The Captain America: The First Avenger figs are already on sale and I decided to snag these Crossbones and Winter Soldier figs because I think they fit my Joe-verse seamlessly. I'm quite fortunate to be able to find both figs on the shelves considering how well they were selling prior to the price reduction and for 200 bucks each, there was no reason not to give these villains a try. Luckily, both figs are worth the purchase.

Merry Christmas, dear readers! I hope you're all having a wonderful day with your family and friends but please don't forget the real reason why we're celebrating today! Let's continue to strenghten our personal relationship with Lord Jesus and let's share His love and blessings with the people around us! My family and I will be off to the mall in a while but before we go, I'll be sharing with you another Christmas Toy Fair acquisition. I was able pick up an action figure of a character who is green, strong, and full of anger but no, I'm not talking about the Grinch here, I'm talking about the Hulk!

I'm back with another 1:18 acquisition and this time I have something from last weekend's Hasbro Toy Fair. It's an Iron Man: The Armored Avenger Mark V figure and depending on your tolerance, it may be something that, in your opinion, doesn't really warrant a purchase. We already got a 1:18 Mark V fig from the Iron Man 2 toyline and to be honest, I don't like the idea of buying two figures with very minor paint differences between them. I passed up on this fig when I first spotted it at retail last March but the fig's now down to 60% of its original price and so, I decided to give it a try.

After two restless nights at work, I'm getting the feeling that this week is going to be a lot tougher than I previously thought. I need to get a ton of sleep to help me get through three more nights of rigorous work but I want to continue what I've been doing the past couple of days (dishing out blog entries) to show my gratitude to the peeps who continue to patronize the site. Thank you, guys! So, let's go check out some Marvel stuff which I was able to acquire from this year's Christmas Toy Fair!

My rest days for this week are over and I'm back at work handling an increased load but I'll try my best to post some site contents if time permits me. Today's schedule won't allow me to do a lot of my Playground duties, so we'll just breeze through another pre-Toy Fair haul and call it a day. I was planning to cover a different toy for today but due to time constraints, I made a compromise and decided to pick a less complicated figure to tackle, just to keep things short and simple.

Another day, another toy. Yey! Today, we have the Iron Man 2 Comic Series Ultimate Iron Man figure, another figure that was not released locally here in the Philippines. I was fortunate enough to snag one through eBay and it's high time to check out this amazing piece of plastic that we almost missed out on.

Greetings! I'm still feeling the euphoria of the just-concluded 6th Christmas Toy Fair and I'm very eager to share my hauls from the said event but before I can do so, I still have some good pre-Toy Fair acquisitions to show you. We don't really need to rush things because like I told you, what we'll be checking out are good acquisitions, and I'm quite sure you'll enjoy them.

Jeez, I can't believe it's been three long weeks since I made my last post! My sincerest apologies. We've been very busy at work and I've been finding it hard to attend to any of my hobbies because of the extra time I need to spend at work. But fret not, I'm back with some new toys and we'll be tackling them in the following days. I attended the 6th Christmas Toy Fair and the Hasbro Toy Fair yesterday, both at SM Megamall, and I was able to score some nice figures from both events. I still have some pre-Toy Fair hauls that I need to cover, so let's get them out of the way first.
