All my homies together!



I went ahead & bought Drac. Fuck it he looks cool and is especially badass next to the rest of the characters!
The only one that's missing is Phantom of the Opera. Not sure if they've got him planned but it would be sweet as hell if the made him where you could pose him sitting at his organ & a switch-out masked head

I like these better than the 7" figures Sideshow did. A little more detailed & the have better accessories.


And looking at their NYCC gallery, looks like the Invisible man & the Mutant from This Island Earth are next:

New At Target this Week.







I finally found a second Tie Bomber on clearance. That $40 tag was way too high.



The Force Unleashed Box Sets at TRU









Marvel Universe Thor Movie Series 2



MArvel's Hogun! is there another I don't know about? This figure, although should have been in his comic acurate outfit (not the production teams fault I know) would have looked just as good if not better.








The very under sized Volstagg

I did it again, fisrt with the Captain America Hydra Soldier, thinking the bright green version was a variant instead of an entirely different figure.
Now we have the Destroyer Armor figure from the THOR movie. Yes one is #11 the Black version #20







Moving on to DC

Black Adam and Shazam DCUC 2 Pack. I still have not seen the Joker and Harleyquinn 2 Pack.







For what ever reason, most likely because people don't have a clue, these were in the clearance section. To that I say thank You Walmart.



Thank You Mattel! Can I thank you with one hand and slap you with the other?
Matty.com Exclusives, Not really, and boy I hate finding out the hard way. Apparently these were sets that never made it to retail and they offered them on their site. Which was great and all, but the Matty.com individually boxed exclusives that I have come to know and love was skipped on this job.
And the shipping method left little to be desired without that added protection.











But this is how they were shipped to me. Evil or Very Mad





Moving onto LEGO
I finally raised enough money to get the Death Star. I want a second one before the end of the month to get Double Points.
This isn't much to look at and will remain so until it leaves the Lego Store Inventory. At which time it will promptly go on e-bay.
This was a total investment purchase. I don't collect Star Wars LEGO. Smile



I also rangled my third Prince of Persia fortress from Target clearance.





45 Dollars was the magic number for me on this one. 39 dollars was a no brainer.



And finally I got another Combine Harvester, I love this thing and I don't see many around at TRU.

Since it's Luke's Tauntaun I'm guessing no it became Wampa Breakfest. Laughing

Razz

I was thinking the one in the box w/Han & the Rebel snow troop.

I might get that one, though. I kinda want the clean shaven Rebel Trooper and the other sets I saw him in were either too expensive or wasn't interested in.

I didn't see it today but I did get Bastilla Shan from the KOTOR game. Very glad to see they finally found a way to get her out!

I wonder if they have to say "Marvel's Hawkeye" because of some copyright issue with M*A*S*H, or "Marvel's Destroyer" so not to get an action figure of a giant silver monster confused with the Kiss album?

Oh well. Hey I found the Target Tauntaun sets! Han's does indeed have a split belly, and Luke's has the broken tusk!
I passed on the landspeeder. I still have mine from the 2003 re-release and I think appearance wise, it holds up pretty good.

And TRU has the Street Fighter 2-packs. I guess they look alright, they definitely don't look shitty as their MK figures, but I think they kinda fucked everyone with the scale.
They look a little too big to put with the 3.75" Marvel figures.

I got the phone number from another site that I go to for Star Wars that helped me get these.

Star Wars Disney Box Sets

I've always wanted the Muppet & Disney Star Wars figures. They need to sell those online or at least in the Disney store. They'd make a killing!


Saw the 6" Thor figures at walmart. The comic Loki looks pretty cool but the movie Thor's helmet is sculpted on & doesn't come off. scratch

Saw the DCUC Blackest Night wave & got the Blue Lantern Flash & Atom I've been wanting.
Also saw the DK Batman/Police Joker 2-pack. No sign of the Arkham City Joker/Robin, though.

I also got the SW Lego Advent Calendar on sale for $35 at Target. I've seen it at TRU for $50
I remember at SDCC people were lined up for a mile to try to get one, so I'm happy to see it hit retail.
A pretty cool price for 31 mini vehicles & an exclusive Santa Yoda!

Most of them.
I never found the Backstage playset w/Rolf and the cheapest I've seen it on eBay is $90 loose.

I have most of them too. Missed out on Statler and Waldorf and a few others. I have Zoot which was really hard to find at the time.

That was back when I was hitting up TRU nearly everyday for Marvel Legends, LOTR & such, so I eventually found all the ones I wanted.
Probably the best deal was finding the Pigs in Space playset for $5 at an old EB store that was going out of business.

walmart is clearing a lot of stuff out, The Crime Syndicate box set has been clearanced to $49.97 & the 6" Cap movie figures are now $7.40 so I got Cap & Nick Fury, which is one of the best Sam Jackson likeness I've seen so far and a new best for Hasbro sculpting.
