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.

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...

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.

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.

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!

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!
Wednesday 17 August 2011
I'm going to proclaim this Ultraman week... and because I'm sort of behind, I'm just gonna merge everything together.

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.

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.
Wednesday 10 August 2011
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.

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.

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.
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?

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!
