I'm looking for toys on a regular basis, and while I do okay on the street level, there are some things I find on the internet that I either can't find, missed the initial release of, or get a better deal on used. It's only been a month since the last time I received toys in the mail, and since then there has been no shortage of fun stuff to buy locally, but what can I say- I love toys :D
*Power Attack Total Destruction Batmobile
Like I said in my last post, I liked the aesthetics of the Blast Lane Batmobile, but returned it as I felt it was lacking any real action features. I scored this Total Destruction Batmobile for about $14.00 w/free shipping from an Amazon seller, six dollars less than the Blast Lane version, and with a better cockpit and two action features. Justice is mine!
*Brave & The Bold Scuba Batman and Stealth Strike Knight Battle Batman
How many versions of the Brave & The Bold Batman do you need? Apparently two more :D Mattel moved away from the B&TB title after the animated show was cancelled, and released a few more figures as the Stealth Strike series. There was another Scuba Batman released in the Stealth Strike series alongside this Knight Battle Batman, but I wanted the original B&TB Scuba Bats. These were about fifteen bucks combined w/free shipping- got the Knight Battle for about four dollars less than original retail, and Scuba Bats for about three bucks more than original retail, so I came out okay since there was no shipping or tax.
*Brave & The Bold Blue Beetle w/Cosmic Crawler
This was hard to find used in good condition, and while I didn't get a stellar deal on him, it was better than the $40.00 price tag on all the boxed ones I saw. I paid about twenty-four bucks for him, shipping included, which I can live with considering how great a toy it is. I like Ted Kord as Blue Beetle, but I LOVE the Jaimie Reyes Blue Beetle! Part of the appeal of the Batman: The Brave & The Bold show was the supporting cast, Jaimie being one of my favorites. You will be seeing more of the Cosmic Crawler soon!
More Later- Make It FUN!
