Pretty sweet. The only toy I bought lately was the 5POA Cai Threnali figure - and guess what? Bonus rotating ankle AND wrist joints! All kidding aside, it's a nice pilot figure.

Never got into TMNT, but that is pretty cool. We don't have FYE stores here. Didn't even realize they were still in business.

I haven't got much lately. Got the Funko Pop Bob Ross for Christmas. A few weeks ago, I got 4 vintage ROTJ figures (Weequay, Squid Head, Prune Face, and an Ewok (Teebo, I think), and a POTF2 R2 for $5. There were weapons in the bag, but they aren't Star Wars. A couple of the weapons might be Transformers. Might take them to the local toy store to see if they can identify them.

You could post a pic here. If they're TF, someone here can probably help.

Here they are.

The two rifles in the top row have pegs sticking out of them. The second row are the ones I thought might be from Transformers. No clue with the gold one could be.

We stopped in TRU today. I didn't expect there to be much left, but I ended up getting a 1:24 scale Bluesmobile.

This is it, but it was 50% off. There was only one on the shelf.

My daughter likes the show Tiny Houses, and they had a Hot Wheels scale Tiny Houses toy of a pickup towing a Tiny House. She thought it was pretty cool, so I bought it for her.

A tiny tiny house?

Tiny houses for people. They can tow them behind a truck and live wherever. I don't get it, but people do it. My kid likes the show because she has a architecture class and had to design one on her own.

I hadn’t been in TRU since they announced the closing.
It was pretty picked over.
I got a Marvel Legends 2 pack of Star Lord and Ego.
And a Lego 3in1 Skate Park set.
My daughter got a Pokémon plushie and an Animal Planet RC centipede to torment the cat with.

I don’t know if I’ll go back in again. But if it gets to ridiculous discount time and they still have a couple more of those LEGO skate parks. I’ll buy 1 or 2 more to make all three designs and put it in my LEGO city as the TRU memorial skate park.

Oh, I'm well aware of tiny houses - I'm semi-obsessed with them for some reason.

I was just making 2 jokes.
1. A tiny version of something already "tiny."
2. It was a Zoolander reference.

Many people have told me I should see Zoolander. I'm not really a fan of Owen WIlson or Ben Stiller, so I refuse.

I hated it the first time I saw it. I got stuck watching it a second time and thought it was kinda funny.
