Definitely lots of potential with Trek given all the aliens and different series.  I too like the Kubricks better, just not the availability.  

Wanna trade some princesses for some booze (given that you keep putting the stem on the apple)?  Ariel would be priority #1.   ;D

Not sure if I want to keep them or not...I may pick up some extras though for her and ship them on up if I do keep them :-*  Trading booze for your daughter's toys.  There's got to be a special place in heaven for dad's like you :)

Nice thought, but I seriously doubt it.  I have ulterior motives.  If everyone in the house is collecting something, noone can complain about my habits ;)  Wife and kid are priority #1, but toys aren't that far behind ;D

Is there a Crow Kubrick? I would love 1. If not I wish they would make it.

Thanks for the links Scott.  I was curious, for those of you who collect Marvel Minimates, do you collect the line in its entirety, or just pick up the figures you like?  Personally, I only have the one TRU Spidey 4-pack for now, but I have been really tempted to collect most of the line.  I'd really like to get Spidey and all his friends/foes...but X-Men have been tempting as well.  But then I think I want to get Iron Man/Avengers....and Fantastic Four figures...seems like I'd eventually want them all.  Anyways, do you collect the entire line, or just certain aspects of it?  They're so small, it seems like wanting "them all" is even more tempting. :P

Well I just started collecting these and have only bought Powerman and Iron FIst. I pretty much plan on buying only the ones I like. I am not a fan of the Ultimate X-Men ones so i wont buy them. I will buy pretty much all the Spider-Villians and main characters. I can't wai tfor the Super Skrull.

Went on a Kubrick spending and opening binge this past weekend.  Got all of my Disney figs opened and displayed (Series 1-6) Loving these suckers, especially the two Black Hole guys (Bob and Maximillian)  

These figs remind me that I need to sit down and watch a Nightmare Before Christmas as well, never have seen that.

Also opened Rocky sets and got my Speeder Bike sets from Simon and the Universal Monsters series 1 and 2.  

I really love Series 1 of the Monsters set, Frankenstein is an awesome figure!
