Anyone familiar with the LockPicking Lawyer on Youtube?   

You know, the guy who makes fun of Master locks at any opportunity...    

 

Anyway, a couple of years ago, he and his buddy 'Bosnian Bill' made a very special lockpick, for disk detainer type locks(the ones where the key is a half-cylinder, with angled notches in them).   

They teamed up with Sparrow Lockpicks to get a new model made, and this one is now available in the Sparrow webshop. Unless it's sold out, already... 

And now one of those picks is making its way to me...

Finally crossed off a few kits on my wishlist....  Bandai's Real Grade RX-78, Z'Gok, and Hi-Nu will be mine soon enough (pics won't be for a while though, since I went private warehouse on that order, so I can hopefully add one or two more kits next payday then have it shipped)

Missing a piece, part of the tail. From Ebay.

I already have 2, so I'm hopping to be able to make an instant mold of the tail from one of them...

(I did not know that it was missing....)

Classic Partha sculpts!

 

Acquired tonight at the FLGS, basically for free (as I used my store points):

 

GW layer paints -

Flash Gitz Yellow, Troll Slayer Orange, Fire Dragon Bright & Stormhost Silver

 

The first three, along with Mordant Earth (which I had already), I'll be doing some lava bases for some special minis. I wanted to test Mordant Earth first before using for anther more important project. Since I'm using a online tutorial, I wanted the paints to be all fully 100% compatible for the test + hey free paints.

 

Also acquired, but not at the FLGS, a slightly used (looks more or less a sitting on a shelf) copy of the Pathfinder Core Rules 2nd edition Pocket Edition. For PFS, I'm trying to stay away from digital (minus my character sheet), so figured go pocket edition! Picked it up for less around $18 dollars. Sorry FLGS, but I couldn't pass this one up.

Not like I really need model kits right now, but this was one I've had my eye on & every time I've seen in stock, it goes out of stock right away:

Time to live up to the Klipsch motto...

My neighbors listen to good music!

With a few family members who had temporarily moved in now heading out again, I had time to start getting things out again.

 

Stopped at the Dollar Tree to restock on some superglue and look at what they have.

 

Got a lot of stuff in the end.

 

They finally restocked on their cheap mermaid dolls, grabbed two of them in order to pop the tail off...I've been looking for them nearby for a few years and either missed restocks or they only just started carrying them again...I'd seen someone make a piece of frostgrave terrain with them either here or at the LAF, though I grabbed one of their wooden plaques for a base rather than the CD or DVD the original had used (Can't remember who made the original).

 

Grabbed several of the Final Faction: Crawler packs because they look like I could base and repaint them rather well for some buggy monster type...each pack has 2 of them, got 3 packs and I'm not sure if I'll use all 3 packs or put some of them on my shelf with some of the other Final Factions stuff I have (It reminds me of the old GIJoes I used to have in their design (I also grabbed both vehicles and the Arrow Upgrade for that purpose).

 

Found a pack of Gnomes dressed as noble women in their left overs section where they have a few pieces left from their fairy garden stuff. Also grabbed a few of their packages of plastic fern fronds that look like they'll be easy to clip down for terrain work.

Back from vacation and have pics of just a couple of things.  Not pictured are some more Star Wars Legion (more units of stuff I already have), a Valtteri Bottas hat and official hats for the Miami and Canadian GPs (I couldn't attend either this year due to my back, but friends did and acquired thigs for me), an extra battery for your doorbell camera and more low carb cereal.  Probably a few other things I've forgotten already.

While I was on vacation this came in:
20220802_IMG_0090.JPG.c265df8386fe252882b730cee40962eb.JPG

 

A week later and still not opened.  Should be a fun "toy" to play with as soon as I get some time...

And yesterday I got this used:
20220802_IMG_0091.JPG.0cbf7d35ebb53dfc51c8779065ebf8d2.JPG

Saved on getting it new. A few figs are assembled but nothing is painted.
