#607 of Year 2 G I Joe Sky Sweeper Jet

It's the last day of the month, and I'm still on a GIJoe binge... and it's still the movie vehicles.  Today it's the Sky Sweeper Jet.

#606 of Year 2 G I Joe Rockslide ATAV

I'm going to continue GIJoe week-ish with four more movie vehicles.  I didn't bother getting the figures from the movie line because I couldn't justify paying huge sums of money for them.  The vehicles, by contrast consists of a figure AND a vehicle and only costs double of what a figure would cost, so, it made more sense IMO to get the vehicles.  Nevermind that some of them went on clearance anyways...

DCUC Lanterns (including customs)

Nope, these aren't new toys I'm opening.  I did ask SirDragonBane of Chase Variant to pick up a few DCUC lanterns for me to buff up my "Corps".

#603 - #605 of Year 2 G I Joe Dado, Bang Jo and

I guess this is sort of turning out to be a GIJoe half week after all.  I was at the Japanese import store, when I noticed these in their discount bins.  Yes, some spanish GIJoe in a Japanese store.  So totally weird...

#602 of Year 2 G I Joe Specialist Trakker (MASK)

Hasbro now has all the Kenner rights, and to ensure that they retain the copyright for some of the more notable characters, they had to do something at the end of 20 years or whatever that may be.  So they shoved Matt Trakker of MASK fame into their G. I. Joe line as an anniversary exclusive.

#601 of Year 2 Ghostbusters Slime Blower Winston

I'm just gonna open Winston today, just to complete my four Ghostbuster.  When the line was announced, I wasn't going to get any of them.  Then Ray came along with the gitd ghost and I got him, and along the line, I got Egon and Peter.  So since all that I had left was Winston, I got the Slimeblower version of him as well.

#599 and #600 of Year 2 Hook Peter Pans - Air Attack and Swashbuckling

I don't really have the time these days to do a post each day for each toy opened, so I thought I might as well just combine a few of them here and there where they make sense like I did last week.  And today it's two different versions of one character - Peter Pan!

#598 of Year 2 Ultraman GUYS GMS-04

It's the last day of the Ultraman week here on Toy a Day, and I end with this weird plane from Ultraman GUYS (I have no idea what that stands for), the GUYS Machine Series (GMS)-04.

#594 - #597 of Year 2 Ultraman Nexus Machines 1, 2 and 3

If the Dash Birds were unimagitively named the last time around, these three vehicles from the Ultraman Nexus series does take the cake.  They are simply named Ultraman Nexus Machines (or UNM) 1, UNM 2 and UNM 3.  Welcome to Ultraman week here on Toy a Day!

#591 - #593 of Year 2 Ultraman Max Dash Birds 1, 2 and 3

I'm going to proclaim this Ultraman week... and because I'm sort of behind, I'm just gonna merge everything together.

#590 of Year 2 Tomica Hero:Rescue Force Rescue Shovel

I was in Tokyo about three ago when I picked this up from a Supermarket in Narita.  Yes, supermarkets in Japan apparently has a toy aisle as well.

#589 of Year 2 Iron Man movie Titanium Man

The final toy for Iron Man week.  I know this is only the sixth toy for the week, but I don't have a seventh, and I'm not that keen on getting a seventh.

#588 of Year 2 Iron Man movie Iron Man

This is a bit overdue... by a week I think.  Anyways, I had this scheduled for Iron Man week, and this is the first proper Iron Man of the week.  It's from the first movie line and it looks great.

#587 of Year 2 Iron Man Blizzard

I like to say good things comes in twos.  Well, I was a bit underwhelmed with yesterday's Tony Stark from toybiz, so I don't have high hopes for Blizzard from the same line today.

#586 of Year 2 Iron Man Tony Stark

I transition from a recent line to one that was produced in the nineties.  It's still Iron Man week and I open Tony Stark from the toybiz line today.

#585 of Year 2 Iron Man Animated Adventures Mandarin

It's day 2 of Iron Man week, and I'm still on an Animated Adventures roll, which means there's no Iron Man?  Heh.  I'm not the guy who's into the main character.  Usually, it's the other characters in the line that interest me.

#584 of Year 2 Iron Man Animated Adventures Crimson Dynamo

I think this is a bit overdue, but oh well.  I've been itching to open this for a while now.  It's Animated Iron Man though, and although it's 4-inch, it still looks like an interesting figure.

#583 of Year 2 MotUC Destructor from Fuerza-T

I got two extra Clawfuls.  I was hoping to make two Claw guys and army build with them, but Havoc pointed out that I could make Fuerza-T's Destructor with them which started me down this current "craze" for repaint customs.

#582 of Year 2 MotUC Dora custom

I got a spare Battleground Teela during the sale.  I mean she's got a nice new body and that body could be used as the basis for another character.  Yes, I know Battleground Teela is one of Toyguru's favourite characters, but I've no intention of displaying a sex-changed Master Bates.

#581 of Year 2 MotUC Battleground Teela

Well, since I'm on a MotUC roll, I might as well continue with it this week... and it's golden bikini blonde Teela aka Battleground Teela.  Is it me or is Mattel throwing the word Battleground as a prefix on almost everything these days?

#580 of Year 2 MotUC Stingrad custom

I got two more Buzz-Offs the other day, because like Catra, he comes with two weapons and can be displayed two different ways.  The third was just for custom fodder, of which I've not decided yet what to do with it.  Perhaps Kamo Kahn early next year?

#579 of Year 2 MotUC Clawful

I guess this is the second week of what's turning out to be MotUC and customs week.  Today isn't a custom though, but I'm opening a bona fide MotUC - Clawful.  I've got two more of him somewhere to make custom Claw Guys down the line, so be forewarned!

#577 and 578 of 365 Masters of the Universe Classics Naked Grizzlor Army

When Grizzlor went back on sale the other day, I decided to pick up a couple more of the furballs for my Naked Grizzlor Army (NGA).  Now, I've already written about Grizzlor the first time I got him, as well as the second figure that I got to display him in his reimagined version.
