Funny repaint of Destro, as the leopard skin/magenta covered Profit Director (Pimp Daddy). A quick repaint but so much fun.

Big Downsizing Project Going On - and Stuff to Give Away

Greetings all - the time has come to seriously downsize. We just had some shelving put into the garage to keep the mountain of bins and boxes from falling over and injuring someone. I have very few items on display except for the Gentle Giant Jumbo Kenner Star Wars collection on the built in book shelves. As I sort through the boxes and bins over the next month or two, I'll be selling some stuff on Ebay but also offering items to anyone who reads my blog. First come, first serve. I already have a package or two headed out to some of you. And if you're looking for anything specific, let me know.

So, does anyone want this 6 inch scale Black Series TIE Fighter? It's huge - which is a problem. And the wonderful design problem is that once you put a wing on, it doesn't come off. Nice going Hasbro.

Anyway, if the item is huge, like this, I'll charge shipping. $25 shipping, otherwise, I'll take care of it. I'll refund the difference if it's less.

Star Wars Black Series - Death Trooper Credit Collection

Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni have done a nice job of reusing characters from previous movies. It is fun and it ties the movies together. While the Death Trooper wasn't part of the Mandalorian Black Series figures, it's appearance in Rogue One and reuse in The Mandalorian was very cool. This repaint as part of the credit collection series is pretty darn cool.

Chicken Fried Toys - Dime Novel Legends Texas Ranger

This was supposed to be a summer toy show exclusive, but in the year of Covid, there were no shows and production was delayed. But he finally arrived. This is Chicken Fried Toys' Texas Ranger. Looks sharp. Looking forward to Series 1, Waves 1.5 and 2 to arrive, along with Series 2 whose Kickstarter just completed.

Star Wars - Vintage Kenner 12 Inch Figures

Was going through storage boxes in the garage and came across my bins of 12 inch Star Wars figures. I decided to take some photos. Here are the only vintage Kenner 12 inch figures I have - Chewbacca, Princess Leia, Darth Vader, Stormtrooper, Boba Fett, IG88, R2D2 and the Jawa. Perhaps one day I will finish off the collection.

The four villains are the originals from my childhood. The good guys have been purchased or gifted in the last few years.

Princess Leia was a gift. It was boxed with all the paperwork included.
