Enjoying the small things in life!

All right so this post is dedicated to all the small collectibles that I so adore. This first thing was given to me by my best friend Kenny. This is the World's Smallest TF OPtimus Prime with his trailer. I have a world's smallest Soundwave and Thrust as well and so adding this one to my collection is great. I really love the little pod on the arm in the trailer. There are no references here to tell size but this Optimus only measures 2 inches tall!
Now here we have the first wave of TRU exclusive minimates with vehicles. This here is the Delorean with Marty (there will be a PX version that has a frosted Delorean and Marty in his radioactive suit which I will also be getting) This is a great looking addition to the BTTF minimates I LOVE IT. We just watched the first movie with the kids and they loved it too and were excited to get to play with this when I opened it today.
Here is just a pic with Marty inside.
Then Diamond Select is also doing a line of their own characters called MAX (Mobile Attack Xtreme) and this is the first one which is really cool (but I am not convinced I will be getting all of these). You have the pilot and his jet which can be combined and customized with other jets if you buy them or you can. . . .
Change it to a jet pack! There is a red version of this same thing for the PX wave but I am most likely not getting that.
Then we have something I have wanted since I first saw the preview pic last year. I haven't collected SW Kubricks because they are just too expensive to get them all although there are quite a few I would like this is the first one I just had to have and that is simply because this C3PO came with a Salacious Crumb to sit on his shoulder! I love this very nearly as much as I love the last thing in this post. . . . . .
So last year at SDCC DST previewed a minimate playset that was to come with a generic soldier and a Battle Beast minimate because DST acquired the license for Battle Beasts. Well that playset never ended up coming out but at Toyfare then at C2E2 and then at SDCC DST handed out different versions of the Gator BB minimate to people at these shows, none of which I attended of course. And all of these have been a hot item on eBay going for way more money than I wanted to spend even though I wanted this minimate more than almost any other minimate to date (and out of almost 900 that is saying something). So last week I bid on an eBay auction for this SDCC Golden Gator in no way expecting to win but I did and to make it even sweeter it was only 10$ with free shipping!!!!!! So he finally arrived in the mail today and I could not be more happy with him. This is in my top five favorite minimate of all time. I love this and beg and plead for DST to make more BB minimate and then sell them to the public not just give them away at shows that I can't go to!!!!
