I got an older release Gold Leader Dutch Vander to pilot my recently acquired vintage-style packaging Y-Wing Fighter, my second favorite Rebel vehicle next to the Snowspeeder. That way I can re-create one of the funniest scenes in A New Hope.
"Stay on target."
"They're coming in too fast!"
"Stay on target."
Getting him in there and closing the hatch was quite a feat. The cockpit is pretty tight and the controls get in the way but I managed to squeeze him in there. Plus I got an R2 unit I cobbled together from a few of the Build-A-Droid parts I had for a while.
When will they make Porkins with the screaming exploding action feature?
Batman Legacy Batgirl, Aquaman/Mer-Man 2-pack, and some G.I. Joes.
Just got the newest wave of Joes the other day, which for me is pretty much it for that collection, since it fills in the last few holes on my want list (given that Sci-Fi's my favorite Joe, it's a nice way to end.) So I'm pretty much covered on that, unless on the likely chance I can get Sgt. Slaughter, Zarana or Dial-Tone without having to pay crazy prices.
I just ordered the DCUC Batman Legacy Catwoman from Amazon.
And I'm working on my last few customs for JLU, since that line is pretty much defunct now (Mattel has said they may release the last few figures shown last year, but the price will be through the roof). So I have 14 figures I'm finishing up, so I can call that collection done as well.
I just got the 1:6 Sideshow Toys Dewback statue to be used in conjuction with their 12" Sandtrooper. This thing is friggin' huge! I don't know where the heck I'm going to find the space to display it...
I just got a near mint complete V.E.N.O.M. Buzzard with box and instructions...
And a fairly recent Silver Age comic collection acquisition has re-ignited my desire for collecting silver, bronze and copper age Marvel comics so I started buying some comics. The first to arrive are Amazing Spider-Man #147, #148 and #149...
My late Christmas present (cuz the release date got pushed back) from my wife arrived last night... Doctor Who Classics: Enemies of the Third Doctor set!!! It includes an AWESOME "Spearhead" Auton figure, complete with swappable gun-hand and Nestene sphere, all perfectly sculpted to match their appearance in one of my favorite stories! :D The second figure used to be my most wanted, Omega the Timelord Baddie, from "The Three Doctors" anniversary special, but now that I've got him (and he kicks all kinds of ass, they even sculpted his suit underneath his robes - something we never saw on-screen!), my new Most Wanted figure is an Ice Lord (c'mon CO/UT!). The third figure in the set doubles as a hand-puppet, a Drashig creature from another rad episode, "Carnival of Monsters"! It's kinda like a big ol' dino-snake... with six eyes!! Ha ha. While its great and fun and cool-lookin (and my 3 year-old loves it), the one-off sculpt isn't as accurate as it shoulda been. But like I said, it's fun and cool, so whaddya gonna do?
All in all, another fantastic WHO toy from Character Options & Underground Toys. :D I love my wife!!
P.S. Tanya, I'd been dismissing those Disney Cuties... until I saw your Pinnochio!! :) I love that little Dude. Have you heard they're going to be introducing Muppets pretty soon? That'll be my REAL test, ha ha. Great collection! Jealous of your blu-ray/DVD collectors' sets too, right on! Do you happen to collect Disney Pins as well? I saw your recent Disneyland pics in another thread, very cool!
Wave 3 and 4 2011 G I Joe arrived right before Christmas.
I picked up a few extra vipers around at stores (looking for more and zombies).
My Noks and Marauders 7 packs arrived from BBTS Wednesdays.
I got the 6" Aqualad from Young Justice and Wave 20 of DCUC, but the only ones I think I want are Hawk & Dove and Reverse Flash.
Seems like bi-weekly there is a box from the Disney Store shipped to my mail box, LOL.
This time I was able to add three more Pop vinyl figures to my collection; Belle (Beauty & The Beast), and from the new series 3 - Donald Duck and Cheshire Cat! Very excited. Plan to do video reviews of them soon.
Yeah! I love Muppets. Yes, I love Disney blu-ray/dvd and when the oppertunity arises I buy the "deluxe" or "collector's" edition. The Disney Movie Club usually has them for the new releases, though they really have not been that impressive as of late.

While searching for MU Psylocke and Storm this morning, I found the new ThunderCats figures at Wal-Mart in Audubon!
Although Claudus was already wiped out, I got the remaining new figures:
Lion-O with Armored Arm x1
Panthro with Cyborg Arms x1
Mumm-Ra with small wings x1
The Tygra figure with the more show accurate eyes was also on the shelf. Plenty of those left. I'll grab one on a rainy day.
I saw the Storm Charger at Wal-Mart in Berlin. One left.
The new Panthro has painted nunchuks.
Im looking for Spider Man 222 9.8 CGC I believe it was the first appearance of speed demon.

Good luck with your endeavour, C-Smooth! Personally, I'm not as picky as to buy CGC-rated comics (Fine Condition and above is good enough for me) as I always like to go back and read the stories and hold them in my hands. They are after all comic books to me. I also got a few Uncanny X-Men in the mail this weekend, specifically #181 and #182. I'm going to need to buy more long comic boxes with all the impulse buying I've been doing on Ebay.

May I present....MONSTEROUS!!!!!!! It is a Gobots Combiner and I got it for FREE! A coworker that didn't want her stuff anymore gave it to me along with a crap ton of silverhawk stuff I will post later.
Judas- jealous of all the M.A.S.K scores

However, with my ongoing comic book feeding frenzy, it doesn't look like I'll have too much disposable income for those vehicles any time soon. Speaking of which, I got some more comics in the mail: X-Men #153, #154, Amazing Spider-Man #237, #257 and New Mutants #1-40 plus Annual #1 as well as the New Mutants Special for only $10 (plus $13 shipping)!

Marvel Universe Absorbing Man (think its a variant, he's totally black)
And thanks to all of Benny's comic purchases I decided to go for back issues of Spider-Man books picked up Amazing Spider-Man #'s 293,301,and 328.
Man, I get blamed for everything! But seriously, nice haul! I liked the whole Kraven's Last Hunt storyline and loved the McFarlane Spidey years.

Those lego mini figures are awesome!
The latest non motu score was an R5-D4 on the new vintage card, this figure has eluded me since its release and I wasn't willing to pay over retail for it.
