So one of my top favorite MOTU figures as a kid has now been reincarnated in the classics line. Here you have Buzz-Off! This is of course a great looking figure and you can read his bio below. Man I can't wait to have a good shelf to put these on which will give me the excuse I am waiting for to open them all!

Here we have the first Disney store exclusive Marvel Minimate pack of the Classic Heroic age which contains Thor, Spiderman, Iron Man, and Captain America. Yes these are all characters we have plenty of already but this set is a great looking one and I especially like the Thor.
Then here we have an undead Geonosian from an episode of TCW. I had to get this one as it combines two things I really like, Star Wars and Zombies!

I'm gonna snipe you!

So originally Tokyo Mater was only released as a SDCC exlusive but they made a version with oil stains for mass retail so I had to pick him up to go with all my other Cars from that toon.
So when Halo minimates were announced I decided that I would buy a single 2 pack and call it good cause I don't want a whole other line to collect and become a completist with. I am still not going to collect to the whole line but when these showed up at TRU this week I saw this short packed pack with a UNSC Marine and the Camo Spartan and I really wanted to the Camo Spartan so I snagged it. Oh and I took the picture of them in front of the new Tron Legacy Soundtrack which I also got this week and it is incredible!!!
Then this is the pack I had previously decided I was going to buy as it has Master Chief and the Arbiter who is quite the unique and cool minimate. He has a new head design and flipped back legs and the cool weapon he comes with (sorry all you Halo fans I don't know the specific names) is awesome looking.
Then I saw the M12 Warthog LRV mini vehicle and it looked so amazing I had to snag it as well and it comes with a Spartan. This mini vehicle is by far the coolest looking one they have made so far.
Here's a bunch og guys ready to cruise the town.

Its a vintage trap!

So they have continued to make these vintage style figures, but to keep spending down and because some of them shouldn't even be made (i.e. figures from the prequel trilogy) this is one that I just had to have. The Mon Calamari Admiral Ackbar. I love this character and I am so glad they gave him the vintage treatment.
I also picked up a Clone Wars Shaak Ti because A. she looks cool and 2. the one I already have from Episode II is posed in a permanent position so this figures poseability is much better.

Here we have the redo of King Grayskull with some minor changes vis a vis the SDCC version from two years ago. You can read his bio below. This one was an early Christmas present.

I was certainly hoping to find some new minimates at TRU this weekend as it was Black Friday but since I didn't and I really wanted to get something I got this Marvel Universe Modular Armor Iron Man figure, not just because I wanted to buy something though he is a great looking figure.

Fuzzy Wuzzy

So the cashier aisle at Target had this mini Toy Story 3 lego set of the army guy with his jeep so Isnagged it.
Here we have some galactic heroes of Barris Offee and Quinlan Vos. Ihad to get this pack since they are both Jedi and Mara loves Barris because I got her a doll of her.
Here wehave this month's MOTUC figure and it is Hordak's henchman Grizzlor, you can read his bio below. Man Ican't wait to get a good display shelf so that I can open all these up! Next month is one of my all time favorite MOTU characters so stay tuned!

I like the sound of that

So I went to the Disney store at my mall because I am keeping an eye out for an exclusive Marvel Minimate set that they will be carrying and to my surprise the store is carrying vinylmations. They had the Nightmare Before Christmas ones so I picked up this Pumpkin head Jack Skellington.
They also just put a TRU Express in the mall and they had this newest version of Soundwave in his Cybertronian form. I didn't take a pic of him in his vehicle mode because frankly I don't like it. His robot mode though I think is one of the best incarnations of Soundwave yet!

Super Soldier!

This is one of the best minimate sets yet. This is the TRU Exclusive Captain America Through the Ages set that was voted on by fans to choose the line up. This set includes from left to right- WWII Cap, Armored Cap, Cap Reborn, and Suspended Animation Cap. As Captain America is one of my four favorite super heroes I already love this set but it also gets me psyched for the upcoming movie starring Chris Evans, its going to be legen. . . . . .wait for it. . . . . dary!

Exclusives from a different comic con

So the NYCC (New York Comic Con) happened a few weekends back and they had some exclusive sets which got to me today. First we have the New Mutants which includes Wolfsbane, Cannonball, Karma, and Sunspot. At NYCC they also showed an upcoming wave of TRU minimates with a much cooler looking Cannonball.
Then we have two sets from the Age of Apocalypse series in which Xavier is dead and Magneto takes over his dream and creates the X-men team. Here we have Magneto, his wife Rogue, Cyclops and Sunfire. I love the extra head for Magneto that makes him look more sinister.
Then this set has Wolverine, Jean Grey, Dark Beast and the bad guy from this universe Apocalypse. These sets are all fairly random in terms of mainstream stuff but they are new Marvel minimates and I love me some of that!

Jets and Cars

So I had to go to a meeting in SLC for work today and I got up there early enough to go to the Walmart up the street and to my joy I found they next TF Generations Seeker DIRGE! I was very excited as I love the seekers and love these generations/classic versions. Now I just need to get the Skywarp made a few years back and they need to make a Thundercracker and I will have em all!
Here he is in Robot mode.
I got some more Tokyo Mater cars here you have Kabuto Ninja.
And another adorable car this is Cho.

ROBOTO! That's right boys and girls this months MOTUC figure is none other than Roboto! You can read his bio below and be jealous that you don't have one of these amazing figures!

Crazy Drunk Drivers!

Ok so there was a TRU wave of minivehicles and now a comic store wave so here is the Frosted Delorean with Marty in his radioactive gear.
Here he is with his mask down (I am Darth Vader from the planet Vulcan!) and his video camera. Can't wait for the 25th anniversary BTTF set!
Then here we have the Terminator Hunter Killer tank which comes with a pretty cool resistance soldier.
And the tank opens in the back to put in an exoskeleton! These are cool but I really wouldn't mind if they didn't make anymore because it costs too much to buy a vehicle I don't really care about to get the minimate that I do care about!

Dad Gum!

So I picked up some great new toys from the Cars Toons series as you can see in past posts these are some really cute and cool looking toys. This is from my favorite of them all the UFO episode and this is Mator the UFO! Dad Gum he is cute.
Here we have another one from Tokyo Mater, this is Kyandee and she is also very adorable. I had to get this one since I knew Mara would love it!
My sister in law went to Disneyland again and she picked up this Vinylmation figure of my favorite Muppet Rowlf. These are Mickey figures that are painted as different characters or just with cool paint jobs so thanks Karri!

TRON!!!!! Is Back in force!

So Tron Legacy comes out in about 2 months and the toys are starting to hit in force and I just eat it up so here we have the first of two TRU exclusive 3 packs of mini diecast vehicles. This set includes Sam Flynn's Light Cycle, Kevin Flynn's Light Cycles and a Light Runner (the new car thing).
This is the other 3 pack which includes CLU's command ship, CLU's Light Cycle and a Recognizer. Very, very cool! I just wish that they would release some vintage style stuff to celebrate this new movie too.
Then here we have a 6" figure of Sma Flynn that has a light up chest and the coolest new feature that when you push a button his helmet lights up and his face moves and it says some movie lines. What a very unique and cool feature!
Then I found a 3 and 3/4 inch figure size Light Cycle at the Disney store last night that lights up! I also got a cool Tron Legacy zip up hoodie. I wish I could go to Disneyland right now as they have set up a Flynn's arcade with elecTRONica tokens and I'm sure lots of other cool Tron stuff! Man I can't wait for this movie it is going to legen. . . . .wait for it. . . . . dary!!!!

Flame On!

So the newest wave of TRU exclusive minimates is actually a wave of Fantastic Four minimates and I LOVE this wave. First here we have an incredible looking Sue Storm and then our very first Mole Man (although the cape they made him with makes it very difficult to stand him up).
Here we have a great new version of the Thing and Human Torch.
Then we have Mr Fantastic and Dr Doom (I really like the look of this Doom).
Then you have an Atlantean Soldier and Namor.
And this is the cool little poster that came in each set. The upcoming wae of minimates also has more Things in it but also some other super cool characters so I can't wait till those show up. . . . . oh and by the way these last bunches of minimates puts me at a total of 904 total unique minimates! So 1000 here I come!


Ok so Minimates now have the Universal Monsters license and will be releasing minimates from a few of these classic movies every year before Halloween. There are TRU exclusive waves and comic book store waves and I have decided to just stick with the TRU waves so that I don't have to pay shipping. This first package here is the Wolfman and Larry Talbot.
Then here we have a glow in the dark Creature from the Black Lagoon and transformation Wolfman.
Here we have the Creature from the Black Lagoon and Dr. Reed (or as I like to call him Scuba Steve).
The the TRU exclusive pack is a black and white version of both the Creature and the Wolfman. Other movies slated to be released in this collection are Dracula, the Mummy, Invisible Man, and Frankenstien. Pretty cool.
Then here we have another car from the Tokyo Mater toon this is the DJ from that toon and his name is Yokoza.
