    Well, good deal there so. I did not like ROC figures, mainly because there were thousands of those here in Argentina at retail, extremely expensive and just wave 1 & 2, which didn't sell well, making impossible to have POC or 30th be sold around here. I did not even know that there was a Kamakura figure, otherwise I may have looked for it.

    Someone bought me an Empire Strikes Back Tauntaun. It says Target exclusive on the box.

    I don't actually collect Star Wars (other the old ceramic character mugs from Sigma), so I might put this up for trade.

    Oh, ok. Those must be the ones I always see at Big Lots. Yeah, they never move. I've been seeing those for many years now.

    Damn, man I used to have ROM back in the day. Breaks my heart to think about all the great toys I had when I was a kid.

    Well, I bought it... so yeah, I saw the price tag I wasn't surprised to find a ROC figure on the pegs, I was surprised to find that ROC figure on the pegs. Almost all of the CVS/Wallgreens/etc around me still have at least one ROC wave 1 or wave 2 figure. But the rare later ROC figures are long gone. That's why I was so surprised to find it.

    Oh, man, I loved those Rom comics. I really should take the time to track down the whole series. Shame about what happened to the writer, Bill Mantlo.

    Anyway, my latest score would be a Sideshow 1/6 exclusive Plo Koon for under $55 shipped. My first sideshow figure and from what i can tell, it's a great deal for the price. Man, I thought I was done with Star Wars, but then I started watching the Clone Wars cartoon and now there are a handful of characters I need on my shelf lol.

    Also picked up a MIB Black Voltron Coffin. Think I'll just sculpt my own robeast to chill in it though, I just can't bring myself to spend actual currency on the two Panosh made lol. Seriously getting the Voltron bug thanks to the (albeit, half-hearted) new toys. Not really finding any decent fansites though...most are either out of date or deserted. If anyone has one to recommend, let me know.

    Very true. Years ago I bought a G1 Scorponok which was missing all his parts except for the head and gun, and i'm still trying to find the last few remaining pieces. But he's become one my most cherished Transformers, simply due to the amount of time it's taken to finish him.

    I just received Mattel's Andre The Giant, and the Four Horsemen's new Outer Space Men figures. I love these little guys, they so much fun. Can't wait for the next few waves. Terra-Firma (the first female OSM figure) looks like she's going to be fantastic!

    Yay, new toys are showing up!



    First, Mega Bloks have minaturized they're Dragons. They pop together like the ones that come in eggs, but these are tiny and come in blind bags. They're pretty fun!



    Speaking of blind bags, I also found these. After a little research it turns out these are a British toyline, and so far that I know these are the first in US stores? Anyway, they're blind bagged figures of various kinds; ninjas, soliders, and then the ones above. There are a bunch of 'em, and I like the design!



    The Avengers stuff is showing up, and though I thought I was gona skip it, I ended up getting two to try them out. Cap is pretty cool even though they took out a few points of articulation. Only points I find myself missing are a torso twist and wrists. Otherwise, he's pretty cool!



    Then I got this Iron Man just 'cause I liked the colors. Turns out it's supposed to be an armor for flying outside friggin' BLACK HOLES so he can study them. Crazy.



    Found Storm from what I think is the current wave of Marvel Universe. First Storm I've bothered to get. I'm not totally happy with her, but she ain't bad. Only other figure I want from that wave is Psylock, and I know that's gona be tough...





    Finally in Transformers Prime, the only guys that matter! Soundwave and Megatron! They always end up having cool figures. Megatron has a really cool scratchy finish on his armor, and Soundwave is just creepy and awesome. I love how thin he is, and the fact that Laserbeak seamlessly fits into his chest is just AWESOME. I do wish he had some weapons, but I actually find myself to not be bothered by the absence. Megatron is good on weapons, but they could have been better. The action features work, but aren't that much fun, which is odd 'cause they worked in a lot of flip-out weapons in the last movie line that were pretty fun. I think they could have worked something better into Megatron's fusion cannon. Still, not bad overall!

    I got the recent reproduction release of the fortune-telling menu holder/napkin dispenser from The Twilight Zone episode, "Nick of Time" which held William Shatner's character in it's thrall.






    Plus I also got New Mutants #41-60

    I picked up some random odds and ends from a guy liquidating the last of his Transformers collection. I have vague notions of turning some of those into customs. But we shall see.

    Well, I see some parts from Devastator, Slag's sword, Powermaster Optimus Prime's dual barreled trailer guns, Ultra Magnus' head, and Squeezeplay's tail.

    Today, I picked up these two at the Supercenter Walmart, in Cicero.

    Squeezeplay's gun is there as well, and Ultra Magnus' gun and one connector. Unfortunately I'm still missing Squeezeplay's headmaster.

    My latest non-MOTU score was an MOC Breetai figure from the Robotech line. Yes, the figures are sub-par compared to other lines of the time that I collect (MOTU obviously as well as GI Joe) but Macross/Robotech has always been an all-time favorite of mine. I'm kinda surprised how many of the figures I DON'T have....
    Top 5 most wanted MOTUC figures: Lord Masque / Saurod / Mult-Bot / Angella / Sssqueeze


    Squishy Duck Man will return in "Thunderball"
