    LOL. With all the stuff I find, that would be a really huge shipping box. I find all kinds of wacky stuff. I saw an animated soundwave last week at a drug store. I didn't pick him up though. Too bizarre
    I took Prime Wheeljack's swords away and gave him a gun and some tools. Now he's G1 Wheeljack for me. I like the Generations one fine, but he's not as nice looking overall.

    And hahah, no no, I don't want EVERYTHING you find. You can get me a discount Smokescreen and Dead End and that'll be good. Maybe some of those FOC figures.

    I almost bought him but I too decided against it. I guess for me, the thing is I would never appreciate him more than the Generations version. Plus, he doesn't appear on the too often.

    Not much of a "score" here. I imported the Redakai Kombat (Redakombat) set from the UK.

    I was expecting it to come with the exclusive FIRUPTION card, but it came with ICE SPIKES that I have already. I need to see if the seller will allow me to return it

    I got the newly released Hank and Dean Venture 3 3/4" action figures today:






    I like their accessories as Hank has his paper machete he used to try to kill his father, Dr. Venture, in a hormone and hallucegenic-induced fury while Dean comes with a shotgun that Dr. Venture urged both H.E.L.P.E.R. and Hank to use on him while he was undergoing a metamorphic pupal change orchestrated by the Monarch.

    The good about the figures are that they are the Venture Brothers and are in great scale with the previously released Brock Samson.



    The bad news is they can't stand worth a crap on their own. They need figure stands and luckily I have quite a few of the Entertainment Earth 3 3/4" figure stands which work great.

    I also got iGear's MW-01 and MW-02G, Spray (aka Seaspray) and 4th anniversary Rager (a.k.a. Huffer) who is replicates the toy's color of orange rather than the first release (which was more yellow in tone like the toon incarnation).






    Here's the comparison between the 2 Ragers (Huffers):



    And I had the Reprolabels sticker sheet for Spray (Seaspray) already so I placed them on him:



    Now, on their own, these guys are great! They look awesome next to the Transformers Classics/Generations/Universe figures. But they are smaller then the subsequent iGear releases of Hench (Brawn) and UFO (Cosmos). Spray and Rager don't look so good next to the Masterpiece Transformers like Hench and UFO do. But this is a minor gripe. I'd rather have them than not have them.

    Finally, I got the City Commander armor add-on by Fansproject which includes 2 shoulder missile attachments and vintage toy-inspired gun with 2 face plates for the Ultra Magnus United figure. The set I bought was a knock-off set but since they were the last thing I needed for my tricked out Ultra Magnus I decided it could risk it. They are of decent quality so I'm happy.

    I picked up wheeljack per sandman's recommendation. He isn't bad--definitely worth $5.99

    I found Hot Shot at a TJ Maxx. The highlight of the night was Ratchet who I really wanted and got at a Walgreen's.




    For some strange reason I felt compelled to pick up a Tonka Rowdy truck. Anyone who laughs will get my fist coming through their computer screen.....

    Just paid for one of these from a member here, to go with my WST collection



    And then ordered this. Now I have all the Starscream mold characters covered, except Thrust- heero doesn't make Thrust so I'll have to get an old Takara version. The $14 shipped price for one on eBay isn't winning me over though.

    Ok. I'll resist the temptation to open any of these new guys and instead open Junkheap -- who is still in the package some 6 months later.....





    Despite the use of the dreaded light-gray plastic, I think he looks pretty good. I will definitely check out his robot mode.... (in another 6 months....)

    Wow! These little guys are bricks. He's about 70% die cast. The blue area in the back and the wheels are plastic. Spectacular metallic green paint.



    Adult collector? I don't think so.

    G3 arrived today and he is pretty cool.







    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    I got my Dr. Mrs. The Monarch 3 3/4" action figure today:



    It's pretty cool in and of itself. However, my only gripe (well, besides not coming with a figure stand which these figures sorely need) is that she has no accessories. She was pictured with a rocket-launcher type weapon on the pre-orders but ultimately came with nothing. She seems a bit expensive (although the same price as the others) coming with nothing at all while Brock has his bowie knife, Hank has his paper machete and Dean has his shotgun.

    I also got my Masterpiece Rumble and Buzzsaw figures. Yeah, yeah...he's labeled as Frenzy but to me Rumble will always be blue and Frenzy will always be red.



    Nothing new here being that they are repaints of Laserbeak and Frenzy but they are still very welcome additions nonetheless. I did finally figure out how to snap on the piledriver arms so now they are securely on both Rumble and Frenzy's arms. Honestly, if they don't come out with any more cassettes I'd be satisfied but I would love a Ratbat cassette. Love to have but not necessary.

    Purchased the last remaining piece in order to complete my Centurions Jake Rockwell figure from scar1321

    Also, purchased a vintage View-Master.
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    Alas, not even I can get all of them cheap. The deluxe's are like $15-something and the cyberverse are like 10-something. BUt that's actually pretty reasonable for a drug store. Rite Aid would have been more.

    I got some new additions to the ranks of the little guys.

    That's still just more or less the same as TRU's prices. So no problem, Smokescreen is a good figure I read.

    It's actually a few dollars less than my TRU charges

    Well, he is a light gray plastic instead of white. That is the ugliest possible color. He can get away with it because he's small.

    I'm not going to open him now. I'm way behind on previously purchased figures. So, here is ejector finally opened and in toaster mode!
