They were expensive! I only had the handheld double dragon and begged for it 

I remember on comic book men in like 2013 the only season I ever watched they said NM went for $3000.

I can't imagine

Yeah  it's one of those things that were expensive to buy when you were a kid, and more expensive now that you're an adult.

tell me about it, and then never play it and keep it in a glass case away from dust, decisions decisions lol 

I don't do many games, I bought the mini's just to have something and reminisce :) 

It's a lot of good stuff in arcades too, with the Arcade 1up's of TMNT, which is still on my wishlist

I’ve been out of comics a while and went full Joe recently.   I’m going for the full 83-94 figure set with full cards.  No straight arms because young Boboset here hated them growing up.
 

Some of the 94 figures are pretty cool.  
 

Here are some of my pick ups from this week. All but Effects and Duke were MOC.

Cobra Blackstar is pretty desirable.  I really like it.

Me too.  I think that is the second best figure from 94 behind Shipwreck.

Techno Viper V2 may be my fav from that year.

I have a weird joy for Ice Cream Soldier.  He's one that people either love or hate.

I own neither of those.  I do want them.  That Techno Viper looks really great.  
 

Ice Cream Solider looks pretty cool too.  I think people get hung up on the bright colors and the name.  I don’t mind either.  The history behind the name is pretty neat and Eco Warriors is one of my favorite subsets so clearly bright colors don’t bother me one bit.

Accidentally posted this in the garage sale thread :facepalm:

I've got a few things in the works. One pick-up which I'll have to share at a much later date is a vintage display that I am going to repurpose as part of an elaborate custom display idea. Still hasn't arrived, and it's a beast, so I don't want to jinx myself even talking about it, but it's pretty cool and I've only ever seen one other.

For now, I added a resin hardcopy from the 1998 Kenner Legends of the Dark Knight to the Batman prototype run. I'm so stuck on the figural 5-points of articulation, and the sculpting detail on this is as good as it gets. The musculature on this is on the cusp of being overdone for my own personal preferences, however what drew me most to this is the elongated ears and guantlet fins - very much in the tradition of Simon Bisely/Sam Kieth - two artists whose work I admire for their rendition of some of my favourite characters. When you see how thin they are, it's incredible that the ears and fins managed to remain intact.

It’s been a minute since I’ve been on here. Just trying to keep up with toys and work. I whitened up my Flagg the other week too which was a big project. Added windows to the super structure while I had it taken apart. Here is some stuff I picked up recently. Got a sweet lot of 60s Joes so now I’m down that rabbit hole lol. Also finally got the the missile to my battle bunker. Some M.A.S.K. as well

Beautiful stuff as always! I've had the SAS Fang on my want list for a long time now, this one looks gorgeous. Did it come like that, or did you have to fix it up? Super sweet!

Talk to me about that Marty piece.  Love the  hoverboard.

I've been surprised to b learn that people dislike Back to the Future 2.  It may be my fav.

Thanks! The only thing I had to fix was the stickers on the rotor blades. Other than just a little bit of cleaning. I finally got the missiles from the original owner that’s in town. He said he picked it up on a family vacation when he was a kid.

The figure is made by NECA. They are currently in Target. I can’t believe people dislike BTTF2. It’s my favorite one for sure. I loved seeing all the futuristic stuff as a kid. Little did we know that we would just be starring at our phones all the time:tonofbricks:

I love that Mamba!

One of the few ARAH toys past 1986 I would want.

One day I would love to own the Flagg! What an awesome toy!

BTF 1 is the best of the trilogy. BTF 2 is good, BTF 3 is awful!

What do you mean staring at our phones all the time? I'm faxing everyone! lol

Ha, see, it's funny because on my end, I'm just recently finding out that people DO like BTTF2! I'm not one to yuck someone's yum, so I'd never try to argue that anyone is wrong for liking it, but I remember that it really didn't do anything for me as a kid, and I guess I grew up expecting everyone thought like me! I owe it a rewatch, for sure. At the time it came out, the first was my favorite movie, I just loved it so much. But I couldn't get into part 2 at all. Meanwhile, I thought part 3 was a lot of fun! I haven't seen 2 or 3 since I was a kid, so I definitely owe both a reappraisal through adult eyes.
