Trip #2 to the flea market -- grabbed some toys!
First off, let me apologize for the horrible quality some of these photos turned out to be -- they were a rush job. But, don't let that distract you from the overall nostalgia these items are sure to bring.
I went to the same flea market as my post for part one of this series, so let's just dig right into the nitty-gritty, shall we?
First up is this awesome talking Terminator figure from TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY. I haven't tested to see if it works or not (it needs new batteries) but that's okay. I'll already know exactly what he says and does...because I owned this same figure as a child. I have no idea what happened to it, but that's okay, too...because I have a new (to me) one!
For the second item, I grabbed a Venus figure from NINJA TURTLES: THE NEXT MUTATION (you know, that short-lived live-action Turtles show from the same people who did POWER RANGERS). Now, this exact Venus De Milo figure is from the Thunder Thrashers line and is called Blacktop Boardin' Venus.
I need to be honest here. I had absolutely zero idea that a line of toys from THE NEXT MUTATION even existed. But I'm glad they do, because I did a quick Google search on them and wow!
Third on the list is one of those annoying troll dolls from the early '90s. You know the ones. We all do. Normally, I wouldn't grab one of these at a flea market, but this one called out to me. It was just staring at me from the bottom of a crumpled cardboard box. So I adopted him.
The fourth item here is a small McDonald's Happy Meal toy from the '90s. It's dirty as shit, but that's part of its appeal, I suppose. And how could I possibly pass up on something that says "Porky's Ghost Chasers" on the side? I knew you'd understand.
Last, but certainly not least, is a Captain Hook figure from HOOK. This ones legs grow longer. Not sure why, but I love this toy to death. And the fact that it's still packaged is a total bonus! I suddenly have an urge to collect this whole series. Should I?
Well, folks, that's it for my latest trip to the flea market. Thanks for reading!
