Remember those rad and retro Power Rangers toys I talked about? Well, they all have new and wonderful homes where they can be displayed properly instead of sitting in a box down in a dark basement! In particular, I did a toy trade with Brian (The Trash Man). And boy, the box he sent is insanely nostalgic and awesome and rad. Thank you again Brian for reaching out about the toy trade!
Pooooooggggs! So many pogs! I actually asked if Brian had any beforehand and he certainly delivered. My favorite one is shown above with the skull hatching out of an 8 ball proudly exclaiming "A star is born"! Although all of them are great and bring back so many memories.
All sorts of great toys ranging from Ghostbusters, X-Men, TMNT, Pokemon, and more! But the greatest one of them all in this group? Luigi. He doesn't have the death stare he's sporting in the newest Mario Kart but rather more of an amorous "Why don't you a-come home with-a me tonight?!" Look at that suave guy.
There's a lot of radness going on in these pictures and I was so amazed by the comic book selection Brian sent me. He must be psychic to know I absolutely adore Starfire and Nightstar, Trillium is right up my alley with cerebral sci-fi, and who doesn't love Harley Quinn? Also got two picture books, VR Troopers cake toppers, Catdog birthday decorations, and Sailor Moon stickers! What?!
Trading cards were a 80s/90s kid staple and these are all from television shows I watched religiously as a kid. Tiny Toons was my spirit animal, especially Elmyra. The Beetlejuice cartoon had the best intro and holy crap, Dinosaurs!
I was debating whether or not to open these up because they were STILL all sealed. I eventually did very carefully open these and I'll show you guys the cards I got in another post. ;)
And then my absolute favorite in the toy trade was this Funko Mars Attacks! alien. I have no idea how Brian knew that's a favorite movie of mine but he just nailed it. This guy will be chilling out at my desk at work and I'll annoy my co-workers with ack ack ACK ACK noises.
Once I'm moved and settled into the new apartment I'll be sending out mail once again! But this was a great toy trade for now. Thanks again Brian! And do check out his blog Pop Pop! It's Trash Culture for more nostalgic goodness.
