Finally, the 25th line continues with an awesome Sci-Fi, Techno Viper, Zarana, Crazylegs, Skystriker and that new 30th Ann. Storm Shadow.  I hope they squeeze a Night Viper into that 30th lineup.  Really wish they would have done a better job on Steel Brigade; used diferent body.

Saw the new Scourge today and was very tempted.  I would buy it but I sold all of my Classics last year.  Blurr and Kup looked cool too.  Don't know what will happen when I see Wheeljack.

It still seems hard to justify over $20 per figure when they are just repaints.  Leatherneck still has a Gung-Ho head.  For the $305 plus Club Membership for the set I thought we would at least get a unique Leatherneck head sculpt.

Picked up Special Missions at Borders with a 50% off in-store coupon a while back.  Still haven't picked up Classic Volume 9 or 10.  Can't wait volume 10 because I've never read anything over 100.

Still holding off the new issues beyond 155 1/2 in anticipation for the first trade.

So far I've purchased a few POC but those are now gone.  I was tempted by some of wave 3 last night but passed.  I like the accessories, especially the shield, that comes with the Shock Trooper.  Snake Eyes looks like the best one yet besides 1982/83 and 1985.

The Club has started to post pictures of the Mission Brazil II set.

Anyone going to Florida at the end of March?  Unfortunately, I'll be missing another one.

The only downside to those bound volumes is that they don't include the short comics like in issue #1 and 50. But those don't have any influence on the main storyline.

Bought Special Missions TPB #1 the other day and it has the Special Missions story from issue 50.

I only saw them one time and that's when I bought them.  

Just received the 1980 Hot Wheels Sto & Go City Playset I bought on ebay.  Sold mine off years ago and found a nice new one to put on display with my childhood Hot Wheels and Matchbox.  I kept all my childhood cars and carrying case but sold off everything else in the late 80s.  I also have the 1979 Service Station coming soon. 

Anyone else remember the Sto & Go Hot Wheel Sets from 1979, 1980,....?

Here's most of my loose international GI Joe figures; at least the ones I have organized. 

I wish I could say I had the no camo Jammer but I missed out on that one 2 years ago. 

I didn't realize it until I put both Gauchos together but the one on the right with backpack has a darker vest. 

The Gaucho with backpack and red vest and Jammer with green camo were recently MOC but I freed them.

Hunter is my favorite Action Force figure.  Right now Tigor is my favorite Brazil figure.

Received Tigor on Saturday and I'll post some pictures of him with my other Brazil and UK/Euro figures later.

Big Lob is sold out. 

I waited too long to buy and I just resorted to ebay for one.  I didn't want to wait too long and have to pay a lot more.  Who knows if they will skyrocket in price but if you need one you may want to buy one while below $40.  I managed to buy one for about $34 shipped.  Still not crazy about the Grace Jones head but the completest in me said buy buy buy.

The Star Trek stuff at my local TRU sure isn't moving. 

I picked up the 2009 movie Enterprise on clearance at K-Mart about a month ago.  I didn't pick up any of the figures.  I would have bought them if they were the same size as the regular 1992-2000 Playmates versions.  I remember Playmates released 6" inch movie figures for First Contact and the new size turned collectors away.  3 3/4" is nice but it didn't go far.

Ran into the series 2 minifigures today at TRU.  I picked up the Mexican (x2 for my Wild West sets), witch, vampire and pharaoh.  Now I have to watch Bricklink for some of the series 1 guys that I never saw at retail.  Will probably buy the Robot, cowboys, indians and some spacemen.

I didn't realize this.  I haven't read the single issues since I was kid. 

The only downside to those bound volumes is that they don't include the short comics like in issue #1 and 50. But those don't have any influence on the main storyline.

I haven't been following MOTUC lately.  I've been eyeing a few but still am passing.  Right now all I have left is Hordak.  Trap-Jaw will be mine someday and maybe Roboto.
