Sunday Special: Karate Kid, ScribbleNauts, V

Back in the mid-1980s Remco released the very cool Karate Kid based action figures.

Also around the same time, LJN released some toys based on the V TV series. Sadly some were never put out on shelves but the 12" figurine was and it looked great!

We loved the ScribbleNauts video games on the Nintendo 3DS and now the Wii U. Strangely a few years ago an superb ScribbleNauts figure was released.

We went to a local video game convention and picked up some cool stuff. One of them was the original Tomy action figure of Rocket Team James. This is one of the very few we were missing.

Sunday Special: Masters of the Universe

I remember when back in 1982, my brother and I discovered the Masters of the Universe action figures. These were larger than the usual 3 3/4" figurine we were used to. The looked tougher, cool and more fun. The first two we got were He-Man and Man-at-Arms.

One thing that I've always loved about MOTU was the artwork. Here's a collection of some of the coolest.
