Might still be worth looking on eBay US for Chinese sellers with a few warehouse boxes of figures and parts -- I got a variety of MOTUC figures that way. Focused on the Horde, the Rebellion and the Snakemen for the most part, with some Powers of Grayskull, New Adventures and traditional MOTU mixed in. Not completist, but got the ones I was after and some fillers, and only really paid way over the odds for Shadow Weaver. There still seem to be people parting out collections too, if you're okay with loose and don't necessarily have to have every accessory.

Cheers for the reminder about Multi-Bot, skipped him first time around due to MISB prices but scored a loose one the other day for sixteen fifty inc. Not 100% complete, but all of the parts and accs for the normal display option.

The Bandai space marine -- https://storage.googleapis.com/spikeybi ... rine-1.jpg / https://spikeybits.com/2020/05/bandai-p ... irmed.html

Which is at least 50% marked up on reasonable price, based on design and build quality (so like virtually everything else 40K-related). Nice of Geedubs to get them out quickly without additional shipping charges for those of us who'd set the order to deliver to a local store last year though.

Thoroughly adjustable as long as you don't mind popping bits back on and having a relatively limited number of poses the weight can hold. You're going to want to get it out of packaging because despite having a window it's packed in multiple layers. Being able to disassemble things fairly easily will help repainters.

The Primaris proportions do work well and look natural, I've got to admit. You can easily imagine the figure moving with the same kind of rapid lethality as the marines in the Astartes fan-series; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2bko5Gg ... n8qFcoENLO

Bottom line: nice if you managed to score one, and as a foray into high-end collectibles it's welcome, but the McFarlane one is probably going to be just as good for most people at a fraction of the price.

Playmobil Back to the Future DeLorean - I've never intentionally bought Playmobil before, though I did pick up some skeleton figures at a thrift shop that I now know are Playmobil. I've seen Playmobil compared to LEGO and don't really get it. I guess the PM figs look like large LEGO minifigs.

The box says 64 pieces, but that's a bit misleading. Many of those are accessories for Doc and Marty, like a skateboard, suitcase full of plutonium, and remote. The DeLorean is mostly one piece, just add the wheels, vents, and tubing that goes around the sides.

Some parts don't attach permanently, like the hook used to grab the line and the plutonium canisters that fit in the back. My only complaint is that there's no Mr. Fusion. It could've fit in place of the Plutonium, and would've completed the end-of-BttF/BttF II look achieved with the folding down wheels. I'd much rather have that than Marty's video camera or Doc's tool pouch.

Figure Complex Amazing Yamaguchi Powered by Revoltech Series #15 Harley Quinn: -wheeze- I’ve never ordered one of these types of figures before. The closest was a Suicide Squad Harley KO that’s a really nice hyperposable figure... but high heeled Adidas’ make for really poor balance. This one came with a stand and is really great. Different hands, different faces, you can even move the eyes around for different poses and looks. Not entirely sold on the Revoltech joints, though. I remember hearing that they’re all ratchet joints, but these are all friction.

Lego Speed Champions! How did I not know this line existed?

My son bought the 75891 Chevy Camaro (like a stock car), which I thought was rather solid and great looking. So in order to race him, I picked up the 75890 Ferrari F40. Both cars are really slick, and fun to build. To increase our garage, we got the 75893 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon vs 1970 Dodge Charger R/T. That set is great and comes with a small drag strip light set that has a fantastic mechanism to move the lights. Both cars are really unique and I love the boxy look of the 1970 and the supercharger in the hood. There's some smart building in there to nail the front grill as well. On order we also have the 75892 McLaren Senna, which I can't wait to arrive.

Overall, these cars are great and a great value for the price.
