Woo Hoo! Octopunk's last box arrives
I mailed four boxes to myself when I was in RI last month; the first three arrived the following week and the fourth one took three weeks to get here. And the gorillas managed to break the casing on my Cuisinart, dammit! And I don't care how gay that sounds.
The good news is my toys all arrived safely, including the glorious Thunder Cab pictured above (pic snagged from eBay since I don't have a camera anymore). The rest of the box was filled with my action figures that don't belong to vast categories like Star Wars or Marvel. This endears them to me in a special way, because I think it's the strange nooks and crannies of a collection that really reflect the collector.
Whatever, I'm glad they're here. The only action figures left in my East Coast storage space are the handful of Disneys, all the Alien related ones (in a box with the Alien Queen Playset), and some others I threw in the Alien box because they had antennae atop their heads and that box had lots of room at the top. No squishy antennae! Basically it's a few Antz figs and NM-E, guys like that.
Of even more note, the bulk of the figs' accessories still languish in the dark. It's amazing how many figures just don't cut the same slice of cool without their stuff. You can bet your ass I won't use the Post Office for that haul.
