The Honeypot: January 2012

I don't know about you, but January kind of flew by! February begins tomorrow along with the countdown to my 30th birthday (17 days to go!). This year I wanted to keep better track of my toy-related purchases and thought it would be fun to add a new feature on the Hive where I recount my toy haul for the month. I debated doing this as a weekly feature, but decided it would be too much work (although they seem to have a good time with it over on OAFE). So instead I'll keep it on a 30-day schedule, linking all available reviews and eventually add a group shot of all the purchases. "SWARM" to see what came in this month!

2012 started off with a nice find as the final retail wave of Mattel's WWE Legends started hitting Toys R Us stores here in Miami. My two "must-haves" for the wave were Eddie Guerrero and Ultimate Warrior, but thanks to a $5 coupon, I picked up Texas Tornado, too. I'd like to eventually add the Von Erichs to the collection, but I'm holding out for some type of BOGO sale.

I quickly went over budget this month due to the unexpected release of the final Hercules figures by TFC along with a few other third party transforming figures. So, without further ado, here are the toys I bought this month, presented in the order they were purchased.

Well, that's it for this month, it doesn't seem like a big haul, but it was costly. February should be smaller considering I found most of the stuff I wanted this month, but I will be receiving my first Matty subscription toys via the Club Voltron Force sub. Until next month, happy hunting!
