    Plaid Stallions Bags of Fun: Action Figures

    As a kid, I figured out that combining these sets with other dimestore novelties could result in some B-Movie goodness, so I had Cowboys vs Giant bugs and Army Men vs Dinosaurs quite often. This is the only skill of merit that I taught my children.

    Nothing beats my Tim Mee outer space Star Wars knockoffs. LINK. You had X-Wing Luke, Leia, Chewie, Artoo, Vader, and a Mercury Astronaut . They also sell them "Jumbo Sized", which is probably the size they were originally sculpted at.

    I loved a few years ago when Hasbro started selling essentially licensed Star Wars Army Men



    The packaging was awful, and they were a bit pricey, but what a dream come true to have real Star Wars "Army Men".
    PLEASE HELP ME WITH THESE CARDS:

    Some fun random purchases over the years, although I don't recall that much variety. It was usually just army men and cowboys/indians, but I did get some knights and space figures along the way too, as I recall.

    I find myself really loving these things now. I got the Incredibles 2 Tub O' Figures last year for Christmas, and I love them!

    I'd really love to get my mitts on more Ideal Justice League, and would sell my soul for Godzilla vs. Tricephalon.

    These are really a microcosm of the love/hate relationship with some of the toys from my childhood. I always wanted them, thinking they looked really cool. BUT... the moment I had them, I'd set them up and then lose interest. I guess I just didn't have a strong enough imagination to make up for their complete lack of articulation. I was always disappointed with what, for me, was a lack of "play-ability." I know, blasphemy!

    Adult collector me really digs that display, though. I'd love to add that to the toyroom!
    WANTED - Solid-Boxed WGSH's, C.8 or better.
