The forum logged me out and I lost my post. Here's the picture. TL;DR (and don't want to retype): Transformers: War for Cybertron: Siege may be the best overall TF line ever.

Paz Viszla (AKA Heavy Infantry Mandalorian) arrived today. He is a truly fucking sweet figure.

Here he is chilling with the other two Mandalorian figures (as well as that pretender asswipe Fett).

I bought the Solo 4 pack with & a Jyn TVC figure for $20 total. Toys R Us clearance - last ones of each & I barely ever shop there any more. Felt like a half decent mini-score.

Found the new ML Squirrel Girl the other day at work.
And by found, I mean I went looking for it in the back room and bought it when I punched out. Perks.

Nice figure, but she doesn't fit on her scooter very well.
The scooter will be fun to put other figures on for a chuckle though.

Not toys, but I was in a sports card store last weekend and bought a small handful of game used hockey jersey cards.
They were a fairly new and expensive thing when I quit collecting ages ago, so I never got any.

For $39, I picked up:

Steve Yzerman - 2000 Omega #3, Game Used Jersey Card ($10)

Chris Osgood - 2001 Crown Royale #14 Game Used Jersey Card ($5)

Nicklas Lidstrom/Pavel Datsyuk - 2011-12 SPX Hockey Dual Game Used Jersey Card ($10)

Cam Neely - 2001 Fleer, Joe Louis Arena Board ($5)

Joe Thornton - 2003 Upper Deck #CS-JT, Game Used Jersey Card ($3)

Paul Kariya - 2001 Upper Deck #PK, Game Used Jersey Card ($3)

Lanny McDonald, Jerome Iginla, Roman Cervenka - 2013-14 Trilogy Hockey #PPF-CGY Game Used Jersey Card ($3)

I haven't heard of many of the brands/companies, but I don't care.
And sadly, Lanny wasn't a game used mustache trimming.

I think Omega/Crown Royale were part of Pacific, who were bought by Panini, who owns Donruss and Score.

SPX and Trilogy are brands of Upper Deck, who also now owns Fleer.

In fact, I think only trading card companies left are Upper Deck, Topps, and Panini. Upper Deck has exclusive rights to the NHL. Topps does MLB and NFL. Panini makes NFL. They also still make baseball cards, but they photoshop out the MLB logos. I don't know who makes NBA cards.

Got the Jabba Throne Room set from Walmart for $30. Not sure if I want to open it or not.

I was in Anchorage for some training and popped into a Walmart. Got General Lando and Skiff Guard Lando on the vintage throwback cards for $3.50 each. Yes, the $3.50 thing from South Park was going through my head as I purchased them.

I also found a baseball card shop and picked up a bunch of baseball and hockey cards from the late 70s-early 80s.

I've been getting the 40th Anniversary ESB 6" figures on the remade vintage cards. Recently I got the Probot, TIE Pilot & a newly created R2 Dagobah (dirty of course). I love ESB.

I picked up dirty Artoo also, but damn, the scale of the figure feels so far off.

I haven't had him in my hands yet, I'll finally see him when I'm home next week. Too fat? Short? Tall? Skinny? My "original" R2 is still on the remade ANH vintage card, I've never opened any of them. ><

Too small overall. The dirty is the same as the original I think, just some brown paint, I believe.

The Bandai model kit is a hell of a lot closer.

That C-3PO on the right looks so much better than the dull one in the center.

The Black Series Threepio is good, but that Bandai model is movie quality good.
My only problem with the models is they are more delicate.
