jkrafty is selling a vintage Robocop figure from 1988. These Kenner Robocop figures came long before Palisades Toys and McFarlane started making there own. Though not as detailed as the Mcfarlane these figures do have one cool feature. Each figure came with a roll caps to insert into the figures back. You gotta love an ultra violent movie like Robocop being marketed to kids. I know I did. After all I did see the movie in the theater when I was 7. Thanks Uncle Matthew.

My obsession with all things Batman started in 6th grade and this is the first Batman figure I owned. I liked options, and I didn’t have a lot of money growing up so I wanted my toy purchases to go far. This seemed like a good choice. It was like 2 toys in one, and it was Batman! The figure looked great with the suit on and aside from the gloves looking a little heavy it didn’t seem awkward at all. Which can’t be said about the animated series figure version with the same shtick. Ugh, Batman looks like Iron Man or something there.
dman2123 has the movie one in two versions one from 1990, and one from 1991. I had the earlier one.
onered1 has this one.

The thing about the M.A.S.K. toys was, the drivers and their masks were so small, they were very easily lost or destroyed (say, if you were a kid with a bad habit of chewing on the masks like bubble gum while you were pondering the next chapter in the adventure you were taking Matt Tracker and company on). They weren’t as small as M.U.S.C.L.E’s, don’t get me wrong, but many a M.A.S.K. or V.E.N.O.M. vehicle ended up short a driver in my day. So if your day was anything like mine, seller yeahtoys*07′s lot of M.A.S.K.’s is gonna be what’s left of your childhood collections saving grace. Unless you also broke the vehicles. Then you’re on your own.
More on M.A.S.K., V.E.N.O.M., and yes, even M.U.S.C.L.E, later on in the week!

buttahfingaz is selling a lot of POTF Star Wars figures. These are all from the first run from 1995-2000. I was one the idiots that started buying into this bullshit as well, and now I’m stuck with a few. There seems to be about 80 pieces in this lot so you might be able to buy some and resell others.

I remember when Star Wars was re-released in the theater in the mid 90′s with anticipation of the new films to follow. People were selling all their old collections at flea markets and toy conventions becasue Ebay still had not been perfected. snakeriverman is selling a case of figures complete with weapons. I noticed that there is no Luke or Boba which is probably part of the reason why this lot is so cheap. The BIN is a pretty good price for the whole lot, back then you could not buy all these figures for under a 100.00 bucks. To this day I still feel these figures are better than the newer ones that Kenner released.

A lot of the stuff I post on here are things that either I had back in the day or still have. Once in awhile its just something I think its kind of cool or something that I have some info about, but this is something that I would really love to have! Its totally out of my price range, but I would LOVE to have this hanging on the wall in my living room!
When the original series of Star Wars Power of the Force action figures came out in 1985 each figure came with a silver coin showing the character on it. Since these figures came out near the end of the first Star Wars merchandising blitz they were kind of rare and it was tough to collect them all.
What this person is selling is a giant frame holding TWO full 62 coin sets so that the front & back of each coin is on display. That makes a total of 124 coins in the frame. To make things even cooler he also says that this framed set is one of only TEN sets that were giving to Kenner executives in 1985. Man this is cool!
The 62 character coins include the more common coins of the figures that were exclusive to the POTF cards….
R2 Pop-Up Lightsaber
Some figures that were originally issued as part of either the Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back or Return of the Jedi lines and were then reissued on POTF cards…
Han Solo Rebel (Trenchcoat)
Princess Leia Rebel Leader (Poncho)
There were also some coins that were only available through mail-away offers from Kenner. These coins fall into 3 tiers as far as their rareness…
Tier 1 (most common mail away coins)
Emperor’s Royal Guard
TIE Fighter Pilot
Tier 2 (semi-rare mail away coins)
Lando with Cloud City
Luke with Tauntaun
Star Destroyer Commander
Tier 3 (incredibly difficult to find mail away coins)
Luke on Dagobah
Princess Leia, Boushh
Princess Leia Original
