This was a rushed effort,but I'm not that disappointed with the results.I wish It would sit further down on his shoulders .Maybe I can tweak that somehow.What do you guys think?

OK,maybe the SDCC Exclusive GI Joe Revolution set but that's never,ever gonna happen,so,yeah.There's nothing out there that I'm crazy about right now.When Alexis over at Collector's Universe posted about some Mega Construx He-Man and Skeletor figs I thought,mmm well maybe.Plus Mega must mean that they're bigger than normal figures in that style.Negative.They were pretty much the same as Mega Bloks turtles.Wait,are Mega Bloks the same as Mega Construx?Already too much of a conundrum for my frail brain to contend with right now.I'm gonna have to pass.And then there's the Star Wars,Justice League take over.WTF!I don't do Marvel Legends so even though there's always like 70 of them stocked on any given day at my local Wal Mart and Target,me no likey.Not even the 3 3/4 stuff.Fuck POP's. And then what's left after that?Oh ,yeah ,I forgot,more POP's.Fucking Funko!I wish G.I. Joe would come back.Until that happens,It's only retro and Marvel Universe hole filling for me.

I haven't gotten overly enthusiastic about a recently released Marvel 3 3/4 action figure In a long time.In fact there haven't been many 3 3/4 figures at all that I've felt the need to have to hunt down or obsess over.G.I. Joe is dead with the exception of the exclusive (Revolution) stuff which I'll never be able to get my hands on anyways.I only collect Star Wars figures that pertain to the original trilogy,so all this new stuff Is cool but not must haves.I'm done with Transformers (too much of a scale discrepancy) and I've stated before how I'm no DC collector.At least Hasbro keeps churning out these 3 3/4 Marvel Legends figures.Even though It's hit and miss (mostly miss) ,every 2 or three waves there'll be a figure or two that I'm really interested In. Like this Executioner/Enchantress two pack.As far as Thor related characters go,Balder the Brave ,Warriors 3 ,Executioner and Enchantress are personal favorites .I'd love a Balder figure and a proper rendition of the Warriors Three but who knows when that will happen.For now I have to be thankful for 3 3/4 versions of Executioner and Enchantress.Both are stellar figures.Be sure to check Enchantress for wonky eye syndrome.My Enchantress's eyes are a little too far apart.

I'm so glad I was able to pick this set up.It was the last one at my local Target !Of the 300 Legends 3 3/4 figs that are out now ,these two were pretty much the only two I wanted.The Thor /Hulk set looks pretty cool ,too, but It Isn't even close to being on my want list.I'll have loose pics up either later on tonight or tomorrow.Thanks for tuning In!

What stands out the most to me when thinking back on my childhood restaurant experiences are smoking sections .Smoking was allowed not only in restaurants,but also bars,shopping malls and certain places of employment.It wasn't something that bugged me as a kid ,seeing as how practically everybody In my family smoked at the time.I'm pretty sure It must have bugged some non smokers but all in all ,both sides were accommodated.One side smoking,the other non-smoking.I don't know, Is It just me ,are were people generally alot calmer back then?You didn't have to rush your meal to run out for a quick smoke before your 45 minute lunch break came to an end.You didn't have to pop any anti anxiety pills either,one smoke pretty much did the trick.I quit 10 years ago but sympathize with those who smoke today.They are treated like misfits and god knows the shits gonna hit the fan If they ever decide to make It illegal.What's your take?

Well,I can scratch another one off my list.Dr.Strange has been on my radar as far back as the Mesopotamia.Yup,they had Marvel Universe figures.Anyways,I cut costs here by picking one up on eBay listed as "defective". The left leg pops out very easily and because of that,the seller had it listed for 7 bucks.I of course,thinking I'd be able to fix it ,went through with the purchase.I couldn't fix it.It's just a big Krazy Glued mess on that left leg joint,so that's how it shall stay.I may try to use some acetone to loosen it up a little,but idk.The legs weren't very poseable to begin with ,so ,oh well.A good thing he can fly because running will be out of the question.The struggle is real 😓

What's up my fellow toy collectors!I recently got a hand me down laptop and I'm trying her out for the first time here on 2 Minute Toy Break! The pics are from older posts as I have yet to try out the USB functions.
