As a kid, I never had the Snake Face action figure. I can’t say I have an attachment to the character, but I always wanted it.
When Hasbro announced Fall of Cybertron Grimlock at SDCC ’12, he was an automatic must-have. You see, much like Mel Gibson’s paranoid character in the film, Conspiracy Theory was brainwashed to buy a copy of Catcher in the Rye whenever he sees the book, I am programmed to get my hands on Grimlock whenever a new one comes out. When it comes to fan-favorite characters, few Transformers can compete with him. His popularity is a no-brainer; three words: giant, robot, dinosaur.

Ironhide is no stranger to sharing molds, but more often than not it’s with his fellow Autobot, Ratchet! Ironhide was originally solicited as part of this wave, and its obvious in the details, drawing on elements of Generation 1 and the live-action film, but for this U.S. release Sergeant Kup took his place.
Outlandish Mini Figure Guys (OMFG!) is a line of mini figures inspired by M.U.S.C.L.E. Men and Monster in my Pocket. The project is essentially a love letter to the classic mini figures kids grew up with in the ‘80s.
Procrustus is the third giant-sized figure in Masters of the Universe Classics, with Tytus and Megator preceding him. When Procrustus was first revealed I was not very excited. I had never heard of the character and the thought of a giant-sized stone dude was not very appealing. Once bloggers shed a little more light on the character and his packaging bio was released I warmed up to him a bit more.
Whilst out doing some very last-minute Christmas shopping on Christmas Eve, I happened to stumble upon some Series 8 Minifigures at Mal-Wart. I’ve been pining to get this guy, but I just haven’t had the time or wherewithal to actually go look. He’s on a very, very short list of figures I wanted from Series 8, and being that it was Christmas thought it was appropriate!
Here we are, nearly the middle of December. A couple weeks ago I posted a blog about Christmas fairs. Well, now its two weeks later and the Fair/Bazaar Tour is just about over, where does the time go? The last of the fairs were this weekend, but it certainly has been a blast. I am looking forward to not having to get up early on Saturday mornings to beat the rush!
