No new console this week but I did pick up a game for my newly acquired Xbox One and then some other stuff. Let’s dive into it!
Gears of War 4 (Xbox One)
I found this for €20 new which is an amazing deal knowing that it not only has Gears of War 4 but also includes all the Xbox 360 versions of the previous Gears of War games! Pretty neat.
The Final Destination (blu-ray).
My horror movie collection hadn’t seen any updates in a while so I decided to change that. I’m a big fan of the Final Destination series but this one is definitely the weakest of them all. Weirdly the normal blu-ray version was more expensive than this 2D/3D combo; no idea why.
The Cursed Crusade (PC)
I like games set in the Middle Ages so this game was on my radar for some time. I normally buy all my games on Steam but The Cursed Crusade wasn’t in the store anymore so I had to go to Amazon to get it. It’s good that it was cheap because it isn’t a good game.

Public service announcement: From next week on weekly pick ups will be online at around 9 instead of earlier in the day. Stay tuned because next week will be another BIG post (I already spoiled a bit on my Twitter).
You know that special feeling when you buy a new console? Well, I experienced that this week!
Xbox One S 1 TB + Forza Horizon 3 + Quantum Break + Halo Wars 2 + Gears of War Ultimate Edition + Halo The Master Chief Collection
I wanted a Xbox One for a long time but I never really found one for a decent price. But that changed when I found a Xbox One S 1TB + Forza Horizon 3 + Quantum Break pack for €288. That pack was especially good because I’m only going to use my Xbox One to play exclusive games (console exclusives also count). I then went out and bought Halo Wars 2 (€19,99 new), Gears of War Ultimate Edition (€9, new) and the Halo Master Chief Collection (€24,99 used). A lot of gaming for a relatively small price. And yes, I know that the Xbox One X is coming out in the very near future but I just couldn’t pass up this deal.

This week we take a trip to the past. I bought some new/old toys that were a big part of my childhood. Let’s see what I got!
Virgil Tracy Thunderbirds Action Figure Doll (Matchbox)
I loved Thunderbirds growing up; I had all the VHS tapes and I would watch them whenever I could. I also owned most of the toys that were available at the time (including the Tracy Island set) and I loved them! I however stupidly sold them in my teenage years and I regret that decision till this day. A couple of weeks ago I found one of these dolls on eBay; complete and in the box for about €30 with shipping; not a bad price for a piece of my childhood. This doll will get a prominent place in my collection; probably right next to the dvd boxset.
Rocksteady; TMNT classics
Last week I got a bunch of TMNT stuff and this week I added this Rocksteady figure. I bought it on Amazon for €20 and I want to re-watch the classic cartoon every time I look at the packaging. This will go perfect with the Bebop action figure that I got last week!

I’ve picked up a lot of stuff this week so let’s dive straight into it!
TMNT Ninja Stealth Bike, Bebop Action figure and TMNT Sewer Sandcruiser
I went to a flea market and found the Ninja Stealth bike and the Sewer Sandcruiser for a very good price (€5 each). I know that they aren’t complete but for that kind of money I don’t really care. The Bebop figure (from the Out of the Shadows movie) is brand new and was on sale for €6.99; not a bad price for a figure that originally sold for €14.99.
X-Men Apocalypse (Blu-Ray)
The weakest film from the ‘new’ X-Men trilogy (First class, Days of Future Past and Apocalypse) but I needed it to further complete my Marvel movie collection. It was only €8 so it’s not that bad of a deal.

Superheroes and Lego go together like bread and butter. This week I got hands on one of the Marvel Lego games!
Lego Marvel Super Heroes (PS4)
My mom actually bought this for my on a yard sale for €5; a great price for a great game!

You have failed this city! A lot of the times (especially in season 1) these words were followed by a deadly arrow. No risk of dying from my purchase this week but it is Green Arrow related!
Q-Fig Green Arrow!
The Green Arrow uses a lot of trick arrows but one of the most iconic ones is the boxing glove arrow so you can why I picked this up. It wasn’t that expensive (around €20) and it has quiet a lot of detail. Great addition to my DC collection!

Sometimes I browse online shops just for the fun of it. I’m not really looking for anything in particular; I’m just looking around. I did this a couple of days ago when I came across this Batman v Superman Armored Batman figure. And it is awesome!
Batman v Superman: Armored Batman
This Batman figure is 50 cm tall and still has a decent amount of articulation and detail. The paint job could have been better but overall it is a very nice looking Batman figurine. I made a comparison shot to show you guys just how big it really is. The Batman figure in front of it is about 15 cm tall.
