I practiced a little Chunky love tonight and got them out of their boxes and displayed.:wub:

They really are fantastic toys. There is something very pure about them. I love the simplicity. And they're about indestructible compared to the "better" toys out there.

Indestructible indeed! Pretty amazing for how they stand the test of time.

Not a toy purchase, but adopted a four legged furball one month ago.

Don't know much about her breed (maybe the following cat owners @Shizuka the Cat and @Lolicon can fill me in). I know is that she is at least 5 years old and she loves head and neck scratches that give on a regular bases. 

My aunt can't stand the cat hair that Coco leaves behind and is super paranoid about having animals in the house as she had to take care of a cat in her younger days.

Try this for the shedding: https://www.amazon.com/Furminator-Cats-Undercoat-Deshedding-Tool/dp/B07MZKPTJF

My dad has a cat that sheds severely year round, so bad he couldn’t groom himself due to the hairballs. Severely reduced shedding and actually grooms himself if he gets brushed with that thing twice a week.

Reminds me of a British short hair or a scottish fold. But they’re usually solid gray I think.   I was looking into “designer” cats for a while but when I saw the price tag I’d rather save for my next German shepherd.

Congrats to all your purchases everyone!

Are these all 1/24 scale? Nice collection there. I only have a 1989 1/18 scale, but i haven't found a 1:18 scale Animated batmobile to keep it company.

Seems to be a forced perspective shot but something looks off about the pic.  Still a very good attempt though.  The 2 in the back are 1/6 scale, the 3 in the middle are 1/12 scale, and the one in the front is 1/18 scale.

There’s a larger selection of Batmobiles in 1/24 scale that come with figurines.  There’s also a larger selection of Batmobiles and Bat vehicles in 1/50 scale.  

I really hope someday a diecast 1/18 scale BTAS Batmobile gets made.

Nice! I picked up a couple of classic He-Man from Super 7 when I was in San Diego 2 years ago.

Cool! All the previous releases were tempting to me but I don’t want to deal with the hassle and cost of getting them. I was really happy just collecting the MCX since they are cheap and don’t take much space but being able to grab these was a treat.

Classic.  When I was a kid I never owned anything from Masters of the Universe, Thundercats, Silverhawks, C.O.P.S., M.A.S.K., and some others.  There were just too many cool 80’s toys to have them all.

Going back to Batmobiles, I just bought another 1/50 scale 1989 Batmobile for pretty much retail price.  I need to get another 1940 Batmobile to add to my loose 1/50 scale collection.

I don’t buy figures o don’t care about too often but the frustration of Target’s website trying to get the other figures I wanted drove me to get this just because it was the only one I could get.

It’s not bad and I like the torso articulation that is a lot like the original ARAH figures but I just don’t care about the character and even less so for this version that looks nothing like the character it’s supposed to be.

@Rogueload dropped by today with the X-9 he built for me (thanks!!!!) and picked up a VF-0A w/ Ghost I sourced for him. So, the Plus shelves (Yeah, I know the Advanced is Frontier) got a little re-organizing. Pretty good for a quick first draft. I'm going to need to spend some time staring at it before I figure out what I really want to do.

Mission accomplished!

Not happy with the pic but wanted to share something quick. The figure is all the shiz! Lives up to the hype and definitely a great figure. I still put Deluxe Snake Eyes above it but it's tough to beat Snake Eyes. My only criticism is the dumb pegs in the guns that also don't fit well in the holes in the back like Snake Eyes' backpack but at least I can hide them by using them as side grips. Also kinda wish the chest insignia was a removable part and it came in white and red so I can make a more proper officer. I need more of these but it seems pretty hopeless.
