G.I. Joe The Rise Of Cobra

Just taking a few moments out of the day to pay tribute to a crappy live action film that spawned some really cool action figures.If you weren't collecting at the time,G.I. Joe The Rise of Cobra film was supposed to release a lot earlier than It did.That led to figures making their way to store pegs prematurely and subsequently heading straight to clearance sections.ROSS,TJ Maxx and Marshall's had tons of  them stocked and on clearance for about 3 bucks a piece,some even cheaper.I sagged up a bunch and still have a few,mostly the main cast , left In my collection.

G.I. Joe ROC - Snake Eyes

I remember seeing tons of this version of Snake Eyes on the pegs and on clearance.I never paid It any mind.I thought the head sculpt was a little wonky ,especially with the odd inclusion of a nose and mouth.And then something happened.They began disappearing from clearance aisles ,and ultimately from stores altogether.Of course,now I wanted one because that's just how It is isn't It ? Even still,lots of them began to show up on eBay, but so reasonably priced that yet again ,I  passed.I thought,hey I can always pick one up at that price sometime down the road.Well,recently they've shot up In price a bit so naturally ,It was time to make my move before they became simply unattainable.

If you ever feel the need to open up a quality action figure ,you can do a lot worst than a G.I. Joe ROC movie figure.

When was the last time you opened up an action figure that included this much stuff!?!

Newbie collectors probably don't know what this Is ,but what you're looking at Is a figure stand.Yup,you heard right.An actual action figure stand.With the figures name on it!

And look,It doubles as  a dog tag !We had It good,I know.

Look,It's a functional action figure!Weapons fit snug in hand ,backpacks with sheath for easy sword storage.Paint apps on point complete with tight joints. 

In conclusion,I'm glad I finally picked up this version of Snake Eyes.It's actually pretty significant considering It's the first time we've ever seen Snake Eyes In a real live action film. Thanks for joining me on this 2 minute toy break!Now you can get back to whatever It Is you do when your not reading toy blogs and surfing the net 😉

G.I. Joe Loyal Subjects - Snake Eyes

When collecting starts to become a boring a chore ,nothing re-sparks my interest like a Snake Eyes figure.It's crazy how  Loyal Subjects was able to cram 12 points of articulation Into these tiny figures. I must admit to not being a big fan of  novelty figures ,but  these don't feel like a novelty.What your getting here Is an action figure with full mobility ,removable accessories and file card.

Random Pics /Thoughts

So I've just been through my third Resident Evil disc and none work :( It's not my system because It plays every other game I own.This has really gotten me down due to the fact that I really,really want to beat It.Suxxx!Luckily I've been able to return the games with no problem and with the refund ,purchase more copies.I'm at my wits end,though ,and refuse to pick up anymore copies of the game.3 Is enough.

On the toy side of things,my better half recently knocked over my Marvel Universe display of figures  while doing Zumba lol.I thanked her for doing so because It gave me a chance to take them off the shelves and take some pics.I tend to be more active with pic taking when I can just grab them from a pile and create scenes.When they are all on display ,nice and neat,I don't like touching them much.I know I'm weird like that.

I've got a couple things coming In the mail so that's on the horizon but other than that ,not much Is going on .
