Recent Pick Ups!

Just a quick Wednesday morning post to get the day started. A nice box of 1988 Donruss baseball cards to rip, a couple of 1988 Topps Rack Packs, two more Joe Minimates and Marvel Legends X-Men 97 Wolverine just about sums up my October pick ups.

A GI Joe Post That's Not Classified

As much as I love the Classified line of Joe figures, I feel like there's other Joe stuff out there that deserve a little bit of that spotlight.  
Pictured are two custom cardback figure protectors and four Diamond Select 💎  GI Joe figures.  
I'd been looking for a way to protect my stashed 3.75  o-ring Joe's when I came across these online. I picked up William Perry's and Snake Eyes protectors and will be adding more as they are made available.  
These are unpunched, clean and professional looking cardbacks that feature vintage artwork  on the front and file card on the back. 
Diamond Select just doesn't get the props they deserve in my opinion. As much as I dig  their Marvel Minimates line, these Joe Minimates are equally cool! I'm not even sure I want to open these guys up. I mean I want to, but would hate to.

Figure Fixation

Has there ever been one certain figure that always caught your eye when looking at your collection? With me it changes, for one odd reason or another. This time around, it's my Marvel Select Daredevil figure.

DC McFarlane Gold Label - Captain Atom

My first Captain Atom read was back in the 80s. We had a corner store down the street from where I lived called Passaros and for some reason all they ever had were DC comics. That's where I picked up this issue along with a couple of Green Lanterns. 
Ever since, I've been trying to find a Captain Atom figure resembling the one I grew up with and this McFarlane iteration comes damn close.

Toy Haul!

Just a few things to keep me occupied this long, labor day weekend. I haven't really recovered from the big sell-off of most of my 3.75 Star Wars figures. These 6" figures should help me rebound nicely! 
Stay tuned for loose pics!

Marvel Epic Heroes '97 X - Men - Wolverine

As much as I liked Rogue from this Epic Heroes line of X -Men figures,  Wolverine is kind of a dud for me. I'm thinking it's probably because I've had so many Marvel Universe Wolvies to compare this one to and virtually no Jim Lee styled Rouges. It's an o.k. figure but the head seems a little truncated on the torso. What do you guys think?

Marvel Epic Heroes '97 X - Men - Rogue

I did something today I rarely ever do. I had the day off and my daughter needed a few things from the store so that meant I was gonna have to go to Target. Most of the time I just wait for her in the parking lot but today I decided to browse the boujee Target toy aisles. Good thing because I was able to find these Epic Heroes X - Men figures that I've been hearing so much about. Let's take a look at Rogue. 

I'm excited about this product. Not quite Marvel Universe but solid enough to fill that 3.75" void. Next we'll take a look at Wolvie and Cyclops! Stay tuned!
