Holiday With All The Trimmings

November 27, 2008

Hot DAMN! So stoked right now.

Big Bad Toy Store has just processed my pre-order for Wave 13 of G.I. Joe carded figures in which a new line, Resolute, makes its debut; Also Vehicle Wave 4 (which premieres the Sting Raider (aka Water Moccasin) and the Ghost Hawk (aka Sky Hawk)) is being processed. That means in about a week and a half or so, more lovely packaged pics for all to enjoy.

So I am extremely stoked! And poor. So very, very poor.

In any case, Happy Thanksgiving!
