Junkyard dog action figure
I was looking for the dog with the green nose as part of my collection, but it's not the one I need, so, I came to ask if anyone knows where I could find a similar one.
The dog in question is a red toy dog, the original was part of the JUNKYARD DOGS series. As you know, this series is not very common but there are some of them in some toyshops. The dog I'm looking for has a dog in a basket as part of the body.
Hi there! I'm searching for a little red plastic dog with glasses on top of the head, similar to the one in the picture. Unfortunately, I've been unable to find the figure for quite a while. I know I've seen it somewhere before, but unfortunately it's not at home right now, so I can't find it. I hope that the description above helped. Thank you very much for your help!
Thank you for the explanation and the picture of the figure. I found the dog with glasses for a reasonable price. I'll try to post the picture of it in my gallery.
I have a feeling this is going to be a long, long thread to get through, so I'll try to summarize my progress as best I can. I have now completed my Junkyard Dog action figure, so I hope I'll be able to post pictures soon. I have the two figures of the dog from the Junkyard Dog line, the dog and the basket in the picture in my gallery and the figure that I bought from toyshop. I have not, so far, managed to find the figure with the dog in a basket in the dog figure. As you can tell, there's a lot of figures to be done. I have a lot of them, but in addition to having a Junkyard Dog action figure, I also have many, many other dog figures.
I have a suspicion that I won't be able to complete the collection on time. I don't know what to do about this. Should I keep going and hope that I can complete it, or should I stop and come back in a few weeks and then try to complete the rest? Should I not worry about it and just enjoy the figure I have already completed? Should I start agn from scratch and hope that I can finish before December? Is this common for people who are going to collect action figures?
The first figure is pretty nice and it should be enough for me to consider adding it to my collection. I hope that it will be good and not have any problems, and that I'll be able to post pictures as soon as I have one to show. The fact that this figure is also avlable from Target doesn't help.
I'm not going to buy anymore figures until I know for sure that the first one will be good.
My plan for now is to let this collection continue to accumulate but to buy a couple more figures until I'm sure I have a good one. Then, if it is good, I will collect enough to buy the next level and so on. This way, I will have some figures to show on my blog, and will be able to do a review of the figures before buying any more.
In the mean time, I'll continue collecting other characters. The next figures that I want are two new Jumbo-Dogs. I am really starting to want these figures, and I am still in a position where I can easily get them, as long as I can pay the full price.
What do you think? Should I stop collecting now, or should I continue and try to get more figures?

I really have to confess that I'm having some difficulties with my dog collection. I really want more dogs but the quality of some of the figures is not acceptable to me. So, instead of buying a figure and having to spend two weeks wting for it, I decide to keep my collection going, but buying only when I can afford it. This means that I have some figures to review.
Today, I am going to start with one of my favorite figures. He's a regular character who is one of my most favorite Jumbo-Dogs, so this will be interesting.
The basic figure stands 1.75" high and he has a rather long torso. The sculpt on his head is not impressive, but he's cute enough to make up for it.
The best part of the figure are his tl and feet. The feet are really articulated and the head is movable to show him rolling on his back and to show the front and back of his body.
In the middle, this figure has a hole that you can put his tl through. His tl is sculpted in a really nice way, with a nice curve and you can see the tip of his tl. He has also a hole to put in his eyes, so you can have him look in any direction you want.
Finally, he also has a few holes to put in his ears, so that you can have him listen to what he is doing.
Overall, this is one of the best figures that I own, and is worth every dime. His tl and feet are fantastic and he comes with a nice pose. Definitely, a definite buy if you see him in person.

Just about every year I try to update my blog and post new links and posts. There are a couple of new categories that I created to organize what I post about. I also try to post a few new things that I think are interesting and some of the new things are new pictures that I want to share with the readers. I also started to upload lots of images that I took on my camera. If I have taken something that is really cool and would like to share, I would like to make sure that I give credit where credit is due. In other words, these are not all my pictures, but they are the ones that I have permission to use. I hope that I can get the same deal with the few pictures I have taken of other peoples stuff. Also, I was thinking about posting new comics, but I am not a real expert on doing that, so maybe another day.

I thought that this next set of pictures were really cool, so I thought that I would share them. This is from an art opening that was held this past Wednesday, at Art Basel in Miami. The owner of the gallery invited this artist to have an art exhibition. The gallery has several works by this artist, but this one that I have posted is one of my favorites. You can actually feel the texture of the fabric. He is not just drawing it, but he has created this work. It is very interesting to watch this artist as he created this. I don't know if there is a video of him creating this, but I am going to see if I can find one. Any way, I hope that you enjoy this artist.
