Toy de Jour (209) - Man-Bat Batman figure

I'm not sure which line this came from as this is not really my figure but one that I was selling for @andthankyou. But he's always been one of my favorites. He looks pretty menacing in every pose you put him in. His wings are pretty impressive too when fully extended.

Toy de Jour (208) - Moshi Monster Waldo

I've heard a lot about Moshi Monsters in the past year, mostly that they were popular, but I didn't know why. Now I know why. They are awesome. I picked up this blind box (bag) Moshi Monster toy at TRU for $1.99 and was really happy with the one I got. Now there's a bunch more that I want just by looking at the ones on the back.

Also, if you go to the site and register, there's a cool little guy that follows your mouse curser around and if you let him get close, he'll (CHOMP!) eat it. It's pretty awesome...

Toy de Jour (207) - Playmobil Fi?ures (Blind box assortment 1)

As I've mentioned, I'm really starting to get into some of the weirder Playmobil figures. The new blind box (or bag) toys they've started releasing has a ton of really cool figures in the line. And since they're in bags, it's easy to feel around in them while still in the store and get exactly one ones you want. Case in point;

These guys are awesome! Is that a mummy that had an accident?! I don't know but it really doesn't matter. These guys are great! I have a few more from this line that I had before these guys, but I didn't post anything on here because I wanted to wait until I got the ones I wanted. The other really cool thing about these Fi?ures is that there's a boy and girls assortment each wave. That's a huge plus, don't go mixing any girl toys in my collections like Lego did! (I bought one of the girl ones too...) 

I received a catalog from Playmobil recently and saw the next two waves of these figures which look amazing. Such a great idea. I'll continue buying, that's for sure!
