Its a vintage trap!

So they have continued to make these vintage style figures, but to keep spending down and because some of them shouldn't even be made (i.e. figures from the prequel trilogy) this is one that I just had to have. The Mon Calamari Admiral Ackbar. I love this character and I am so glad they gave him the vintage treatment.
I also picked up a Clone Wars Shaak Ti because A. she looks cool and 2. the one I already have from Episode II is posed in a permanent position so this figures poseability is much better.

Here we have the redo of King Grayskull with some minor changes vis a vis the SDCC version from two years ago. You can read his bio below. This one was an early Christmas present.

I was certainly hoping to find some new minimates at TRU this weekend as it was Black Friday but since I didn't and I really wanted to get something I got this Marvel Universe Modular Armor Iron Man figure, not just because I wanted to buy something though he is a great looking figure.

Fuzzy Wuzzy

So the cashier aisle at Target had this mini Toy Story 3 lego set of the army guy with his jeep so Isnagged it.
Here we have some galactic heroes of Barris Offee and Quinlan Vos. Ihad to get this pack since they are both Jedi and Mara loves Barris because I got her a doll of her.
Here wehave this month's MOTUC figure and it is Hordak's henchman Grizzlor, you can read his bio below. Man Ican't wait to get a good display shelf so that I can open all these up! Next month is one of my all time favorite MOTU characters so stay tuned!

I like the sound of that

So I went to the Disney store at my mall because I am keeping an eye out for an exclusive Marvel Minimate set that they will be carrying and to my surprise the store is carrying vinylmations. They had the Nightmare Before Christmas ones so I picked up this Pumpkin head Jack Skellington.
They also just put a TRU Express in the mall and they had this newest version of Soundwave in his Cybertronian form. I didn't take a pic of him in his vehicle mode because frankly I don't like it. His robot mode though I think is one of the best incarnations of Soundwave yet!
