    Frostraven is back up at Amazon. Looks like a one per customer deal.

    Oh sweet, we got some leaked pictures for some more upcoming Pokemon, including some of the Detective Pikachu sets.

    There's also one of the official art for Loudred, Lickitung, and Mr. Mime, implying those will all be getting sets too. Probably also to deal with Detective Pikachu.

    Found Slowpoke and Raichu at Walmart. Decided to only buy one of them (Slowpoke) because I still haven't assembled Blastoise, Snorlax, and Lapras yet. Looks like the case pack is 4 x Raichu + 2 x Slowpoke.

    Canadian Collectors head's up, Dollarama is stocking Series 6 Poke Balls. Got the whole set for 3$ a piece. Keep checking. Also saw a re-stock of the Assassins Creed armored dudes and that robed guy... Forgot the name.

    Series 6 is a pretty well rounded team, you've got a Grass/Poison type, Water/Electric, Water/Fairy??? (Marill did get the Fairy type right?), Flying/Normal, Bug and Fire... I'd start a game off with this particular team, they cover weaknesses fairly well and have good potential evolutions. Not sure on earlier series, but Series 6 is a good starting line-up... Incidentally it's also four Kanto and two Johto Pokémon so that's pretty sweet.

    Quite a bit of old articulation Halo series 2 blind bags have shown up as well at Dollarama.

    Found Scyther at Target but it wouldn't ring up and they said it has a street date of March. Oh well i will find it elsewhere if target wants to lose money.

    Nothing from the heroes wave I take it?
    I have a fear that is where these figures will end up, unfortunately.

    Not yet. Who knows, but so far Dollarama hasn't ever gotten any of the Halo or CoD heroes so I doubt we'll see them get the others.

    I always tell them if they put it out I should be able to buy it.

    You can get a good Eternian Guard out of Man At Arms, the Call of Duty heads have the same t peg as the helmet.

    You have to turn one of the lower arms and hand around though.

    The leg pad won't remove so you can't swap it.

    The pegs on the back stress easy and the mace and pistol have holes that are too small.

    The Duncan head looks great on a WW2 figure.

    I started a new custom tonight too.

    Yeah that head looks perfect for either Bazooka or Gung Ho. The latter would require sculpting for a bald head

    Sgt Stacks.

    Check you cardboard aisle lands at Wal-Mart. I found the whole case of wave four heroes tucked in one today.

    Well if Scyther wasn't supposed to be released until March, that would explain Amazon saying it'd be shipped in 1-3 months. Yup good start to a new year. :lol 

    Da fuq!?! Where'd they dredge those up.........
