My pal, Derek over at Goodwill Hunting 4 Geeks, sent me a fun package the other day filled with awesome little bits of plastic. The great thing about small items, is that you can put a lot of them on the shelf!
On a recent yard sale hunt, I found this cool orange creature and Derek happened to have a few of his friends in his collection, which spawned the trade. These guys are ready to party!
The detail on this King Kong ornament is excellent — and it roars! You can bet I’ll be sneaking this guy onto the tree this Christmas.
They say if you have three of something, you have a collection. Well, it looks like I have a collection of James Bond Aston Martin DB 5’s now!
Thanks for another awesome trade Derek!

Derek told me to expect a package from him as well. Looks like your did not disappoint.
I’ve got a box of stuff for him as well, but I’ve been having a tricky time making my way to the post office.
Great assortment of figures there! I remember those rubbery dinosaur lookin toys 😉

Wow Brian, your photography makes these toys look amazing! I’m glad you liked the package, as I had the King Kong ornament and James Bond car were set aside for you before our trade was even set! They came out of my yard-sale bin of AWESOME that I never finished writing about…
Anyway, I love those rubber lizard guys, but as soon as I saw the spiky one you found yard-saling I knew they all had to be together. I was more that pleased by this great trade and hope you feel the same! Thanks again!
Thanks again Derek. I only highlighted a few of the items here, but believe me when I say that everything was appreciated! You can never have too many spacemen, and those How to Train Your Dragon figures are really great — my kids already swiped them. 😉
