TMNT WTF 3

/ 7 years ago

Welcome to the 3rd edition of TMNT WTF, where I post some silly-as-fuck oddities in the TMNT toyline from the 80’s and early 90’s. We saw farmer-Turtles, we had Pizzaface the crazy one-legged pizza chef, and here we have Halfcourt, the basketball playing giraffe!

What does a giraffe or basketball have to do with TMNT? At least the pizza-chef, was a pizza chef and the Turtles love pizza…do they also like b-ball? I can’t remember. Well Halfcourt comes with what looks like a metal basketball and a bunch of other junk, I can’t tell what all of his accesories are, one looks like a gun of some sort, or is it a basketball pump? Is it both? Is that a manhole cover? I don’t know, but he sure is wacky. I like how he is wearing a torn basket for a necklace though. Oh, wait I see, he probably needs the pump/gun because….he is hustlin’ b-ball like Wesley and Woody and well, sometimes you gotta break out your gat on the court, right? Especially in a world full of mutants! Yeah…

coltscomics seems to have the cheapest MOC Halfcourt on ebay right now, but he is also taking offers. There are loose ones but you need his freakin’ bio-card!

Last but not least, how about a Nazi Wehrmacht Bebop, from the “Mutant Military” line? Gotta love the “Duh, I’m Just Following Orders” on the card. LOL.

Simpsons World of Springfield Playsets

/ 9 years ago

Remember the episode of The Simpsons where Bart dreams that he has a snow day and Lisa hits him in the face with a snowball made from ice in the freezer. He runs down the stairs and opens the door thinking it has snowed only to be greeted by the sun and no snow. Well that is how I felt today, I was hoping for a snow day but no dice. I had to go in to work because all the other assholes that I work with are to scared to drive. Maybe I should get the Plow King to go over and pick them up. Oh well fuck em I get to post this awesome set for you on company time. swtzuke21 is offering up a great deal on some out of print Simpsons sets from Playmates some of these are Toys R Us exclusives. I would love to buy this, I never had the chance to finish up my collection and this would be a great addition. Maybe some of you out there are missing these as well.
