I'm a sucker!

When it comes to Iron Man stuff I tend to be a sucker. And when I saw these TRU Exclusive Iron Man 2 Mighty Muggs it was no exception! Here we have the new Mark VI Iron Man.
And here we have War Machine! It has been a long time since I have even seen new Mighty Muggs so getting these was great.

One of each please!

Currently my collecting consists of 3 major things; minimates, MOTU, and Star Wars. This post represent all three of those so in other words this was a good week! First off lets go through Marvel minimates waves 31 and 32. First here we have the Variant Silver Age Angel and then another normal Angel (the version after he gets transformed back from Archangel) and then the army builder for this wave is Multiple Man (shown here in his two possible versions).
Next we have the other waves variant of Goliath and then Yellowjacket and the army building Kree Soldiers.
Here we have Captain Brittain and Shadowcat with the coolest minimate accessory yet Lockheed!
Next we have the overly armed X-Force Cable and X-Force X-23. (from the same weapon X program and Wolverine and created using his DNA).
Then here we have the alternate versions of Iron Man and Titanium Man (their normal versions were shown a few posts back purchased from TRU).
Here we have Captain Marvel and Black Bolt. All in all some good waves although nothing like what we will have coming up with minimates like a Sentinel and the Jim Lee X-Men!
Here we have Adora who is also She-Ra for you not in the know. This is the frist time they have made a figure of Adora so it is cool, the back of her card reads, "When Adora and her twin brother Adam were born, the Sorceress recognized they were the twins prophesized to wield the Power of Grayskull. She therefore magically cloned the Sword of He, enhancing it with the Stone of Protection so that each twin could have a key to unlock the Power. But Hordak also learned of the twins and arranged for his Eternian pupil Skeletor to abduct the infants. Man-At-Arms prevented Adam from being taken, but Adora was stolen away to the planet of Etheria deep in the Dimension of Despondos. There she was raised by Hordak, until the day her brother returned, handing her her sword which she held aloft to become She-Ra, the most powerful woman in the universe!" Thankfully my mattycollector subscription went off without a hitch this time and hopefully it will continue that way for next month as Trap Jaw, one of my all time favs comes along!

Next we have SW figure which I have slowly convinced myself to lessen what I buy, here we have Snowtrooper based on a concept drawing by Joe Johnston from Episode V. I love this concept figures so I couldn't pass this one up.
I also love me some SW lego and try as I might I could not get this picture to show up in the post the correct way so you will have to live with it sideways! This is a Republic Swamp Speeder which is cool as I love the Clone vehicles but it also comes with the new Barris Offee minifigure. That will probably do it for now, it may be a while before I post anything so until then. . . .bye bye.

So TRU released a best of Ghostbusters minimates wave with two packs from wave 1 and two packs from wave 2. These are packs that have already been done but there are two variations that popped up so I had to snag them. First you have clear slimer and this one has a full tummy, you can see the food in his stomach as opposed to the first one you couldn't.
Then here we have Louis Tully who in the first release had a name tag that said Tully on it. However in the movie he wears one of Egon's outfits so this correction has Louis with a Spengler name tag as it is supposed to be. Also his shoulder straps and green and the first release they were gray. So being the completist I am I had to pick these up. They also announced a full and completely new wave three for TRU coming soon with a bunch of new ghosts and ghostbusters so I am most excited for that wave.
Then here we have the third variation for this post and the one zillionth variation of Soundwave that I own. This is Electrostatic Soundwave with Buzzsaw as a keytar. I love Sounwave too much to pass this up, although it did take me a while to convince myself to buy it I just knew in the end I had to have him. (Despite his vehicle form being a super ugly boxy car). I haven't posted a lot lately but I have a bunch of minimates in the mail on their way to me so wahoo!

Thanks Karri x2

My Sister in law Karri gave me a gift card to TRU for Christmas and I picked up these expansion Hoth Battle Lego Sets. Here we have the Rebel Forces with a cool little speeder. And below we have the Imperial Forces with a cool Snow Speeder Bike.

Then here Karri's friends were in Disneyland this last week and they picked up the new SW potato heads for us.  You have C3-PotatO, Chipbacca, and Mashter Yoda. All very cool and very cool of my wife to facilitate it all to make sure that I got these.  Love you babe!
