I really want Kotobukiya or Revoltech to make a GLaDOS, with exchangeable cores. I'd have to find stuff to sell to get it, but it'd be so worth it.

Thank you and fuck you, Takara.

This new Convoy figure is the shit. However, I'm not a fan of re-releases, even if they are incredible upgrades like this one. I don't think you will get my monies this time.

Why do you dislike re-releases?

Do you like buying the same thing over and over again? I have better ways to spend my hard-earned money.

I don't like buying the exact same thing over and over... so I just don't do it. I don't get worked up over the existence of a rerelease though. In fact, sometimes it's nice to have things re-released if I missed out on the first time, or misplaced/broke/sold the thing to begin with long ago.

I'm not worked up. I'm just annoyed that Takara chooses to re-release the same character, albeit with a much nicer mold and design, for the seventh time. A Soundwave or Galvatron Masterpiece figure would've been much more well received, not just by me, but by fans and collectors everywhere.

Those crappy army men and one of those fisher price buildings that had 3 levels and a Ramp. Many good men died taking that position from those Tan bastards.

I might have just bought one of these. It's a Toys R Us exclusive. Looks pretty rad, you get one of the sweet as ring replicas that's adult size and Ryan Renolds is dreamy. I think I'm going to fake my fiancé out during the wedding by trying to replace my wedding ring with this ring.

So, my son's birthday was Saturday, and one of his presents looked strangely familiar...

Tempted to get another on the cheap, repaint it and add the side hoses.

Mcfarlane Metal Gear Ray. The one that you had to buy all the other shitty looking figures to acquire all the pieces to make it.

Sadly mine took to many Nikita's, its obliterated.

I also have the Mcfarlane Metal Gear Solid figures all seald and packed away for now
I have them all except one or two variants.

At least another 10,000 yen. But she can do sexy time, so it pays for itself!

You are too old for that toy.

It says Ages 3+ but it should say Ages 3-5.

Aside: I own 9 Stitch toys. Love me some Stitch. The talking one's the best...

Not exactly a toy, but this is pretty cool. Too bad I'm not gonna drop $6,500 on an non- saltwater aquarium. Or an aquarium, period.

Image

This very innovative and rare aquarium is offered in three colors. The tables are produced in cherry, black or carbon fiber and they conceal the rare filtration and lighting components. Fish swim freely throughout the entire aquarium. Designed for tropical freshwater fish. The table is optional. Filters and all equipment still included if purchased without table.

Your aquarium includes silk plants, 3 lights, filters, air pumps and cleaning equipment. The 3 rare lights are doughnut shaped and are placed underneath the black central hoods. They include programmable timer plugs which allow you to set when the lights turn on and off.

Did I not post the new Lego Super Heroes range here?

Despite the look of that, it is both DC and Marvel - here's some of the prototypes:
