Where have all the weird toys gone
As a kid I was really into collecting action figure sets and I always liked the weird ones, because I was weird. I wanted to do a post with some of my favorites. I collected quite a bit so this may get long… sorry (Gillie!!)
Look at these things, they are anthropomorphic foods dress in army fatigues. You can’t see in the picture but they are basically squeaky toys with hard plastic, muscular human arms stuck on them.
The vehicle is an egg carton turned into a tanky type thingy. None of the characters are even eggs. I LOVE IT!
The classic tale of pigs and sheep murdering each other with heavy weapons is finally brought to american children.
Again, these vehicles are amazing. That biplane is one of the coolest things I have ever seen.
Not much to say here: Bucky O'Hare was a green bunny in space who fought frogs with his four-armed duck friend. Normal.
The frogs’ spaceship looks like a frog. I have been saying for years that the reason humans still haven’t conquered space travel is we don’t make our rockets human-shaped.
Great game, good cartoon, and amazing toys. I still have these and they will be displayed once I have the space for it.
THE TOXIC AVENGER
Look at these craaaazy colors.
First of all I never liked the cartoon. In fact I hated it because is was never as weird as the toys, and that really is true. I also never collected the toys of the main four turtles unless it was the weirder series. My favorites were the crazy side characters.
That’s right, these are Civil War Leo and Raph. This set also tells you that Raph was for slavery, makes sense.
The entire fantasy set was great but dwarf Don can’t be beat.
This exists so all is well in the world.
Ninja Turtles version of batman, Wingnut. His robin is a mosquito, wonderful.
Now for the really weird ones.
This is Pizzaface, the grossest toy in the history of the world. You can’t see it great here but I always loved the fact that his pinkie is sticking out on his right hand because he is classy.
Just like most people at walmart this guy is a trash person hahahahahahahahahahahahaha!
I have no idea, but I did have this one and it was one of my favorites.
Yep,that is farmer Donatello with a tractor. There was also a Raph with a tractor. I had both, obviously. Like real tractors the hub caps are pizzas.
Remember when the turtles flew around on a giant deformed mosquito?
I saw this character in the store once but though I was maybe getting a little too old to buy it so I didn’t. Not a day goes by that I don’t regret that decision.
