This Week's Happenings

Boring, boring, boring. I added some new stuff to my collection, though. I managed to score a Spider-Man bust for five bucks on eBay, a Hasbro Knight Striker Batmobile (the one used in the Justice League cartoons), a Justice League Unlimited Rocket Red, Sin City Marv and Kevin figures, and the McFarlane Sports Michael Strahan/Donovan McNabb set. Hooray for toys.

McFarlane apparently has a NY Giants three-pack coming later this year, featuring Strahan, Tiki Barber, and Plaxico Burress. I'll have to get that, too, and I still haven't got around to getting a Peyton Manning/Eli Manning pack. Now they have a second version of Eli coming in 2006, so with that, the Jeremy Shockey, and the Lawrence Taylor, I see McFarlane NFL figures taking up a significant amount of my space in the near future.

I'm still eager for the convention at the end of the month. We're getting July 3 and 4 off for the holiday, so I'm taking some of my vacation time on June 30 to make a five-day weekend of it. I'll probably see Superman Returns a couple of times, and hopefully get some rest and read lots of books on Monday and Tuesday.
