Toy de Jour (213) - The Trash Pack blind package figures

I'm increasingly becoming interested in all of the "blind" packaging that I see at mass-retail as of late. Mooshi Monsters, Lego, Playmobil, Mighty Beanz and now (series 2) The Trash Pack by Moose Toys.  I bought two eggs but there's tons of sets; a garbage truck with trash can, collectors case, trash can packs and even dissolving reveal figure sets. 

I got four figures total (two in each egg) and I apparently got one Ultra Rare, two Rare and one Common figure.  Yay?

Toy de Jour (212) - Tokidoki Marvel Frenzies blind box figures

Not huge into Tokidoki as far as designer vinyl is concerned, but they've done really good stuff with their Marvel license. That image of Iron Man flexing with Tokidoki bullets bouncing off of him is awesome. So I picked up one of these little guys. They're supposed to be zipper pulls or whatever people use things like that for, and they retail for around five bucks. Not sure how many characters they did, but I ended up with...

Toy de Jour (211) - Panda-Z blind box figure

Another one of @andthankyou's toys that I've had on eBay. But this one after getting his picture taken sat on my desk instead of going into the tub of other toys that were for sale. He demands more respect than those other toys!

Toy de Jour (210) - Claudus Thundercats figure

Thus far he's been short-packed and rather hard to find. I'm not collecting the new figures but picked this up for a friend that's into the line. Though I do like the new Snarf and Kit & Kat figures.  If you haven't seen the show yet, do yourself a favor and find it on Cartoon Network or a DVD set. It's amazing, both visually and as far as storytelling is concerned. And as a cool tidbit, they have the original voice actor for Lion-O from the 80s cartoon voice Claudus (the father of Lion-O in the new series.)
