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.

OK - I Found Blackbolt

A few days ago, I showed you the Black Panther Marvel Legend line up.

I finally tracked down Blackbolt - the missing piece to building the OKOYE Build a Figure.

Blackbolt will go nicely with Medusa. (There is a Walgreens exclusive Medusa from the Inhumans - need to share that soon).

Back to a Long Time Ago

Here's a little mashup I did for the Jawa Collector Group on Facebook.

These Jawas stumble on the time-machine souped up version of a DeLorean. No sign of Marty McFly, Jennifer or Doc Brown.

They scored with the abandoned machinery. A sandcrawler with a flux capacitor? Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Mega Construx Call of Duty WWII Anti-Tank Gun

More WWII sets for Call of Duty.

Would be great if they did some enemy soldiers as well. One of these days, perhaps.

Marvel Legends - The Black Panther

Awesome. Awesome. Awesome.  Cannot wait until this movie comes out. Really looking forward to it.

Went to Toys R Us the other day. I managed to find them all except Black Bolt. The cashier said I can't purchase them because they have a "don't display until January 1st." I didn't even have a chance to respond and she called her manager over to override it. Score!

Anyway, looking forward to the movie and these figures rock. Not sure why Sub-Mariner is in this mix. Also glad the Iron Man didn't come with a BAF piece. So tired of Iron Man.
