Also pre-ordered a few Kotobukiya items with one being for hubby that he's asked for and, but also some Hexa Gear stuff I also want.  Moderately annoying that Hobby Search still only offers DHL or surface mail to Canada though, so had to deal with the ouch factor each of the 3-4 packages is going to have regarding shipping costs... 

 

But on the flipside, hubby is going to eventually be getting Agnirage, and I'll be getting Weird Tails (as well as Sieg Springer) 

 

... At some point I really should order those two models I really like - the purple one with the massive sword, and the Lumberjack Alpha with the axe...

Put together a display for the various pins that I've collected over the years.

 

$3 to make...used a picture frame from the dollar store and removed the glass, added a layer of adhesive backed cork to it, and then added some of the felt they have there.

EB Games managed to catch me.  My poor, poor wallet...

Eight times he's made it to a cart, and eight times he's been swapped out for something else.  Ninth time I finally decided I was going to get the kit, and of course he sold out practically everywhere in Canada the day before payday. 

 

So in some ways, I'm glad the kit is in my backlog now, in others, oof, poor wallet. 

 

.... Because that isn't all I picked up.  Picked up a travel kit for sketching yesterday, with a 2mm lead holder as I couldn't find my 1.3mm lead holder (found it a few hours later), a new sketchbook, blending pencil, a 24 pack of pencil crayons, and of course an eraser.... Oh yeah, and two sharpeners - one for the pencils, and one for the 2mm lead.

Edit: oh yeah, I also have an RG GP-01FB on the way too.

Nothing fun related, but got the flu shot...and thankfully not at Walgreens or CVS considering the mistakes they seem to be having.

 

Just as a warning for people, there have apparently been issues with several CVS and Walgreens locations where they'd accidentally given Covid vaccine shots instead of other vaccines (In one case, teenager going abroad due to custody issues needed six different vaccines and got 6 covid shots...), so if you're using either make sure to check before they give you the stick...

A friend of mine just dropped off these...

Since I don't drive and the nearest local is 30 miles away it's only about once every 2 years that I can get there. Having run out of both Steel Legion Drab and Agrax Earthshade, my two main colors for bases, I was able to arrange for resupply over the weekend. Also in there are Druchii Violet and Reikland Fleshshade.

Won a little something in the RCL last quarter and it arrived today. These don't seem to be widely available, or really available at all right now. Looking forward to getting this out and playing around with it eventually. 

 

 

IIRC he was the 2019 VIP mini, only available at the con.

 Got a box yesterday, three EvilBuy auctions I won from the same seller.

 

- The first was the body of the female frost giant from the Grenadier male and female frost giants Dragon Lords Giants Club set. No spear, no antlers.

 

 - The second was a fairly nice lot of weapons, which contained her spear. (I now have one of her complete and two that are only missing the antlers.) It also contained the spear shaft/hands and spear tip of the Colossal Lords female frost giant, and I needed the spear tip to help complete the box.

There were also two or three other weapons that I instantly recognized as parts I don't have for some figures that I do have.

 

- The third lot was a bunch of bases - including the base for the Colossal Lords female frost giant, which means that I now have one complete box, plus another box only missing the base.

 

Score.

Found a pair of knock-off parts cases at a local discount tool shop, for about half what anyone else is asking.  I've been running out of storage options for a while now. Each of the clear cases holds 18+ human sized figures, depending how you arrange them.  I can get 2-3 smaller figures in each compartment.  The top compartment is 3" or more deep, and will hold the bigger guys for now.   I'm going to ask DH to 3d print some dividers, so things don't slide around when it's moved.

The latches on mine are different, but the idea is the same.
