LORD OF THE RINGS MYSTERY MINIS

Due soon are the Lord of the Ring’s Mystery Minis.  Sold in blind boxes,  there are several figures you can get.  What I like about these are that it’s something I’m really into, so getting doubles wouldn’t be a bummer. If my buddy Rich was here I’d just give him the doubles, but also, since I like the books & movies, pretty much whichever one I get I’d like.

Gandalf I just need to get.  I really like how the Hobbits look, as well as Gimli.

Exclusive to Hot Topic is the Uruk-Hai & Eowyn, the Nazgul Witch-King.

Barnes & Novle also has a few exclusives, such as the Silver or invisible Frodo, the Gold Gimlu, as well as the Galadriel when refusing the One Ring.

The best part of Barnes & Noble getting things like this is, when something like these DOESN’T sell, they eventually put them into a clearance bin. The discount on them starts low but can get to even 75%.  Of course, it would be what doesn’t sell, but there’s always the chance some of these might not sell & they need to clear them out so you could find them pretty cheap.

TRIPLE THREAT

I just wanted to wish my Grandmother a Happy Birthday today, &, since she’s a triplet, happy birthday to her sister & brother as well (my aunt & uncle).

 

I wish you were still here with us, Grandma, but I’m so glad you’re with Grandpa.

E.T. PHONE HOME

E.T. is one of my favorite movies.  Ever since I was a kid I always wanted E.T. to come to me.  Just ask my sister, I had get me a red hooded sweatshirt for my birthday a few years ago just like Elliot wears.

A few weeks ago while at the mall my wife & I saw this guy in our local FYE

I figure it’s life size, if E.T. was here, but I don’t know how much it cost.  I was there this weekend & it was gone.

Bout two weeks ago we were in the bookstore & my wife pointed out this book to me on E.T.

The style is really cool, it has it’s own style yet keeps the vision of the movie there.

The Best Teen Titans Go Pop Ever

If you’ve never seen Season 3’s episode titled “40%, 40%, 20%” which has the greatest song ever, “The Night Begins to Shine” by B.E.R., or Season 4’s  4 part episode titled “The Day the Night Stopped Beginning to Shine & Became Dark Even Though it Was the Day Chapter One: I Saw You Dance”,  The Day the Night Stopped Beginning to Shine & Became Dark Even Though It Was the Day Chapter Two: The Story in Your Eyes”, “The Day the Night Stopped Beginning to Shine & Became Dark Even Though It Was the Day Chapter Three: Playing Hard to Get”, “The Day the Night Stopped Beginning to Shine & Became Dark Even Though It Was the Day Chapter Four: Night to Begins to Shine” then you’re missing out on some of the BEST Teen Titans Go Episodes EVER, with the of the coolest song to exist.

Now, Funko is releasing Pop’s of the Titans in their “Night Begins to Shine” versions. While these aren’t the final look of the figures, they’ll be coming out next year.

COOL STAR WARS POP

The one thing about Toy Fair is you get to see the new toys coming out for the year.  The other thing about Toy fair is you don’t get to see the new toys coming out for the year.  See, when we, my buddy Tommy & I, went to Toy Fair this past FEB, we saw lots of new things coming out, but things that weren’t out.

Funko is one interesting example.  So the Funko book has lots of new stuff shown, stuff that will be coming out that year, but not everything.  The Star Wars things I’m showing here I didn’t see at the Funko booth.  Some stuff at the both are things that they’re already selling.

So, these new Star Wars Pops are really cool.

He-Man if they were made back when Star Wars figures came out…

He-Man toys were created in the 1980’s. For me, toys were usually the size of a Star Wars figure or G.I.Joe (with the exception of the 12 inch Star Wars or Indiana Jones dolls), so these were much taller, which was pretty interesting.

 

Super 7, this great little company that created the “Reaction” line of figures that Funko used to promote (which they no longer do, Super 7 is on their own with it) has created these pretty cool He-Man figures that, to me, is pretty much what they would look like if they were made in the late 1970’s early 1980’s when Kenner released the Star Wars figures.

 

They have the look of the Kenner figures, the cards they’re on look like the Star Wars cards, & they even created a cool collector’s case to carry them in.
