Your skull is showing.

So went to TRU because I had a toy dream last night and when that happens I usually find something I want or something awesome. Well here was the something awesome!  So I found the first figures on the new card back and lucily they had one left of this great ROTJ Vader with the Emperor's force lightning around him and his helmet is somewhat transluscent so you can see his skull! so fracking awesome!  His hand is also removeable since ya know it gets hacked by Luke.

 I also found something that I wanted.  So one of the first series of minimates I collected was the Street Fighter Darkstalkers and they had a second wave announced that was never produced so when they announced the Street Fighter Vs. Tekken wave I was super pumped.  Of course I don't care for the Tekken guys that came with these two but I am so excited to have Guile and Zangief now to flesh out my SF collection as SSF 2 was one of my favorite games to play on the SNES.  Specialty shops wave 1 comes out soon so there will be more characters to add to the collection!

The better to see you with my dear!

So when I was a kid I had a bunch of MOTU figures but 99% of them were hand me downs from my brothers.  There was one figure that I can clearly remember opening because it was MINE and that was Mekaneck so you can imagine how excited I was to get this MOTUC figure in the mail today. He doesn't have the extendo neck feature that the old figure had but it did come with two neck pieces that you can attach to make his neck longer.  Read the bio below!

Optic Blasts and jet packs!

They are now making individul blind bagged Kre-o Transformer guys so I grabbed bags and felt until I found this Sunstorm!  I really hope they make a Blaster to go along with my Soundwave and then the rest of the seekers too!

Got a minimate package in the mail and this one is actually a SDCC exclusive that I ordered with other stuff so I had to wait for the other stuff to be released before this got shipped to me.  This is from the Avengers Vs. X-men series. You have Hope Summers who has a very cool new jet pack accessory, then a new Cyclops with an optic blast accessory finally (although I put it on my astonighing X-men Cyclops cause I am not keeping this version)  Then you have the best version of Emma Frost yet, and then Colossus in his Juggernaut outfit!  A very cool set.

Then you have two sets from the Fear Itself series. This is the Mighty set which includes a comic version of Odin (finally!), Hawkeye, Spiderman, and Iron Man. Odin let IM use the forge in Asgard to make weapons from Asgardian stuff so that they would have better stuff to fight the bad guys from the other box set. 

Here you have Cul the Serpent, who is Odin's brother who is released by Sin (the daughter of Red Skull also known as Skadi) then you have Grey Gargoyle and Thing as Angrir.  They all get Thor like hammers to terrorize with hence IM needed upgrades to fight them.  This is a cool set but I am not going to keep the Thing/Angrir.  I add the ones I am not keeping to a pile and when it is big enough I sell it as a lot and it helps me fund future purchases!
