Bullseye Skull Pirate Mirror Wing Feb 2008

Today’s new arrival is the Bullseye (red) Skull Pirate. It’s one of the more common ones (I also have the purple counterpart) but for some reason I had never gotten around to picking one up. I spend so much time chasing down rare colors that easy to buy ones get pushed to the background. Now I just have to pick up the red and purple Bullseye Skullwings…

 

Float


November has been a really great month so far for collecting; I picked up the Bheeg Boss, a HSP set of Damnedrons, the newest drop from Secret Base and this Captain, the Float. He’s kind of dark, so he photographs weird, but I’ll work on getting better pictures of him when the other new arrivals.. arrive.

Zees rollin en wabbleen dis SIAMESEWERM


Happy Halloween everyone!
USPS woke my up early to deliver my Siamesewerm. Talk about a great Halloween treat!
I lucked out getting this fella from Secret Base thankfully- flippers have hit the secondary market pretty hard already with prices near $500 which takes it out of the reach of most collectors. Real amazing marbling in this pour. I’m still not sold on marbling (give me a FHP and I’m happy) but they’re growing on me.

Glow in the Dark Skull Pirate


While I was in NYC hanging out with my toy collecting friends, this fellow was being delivered by USPS to my house back in Philadelphia. I’ve coveted this guy for a while, but until now he had eluded me. I had tried to not buy anything new in preparation for the con, but when he came around complete with Jack o’ Lantern for a great price, I couldn’t resist.

With my NYCC purchases and this guy, I need to start rethinking the layout in my newest display case. A trip to the container store is in order to pick up some risers, but very soon I’m going to have to think about another case. These things multiply quickly.
