Hey, Mr. Postman!

A friend asked me if the picture of the boxes at the top of each installment of Hey, Mr. Postman! are the actual boxes the featured toys came in- why, yes they are. I hope I'm not boring you with these posts, they are fun for me because any day I get toys in the mail is (laughs) A GOOD DAY!

*DC Direct 13" Martian Manhunter!  I was so jazzed to get J'onn J'onzz in this scale, especially for the nice price of $35.50 (shipping included was what made him such a bargain). He came without his box, but at that price who cares? I was gonna take him out anyway! He was is pristeen condition, all parts inspected & accounted for. I've been fascinated with Martian Manhunter ever since I read DC: The New Frontier, and among the list of comics I want to read in 2011 is the Martian Manhunter graphic novel, Others Among Us.

*DC Direct New Frontier Series 1 Blackhawk- he rounds out my New Frontier action figure collection, now I have them all now. I'm not a completist, but $12.00 (shipping included), I just couldn't say no... this line of figures' retro-styling is so cool. "Leader of an elite squad of heroic airmen, Blackhawk battles enemies and Super-villains alike!", it says on the box... Bitchin'!!

More on these guys later- I'm out!


  1. I don't know if I've already mentioned it but you should try to track down the Ostrander/Mandrake run on Martian Manhunter from a few years back. While you are at it, grab their work on The Spectre too!

    Not sure what types of collected volumes any of that is available in (if at all) but it's probably pretty cheap and easy to get the back issues.

  2. Blackhawk for the win! Great looking figure.
