I went over to my favorite local toy reseller today and found a nice supply of Cantina aliens! I have almost pulled the trigger on these guys several times on Ebay, but delayed as shipping starts making them a little high. Finding stuff locally is all the more fun anyways!
The Quarren dude on the right is actually Jabba the Hutt's accountant, but I am sure he frequents the cantina for a few drinks now and then.
I had to take the coat off Ketwol the Pacithhip, to highlight his stilts. At first I thought he had bionic legs, but in reality his normal legs are just really stumpy. A set of starched pants help cover them up too.
Djas Puhr has some of the most bendy skinny weaponry I have ever seen in a toy.
Ellorrs Madak reminds me of Kif from Futurama. He was one of the aliens I had on my short short list, so I was super excited to find him. Tessek has some great hands too.

Although not metal this time, a neat set of cars this year. A few feature some really nice bright lights. I almost wish they all had a light feature, they would have looked super sharp together. Great series to move into summer with.

Found a Springer today.
Springer is an original generation Transformer, third season replacement, and a Triple Changer too. It took way too long to finally get a new updated Classics Springer. Overall, he is a high performing toy, with plenty to do. All three forms, Car, Helicopter, and Robot, turn out really well. Springer's colors are nice and vibrant too.
I am too lazy to get into the other forms right now, although he transforms very easily, here is the back of the box instead.
Totally pick one up if you are into Classics and Triple Changers.
