    After a random visit to my local CVS, I came across these gems. A Jazware Fred Flintstone and Dino. Pretty good find. Now I have some figures to put in my replica Flintstone car that my late dad built for me back in the mid 1990's. :)

    Those look cool! I didn't even know that those existed or that CVS carried Flintstones toys of any kind.

    Yeah, the box shows a whole little line of Hanna-Barbara related toys from Flintstones to Jetsons to Captain Caveman and so on. I saw a couple of them at Toys R. Us back in 2012 but were a bit more expensive back then. Got them both for $7.99. I hope they have some more Flintstones characters to fill up my cave coup. :cool:

    Can't wait for these Firefly Legacy figues to be released.

    Anyone know an approximate date? The Forbidden Planet website says July, but from waiting for the Game of Thrones phase 2 figues I never trust their dates.
    I'd definitely want a Mal and Kaylee

    Awesome Possum must be made aware of these if he isn't already. The Jewel Signal has been activated.

    Hopefully this isn't a "sexed up" prototype intended to whet collectors' appetites and the final retail version will actually look this good. After years of experience with Hasbro promotional images and convention/toy fair display copies of figures you learn to wait for the final retail product before you know if it'll be this awesome or not.

    I received some items for my doll collection this week. I need to dress dolls and take pictures.

    A couple of collectors have just found Wave 8 of the 6" Black Series line (Emperor Palpatine, Luke in Stormtrooper Disguise, Clone Trooper Captain and a carry-forward of the Stormtrooper Han from Wave 7) at brick-and-mortar retail.

    So far I haven't seen any characters past Wave 7 and those two figures were at my friend's local toy shop.

    I am not sure if anyone here would have any interest in this, but I did help with the design of this figure. The circular saw hand is one that I created for this charity project. an additional variant figure is being sold on ebay

    A few more people are finding Wave 7 of the 3.75" Black Series line, mostly at Toys "R" Us since Target at best seems to get just one or a few random figures at a time and they're not always the newest ones. Keep your eyes peeled if you want these, and hopefully you can score them at a store that still charges just $9.99 for a Black Series figure and has yet to implement a price hike on the 3.75" line.

    I haven't done a Shelf Avengers thing in a while, but here's a little thing I did tonight. This truck is actually a birdfeeder, and it will be used as such after I'm done using it as a prop. :p

    Old Clint Barton had a farm...

    Weather permitting, Clint, Tasha, and a few friends are going to have a little garden adventure this week.
