SOS COMMANDOS - Mattone

Tuesday, August 30, 2011

Yet another great "Commando" - official and licensed - knock off product, a figure from Gulliver´s SOS COMMANDOS line.


Originally taken from Diamond Toys, the mold was adapted to Gulliver´s needs and capabilities and the result was a low-cost figure to all those who collected Comandos em Ação (Brazilian version of 3 3/4" G.I.Joe figures) made by Estrela


Figures by Gulliver, card made in Portugal. Interesting.


Included items.


Accessories view.


Mattone, leader of TERROR, and Diamond Toy´s "Commando" Sawbones figure knock off.


Well done, Gulliver!

Transcendence Witchcraft Knight - Purple Dragon

Monday, August 22, 2011

Another great Chap Mei Beast Raider knock off. Considering all the growing collectability of Chap Mei toys, even the KOs are worth a closer look.  


Does this look like a knock off from here?


Produced by the Powerful branch of Jia Long Toys.


Included items.


Included accessories. Again, these KO versions are arguably superior to the originals, since these are made of harder plastic.


Figure: Female character. The low point of this set, as most of the humans JL produces (copies).


Animal: Purple Dragon steed. Perfect for customizing, and for those collectors who have not yet found the original Chap Mei item.


Removable accessories!


Fully operational articulation and great details (for a knock off).

Status: Available for trade, e-mail us if interested.

Look for available original Chap Mei figures, vehicles and accessories at CM Surplus Fan Markt

Terminator Salvation Moto Terminator

Sunday, August 21, 2011

 Including resistance fighter John Connor figure, this bike converts from Moto Terminator to Resistance Cycle.


A Playmates toy from 2009, it replicates the movie scene.


Set in post-apocalyptic 2018, John Connor is the man fated to be the leader of the human resistance against Skynet and its army of Terminators. 


With a minigun on each side and cool HR Giger look... you gotta love it!


"Firing missiles" come off and are here presented as accessories for the Moto Terminator.


Figure: Resistance fighter "John Connor". Different from the regular assortment of basic figures, this one includes a more modern waist movement.


Convert from Moto Terminator to Resistance Cycle with the press of a button (located on the gas tank - IF this runs on gas, that is).


 Brilliant design, and for you G.I.Joe fans, could make a nice-looking new RAM cycle...

Biker Mice from Mars - Lawrence Limburger

Sunday, August 7, 2011

A Galoob toy from 1993, the evil master of disaster with giant working mousetrap!


Complete and ready with evil another scheme!


A Plutarkian in disguise, obsessed with the 1930s, came to earth to stripmine the planet´s resources. 


Included accessories. Trap and face (!!!) mask. 




Figure: Lawrence Limburger. One of Plutark´s fish-people, was sent to Mars to get all planetary resources along with his thugs. After allowing the escape of the 3 famous "Biker Mice" from prison, Limburger was sent to Earth, only to find the heroes there and always ruining his plans.




Working mousetrap. Convenient. Nice looking and fairly big.




As a figure, the few articulation points limits its use. However, considering the heavy (stenchy) character, you don´t need to move it around. The main antagonist, and a typical cartoon figure... great to have standing.

Lego 6675 - Road & Trail 4 x 4

Saturday, August 6, 2011

 A classic Legoland Town set from 1988 and one of my personal favorites, the "monster truck"!


Back when Lego decided to included Lego Technic parts in their Legoland sets, this was a winner. Balanced, cool colors and functional, it was quite a car!


1988 was arguably one of Lego´s best years. All themes had quality boosts and memorable sets.


Included parts.


The only problem I ever found with this set was the fact both axles were independetly constructed, so they could snap off when going over obstacles. Other than that, great vehicle!


Figure: Lego minifig "trucker". 

Status: Available for trade. Mint, loose with box, no instructions.

Star Wars Legacy Collection AT-AT Driver

Wednesday, August 3, 2011

Another great Imperial figure from the Star Wars saga is the AT-AT Driver. Its short screen time caught fans eye and since the vintage 1980 figure, this character has been one of the greatest releases from Kenner/ Hasbro.


2009 Legacy Collection figure comes with a removable helmet, and a great overall look.


The massive AT-AT walkers need skilled drivers to handle them efficiently in battle. AT-AT drivers are experts at operating these ground assault vehicles to keep them moving over rough terrain while pounding their targets with laser cannon fire.


Included accessories and parts. E-11 blaster and Droid.Factory HK-50 part (torso).


Figure: AT-AT Driver. Yet another great remake of this Empire Strikes Back character.


Attention to detail and the excellent helmet sculpt.


Since we tested the POTF2 E-11 on the Legacy Collection Snowtrooper, it´s only fair to test the original vintage one!
