Backstory: My collecting mentality started with comic books. I read and collected comics since I could read, my imagination ran wild at the possibility that I could one day use those same powers as my favorite heroes and villains to rule the world...my imaginary world anyway. Remember when kids had an imagination? this is of coarse the days before the Internet and video games and 400 channels of TV....anyway I continued this hobby until about 1998 when something newer and cooler caught my interest (other than girls, partying and adult beverages of coarse) a company called Toybiz started to make action figures of Marvel superheros.
Cool! now I can have action figures of my favorite superheros....soon after that a former comic artist started his own toy company and revolutionized the action figure industry.... the rest, as they say, is history.
Instead of showing everything all at once, I'm going to post a couple of pictures a day, so as not to overwhelm you the reader and so you won't miss anything.
Who doesn't love Popeye? I used to watch Popeye cartoons on the Bozo show when I was a kid, and the memories have stuck with me ever since. Mezco put these out around 2004/5 and I had to have them all. Included is the hard to find Seahag, Alice the Goon, and Pappy. As well as the black and white set in the back middle and the pvc set in the front.
Pink Panther cartoon debuted in the late 70's and was half based on the movie of the same name. Palisades toys produced these for only one year in 2005, then went out of business. Palisades is the same company that made the incredible Muppet's line.
