Monday was another one of those days at the local Goodwill when everything in the store is 50% off. I never really do well on these days. I don't know if I come at the wrong time, they aren't putting a lot out. I don't know what it is, I only find maybe 1 item, if I am lucky. I stood in the check out line for almost 30 minutes because the lady in font of me had a cart full. She bought 10-15 formal dresses, kid's clothes, women's clothes, men's clothes, shoes. I mean you name it she had it in the cart. All I had was a couple bags of fun. There were a couple of times I considered putting the back, but I hung on.
So were the bags worth it? It depends. After weeks of no ponies, one finally turned up. It was Shell-Bell, a G3 shimmer pony.
Some of the other notable items I got out of the bag are pictured below.
Admittedly, I pick and choose and repack the bags o'fun. But because of time and the crowds, I didn't do that much re-packing. I got excited because I thought I had found an Arcee that was in good condition.
As a general rule, I usually stay away from the newer Transformers because they are always missing a leg or arm or head. I thought she looked ok. But, on closer inspection she was missing a leg. So now I have this really cool looking one legged motorcycle. I should have learned my lesson with the newer version of Ravage from a bag o'fun.
For the time being, I will keep her. Hopefully, I can find a leg or make her a leg.
It has been a couple of weeks since I got my first kung-fu kangaroo from Warriors of Virture. I finally blogged about Yun this past weekend. Then I found the kangaroo Yee this week . At the rate I am going and if I am lucky, I should be able to find the last 3 by the end of the month. The movie isn't that great, but the figures have grown on me. They have some substance and are really well sculpted. I figure he and Rock'em Sock'em can be sparring buddies.
There were some assorted small figures but I didn't bother taking pictures of them. I might post about them at a later time.
