If anyone still collects Cars, K-mart has about 10 or so exclusive cars. Most of them were still available this evening. 9 of them are race cars with rubber tires. Todd (Pizza Planet) was also available, as well as a chase Andretti. I don't know if they are also exclusive.
Also, I think I saw one with a 3 3/4 GI Joe action figure stuffed in the package.
I took my nephew to K-Mart this morning for the event. They also had Mini & Patty.
Oh no! I forgot all about that.
I had gotten an email from K-Mart even, but never made it over there. I'll have to head out after school and see if there's any left.

I finally scanned one of the new, single packed 2-inch Unleashed figures at Wal-Mart and they rang up at $2.97 each.
I guess the big $5.24 sign above them needs to be changed from the previous hanging item!

Ah ok, that sounds much better


Not that I plan to get any though. I stopped collecting the Unleashed Battlepack line a couple of years back.

I'm sure they'll be sought after in 15 or more years as a lot of collectors passed on these.
I myself won't drop $11.99 or more on the current assortments of the standard multi-packs!
25 years ago I would've went ape on the small Unleashed line because I always wanted "green army men" versions of SW characters.

That's what Star Wars Minis are for!

Yep, especially if they end up being short produced!

Likewise, at that age I would have loved a Star Wars vs Army Men battle! I had a bunch of those army men myself, most were green and I also had a few that were other colors like red & yellow.

Oh yeah, I remember my friend had a few metallic blue plastic army men. Very unique!
I used to see different shades of green and also gray ones.
But they were all the same 6-8 classic poses!

I remember the gray ones, I think I had a few of those too.

And yeah, it was cool how the green ones came in different shades.

A little something I've been working on the past few days...

Those Alice pictures look freaky. Was the White Queen in the Disney cartoon? I don't remember her. Burton sure loves to have Johnny Depp & Helena B Carter in his movies. Can't think of his last movie that didn't feaure at least one of the two.

Someone (I think I know who it is) keeps texting me messages.

I don't have texting on my phone, and every time I get one, it costs me money.

So please stop! Just call me and leave a voice message, otherwise I'm sending you a bill.

Don't try to open the text and you shouldn't get charged for it.....
Doesn't it cost the person sending the text as well? What an idiot.

*64 will trace and record the # with any service (even land line)......three times within a 30 day period and you can call Frank to stop the harassment.

Saw Transformers last night.

Only 2 gripes from a pretty good movie.

1. Too many robots. Not enough screen time for each.

2. Decepticons had 2 of several of the "constructicons" not sure how they explain that away.

Otherwise a good romp that I need to see in IMAX now. Prime is "life sized" in the forest battle scene.

over 24 hours later and nothng? wow.

Yesterday's news abotu the Storm Commando in the evolutions pack is awsome. However, I've had Storm Commandos for over 2 years now. They came out in the Alliance and Empire Boosters for the Star Wars Minis. Kinda nice to see a MINI become an action figure, instead of the other way around.

The Minis Storm Commando looks exactly like the action figure one coming out. Except that we've got green eyes.

My son graduates from high school today!

I am so proud of him, but man..I cannot believe that the time is already here.

We'll be busy this weekend as family is coming in and we're having a party tomorrow to celebrate.

I am officially old!

Yep, for sure. Very spotty, hit or miss.
