#38: Pokemon - Squirtle vs Charmander


Somewhat surprisingly, this is the first time I've had Pokemon toys to post about here. Thanks to Go and Sun/Moon, as well as my ongoing attempts to catch 'em all in Pokemon Shuffle, Pokemon has been taking up more headspace than usual lately. There are these two packs of little non-articulated Pokemon, so I went with two of the original starters, Squirtle and Charmander. The original starters are some of the most iconic Pokemon, and I usually pick the water type starter, so I chose this set first. Both Squirtle and Charmander have a small hole on the bottom of their body, as if for a stand. There are no stands included, but they don't need them anyway.

#37: Marvel Legends Series (12 inch) - Deadpool


Because Deadpool is having a surge in pop culture awareness due to last year's movie, he gets to be the fourth figure in the current 12 inch line of Marvel Legends. I was impatient, and got it when it was first available, but I should have waited because it is currently being marked down in stores. Oh well! Overall, this is a good Deadpool figure. There are a couple swappable heads: one battle damaged, and one standard. There are several different hands: fists, hands with trigger fingers extended, a burrito holding hand, and a thumbs up hand. And a burrito. I'm digging this trend of including food accessories. His swords are removable, and there are a couple of large guns and knives. Sadly, the pistols in his holsters are not removable. But that's not all that's included, there is also a second figure: Headpool. Headpool's propellor actually spins, and there is an included stand to keep him afloat.
