I hit the jackpot with the District 4 Fishing Tribute. He doesn't even have a name online? Or does he? Tribute Boy, is all I have, and he is from the fishing district. Darn, I can't even remember how he gets killed. In the beginning fight, the kid who is hiding behind all the weapon supply crates??? The Figurine is pretty static, podium-ized, and painted okay like. His hairline paint is a bit off. Since he is a boy, I wonder if the other tributes will be scaled taller. I might have to pick up another one.

Squinkies Marvel Avengers Movie Edition Capsule toys: Black Widow Hulk Iron Man Captain America Thor Hawkeye Nick Fury and Loki!
I can finally officially debut this video to the site, as it is cleared of all possible issues. For some reason the filters mistook this for the actual new movie, which is reasonable as this video is obviously high budget. This Marvel Avenger Squinkie set is your best fastest way to collect all main key characters at lowest cost. As you can see in the video, there are many fun things that you can put them through. My favorite is the mini Hulk, he is fun to put the "pressure" on. And if you are having a hard time finding any kind of Black Widow toy to have, here is your chance.

The year was 2003, I was at Target on Eagle, I see a Whiplash, I no get, I don't see again until today. I originally passed, thinking I would see again really soon. Bad idea. The line fell apart quickly after that, and I was crushed to this day. My favorite Masters of the Universe line is the early 2000 stuff. Its unique and more "playable" than the vintage stuff, or the new "fancy" Matty Collector stuff.
In moving my Toy Museum from one room to another, I started opening lots of toys in storage boxes, like Buzz-Off and Merman from a couple weeks ago. I didn't have a Whiplash stored, so I had to go to Ebay. I got a crazy, crazy, insane, major, rocking deal on him, almost less than I would have paid for him in 2003. Most of that line Are Ebay-able from ten to twenty, but a few of the rare ones go way higher.
After immediately opening him I will say without doubt, he is top five out of something. He is a total large, solid, thick, fantastically playable action figure. He comes with a strange alien sword like weapon, and holds it well. His strong fists and his flashy skirt are also noteworthy.
Whiplash's pinkies give Megan Fox's stumpy thumbs a run for her money.
Whiplash's action feature is a strong 180 degree tail whip...
He-Man is going to have to work extra hard now that this guy is on the shelf with him.

Oh, give me a day or so, and I will post the bags with codes that I got.
Here is the second part to my discourse on Micro Machine Travel City. There are some hidden gems in this review, like the return of the Pocket Volcano.

lucky peak reservoir, and had no backstory knowledge. I personally gave him secondary pilot chair, behind Slip Stream, and a slight water fetish, and that was that.
It makes more sense that he was testing the hazardous contaminated waters of Lucky Peak's Sandy Point play area, before he fell in and sunk to the bottom and was caught by my foot. And it makes sense why he comes with all these air sensing tools.
If you can, get Airtight, he is a must.

Both Revenge from the Cosmic Arc and The Lair of the Dork Horde had my curiousity caught over these new S.L.U.G. Zombies. Not too bad of toy, would be fun to over collect for sure.

Wow, in an amazing turn around after last nights rant, I was able to get Transformers Prime Soundwave Can do Some Things review uploaded! It also uploaded fine, with no disputes (Like is should!). Its pretty short, but I didn't really plan to do that much anyways. If I get good feed back, maybe I will do Cliffjumper next.

I also started a Soundwave can do somethings stop motion, but its terrible, and still not video ready either. Then to top things off I decided to switch the Toy Museums home location room, with the nursery room, thus wasting more creative time. Although the soon-to-be NEW Toy Museum location is totally mind blowing, and I should do a proper full collection video quickee someday too soon.
Alas! Anyways, here are a few shots of Soundwave from the so-far, "botched" stop motion. As toys go he is pretty neat. Maybe a tad small, but still worthy as a Drone, which makes a great disguise from our normal tape player.
Oh, wait, here is the review now :)

Between my B-Day stuff, and Easter sales, I have a lot of stuff to go through. That case of Joe's is enough to keep me warm all summer. I tried to find video review stuff today at ToysRUs, and I think I found a couple great things to play with. Stay tuned...

Getting bored with the same old stuff again, so I traveled outside my normal realm to look at the new crazy Monsuno toys! Monsuno, or energized monster DNA in a core container that shoots out and does stuff. I was mainly drawn to Charger, the blue moose one with the huge antlers...
The toys are pretty okay. They seem to function a little squirrely, and maybe it would have been easier if I had a competitor to play with. Or, maybe since they are pretty small, they are a bit weak. I would like to see one twice its size. I may look into a launcher, and a few other monsters in the future.
