Toys

Spent most of the weekend doing outdoor stuff. Not fun stuff, unfortunately. Prepare-for-winter, work-my-aft-off stuff.
Raked leaves, moved gravel, stacked some wood, cleaned gutters on one side of the house.
Gah. My back is killing me. I'm getting too old for this manual labor. Need to take more Advil.
And, my internal clock is all messed up, with the time change.

The whole weekend wasn't a loss, I did score a few cool toys from the antique mall.

Look who I found, minus paperwork but otherwise complete.



I had to look up the instructions to see how to transform them.
I'd guess condition is 'fair'. Joints are loose and decals are scuffed. But, they are adorable.


And...
I took a chance on buying this.
A red, Diaclone Sunstreaker.
Includes both fists, 3 missils, no paperwork, and is missing one rocket booster.

Nothing like posting a lopsided picture. derp.


I had never heard of Diaclone before. While standing in front of the case, I did a quick look-up on the Internet with my phone. It was cheaper than any I saw on ebay.

The little figure is adorable. I guess they are called 'Inch Man' and he can just fit inside the car. His feet are magnets. Cute, cute, cute!


I wonder how many of these Inch Men have been lost in backyards, garbage cans and just misplaced. The life of a tiny toy figure is a hard one! hahaha.
There was another figure there by Kronoform, which is similar to the Diaclones.

Multiforce was more expensive, but I wasn't sure if he was a good buy or not. I need to do more research.
Maybe I'll post the rest of my purchases later tonight, if I have time.

And that was my boring weekend.
Now, I'm off to work!

OMG Reflector is awesome!! I'd have snatched that up like it was a bag full of money lying on the ground.

Your weekend sounds a lot like mine - get things done before it's really winter!

COOL! That Reflector is amazing! And I like that Sunstreaker, too. That's neat that you found these guys!

Woo! Have a nice hot bath, afterward?

Reflector! Wow!
And the stickers down Side's hood are pretty nifty! Almost like he went and got tribal tats... XD
