.

I don’t know why they all seem to be either lions or dinosaurs, though.


#49

they’re super expensive though ;_;

the zoids that were on sale in the uk during the 90s had a slug among them, which must be one of the worst plamo kits of all time


#50

All the various ligers are because they were the protagonist machines in all the 00s anime. Dinosaurs becasue dinosaurs are cool.
I doubt the HMM line will get to some of the more uncommon sorts of Zoids though.

I love getting new figmas and revoltechs. Figures with rope accessories are a favorite of mine.

I like to imagine Link as some kind of copy cat without an original idea or skill but pulls it off well enough to get praise from his audience.


#52

I like to think he hoards flowers


#53

who is that?


#54

all dicks are wardicks


#55

Transformers Titans Return Deluxe Twinferno nee Doublecross


#56

Any idea what this guy is? His only markings are “B.03,” “USA,” and “China.” I scored him at a flea market a couple weekends ago. He looks like a Digimon monster and is (barely) articulated like an old Battle Beast.

I’m locked out of work right now. Excuse my dusty car.


#57

That’s the Death Army from Mobile Fighter G Gundam in SD form. No idea what line it’s from tho


#58

I never would have guessed Gundam! Thanks! It was in a box with a bunch of typical 80s and 90s American action figures, so definitely the odd mech out.


#59

got this ko today, missing one swivel on the legs, but its great

Going through this thread I’m pretty sure that up until my mid-20s the only reason I cared about the Alien franchise at all was because of the action figures.
