It's almost December, and I guess I should go into something a bit more festive... from the Nightmare before Christmas, Mr. Jack Skellington courtesy of Revoltech!

#698 of Year 2 Playmobil 3997 Three Wise Men

I have always looked at Playmobil toys in wonder, but as a Lego fan, I really can't afford two expensive hobbies.  Still, when I saw this box on the shelves in the toystore, I knew I just have to have it.  Playmobil does a lot of religious themes - Noah's ark comes to mind, but the Nativity scene must be its most popular religious theme - I believe there are even Playmobil advent calendars!

#697 of Year 2 Food Fighters Fry Chopper

As I said, good things always comes in twos, except that I'm not sure if these Food Fighter vehicles can be considered to be good.  They are a throwback to a time when any and all household items were converted into toys - Computer Warriors from Mattel also comes to mind - but does that make them good?

#696 of Year 2 Food Fighters BBQ Bomber

Another 80s line today, this time it's the Food Fighters.  I don't have any recollection of the line, but it's anthromophic food battling each other out with kitchen appliances and such.  Hmmm....

#695 of Year 2 Space Strikers Master Phantom

I still remember watching Space Strikers.  It was one of those cartoons which I was really interested in, but could never remember when it is on.  I never knew there were toys for the series until I was picking at a clearance bin and saw this.  I guess I bought it just because.

#693 and #694 of Year 2 MotUC Flipshot/Icarius

It's still Macho man week, and I continue with two Flipshots... or Icarius as Mattel has decided to name him due to some copyright issue.

#691 - #692 of Year 2 American Gladiators Turbo and Nitro

It's another double today - a pair of testosterone filled brutes from a franchise that was popular in the nineties - American Gladiators.  Yup, you remembered it correctly.  People hanging on giant balls or fighting with giant cue-tips!

#686 and #687 of Year 2 MotUC Goddess and Captain Glenn

I thought I'd just close out Girl Toys week (aka Girls Just Wanna Have Fun week) with a pair of MotUC ladies...

#687 of Year 2 My Little Pony Rainbow Dash

I guess this is shaping out to be Toys for Girls week?  I've heard lots of talk from Bronies about how awesome the MLP line is, and I'm not really a fan of the whole pony thing, but I did get one of these to try out.

#685 and #686 of Year 2 Mega Bloks Smurfs Lazy and Harmony

It was Hello Kitty two days ago, and today I open another couple of Mega Bloks sets, this time from their Smurfs theme.

#683 and #684 of Year 2 Mega Bloks Hello Kitty Sailor and Birthday

Hello?  Is it me you're looking for?  Probably not.  Hello Kitty is one of those fads that won't die... and Sanrio has got Mega Bloks to actually make Hello Kitty sets.  Whoa!

#681 and #682 of Year 2 Super Mario Bros 1UP and WARP

The Japanese have funny toys sometimes.  I picked these two up on impulse just because they look cool.

#680 of Year 2 Mario Bros Donkey Kong

It's day 4 of the Super Mario Brothers week, and today it's the huge ape which started the whole franchise, Donkey Kong himself!

#678 of Year 2 Super Mario Bros Luigi

It's day 2 of the Super Mario Brothers week, and we have the other brother today, Mr. Luigi!

#677 of Year 2 Super Mario Mario

It's the second day of the week, and I think it's a good time to start the Super Mario Brothers week!

#676 extra of Year 2 Extra Spiral Zone Accessories

Well, four accessory packs... and since they are accessories, they don't count towards the Toy a Day limit!

#676 of Year 2 Spiral Zone Razorback

I dug this figure out a while back and realised that wow, I do have another Spiral Zone figure.  There were also four fashions accessory packs next to him in my huge storage box.

#675 of Year 2 Acroyear Exo Acrooptom

As I always say, good things comes in two.  Or at least that's my hope.  I picked up half of the team of Acroyear Exo and Acrooptom was the other figure besides Acrostera.

#674 of Year 2 Acroyear Exo Acrostera

Toy hunting in a foreign country is always fun.  Especially when that country happens to be Japan, the home of some of the most exciting toys since... well, forever.  While I was there a couple of years ago I picked up this pair of figures, one of which was Acrostera.  No, I don't read Japanese, but it's written there on the fron of her bubble in Latin letters, or romanji as the Japanese call it.

#673 of Year 2 Beetlejuice Gross Out Meter

Yes, it's only Friday, but this is the last of the Beetlejuice week.  I have been trying for a year to get a couple more figures, but sadly I never could get any.

Thursday 3 November 2011

#672 of Year 2 Beetlejuice Phantom Flyer

Another day, another Beetlejuice toy for Beetlejuice week here on Toy a Day.  It's not another Beetlejuice figure today, but it's something that's a lot more awesome - a vehicle from the line.  That's right, it's the Phantom Flyer!

Wednesday 2 November 2011

#671 of Year 2 Beetlejuice Shish Kebab Beetlejuice

It's day 3 of Beetlejuice week, and it's yet another Beetlejuice character.  Yay?

Tuesday 1 November 2011

#670 of Year 2 Beetlejuice Showtime Beetlejuice

Day 2 of Beetlejuice week, as we start the month of November.  No themed month this month, but it's the penultimate month that I'm doing this so yay!
