Adventures in Toy Shopping: It Ain’t Human

28 06 2014

Hopped around during the week to a few local establishments and picked up few cool things. None of them human.

First up I got Neca’s poseable Godzilla 2014 movie action figure. He’s equal to scale with the S.H.MonsterArts figures but not as well sculpted or highly articulated. Still, he has enough articulation to be considered very good in my book.

My local Target had just got in the TMNT movie figures. I most likely won’t get all the figures, but I got my favorite Turtle Raphael. The sculpt is pretty good for a $9 figure.

They’re priced the same as the Animated Nick TMNT figures. He actually scales a bit taller than my Battle Shell Raph. His articulation system is the same as Battle Shell Raph.

My comicshop owner buddy gave me this UltraAct Glenfire. Apparently it was misordered and the distributor didn’t want it back. Lucky to have friends in the right places.

Lastly, this one was an online deal I got from Bigbadtoystore.com when they had their Botcon 2014 sale. MP Lambor (aka Sideswipe) was $10 off so I was able to get him for $70. He looks great next to my MP Prowl.
