I'm sure I could work it into something usefull, but I already have the Wayne Manor playset & an atempt at a pretty big bat cave.

I guess it depends if I ever find this thing on clearence, & if it doesn't work the kid gets it.

I found the Mega Construx CoD Infantry/Mercenary Outposts today @ WM. I bought a few, but I'll stock up on more when Amazon has one of their quarterly blowouts.

You must live in a magic fairy land where WM's "clearance" prices are more than 10% off.

My WM's will sit on something at MSRP until it starts to biodegrade in the package.

Nah, I just have enough Wally Worlds in the area that I can stumble on the deals when they do happen. I will admit the deal on the LEGO is an outlier. I haven't scored that well since the local one cleared out Masterpiece Sky Warp and the BAT-ST.

I've accrued a stack of LEGO kits. It's fucking ridiculous. Found out these are going to be produced and I predict they may be in my future.

The big ones that actually combine have been a bitch to find. Seems like every store just got the Black lion and none of the limbs. Who the hell wants the shitty little $10 lions that don't make Voltron?

I remember when the originals came out, I wanted them badly. I couldn't find them anywhere but there was a kid in my neighborhood who had one of them, so I got the idea about trading with him. He liked baseball cards and I had a small amount that was almost willing to GIVE away. I let him "borrow" ALL of my cards, he said it was so he could see if any of them was worth anything. In the mean-time, he let me hold on to his one Voltron lion.

Well, he chacked them out and said none of them were worth anything so I had to give the lion back. And of course I had no idea how many cards I let him "borrow", so for all I know he DID find a few that were worth money and kept them...I wouldn't have be any the wiser.

I bet he laughed about that for a long time...even if he didn't keep any cards, he still dangled that carrot in front of me and then ripped it away, and all of the kids in my neighborhood were assholes, that's the kind of shit they would do.

Found BS gold-arm C-3PO at walgreens today. His articulation kinda sucks, but it's not like the real character is a ballerina. I'm glad to have a representation of him on the 6" shelf. That red-armed thing was a no-go.

Got these in from Ebay, vintage Fisher Price.


Pretty good pieces from a collector point of view. Not too much paint wear and the clarity of the helmets is REALLY nice, which you don't often find with these. My only real complaint is the dirt around the shoulders of the white/female astronaut. I tried using a magic eraser on her, but the dirt didn't budge.

Bought a figure from one of those foreign sellers on Ebay that have multiples of the same figure. The sellers name is tunghori. Seemed like it showed up pretty fast considering where it came from.

Got the 4" StarLord/Ronan & Dr Strange 2 packs.

These are really good figures, Ronan has a bit of a belly plus trench coat, which should be a good base for a Bullock custom.

The arsto projection Dr Strange is a good custom base for anyone who wants a Mordo. Or you could get some clear paints & make a movie accurate astro DR Strange.

So, weird Amazon glitch the other day made the SW Black 6" Snow Trooper available for $9.71. I tried to buy several, but it kept saying the seller (amazon) only had one. So I bought one. Then I went pack to the page, and it was still available at that price, so I bought another minutes later. Both sold by amazon, not a third party seller. I figured what the hell, worst case they just cancel them. No biggie.

Package arrives today, and it's got a 6" Snow Trooper and a 6" Sabine Wren. Normally I would complain about an incorrect order, but I'm pretty sure she's harder to get than a snow trooper, so I guess I'll just keep my yapper shut. Still, I got both for less than $10 each, so that's a win no matter what. Bizarre nonetheless!

Found my old Toy Island 4" Terminator figure the other day. Reminded me that there were several others in the "line". Robocop, and Rambo I think.

The Terminator came with a gun, too bad he can't hold it.
