Hey, Mr. Postman!

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!


  1. Nice haul! Loving the B and the B stuff all over again - those two are great choices - I've been tempted by that Knight Batman in the past, and I don't recall seeing the Scuba Batman but any version of Batman with an additional Bat helmet is tops in my book!

    I have a couple upcoming posts, including my Blue Beetle figure all set for a post on Monday!

  2. Oh I LOVE that blue beetle beetle figure. Anything with a bubble top just seduces me. I am so weak. Those Brave and the Brave figures looked great except for those leg and arm holes. Why did they do that?

    1. So you can plug in all the fun accessories and PLAY, Kal :)

  3. We have the powered Batmobile and the Mr Freeze version. My kid and I love to play demolition derby with em, pretty cool !
