In Lieu of a Real Post, Some Action Figures

I am back home, and I have limited internet access. I don’t have time to write a long, substantive post. But I do have a bag full of action figures from when I was a kid. I haven’t seen these in 20+ years. There are several I don’t recognize. But I am looking forward to harassing my wife by decorating the house with them.

Recognize any of the more esoteric figures? Any of these you owned?

    The rabbit in samurai armor is Miyamoto Usagi from the comic Usagi Yojimbo. Because he crossed over with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles a lot he got a figure in their toy line in the 80s.

    Yup, I recognize the MOTU and TMNT. Some of those vintage figures are worth decent money now.

  4. The tanned and muscled guy on the bottom row is Jitsu of MOTU.

    The blue and red gentleman to his left (our right) is the X-Men villain Mister Sinister.

    The orange and yellow dude above Mister Sinister is Sabretooth. Next to him is Hondo Gecko of TMNT.

    A bit more obvious, I see Doctor Doom (next to Mister Sinister and Sabretooth), Penguin, Riddler, Robin. Gambit, Spider-Man, Venom and Doctor Octopus up top. That green vehicle above Doctor Doom looks like a miniature Scorpion (the Spidey villain) toy but I’m not very familiar with it. I could be wrong.

    Miyamoto/Usagi Yojimbo, Shatterstar, Orko, Skeletor and He-Man have already been named. That He-man is specifically ‘Thunderpunch He-Man’.

    Some are just beyond me: The orange and pink Mohawk guy, The yellow and black beast guy. The battered gentleman in the flat cap. I can’t identify them.

    The two figures that are really annoying me are the black figure with four arms and the guy with the yellow bug eyes and hair/and or antennae, near Orko and Skeletor. I feel like I should know them and I don’t. I have seen them before but…man, it’s driving me crazy. The four armed one looks like it should/could be MOTU; it’s hips are constructed in the same way. Argggghhh!
