Trade Package From Brother Midnight!

These last couple of days have been sweltering to say the least.I hate to complain about the heat  because In the winter time,I'm the first one to curse the cold weather and pray for  summer to finally kick in.Well,not only has summer kicked In,but It's also punching,scratching ,biting and beating everybody's ass up here In the north east.Also, it seems my grass is refusing to grow and even If It did ,I'm really not in the mood to do any kind of landscaping,whatsoever. I refuse to go outside.Besides,Brother Midnight,co creator of the awesomest action figure forum In town,    Toy Disorderly  and author of  Green Plastic Squirt Gun has sent me an amazing trade package packed with retro goodness,and so It looks like I'll be a recluse these next couple of days .Brother Midnight has become a regular trade partner over the years and I couldn't appreciate him more.He's helped me fill out my retro toy shelves on more than one occasion,If not by  trade then by purchasing  action figure lots from me on eBay.So ,In a heavy latino accent I'm going to say -eesa goo guy,a preedy goo guy!Check out the greatness below.


Initially,the trade was going to be straight up,G.I. Joe AWE Striker for a Kenner Snare Arm Swamp Thing figure.The fact that he threw In the variants blew my mind!I never got to try out their gimmicks as a kid but now I is. Brother must have read some of my posts on how I wanted to add a little MUSCLE to my collection and he sent along two.I've been kicking myself for getting rid of some Cali Raisins a while back,now I can start collecting them again.Anybody out there reading this ,If you've got any extra California Raisins to pass on,I want them!The MOTU figures and the   Ghostbusters   Dracula will all come In handy.I already have a Man-E-Faces but It's not in as good a shape as the one Brother sent me.If anybody needs a Man-E-Faces,let me know :) It took me a minute to figure out that the robotic arm belonged to Roboto.It was a neat little easter egg to crack. The one figure that has me stumped Is the small medieval alien.I think It may be Chap Mei.I've been meaning to get into that line as well.Overall,just a great package ,Brother,thanks!This will keep my brain stimulated over the next couple of days as I try to fit these guys Into my display,one way or another. 

UPDATE

Just found out that the one Swamp Thing changes color under cold water. Off to the sink now to test It!

  1. Im glad you enjoy them man.I actually went back and forth if I should toss in Man e Faces or Prince Adam guess I make the wrong choice lol. That little guy is a chap mei figure, I think he is an Alien from some space set.

    1. Man-E-Faces worked out though cuz now I have a better version of him and trade fodder!That Chap Mei figure Is In such a nice scale.Not quite 3 3/4 but not a mini figure either.I may have to hunt more of them down.Great box,man!Thanks again,bro ;)
