The last vintage stuff I got was the Tom and Jerry figs from 1989. !!!



And even those are more in scale than the new Jazzwares line.

Picked up a Cobra Claw and Demolisher at the AZ Collector swap meet this Saturday.

Also a short horned ML Loki and MOTUC Fisto, but those aren't technically vintage.

It was a nice way to spend an hour. Not worth a weekly trip, but maybe every couple of months.

Nice scores everyone!

Dan, as a SW guy myself, love that rancor! Given your love of all things vintage 3-3/4 I think you'll like these!

Whoa! Nice work, there. You got all the accessories! That's the hard part about that old Gabriel line. I have all the figs but not all the guns!

Just recently got some Gabriel LONE RANGER and Kenner BUTCH AND SUNDANCE figures/horses. Kind of beat up but still a fun bit of nostalgia. I actually prefer loose figs anyway.

Man, we're all collecting the same stuff right now! I just won an auction yesterday for the two Butch and Sundance horses. Only thing I'm missing now is Sheriff Bledsoe. I wish I had some nostalgia for this line, but honestly, I don't remember it at all from childhood. But I definitely had some Lone Ranger and Zorro.

I'm extremely picky so I had to have all the weapons to go with the figures! Lone Ranger was MOC when I purchased him, my wife came home from work,for lunch and collected the mail, left him in the box, but not out of the reach of the dogs. I came home to a mess of cardboard found the figure in great condition with no chew marks and was happy, then soon after realized the guns were gone and suddenly Cheech and Chong was running through my head! "I had to follow the dog around for a week to get my stash back". A glimmer catches my eye from under the dinner table and BAM! The bubble with both guns still taped to the inside. Ahhhhh came the sigh of relief!

Sorry for the long story, but just has to share the story of this Lone Ranger and his guns!

That was at first a gut wrenching story and thankfully had a happy ending! Glad you didn't lose those guns!

I've found it really hard to collect those old Gabriel lines loose (since I want all the accessories, too.) I posted a blog a little bit ago about stumbling on the sword for the Zorro figure in an old box of LEGOs. I counted that a major victory!!! I really only need one more sword & pistol (for Captain Ramon) to complete the Zorro line. But there will be no way I'll find those without just buying a carded figure.

Dan - I have some scans of the mail-away playset if you are interested in putting one together.

I think it may have been else3573 that posted one of the ChemToy Fat Albert figures in here a while back..... Bucky wasn't it? Anyway, when i saw that pic, the memories came flooding back and i remembered having a couple of these. Well i dug them out of storage and ended up i had Mushmouth, Bucky and Dumb Donald. I couldn't believe i didn't have a Fat Albert! Needless to say i do now :D .

Love me some garage sales. I'm not sure if the little rubber guys on the right of the Dungeons and Dragons are D&D too.

Oh, very cool! I think the real thing is pretty rare as it was a mail in. I'd love to get the scans, T-bolt. Thank you. Depending on the dimensions, I could print it out here at work and mount it on some thicker stock. Be awesome!

Cool! I've always wanted a nice set of Fat Albert figs or PVCs. Kinda surprised how little F.A. merchandise there is out there. Be great if someone would get the license and release at least the whole gang. Bill, could you show us a pic of your set?
