Here's a blast from the past.  After a tip from the HissTank forums, I stopped in Dollar Tree tonight and picked up two of the 4" Terminator Salvation endo skeletons.  They had the T-R.I.P. and T-700 along with Marcus and Battle Damage Marcus, all for $1.  So, for $2.16 I picked up both 'bots.  For that price I felt it was worth it but if I'd had to pay $1 more I'd probably have passed.

I figure these would make good background pieces somewhere.

Endoskeletons make GREAT Star Wars robot custom fodder, E.  I highly recommend them.  Sometimes a swap with a droid head of a random type, maybe an arm swap or something.  Very little work  needed.  Hell, just laying around in a pile at Watto's looks fine.

I'm gonna hit Dollar Tree and nab what I can now.  All those figures were good custom fodder ultimately.

So I decided to look for some snap kit aliens from Hot Toys.  Buying cases back in the day was apparently a very wise investment on my part. ;D Wow!

Saw a Kyle Reese from the original Terminator movie at TRU recently.  I think that as a whole, NECA has been doing a great job with their licenses.  I actually know a couple of people over there, and they're cool.  But as for Kyle Reese?  The facial likeness just looks off.  The rest of the figure nailed the griminess of Reese from the movie, since he looked like an 80's vintage homeless guy.  But the face just didn't look enough like Michael Biehn.

I've wanted this for a while but I picked up a MISB Kenner Alien Queen Hive playset...  It's 3.75" scaled, so the Queen's massive and impressive looking.  She'll look sharp with my Hot Toys Xenomorphs and stuff.  I wish I could amass a nice nest of Snapkit eggs but they're pricey, as are the eggs that come with the Takara ones (obviously).  I have a little Predator/Aliens/Star Wars crossover going on and it's awesome. :)

You know the Empire would've totally tried weaponizing Aliens.

Received, and I swear to god the goop is still good I think.  Sloshing the can around, I hear it making a pretty solid sound but not hard...  sounds still rubbery.  I'm surprised.

I saw the new NECA Big Chap figure at TRU yesterday, the one with the frosty white dome. Looked pretty nice.

Meant to post here...

I got a Microman Alien Warrior today in the mail and am glad to have a 2nd...  Good figure, great accessories though.  Wish eggs, face huggers, and chest bursters, were simply standard-issue accessories with all Alien figures from any company haha.
