Lucky collector's week
In a way, TMNT was my first collection. Of course, the very first one was the original Masters of the Universe, but the difference is that when I grew up and my father asked me to give away my MOTU figures I was OK with it (I saved only the ones I thought were specially cool, like Mantenna, Clawful, Trap Jaw and some others), but when the same moment came with my TMNT collection, I said "no, why not keep them?". So they stayed in a box for ten years or so until I found them and displayed them.
This week I got four additions to my TMNT collection, which is a rare find in Argentina.
Ace Duck. (When I found it, the wings were backwards)
Fugitoid. (When I was a kid a friend of mine had this one and I wanted it oh so very very much, now is mine, mine, mine. I'm not obsessive, shut up)
Metal Head, and...
Leather Head (They didn't spend a lot of time thinking of characters names in those days, did they?)
