Toy Topic: The Old Switcheroo

Hello Gang! Yesterday I was doing my Toy Run. Right now I'm taking inventory of what Rite Aids have Halo Reach figures, which ones and how much.

So I go into Target, see the Chitauri and buy another Halo Avatar (The Elite) and I see what I've seen for a few months now, but haven't bothered to address.

On Sunday I went to Target and saw this..

The whole Marvel Legends shelf was full of new Series 2 stuff. And a few days later on Wednesday I see this...

The Chitauri Have Landed!!

I saw these at Toys R Us and Target. It looks like the case includes an Iron Man with Captain America's jet pack. But here are some pics!

The Avengers figures have been more miss than hit. And this figure show us the reasons why...

No elbow joints

No knee joints..
Expect to find him on clearance around christmas. Ho Ho Ho! Maybe then I'll buy him...

Halo Reach Sale at K-Mart

Guten Morgen! I went looking for a UNSC Marine today to see if I could blow dry his helmet off.

I was going to K-mart to get a sonic poster and I decided to scan the only Jun figure they had. (This is the store on 34th street in Manhattan)

And guess what happened....IT SCANNED FOR $6.99!!!!

I don't know if this is a sale. Or if its clearance, but this is great for my custom ideas.
So go out there and buy them up! It's the cheapest price ever!

I went to the K-Mart on Metropolitan Ave, but they had 1 Kat and 1 Jun for $12.99 each. Which is strange because when K-Mart had it's clearance sale on the Halo Reach 2 packs. This store was the only one that didn't have the sale. WTH?

Today (08-30-12) I'm gonna check the 2 K-Marts in the Bronx. Wish me luck!

Halo: The Art Of Building Worlds Book Review

Last Friday I went to my brothers house to help him take care of my niece while he recovered from knee surgery. He lent me this Halo book, which I took to work and looked at.

After being harassed by my brothers Pug, Shannon.

I'm not a big fan of movie or video game art books. Most of them focus on landscapes and some technical detail like ships and weapons. But I like Halo and wanted to see what this book had in store for me.

Collection Intervention's Advice For Collecting.

If you're one of the hip crowd of YouTubers you might know who Sean Long is. Well he's going to be featured on an episode of "Collection Intervention", which I think may be a bad thing.

15 minutes of fame? Check.
Being on a show like Hoarders? Un Check. LOL

Anyway here are some tips on collecting from the Host of the show.

Here's my 2 cents on her advice. She says..

She-Hulk and Punisher Hit New York!

I found these in the Forbidden Planet store located in New York!

They were $14.99 each but I didn't buy them. These were the only new ones they had on the shelves. It must be part of a revision case. The M.O.D.O.K. sayings on the back are funny, but I'm gonna wait untill these hit Target.

Save on action figures at Kmart, Rite Aid and Toys R Us!

I feel guilty telling you guys this, because it never occurred to me that you can save money on action figures like I have.
Way back in December one of my co-workers made me aware of Rite-Aid's Wellness + card. When I used to work at Duane Reade I was aware of  those little discount cards that stores like to offer you. I never gave the Rite-Aid store's card a chance.
Until I was told that after you reach 1000 points you get 20% off the whole store!!

Halo Avatars Series 1 Numbering

There is a method to the madness!!! On the bottonm of each Halo Avatars figure there is a number. It's usually next to a circle on the base. Match these up and limit your chances of failure.

The only other problem you might encounter is some jackass stealing these figures!

Mega Bloks Sale at Toys R Us

If you are getting into Halo Mega Bloks, now is the perfect time!

Also keep an eye out at your local targets for clearanced kits. So far I've seen the falcon for 32, EVA last stand and brute prowler for 13!
