Marvel Hero Mashers Vision (Clear)
I've wanted a Vision Hero Masher for awhile. I'm kind of choosy when it comes to which Mashers I buy so when I saw that Vision would be included in a gift set with a bunch of Avengers guys I didn't want I was a bit let down. The gift set Vision was the normal opaque colored figure, and pretty cool looking. I just didn't want to lay down $50 for it. Word then came of a single pack Vision being released, and in a very striking and dare I say beautiful clear translucent colored plastic. I added that to my want list immediately. I had never seen this particular figure in the store before finding this one, but I did have a chance to pick him up online and failed to do so. Hasbrotoyshop listed the figure for a brief time before it went to out of stock status and ultimately removed from the site. I recall seeing it on the site and thinking "Oh man, it's there! I need to get it!" and pausing, only to go back a few weeks later to see it was sold out. There was Ebay too, but wasn't going to pay $20+for it.
So my poor timing didn't hurt me much as I got the Vision finally for $6. In hand the toy is even more cool than the promo pics had alluded to. If you have a Marshall's or TJ Maxx bear you it's worth checking them out. They have also been stocking some of the other later,harder to find guys like Thanos and the clear purple War Machine.
Transformers Combiner Wars Swindle
I buy extras of things all the time, I don't know what my hang up was here, but it was strong enough to keep my from buying Swindle for months. When I found him at Marshall's for $9.99 it was an easy buy. Yes it's just $6 less, but still $6 that I think anyone can agree on it a good savings. What I can't see many agreeing on is that I almost picked up a duplicate Hound at the same time which would negate everything I was trying to do when passing on Swindle for all those months. Luckily I came to my senses and only got the one toy. Although the Vortex did briefly sit in hand as a possible purchase before I realized that would lead to another $45-$55 in purchases for sure.

Titans Return Astrotrain
The robot mode is great. The vehicle modes are kinda meh, but I'm in my 40's, let's not kid ourselves and say I'm doing anything more than standing him on a shelf or desktop. Love the head sculpt, and the Titan Master overall. The Darkmoon name needs some work, but I can deal with it. Will be nice too see if a Blitzwing does materialize to pair up with this Astrotrain.
Titans Return Alpha Trion
The Titan Master head likeness is amazing.The robot mode of the Master is cool, but like Astrotrain's Darkmoon, the name Autobot Sovereign doesn't do much for me. But man is the sword accessory an awesome addition. Love the clear plastic use here. Overall, in the same vain as Astrotrain the Alpha Trion robot mode if the best looking one. Although if I had to pick, I might say Alpha Trion's Wolf/Lion mode may be the best of the 4 alt mode options between the 2 toys.
