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.


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.
