Mike’s Action Figure Collection

James / November 10th, 2010

Here’s a video of Mike’s collection of action figures. There’s also a lot of TMNT figures, but we’ll get to that another time when we do a huge TMNT blowout. Hopefully sometime next year. Both Mike and I are still trying to watch the entire series of the original TMNT cartoon. It’s been taking a long time. We’re only a little over halfway through.
With James Rolfe and Mike Matei

    Good stuff, I had a friend with pretty much the same action figure so watching this video was pretty nostalgic to me. Glad to see you guys (or maybe just James, I dunno) are fan of The Mysterious Cities of Gold (the song at 2:52).

    I totally agree with the goofball comment about bad guys in 80’s cartoons, I guess they did that because there was no age rating so they had to be pretty conservative to get enough views from kids, just a thought.

    Wish you would have shown us the Technodrome or whatever that’s called. And you should track down the Thundertank and Greyskull Castle. Very cool toys that go with your collection.

    November 10, 2010 at 9:19 am

    i also had that skeleton toy from ghostbusters. marshal bravestar lol – captain planet xD & some transformers as well. 1 of em was as large as voltron but from the decepticons. some kind of robot / tank / base with 2 micromasters – idk the name anymore.

    i had alot of he-man and mask figures. over time they got lost – weapons broke or i gave em to my nephew.
    what i have atm are the 2003-2004 he-man toys & current he-man classics figures – which came out 2008-2010. they still makin new releases every month.
    check out mattycollector.com

    whom i always wanted was leo (the name of lion-o in germany) from thundercats.
    never got it :(. i see you dont got him as well?!

  • Krieg

    November 10, 2010 at 9:25 am

    I’m surprised you didn’t have any transformers or GI Joe! I still have my Cobra Ratler, Cobra Mamba, Battle Tank, Sky Striker. Wish I had my transformers though, I had a ton…mom gave them away…I still give her shit about it. I remember those Go-Bots, watched the tv show too. I had a few, even had some of the Super Go-Bots…remember those?? They were like the regular ones, except bigger and better quality toys.

  • November 10, 2010 at 9:44 am

    Suddenly I don’t feel so ashamed for having a bunch of G.I. Joes and Transformers.

  • Jigglysaint

    November 10, 2010 at 11:24 am

    I remember all of those. I don’t know, we might have a Go-Bot or two hanging around, though we were definitly a Transformers family. I know we do have a Snarf kicking around somewhere. I never treated my toys with respect, so I don’t have any left. Well I mean I DO have all my stuffed animals from when I was a kid, but what kind of grow up man wants to talk about his partial Gummi Bear collection(especially when they were all stripped naked)?

    I also have a big collection of Star Wars figures from the Episode I line to the modern day line.

    Devastator from both the G1 series and the MIchael Bay films can kick Voltron’s titanium ass.

    Leader 1 was originally a Go-Bot? The reason why I ask this is because Leader 1 is the name of Megatron’s Mini-Con from the series “Transformers: Armada.”

    4:17- But, again, no gay overtones. =)

    i loved the Gobots when I was a kid. I still wish I had all the toys of theirs still. Another cartoon I was hoping you had MASK stuff. Talk about awesome!

    Super jealous of the collection. I mainly have a bunch of just the figures of GI joes, and a ton Ninja turtles with the smaller vehicles. plus I’ve got a bunch MOC still. 2 things defined my childhood. Nintendo, and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

    I have some of that stuff! (Ahh… the memories) Unfortunately, mine weren’t as in good condition as yours due to that wide span of 20 something plus years of moving them around plus other environmental damages (including the neighborhood kids).

    Now I wanna find some Ghostbusters figures with complete accessories like you have. Thanks for sharing your awesome collection!

    holy shit this video blew my mind. i had most of those action figures as a kid and had forgotten about so much of it. really wish i would have kept a lot of this stuff, i have no idea where any of it is now. anyway, thanks a bunch and i hope you do another one similar to this where you look at some more of his stuff.

    Did you have the comic in the States James? Looking forward to the Turtles action figure video, any chance of doing a Ghostbusters one too? With the characters and their eyes popping out and the mutant grand mother.

    I had loads of He Men figures, they were my most loved toys, I only had a couple of Transformers though and really wished I had bought more and to me those toys were the most mysterious and amazing. But what I would really have loved would have been a collection of Street Fighter Action Figures, particularly Guile and his Sonic BOOM! http://www.vizzed.com/vizzedboard/vizzedindex.php?ref=65348

    Awesome collection, man. But one question…how does it take you to dust all that stuff? hehe =P

  • November 11, 2010 at 12:05 am

    It’s so sad My mother give all my toys to my cousin ..So I wasn’t a kid anymore well you know..

    Weird. I had that Voltron, until I was a 10 year old idiot and sold it. I have a few of the same He-man toys, and few different ones. Now, the big difference is that I have almost every single Ghostbusters toy. I don’t have Janine, or the VW Beetle that turns into a mantis. I have pretty much everything else though. Hundreds of things. Even all the classic movie monsters! There’s a mummy, Frankenstein’s monster, Dracula, Quasimodo… I can’t remember the rest. They’re in storage.

    “Arenโ€™t you guys a bit old for this stuff? Like 20 years too old?”

    Actually ,now a days most people their age are buying figures. like comics,they are starting to be come more and more acceptable to have a collection of figures.Honestly ,their are guys online that I see on message boards(married and have great jobs)that collect.It is nothing to be ashamed of it is just that were are getting to a point where we might be a little bit relax in our adult years .

    Now I am not saying this is going to mainstream or everybody is going to agree(parents) but Adult collection is starting to be more acceptable.

  • November 11, 2010 at 3:59 am

    Hey I don’t mean do be rude or anything but, technically The Real Ghostbusters cartoon is the fake one since the Filmation one is a sequel to their 70’s live action show. The reason they made a sequel is because they wanted to make a cartoon for the movie but Columbia Tre-star wouldn’t let them even though Filmation let them use the name Ghostbusters, and that is why they called it the real Ghostbusters. Another thing if you remember from number two when they go to the birthday party and they all yell for He-Man that could be a nod or rip at Filmation.

  • November 11, 2010 at 4:04 am

    That is one impressive collection you have there mike, I used to have so many of those toys but sadly they are lost…or more than likely sold at garage sales, who knows. If you want to see something cool, wait ’til I send you a picture of my Godzilla Gashapon collection.

  • mastamuzz

    November 11, 2010 at 4:23 am

    Awesome Collection Mike!!

    the fate of my action figures was the same as many of the guys that already posted “mom gave it to someone who needed it more” but today I wish I could still have them just so I could remember the glorious days when I used to play with them as a kid.
    Is great that you still have them as a nice collection and hard to believe that they are in that condition judging by how you play board games I feel like you were tough with the toys back in the day!

    also a comment for the guy or maybe kid saying that we are to old to have those things “I am a mirror the way you see me is the way you are going to look one day” this words may not sound coherent right now but wait a few years and you will see, if by any chance you are old enough to have bought this toys when they came out then let me tell you how sorry I am to know you are so sour and full of sorrow and what an ugly childhood you must had!

    I’ve watched the show “Voltron” but never had the toy robot : ( . I think its cool that you showed us your collection. I remember having the he man toys but back in early 90’s they all were lost. It’s sad that todays kids don’t get action figures instead its all about video games. Back in our days video games were a birthday present or a christmas present because it was just to expensive. Toys R’ Us was the place to be back then when you buying G.I JOES for $2.50 each.I came across some old G.I JOES in their package at Flea market and they were selling them for $85.00 to $125.00 per figure.

    Wow, nice collection. Too bad I don’t have some of the He-Man puppets anymore. They got broken unfortunately. I also had Megatron. That one went broken too and back than it was pretty expensive. You can get it now…boxed…for like 250 euro’s or something.
    I still do have the orginal A-Team puppets and still MOC. Loved that show and the puppets are pretty valuable these days.

    Dam this brings back memories of my childhood. I had so many transformers, star wars and he-man toys as a kid, but alot of them where stolen from shops. My mom couldnt afford to buy them. I got caught shoplifting an ewok and my mom told the police what I hadnt bought so lost nearly all of them.

    I remeber one time when me and some friends found ยฃ200, $350 (1984 money) in a tissue box I bought aload of dinobots with the money. Police had confiscated most of the money from my friends while i was out spending to help boost the economy. I got to keep my dinobots. I hope the money wasnt from a pensioners life savings.

    I was shitting my pants when I saw your He-Man figure. In France his name was actually MUSCLOR, I thing in opposition to Skeletor. Knoing that basically muscle means muscle…They decided “well we can’t call him “Monsieur Lui” so he has muscles, call him Musclor”
    Awesome video by the way.

    I still have my Voltron on display too. I remember when I was about 5 years old, being a huge Voltron fan I was watching the cartoon and saying “I wish there was a Voltron toy!” and right as I said it the commercial for this same diecast Voltron (There was also a large plastic one with space for the pilot figures) appeared on the screen. I wanted that toy so bad. I remember my spoiled cousin got one right away and he abused and destroyed it. I was envious and being one to always take care of my toys I couldn’t understand why he had one and I didn’t. (When you are that young you don’t understand financial issues…)

    At any rate on Christmas morning I couldn’t have been more excited to open up mine! It was always one of my favorite toys from childhood. It is still in fairly decent shape considering it was a toy I played with all the time.

    Whooaaa nice collection you’ve got going there, Mike! It rivals my own! Very cool stuff. Of course, you’ve got a lot of things I don’t have, and vise versa! Very cool. Also, why didn’t we get to see the Techno-Drome! Oh, right… maybe another time… still, very neat! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I refuse to get rid of my old action figures. Now they are relegated to boxes in the recesses of my house. For a while I had them on display much like Mike has here because of all the good memories. My friends thought it was cool and brought back memories for them too. But everybody else just laughed at the idea of a grown man collecting “toys.” Nerd-dom strikes again. It’s not like I still play with them and make my own laser explosion noises. That’s something for basement dwelling losers in their 30s still living with their parents. Hope that doesn’t offend anybody here.

    I have still alot of he-man figures, cars, that huge spider where always the legs fall off and some castles.

    Only action figures i still have are some G.I Joe’s (the small hard plastic ones). and even the full robot of the Power Rangers… X-D

    That’s awesome…brought back tons of memories. I’m trying to remember the He-Man figures that one of my friends had…I think one guy was called Fist-O and had a huge hand…and a crab guy called Clawful or something? I was never into them but was Transformers purist I guess. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I do recall there being one action figure in the 80s that was actually banned from my school. Bringing it to class or even saying his name would get you a trip to the principals office…and that was good ol’ Snowjob from G.I.Joe. I still say it was the best named character ever…oh man did we have fun with that one. ^_^

  • November 12, 2010 at 10:26 pm

    Dude. This is sweet. This brings back some insane memories that have been locked away forever. I had all the ghost busters and the head quarters. I remember having some gobots too.

    You need to find some DINORIDERS. Those were the shit dude!! Dino Riders!!

    Bring on the Dino-Riders

    Yes, Dino Riders was the shit. The Thundercats toys make up for it though, in my opinion.

    All of those toys look great! the only one that didn’t work was the one that needed a battery to operate its red-glowing eyes:-D

    I’m 30 years old and I still have my old action figure toys when i was a kid growing up in the 1980s. And I have gotten back into buying the new Star Wars action figures and no I am not too old for that since there are other people older than me that buy the new Star Wars action figures.

    Also I’ve been talking to my mother about old nostalgic stuff since she’s been also getting back into the habit. She bought herself some old doll and I’ve been trying to find a good Ertl car of the 1980s Dukes of Hazzard car that I had when I was a kid but there’s barely any Ertl brands to buy from online which shocks me.

    I don’t understand why people find it so odd for grown adults to collect action figures. Do they expect them to cherish a collection like this as kids? Fat chance as most toys get destroyed. Any aficionado affords his vast appreciation for his/her subject matter somehow.

    Ah, the Technodrome!! I’d give my best friend’s arm and leg for one 15 years ago ๐Ÿ˜€

    I never liked He-Man because the badguys were like retards and He-Man looked so goddam gay. Cartoons back then had no respect for children

  • November 22, 2010 at 4:16 pm

    I had loads of He-man figures, I never had a prince adam or a felt version of Kit, but I did have loads of cool toys and a dragon waker! B O O M ! http://www.vizzed.com/vizzedboard/index.php?ref=65348

    I enjoyed the presentation of that collection. I was always more into Hot Wheels. I still have like like 50 or so at my mom’s house. I know that’s not much in comparison to how many there actually are, but as a kid who didn’t get allowance, was abused severely on a daily basis, and who had to sell a kidney or two just to afford that many; hell, that collection still impresses me. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Nice figures Mike. It’s great to see that they are in such pristine condition, even after 20+ years! I really want that Voltron (I only have the Black Lion and Yellow Lion)!

    LOVE this.

    Mike: “And over here we have some Real Ghostbusters.”

    James: “As opposed to the fake ones.”

    Dolly: *does spit take on keyboard*

    No mention of the Evil Lyn figurine during the He-Man thing, though? She was by far the smartest member of Skeletor’s gang.

    She was far superior to Beast Man and his routinte of *slobber* *gasp* stupid statement *slobber* *gasp*.

    I had a lot of Ghostbusters as a kid, but I’m not sure where they all went. Had a lot of Voltron stuff, too, and while most of it vanished over the years as well, I believe I still have the original lion force robot still in the attic.

    Never had much He-Man, or any Thundercats/Silverhawks; just couldn’t get into them.

    GI Joes… I had hundreds of them, and while many are still intact due to the sheer volume I had, plenty did not survive my years as a young teen and my unsupervised fun with fireworks…

    It is with a heavy heart that I had to cancel the GI Joe Space Program without ever achieving it’s goal of putting a man in orbit. Please join me in honoring the countless dozens of brave, plastic men and women who lost their lives pursuing the dream of spaceflight.

    hhahahahaha HE MAN! the gayEST superhero ever!!! you have a very good theory Mike! but if they were trying to make He Man manly by dreasing him with purpple underwear…. it didn’t work so well XD

  • Schloss Ritter

    December 16, 2010 at 1:56 am

    A complete Voltron: nice. I haven’t seen a complete set since my cousin’s in the 80s (and he may even have still been missing one). The closest I ever came to something like this was one car away from an early combined Decepticon (the semi-truck and sports car one).

    I had one or two Go Bots, including Scooter, but my siblings’ kids broke them to bits. Also, there were worse cheap “ghetto” ripoffs of Transformers, lines that didn’t even have their own TV show.

    I used to have a couple of He Man figures with “battle damage” chests. You tap them and they’d flip around to one or two sword slashed chest pieces.

    Dude It’s like I took a trip back to the 80’s lookin at those figures I used to have Transformer Figures and Ninja Turtle figures but I don’t have ’em anymore but at least I do have some TMNT figures. BTW Buzz Saw is not light green he’s a light copper colored like in the Silverhawks cartoon but anyway those are totally spectacular figures, man.

    I remember most of toys being on sale during my childhood are there are some I own. Great Memories. I owmed the Skeletor castle (i dont remember the name) the Go-Bots HQ, and WWE Wrestlers as well. I have alot but all of my toys in the garage. Most were sold during garage sale before moving to Spain from Canada.

    Nice collection mike!!! I hope to get enough cash to follow my lord of the rings collection, also I want from classic anime ‘ and marvel action figures… There I have king kong and The thing making friends with Hulk, lol… Rather if He-man looks gay or not, the old series are way better the newbies crap series nowadays … At least the 90’s series were good. Sush as Batman the animated series or batman Beyond!
