Used toy run

I recently discovered a magical little "collectible toy store" nearby; a dark, cramped little place resembling the interior of somebody's garage. Somebody who spent decades hoarding toy cars and action figures of every imaginable variety. For just a few dollars, I came away with a wonderful little armful:

The tusked insect from "Sectaurs" was the first thing I spotted that I had to take home. I wanted this particular one when it was brand new in the 80's, and just never got around to getting my own until now. We also have a Stretch Screamers mummy from Mcdonalds, that axe chicken thing from Quest for Camelot, a mystery green monster, a second PROFESSOR, and most impressive of all, a Dungeons & Dragons bendable "Deadly Grell," from the same line as my beloved Carrion Crawler. I already owned a Grell, but you don't pass up an opportunity to own TWO Grell. You just don't.

The mystery monster is pretty neat. He'd be cute and cartoonish if not for the wickedly dangerous-looking teeth. He's hollow like a finger puppet, and has positively no markings.

The second PROFESSOR is missing his BASE FOR GUYS, and shame on you if you don't know what I'm talking about. I really never thought I would see one of these again; they were part of a generic, nameless dollar-store toy line I came across only once, back in the late 90's.

First comment of the decade!

I can't believe somebody else remembers Sectaurs. That's so cool!

Jesus lizard: What's with the frog man holding the shield and sword?
Is he from the old D&D toy line to, or is he another mystery guy?

Nice haul! I too am curious about this frog man. He's awesome!
