You speak my language

Today is Father's day so I will finish the post with the gift my wife got me but lets start with some other things I have acquired recently.  Here is the Walgreens animated minimates series 2.  You have Iron Spiderman, Dark Avengers Black Widow and Iron Man and a Drax and Gamorra to go with the Groot and Star Lord I got a while back.

Next we have some legos. This set is from the new Farlanders lego series. I haven't seen the show but like the ship, wanted the new Dengar figure and had to get the new character Naare because she has a lightsaber (I don't know what she is though)

Then I got a sweet deal 30% off so I snagged this Resistance fighter x-wing because I love X-wings even though this is exactly the same as Poe's stealth X-wing just with different colors.  This one came with a Poe, Lor San Tekka and a Flametrooper.

Had to pick up this two pack at TRU because Rawlf if my favorite character so I had to pick it up.

Disney Infinity isn't going to be making new ones so they are cheaper now and there was a sale so I picked up this Vader figure just because it looks cool.

Then I picked up this two pack at TRU as well of some Predators from Pedator 2. You have the Berserker and the Shaman.  If I was made of money I would be a completist with these but for now I pick and choose the ones I like the best.

When I was a kid I had this toy called Spinjas You can see in the picture below that you put the little guys in the spinners and wind them up and then spin them in the arena and they fight.  I have wanted to add this representation of my childhood to my collection for a really long time and finally found a good deal on ebay.  So here it is.

Last but not least my wife speaks my language here and got me this classic filmation style Skeletor figure from the MOTUC line.  This is definitely one of my all time favorite MOTU figures ever. I love the colors and the style he looks flat out amazing.

Turtle power

So we went to St. George over Memorial Day weekend and I found this Gotham minimates 2 pack at Barnes and Noble.  Detective Gordon and Bruce Wayne. I like the show but haven't bought any of the 4 packs because I don't want to pay shipping, so when I found this at regular price at the store no shipping I snagged it up.

I went to a Walmart down there and found this classics 6 inch Donatello based on the movie character.  I love the extra replaceable heads and was excited to snag this figure with the new movie coming up (which I saw last Friday night, it was ok but not as good as I hoped, I liked the first one better)

I also snagged this bear model that is from Gundam because I thought the girls would think it was cool.  I got this at the Barnes and Noble also.

Today at Walmart here at home I found wave two of the Megabloks Turtles so even though I don't like blind bags I found the Slash, the cool cowled Leo and the mutagen version of Donatello (I of course had to get the Donatello figure)  I don't necessarily care about Megbloks but these little minifigures are cool, I hope they expand the line to cover other properties.
