Post Christmas goodness

My big present from my wife for Christmas was the Marvel NOW blind bag series of minimates.  THe counter display box came with the whole wave and a bunch of duplicates which I can trade or sell but the wave includes Deadpool 2099, X-23, Space Knight Venom and I took the extra to make him Flash Thompson, then you have the Chaser Silk, International Iron Man, Spider Gwen, Old Man Logan and Miles Morales Spiderman.  I don't necessarily care about all of them but most of them are a score!

My mother in law got me the other two Rogue One Legos I didn't have yet. This is the Tie Striker and
This is the amazingly cool U-wing.  I love this one and it came with some great minifigures of Cassian and Jyn among others. 

Love the beginning of the year because it means new lego sets.  I snagged these marvel micro racers!  I love the minifigures and the cool racers too.  Magneto and his magnet car, Wolverine and the X jet, Iron Man (which I adore because he is in classic colors) and his cool car and then Thanos and his Infinity Gauntlet car.

The Disney store has these great Die Cast figures and so I couldn't pass up this K2SO because he is so awesome and it was on sale.  He was one of my favorite parts of Rouge One.

Lastly I snagged the TRU wave of Dr Strange minimates with Astral Form Dr Strange, Zealot, Kaecilius, Mordo, The Ancient One, and Doctor Strange.

It's been a while, huh?

Rest assured I didn't get all this stuff in the recently I just have been a slacker at putting stuff on my blog and as I look at these pictures there are even things that I forgot to take pictures of but referring back to being a slacker I am just going to do the pictures I already took!  Here you have the TRU exclusive Ghosbuster minimates from the new movie Yates, Tolan, Gilbert and Holtzman.  I liked the movie and my daughter loved it enough to be Holtzman for Halloween.

Got more of the Loyal Subjects MOTU figures.  Luckily for me someone at TRU has popped open a few blind boxes so I could see the weapon inside (you still can't see the figure because it is in a baggie) so I was able to get two I didn't have. Here is Man-E-Faces (the one I wanted the most and the best looking of them all) and Stratos.

Someone on my minimate forum offered up this Skeletor one which was the last one I needed to complete the basic set.  I love the style of these just wish so much that they weren't blind boxed!

I snagged a Rebels two pack of figures (the first SW figures I have purchased in a while) because I wanted Sarah Michelle Gellar's character the Seventh Sister for my collection of Jedi and Sith.  The Maul was just a bonus with the purchase.

Lego Dimensions released some new sets for their games and I had to pick up the Sonic and the Gremlins packs because, well, I just really wanted them.  Good thing there was a BOGO sale cause these are ridiculously expensive!

ReAction has been putting out a lot of toys (second only to Pop Vinyls!)  and when I saw the two pack that had Ripley and the Power Loader and the Queen Alien (below)  it was another of those must haves! The figures are simple vintage SW type figure articulation but having so many diffeent properties represented by these toys makes them worth it.

TRU also release some Predator miniamtes, These are from Predator 2 you have the cloaked Predator and one whose camo is shorting out.  

I won a 10 year anniversary thing on the minimatemultiverse and I got Jay and Silent Bob zombie and the Ezekial figure (below) from the Walking Dead.  I got a bunch of other zombie parts as well.  It is cool to be part of a community like this!

So I love Smash Brothers Brawl and so when I saw this plush bendable Rayquaza at Walmart I had to have it.  My kids love it and so do I, it is a fun toy for everyone to play with!

There was a Lego sale at TRU buy one get one 40% off which is great for Legos so I snagged some more Rogue One legos. Here is the Hovertank with Chirrut Imwe (one of the best characters in the movie) and a Hovertank pilot.

With that purchase I got this AT-ST that comes with Baz, a Pilot and a Rebel Trooper.  This one is bigger and better looking than my old AT-ST so this will replace it.

Then at Walmart they had this set on clearance for 40% off and it was the one Batman V Superman set I wanted it was just too much at full price.  So I was super happy to get a discount.  It has Lex, Lois, Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman along with a Lexcorp helicopter and the Batjet.

On a different sale day I also got Krennic's Shuttle with some great minifigures including Krennic, K2SO, Deathtroopers, Bodhi and Pao.  I will be getting the other Rogue One sets for Christmas so stay tuned.

After getting some Christmas money from my parents I went and got this Bat Gremlin from Gremlins 2 that I have been eyeing for a long time.  I love those movie and this is a great looking figure to go with the others I have.  Now if only I had a bunch of extra money to get the Spike Spider one!

Doesn't seem to be a good toy post without some minimates.  I got some big orders recently from so I snagged a Sophia and a Rosita loose on a sale price.

This is wave 3 of Aliens minimates this wave is based on Alien.  It has Ripley in her space suit as well as Dallas and Lambert in their space suites.  Then you have Ash normal and Ash with his head ripped off.  And of course what collection would be complete with out Ripley in her underwear! Then there is a space frozen Alien to boot!

Here we have the first Netflix Daredevil set with Claire, Matt, Kingpin, and Foggy.  I will be getting another set that has actual Daredvil in it (This one did too I just chose to display him as Matt instead)

Here is the Jessica Jones set with Luke cage, Patsy, the Purple Man and Jessica.  Can't wait for the Iron Fist and Defenders shows cause that only means more minimates!

Then we have some awesome comic book minimates. We finally have an Enchantress, Tigra, Mandroid, Black Knight, Shield Agent, Sunfire, and Blizzard.  I love getting these classic comic minimates.  I like the movie ones because I love the movies a lot but I would give ever having movie minimates again if they would do as many comic minimates as they do movie ones!

Great movie and excited to get some of the Dr. Strange minimates. Here is Steven Strange, Dr Christine Palmer, a Zealot, and Wong.

Then we have the second wave of Civil War minimates with a Mercenary, Crossbones, War Torn Iron Man, Agent 13, Secretary Ross, and Black Widow.  The wave also came with a cap but his leg broke right out of the package!

Lastly I got this Aliens APC tank from TRU,  I love those movies so much so pretty much anything from that in minimate form is going to make it into my collection.
