Super Gobots Spay-C
Picked up a nice loose example off of ebay. Spay-C is really nice. Shuttle mode is cool, robot mode is very swish and it has a very nice transformation. Very impressive

Well, the figure bug bit again, and I found Multiverse Rebirth Batman and The Atom (LoT) on clearance (?) at Target. These literally just came out, so I have no idea why the markdown, but I'll take it.

Even so, I'm disappointed. I don't know what I was really expecting. The sculpts are both very nice, and The Atom comes with a spare (non-helmeted) head and a tiny version of himself that's about 6" scaled to the figure. All-in-all, pretty neat. Batman comes with NOTHING. How does a character known for his gadgets come packed with nothing? That's just beyond me. The main issue with these is the articulation, as usual. It's a little more of a problem here, because the Atom can only bend his elbows, like, 30 degrees. And Batman's cape prohibits his arms from a lot of range. Ugh.

I would like to say I'm done with the Multiverse, but there appears to be some good figs on the way, with an updated articulation system. Needless to say, I've grown very tired of Mattel's refusal to change. In a wave where I may have thought about building The Rookie, I think I'll pass on the rest.

I'd almost completely forgotten about my birthday if my mom hadn't sent me a text message and then I found myself wondering, how should I treat myself? I decided to go to the city and check the toy store since, despite toy selections having shriveled down to nothing that interests me anymore, their discount section is full of really, really old toylines that have probably been sitting in a warehouse somewhere for years.

And what do I find?

These.

Soul of Chogokin GX-13R Dancouga.

It's kind of awkward that they've used the same designation as they used for the "real type" variant of the original release way back.

Snagged a Black Series Snowtrooper last week. Not sure why the showed up, as that wave never popped up around me when it was supposed to. Maybe it was a return or something? Target had most of the new BS wave - Finn, Poe, Leia - from The Last Jedi there, and randomly the Snowtrooper. ESB is my favorite flick of all time, so it's awesome to have him on the shelf. I'm a bit off-put by the tan-ness of the suit, as they always seemed much more white on screen... but I've read that the figure actually matches the real suit, and the white-ness in the movie was due to filters during filming. I guess kudos to Hasbro for doing their research? The only other issue is while this guys boasts the typical articulation system of BS/ML figures, the suit limits that significantly, and I found it difficult to get him to stand straight up. This may have been helped a bit by making some parts soft goods instead of rubber/plastic. Overall though, I'm pleased.

Lego Batman Movie 70916 The Batwing
Managed to score this for 40 off the RRP thanks to Black Friday nonsense at TRU so I'm feeling pretty pleased with this It's a good set and is a suitably bulky and heavy thing when finished (has about 1,000 pieces!). I like the swivelly engine pods and you can stand this up to mimic the Scuttler. There's a neat little buggy that drops out the back and it has the usual shooty things. I can see why this has dropped into the 100 bracket, given the size and part count, but it doesn't feel special enough to justify it and isn't as much fun as the Batmobile or Scuttler. The Harley Quinn figure in a tutu is nice and the cannon she has is nice wee build.

Made a trade on a FB page, ended up with a Black Series Chewbacca (6").

Nice figure, even though he can't easily hold his Bowcaster with both arms due to the molded fur hindering his arm range. Nicely sculpted figure though, and he looks great with the rest of my collection. I'm also pleased that he has some rather stout ankle joints to hold up his bulk. Looks really great next to Han, and he absolutely towers over Luke & Leia. For the most part, that really finished off the main cast of ANH for me, aside from the yet-to-be released Tarkin.
