Yeah. I heard today that the US banned kinder coz of toys. Rather - unnatentive parents allowing a kid to swallow a small part. Of course, the packaging clearly states that there are small parts and the whole point is to offer small toys made of small parts. Your laws are crazy. Like the dumb ass legal system that allowed a woman who spilled coffee on herself to claim damages coz the cup did not tell her that her hot cup of coffee was in fact, hot!!!! Stupidity of the highest order .

Anyway, these lil guys are pretty neat. I'll find somewhere for them!!

Don't worry about it, man. I appreciate the offer but I'm not in a financial position to return the favor unfortunately, at least not right now. & I'm only interested in the Kraang android anyway, 'cause I'm building a small collection of their mini-figures.

Yeah that whole coffee fiasco was outrageous. When thinking about certain laws I suppose some may call it a nanny state.

I'd like to think the chocolate was tasty and the company didn't cheap out on the chocolate part because of the toy. Did you eat it?

I heard Cracker Jack doesn't even put toys inside anymore but only a QR code.

It's only stupidity of the highest order when you only know the headline and never bother to learn any of the facts surrounding the case. This video does a pretty good job of explaining what actually happened in that case. You might want to watch it before referencing the case again.

That looks really interesting but nothing I would buy because of the price and the size of the display. But I was able to last year purchase just the TMNT sleeping bag in that display at a yard sale for $4! I thought it was a good deal.

Heck yeah that sounds like a good deal to me. Just to clarify though it's the full size one right not the sample size?

There is a toy outlet in my city. They have a few figures from the 90's (Wrestling, Captain Planet, ...) so I go there now and then and hope to find some Turtles stuff. Once I found a Knucklehead.

Last time I took a closer look at the children's clothing and found some Turtles sweatpants and pullovers from the early 90's. Luckily I have a son in the right age, so I could buy a few pieces.

Will take a few pictures and post them here.

Has anyone bought the super cheap paper and/or fabric posters from China in here?

I've liked a few but wanted to know how the quality was, chances of it showing up, ect...

Thanks.

Not sure if these are new or not, but it's the first time I've seen them. A pair of Mirage pint glasses:



I especially dig the colour-to-black and white detail on the Leo one. Not sure if that version of the image is new to this or not. Cool either way.

My standing rule is to limit my TMNT merch purchases to Mirage-based stuff, which until now I thought would save me money.
