Transformers 2 the Movie causes toy Economy to rise!

I'm sorry, but while the new 'recetion' has hit, my toy sales have tripled. Why? The warm fuzzy me likes to think, that no matter how hard things are, people want to make sure their kids have something cool to play with... ... but I know I'm probaly selling to all those bail out CEO's that always wished they could have a complete 1981 diecast Voltron NRFB... ... But whatever you finances, this is a money maker here. Lots of new transformer toys BUT the movie isn't out for almost 4 months. Buy now, sell later!!! Trust me!

I kinda like this thought...I could give you my 'guess' on what products are going to be popular/valuable in the future. like a stock picker...except with a product that goes UP in value...

Not wanting to BOG you down with too much information, so let's just start with one...the big one...that's right, MEGATRON! This awesome figure is cheap now but probaly be selling close to $80-$90 come mid June! If you see for under <$40, buy and save!

Watchmen toys and statues have been released!!!

Am I the only one excited to the point of frequent bathroom breaks over the Watchmen movie? ... *crickets* ... What? You don't know about the Watchmen? What rock have you been under? Obviously you havn't been under my rock! HAHA!

This is a bust from Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons masterful comic coming to movie screens everywhere come March! ROUGH story...what if we had Super Heroes for WWII? ... There is more to it, but if that don't grab you, what will? Want to see all the figures coming out??? Just click below!

You got Nite Owl, Ozymandias, Rorschach and Silk Spectre in this set. These are your main 'heroes'. Incase you can't tell by details and names, this is a variant of the DC universe. Let's see if wikipedia can summarize the story better then my ramblings...

"The story is set in an alternate 1985 where superheroes exist, Richard Nixon is still president, Vietnam was won by the South, and tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union are at an all-time high. The vigilante Rorschach (Jackie Earle Haley) is investigating the murder of a former hero, the Comedian (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), and uncovers a plot to discredit and murder various heroes. Rorschach discovers a far wider-ranging conspiracy involving his colleagues' past which could completely change the course of history."

Again, why havn't you bought your ticket yet? Still not convinced this could be the greatest superhero movie of all time? ... Then check out Dr. Manhattan in the black and BLUE! Doesn't look too threatning right? Click the trailer below and tell me if he doesn't rock!!! :)

Great comic, great movie, great toys...I think someone FINALLY got it all right!... But just incase, there is already customs appearing on ebay!!!

What goes down stairs and forms the head? Click for my top 5 toys!

OK! I"M DONE! That inventory took longer then I thought... So now, onto the toys? Any requests for reviews? ... I'm trying to think back. I have been asking people lately "What toy did you play with growing up?"...and I had the hardest time thinking an answer for myself. I had alot of toys, but mostly simple things... SO! Here is a list of MY favorite toys growing up!

So...top 5? I like top 5's!

#5 - Slinky - It's Slinky, it's slinky! Fun for a girl AND a boy...

I had the classic metal. I use to jump rope with that. THat's how REAL MEN jumproped, hehehe! I hated stairs...fell down them alot. But I would love having that slinky jump step per step...but if that slinky ever STOPPED mid way, it would ruin your WHOLE DAY!

Now you have metal, plastic, rubber, glow in the dark!!!

4 - Construx - The ultimate is plastic bars that hook into little blue things...

Am I the only one that played with these? It was the 'sophisticated' legos, cause, legos were for little kids!!! :) Ok, I had both. This was great because it was alittle bigger, mostly grey which added a 'robitic' feel to EVERYTHING. I use to make replica swords, primarily Thundercats. It heald up pretty good when used as a weapon too!

They had a ton of expansions but I just built my own ideas.

#3 - Weird purple grappling hook looking thing... It looked put a purple 'ninja star' with a rope on it, i think red rope. It looked... GI Joe-ish. I dunno what it went with, probaly got at a ard sale. It had a good 6 foot rope on it. Anything I could throw that on and grapple, I did. It was my secondary weapon when using a Construx sword!

#2 - Voltron - AND I"LL FORM THE HEAD!

I so loved this toy... I NEVER had one thou...but my friend did, and it was so cool. They all connected into a full size Voltron, then the sword and shield...and the head launched at a VERY high velocity that you could use to take out your enemies with! ... I once found an original 1981 die cast new in box at yard sale for $15, resold for $100 by next day... I was sad but, that's good profit!

1 - Pacman handheld Arcade Cabinet

I use to straight hussle guys at the laundry met at pacman, used the money to pay for the wash! My mother got tired of me bugging for quarters so she bought me a C64 with a pacman cartridge, and that started my computer addiction at age 5.

This is a picture of the one I had, but they had a ton of different variants! This one I've seen around $100 even on ebay. One day i'll find one cheap...and play it... ... then sell it!
