My building's manager gave me a ring... instant smile, some of my packages arrived sooner than expected.

Quite happy to have these. :D

Zulithe 08-02-2013 05:47 PM

very nice man! wow you're really into those transformers :P I've only bought a few in recent years... I love the Voyager class ones.

Digital Ghost 08-02-2013 05:54 PM

Yeah, it's been a growing addiction akin to collecting TMNT.

I'm just more picky when it comes to Transformers. I don't mind skipping on a few here and there if they don't interest me.

Thank-you TARGET for this!

It's HUGE! It's bigger than the box...must be a TARDIS box:

Also Available, just not in my store:

I do have the Swamp-Viper fangboat, but were the other two ever sold in stores? I like the GHOST HAWK II VTOL, but I have never seen it. I probably seen the 4x4 before, but it's the least impressive of the lot, imo.

I had these on pre-order and didn't realize they'd be shipping so soon (target release was said to be August and the June ones shipped late June I think). They showed up yesterday but I spent overnight in the hospital, so I had no chance to upload the photos.

Just a shot of 'em beatin' the tar out of enemies.

Digital Ghost 08-03-2013 05:11 PM

Very cool, Superman looks especially awesome at that scale.

Sorry for the hospital stay, hope you're alright!

Has anyone seen the Masters of the Universe Classics figures that have been showing up at Big Lots?

Mine was ransacked, only had the Faceless One.

I was looking for Chief Carnivus or Buzz Off. No luck.

yeah i've been seeing reports of this on 4chan for a good couple weeks now. Most people have caught on, probably gonna be hard to hit the jackpot on them now. Great price though.

I remember when the Thundercats figs were appearing in large numbers at discount stores. I got lucky enough to grab some of those.

By the way... big bad toy store raised the price on that Swamp Thing to 19.99. Mine is still listed as 15.99 on my pre-order though... sweet. Hope they honor the lower price.

Brodie 08-04-2013 09:25 PM

I think they do, or atleast hope they do. I'm still waiting for it to ship.

GI Joe The Rise of Cobra-Cobra Gunship.
http://fbcdn-sphotos-a-a.akamaihd.ne...53321026_n.jpg
I found this at Goodwill.
http://sphotos-a-atl.xx.fbcdn.net/hp...50559444_n.jpg
It was made in 2008 by Hasbro...looks like a Terminator thing...
http://fbcdn-sphotos-c-a.akamaihd.ne...83233684_n.jpg
I couldn't find it's propellers, assuming it was a helicopter,
http://fbcdn-sphotos-d-a.akamaihd.ne...16485160_n.jpg
but came to discover it's NOT a helicopter thanks to HISS TANK's database: http://www.hisstank.com/database/gi-...-gunship-2339/

Aug 7th:Imaginext is doing BLIND BAGS!!!!
http://sphotos-a-atl.xx.fbcdn.net/hp...60768145_n.jpg
And today I bought 5, but I can only open 1 toy per day max, and I felt and felt, EVERY bag hoping I'd get this one...and I DID !!! I GOT ANUBIS!!!
http://sphotos-b-atl.xx.fbcdn.net/hp...32434091_n.jpg
He was the one figure I had to have, and he's mine!!
I was stoked to find that the BIG vehicles for CORPS were on clearance for $11 yesterday at Wal-Mart! I opened this one today:
http://fbcdn-sphotos-a-a.akamaihd.ne...23068687_n.jpg
They also had it in BLUE, but I didn't buy the blue one, and my phone was charging while I was in this Wal-Mart, so I didn't get any in store pics to quick share, but I did get 3 vehicles, including the helicopter on the back of the package, but I can't open it today:
http://sphotos-b-atl.xx.fbcdn.net/hp...80039178_n.jpg
Maybe the blades of this will work on the GUNSHIP I got from Goodwills?
I like the extra peg-holes:
http://fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.akamaihd.ne...06034648_n.jpg
Sgt. Slaughter?
http://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.ne...82337373_n.jpg
The peg-holes make display more fun, despite the open holes that bother me...Tanks are supposed to be AIR TIGHT.
http://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.ne...46639562_n.jpg
See what I mean, you can put figures in the holes...but that's not a very smart way to ride into war.
http://fbcdn-sphotos-c-a.akamaihd.ne...09135731_n.jpg
I like it from this angle:

Pre-ordered the next walking dead wave of McFarlane figs on amazon! seems like online is the only reliable place I can find these. Sometimes I see them at gamestop but it's usually the zombies not the humans.

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51BvwyynsdL.jpg

So awesome that they are making a Carl figure. He was great in season 3.

The articulation and locked-in poses has been terrible on some of these (particularly Rick and Daryl), but these are looking better

Falconhood 08-09-2013 07:19 PM

I got a new recruit to help GI Joe:
http://sphotos-b-atl.xx.fbcdn.net/hp...49532543_n.jpg
and he is well articulated...and Pentecostal?

I added another vehicle to my GI Joe arsenal today!
The Corps-Rapid Assault-Attack Fighter
http://sphotos-b-atl.xx.fbcdn.net/hp...49115702_n.jpg
Unlike GI Joe, these vehicles come with ARTICULATED figures
http://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.ne...61882561_n.jpg
I like this little jet
http://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.ne...39416122_n.jpg
Got to get them all!

I finally scored a MOTUC Chief Carnivus for a reasonable price on eBay, mostly due to the Big Lots fiasco. It was $10, but it was under 20.

I rummaged through Target today and their toy aisle is totally revamped. Aparently Max Steel is a thing again?

Big Lots fiasco?

Brodie 08-11-2013 05:47 PM

Mattel dumped a huge stock of MOTUC and Ghostbusters figures from their site at various Big Lots locations for $10, and 12 inch Ghostbusters 2 packs for $30 (as opposed to 130). But hoarders hit every location and got most everything in one go.

Digital Ghost 08-11-2013 08:17 PM

Heard about that on a Transformers forum... Sweet deal for that 2 pack, if you can find it.
