Super Powers Superman redo!

Remember my Super Powers figure I got.  Faded paint and no cape.  Well my artist fixed that one really quick.
He now looks awesome.
 He looks brand new I gotta tell ya!
The sign on the back could be just a little better but I am not complaining.  So happy to have the beginning of the JLA again.

It makes me want to buy the Super Powers figures that have no capes just so we can restore them.

Also included in the toys I picked up was this Toybiz Thor and the guys on his left and right that I do not want..Yeah I hated him when he first came out too.  No cape, a ridiculously long hammer etc. The other two Thorlike characters I have no idea who they are.  They will go for sale in the Monster Cafe display case.

So I am going to have to redo this Toybiz Thor.
There.  THAT looks much better.  That is a Thor one cannot do without.  My artist Raymundo painted him up real good and MADE the hammer and cape.  Not bad.

I hope to make my own 5 inch Justice League Avengers!  I am talking the Super Powers line mixed with the Secret Wars line and some Toybiz thrown in.  It will be epic.

The guy that started me into blogging.  He encouraged me to start a blog of my own.  His blog is Action figure tactics.  He did right by me.

 Tony paid attention to my posts.  He sent me additional Atlanta Braves cards!  Also WCW cards which I have never seen before.  Batman forever as well and one Wacky Pack!  So grateful.  I gotta get one of those baseball card books now to feature them in.
 He sent me the dollar Tree Snake eyes and a grunt!  So awesome.  I only had one modern Joe the Jungle Viper so this is well received!
 Not only those but look at this!  A 3.75 Batman and Croc Master!  He must have seen my rubber croc blogpost!  Now I GOTTA do a custom Batcave now.  CrocMaster was my favorite as a kid.
The grand finale is this mole digging type vehicle.  I cannot wait to bust up some Mexican Earth to pose this badboy coming out of it.  He also sent a MMA fighter.  Have no idea who he is but I will use them none the less.

All of these are my favorites.  I tried to pick only one and couldn't do it.

Thank you Tony for everything!

My train is coming soon and I promise to get back to all bloggers with care packages and Leigh.  Things are slowly turning around.

I was working at Baskin Robbins in GA when the movie came out.  We had a little comic store near there called Oxford Comics.  I LOVED that store!  One wing of the store was comics and toys and the other wing was used books.  Over the years the used book wing went out of business and Oxford Comics relocated to it's own store.

I was in full Batmania in 1989 and had the movie book.  It seemed like such an event in itself to even have the book.
Well thanks to Amazon I finally have it back.
 IT is like going back in time!  I plan on getting all of that summer back one day.  Here is the start of it.
Don't we look alike?  Two clowns!

 Here is the rest of the loot from the Batcave I originally wanted.  All of these will be in the Monster Cafe display case for sale.  I do not really want them etc.

This must be a Marvel Legend or something but without all the articulation.  Captain America.  I do not do 6 inch figures.
Oh yeah.  These three I will be keeping.  A Batman forever Kilmer redsuited Batman, a purple Animated Batman, and a very good articulated Bale Batman.  However I still want the perfect Batman...The Super Powers one.
Spiderman figures.  I want none of them.  I want the Secret Wars one someday.
These must be Mcdonald's toys.  Have no need for em.
Penguin for sale in cafe...the other Batman's I will keep.  I will collect as many 5 inch Batman's as I can keep.

Sorry...I just have to post a pic of them together...
I must have the Wolfman and Mummy one day.  These are just too cool and one of the many reasons I opened up Monster Cafe Saltillo in the first place.

Included in the Batcave lot were these two MU's  Silver IronMan is my first figure to do West Coast Avengers but he was not on my list.  The Guardsman was.  Would love to get three more to have an army for a Vault scene.
