Marvel Legends -Hawkeye w/ Sky Cycle

Image
  This set gets me in my feels because it takes me back to playing Captain America and the Avengers in the Arcade as a kid. Here's my copy of the Sega Genesis port with some screenshots of Hawkeye on his Sky-Cycle.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

Big Boa

I finally have a spot to display my Classified figures which means I can start unboxing what I've had stashed for the last month or so. I gotta start with the figure that has automatically cracked my "Top 5 Classified Joes list" , Big Boa!

Big Boa In The Wild!

Image
It's nice to be able to pick off figures on ebay, as needed. I can do it from the comfort of my home over a cup of coffee while chilling on my couch. However, it's twice as nice running into that same figure in the wild. No shipping fees or wait times. Plus, you get to inspect the figure before purchasing. I was shocked to see Big Boa on the pegs at my local Walmart a few weeks back. It was cool to be able to throw something other than an Epic Heroes figure into my shopping cart. Since then I've spotted a retro carded Duke and Quick Kick.  I Hope they're still there when I go back.

Marvel Legends - U.S. Agent

Image
I've always been a fan of this look for Captain America, even If Steve Roger's only donned it a few times before passing it on to John Walker. U.S. Agents stint was brief but this was a must add for my West Coast Avengers team. On a side note - I feel myself slipping deeper into the rabbit hole that is Marvel Legends. I'm sure once I'm done completing my WCA team, more figures will follow.  Also, right now I'm sitting on a stack of action figures (Legends, Classified) that need to be unboxed, played with and photographed so stay tuned! 

GI Joe Classified - Shockwave

Image
The original vintage Shockwave figure released right about the time I stopped collecting as a kid. 1988 I believe. I think the lack of cartoon appearances by all of the late 80's figures in the original Sunbow series had alot to do with my waning interest. In retrospect, I probably missed out on what could have been one of my favorite all time GI Joe action figures. That said, I am perfectly fine filling that void, temporarily,  with GI Joe Classifieds Jason " Shockwave " Faria!
