The seeker

So when I was a kid my parents got me and my borthers each a seeker G1 Transformer. Morri got Skywarp, Ben got Dirge, and I got Thrust. I loved them all (since they all eventually got passed down to me) but Thrust has always been my favorite. Well they finally made the updates classics version of Thrust that I found yesterday at TRU and I couldn't be more happy!
Here he is in Robot mode.
And with the other two classics seekers that I have, Starscream and Ramjet. My friend Kenny who is the Trasformers king also told me that they are going to do a Dirge too (there is also a Skywarp that came out a while ago that I don't have but I want a lot). These are great looking updates of awesome transformers.

Its about time!

Well here we have at long last a Keldor figure in my collection that I was given for Father's Day! Keldor is Skeletor before he was Skeletor and well you can read the bio below. The 200x line had a SDCC exclusive Keldor figure that came with a Keldor head, an acid burning head, and a Skeletor head and he is one of the only two figures I didn't get from that line so I was so excited to get this figure today!!!!!

I ain't afraid, are you?

So the third box set for Ghosbusters got to me in the mail today and it includes a gooey version of Egon and Winston along with Walter Peck (he has marshmallow on his head but also comes with a normal hairpiece) and we also get Janine Melnitz.
If you take the new Gooey Egon and Winston and add the existing Ray and then take a new haripiece this set came with and put it on Peter then you can create the final gooey scene from Ghostbusters!
I also got an exclusive set from the C2E2 show which is the Stark Expo set froma deleted scene from Iron Man 2. You have Stark Expo Tony and Natalie Romanova (yeah she is a great looking minimate!)
Then I also got this months mattycollector subscription which is She-Ra Princess of Power! Mara was so excited when I opened this up she wanted me to open it out of the package right away. I had to explain that it goes with all my other ones still in their package (although I do plan on opening this some day when I have the proper space to display them in.
And here (I don't why I can't get it to appear not sideways) is the back of the card with the great little history snippet for She-Ra. I will be getting another MOTUC figure this week so be prepared for more awesomeness!

The three

So here is a picture with my three kids. Jaina Emilie Tolman (or JET) was born last Friday May 28th at 7:30 PM, she weighed 7 pounds 9 ounces and was 20 and 1/2 inches long. She is great and Mara and Xander love her to death, as do I!

Evil Turtle

So the 25th anniversary collection of TMNT figures had a second wave that was to include Shredder, Casey Jones, FootSoldier, and Slash. I got Donatello from the first wave of course but the second wave never came to stores ot online anywhere that I looked so I gave up trying to find Slash who is the one that I wanted. Yesterday I decided I should go and check Ross for any new deals (see post about the Defense of Cobra Island GI Joe set) and to my amazement not only did I find this here Slash but he was only 5$ instead of 10$! So here he is, happy to be in my collection!
