John Gaither recently sent me over a lovely box of fantasy, toxic waste, and knee high serial killers. Let's jump right in and look at the contents of this blast from the past.
First up we have Gargo and Kadray's helper from Black Star. Each one a villain or at least a henchman. Now I'm not really that familiar with the show, but that is not really a big deal. Unknown figures can be a segway into a new obsession. So I guess it's time for me to get my Black Star on YALL!
The awesome feature about Gargo is his light up chest, which is triggered by a spark flinter in his back. Also the wings..,.the banana yellow wings.
Next we have Blackstar himself with his gorgeous feathered hair and arms that resemble a stack of cantaloupes. He reminds me of a Mexican He-Man, but that's just me.
Hiding in the trees far above are Paulo & Balkar the Trobbits....not be confused with Hobbits of course.They must be distant cousins of the Smurfs. Hmmmm
Here's a better shot of Black Star, just because.....
Now we get to the muck, salad mix, & the not so safe childs toy.
Introducing Major Disaster ladies and gentlemen. A brute with a heart for suburban house mom's. Former soldier turned fungus hybrid, this figure is just close to my heart. John nailed it with this one. I have begun the painstaking process of piecing together my Toxic Crusaders collection and this little dude just gave me a head start.
Old Swampy! Kenner rocked the marker for years and I'm okay with that. I love all 5 Episodes of the Swamp Thing cartoon in my youth and of course the figures as well. This particular goody extends his arm and retracts it back. Whiplash style!
And Chucky. With his vacant stare and Reading Rainbow colored pants trim, he's a huggable little tot. Put out by Funko in a Mystery Box, this figure sat along side such nasties as Jason, Michael Myers, & Freddy. Even with his height disadvantage I would dare say he could hold his own.
John you're just awesome sir....
