    This is what I have though the facial sculpt looks a lot better.

    For Playmates in the '90s that's actually a pretty decent facial sculpt and likeness of Joan Collins. They did a good job with her hair and hat. She looks pretty good for being designed and released during that time.

    I also got a Balok with puppet figure. It includes Kirk so I now have a Kirk figure the same scale as Edith. Now to see of those playmates trek figures will fit in my DST Back to the future Delorean. hehehe.

    My latest purchase- the new version of the mini Samantha doll from American Girls. The new minis are slightly taller, have solid plastic bodies, and softer hair than the originals.

    Old, new, holiday Samantha:

    Well, I am so glad I don't collect 6" or Star Wars. Now if we can just keep him away from the Marvel line.

    I did score a Dark Elf today from the Thor, The Dark World line for $8 at Big Lots.

    After waiting 5 years for it to come back, I finally got the World Peacekeepers Battle Command Post at Big Lots yesterday. This is how to make a cool playset.

    I picked up a Figuarts Mario and one of the accessory kits today. I am really happy with this. It's gorgeously sculpted, super articulated, and just about as perfect a version of everyone's favorite Italian plumber as you could ask for.

    ^Barnes and Noble has Mario (with coin, ? Block, and Mushroom) for $25 and the accessory set (Goomba, Coin, ? Block, 2 Blocks, and the base) for $20. They also had the other one that has another Goomba, pipes, koopa shell, and alternate hands.

    Well I spoke to soon. I went into the Rite-Aid to pickup a prescription this afternoon and they had three 6-inch Black Series figures on the toy shelf. THREE! This was the first time I have actually seen the figures in the wild over here in Redneck-Murderville. They had Han Solo, Bespin Luke, and a Stormtropper, each with an asking price of $16. I grabbed the Stormtropper. The box was a little damaged but I didn't care. It was $16! :rommie:

    Thank you. I had a wonderful experience at a Barns and Nobel store once. It's how I discovered the lovely Starbase Columbus store here in Ohio. :bolian:

    Finally scored a Black Series 3.75" Snowtrooper Commander at a local Walmart! I don't know where all the other Snowtrooper Commanders have been because I've found almost every other figure in both Waves 4 and 5 before stumbling upon this guy, but at least they finally had one of him on the pegs. He's a pretty impressive trooper and just different and unique enough compared to previous Snowtrooper figures that he stands out. I like him a lot. Solid sculpt and paint apps.

    Fury is thinking "That is a stupid-ass hat".

    Hawkeye wonders if he gets more lines this time.

    Here's a little teaser of what's to come. It's that time of year...when Captain Kirk has to renew his Starship Insurance in... Star Trek: Off Duty. (The Squire of Geico.)
