This Toxie fig has stood the test of time! It's been a part of my collection for years now and will continue to be from here on out . At the time these figures were released I wasnt really collecting but I knew who the Toxic Avenger was. I think because of the live action film. An all time favorite!

I can't say enough about this last trade package I received from Brothermidnight . I've harped on endlessly about desperately needing a Joe fix and Brother came through In the clutch . I mean come on,a vintage HISS! I actually told him that he could hold off on sending this along with another modern HISS to lower the shipping cost but he , In Brothermidnight fashion , sent them anyways.
From what I could tell It seems to be complete . Well almost complete If you count the driver . The HISS alone Is just such an iconic vehicle In the Joe mythos .
This begs to be piloted by and equipped with a couple of vintage Cobra Troopers that ,unfortunately, I don't have . Armored suit CC ,
Falcon Raptor and Crystal Ball will have to do for now.
Here's what the shelf looks like now.
A big shout out to Brothermidnight for the insane Joe trade package ! There were other great figures included In the box that I'm holding off posting about for now.Stay tuned for new display pics and possibly some diorama pics with some of the new figures.

A trio of what I believe are 50th Ann. Iron Grenadiers.
50th Ann. Cobra Commander and 25th Ann. Scuba Gear Baroness.
Two figures I absolutely love are Heavy Duty and Stiletto.I'll be going over Stiletto a little more in depth In a future post. One of the things I liked the most about Stiletto was the write up on her file card.

Of the three figures you see here , I'm most excited about Destro . I've never had a contemporary Destro figure but always needed one . I'm not sure which version this one is . I'm guessing 25th ann. and probably from a multipack ? The figure I'm most surprised about Is Major Bludd . I like this guy alot more In hand than I do In pictures.I can't wait to do a group pic alongside my Ultimate Cobra Commander , 50th Zartan and Ultimate Storm Shadow figures!
It's no surprise that I'm a Snake Eyes collector so I was super stoked to find this version In the trade box!The Quick Kick and Alpine figures I'm absolutely crazy about!
Here we have an unreleased JP figure , and exclusive Outback and 25th Ann. Matt Trakker figure . At first I thought the Outback was one of Brothermidnight's customs but come to find out , It's a pretty rare exclusive. I've known about the Jurassic Park figure but never thought I'd own one.In fact,does anyone know what this figure had to do with the film?I haven't seen all the movies yet so I'm wondering If maybe he was a character In one of them.And I can't say enough about that Matt Trakker figure.It's one of those figures you can't help but hold In your hand,flick the propellers and spin around like an 8 year old. It's a 3 3/4 MASK figure , <smh > , insane!
More G.I. Joe greatness ! This time we have 25th Ann. Stalker , 50th Ann. Blowtorch and a 30th Ann. Slaughter's Marauders Low Light.
I missed out on a lot of the 25th Ann. stuff when they first came out and when they hit the clearance shelves . It seems like these figures were everywhere so I thought I'd be able to snag some up down the road . I was wrong and now they're super pricey on ebay. I'm happy to have these guys In my collection. The B.A.T. is sporting the cartoon accurate red visor,too! A mandela effect moment there as I always thought they had silver visors In the cartoon.
There's so much more that I have to get to so stay tuned for those future posts.

There's nothing better than a trade package full of toys arriving on a Saturday!The amount of G.I Joe goodness that was packed into this box is too phenomenal for one post.At the bottom you'll see a pic of some key items that I pulled from the box just to give you an idea of the kind of stuff Brothermidnight included.Lets start off by taking a look at some cool artwork Brother admittedly drew on the box while sitting In the car on the morning he shipped It.
Here's a sneak peek at some of the contents .Not pictured are the two vehicles that came inside the package as well.
This is just a fraction of what was inside the box.G.I. Joe 25th Ann. Quick Kick,Joe Con Exclusive Outback and the one and only Matt Trakker that released alongside the 25th Ann. figures,I believe. Brothermidnight also remembered me needing a rocket launcher for my Rambo figure and Order,Law's German Shepherd sidekick.Oh yeah,and a vintage HISS!Stay tuned for more Joe greatness and new display set up pics!

Once again It's time to slow things down here on 2 Minute Toy Break.Funds for new action figures are pretty much non existent at the moment .It's been 2 months since I've added anything new to the collection.Since this Marvel Universe RYU figure ,I really haven't picked up anything else.I am waiting on a trade package so that will at least give me something to blog about In the next coming months and with Halloween around the corner,maybe I'll get inspired to post some spooky themed action figure pics.Who knows?Stay tuned!
