I got these yesterday. Both in EXCELLENT condition, with all the pieces, the spring operated holes on the backs to put the figures in work fine, the bits and reigns are there, etc. The guy wanted $22 apiece OBO. I offered him 12 for each and he accepted, and combined the shipping. I think in total I paid $30 for the 2, including shipping. Now I need the Bronze Dragon and eventually the Tiamat and I'll have all the bigger monster figures (Dragonne, Hook Horror, these 2 horses and those 2):
I like some of the PVC's ( the Odious Ogre, Lich, Fire Elemental, Umber Hulk, the dwarves are alright, same with the orcs and the Sark Mercenaries), some look really bad though, like the Troll and the Troglodyte and the Bugbear IMO. The bendy's are cool for the most part, I love the Carrion Crawler and would like to get e Deadly Grell in mint condition without the paint peeling. I have most of them though. But yeah, with the horses, I'm just displaying them as they are, without the riders. I'm just planning on eventually completing the set, but I collect other things too, so it wil progress slowly. I have a good start though.Takes up most of a shelf.

Yes dont rush it. I was a little upset when after about 6 years of looking i got the last item i officially wanted for the set (the northlords shield shooter hawk). I was always looking over the AD&D lots and enjoyed that...now I have moved on and dont every really look.
I still need the bronze dragon and a strongheart and zarak battle mattic. I have most of the PVCs myself...just need the flame elemental the crown treasure and the purple litch guy...o and that ambull or whatever thats always missing the tusks???
Yeah, that's the Umber Hulk. I have him with his tusks, brand new condition. I have his backing card too. I got a few really great deals on 3 seperate lots of AD&D stuff, he came with a bunch of the other PVC guys and all their backing cards/bubbles. I'm usually not a completist, but I am with Starriors and probably eventually will be with these. (and I have a pretty big JLU collection and SHS collection, plus my Windups, which I try to complete certain series of, like all the Tomy flip floppers, all the Not So Grand Band, all the Minimals, etc. and I have almost all of the Pee Wees Playhouse Matchbox figures). But I like having variety in my collection wich I definitely have, and I'll but any cool vintage videogame merch as long as its cheap and in good shape. I lost out on a Q Bert Halion handheld last night...(I buy any Q Bert stuff if I don't already have it)
I just picked up the Bronze Dragon, the Deadly Grell, the 3 Dwarves of the Mountain King figures and the 2 Heroic Men At Arms. I have basically all the PVC's and bendy's now, except for the Chimera, the Bug Bear, the Terrible Troll (who I don't really want) and the Hydra (and the book of Spells accessory):
My Mandoom arrived!! $40 for this figure in this condition was a good price. Everything works fine (the battle mattic and the shield shooter), the legs are as stiff as they were the day they came out the box, it's not dusty at all, he musta cleaned it, all the accessories are nice, just has a tiny dot of missing paint on is right hand. S psyched to get him for this price!!
Next up I'm planning on Mettaflame, Hawkler and Deeth, then eventually the other 3 SS figures and Tiamat (and Bugbear, Hydra, Chimera and Fortress of Fangs playset) and I will own the complete line. (it's gonna be TOUGH to find a few of those shield Shooters loose, like the Young Male Titan, I saw a cadrded one for sale, but no loose ones yet...

The shield shooters I pieced together bit by bit. I'm still missing the accessories for the Ogre King SS. Goodluck with the hunt! Great score on the Mandoom too, his design is one of my favorites from the LJN line
rocklord, have you actually seen the villains from this series?
Yeah, about 4-5 years ago on ebay when I was tracking down G.I. Joes. I remember just horrible looking figures. They really did look like crap, lol. I have a pic of elkhorn/bebop figure and it's just a repainted elkhorn, no other parts at all. I'm trying to work out a trade for him now. I'll post a pic of him later tonight.
Do not resent growing old, many are denied the privlage.
I love the mask on the orange guy, looks like Dumb Donald from Fat Albert with the too big stocking cap..lol
Ha, he does. There's also another set of the turtles on different card and with just the headband masks and not the full skullcap. I think I have pics of that to. I'll post it later tonight with the other pic.
Do not resent growing old, many are denied the privlage.
oh, that' s AWESOME! It would be funny (but devious) to post that in an AD&D collectors form ad a variant or a prototype Elkhorn you saved from your days working for LJN. Tell everyone it's not for sale
(just kidding obviously, to anyone that was about to jump on me for joking about deceiving anyone)
Anyway, here's my collection so far. in the back of the first p[ic is my carded Cave Fisher, I don't have a case for it yet so I keep it in a ziploc til I get one. Also in the last, pic, right past the Dragonne, there's a small pile of bags with figures in them, I keep my really nice Mercion and Ringle runs in bags and display my more beat up ones because they have clothing that can get stained or dusty siting on a shelf, also a double Kelek in the bag. Anyway:
I still need Hawkler, Deeth, Metaflame, Ogre King Shield Shooter and the other 2 shield shooters, Tiamat, Hydra, Bugbear/Goblin, Chimera, Zaraks dagger and the Book of Spells accessory that came with Odious Ogre and the Fortress of Fangs and the collection will be complete. (other than all the battlematics which isn't a necessity, and the Terrible Troll which I'm not really fond of it's looks)

I wish they would do a PVC set also, especially maybe with some of the extra characters from the series namely random vilians/heroes. I love the design of the cartoon, and some of the coolest episodes are the ones featuring warduke and strongheart.
Post by 80s Action Figures on Feb 22, 2012 18:36:52 GMT -6
Zarack was in the intro...but was he ever in a episode? I remember the episode with Warduke and the one with Strongheart. Also Tiamat was in a few episodes and the Hooked horror...o and Kelek was in one as well...anyone else?
I loved that cartoon, but I can't remember it too well as far as what characters were in it. Anyway, just got the Chimera and Hydra bendies, now I have every bendy and all the PVC's except Bug Bear and Terrible Troll, and all the dragons and Horses except for Tiamat, and all the first series figures and few of the of the 2nd series, I still need Deeth, Hawkler, Mettaflame and the 3 shield shooters.
