Star Wars - The Force Awakens - 6 inch Shampoo Bottle Figures

So the 12 inch Star Wars Hasbro figures affectionately earned the nickname "shampoo bottles" because of their likeness to a tall, round shampoo bottle. The sculpting was kind of plain.

Sculpting has come a long way since the early days, but collectors still refer to them as the Shampoo Bottle line. I had heard rumors awhile ago that there were 6 inch versions of these figures. I finally came across a few at Walgreens. All of these were from The Force Awakens - including Rey, First Order Trooper, Captain Phasma, and C3PO - although C3PO doesn't have his red arm. And for what it's worth - none of the packaging actually says Force Awakens.

Once Upon a Time - Emma Swan and Evil Queen

Impulse buy. Have never watched this show. Thought the figures were cool. From Once Upon a Time, it's Emma Swan and the Evil Queen.

Monster High Glam Ghoul Band from MegaBloks

Though my daughter no longer has much interest in Monster High or building block toys, I still pick up the occasional MegaBloks Monster High set for a rainy day. Comes in handy when she says she's bored. So this is a cool set with eight mini-figures. Even though these seem to be on clearance, MegaBloks still continues to put out some nice sets.

Funko Stranger Things 3-packs

Funko hits another grand slam by giving us 3-3/4 inch figures from Stranger Things. If you haven't seen this show on Netflix, do it now.

When I first heard of everyone talking about it, I thought it was just a bunch of hype. I started watching it on my laptop during a business trip to France. I'll just say I didn't leave my hotel room for 10 hours that day. Sad I know - but I'm just saying.

So Funko released these two 3-packs, giving us the gang of kids and the demigorgon monster.

There's a new set that was also just released as a New York Comic Con exclusive, which can be purchased on Amazon. Glad they made the Eleven figure with her wig.

Boss Fight Studios Vitruvian HACKs- Fantasy Realm Series 1

Boss Fight Studios had one of the most successful action figure Kickstarter ever. Their Greek Warriors and Gorgon line had a fantastic run. They are now turning some of their attention to fantasy realms - with Elves, Orcs, and Humans.

This is the first set of four figures. Love the cavern fairie and elven archer. Looking forward to Series 2.

KISS - Dynasty Collection - Bif Bang Pow

It seems like I may have fallen off the face of the earth, but no, just working long hours and weekends at my job trying to launch a new customer facing system. I had no time for extra curriculars. Completely out of gas.

But I am back, hoping to get back into the groove.

This was one of those surprise finds at Toys R Us. Haven't been there in ages. The KISS figures from Bif Bang Pow were sitting there on the pegs.  Had to have them. Pretty cool. Need to open these up.

So put your favorite KISS 8 track in, turn up the sound, and Enjoy!

Who was your favorite?
