We've reached then end of the first week in October and the "gets" are off to a great start! This week I finally found some Marvel Universe wave 19 figures, a second Vehicon trooper for my Transformers: Prime collection, a hard to find (at retail prices, anyway) Joe figure and a couple more Marvel mini-busts from Bowen!
1. Cyclops Mini-Bust Bowen Designs
2. Vehicon Transformers: Prime - Robots in Disguise
3. Firefly G.I. Joe: Pursuit of Cobra
4. She-Hulk Marvel Universe
5. Spider-Man (Future Foundation) Marvel Universe
6. Scarlet Witch Marvel Universe
7. Kingpin Mini-Bust Bowen Designs
First up, in my endeavours to acquire some Marvel statues I've learned I really, REALLY enjoy the mini-busts by Bowen Designs. While I was only seeking to have a nice collection of Daredevil-related items, I stumbled upon a sweet deal on eBay for a '90s style Cyclops. Of course, now I'm toying with the idea of collecting X-Men mini-busts. There are a lot of (expensive) things coming down the pike and hunting down some of the older X-busts will be quite pricey, but it's probably something I'll focus on throughout 2013.
Last Sunday, on my way home from work, my girlfriend asked me stop at CVS and pick up some medicine for my daughter who was feeling "sicky-poo". So of course, I did, and while there decided to check out the toy aisle. To my surprise I found Firefly from the "Pursuit of Cobra" series. The package was quite beat up, possible the victim of a botched attempted theft because the bubble was coming off the card along the bottom edge. I inspected it closely and determined there was nothing missing to I took him over to the checkout line... along with some cough medicine.
That rounds out my toy pick-ups for this week. I few non-toy-related items, but nonetheless relevant, were: The Avengers Blu-Ray/DVD, two Vertigo gold foil trading cards and a spice rack. I wasn't sure which version of Avengers I would pick-up, but due to budget constraints I decided on the BR/DVD combo pack which cost $22.99 (plus tax) at Target. I only saw the movie once and that was in theaters, so I'm excited to view it again. Probably doing that tonight.
That is it for this week! Come back next week when I inch ever closer to completing the entire The Transformers, "G1", season 1 cast in classics style!
