Transformers Generations GDO Wheelie

I wasn't planning on getting any of the new Generations GDO figures. But then I bumped into a friend who managed to score a set from Toys R Us. He had a spare Wheelie which he offered me. I thought he looked pretty cool and so I got it.

The Dark Knight Rises Movie Masters Alfred Pennyworth

The Dark Knight Rises Movie Masters line has been out in stores for awhile now. Alfred has been peg warming along with Batman and Bane. I was waiting and hoping to get him at a discount. But with the movie opening soon, I thought to pick him up first just in case. And if you're wondering how Alfred is still on the pegs, each figure costs around USD34 here.

Blastaar rounds up the new figures of Marvel Universe wave 21. I also managed to find the variant. This would be only the second time I found a variant at retail.

Marvel Universe Jubilee

This new series has started showing up in more stores. I've almost gotten the whole set save for the Amazing Bagman. Poor Jubilee looks set to spend some time on the pegs, no one seems to want her. The poor paint application is one of the reasons why. I must have spent at least 5 minutes choosing one and I still wasn't happy with it. Out of convenience, I picked it up anyway.

Marvel Universe Professor X

A big thanks to a friend for helping me get this. Very surprised that this series got released. Series 1 is not even out yet. Hopefully we'll see that as well soon. Let's open this up and have a look.
