Been some time since I've contributed to the thread...
I've picked up a few things since then so I'm definitely missing a few items but here's most of it.

There's a story with a great ending for the 'Prime' figures! I purchased them around Christmas time, when Toys R Us Canada was having a huge sale. $8.95 for the deluxes and $10.00 off on the 2-pack and Voyager. Well, they ship Purolator and didn't inform me that the items were dropped off at the depot and wouldn't be physically delivered to me. I didn't even receive a call.

As such, they were shipped pack and all of them refunded. I was livid! I'd never had this problem before. The Unicron and Rodimus figures had made their way to my door with no problem, with my previous order. Anyway, to make a long story short, I called their customer service line and raised all hell but they actually made things right... as long as the items were in stock within the next 30 days of my call, I would receive free shipping and matched prices to what I had originally paid... added to that, 50% off the larger items. Thank God they were... Cliffjumper was in stock as of the 30th day, so I got it at the last minute.

As you can imagine, I saved a ******** of $. I think I paid 9 bucks after tax for the Voyager Prime. I would never want to have paid the non-sale price for them... it's not that I don't think their worth it but once you see them on sale like they were in December with 50% off, it's hard to imagine paying more than that ever again. I think they're $16.99 now and the Voyager, $29.99. No thanks! I love the figures but have yet to open them... I must say, I do love the packaging which is probably why I've yet to do so.

The DC Universe 'Black Lantern' Hal Jordan and the Movie Masters version, I found at Winners for $5.00 each.


Here are several Spawn figures I purchased on eBay from a fellow Canadian:

Lastly, I purchased the UK Collector's Edition of Deus Ex and it came with an Adam Jensen figure and accessories:

Need to get series 2, but I feel like I should already start saving to go broke with Playmates.

Digital Ghost 02-17-2012 08:07 PM

No! As much as we're all anticipating the new TMNT, you must get series 2!
They're great! :tgrin:

The 3.75" Green Lantern figures are $1.50 clearanced at Wal-Mart, so now i have 6 more. For $6 they were bogus, but $1.50 is almost what they are worth...with a hamburger and fries and coca-cola.

UsagiYojimbo 02-22-2012 11:47 PM

Some better pics of the Hot Toys 1989 Batman figure...

I've never even seen them as low as $6. 'Round these parts they're on clearance for like... $7.50 right now.

Candy Kappa 02-23-2012 02:25 PM

Got me the new Lego Hero Factory 4.0 series. Got Breez, Toxic Reapa, Split Face and Black Phantom.



Also my MOTUC Demo-Man and battleground Evil-Lyn arrived in the mail, and today i got a note that my local post office have a package for me, which will most likely contain the MOTUC Star Sisters

:lol: Old school! Love the Gamecube. "Wind Waker" is still one of the best games, ever.

tmnt transformer 02-26-2012 08:46 PM

Wind Waker is the main reason I wanted it....Twilight Princess as well.

UsagiYojimbo 02-26-2012 08:50 PM

Yup... Wind Waker is ace.

Check out Skies of Arcadia and Tales of Symphonia as well. :)
