On Saturday while on vacation at the Oregon Coast, I stopped by the Newport, OR Fred Meyer and they had a 20% off sale on all action figures.

I saw 3 AT-TE's on the high shelf, scanned one, and got my third AT-TE for $79.99.

When I average out what I have paid on all three, I haven't paid over $90.00.

I managed to get a $150 26" Schwinn Sidewinder bike for $50. I got it home,and it rode much better than my old Fuji mountain bike. It was ridden once and returned to the store, and it's no longer going to be carried by our store, well at least not for the Fall.

Would think you'd be sick of bikes considering. ;) Nice get though. Go easy on the frame tho', those things don't take much abuse to crack.

Not really a toy haul but toy related anyway. My new display cabinets arrived today. 2 of them are on a wall and 3 on the opposite wall (they are joined together so thus they look like being only a smaller curio and a larger one). Each of the separate curios is about 2 meters tall and about 1 meter wide. The depth and distance between shelves is about 35 cm in both cases. I included the Gentle Giant ROTS Vader bust for you to see how it looks like displayed inside

Thanks buddy! :)

Due to some problems that occured, I might have to move there only in 2009, but I'm glad the cabinets arrived. Some of the collectibles will be displayed there though, even if I'm not going to live in the new house for now.

As for the curio dimensions here they are:

Width: 96 cm - 37.7"
Height: 37 cm - 14.5"
Depth: 30 cm - 11.8"


The width is calculated for 1 curio (with double glass doors) to see all the curios together you have to consider that there are 3 curios joined together on the right side of the room and 2 on the left. Height is calculated only for 1 shelf, to see total add all 5 shelves.

32" Sony WEGA Trinitron from 2004 - my 27" tv died on me, and being super low on funds, we hit Craig's List and found some good tube tv deals. This one was $150, dude thought it was 1 year newer and had 1 more year of transferable warranty, when he found out that wasn't the case I decided to look into it online and saw it was 165 pounds, which probably meant new furniture to hold it, so I passed. 30 mins later, he called back with a counter offer of $100, I took it. It was a beast to get into the car and then out of the car and into the elevator, but my coffee table actually does hold the weight. It's very large, and has the original remote, good color, resolution isn't quite as good as my late Samsung but still decent. So it's a transition TV, but decent, especially for the price.

Actually, the occasional K-Mart visit finally paid off. I found all four there today for $7.99 each. The Wal-Mart near it also had a couple 1st Day versions of Captain Rex, so it seems those cases are still making their way out.

PS3 Motorstorm - $12 off Amazon marketplace because the box was damaged. Game plays fine though.

PS3 SW:The Force Unleashed - got it from TRU for the $20 giftcard since I didn't care for the Game Stop figure. First 2 levels are awesome, but I'm still on the junk planet level and it's kinda boring, very repetitive and constrained level. If it's more of this, I can see why the game got 7/10 ratings.

Hasbro V-19 Torrent - with my $20 giftcard, I bought the V-19 from TRU finally. They had the 25% off discount, so it came to $20.29, nice! Ok ship, I really REALLY wish the wings locked down better though, inverted play causes them to droop. Ship really needs more deco and details, too many smooth elements including the cockpit interior. And I can't get figures to hold that control stick, the shape is too weird for the hands. Good, not great.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off - $7.50 at Target.

By the way, instead of sleeping last night, I spent an extra hour finishing off Raxus Prime in TFU, the level really was a snore right up until the boss fight which was excellent, very satisfying - little alien Jedi had gone crazy and recreated the Jedi Council out of junk, then was talking to them during the fight, his junk mechanical spider limbs made him a formidable opponent and fun to watch the up-close saber fight. Thankfully, the next level - Felucia - is breathtaking and has exciting grunt enemies to kill, making me regret not buying the TFU Rancor w/ Felucian Shaman.

2x $8 Uniflame portable charcoal grills - it was way cheaper than buying a slightly bigger one that the vegetarians in the family would have to share.

cheap bbq tools - to go with the above.

Young Indy - found at WM, they had a batch, all had bad paint on the face including mine. Ok figure, not enough articulation or accessories.

A Haunting - seasons 1-4 box set ($30) - Discovery Channel series featuring dramatic recreations of real-life paranormal encounters. The episodes can be quite creepy when watched late at night with all the lights off.

A Haunting is such a creepy show (especially since it's all drama recreation)! I find it scarier than any horror movie I've seen in a long long time!

A Haunting is such a creepy show (especially since it's all drama recreation)! I find it scarier than any horror movie I've seen in a long long time! Yep, I was constantly impressed on how unnerving this show can be, especially for a basic cable television series. Nothing like a good ghost story though. Great deal on the set too - over 32 hours of entertainment for $30 (9 DVDs / 39 episodes).

Today I got:
