Happy Saturday everybody! I've decided to change up the schedule [what schedule? - Ed.] a bit and start posting The Honeypot on Saturdays, allowing it to appear at the top of the post list through weekend and probably Monday, too. Because of a recent change in my schedule at work I usually end up photographing my hauls on Thursday nights now, so it makes sense to get the 'pot posted on the weekends. Moving on...
This time around we find DC-related toys making a comeback at the Hive after a significant hiatus. Check it out!
From May 18th to May 31st
1. Superman Man of Steel Movie Masters
2. Jor-El Man of Steel Movie Masters
3. The Bat Hot Wheels Batman (1:50)
4. Batgirl Batman Legacy
5. Batgirl (New 52) Batman Unlimited
6. Honky Tonk Man WWE Elite Collection
7. AJ Lee WWE Elite Collection
8. Alberto Del Rio WWE Elite Collection
9. CM Punk WWE World Champions
These were found at the "uptown" Toys R Us store and after a price match to the website, a coupon for $10 off AND a gift card a friend gave me for my birthday, I picked up these two along with "The Bat" for about $25. This is the third "Bat" I purchase, but this one comes in 1:50 scale, larger than the standard HW and Matchbox releases, plus it comes with a stand!
Week two started out with a package from Amazon. After putting up a Batman display last month I noticed there was a very central figure missing: Batgirl. I pretty much skipped her at retail, but a quick search on Amazon snagged me both her Silver Age and New 52 versions for about $16 apiece.
And capping off this installment of the Honeypot is the long-awaited arrival of WWE Elite 21! I found a whole case (assortment "A") of the series at my local Target on Thursday and boy, was the timing just right! There were 2 Rybacks, 2 Mysterios and one each of Orton, AJ, ADR and Honky Tonk Man.
Well, that's a wrap on another edition of the Honeypot. Until next time, happy hunting!
