Almost the last of the last

So Hasbro is not going to be making the Star Wars Comic 2 packs anymore (which is lame since there were a bunch announced that I really wanted) so these two sets are the last (other than a retailer exclusive that is available online now that is just a little too much for me to buy right now of some more rogue squadron pilots). Here we have Jedi T'ra Saa and Master Tholme.
and from TOTJ we have Exar Kun and Ulic Qel Droma. I love EU figures and having them be jedi is even better!

More more more!

Well this month's MOTU figure showed up speedily! Here we have Moss Man complete with pine fresh scent! His card reads, " Thought of for many centuries to be an urban legens, the creature called "Moss Man" was in fact an ancient Eternian nature god and ally to King Grayskull. During the rise of Skeletor and the subsequent battles with the Snake Men and Horde invaders, Moss Man often joined forces with the Masters of the Universe helping to protect freedom for all forms of life. He was instrumental in helping them win the Second Ultimate Battleground using his powers over plant life and his "fur" of forest green to fool and frustrate his wicked foes."
I got my waves 33 and 34 in the mail today for Marvel minimates still going strong. This wave has Hellfire Club Guards and then Black Queen Jean Gret (left) and the variant Black Queen Selene.
Then you have the 90s comic and cartoon versions of Beast and Rogue,
and 90s Cyclops and Jean Grey.
The other wave comes with some really great looking Sentinels with different arm attachments and flight bases, then you have Rachel Grey (left) and the variant Rachel Summers with her Phoenix force base.
Then you have Thor and Lady Loki
and last you have Anti-Venom and Menace with a really cool flight base. Hopefully that cools down the toy incomings for a while as my wallet really needs a break!

Great scott!

So this GI Joe 25th anniversary set of the Defense of Cobra island has been a large desire of mine since I first saw upcoming pictures of it early last year. But it was released with a Joe set that I didn't care about and this was only available online and you had to buy both sets to get it and getting this one Cobra set on ebay was way too much so I had given up trying to get it. Then I saw a post on a forum I go to saying that Ross (yes the dress for less store) had these for 16.99 (when normally they are 30 $ each!) So I cruised over to our local Ross and BAM they had it so I picked it up and as you can see I have already opened it up because the figures are great and I am now thinking I will probably open up the rest of my 25th Joes and have them all on display.
So here is a boxed picture of the set which includes (from right to left) Dr. Mindbender, Lamprey, Range Viper, Alley Viper (my favorite), Night Creeper, B.A.T. (battle damaged version) and Air Viper.
Also at Ross they had some internet exclusive (why they get these I don't know) of some SW mighty muggs that I normally wouldn't buy but they were only 5$! so here we have Wicket.
and a Wampa (with a removable arm!)
and an Imperial Guard!
Next we have an Iron Man 2 Mega Block set which I bought because my nephew Spencer had some Halo Mega Block figures and I thought they were cool so I figures I would snag this IM set and it is pretty nifty.
Then I got wave 3 of GB TRU exclusive minimates. Here we have Egon and Titanic Ghost.
Here we have World of the Psychic Peter and Vigo the Carpathian.
Here is courtroom Ray and Nunzio Scolari Ghost.
Last but not least we have courtroom Egon and Tony Scolari ghost. I have more minimates coming in the mail tomorrow so it won't be too long before the next post!

TRU and Trade

Last thursday TRU got their 6th wave of exclusive Marvel Minimates in (but not the Ghostbusters ones darnit). This pack is Stretch Attack Mr. Fantastic (and he has a really cool and unique wrapup base to replace his normal legs) and then you have World War Hulk from Planet Hulk which was a comic event and a Marvel animated movie that we watched recently.
Next we have Klaw and Secret Wars Storm (with her punk mowhawk).
Then we have battle damaged Wolverine and a cool new Captain America.
Last we have the 1st appearance Iron Man Mighty Mugg which I procured ina trade on my forum with ragincajun713. I almost got this Mugg at Walmart a while ago but my impatience with their stupid systme not being able to ring it up when I wanted to buy it meant that I passed it up so now I have through this trade.

Reaping the Benefits

Ok I am not in the typing mood right now as I just did some homework but the computer is on so I figured I would get this done now instead of tomorrow. Iron Man 2 toys hit shelves this week so like the IM sucker that I am I picked up a bunch. This here is the token keep it in the package Stealth Operations Iron Man.
Here we have War Machine, his guns flip back which is cool and each figure comes with a three part armor card that is nifty.

Here we have the new armor for the upcoming movie which is the mark vi and this here figure has a glowing chest when you push his head down!
This is Hypervelocity Armor.

Then here we have another picture that won't load up correctly but it shows you on the bottom the first mini lego X-wing they did and then the one just released that is much much coolor. (I put the old one in for comparison)
They also did them in attack shuttle.
I also picked up this IM bobblehead because he is in the classic design which I love.
Then last but certainly not least I have a couple of free gifts from my best friend Kenny who gave me this awesome GOUF Custom Gundam, this is not the first one he has given me but it definitely the coolest.
He also gave me this die cast incredible Delorian. It doesn't fit my BTTF minimated though which was a bummer but this is sweet and it even has a switch on the bottom to flip the wheels out into hover mode.
