1985 TOHO - Godzilla 6"

I flipped out when I saw this listed on eBay for 13 dollars and a couple bucks shipping or best offer.  I flipped   because I thought this was the bigger scaled version.The listing didn't provide any size descriptions,only that the figure was a little dusty and needed a bath.I didn't pull the trigger right away,but quickly shot a message over to the vendor.The seller replied promptly only to verify what I had suspected all along.This was, indeed, the 6 " version.I still wanted It because size aside,this was truly an iconic 80's figure.It was a smaller version of the one that I owned as kid and I just had to have It.Surprisingly ,the seller accepted my offer of  9 dollars,so a total of about 11 bucks shipped!The figure was pretty beat up and full of a white substance,which could have been anthrax for all I know.But  a nice warm soap and water  bath made my eleven dollar purchase look like a million bucks!The same  detailed airbrushing and silver paint apps are as prevalent on Lil G as they are on Big G.I think the smaller scale Is ideal when It comes to picking up larger than life characters like Godzilla,King Kong,Transformers etc. It's easier to build around them,plus ,they are cheaper.  I'm a Dollar Tree visit away from picking up some double headed dragons to duel It out with my new Godzilla fig ;)

Why do you need to go out and get yourself an  80's   TOHO Godzilla six incher ?

  • It's not $40!           
  • Vintage greatness that adds class to  your 80's toy display            
  • Easy to display and build around
  • It's made by TOHO and TOHO Is a fun word to pronounce.It makes you sound like a caveman.
  • Godzilla.Nuff said.

1983 Kenner( Poseable) - Care Bears

I wanted to get things rolling "again" here on 5 Points And Proud exactly one year to date,but It seems I'm a few days late.No worries.I'm back ,regardless,looking at all things great with 5 points of articulation or less.But before I get started,I want to reiterate that our new collector forum Toy-Disorderly Is open for business.Don't hesitate to click on the link and give some of our content a read.If you find something that interests you then you can register and  give us your thoughts on any of the given subjects. We've had some interesting conversations already ,to say the least,and a fresh point of view Is always welcomed.Don't be 'fraid ;)Now,on to the figures.

How can anyone who grew up In the 80's say no to these three adorable faces.I sure couldn't. I've been needing something different to spruce up my 80's shelf of collectibles and I didn't want to overcrowd It with just your run of the mil action figures. I needed some fresh faces to represent that awesome era that was the 80's,and In these three colorful Care Bears I have just that!Care Bears are filled with personality,and It shows,literally.On their tum ,tums.I'm not big on the teddy bears  ,but a  3 inch plastic, pose-able  bear with a hair do Is right up my alley. You can't resist playing with these little guys once you have them in-hand.These came to me pretty dinged up,but I can live with that.They're still pretty damn epic.
