... to talk about what you want! Oh a topic after my own heart! Here's the topic in all it's glory:
When you hit up the toy store, thrift store, flea market, or comic shop, what are some of the things you’re actively hunting?
Well dear reader, click below and find out what I'm currently coveting with my black heart full of toys and dolls with colorful hair. So much colorful hair...
First thing I'm actively hunting are those blasted vintage Monster Cereal boxes at Target. I am utterly appalled that the Target stores in my area still refuse to set them out. I know they are in the back because one of the lovely employees went to the back to find some for me. I know this makes me out to be an uppity snobby bee with an itch, but it wasn't like that. Being a girl has its perks. All I needed was a smile, some mascara, and good hair and the Target guy was totally fine with finding some vintage Monster Cereals in the storage area. I had requested a Fruit Brute and Frankenberry, but all he could find was Count Chocula, Yummy Mummy and the Frankenberry. (I turned the Frankenberry down because the box was dented. Yes, I know exactly how that sounds.) Anyways, I keep holding out that I will see them soon. All of them.
So what's next, what other things am I hunting? Well, I am on the hunt for the latest Jean Grey Marvel Legends release. I'm a sucker for early 90's X-Men and as much as I love the whole Phoenix look, I love Jean Grey in her yellow and blue body suit with big red hair. I love big hair.
I also am on the hunt for a Kim Arashikage from the G.I. Joe Retaliation movie. I know the toy line has faded from most stores, but it's Jinx in a bright yellow suit. How cool is that? Actually, not that cool because she is going to be even more rare than a new Emma Frost. Which, incidentally, I am also hunting for.
That's about it for new things. There are some vintage items I am also hunting. Ever since my post about knock-offs and Golden Girl, I have secretly been purchasing Golden Girl action dolls on eBay. I only have three so far, and I am very picky when I get them because I refuse to spend a large amount of money on them. So yeah, I am kind of on the hunt for more Golden Girl. I have certainly been bitten by the Golden Girl bug. In fact, there will be some Golden Girl posts coming up really soon. I actually am enjoying them and wish I had collected them when I was younger. Nothing compares to She-Ra of course, but I do like the idea of Golden Girl and She-Ra sharing the same universe.
Anyways, I suppose the next thing I would be hunting for are various books, essentially some Fear Street, Christopher Pike, Sweet Valley High, and L.J. Smith's Night World series. I wish I could say I was busy reading all the great literary classics as a young teen, but let's be real, my heart was consumed with the thrills and chills of Fear Street.
So that's about it for what I am hunting. Let's see what other League members are wanting to add to their collections.
