My nbeighbor and I were playin with Jurassic Park toys. We had to move though cuz his dad was gettin ready to mow the lawn. we picked everything up (little did I know tht I had forgotten 2 figures, Deter Stark, and Nick Van Owen (Rare one). The lawn mower went over the spot we were at and to my horror poor nick was choped into pieces but he managed to be on top of Deter protecting him from the blades. I burried Nick tht night in my neighbors back yard. I was really sad tht he had to go but his sacrifice was not in vein cuz he managed to give his life to save Deter. tell me what u think, pm me with u thoughts.


:shock: :shock: :shock: If I were wearing a hat I'd take it off. My brother left a toy out on the lawn fore a whole year but by freak luck it was next to a trea and didn't get run over by the lawn mowwer. It was a small toy and I found it a yeare later. It is a litle faded but appart from that it's ok.

Thank u my friend tht was lucky for ur brother at least the figure knew what he had to do to escapade death by mutilation at the hands (wheels) of the evil lawn mower lol The worst part for me though is al be damned if i can find another one at any sites on the net or at any comic stores.

Left a Marvel Legends Punisher MOC at a goodwill store for 4 bucks. My logic was that I had one already...

Years ago I went to my local walmart like I alwayz do cause i was a hard core action figure collector then, back before marriage and kids...sigh...I really miss those days where one can spend his entire pay check on action figures and not bat an eye. Anywayz I made a B-line right to the action figure aisle and I found 2 Toybiz Marvel Legend Juggernauts. One was in a pristine package and the other the package was crushed. I of course just bought the nice package one since back then I was a pure collector and never opened anything.
Now that I am a customizer I open almost every figure and alwayz wished I would of bought them both at 7 dollars a piece. I also sold a Deadpool on ebay for 15 bucks and thought at the time wow I bought the figure for 7 bucks and sold if for 15 I doubled my money and was pretty happy. Geez what a dope I was. LOL

When I was younger I was given a box of Star Wars figures by my cousin around the time Return of the Jedi came out. These were late 70s/early 80s figures in great shape. I lost every weapon, broke arms and heads off and managed to destroy most of them. The worst part is I traded the ones that werent ruined(about 15 figures, mostly droids and a Boba Fett) for a few Archie comics ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)
I did find a Chewbacca a few years ago when my Dad renovated his house, It was under the basement steps mixed in with alot of clutter.

I lived in Japan for 3 years and passed up SO much. My biggest regret is not buying Microman stuff which is dirt cheap there.
I assumed it was part of a series or something and I kind of feel like a fake buying toys I don't know about.
Not a big anime fan buy the Fist of the North Star figs were amazing and would have been great for customs, too.
