Adventures in Toy Shopping: Tuesday Morning Finds

2 04 2013

Stopped by my local Target today and picked up a few things since a lot of Hasbro brands were on sale.

First up some Transformers Prime Cyberverse figures. Found new bulkier Optimus Prime, Predaking, and Airachnid.

Picked up some G.I Joe Retaliation movie figures. Roadblock has an awesome head sculpt of the Rock and some really cool weapon accessories.

This line is heavy with various types of ninjas and the Cyber ninja has got to be one of the top ones. Don’t know if he shows up in the movie (haven’t seen it yet) but he has a really cool design and color scheme.

And just for fun, nabbed a 5 figure set of the Micro Force series. They’re rubber based figures and have a fun sculpt.

Here’s the Mirco Force next to the Retaliation Movie Snake Eyes for a size comparison.

Adventures in Toy Shopping: Big Haul Today

13 02 2013

I get asked a lot by viewers is how can I afford the hobby of toy collecting. Well the simple answer is I sell off older toys I just don’t care for. I’ve been collecting for a long time so i have vast stock of action figures that I find could use a new home. Rarely do i need to spend extra cash to buy something new that I want.

So went to Target and Toysrus and picked up some new additions (no video reviews on these).

1st up is Bandai’s Power Rangers Megaforce 7″ Armored Ultra Mode Red Ranger ($19.99)

Playmates Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mutagen Ooze Tossin’ Raphael ($8.99 Target). This one was an experimental buy to see if I could do a head swap. You can!

Playmates TMNT Raph

Got a mini non-transformable Rescue Bot Optimus Prime ($2.99 Toysrus) that comes in a small bag. You’ll have to walk over to the boys section rather than the action figure section to find him. A nice desktop figure. Also snagged the Hasbro Transformers WFC Ultra Magnus ($14.99 Target). Nice repaint of the previously release Optimus Prime version. Digging the extra sword he comes with.

Target had the newest Hasbro Transformers Beast Hunters Voyager Class figures. Passed on Optimus Prime because of that horrible head sculpt but Predaking ($19.99) looked very cool.


Toysrus had the very cool Batman/Superman/Killer Croc 3 pack. I passed on it but I’m probably gonna pick it up at the end of week. All the figures look very cool.
