Beautiful clearance and much more!

So I had to wait extra because this deluxe Aliens minimates set was missing from my first package but here it is!  A queen alien impaling Bishop (better pick below) and a minimate powerloader (one of my favorite sci-fi things ever)  The Queen doesn't stand up that well but the powerloader makes up for any complaints!

oh poor Bishop

Mega Blocks is now doing some Ninja Turtles stuff. This is a Donatello minifigure that I blind bagged (I felt the bo staff through the package)  This is from the new series and I love that he is in love with April!

They also mad some from the original series. The figure is a bit smaller but looks spot on. I love the background pics it came with of Krang attacking the city!

I got the Attack on Tokadana Lego set from the Force Awakens . I don't particular care about the temple part but now I have a Finn, A Kylo Ren, two first order Stormtroopers and a Maz!  This set was worth it just for the great minifigures.  

Got a bunch of new minimates too. This is the Secret Wars wave with a Maestro Hulk, Iron Man 2020 (love new versions of IM) Captain Marvel, Howard the Duck, and Lady Thor.  The wave had some others that I didn't keep but I love that they are still putting out waves of minimates (this is wave 64!)

I also got a set for Back to the Future 2 with a Griff, Marty with his two ties, Marty Jr. and Marlene.  The Griff is the definite winner of the wave with his bat and hoverboard!

Then we have wave 65 which was a Deadpool themed wave!  We have him dressed up as a mascot, Zenpool,  Now Deadpool, Secret Wars Deadpool, long awaited and loved Siryn, Copycat, and a Messiah Complex Cable (who has a little baby Deadpool).  Can't wait for the movie only a few more weeks!

Then surprisingly Hastings had an exclusive set I found out about from minimatemultiverse and I ordered it before I even knew what it was because they didn't have a picture.  This is from Alien (as opposed to the Aliens sets they have been doing).  This has Dallas, Brett, Lambert and the Xenomorph.  They are going to do a full wave of Alien with the Spacesuits so I am looking forward to that.

So yesterday my friend called and said Walmart was doing 50% off all clearance products so this Avengers Age of Ultron set which is normally 90$ was on clearance for 60$ and then 50% off that made it only 30$.  The minifigures alone made it awesome but to get this awesome quinjet for a third the price is the one of the most beautiful clearances I have ever acquired!

Most of the Christmas haul!

This may be the last post of the year so I had to put up my Christmas presents and other toys I purchased during my time off of work!  After watching the Force Awakens and I had to pick up this Rey's speeder set because I had to have a Rey minifigure!  After you see the movie you will want one too!

Walgreens of all places has started carrying minimates from the Marvel animated shows. So I had to pick up this Hulkbuster minimate that is from the Avengers cartoon. Still love me my minimates!

Nostalgia ebay purchase here of Fitor from Gobots!  This is one my older brother had that I played with and I loved because it is just a really cool space ship!  This one is in fair condition but I got a great deal.  These old toys are so well made even though they don't have the same articulation as new similar toys.

This was part of my Christmas present from my wife. This is Queen Grayskull who goes along with King Grayskull, the first MOTU Classics figure I bought at SDCC back in 2007. She was only on the 200X series but I love her look and of course I love MOTUC figures in general.  You can read her bio below. At this point there is one more figure next year I want and that is the fimation version of Skeletor so this line is basically done for me barring any big announcements.

My wife got this classic Iron Man Vinylmation for me and had it in my stocking.  this is hands down my favorite Iron Man look so she was so awesome to get this for me!

I had a student last year, Jeff, who hand made this AT-ST for me for Christmas. It is amazing!  It is a great gift on its own but coming from a student who took the time to make it for me makes it mean a lot more.  

 I saw this Gundam at Barnes and Noble and couldn't pass it up because I love the look and the bright colors. It was great putting it together too because these new Gundam models are amazing.  This one is called the Try Burning Gundam or something weird like that, I don't really care about the name just that it looks cool!

 My actual present showed up today in the mail (incomplete as they missed something on my order).  It came after Christmas because the Aliens minimates didn't get released until the 23rd.  This is wave two of the Aliens 2 packs. We have privates Frost and Crowe, Ripley, Newt, and two aliens (including a cool on fire one).  I have all of the Colonial Marines now!  They forgot in my order the deluxe sets with Queen and power loader so those will be on here soon!

I also snagged a Predator that had a helmet as the other one I got didn't.  This is the one from Predator 2 so now I have something from 1 and 2.

Lastly I got the Zombies villains 3 set with Ultron Drone, Pyro, Bullseye, and Vulture.  I love Marvel and I love zombies so putting them together is super cool and the minimates don't disappoint.

Here was my Star Wars is this week purchase a First Order black series stormtrooper.  Oh man the next 24 hours are going to be so long!  I am seeing The Force Awakens tomorrow at 8 and then Friday again at 5.  I really do like the look of these stormtroopers and the black series are the best Star Wars toys of all of ever.

Here is another Tokyo Cars toy that I had to snag just because it goes with all my other Tokyo Mater cars.

Science Fiction vinyls series 2 came out so I snagged one and got a Cylon which is awesome for blindboxing but I love the look and I really want almost all of series two so we will see!

TMNT minimates series 3 came out and luckily Toys R Us got most of the wave so that I don't have to pay way more to get the blind bags.  Here is Rocksteady, Slash and Beebop! I love this new show so these minimates are the bee's knees!

Here are the vision quest turtles from the beginning of last season. I love these looks and that they gave the turtles alternate new weapons. 

Here we have Nightmare Before Christmas series 2 which again I was saved from blind bagging at Hot Topic because these were at TRU.  You have Zero, Pumpkin King Jack, Easter Bunny, and Santa Jack.  

Lastly I have snagged some vintage ebay toys that I had as a kid, this is the first one I got it is a Boulder from the Rock Lords.  This is in great condition and was  a great deal!  I love getting toys I had as a kid the nostalgia feeling is hard to beat!

A little Salacious in nature!

I love the Predator movies but didn't feel the need to get all of the Predator minimates so this is the set I chose with on Dutch and one Predator and now I don't feel like I have to get more. They are ok looking I am not a fan of the Predator's face.  I am excited for new Aliens sets coming soon!  stay tuned!

It is sad that I bought this whole thing just to get the Salacious Crumb but that's how much I love that character!  I kept the Leia (obviously) and who know it may be one of the last Slave Leia products they make now that Disney is saying they won't do it anymore and the Jabba is now sitting on my desk at work and it amuses students so the rest of the set wasn't a waste!  I love this little Salacious though he is so awesome.

Superior minimates

I places an order back in June and this Ant-Man movie set of minimates didn't come out till last week so I finally got everything else.  I loved this movie and so this is a great set with Ant-Man Yellow Jacket, Hope Van Dyne and Hank Pym.  This set killed it with the details on the Ant-Man and Yellow Jacket.  

Then I got the rest of my Avengers Age of Ultron wave 2 minimates there is the Hulkbuster (which I was disappointed didn't come with parts to take him out to make a regular Iron Man.  Then there is a Hydra Soldier, Vision, Ulysess Klaue, and Hulk.  I love this Vision but wish I had ordered the variant but the press release picture made it look not that great but then I saw a production picture and it looked better. I only need one though so I will just live with the one I got.

Then from the Axis wave of minimates I only got this one two pack of Superior Iron Man and Apocalypse (who has replaced my old one because I like the look of this one better).  This Iron Man is great and as I have been playing this character on my app Contest of Champions I was extra excited for it.

Then this is a single pack Alien minimate that was an SDCC exclusive. It is unique because it glows in the dark.  I am keeping it in the package though because the clear head piece on the top doesn't stay on :(

Mini Masters

So Mattel made these Mini Masters of the Universe figures that each came with a piece of Castle Grayskull.  For their size though they were too expensive until they went on clearance last week for 50% off!!!!! So I bought them all and adore them. I love little stylized figures like this and these ones look amazing.  Here you have Faker and Man-At-Arms

Here is King He-man and Clawful

Here is He-Man and Mer-Man  I love this Mer-Man his face and look are simply great!

Next is Stratos and Scare Glow

Then Skeletor and Moss Man.  Skeletor and Mer-man are my favorites of them all. I love the little Havoc Staff and his face too.

Lastly you have Beast Man and Zodak.  I wish they would make more but then again unless they go on clearance I wouldn't buy them.  This price was good enough but even if I love how something looks doesn't mean I will fork out for it!
