USA haul

Just went across the border for some shopping yesterday, got some items for very good prices. First we checked out a fashion outlet mall, ended up picking these up from the Converse store for about $20! Great deal considering these usually go for about $50-60 here in Canada. The laces are for another pair of Converse I have but the laces got chewed down by my dog.

Before going back to Canada, we dropped by a Target close by. I've always heard of their low prices for toys from other US bloggers so I had to check it out. The toy selection were alright and the prices were really nice for most. I also found out from the flyer posted out in the entrance that the transformers deluxes were on sale at the moment, so I literally ran to the toy department and was luckily able to grab these 3 new releases (last ones too!) for $10.25 each taxed-in! (these usually cost about $18 after taxes in Canada)

By the way, the WFC Optimus and BB are AWESOME! Their transformation to vehicle mode are complicated and fun and very well thought out, they look amazing and resembles their in-game counterparts very accurately! And I also just LOVE the Seeker mold, gotta catch them all! More pics of these three coming soon!

Another order from Amiami

I've been waiting for these for soooo long and they are finally here!!! Amiami has become my turn to place for ordering Japanese figures. Their prices are great and their customer service is excellent. Be sure to check them out!

The packaging looks very nice!

They also came with these 3D pieces too, possibly because I preordered these items.

Back of packaging showing the features.

Packaging opens up to reveal the figure and background(?) with beautiful pictures from the movies.

That alternate Woody face just cracks me up! It's gonna come in handy for some hilarious pictures!

It's Nerf or Nothing

Thanks to Leon at Open the Toy, I've wanted to pick up a Nerf gun for quite some time now. Browsing over SGNerf, the Longshot CS-6 stood out to me because I've always liked sniper rifles. Well I finally picked up the Longshot today.

I already had some fun with target practice with my figures haha. It is actually quite fun, an inexpensive solution for some shooting. I am not very fond of the scope it comes with though, I don't think it is any use except for looking cool. Also wished it came with more darts (only 1 clip with 6 darts included). I really need to get some more darts and clips, did a search online and found a pack called "Flip Clip", looks like it comes with 2 clips and several darts. I think that's the pack I am looking for, didn't see any of these where I got the gun though. Anyways I think I am going to look at some simple mods for it later and probably give it a paintjob.

I would also like to pick up another gun with a fasting firing rate, possibly the Maverick? Any recommendations?
