FLEA MARKET & THRIFT STORE FINDS - PART 2

Here is my second installment of this series. Some interesting characters / figures that I have no idea who they are or where they came from . All of these figures come from those discounted "grab bags" that I love so much . There's no telling what you may find in those grab bags . Here goes .
Who is this guy ? A cool looking figure in my opinion with his light purple and blue colors. Add in the yellow and he is one colorful looking figure, literally . The cape is cloth . Decent articulation and he's almost exactly six inches tall as you can see . Looks like a super hero character to me .
This guy is right at six inches tall and I have no idea who he is neither . Since I do not know the character I'm not sure rather his right eye is covered by his hair or is it closed . Even looking at the toy it is difficult to tell . If you can recognize him he would make great custom fodder . Not just the figure but his clothes also. You can remove his boots,etc. and place them on another figure.
Need some extra characters / figures to display alongside your G.I. Joe figures ? This guy would be perfect for just that . The helmet does not come off however he looks as if he's a military themed character .
I have no idea who this diver is . He reminds me of Aquaman , but I do not think this is Aquaman in another outfit, even though he favors him and seems to be in the same profession . Dealing with water and the seas .
Who is this Yoshi looking character ? I've seen this character somewhere before a long time ago but can't quite put my finger on where he's from . Even though he kind of resembles Yoshi from Super Mario Bros. fame I know that's not Yoshi . However I do think he is a video game character . At least he looks like one.
Power Rangers ? I assume he is he looks like a Power Rangers character . I do not know since I've never been much of a Power Rangers fan . A cool six inch scaled figure though with some nice points of articulation.

Here's another figure that can fit in with your G.I. Joes . The reason I've taken two pics is because his yellow outfit almost camouflages with my twelve inch ruler . So I displayed a second pic of him without the ruler because of that, so that you can get a better look at him . Nice articulation and just like the life guard looking figure he too looks like a sea man .
Finally a character that I know . Even though I know it's Darkseid, I just don't know about what kind of toy this is supposed to be . Anyway you can press the lever on the back to make Darkseid move back and forth.

One of the vehicles out the the Tron franchise . This vehicle looks like a McDonalds Happy Meal toy but I'm not sure . As you can see one of the above mentioned figures can fit nicely on it .
Finally a wind up toy. I love wind up toys they are so much fun to watch zoom across whatever surface you lay them on . This little robot guy is pretty fast, and look at just how fast he is in the short video clip below .

There you go folks I hope you all enjoyed this article . Expect more like this in the future as I visit more flea markets and thrift stores .

  7. The cycle is definitely the same sculpt as the Robin Teen Titans cycle, but I never saw it in those colors. Your version looks like it must have come with Cyborg. http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/419WXA1M25L.jpg
