The "Looky What I Got!" Topic

Postby Dr Nightmare » Fri Sep 15, 2006 5:33 pm

Have you gotten a great deal or gone on an action figure shopping spree lately? Tell everyone about it here! :mrgreen:

I was wandering around Walmart and found all the Sentinel Series figures on sale for 6-7 bucks each, so naturally I bought one of each (except Omega since Mystique has the same Sentinel piece). Obviously I'm going to sell the Sentinel while keeping the figures. The robot sells for 40-50 bucks so I actually make a profit and it's like getting 6 figures for free!

Then I hopped on over to a KB Toys store and found two Shockers for 8 bucks each! I'm not a scalper but I did buy them both to see if I could trade Shocker for something nice later on :D

I found that same kind of deal with the Sentinel series. None of the Wal-Marts around here put their toys on sale for some reason though. I got the Omega Red instead of Mystique because I have 2 Mytiques I got for like $5 together.

I'm looking for good deals now. I think I'll check out KB in my area for Shocker.

Lol, I got the Mystique because I have two Omegas already instead :lol:

And it looks like Panther had a variant!? The one I bought just now has Silver eyes while my old Black Panther has Golden eyes @_@

So far, I've bought 3 Hobgoblins. I turned one into Green Gobin, I repainted another with darker Orange and removed the glued on pumpkin bomb, and I'm using the 3rd for Martin Longbow. They are extremely unrare (common I guess) Wal-Mart in my area has about 8 and a bunch of Hydroman.

Its a very good figure too. So good, they obviously just recast it for the Green Goblin in the recently ML series.

About 7 to 8 bucks is what I've seen ML figures sell for at most stores. I would rather buy them in lots from ebay since I get a small discount and I like everything loose anyway :]
