The end of August is approaching fast so it's time for another wrap-up post. Stuff I traded for, stuff I impulse bought and stuff I found at flea markets, all in a merry jumble. This was a fun month for me, as you will see from some of the purchases...
First some random stuff. Two GI Joe vehicles and some figures. The little blue guy is the vintage Real Ghostbusters ghost that goes with Peter Venkman. There's also a Lazer Beast in there, those are always fun to find.
3 Vintage Lego sets with boxes and instructions. Sadly two of them miss a few pieces (which I should be able to fix) but the light-and-sound police cruiser is complete, and the rarest one of the three!
Robot Heroes. These were really cheap, but they're so damn adorable I can't resist them.
Some Unicron trilogy toys. Some of these were very complete including comic and instructions. I initially didn't like the Armada etc toys, but I've warmed up to them a lot over the last couple of years. Plus, I have some sort of obsession with minicons, micromasters and other minimal Transformers. I just like making huge armies of the little dudes! Sadly, Jetfire's minicon just broke straight up when I transformed him, and some of the transparent ones have slight plastic cracks... I guess guys this small are not as structurally sound as their larger brethren.
War For Cybertron Megatron and Optimus Prime. These toys are really really cool and I regretted passing them up when I was in the US last time. Fortunately I found someone willing to part with his for cheap. This version of Optimus is infinitely cooler than the dinky FOC one that's out right now. Great toys!
G1 Pretenders without the "pretend" bit. Harder to find the inner robots in good condition than the shells, so I couldn't resist.
And finally... a G1 Wreck-Gar! He's in great condition other than missing stickers and a little bit of paint wear. Naturally his accessories are missing, but still. This is a toy I never had as a kid, so I'm really happy to add him to the mix.
And now, just for Scotward...
(Yes it's a Transformers and a Venture Brothers joke. I'm such a hopeless nerd.)
Hope you guys enjoyed.
