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.
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.
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*
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*
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*
If anyone has any questions or comments about the toys in this posting, please feel free to drop us an e-mail at email@example.com
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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 email@example.com
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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*
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*
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 email@example.com
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*
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Chicks Love the Cars.

Like most things, restoration is usually a hands on job, but it never hurts to have a guide to help you through it.

This weekend in Camp Jordan in East Ridge, TN is a coin show. Our friend Steve "The Coin Guy" from the front of the Flea Market (across from the main entrance up front) will be set up there. If you are looking for coins or know someone who is, send them by to check out what they have. I think it will start Friday and last till Sunday afternoon.
