Well, they said 2020 was the year of the awakening and like Matt Hardy I was Woken! I was going through some kind of phase in the later part of 2020 looking through My old wrestling action figures among others and I was really kicking Myself in the @$$ really, really hard for not getting figures when I could when I had the dough and when they were available for good prices & quantities (As you may have seen earlier in My Christmas & B-Day topic...that was also a part of this phase that I have and am still going through). So, I will post all that I got from October to November of 2020. I will showcase them in order as I got them. Please look at the quick pics that I took and read each of the brief commentaries for each item as it is important to Me. Ok, let's begin this!

TNA Kevin Nash!: Along time ago back in 2010 I started collecting the original TNA figures by ToyBiz/Marvel Toys. I got many of them then but I was just delaying and delaying on getting him. WHY in the heck did I wait to get him for over 10 years when he is one of My favorite wrestlers of all-time? Anyway. I must say that I'm so pleased with him, I find him the best Nash figure ever. He came with a folding chair. He is of real scale (real height & weight) with other figures in the series. As you maybe can tell, he is like and in scale with Marvel Legends with tons of articulation. Now I did get a special 6 pack of Jakks TNA Championship Belts for My guys. He is wearing one in the pic and also is 2 unopened belts as well. As you see these are made years later after Jakks got the licence but they fit rather nicely!

The TNA JAKKS Title Belts continued. Now here is some of others that I got for My Jakks figures from a decade ago showcasing Scott Steiner, Hulk Hogan & Kevin Nash (notice how realistic the Marvel Toys version above compared to this one? They do fit really good as well on these as they are meant for these and other guys in the line.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters Chibies! For a long while since 2019 I was looking for a set of figures from one of the greatest Godzilla movies ever and most were either to expensive or not to My liking. Then I found these Chibies by Max Fun. These are actually considered be cake toppers but who in the heck would put these finely sculpted figures on top of messy food? NOT ME  Shocked  Anyway, I got the whole set, it includes 2 versions of Godzilla (1 regular & 1 Atomic Breath), 3 versions of Mothra (2 Larvae & 1 Imago), Rodan the Fire Demon and last but certainly not least and My fave is the Death Song of Three Storms King Ghidorah! Despite these are really fragile, I am very pleased with them, the sculpting is tremendous and they look nearly identical to the concepts and versions seen in the movie! I just love these Titans/Kaijus!

Mcfarlane Toys X-Files: Fight The Future 3-pack! I have always loved the X-Files, watched since it's first episode in 93 and when the first film came out back in the great big year of 98 it was like an event for Me. I only wanted the gorgeous Scully figure, I had a huge crush on her back then. She was My first McFarlane Toy back in 98...I loved their Movie Maniacs (that will be another fun topic for another time in the near future). So, for months last year I was thinking of the X-Files, more than usual. So I wondered if I could get the 3-pack that I always wanted years ago was still available for a decent price and sure enough I was able too! I got it brand new and when I got it gosh that brought the back memories because I loved opening up McFarlane toys back in the day! The pack includes Scully, Mulder and the Attack Alien! They are sculpted so fine and IMO they were the first truly accurate depicted characters from a movie.

SDCC GB Courtroom Battle Egon Spengler! Egon was the only one that I was missing for My Ghostbusters collection from Mattel's Ghostbusters movie line from the early 2010s! He was the last of the series and I needed him to complete not only My collection but also the Courtroom Battle trio with Ray Stanz & Peter Venkman. I am happy with him and especially I love all of the accessories he came with too!

Tarzan the Epic Adventures Set! Oh WOW I did it! Over 25 years I finally got them! I kicked Myself so hard for NOT getting them years ago! These came out in 95/96 during the great time of true toy hunting/collecting and I remember going to Grandpa Pigeons (a local department store like Wal-Mart that I loved and found them much better than them that sadly went out of business) many times! During those years I kept on picking these guys up time after time and never got them. I loved the style of them and the packaging. They were made by one of My all-time fave figure companies TRENDMASTERS (sadly they too out of business) and they didn't disappoint Me. Nine figures in the set and each one is sculpted just wow with weapons (they are in a plastic bag in the box). I really like ERB's stories of Tarzan & John Carter...I feel that his stories & characters are so underrated and unappreciated. Oh and I got these the day before Thanksgiving of all days!

Andre the Giant by Super7! Whoa now, I didn't expect to get this guy at all so how did I get him? Well long story short, since I haven't bought from them in many years, Sideshow toy e-mailed Me and told Me that My rewards were ready to expire soon so I hurried up and looked to see what they have. As you know I was a huge, huge Sideshow Collector and I featured My Universal Monster collection here within the forum. When they started following the trend like everybody else making Marvel, Star Wars, Disney characters and so many other properties that had been literally been made dozens of times by dozens of companies...I got so sick of it when they weren't making original items. Anyway, I had to find something within My rewards budget cuz everything cost so much now...it's insane really with all of these super sky-high prices...how can anybody afford anything anymore is way beyond Me? The older figures I got above (which are way older mind you) are cheaper than today's modern offerings and IMO in a way I find them much, much better. Anyway after searching for a long while on the newly revamped site (I like the old school one from the 2000s way better) I found Andre the Giant by Super7 and as a huge Andre the Giant fan he was a must (again he was very expensive and much more than what I paid for any of the figures that I just showed you...it's ridiculous!) so there it was finalized though a lot of My rewards was left out due to shipping because they don't allow that discount towards shipping which I found very disappointing!. I had just saw the other day that he had been released and didn't really think about getting him due to the ridiculous cost of today's figures. Anyway, I am familiar with Super7 as I got a few MOTUC from them back in 2018 (again insane prices) so I thought he should be a good figure and he is! This version is of a very obscure appearance from the 70s! He came on Black Friday so I considered him a Black Friday gift to Myself!

Thanks Dal. Yeah, their pretty much forgotten unfortunately. There's only a handful of people that talk about them on the web and I find really pathetic. It was so good then when they were at stores and they are very good as well:!:

Thanks dude Very Happy Yes, he is, it was included with him plus 3 alternate heads and 4 sets of alternate hands. Oh yes, he had many great matches with Hogan in the WWF, My favorite one however was the one they had on the Main Event back in 88 Shocked

Holy cow, I just got Hudson vs. the Scorpion Alien from the vintage Kenner Aliens vs. Marines series Surprised I had enough funds to get them brand new! If you have seen My Christmas & B-Day topic then you already know that I have been after this vintage series for being foolish and not finishing collection when I could have. These guys came out in 1996, I remember seeing them around that time @ K-B Toys. I am almost got all of them now. These are more  movie based than comic. Hudson is kinda of a repaint of Apone and has some new gear however. Where as he Scorpion Alien is a repaint of the original version. These guys cost Me a bit but I considered it a Valentines Present by, to and from Myself Smile

Holy cow, I just got 2 Kenner Aliens two packs! I got O'Malley vs. The Queen Face Hugger and the Alien vs. Predator. I remember seeing all of these guys at K-B Toys so long ago hoping to get them and now I did Surprised O'Malley completes My Marines as you just saw recently that I got Hudson & Vasquez...25 years later I finally got them! Yes, the AvP 2-pack! This eluded Me way back in the day in 93 so again, over 25 years later I got them. They were the first ever in a set and years later companies would be inspired to make their own. Well, I had enough funds to get these great figures thank goodness.

Thanks Dal, I appreciate your reply Very Happy Yes I do. I have most the Kenner AVPs and among other lines. Like I said, I am going to have a vintage action figure topic very soon and I will showcase them all within sometime later as there is others I must showcase first. Thanks again Dal Very Happy

Thanks a lot Daryl, I appreciate that Very Happy Glad you like the X-Files. It was a set that I wanted for a long time and yes the AvP set I wanted even longer. I plan on showcasing all of these figures one way or another sometime in the future. A lot of them will most likely be in the My vintage figure topic while the others will be in topics of their subjects. Thanks again Daryl Very Happy

Gosh,I just realized when I saw the birthdays section that Daryl wished Me a belated Birthday (thanks Daryl, I replied to that) I thought that it would be apropos to show off what I got for My Christmas & B-Day in 2020 & 2021 as I never showed it off earlier and I'm not sure why. As you have seen within this topic in a long story short scenario, that better part of goin' on a year now, I have been seriously thinking about My older and especially vintage lines that I never completed. More on this sometime later.

So, a long time ago My Mom got Me the Aliens & Predator series' by Kenner in the 90s. I am a huge AvP fan. For the past year or so I have been thinking about this and also kicking Myself in the @$$ for not doing this years prior Rolling Eyes So I sold My Marvel legends/Spider-Man Classics & My very valuable Spider-Hulk and got them and I found Myself way more satisfied that I did before Cool  

NOTE: I did not take these pics, these are pics taken by the eBay sellers that I bought them from.

CHRISTMAS

Arachnid Alien: Got him loose, he is great shape. He was originally in a 2 pack with a repainted Drake that I wasn't interested in and saved Me a lot of dough.

The Panther Alien: One of the very few that I needed to complete My collection. Got him loose as well.

The King Alien: One of the ones that I wanted the most of all. Never could get this great character. I could have got him in a two pack but I didn't want the repainted Hicks, besides I loved the green & black color scheme way more!

The WWF No Holds Barred magazine/program: As you know I am a huge wrestling fan (more to come later on that subject!). I loved the movie No Holds Barred, (R.I.P. Zues Sad IMO it is the best wrestling movie ever and when I little I asked My Grandma to get the book back in the day, she couldn't get it anywhere and it was sold out in the WWF warehouse/store back then. Well, fast forward over 30 years later she got it for Me on eBay and I am so happy about that!

My Birthday!

So, I sold a big lot of Marvel Legends so I could complete My Congo: The Movie collection! I got all of these brand new-NOC. I am so happy with these guys!

(I took these pics)

I already have The Mangler. My Grandma got Me him on clearance back in 96 at Target when the shelves were basically empty and like the figs above I had been thinking about Congo as well that I never completed it!

Here is Amy, Peter, Karen, Monroe and Kahega!

Here is deluxe Monroe with Zinj Monkey, deluxe Bonecrusher with Zinj Monkey and Blastface! I am pretending that deluxe Monroe is Mike Harrigan from Predator 2 since he has a hat!

Back of the cards, notice the differences.

The special promo Congo Ape. I actually didn't know about him till very recently. He is a repaint of Blastface, I have named him The Guardian of Zinj Gorilla.

So there it is. I find these figures a lot cooler and refreshing than many of the figures of the 2000s & 2010s thus is one of the reasons why I sold off My MLs. Don't get Me wrong, the recent figures are great but I love the older figures' simplicity with limited joints. I know I could have gotten NECA's Kenner tribute figures of the AVPs but I thought maybe later but I really wanted "THE ORIGIANLS". Also, I tend to like and get what others don't hence My love for Congo. The year 95 and the movie itself was great and the figs are titled from the movie but really I believe they were in fact based from the novel and people at the time and even as I speak don't see that aspect of it as a whole which really to Me is just really cool! All in all I just love the old figures from the 90s!

Well that's it for now, I plan on showcasing these guys at a later date and more in My vintage action figure thread when the time comes! I hope you have enjoyed this topic and that I am back! Till next time, see you around Cool

I had no idea that there were that many aliens and predators made!

I haven't seen Congo, so I'm not familiar with those.

Yes dude, there is a lot of them, I absolutely loved this AvP series. Oh dude, Congo is a classic IMO, great movie but like I said, the figures are really an inspiration of the novel and really not movie accurate which is why I believe people treated it the way they did cause they either didn't know about it or just didn't give it a chance like a lot of things. Like I said, the AvPs and Congo are in scale with each other which I just love and you can have such cool displays like that. Thanks Daryl Very Happy

Oh yeah, I just got some great stuff Surprised  Stuff that I have been needing for a a very long time and something that I just found out about not that long ago. I got it all yesterday from on eBay and here they are Shocked

The Neomorph Alien with baby & Berserker Predator: I just found out about these guys not that long ago earlier on in the year about February or March. When I did I wanted them and knew I had to get them. These are part of NECA's awesome Aliens & Predators that are a tribute to Kenner's original awesome line back in the day. As you have seen previously within this topic, I was heavily trying to complete My collection of Kenner's AvP series. So I wanted these two figures by NECA because they were made in that same style and are in scale with them at 5.5" unlike their others at about 7". Look at the artwork and the overall packaging, it's so far-out reminiscent and I love it! I love these figures. As of this moment, they are still wanting to extended the series. I hope they make an Engineer from Prometheus and the Urban City Hunter from Predator 2. Please make them, I need them...bad Exclamation  Been looking on eBay for a great deal for the two together ever since and just found it! Wow I am so glad that I made that transaction bounce

Swoop Biker! Yes, from Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire! I found him at an extremely low price, brand new Exclamation  He was one of the only figures I needed from the series. I love SOTE and it was arguably My fave SW story along with Dark Forces before the Disney takeover Rolling Eyes  This is a great little set, it brought Me back in 1996, 25 years ago this year Surprised  Shocked  One great bonus I didn't expect was a great Kenner Hits booklet in the box presenting many of their fun lines, however, this is when Hasbro really wasn't hiding that they own Kenner & Tonka anymore Rolling Eyes  I loved those back in the day. Things have changed and I miss those time dearly but at least I got him now Smile  

Recent Acquirements from 2020 & 2021 - Updated 8/24/21! Swoop_10

Ellie Sattler and baby Tricertops! Yes, from the original Jurassic Park series again by Kenner! Yep, I loved Kenner...My favorite one Exclamation  So, I needed her as she was one of the few humans that I needed from the original series. Back in the day My Grandparents got Me a ton of JPs in 93 but they couldn't find her for Me anywhere but now I finally got her along with her little friend. I got her loose at a very cheap price in really great condition and didn't get her ginormous weapon which was OK as I really didn't want it but the little dino was a must. The JPs go great with the Congos bounce So I am really happy with them and now they are part of My collection!

So there you have it, In time I will feature all of these and so much more in My vintage action figure topic within their respected franchises once I am finished with My great 80s showcase in My Vintage Action Figure Topic!. I hope you liked what I just got Very Happy

Happy Birthday! Looks like you got some fantastic birthday presents… from yourself! Because WE know best what we REALLY want on our birthdays, right?

Your enthusiastic captions are always a lot of fun to read. Your excitement over and your enjoyment of these rarely seen figures and lines really shines through.

Whoa dude, thanks for the very belated B-Day Smile Yes, that is correct, I knew what I REALLY wanted Cool

Sometimes I wonder about that if people enjoy My writing and topics because I can't tell cause I don't get that many replies as often as I'd like. Sure, there's tons of views but I can't tell if people are reading it and looking at it or not when there is no comments about what I just posted, I mean with all of these people here one would think there would be more comments Rolling Eyes Man SCU, I appreciate that very much, I'm glad you like it, I try to be as exciting as possible, that is one of the reasons why I returned to the board to make things exciting. I just love the old times and classic figures and stuff, I just like it way better than the modern things currently.

Yes, the lack of comments is one of the great mysteries of this forum.
