I was tempted on Harley, especially with the Grodd BAF, but the $11 price tag turned me off. I have a gorgeous statue in almost the same scale that I paid the same for a couple of years ago. That ain't right.
I got Inferno, Brawn, and Beachcomber early last week, along with the
DataMainframe/Beach Head and Apprentice Snake Eyes/Hard Master comic sets from HTS. Brawn and Beachcomber are a lot nicer than I expected. The MF/BH comic is okay, and the new BH (unmasked!!) is awesome. Both the figures in the other set are mediocre (SE looks like a straight Storm Shadow repaint, and Hard Master has a hole in his chest from whatever figure he shares a sculpt with) but the comic is one of the best of the bunch. Haven't opened Inferno yet. I think it's amusing that he's supposedly a G2 homage figure, since G2 was almost entirely repaints, but they have to have some representative of that line in the 25th Anniversary line.
I've passed on Breha a few times now. I really was looking forward to her, but the figure looks like ass. It looks like it's supposed to be the same character as the 2000 Shmi figure in a different outfit. And we all know Breha is infinitely more doable than Shmi.
Today I hit several Targets, mostly looking for candy. (It's funny how a single snowflake on a package means it has to be clearanced out as soon as possible after Christmas.) I got a Big Bird/Snuffy plush set on clearance for A Jr, along with a Superfriends gift set with Batman, Robin, a second Batman, the Batcopter, the Batplane, a Robin cycle, Joker, a Joker vehicle, Mr Freeze, and a "working" freezing chamber. She loves Batman, and now she has her own Batman figures to play with. I started to get a single-carded Penguin, but he was $6, and that seemed insane when the massive set was only $21.
Two of the Speed Racer Target exclusive three-packs had unique cars. These were on clearance. I got them, figuring I'll give her the extra Racer X and Speed cars from both sets. Also got a third set (which was all reissue cars) for my sister-in-law's nephew, who had no toys at all until we got him a remote controlled Tumbler Batmobile for Christmas. I feel bad for him; nice kid, but his mom just doesn't buy him anything. (It's a weird situation with that bunch, but I think the kids shouldn't suffer for their mom's decisions.)
The big ol' set of Speed Racer cars that came out right before Thanksgiving and almost immediately went on clearance, with two more exclusive cars (be thankful, mabs, you're not collecting these--the number of Target exclusives that weren't publicized at all would drive you nucking futs), was still at $12.58 (the original markdown price). They had a bazillion. When it gets to $8 or lower, I'll get one. I don't even recognize the two new cars, to be honest, so I won't feel like I'm missing too much.
