Myriad of awesomeness

This month on MOTU Classics we have Kobra Khan evil master of snakes. Great toy (even though I wish he had the squirt feature) Only two more months until Stinkor! Read Kobra's bio below.
I recently sold a significant amount of toys (so some things on this blog are not even mine anymore) so what do I do with money from sold toys? Buy more toys of course! I placed an order with and got this great condition vintage Chrome Dome figure that I had as a kid. I remember going to get this at Best. This character is from the original TMNT. The episode that had this character was actually a evening movie type episode, it was awesome! (Or that's how I remember it)
I also got this time phasing flying Delorean with the first minimate of Marty's girlfriend Jennifer.
Then because it was cheap I also got this Gundam model that was lots of fun to put together. This if rom Gundam wing and it is called Deathscythe.
Then last of all I picked up this GI Joe Techno Viper because I love the viper figures.

Blazing awesome

New minimates YEAH! So they made a new wave called the best of which has new versions of a bunch of characters that we already have a ton of so I didn't really care about this wave but I had to have this new version of Iron Man! I love this color version. I don't really care about the Thing that came with him even though I like the bulked up version of him.
The newest wave 43 is based on an older comic story line here you have a really cool looking Daredevil with a great new weapon. Then you also have Sin Eater acharacter that I am unfamiliar with.
Here you have a detective who tried to help Spiderman, Jean de Wolff and then a Spider Man.
The army builder for the wave is a Shield Agent who has two hairpieces so you can actually have two different agents which is really cool. Then you have J. Jonah Jameson who looks incredible. The variant for the set is the loser for the set Aunt May who looks very mannish.
Here we have an action figure like version of Voltron! This is called Blazing Sword Voltron as he comes with the sword that looks like when Voltron takes his sword out. This is a non-transformable but very poseable version of Voltron. He also came with a base that plays the theme song. Very very cool.

Different can still be good

Some Star Wars lego sets I have purchased just so that I could get the Jedi minifigures that came with it. Well Ki Adi Mundi came with a Geonosian starfighter that I absolutely didn't want so I just purchased him by himself from ebay to add to my Jedi minifigure collection.
There is a new TF cartoon on (there have been a ton over the last decade) called Transformers Prime and they have just started to release toys for this series. The first wave thankfully includes my favorite of them all Soundwave. You can see the robot form doesn't really look like a traditional Soundwave but he is still cool. He even comes with a wierd little Laserbeak.
I think the vehicle form is really cool though as it is a military spy drone which goes along perfectly with what Soundwave does.
