The more I look at this shelf, the more I realize I need a Rick Grimes and Daryl figure to add to it! Anybody have any suggestions? I'm not even sure If they have any that would fit the scale.

Cowboy Logan was a must add to the shelf of bad ass🔥🔥🔥 I'm gonna sandwich him in between Snake Eyes and Batman and see how I like it. I'm not sure If you guys have seen the new Walmart exclusive Grim Knight Batman but he's pretty insane looking and may take the place of the one I have on display now. We shall see!

When it comes to creepy figures in my collection, this Rathtar takes the cake! I've had this guy stashed and in the process all of his tentacles fell off. I have no clue where each of them go, hence the odd placement. At some point I may just crazy glue the arms into the ports.

I just wanted to take a second to thank everyone who has taken the time out of their busy schedules to read and/or comment on 2 Minute Toy Break! You guys all know who you are👍 These little trips I take down memory lane to revisit awesome childhood action figure memories just wouldn't be the same without you. I truly appreciate the feedback as well as the nerdy back and forth banter 😝 I'll always be a kid at heart and this site is just an extension of that. Thank you for being a part of it 🙏

Ok, so this isn't really an "action" figure but this less than inch high zombie mini-fig totally fits the monster theme post. I've had this little dude in my collection for years and I can't even remember how or where I aquired it. I'm thinking it was a gumball machine toy. Pretty dope, nonetheless!

I was never a big fan of Funko and their POP! line of mini statues, but I really liked what they did with their 4" MOTU themed and retro styled figures. This is Scarecrow from the Funko Savage World line of DC figures, which IMO, looks cooler than his original design.

This is my shelf of bad ass! It will be strategically populated by Punisher, Wolverine, Snake Eyes and the occasional Batman figure. Notice the empty space next to Snake Eyes? I've got a Legends figure on the way to remedy that😉 Stay tuned!

Drawing inspiration from Alexis on Alexis' Treasures (Collectors Universe) and her Battlestar Galactica post, today we take a look at Hammerhead. Some of my first pop culture memories include Michael Jackson videos, E.T. and of course, Star Wars! I wasn't lucky enough to own a Hammerhead figure back then but I remember my older cousin having one. If I ever do a top ten vintage figure head sculpts post, Hammerhead will most definitely be at the top of that list 🔨 🔨 🔨

Bring on the monsters! I was never a big Thunder cats fan as a kid. I liked the show, although something about it always seemed dated to me, but the figures never appealed to me. They were big, kinda clunky and had limited articulation. It's nice, however, to have a couple on display as they were a huge part of that 80s era where cartoons and action figures thrived. Plus, who better to feature in a monsters themed toy blog post than old Slithe!

Continuing on with the monster theme, give it up for Toxy! Please excuse the wierd positioning of my E.T. fingers and focus on the greatness of this action figure 🔥 I got this as a gift a long way back from one of my favorite bloggers, John Gaither, complete and in great condition. Thanks again,buddy!

I can't think of a better time to showcase this action figure. With halloween just around the corner, it seemed appropriate to post about Marvel Legends Icons Beast! I got this in a trade from Brothermidnight a while back . This thing is massive! Beast stands 12" tall, is super poseable and hurts like hell if you ever accidentally let it fall on your foot. The odd thing about this figure is it's ability to change color depending on what angle your looking at it from. Ok, so it doesn't actually change color, but under certain light conditions it can go from a grey to a dark shade of blue. It's pretty trippy 😜
