Atelis Warrior from Boss Fight - Kokomo Toys Exclusive

Kokomo Toys has released another exclusive Boss Fight figure. This is a bad ass looking Gorgon snake warrior with gold armor and weapons. A great addition to the Boss Fight collection.

Playmobil Ghostbusters

I'm starting to get addicted to Playmobil. Maybe cause they're always smiling. Had these Ghostbusters figures for awhile. Finally took them out of the package.

Here are the packaged photos. Someday I'll need to get the Fire Station and Ectomobile sets.

Jabba's Palace

Brought out the old vintage Kenner figures. Have never set up a Jabba's Palace scene until now. This was fun.

Star Wars Score! Last Jedi stuff!

As I mentioned a week or so ago, I decided not to shop online anymore. I will enjoy the hunt for toys again, and if I see them out in the wild, great. If I don't, so be it....there may be a few holes in the collection and my wallet will be lighter.

I got lucky this weekend.

First, I went to Toys R Us and found the six inch Black Series Jaina Solo and Rose. I honestly was expecting never to see Jaina out in the wild. There are several Black Series figures I have never seen in the wild - Boba Fett, Sabine Wren, Snowtrooper, Darth Revan, and Tusken Raider (up until last week).  I figured Jaina would be one of those.

I saw tons of Zuvios and Jyns at Toys R Us. All of the sudden, in the back of the peg, I saw Rose and the Emperor.  Was hoping for Jaina but I was denied. I walked down the aisle and saw another pegfull of 6 inchers. There in the front was Jaina. Score!

I also found the exclusive Jedi Training Rey with base.








Oh yeah - found another Tusken Raider. Once again, at one of those overpriced mall toy stores.



Then, today, I decide to stop at Walmart. Haven't been to the local Walmart in ages. Kind of a pain to get to and I don't like the big crowds.

At first, it looked like your standard Last Jedi pegwarmers.  Then I walked down the aisle looking for other stuff, and lo and behold, it's the next wave of Last Jedi figures. Boom!














Based on the last wave of Rogue One figures, I thought these were online exclusives - didn't expect to find them in the store. Was pleasantly surprised.

Also found some new Super Articulated figures of the Tusken Raider and Ponda Baba - AKA Walrus Man. Didn't know these were coming.




Finally, picked up a Probe Droid - because I have a diorama idea in mind - and this 12 inch Hasbro Yoda. Because....Yoda.




I must say, I've had more fun going out to hunt recently. Think I will keep this up, though I do miss supporting smaller, awesome businesses like BBTS and Clark Toys.
