Who you gonna call? He Man?

Some TRU Exclusive minimates to complement the upcoming wave 3 from Alien. You have Kane in his spacesuit a Xenomorph and then Lieutenant Gorman frmo Aliens.

Lucky to find the new Marvel Legends Deadpool at the store because they are going for way to much online.  Not the biggest fan of the look of his face here but can't pass up a great Deadpool figure!

Walgreen's exclusive wave that was elusive at the store but I got for roughly the same price on eBay.  You have Shield armor Spiderman, Power Princess, Iron man, Nighthawk, Spiderknight, Man Thing, and Powerman.  I love that we are getting some never before made characters in these waves, just wish the regular waves came out as often as the Walgreens ones!  There are two more waves announced so more to come from Walgreens!

Rogue One toy premier was midnight September 29th so I had to go. I only snagged two figures (Getting the legos for Christmas)  I had to get this Sabine figure to add to my collection of Mandolorians!

Of all the figures from the new movie this was the one I had to snag because I like the look of K-2SO the droid from the upcoming movie. This one I left in its package as the packaging sample for my collection.

TRU had the minimates for the new hilarious Ghostbusters movie which is good since I didn't want to buy the whole wave.  So you have Holtzman, Gilbert, Yates, and Tolan.  Great movie so had to add these with all my other minimates Ghostbusters.

So I got that two pack of these Loyal Subjects MOTU figures of Beast Man and Trap Jaw at SL Comic Con a month ago and now the blind boxes showed up at TRU so I picked up two boxes out of a brand new case and AAAAAAAUUURURURUGHGHGHHGHG I got TWO duplicate Beast Mans!!!!  I was so pissed I wasn't going to buy more but decided to risk is and got Triklops, He Man and Man At Arms.  So good that I didn't more duplicates but unfortunately I didn't get the two I really want (Skeletor and Man E Faces) So I may have to go to eBay so that I don't get more duplicates.

Comic Con how I love thee, let me count the ways.

Clearance item, Boba Fett bam boom into my collection.  I am not the biggest fan of these mashable characters but this one looks cool so I snagged it.

So glad that TRU added this wave of TMNT minimates because otherwise I would have to get them in blind bag which is lame.  Here you have Casey in a spacesuit, a Kraang, Salamdarian, and Bishop.

Then we have fun new versions of Leo and Donnie and then space suit versions of Raph and Mikey (already have the Space suit Leo and Donnie fyi)  I love that Donnie comes with a welders mask. They do a great job with the accessories. Leo came with some comic books of the different cartoons that they watch during the show!

This was the Civil War TRU exclusive pack (the rest of the wave I have on order at Lukes Toy Store.  Here you have Falcon and Antman. I love that Falcon comes with a little Redwing!

Here is the new Titans Return Headmaster Blaster. I love Blaster and Soundwave but they haven't made a lot of cool Blaster stuff so I had to snag this one.  I love his boom box version too (see below)  He is a bit hollow and light which is a bummer I wish he had more weight but he looks really great.

Now that we have Amazon Prime and I was ordering something else I figures I would snag this set on clearance because I wanted Maestro and Joe Fixit versions of the Hulk. This is the Hulk Through the Ages set.  I love the accessory that Maestro comes with the Iron Man Helmet, Cap Shield, and Mjolnir.

At Comic Con this year I snagged some great knock off lego minifigures of Green Arrow, Rogue, Spidergwen and Psylocke.

I also snagged the Pop vinyl of Rush because I love Megaman stuff and have nothing of Rush. He is cutre (even though like the Mashables I don't really care much for Pop Vinyls this one is cool.) It is also frustrating how many booths are nothing but Pop vinyls they are taking over everything.

Then I found ag reat booth that was seling these cool new Loyal Subject mini MOTU figures.  This Trap Jaw and Beast man set looks great, can't wait to get it open and see what the quality is like.

Then My holy grail from this con is this MOTU filmation version of Trap Jaw. Breanne tried to order it on Mattycollector when it came out but their website had problems and she didn't get it so when I found this one for less than what they are going for on ebay I was stoked.  Love, love love these MOTU figures!

My toy collecting habits have become quite diverse over the years while more focused thus creating an amalgamation of toys that I collect.  I collect specific things, things I like, and things that are new and cool.  Yet I limit what I buy to things that I believe I won't want to get rid of in the future.  Here you have Disney store exclusive Rey and BB-8 figures.  They are similar to the black series in size and articulation but they are made mostly out of metal so they have some serious weight to them.  This figure was a purchase to replace the fact that I want the 3 3/4 figure of Rey with a lightsaber but the chances of me finding her at the store at this point are slim so I picked up this great figure.

This was a clearance buy.  I really like the look of these Lego character figures so when I found this Poe at 50% off I had to snag it!  Now I need a clearance general Grievous!

I am not, in general, a fan of the Po Vinyl figures but when it comes to Mega and Protoman I had to snag them! I  love the look of Protoman but not really the face of Megaman.  These are still great little figures.

I still love building toys and I love Gundam so when I find one that I like the look of I snag it.  This is from Build Gundam so they are all custom fighters. This one is Exia and will not be the last Gundam I buy!

I like the show Gotham but didn't get any of the minimates because the box sets were like 23$ so when this one showed up on clearance on amazon for 11 I grabbed it!  You have Oswald Cobblepot, ALfred Pennyworth, Bruce Wayne, and Selina Kyle with her little Kitty that Melody didn't want to give back to me, she loved playing with it!

Lastly we have the newest wave of TRU minimates. This is a Deadpool themes wave so I was very excited!  You have Hulkpool (irradiated by the Red Hulk) First Appearance DP, FA Wolverine, Deadpool Now, and Spiderman dressed up like Cable.  One thing is for sure I cannot get enough minimates!

Turtle Power

Diamond keeps knocking it out of the park with their Ninja Turtles minimates. These are the newest TRU ones.  You have Dark Horizons Raphael, Pizza Party Michelangelo (I love the extra heads with different expressions), then Space suit Leo and Donatello.  There is a counter display of blind bags that corresponds to this wave that has the other space suit turtles and others that I am sure I will pick up at some point.

Then the TRU wave also has an exosuit Kraang, Fugitoid, Commander Mozar and Chrome Dome (I wish Chrome Dome and Triceraton looked more like the vintage ones since those were some of my favorites but these will do)

You speak my language

Today is Father's day so I will finish the post with the gift my wife got me but lets start with some other things I have acquired recently.  Here is the Walgreens animated minimates series 2.  You have Iron Spiderman, Dark Avengers Black Widow and Iron Man and a Drax and Gamorra to go with the Groot and Star Lord I got a while back.

Next we have some legos. This set is from the new Farlanders lego series. I haven't seen the show but like the ship, wanted the new Dengar figure and had to get the new character Naare because she has a lightsaber (I don't know what she is though)

Then I got a sweet deal 30% off so I snagged this Resistance fighter x-wing because I love X-wings even though this is exactly the same as Poe's stealth X-wing just with different colors.  This one came with a Poe, Lor San Tekka and a Flametrooper.

Had to pick up this two pack at TRU because Rawlf if my favorite character so I had to pick it up.

Disney Infinity isn't going to be making new ones so they are cheaper now and there was a sale so I picked up this Vader figure just because it looks cool.

Then I picked up this two pack at TRU as well of some Predators from Pedator 2. You have the Berserker and the Shaman.  If I was made of money I would be a completist with these but for now I pick and choose the ones I like the best.

When I was a kid I had this toy called Spinjas You can see in the picture below that you put the little guys in the spinners and wind them up and then spin them in the arena and they fight.  I have wanted to add this representation of my childhood to my collection for a really long time and finally found a good deal on ebay.  So here it is.

Last but not least my wife speaks my language here and got me this classic filmation style Skeletor figure from the MOTUC line.  This is definitely one of my all time favorite MOTU figures ever. I love the colors and the style he looks flat out amazing.

Turtle power

So we went to St. George over Memorial Day weekend and I found this Gotham minimates 2 pack at Barnes and Noble.  Detective Gordon and Bruce Wayne. I like the show but haven't bought any of the 4 packs because I don't want to pay shipping, so when I found this at regular price at the store no shipping I snagged it up.

I went to a Walmart down there and found this classics 6 inch Donatello based on the movie character.  I love the extra replaceable heads and was excited to snag this figure with the new movie coming up (which I saw last Friday night, it was ok but not as good as I hoped, I liked the first one better)

I also snagged this bear model that is from Gundam because I thought the girls would think it was cool.  I got this at the Barnes and Noble also.

Today at Walmart here at home I found wave two of the Megabloks Turtles so even though I don't like blind bags I found the Slash, the cool cowled Leo and the mutagen version of Donatello (I of course had to get the Donatello figure)  I don't necessarily care about Megbloks but these little minifigures are cool, I hope they expand the line to cover other properties.
