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!
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.
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.

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.
