Weekly pick-ups: Week 114!

I got a bunch of stuff this week; some games (it was bargain bin time again), blu rays and two TMNT figurines!

Donatello and Michelangelo TMNT figures

The 90’s TMNT cartoon is one of my favorite cartoons of all time so when I saw these figurines in that style I just had to have them. I already owned a Rocksteady figurine from the same range which is great; they now share a spot on my figurine shelf!

Spider-Man Homecoming and IT (blu ray)

Spider-Man Homecoming is the best live action Spider-Man movie because it just perfectly captures who Spider-Man is (Tom Holland is perfect for the role). IT was a great horror film that I, as a horror movie collector, just needed to have. I got both blu-rays for €20 which isn’t a bad deal!

Might No.9 (Xbox One)

The reviews for this games aren’t great but I really wanted to give it a go because I like the old Mega Man games. And it was only €3.99 so even if I don’t like it, I didn’t waste too much money.

Socom US Navy Seals (PS2)

I remember getting this game (and the headset) together with my OPM2 (official playstation magazine) subscription and I immediately fell in love with it. I know that there are a lot of tactical shooters that are better than Socom but it’s just a bit of nostalgia for me!

Command and Conquer Collection (PC)

17 Command and Conquer games for €1? Count me in!

Lego Marvel Avengers and Superbeat Xonic (PS Vita)

Lego games are always a ton of fun and getting this also helps my PS Vita collection. I didn’t know anything about Superbeat Xonic but I saw that it was a rhythm game so I just bought it. Lego Marvel Avengers was €5 and Superbeat only €3 so yeah; can’t really say no to that.

Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 82!

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!

What did you guys sell in the past that you now regret? Let me know in the comments!

Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 40!

Everyone who has followed my blog for some time must know that  I’m a HUGE Batman fan. So it’s not really a surprise that this week’s pickups are, once again, dominated by the caped crusader. But what did I get?

Batman Arkham Knight figurines: Arkham Knight,Nightwing, Commissioner Gordon,Catwoman and Robin

I already owned 2 of the Arkham Knight figurines (Scarecrow and Azrael) and I paid €22 for each of them. When I saw all of these on sale for €9.99 each I didn’t hesitate to buy them all. I’m not really planning on getting them all but they are a nice addition to my Batman collection.

Arkham Knight figurines and Batman the Animated Series part 1 and 2

Batman the Animated Series season 1 and 2 (DVD)

Probably the best animated superhero series of all time. I loved this show as a kid and I think it’s still great to watch now.

Weekly pick-ups: Week 37!

It’s been awhile since something Marvel related popped up in this segment but today that drought ends! Besides the Marvel pickups I also added some blu-rays to my growing blu-ray collection.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Power Charged Electro Figure

I know, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is a pretty mediocre (some would say bad) film but that didn’t stop me from picking up this toy. It’s rather small but it has a pretty cool light up feature. The fact that it cost less than €4 made it even better.

Avengers Age of Ultron All-Stars Hulk Figure

Two things made me buy this figure: the price and the fact that this was by far the best looking one they still had in the shop. The other one that was still available, Captain America, looks absolutely horrible. This figurine gets a spot in front of my Hulk collector’s edition DVD.

The Imitation Game, The Purge Anarchy and Welp (Blu-ray)

The Imitation Game is a movie that my brother really likes, the Purge Anarchy is a lot better than the first one (that was just boring) and Welp is a Belgian horror film and even though I thought it was pretty mediocre, I still bought it to support the makers.
