Nylint ABC Wide World of Sports 1980 Winter Olympics Truck

I received this toy for Christmas of 1980 or 1981. I loved it. Wasn't expecting it.  I don't remember having the figures and little camera cart. They are hard to find. Have never seen it for sale online in its box. That is one grail I would like to get my hands on someday.

Anyway - with the Winter Olympics going on, it reminded me of this toy.

Funko Pops Greedo vs Han Solo

I can appreciate the design and style of Funko Pops and understand why so many people collect them, but I don't buy them. Until now, and only because I collect anything Greedo.  Greedo vs Han Solo - and Han shot first. Wonder if he will shoot first in a scene of the new movie.  Probably.

Anyway - fun little set.

The Last Jedi Black Series Collection

I finally found DJ today at GameStop. Haven't pulled him out of the box yet, but it reminded me of the photos I took around the holidays of the 6 inch Black Series figures from The Last Jedi...with a sprinkle of Force Awakens figures since they appear in TLJ as well.

21st Century Ultimate Soldier XTreme Detail Vietnam Platoon Soldiers

Don't think these were widely advertised or known about. I remember stumbling on these by accident at Walmart. These 1:18 Vietnam War figures were fashioned after the characters of Oliver Stone's Platoon. Taylor (Charlie Sheen), Elias (Willem Dafoe) and Barnes (Tom Berenger) were the stars of the movie. Lerner was a small part - but played by Johnny Depp.

Star Wars Early Bird Set

Well, this is a recreation of the 1977-78 Early Bird set from Kenner. Iacquired this for subscribing to Lee's Action Figure magazine. Fun, little collectible.
