Toys and Cereal

So after depositing my hard earned money into my poor starving account I decided to treat myself to a new pair of headphones that I was desperately needing... then I ended up buying a shit ton of toys and also a pair of headphones. I'm an adult, I swear. 

I didn't buy this though, even if I was really tempted. Apparently Thomas the tank engine is fighting Cthulhu now. Look at this amazing play set and  the "battle damage" Thomas it comes with. I wasn't really into "Thomas & Friends" as a kid, but I did watch "Shining Time Station". I feel a little gypped. 

I'm a huge fan of the small rubber toys from Moose, and I got a few more "Grossery Gang" toys for my collection. I'm a big fan of the dopey faced chair and the rubber duck with poop on its head. 

So I admittedly have too many Funko "Pop!" figures but... I think I'm finally done. I don't say that with much confidence, but I feel now that I have my Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot "Pop!" figures I can honestly say I have a void in my heart that's been filled. I can't stop staring at them; they're just perfect. I've been waiting decades for figures of these guys.

I also nabbed a Funko "Mystery Mini" of Frogger, and I have to say it's a huge joy having this guy too. It's like the perfect Frogger figure. It's emulating the art from the side of the arcade cabinet. I love this original game, even if I'm terrible of it, but I'm a huge fan of the PS2 era games even if they're far from perfect.

And Lastly, my girlfriend surprised me by buying me all three Halloween themed General Mill cereals. What a joy. I'm still a little burned that these are seasonal now rather than an all year choice, but it does make them a little more special. In any case, I can't wait to eat these as midnight snacks.
