Action Figure Action!


So . . . I splurged on a few Marvel 
action figures over the summer.
 
How could I resist 
World War II Captain America 
and Agent Peggy Carter? 

HOW?


And because I enjoyed the recent Disney+ series 
"The Falcon and the Winter Soldier" so much, 
I also bought Baron Helmut Zemo 
and a rather pissed-off Winter Soldier

(Zemo is holding the Soviet Red Book
containing the code words which turn 
Bucky Barnes into the Winter Soldier). 


And look what my sister 
gave me for my birthday! 

SQUEEEEEE! 

Captain America Sam Wilson 
in all his winged glory!


She said it was the most money
she'd ever paid for eight inches of plastic
that didn't also run on batteries and vibrate.

We've got a big box full of such figures in the loft. I want to throw them out but evidently we are keeping them "for when we have grandchildren". I suppose if we do, I'll be the one that plays with them most.

Lady M said...

Ha ha your sister has a wicked sense of humor. You must have quite the action figure collection.

Mistress Maddie said...

Love them...but is the Captain America and Sam figures hung?

And I said the same thing your sister did during the pandemic of " was the most money she'd ever paid for eight inches of plastic that didn't run on batteries and vibrate."

Who knew they got so expensive girl?

Peggy Carter action figure! Wow! How cool is that!

Val Ewing said...

I love action figures! These are awesome! I've gone with the 4" size as they are a bit more reasonable.

Marie Smith said...

Lol. Your sister is too funny!

I will be dying over this, and sharing with friends, all day long.

Hello Debra, I have never seen action figures that were so detailed and recognizable as real people before. Are your altars safe from invasion?

I liked the character Peggy Carter she handled those dressed up boys brilliantly! Keeping POP culture alive and well! Well done!

NanaDiana said...

Well-those are great but I laughed right out loud at your sister's comment! Hope you and The Rare One are doing well and enjoying the last days of summer. Hugs- Diana

Leanna said...

This N That said...

Captain America is lookin great.Love your sisters comment....Have a good weekend..

Tundra Bunny said...

Wow, you have enough "action figures" to make your own home movies now! May we expect your directorial debut soon?

Boud said...

Now your sister has a great marketing idea there, combining the action figure with some -- action.

Mike said...

Has anyone mentioned anything about your funny sister yet? I had a good LOL when I read that.
My SIL has a Starwars collection. It looks like it could be good post fodder.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Travel and @ Breenlantern (Sassybear) -- Thanks for the link! Impressive DC superhero and memorabilia collection. I'm an amateur collector compared to you, Sassybear!

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Sixpence Notthewiser -- Hey, what those action figures do on their OWN time is THEIR business, lol!

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Parnassus (Jim) -- If my violently-inclined dick flick action figures try to invade my Full Moon Altars, they will be repelled by Goddesses of War like Athena, Freya the Queen of the Valkyries, Ishtar and Durga. They've been kicking butt since forever.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Tundra Bunny -- Coming soon to a Porn Hub video near you!

Busy Bee Suz said...

Your sister is funny!
Congrats on all your NOT dolls!

e said...

Agent Peggy Carter is dishy! I'd say yes!

And, I'm now a fan of your sister... cut from the same cloth, eh?

Fundy Blue said...

I see humor runs in the family, LOL! How could you resist, indeed! Enjoy your growing collection! And have a great weekend too.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ e -- I'd say yes to Peggy Carter too, LOL! And indeed, my sister and I have a very similar sense of humour and outlook. We can be real double trouble!

DVArtist said...

Oh very cool. I love them.

Joanne Noragon said...

I had a Captain America motorcycle helmet!

Bill Lisleman said...

thanks for sharing what your sister said - very funny. I like the wings on the last one.

Coffee is on and stay safe

Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness said...

very nice choices. Love that Falcon America figure.

Moving with Mitchell said...

These are all so cool!

And “She said it was the most money she'd ever paid for eight inches of plastic that didn't also run on batteries and vibrate” has made my day!

Barbara said...

I haven't watched the Falcon yet. My daughter collects the bobbleheads of Marvel. I'm afraid I'm already invested in too many other collections to get involved but I really like the WWII figures.

Kirk said...

You must quote your sister more often.

Guillaume said...

I have an Action Man action figure. They are uber cool. I miss my old GI Joes.

LL Cool Joe said...

Happy dusting! May your plastic action figures bring you many years of happiness.

Ur-spo said...

I remember it was in 3rd grade when teacher asked us 'who plays with dolls'. All the girls and I raised our hands. The class and the teacher were aghast. She asked me about this. I explained I played with GI Joes. The boys took umbrage, shouting they are not dolls they were action figures. Yeah right.

yellowdoggranny said...

those are reallly cool..I don't know why, but I've never been all that excited about the movies...but the action figures are way cool.

The Blog Fodder said...

Speaking of action figures, the little girl told her mom she wanted a Barbie Doll and a GI Joe doll. Her mother said that Barbie comes with Ken. Little girl said no, she fakes with Ken, she comes with GI Joe.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ The Blog Fodder -- HAHAHAHAHA!

Polly said...

I like your action figures. Captain America is impressive. Love your sister’s comment!

Rommy said...

I was squeeing over the dolls, and then ROTFL with that last comment. Nice. :D
