All Thanks to the PS3

So,my better half must have felt bad about the fact that I've been stuck in the dark ages as far as game consoles go.She walks in on me all the time and makes fun of  the pixelated  characters on the TV screen while I'm rocking out on my PS1.She hates It whenever we're driving and  I do a double take whenever I see an old TV with the front mounted red and white AV ports .If It was up to me  I'd have a garage full of them.Oh,and she's tired of looking at my,well,tired original XBOX sitting in the middle of our TV shelf taking up space.And at times,I bet she wonders why I sit in front of a TV screen playing my 16 bit Genesis ,In shock and awe of a 30 year old  piece of game playing hardware.So long story short ,last month she picked me up a PS3 !I know ,the PS3 itself Is also kind of dated but I'd still consider It to be next gen.Not only that ,but the backwards compatibility allows me to play ps1 game discs and downloaded PS2 games as well. So this Is why I haven't posted in a while.Toys have taken a back seat to gaming .The other day I was able to download Resident Evil 2 and 3 for 4 bucks during a flash sale on digital content.I've since loaded up the console with a few must have Ps1 titles as well  as some PS3 games.But yeah,I'll get back to posting about toys soon.For now,though,It's Street Fighter X Tekken time(I know it's an old game lol)!

Captain Power!

I finally added the star of the 1987 live action series ,Captain Power ,to my collection.As a kid ,I genuinely enjoyed this show and toy line.There was nothing generic or knock off-ish about It.This was the real deal and a nice change of pace from the Joes I had been collecting and hoarding at the time.I never purchased   any of the VHS tapes or vehicles but remember really liking the original line of action figures.I'm missing his blaster ,which to me Is critical to have as It was an integral part of  the character.Sometime down the line I'll snag one up as well as the rest of this line.

Brother Midnight's Trade Package :The Contents!

Damn!So much goodness!Let's start this off with an action figure scale that I always make sure to steer clear of,not because I don't like them but because most of the time they are too expensive! I have stated before how I am not the biggest Deadpool fan but damn It If this ain't the coolest  looking action figure I've ever seen.The sculpt Is unbelievable   and I haven't even begun to mess around with all the extra hands and head sculpts .I can't wait to get this guy posed on display!And then there are the throwback Toy Biz figs ,Beast and Spider-Man.Forget about the Beast figure for a minute,that Spider-Man figure Is off the chains!I freakin' LOVE IT.Beast Is cool ,too, but man that Spidey Is something else.Oh,and I also needed the Titan Black Widow fig.

A little 3 3/4 inch action!Thunderball puts me one away from completing the Wrecking Crew!And I finally have some Katanas for my Leo!

Of course It wouldn't be a Brother Midnight package without the usual inclusion of 80's odd ball   greatness.

                                And tons of shitter-ature!So much greatness In this trade box.Thank you Brother!!! You're a genuine ,class act trade partner and friend.And If you haven't heard -Toy Disorderly  Is back up and running!Brother Midnight has given the place a bit of a face lift ,just in time for summer!I'm also excited to announce the forums first contest!Details regarding the loot and entries will be posted on the forum as soon as we get all the kinks ironed  out. Stayyyy Tuuuuned!!!!
