McFarlane Skybound Exclusive Walking Dead Old Man Rick Grimes

This Skybound Exclusive Walking Dead Rick Grimes figure recreates his look after All Out War. The All Out War against Negan and the Saviors story arc completes and the comic does a two year time jump where the survivor civilization is growing.  Rick sports a beard, a cane, and his prosthetic hand.

This is a cool figure and nice to see Skybound and Walgreens still keeping the McFarlane Walking Dead line alive.  Skybound offered a colored and a black and white/bloody variant.

Star Wars 3-3/4 Inch Black Series Sandtrooper and Boba Fett Prototype

More surprises. I did not know these existed when I found them at Walmart. Much like the Walrus Man and Tusken Raider figures, these were a surprise. Not sure what Hasbro's plan is for the 3-3/4 inch super articulated line but I guess they are making an attempt to keep collectors happy.

Always fun to find the unexpected.

Walmart Black Panther Exclusive

Joining the Black Panther mania, Marvel released an exclusive version of the Panther, which is nothing more but a repack of an older version. It does come with a spear. Not sure if the previous version had a cape but this one does. But hey, it was released before the Okoye Build-A-Figure series was released. And this is still a cool version.

Waddingtons UK Star Wars Vintage Action Figure Puzzles

These two puzzles were manufactured and sold by UK company Waddingtons. These were released in 1979. I found the first one by accident and then discovered the second years later when I was seeing if there were more.

Pretty cool that the people who put these together created a moisture vaporator and a Lars homestead years before Hasbro ever got to doing one.

That's a lot of Darth Vader TIE fighters.

The Last Jedi Acht-To Playset

You may recognize the base of this diorama. Anyway, since Kenner used it for two different environments, I decided a little spray paint will make it a nice Acht-To playset. Of course, since it was 0 degrees outside, the spray paint job was quick and incomplete.

Anyway, enjoy! (Whether you enjoyed the Last Jedi or thought it was a sign of the apocalypse.  :-)

Marvel Legends Invisible Woman and Herbie - Walgreens Exclusive

I found the Human Torch a few weeks ago. I thought the Walgreens Exclusive Invisible Woman had long passed me by.

By luck, I was in Walgreens and spotted one. Glad to add it to the collection. The only Marvel Legends figure I never acquired was Mr. Fantastic. May have to chase him down one of these days.
