Bought Walking Dead Glen figure at Walgreens. Didn't see the other new Walking Dead figs though, I doubt they will be hard to find in the coming weeks. I always find tons once stores get them. I really like the figure, nice alternate head, great accessories and the likeness is really good. McFarlane sculpts these days are great. I do wish they'd do better paint apps, especially on the faces but it's passable.

Also if CCGs count as toys (I'll pretend they do!), bought some My Little Pony CCG decks + booster box! Really liking this game. They just announced the first expansion Canterlot Nights too. I hope more people will try it out. Great fun if you like the show.

My collection consists of a few Classics and several 20xx figures. I don't collect the retro stuff I had in my youth.

I'm only trying to get all the normal figures and vehicles, don't want any repaints and the other variations only if they are reasonably priced. Still missing the Dragon Walker and I'm not too optimistic about getting that any time soon...

I saw that some Targets had that Predaking on clearance for $25 (I see you found one for that)! Funny thing is it's still full price at some and still full price on their website. Cool fig! I'm tempted to pick that one up, especially at that clearance price! Lol.

i hesitated, because I'd rather buy retro video games (my current trend), but this Predaking is MUCH better than the older one I have. I like the lack of gray, the hip-guards, and the over-all appearance in Robot mode. Before I opened him, I watched 2 Youtube reviews, and their only gripes were not things i care about: the head of the dragon looking up in dragon mode, and the too-simple transformation. Both do not bother me, because I KEEP him in robot mode.
Another bonus, his wings in robot mode look good. The Voyager sized had a weird look for his wings in robot mode. The CB figures are fodder for now. I didn't even bother to open them. I was into these at first, but the SAMENESS factor has made having more than 3 to be kinda boring, like the original 12" GI Joes, i guess.

went to the same target where I found all 6 Spidey legends

they restocked. But this time I got there a little late and only found:

1x electro
4x spidey
4x superior spidey

surprised that I found SO MANY spidey son the shelf... this means my particular store clearly got a lot of cases in. and they are selling tons of the chase figures, that's for sure.

i'm sure those spideys will sell pretty soon, but superior spidey looks like a surefire pegwarmer

Here's my toy purchases for the last couple weeks:
Picked up the Rookie Ghostbuster (video game) figure for $15 at a toy show.
[IMG][/IMG]

Jab from Street Sharks (metallic version)- $1, Wolfman monster from the Real Ghostbusters- $2 and picked up another Metalhead and Leatherhead (Metalhead was $1, Leatherhead I got in a trade- he had a nicer paint job than mine so I just switched them out). I'm one of those people that has to "rescue" every TMNT figure I find at a flea market, lol.

FYI if you want the Monsterarts Alien, amazon has it discounted. 16% off

http://www.amazon.com/Bandai-Tamashi...dp/B00FGMSM9S/

And here is the Monsterarts Predator (no discount, but it's goddamn awesome)
http://www.amazon.com/Bandai-Tamashi...dp/B00FGMT8DC/

I'm pretty confident that these are the best looking (and best articulated) Alien and Predator figures ever made. Can't wait to get mine.

Yep, Spectacular Spidey is a definite peg warmer thus far...

I'm glad to see stores will be getting several cases of these in, as I'd like another Carnage and refuse to pay the $40 asking price for it. My local Walmart has 8 cases arriving on Friday. I called and spoke with a manager and he was nice enough to look it up.

I picked up another Carnage Unleashed figure from eBay, to open. (I won't open the one I have currently as it's mint, so I bought one with a damaged card.) This was always my favorite Carnage figure because of the tendril/weapon accessories. Obviously the new one trumps it but you gotta' love the removable mask, etc. Pure awesome.

Picked up 5 of the blindbox Scribblenauts Unlimited figures.

Pulls:
(2) Green Lantern Maxwell chase figures
Bizarro
Superman
BlackManta

Was hoping for Deadman and Aquaman, but I'm generally happy with my pulls. Wasn't stoked about Maxwell, but if anyone gets into these and wants to trade, get ahold of me.

I've been busy playing with my newest toy, here compared to the Neo Geo X I already had.
No, it's not a PSP, it's a JXD A1000
This is where I got it from
