Star Wars - Vintage Kenner Collection - Stormtrooper Luke and K2SO

Managed to stumble across these guys at Target. Someone had actually hidden them on a clearance shelf. Didn't see Power Droid though. Always great to have something new from A New Hope and love anything from Rogue One. K2SO was one of my all time favorite characters and droids.

Jurassic Park - Isla Nublar Escape Set

I hesitated to buy the exclusive John Hammond set online a few months ago. Then I bumped into this. Totally unexpected. A set with Hammond, Dr. Ellie Sattler and two raptors.  What would really have made this set awesome was having Tim and Lex. Still, pretty darn cool we have Hammond and Nedry is on the way as well.

Fortnite 4 Pack - Bigfoot, Prickly Pear, Flamingo King and Elite Agent

Once again, besides having action figures that are so fun and creative, you never know when something new will land at stores. Makes the hunt fun again.

Stumbled on this 4 Pack at Target. Lots of fun.

Star Wars Black Series Han in Carbonite 40th Anniversary

This was a clever offer for fans who missed the original Carbonite Han that came with the very first Black Series figure - Boba Fett, as part of a San Diego Comic Con exclusive. Since Hasbro is working on the 40th Anniversary of Empire Strikes Back, they manufactured a few more of these and put it in the 40th Anniversary Kenner style card. This was a HasbroPulse exclusive.

Funny story. I was on vacation when it was delivered. It said delivered but it was nowhere to be found. Finally, it was delivered when the post office brought my held mail. Funny thing, the 4-LOM and Zuckuss 2 Pack that also came from HasbroPulse was delivered.

I was a little frustrated when it was missing at first because it was already sold out and going for $90+ on secondary sites.

Jazwares Fortnite Hopper

It's been awhile since I've seen any new Fortnite figures from Jazwares. I stumbled across this guy. Looks like there's a few more that will be joining him. Love these things. The fun part is you never know what new figures are going to show up and when.

Custom 3D Printed Battlestar Galactica Colonial Viper

Hanging out on a Battlestar Galactica collectors group on facebook, I came across someone who 3D prints Colonial Vipers, Cylon Raiders and other vehicles that fit the 1970s Mattel action figures. I was always a fan of those two fighters but always bummed the ones that were released weren't to scale. Well, that's changed. This is solid craftsmanship all the way. The Viper costs $150. Raider is $230.  Really nice stuff.
