Trade With John Gaither!

I completed a trade with my good buddy and former toy blogger  John Gaither this past week.The centerpiece of the deal was the 6 inch  John Matrix Commando figure.It's been on my want list for ever!Not only did I get the 6 inch Commando,but he also threw In a couple of the super rare 3 inch Commando figures,John Matrix included. The rest were some cool extras John decided to throw In . I'll be going over everything individually these next couple of days.Stay tuned!

    1. I like that ninja better than the more modern ones that came out for the Retaliation line.Sadly,he's missing a ll of his accessories,and there was alot of them.I'll dig up a couple of swords for him when I get some time.

  2. John is a good guy. I miss him having a blog.

    BTW, I think I have a commando vest sitting around somewhere. I'll check for you.

  3. I had that Scorpius figure growing up. It wasn't until recently that I learned he was from Voltron. Such an odd figure.

    Speaking of odd figures, I can't imagine the Commando line did too well with kids.

    1. I don't ever remember seeing any commercials or advertisements for them Chris.With G.I. Joe hitting It's stride and Rambo making It so big with a film and cartoon series,yeah ,these Commando figures probably got the shit end of the stick.I'm not sure how many figures were released In the line but a few are scantily listed on ebay.

    2. I think it was 3 or 4 each good guys and bad guys, plus the larger size Matrix figure. But I might be off on that. It's been a while since I've seen info on them.
