It was another successful toy/pop culture collectible hunt and it’s time to share what I’ve bagged. Join me fellow pop culture junkies on a journey of spending money on junk!

Toy-Hunt_Challenger_Robocop

I found this 1:18th scale Dodge Challenger cop car at Toys R Us. Not only does it make a really sweet accessory for action figures, I own a Dodge Challenger and I think it’s awesome buying toys of a car I have. Now it’s temping me to paint it up in cop colors and put a ram bar on the front.

Toy-Hunt_Halo_HotWheels

These Halo Hotwheels vehicles are great. I’m not really into Halo anymore, yet I still appreciate the aesthetics of the human vehicles and technology. I plan on using these in our roleplaying games to help visualize the battlefield. Obviously, that means I probably need some more of these.

Toy-Hunt_nunchucks

I found a pair of acrylic handled nunchaku aka nunchucks at an antiques store for the low price of eight bucks. They’re basically a conversation piece, because they’re not that practical. They also kinda look like dildos…

Toy-Hunt_RPG-Books

And while we’re on the topic of role playing games, my girlfriend has thought about running a DS9 rpg at some point. I did the nice thing of buying her these Star Trek rpg books to supplement her possible future plans. I also got this Star Wars canned adventure book, to give me ideas for future Star Wars games.

Toy-Hunt_StarWars-ReturnoftheJedi-Popup-Book

Finally, I got this Return of the Jedi pop up book. It’s got the usual problem with pop up books where a few of them are broken, but there’s a bunch of them that are working just fine. It’s a pretty cool little book. I love how the cover of the book is relatively plain. Now days it would feature some hero characters prominently in explosive action.

Toy-Hunt_StarWars-ReturnoftheJedi-Popup-Book-2

This pop up makes me laugh. Look at that tie fighter. That’s from A New Hope, not Return of the Jedi.
