No, I didn't get some new shoes from Zappos, though by all accounts they make a quality product- yes, I DID get some toys in the mail!
A couple weeks back after having purchased a Mattel Retro-Action Sinestro at Toys 'R Us, I stumbled upon a Sinestro/Green Lantern set from this series on eBay up for bid at a reasonable price! A couple folks were going back & forth, edging the price up bit by bit, but I sniped the set at the last few seconds for $41.00, shipping included! That's slightly better than if I'd bought them retail w/tax- not incredible, but pretty good considering how hard it is to find the Hal Jordan Green Lantern for around twenty bucks. As always, I had kept my TRU receipt, so I returned the other Sinestro. Victory is Mine!
ALSO... A couple weeks ago I won a mini-mate from the boys at The Articulated Monster podcast for sending in a listener question. James e-mailed a week after, saying his postage was inadequate, and that he would send it again...
The Articulated Monster a listen- I find it amusing/fun listening to the guys talk about toys, and sending in listener questions might win you a PRIZE!
And finally... I've heard a lot of cryin' about DC Comics giving the whole Universe a reboot- Good Grief! Like that hasn't happened before. Who cares?? What if it's great?? Why don't you take a minute to read my friend John's comparison of the situation to the book "Who Moved My Cheese" over at the The Batcave Toy Room. John, you're wonderful! That's the kind of attitude I like- a positive one! Change is often difficult, and people don't like it- it's inevitable & unavoidable however, so you try embracing it. Don't worry about it- look at this bitchin' new picture of Wonder Woman instead!
Have FUN With Your Life- You'll Live Longer!
