|Thrift Store Thursdays|
It's week three of Thrift Store Thursdays! Are you ready? Have you mentally prepared yourself?
Uhh... well, that's fine, I guess.
This week, I've got a bunch of Batman stuff, plus a handful of Spider-Man toys, and a random assortment of other goodies. Let's check it out!
|Nick Fury and Spider-Man|
On the right is an odd 12 inch Spider-Man. At first, I wasn't sure what to make of him. He has a button on his side and when I pressed it, weird, distorted voice sounds came out. I thought it was a "talking" Spider-Man whose voice recordings were damaged, and then I realized what he really was: a Spider-Man walkie-talkie!
|Left: Spider-Man "action" figures. Right: Spider-Man yo-yo.|
Next up is more Spider-Man toys. I found a trio of strange Spider-Man action figures. One of them has suction cups on his hands, and I'm guessing it's a Happy Meal toy. The one that's standing up straight has arms that move at the shoulders, but not the elbows. You can pose him with his hands behind his back, or in front, and that's it. The Spider-man on the ground is in a permanent sitting position, and can't stand up. He looks like he was originally riding a motorcycle, and some kid tore him off. My final Spider-Man toy is a Spider-Man yo-yo, still in the package.
|Star Fleet Battles Strategy Game|
Here's a random assortment of characters. On the left is a Homer Simpson as Frankenstein's Monster toy. This is a good find for me, because I collect Frankenstein toys. Now I have to my eyes peeled for the Marge Simpson as The Bride of Frankenstein figure. Then there is some kind of fantasy warrior or sorcerer woman. I have no idea who she is. After that is a fun astronaut figurine, and Anakin "I'm a whiny, annoying little biz-natch who tried to ruin one of the coolest villains in movie history" Skywalker.
|Playmobil Pirate Island|
Speaking of Batcaves, let's move on to my favorite Thrift Store Thursday finds: Batman stuff!
|Batman: The Story of the Dark Knight|
Batman: The Story of the Dark Knight is a hardcover children's book that tells the origin of Batman in a series of oversized retro comic, pop art illustrations. The artwork in this is really great, and it makes for a fun addition to my Batman collection. The best part of this find was the price I paid for it: 69 cents!
|Action Figures and Playset|
|Batman Happy Meal Toys|
|Fisher-Price Trio Joker Bot|
Alright! That's it for week three of Thrift Store Thursdays. Next week I'll be showing off a couple of Batmobiles and a Joker van I already have in my collection, as well as whatever new stuff I pick up this week So you next Thursday!.
