Micronauts: Hornetroid

IMAG4117

   This week has been a great one for Vintage Toy finds, here at Quantum Multiverse. Earlier in the week I found a Penosh Place Voltron Black Lion for 79¢ at a second hand shop. That was a really fun find. I suppose, since the legs were tucked in, they thought the piece was broken. It wasn’t. Except for the missing pilot, it was all there.

   Yesterday I received two new toys, a 3¾” Ming the Merciless by Mattel, and most importantly a boxed Micronauts’ Hornetroid, by Mego! It is missing one piece, and it is pretty loose, but it gives me all the nostalgia feels. This toy, along with the Shogun Warriors’ Godzilla, were two of the first things that I had bought with my own money. Great times 🙂

   Last week I had picked up a Kenner Super Powers’ Wonder Woman, a Masters of the Universe Extendar, and Skeletor! ?

   This is the (right) stuff of dreams! Many of us owe this individual much gratitude for hours of entertainment. I pulled the prototype Falcon image for two reasons, it’s awesome, AND it is a photo that I have personally never seen before.

It’s the New Rebel Trooper!

   I love the retro style figures that the Vintage Studio creates. Done in the Kenner style, these figures are not as much of a What-If, and more of a continuation of the original line. The Rebel Trooper was a glaring omission to the vintage line, and now you can own one (or four) to add to your collection. The price is a bit steep at $30, but considering the amount of work they put into the figures it’s a steal, plus the quality is apparent. Check out their website, it is a visual treat.
