ToyCon : Ben 10

We got one of Isaac's favourite Ben 10 monster from the animated TV series, Armodrillo.

Armodrillo has a yellow-armored body and looks much like a robot. His head is similar to a Greek Corinthian helmet with two ears on it giving him the appearance of an armadillo. Armodrillo has a gray tail and jackhammer parts on his elbows, wrists and hands, creating the impression that Armodrillo is a digging robot. Despite the mechanical appearance, all of these aspects are in fact biological and natural to his race.

ToyCon : Power Lords

One of my most wanted action figure as a kid is finally mine… Power Lords.

Designed by Wayne Barlowe, Revell released in 1983 the Power Lords collection. This was a cool line of action figures but one that I never got back in the days simply because we couldn't find them around here.

Adam Power is an earthling, given the cosmic Power Jewel to protect the galaxy from the evil dictator, Arkus. Arkus is a nigh invincible foe, determined to take the Power Jewel as well as Volcan Rock, Adam Power’s secret stronghold, in his quest to conquer the galaxy.

Two heroes join Adam Power in the war against Arkus. They are Shaya, the Queen of Power and Sydot the Supreme.

But evil Arkus also has helpers…

ToyCon : Mr.T

One of my favourite action figure as a kid was this A-Team action figure of Mr.T as B.A. Baracus. Released by Galoob in 1983, this is a great action figure. Now we need to find the 12" version.

ToyCon : Terminator

We finally got a Terminator 2 action figure from Kenner. This is the Battle Damage Terminator. Its a simple yet very cool action figure. His front torso blows off to reveal the hidden cyborg skeleton underneath! It also comes with a shotgun.

It was released in 1991. Isaac loves it. We sure hope to find more of them soon.

ToyCon : Alien

Last June we attended the annual Montreal ToyCon.

There was so many great action figures available we where going crazy. But we had to limit ourselves to a budget. We still got some great stuff.

First was the just release Funko ReAction Alien figure. This is one we've been waiting for and we love it. The details are great and it really has the look and feel of those late 1970s action figure.

Here's what ReAction will have for sale exclusively at the upcoming San Diego ComicCon!

Fisher Price's Imaginext + Playskool's Marvel

One of Isaac's very first collection was Fisher Price's Imaginext. Six years later we still love and collect them. Last afternoon we had lots of fun with all of our Imaginext and Playskool's Marvel!

The evil Mummy lord took over the Ninja castle. He ruled over the land. But the team of DC and Marvel baddies wanted to take the castle for themselves. But they didn't know that the good guys from both sides also joined force.
