Minifigs

I finally found some collectible minifigs in my town. There was a single open box of series 2 at one of my local Meijer stores. I picked up three packs. Then I went back for more but the box was gone. I did find one lone, forgotten pack hiding amongst a jumble of odds and ends in an end cap basket though, so I got that one.

All told I scored two Egyptian snake guys, a mime, and the disco dude. The color quality (or lack of shine to be specific) doesn't bother me at all. I am quite happy with the figs. I only wish I could find more at retail prices. Bricklink sucks with the double and more prices.

Oh well. Can't have everything.

Nnovvember

It is the third year of the annual Vic Viper challenge. I am not doing so well. Sure, I've got something going, but it's taking far longer than it should. Probably because I am also being distracted by World of Warcraft at this time.

At any rate, I'll have a few offerings to share by the end of the month. I'm sort of playing with the idea of saving the models until later in the month for a group shot and maybe some sort of action shots. We'll see how I feel about that as the days go by.
