Cool presents of 2010: My chemical romance

This presents thing is running a bit longer than I thought but what can I say? People seem to love me for some strange reason.

Some time ago I received a box in the mail, the box was from my good friend (and former high priest of geek) Reis. First of all I have something to tell you Reis, you can't retire from the Church of Geek, the Church of Geek retires you. Anyway, he didn't quit the game, he just got another (secret) blog to show of his toys. I can't tell you the name of the blog or add a link to this post, but HEY (that's a clue, check the links, wink wink), that's not my problem.

All I wanted from Reis was some help to get the only missing piece in my Batman: The Brave and the Bold Action League collection. The super elusive Chemo deluxe set. Well, he got it like it was nothing (thanks to his "enhanced toy senses" I was told) and sent it to me. The awesome thing about Reis is that when he sends you a toy, he doesn't just send you a toy. Check what I found when I opened the box:

But maybe I'm not being clear... Let me show that again, this time in slow motion and without the box:

(What were you expecting? A video? It's a still picture, there's nothing slower than that...)

But check that out! I got all kinds of goodies, including my very first Minimate, a wind-up ET, Vintage Ram-Man, a super articulated tiny Batgirl and Boba Fett! I was in Toy Heaven. And when I saw the main course I was in... Ehm... What's better than Heaven? New Genesis? Well OK... I was in New Genesis!

I mean, look at that awesome piece of plastic! He's not as articulated as Grodd who had ball joints in the shoulders and a removable helmet, but the detail, the expression, the tiny bubbles, Oh my Highfather, the bubbles!

I just love this toy!

And he loves me back... Or wants to kill me, whatever. This finishes the BBATB Action League line, Mattel decided to change it to DC Universe Action League, I'm waiting for the first wave of those, but they already did a White Lantern Sinestro and a Black Lantern Firestorm, that I'm not so happy about. I mean, I know Blackest Night was huge like, twenty minutes ago, but c'mon. a White Sinestro before a Green or a Yellow? That's lame Matty, super lame.

But don't worry, I'll still get them, but you can be damn sure that I'll complain about it. Because that, my friends... That's what makes me a true geek!

That, and the lack of personal Hygiene...

Until next time!

oh yeah, that Chemo IS great! Reis WAS good to ya

Reis O'Brien said...

Yay! I'm so happy that everything arrived safely and that you're having fun, especially with Chemo.

It's funny, I had only seen one of those once, and then you mentioned you wanted one, so after a little looking I found one and then never saw another again. It was meant to be!

I'm still sorry that I couldn't get that Larfleeze for you, though. :(

I know that the other stuff is kind of silly, but I thought you might get a kick out of them. :)

Take care, friend!

Chemo IS great, but i'm sorry, that vintage Ram-Man is WAY better. Very nice haul indeed Freak :) How're you enjoying your first minimate btw? You might find yourself condemning Reis soon, 'cuz those things are addictive and you WILL want more. lol

Alberto Martos López said...

That´s friendship actually.

Freak Studio said...

Super Duper: He wasn't good, he was great!

Reis: Don't sweat it for Larfleeze dude, you got me some seriously awesome toys!

Stephen: Yeah, Ram-Man is one of my favorite MOTU characters of all time. Had one when I was a kid, there's always room in my house for more He-Man.

Alberto: Yes, yes it is.
