Prometheus exclusive.

Here is a nice two pack exclusive from Toys R Us.  In this Prometheus pack you get the Trilobite vs. the Battle Damaged Engineer.  I don't know how much this one runs but if you want it, it may be short supply.


Did anyone see an awesome episode of Arrow last night?  If not, you missed something good.  Deadshot returned and he was even better the second time around.  If you caught the next episode preview,the you may not know the next new instalment will not air until March 20th, and when it does, the Huntress will make her return.  If I wasn't mistaken, I know that the character has been mentioned (as Anatoli Knyazev), but I think that big Russian guy Oliver took out at the start of the show was the K.G. Beast.  If anyone knows for sure, let me know.  I didn't catch the guy's name.

Marvel Select Venom

The new Marvel Select Venom is now out, and I can tell you it has lots of extras to make any collector fall in love with this one.  It has different heads so that you can go from the 90's look all the way back to the classic MaFarland style.  If you would like to add this one to your collection, The Comic Hound in East Ridge, TN has it stock, as of this posting, but I am sure that some FYE stores and other comic shops close to you should have it in, or will be getting it.

Information on toy collecting.

I found this neat article on Ezinearticles on how to protect your toy collection.  This is good for those who have been collectors for a while, and those who want to start collecting.  It always help to get information on where to start.

Other toys in stock for 3/2/2013

We got in several toys that don't have a category, or that so few were gained that I am just going to mix them all under basic toys.

More Dragon Heart figures are in stock from the past weekend.  Each of these figures are $5 each.  I wished we could get in the dragons from the film, but the basic figures are loved by the kids who want something affordable that has lots of weapons. *Draco's real name was never mentioned in the movie*

This picture doesn't do justice to the large bag of Lincoln Logs we have in stock.  This big bag sales for $10, and I am sure it will give the kids hours of fun. *Lincoln Logs were the creation of John Lloyd Wright, the son of famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright.*

 In a mixed collection of new toys we got in, more Lord of the Rings figures came in.  Each of these type of toys are $15 each and are great quality.  They are fully detailed, and both kids and collectors love them, even before the Hobbit came out. *Liv Tyler's character had less of a role in the books than she did in the films*

For the kids who love Disney's Cars, we got in this plush Towmater.  He sales for $5, and I will tell you now that if you think your little one would like to have this doll, you better come by early Saturday, Mater sales fast. *Doc in the movie is a Hudson Hornet*

The kids who love the Loony Toons still get some of our Space Jam movie toys, so this weekend we made sure to get a few more.  Each of these toys are $5 each.  Most of these are 2 packs that come with a Michael Jordan or a character from the movie and one of the Loony Toons *On the Space Jam DVD cover, Yosemite Sam is NOT shown*

In the collections we got more basic Star Trek toys ($5 each) from the Playmates toys line from the 90's.  I know BBC America is airing the Next Generation shows again, and the kids are being exposed to it *Tim Russ and Wesley Snipes were contenders for the role of Geordi LaForge*

In some of the loose items we got in, we did end up with classic TMNT toys from the original line.  Most are $3, but the Donatello is $5.  With the success of the current cartoon, the kids don't let us hold on these toys long.  *Playmates Toys began making TMNT toys since 1988*

Since the kids have been buying these old VR Trooper toys at $5 each, we got in a few more.  This line was put out by Bandi toys and the production company Saban who also make the Power Ranger line of toys and TV shows.  *The show lasted from September 3rd 1994 to January 21st 1996 and made 92 episodes*

Star Wars in stock for the weekend of 3/2/2013

I wished I had got more pictures of the Star Wars toys that we got in stock, but we were running short on time.

 We got in a lot of our basic figures that are priced from $5-$8 each this weekend.  In all I think we got in 20 of the basic figures.  Also in the collection we did get one hologram figure.  The holograms usually are ones that collectors buy and we have the one we got priced at $15 *originally, Luke Skywalker was going to be named Luke Starkiller*

If you have any questions about the toys in this post or any comments that you have, feel free to drop me an e-mail at

Transformers in stock for the weekend of 3/2/2013

Another toy line that is well loved by kids and collectors that came in this week is the Transformers line.

 For the kids we got in some more movie style Transformers toys.  The small toys go for $5 each, while the larger ones go from $10-15 each.  These are cheap enough for the kids to enjoy and afford, so these often move fast. *"Transformers" was the first move to film near and around the Pentagon after 9/11*

 For the collectors, we got in the 25th anniversary Optimus Prime($90) and Soundwave($40). Soundwave is a Toys R Us exclusive piece since you can't see the sticker on the front.  I figured a pic of the open window would give more detail than a closed box would.  If anyone is wondering about the prices, we know each should go for more, but the previous owner had them out of the box (I have no idea as to why), also if anyone wants both pieces we will cut you a deal. *Season 1 of the original cartoon series aired from September-December of 1984*

If you want to know what type of deal we will make you on the two anniversary toys, or questions on anything in this post, drop me an e-mail at

G.I Joe toys in stock for the weekend of 3/2/2013

We got in Joes form a few older sets this weekend that will be out for sale this coming Saturday.

 The G.I. Joe vs. Cobra packs go fast since they are usually marked at $5 each.  We also got more of the blue boxed two packs that have classic 80's style figures in the line up.  The classic remakes go for $10 each.  *The original "A Real American Hero" line lasted from 1982-1994*

Due to the time restraint, I didn't get to take a picture of every Joe item we got in this week.  Behind the blue retro toy pack are some more 25th anniversary style two packs that run $20 each. *This type of G.I. Joe turned 25 years old in 2007*

As always, if you see anything in this post that you want to know more about, please feel free to send us an e-mail at

Marvel toys in stock for the weekend of 3/2/2013

The Marvel figures that we got in stock this weekend are mainly from the 90's toy lines, tho we did get in a few from other series.

More toys from the 90's Ghost Rider line are in stock.  Each toy in this line had something that would glow in the dark.  This line was the first time ToyBiz put Marvel's demonic hero in toy form.  In the picture (right) you can see where we got in the basic toys and the ripcord cycles. In the image is the character Vengeance (on bike). Each figure runs from $5-$10 each.*Vengeance first appeared in Ghost Rider #21 vol. 2*

In addition to the 90's Ghost Rider line, we got in a few more Movie Ghost Rider toys and some Generation X figures.  Each of these are $5-$10 each and are made by ToyBiz toys. *Generation X also had it's own film as a made-for-TV film which aired on FOX on February 20, 1996The movie had the White Queen, Banshee, Jubilee, Mondo, and Skin and a few characters made just for the film in the line up*

 The collection did have more 90's X-men, and some 90's Fantastic Four cartoon toys.  We got in a few members of the Inhumans, and some villains as well. The prices of these toys range from $5-$10 each *The 1994 Fantastic Four Cartoon was the third animated series based on the Super Human team*

One of the later Spider-Man lines by ToyBiz toys, called the Sneak Attack series, gave the collectors the first ever Silver Sable figure.  This weekend, we got one of these toys in stock.  Our price is $10 for her.  We don't see many of these. *Silver Sable made her first appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man #265 in June of 1985*

We also got in a few more toys from the 2000 X-Men movie line.  Each of these figures are from ToyBiz, and we sale them at $10 each.  *When casting for the film, Bryan Singer's first choice to play Wolverine/Logan was the actor Russell Crowe*

If you see anything that you may have questions or comments on in the Marvel toys we will have in stock this weekend, feel free to shoot us an e-mail at

Hot Wheels in Stock for the weekend of 3/2/2013

This weekend we got in another small collection of Hot Wheels and other cars in this weekend.

We got in a small care case that is made to look like a tire. this is a great item for the kids who like to take a few cars with them on trips to play with.  *Since 1968, more than 4 billion Hot Wheels® cars have been produced*

Not all of the cars we got were for our $1 table.  Some are a bit more collectible and run $3-$5 each.  I took photos of two of the rows we brought in (we did get more, but only took a couple of shots due to time issues).  With what we got in, more cars were put on our turntable rack. *Since 1968, more than 800 models and 11,000 variations of Hot Wheels® cars have been created*

As usual, when we buy a Hot Wheels collection, we get in a lot of our $1 table cars.  With a rough estimate, I would say we got in 50-70 new cars on the table.  *Placed front-to-rear, all Hot Wheelsâ vehicles produced in the last 40 years would circle the Earth more than four  times*

Part of the collection was Hot Wheels big rigs.  One of the ones we got in even is a McDonalds transport truck with the logo and Big Mac pictured on the trailer. These run $5 each. *Placed front-to-rear, all Hot Wheelsâ vehicles produced in the last 40 years would circle the Earth more than four  times*

With us having time issues, I couldn't take pics of all the Hot Wheels we got in this weekend, but if you have questions or comments about what we have in feel free to e-mail us at

New DC toys in stock for the weekend of 3/2/2013

We got in several new DC toys this weekend from collections we bought that day. 

If you are a Bat-Man fan, you may like the camouflage version of the Tumbler from the last Bat-Man movie trilogy. This a bit bigger scale than most of the Hot Wheel toys, and we are offering it for $5.  If you want to see Specifications on Bat-Man's Tumbler, go check out Chicks Love the Cars.

This past weekend, we also got in more DC Direct toys.  We did get in a few heroes, but the majority of what we got in were villains. These toys are $10-$20 each.  Here is a small fact for comic fans *The first supervillain ever to actively battle a superhero on a recurring basis was the Ultra-Humanite, who frequently fought Superman during the Golden Age, and first appeared in Action Comics #13.*

In the DC Universe toys, we got in another Eclipso.  For those who don't know of him, Eclipso made his first appearance in House of Secrets #61 back in August 1963.  Originally he was created to be a generic villain, but was later recreated an entity of pure evil. 

More of the bigger scale Green Lantern Movie toys came in this week.  Pictured is Tomar-Re, the bird like lantern and friend to Hal Jordan. Tomar-Re made his debut in Green Lantern #6 of May-June of 1961.

DBZ from Toy Show 2013

This was the display from the Tamashii Nations booth at the Fair.  The display is different poses of the same Goku and Vageta figures.  Could this mean that new DBZ figures are on the way?  It would only make sense with the franchise being aired on a hand full of networks and the kids and adults alike are still in love with the series.

Ghostbutster's Firehouse

I know I have already shown some of the Ghost Busters goodies from the 2013 Toy Show, but I just came across the Diamond Select Toys Fire House.  It seems that not much was said on this item since by the time of the fair, only a photo was available.  What was said makes this sound like a fun piece for any Ghost Busters collection.  The Firehouse will light up.  I can't wait to see what it can do when it is in production.

Resident Evil from Toy Show 2013

The display for the Resident Evil 6 toys wasn't one of the biggest displays at this years Toy Show, but what was there looked pretty good.  None of the figures wer in the final paint, so they were still in the prototype stages.  Each figure is sure to be highly detailed, and come with accessories and a few various hands.

Con Nooga

Con Nooga starts tomorrow, and the link to their home page will be included at the end of this post.  They will have a sales room, and I will warn you, the prices at these things are high, but you some times find things that you don't see everyday.  Also they will have from Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, Jango and Boba Fett.  go to  for more details if this is something you are interested in.

Does your 80's Joe's need a Doctor?

G.I. Joe Price  Has a section that this link will take you to on how to fix your old joes to make them as good as they were back in the days when you played with them in the sand box.  Like most things, restoration is usually a hands on job, but it never hurts to have a guide to help you through it.

New Kingdom Hearts toys from the 2013 Toy Show

Some of the most popular video game brands are also getting new toys this year, such as Kingdom Hearts.  The characters you will see will be different versions of both Sora and Riku.  Both will be represented with high quality figures that will make the fans go wild.  Each will come with many different hands to put them in poses that will look they stepped out of the game series.
One of the most Exciting of the sets in this line will be both Sora and Riku in their Tron suits. Each of these figures come with different Key Blades.
