More pick ups from Walmart (pictures are taken from the Net):



I still dislike Funko Pops, but this one looks rather cool, and my genwunner side really couldn't say no—I was actually considering getting this one from Walmart's website, so I'm glad I didn't because I got it at a better price.



The original MOTU figures were one of the many toys I grew up with, so when I went to the toy isle and saw these two, I picked them up on a whim. They also had Battle Cat, but the price was a bit more than I'm willing to pay for it, although I'd like to get it eventually. In all honesty, though, I'm dreading now going on a frenzy and wanting to collect the rest of the series...and any other that comes after.

Got a few things in lately, most of it being stuff I've had pre-ordered for abit.  Cutting down on my toy buying for abit, so not much else planned for a little while, but here's what I got recently

Star Wars stuff has been good, I got the Electrostaff Purge Trooper, which I'm all for a black armored trooper, though the effects for the staff are terribly designed. They don't actually attach anywhere, they sorta just have to sit carefully, which is really annoying.  Got my Armorer and Beskar Mandalorian, probably the last of the Mandalorian stuff I'll buy for awhile until they release something from the new season I really want.  And today I got the long pre-ordered Super Commando Mandalorian figure.  Honestly, it's not a good figure, visually it's a cool design, but it's on the old Jango Fett body and is kinda shit for posing and I think its leg is slightly short on one side, but the paint and helmet look cool, so I'll probably keep it.



And then I picked up the Blue Variant for the Starboost Iron Man from the Avengers game.  I don't really want variants, but I think its such a cool suit and color, I figured why not.



And then I got myself the Retro Wave Snake Eyes they just put out.  I don't really collect much GIJOE, but I had the 25th Anniversary one and I thought I'd get this one to to go with that as I have a very small selection of Snake Eyes stuff...

Damn! That Super Commando Mandalorian figure looks awful. The other three look slick, though.

The Iron Man does look cool, but in all honesty I want to get that Marvel Legends wave just for the Mr. Fixit BAF—the best Hulk. Walmart stocked on them recently, but when I got there all they had left was a Captain America.

Speaking of Walmart, they had the Kenner Classics line for The Real Ghostbusters, which are actually exclusive to the store. Just like with MOTU, these were also a series I grew up with as a kid, so I didn't hesitate picking them up. I love having these, they recreated everything to a T, it's like a trip down memory lane. I hope I can find Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man and Green Ghost (aka Slimer) to complete the set.

Added a little bit of everything over the past few weeks.

Grabbed some more vintage figures to the collection, namely some Episode III stuff.


Also got a few of the bigger, more posable stuff. These ones won't stay in the box once I figure out a good spot for them.


And I got some more Lego sets for that backlog. I honestly like the Ninjago lineup as it's like 80% giant robots, which are great for lining the shelves with.


Finally, I've snagged up a fair amount of board games on sale to add to that collection. Only had a chance to play Fallout Shelter and Pandemic Hot Zone out of those so far. With some epic bad luck, we managed to lose one game of Pandemic in 3 turns.

I have... a mighty need.  I had so much GB stuff when I was little.

Dunno if this helps anyone but saw the Shredder/Ras al Ghul 2-pack on clearance at GS. I'm pretty sure it said it was GS exclusive.

Me too. Ghostbusters were a big deal for me as a kid, just like the Turtles, and still are a big deal. I missed out on the re-release of the classic TMNT figures, so I sort of feel redeemed by getting these.

Not particularly interested in that, but I've been trying to get other stuff from their website for weeks now and I just can't. Their website is just utter trash.
