    As 2016 comes to an end, we've all made some purchases that we enjoyed. Wether it was a toy, statue, car, video game, movies, etc. Some of them stick out to be our favorite purchases.

    I'll just limit myself to 10

    Play Arts Kai - Batman: Arkham Knight - Nightwing
    Play Arts Kai - Batman: Arkham Knight - Bagirl
    Play Arts Kai - DC Variant - Sparta Batman
    Revoltech - Deadpool
    DC Collectibles - Designer Series - Dark Knight Batman (Andy Kubert) statue
    Xbox One - Forza Horizon 3
    Xbox One - Life is Strange
    New Nintendo 3DS
    Nikon 35mm DX lens
    Not really a toy, but I got a tattoo in the Philippines. I would say that this was THE BEST purchase that I made all year. The tattoo was cheap. How cheap? The tip I gave him was more than what he was charging for the tattoo.

    That Sparta Batman looks rad. First I've heard of it.

    My favorite figure purchase this year was (believe it or not) Neca MOTU staction Webstor. I've wanted it for such a long time and was finally able to get one for a decent price. Yeah, it's a really old figure now and most will probably say "why?" but, I don't care. I love it.

    MP-29 Laserwave and Mezco DK Batman are pretty high on my list.

    Marvel Legends Deadpool... As a HUGE Deadpool fan (right up there with Batman) this was both necessary and getting him in hand is accomplishing as a ML collector... Honorable Mentions to Rogue, Wolverine, & Juggernaut. Great to see my favorite sub-group of Marvel characters in ML form.

    Transformers Robots in Disguise Warrior Class Bisk - Its a robotic lobster! 'Nuff said.

    Transformers Titans Return Chromedome/Getaway, Astrotrain, Bumblebee, & Blurr/Brainstorm - All highlights of an amazing line that any Transformer fan must try out.

    Pokemon Moon - Yeah its a video game but I want to mention it as its always a blast to start a new journey in a new region.

    I didn't buy it but I do want to shout out the plush RWBY Blake Belladonna I got for Christmas. One of my favorite fictional characters now in plush form!

    I've bought a bunch of TFs this year, but the best are Chromedome, Galvatron modded to greatness, and the Ross special Fortress Maximus, which I never thought I would own.

    Other things? Hmm... I got an awesome laserdisc player, found a ridiculous Pioneer Elite receiver at a used shop for cheap, picked up a big Sony trinitron TV for $12 that is frickin sweet with old video games.

    Believe it or not, Marvel Legends Civil War Captain America is at the top of my list this year.

    Unite Warriors Bruticus, Figuarts Fujiko, Masterpiece Powered Convoy, and Filmation Skeletor round out the top five.

    Let's see...

    Top of the list is definitely Figuarts Broly. After that, and in no particular order, I think I would go with Figuarts Awakening Goku and Leonardo, Figma ALBW Link, Warrior Bisk and Paralon, and ML Wolverine, Dormammu, and Hobgoblin.
