Mail away and belated Birthday

So since Mattycollector stuff doesn't go on sale until the 15th of each month these two birthday presents are a little belated but incredible and awesome nonetheless! First we have Trap Jaw, given to me by Breanne, which if you scroll down to the bottom of my blog you wil know he is one of my all time favorite MOTU characters. His card says, "An insane criminal from the dimension of Infinita, Kronis was one of several evil warriors freed from an intergalactic prison by Keldor to bolster his ranks during the start of the Great Unrest. After serving Keldor for years, Kronis grew ambitious and raised an army of his own to challenge his master. Now a powerful overlord of Evil, Skeletor, defeated Kronis - breaking his jaw and arm and leaving him for dead. Found and rebuilt by Tri-Klops, Kronis was transformed by him into Trap Jaw, a man armed with combat weapons and an "Iron Jaw!"" I love this figure and the added coolness comes because he comes with an extra arm and head so that you can make him be Kronis and then transform him into Trap Jaw! My woes with my mattycollector subscription are not over but I think they are under control enough to just be happy that I am getting these figures!
Next (sorry I don't know why it won't make the picture appear correctly) is Battle Cat, given to me by my mother-in-law. This is the first over sized figure and it is so amazing that it makes my eyeballs pop out of my head! His package reads, "A member of the Green Tiger Tribe, Cringer was saved from a parek-narr attack by a young Prince Adam and afterwards became his devoted companion for life. He assisted Adam during his quest to unite both halves of the Power Sword of He and afterwards was enhanced by its power to become Battle Cat, the fighting tiger of He-Man. Cringer is one of only a handful of allies who knows Adam's secret and fights alongside the other Masters of the Universe carrying He-Man into battle against the forces of evil." I told myself that once I have a really good display case I am going to open all these figures because I can't handle not being able to play with their amazingness. This toy here only enhances my desire to want to open them! For now they will just adorn my wall in all of the coolness!
So Hasbro is doing an exclusive mail away figure for Nahdar Vebb who is the Mon Calamari Jedi who was Kit Fisto's padawan who is seen in the episode Grievous' Lair on The Clone Wars series. So I have purchased several figures so I can send the upcs away to get this figure. The first here is the one of these figures that I actually really wanted and it is Hondo Ohnaka who comes with his pet red Kowakian monkey lizard. This is a unique and cool figure and I couldn't pass it up because of the pet KML!
Then I got this figure of Aayla Secura because my current version is from Episode II and she is posed, not poseable and so this version is much cooler.
She also came with flight gear.
And this here is another qualifying figure that I didn't have a real excuse to get until this promotion. This is the best looking and articulated Yoda they have made so far and he even comes with a cloth robe so he is uber cool! I also used the upcs from my Cad Bane and concept Snowtrooper figures and have mailed away for the Nahdar figure so I am excited to get that one!
