1986 Lift-Ticket

By KansasBrawler The Tomahawk was one of KansasBrother’s big vehicles back in the day, so I’ve known about Lift Ticket for a while and I’ve always liked him. While I didn’t realize it at the time, I think subconsciously, my brain must have noticed that Lift Ticket and Sky Patrol Airborne shared bodies and that’s why I went after him.

Frostbite (2003)

By Past Nastification My hatred of head-to-toe repaints runs deep.  Grand Canyon deep.  Looking at this “Frostbite” figure takes some mental energy, because it’s just a Snow Job figure with the wrong name thrown on it.

Lift-Ticket (2013)

I like to think he’s just super versatile. He graduated top of Special Weapons School class, so I can see his being able to transition

HISS Driver (1983)

I was much more conscientious with Star Wars in that respect, maintaining all of my original toys. The Joes and Cobras unfortunately fell by the wayside, for the most part. I had thought that the only figures that survived the teenage-years purge

Cloudburst (1991)

It’s rare that I feature a figure from my collection who’s incomplete. Sad to say, since I started the blog, my disposable income has diminished, and there are some figures and vehicles I probably won’t be able to complete. Such is the case with Cloudburst, one of the fantastically colored and interestingly accessorized Air Commandos. So right off the bat,
