Here's some more random loose stuff I bought, or was given, this past week:

Transformers Beast Wars Depthcharge. Missing his accessories, but otherwise intact. Arguably one of the worst examples of kibble ever--getting him to stand is no easy feat with all that crap on his back. Pretty cool figure overall though.



Two Starscreams, Transformers Armada and a Burger King movie version (with battle damage chest action, a la MOTU). The Energon one is missing numerous parts, most noticeably the wings, but the electronic sounds still work. Oddly enough, even without all the parts, the jet mode still looks decent.



Burger King Fantastic Four figures, Doctor Doom, Silver Surfer, Mr. Fantastic, and the Human Torch. One of my nieces gave me the Thing months ago too, but I can't remember where I put it. The Silver Surfer is almost impossible to get to stand with that crazy pose. I love this version of Victor Von Doom--the huge fists just suit him somehow, and I like that they went the extra mile and vac-metallized his face.



And, continuing with the FF4 theme, a large, kiddy-style Thing figure. He's goofy looking, but I adore him.



Some random, camouflaged, African American 12" G.I.JOE. I don't know if the pants belong to him or not, but he came with them. If anybody knows more about him, please share (I think he's just a generic one, rather than a specific RAH character, but I may be wrong).



No idea (Robotech maybe?). He's some kind of Power Ranger-esque Police dude. The copyright date is 1988 Toho/Takara. If anybody knows who, or what, this is, please let me know. It's got a mighty impressive amount of articulation for a late 80s figure, and has some peg holes for attaching pieces of armor/accessories.



Pocahontas' plush raccoon from the Disney movie of the same name (I think the animal's name is Miko, but I don't remember). His hands are velcro and stick together, and, if you squeeze his belly, there's a mechasim inside that emits a raccoon-like chittering sound. I wasn't all that fond of the movie (not that I got to be objective about it when I watched it, as I was in a Native American studies class in college at the time, and the only reason the professor had us watching it was so that we could identify and pick apart the negative stereotypes), but I do like raccoons.

How did you manage that? I can't find them anywhere but online for an arm and a leg.

I was lucky, I had nothing to do on halloween night and went to walmart.
I bought out the stores supply lol well for friends of mine anyway.
Not like I'm a scalper or anything so they're going to other collectors for the stores price.
But if I see them again I'll give you a text.
They only have power girl left.

He is the only one they didn't have, so he's on my look out list for sure.

I bought the newest historical American Girl doll: Rebecca Rubin. This was back in September, though.

I'm a big "Justice league Unlimited" fan. I was able to find the 2 latest 6packs at Target a few days before Christmas.This is the "Attack from Thanagar" set.



And this is the "Eclipsed" set.

I'm now collecting a new series of mini Madballs that just came out here in Spain. There are 10 of them, but they come in closed packets, so you don't know wich one you're getting. I've got 8 so far.

Wait, what? New Madballs? I REQUIRE PICTURES! Do you mean these?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=300353557146

Weird...

And that's pretty cool, Jer -- I've never seen the Thanagar set! I'd actually be tempted to buy that, but then I'm a sucker for Shayera...

I bought Juku Couture Hayley today.

My most recent action figure purchase is 'The Dark Knight' Movie Masters Harvey Dent. He is 6" tall, fully articulated, and will fit in nicely with my other Dark Knight action figures. I hope he arrives in the mail soon. I think this may be the first figure made of Harvey Dent, before he became Two-Face.

I bought him from:

Randomly found this at a local used bookstore. I'm trying to cut way back on toy purchases, but found I just couldn't say no to this for 4 bucks.

Spawn Series 12 "The Heap" (199. This is loose/second-hand. Some of the junk that's supposed to be on his body is missing/broken off (a shovel handle, vertebrae column, pipes, several pieces of broken glass, etc). I'm contemplating sculpting/fabricating replacements to fix him up properly. Seeing as how he's a creature composed of garbage anyway, it's not as big a deal as it would be for other figures that he's missing a few details here and there. I always wanted this guy, but never got one till now--one of McFarlane Toy's better monster figures in my opinion.


Toy Biz Spider-Man Stunt System "Slide 'N Trap Post Office" (2005). Still haven't decided yet if I'm going to leave it hanging MOC on the walls with all of my other unopened toys or not. This isn't the type of toy I usually purchase, Marvel Comics characters or otherwise, but I got it for free. I might be able to use the little, unarticulated Kraven The Hunter for something or another . . .
