I got the Battle Of Hoth Lego Star wars set on Thursday from Toys'R'Us while it had 20% off. The main reason for that particular set was because I wanted the Snow speeder.
I also got a Lego Star Wars Storm trooper/Dark trooper army set.

it took me awhile, but i finally found 4" Panthro.. but i pay a full price for him...

oh well, it still save me quite alot, the whole team just cost me 100 bucks (around 34USD) as oppose to 300 bucks (around 100 USD) if i get it a few years back. Thundercats, Ho!

PS: if anyone know how to fix Lion-O sword, please let me know.. why the hell do they use soft rubber for a sword, when i was a kid, we have solid plastic sword for He-Man..

Not so much. The axe was more bendy than the sword, but still very soft plastic.

The effect's more noticeable these days because of the way the packaging is formed around the figure more (partly to limit opportunities for shoplifters) -- the additional heat and pressure can cause warping even of quite thick parts.

It's a damn shame the new show seems to have been cancelled.

I got Lego Star Wars 7961 Darth Maul's Sith Infiltrator in the mail on Wednesday, the box is a little thinner than I remember, which is good because it's going to be in storage for a while yet.

I recently bought set 75001 The Old Republic Battle Pack new locally and had two other sets come in the mail from eBay, those two being: set 9500 Sith Fury-Class Interceptor also sealed and set 4479 TIE Bomber, although I may be missing a few pieces from that one. All in all a good haul.

Okay, last Sunday I got the Lego Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 79100 Kraang Lab Escape, on Tuesday I got Star Wars set 6206 Tie Interceptor in the mail, which I need to dust down, and earlier today I picked up set 9493 X-Wing Star fighter from a local eBay member and sets 9489 Endor Rebel Trooper & 9488 Imperial Trooper and Elite Clone Trooper & Commando Droid Battle Packs.

On Tuesday, my order for a Lego Star Wars 8015 Tie Advanced from eBay arrived although it seems a bit loose just behind the cockpit and Darth Vader is missing his helmet and lightsaber, I also bought a Kre-O Transformers Micro-Changer Hook and I picked up a unopened box of Lego Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 79103 Turtle Lair Attack.

@HeavyArms: It would appear you're the only one buying new non-TF stuff! And it also would appear that I should by stock in Lego!

Thinking of getting the Movie Masters Superman from Man of Steel. Trouble is he's $16 right now. Seems pricey to me for just a semi-articulate new Supes.

Ha ha. Might actually be a good idea.

On topic, I got a Lego Clark Kent with his shirt ripped open showing the S underneath with a Lego DVD and a Angry Birds Star Wars Storm trooper pig plushie that was on clearance.

I forgot to post it, but a couple weeks ago I picked up the new Batman Unlimited Penguin, with the blue jacket and new head sculpt based on the 80s Super Powers toy. He appeals to me way more than the DCUC or Arkham City Penguin toys that I've seen, which play up the character's ugliness rather than his sheer ridiculousness.

He does look pretty cool, reduced articulation aside. But if he's anything like the Batman Movie Masters he won't fit in very well with the more traditional Mattel DC figures -- they're done to scale, but most of the figures are in scale with giant fantasy comic characters while the Movie Master is in scale with a normal man in a Batsuit, so he looks pretty tiny.

A small Keldeo that came in a Pokemon dvd box set that I bought a couple of weeks ago, two packages came in on Monday, one containing Lego Star Wars Palpatine's Arrest complete but without the box, the other containing Lego Star wars Z-95 Headhunter and Lego Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shellraiser Street Chase, both unopened.
On Tuesday, from France a ratty looking box arrived with a Lego AT-ST and Arc-170 Star fighter, although not complete but with some pieces replaced.
And on Wednesday, during a sale I picked up Lego AT-RT and TMNT Stealth Shell In Pursuit and Shredder's Dragon Bike and an Eaglemoss 2nd issue Collectible Batmobile from the Adam West live-action show.

While taking advantage of a month long series of mid year sales, I bought a Lego Legends Of Chima set 70006 Cragger's Command Ship. Also, off eBay, I bought a limited edition Lego Jor-El from the DC Super Heroes sub-line.

Since they are on sale, I bought two of the Lego DC Super Heroes Superman sets: Black Zero Escape (76009) and Battle Of Smallville (76003).
