    Every year as school starts to wind up I just straight up abstain from sitting down and fiddling with any plastic crack I buy, come winter break I pull out the box cutter and get to work. I stopped around early August this year, and this is what I ended up with, most of it either coming from TRU, BBTS POL, or my local comic store. Its a fun little lesson in patience, and it makes me feel like a little kid again when I finally get to tear all this stuff open. Also keeps things in perspective, with just how much of this stuff you can accumulate over the course of a year. Anywho, Happy Holidays ya'll!

    Got a haul like that in my BBTS PoL... won't be shipping it out in the near future though. Gotta say... I think this is a greeeeat idea.

    And ZOMG Servo! I still own the original toys. Xenon's a personal fave. Drago's sadly missing his chest plate... and no decals. Glad to see a super articulate update to the figures. (Syncro's coming next year it seems.)

    Is the Megazord just a super articulate figure, or are they also set of transformable zords?

    Have fun chopping up all those packages! hahaha

    I must know where you got that Samus! I have always wanted one since I played Metroid Prime.

    nice haul. I'd imagine after a few you'd get tired opening and fiddling around with them and not want to open the others. also, if you save it like that and find out stuff are broken or missing you may have past the deadline to return or exchange.

    There's a part of me that wants to open everything at once like this, but I think I prefer opening them as I get them. It lets me appreciate everything individually, instead of a nonstop rush of plastic.

    I also just realized that's a Halo 3 campaign character pack, with Master Chief, Arbiter and the other two Elites players 3 and 4 got to play as. AWESOME!

    It's a Figma Samus by Max Factory. Only stocked in Japan really and has been sold out for a while. eBay is your only real bet to get one now, but it won't be cheap. Only place I know of still accepting orders is poweranime.com but while you can place a pre-order, they won't guarantee it as stock is limited.
