Skids was an impulse buy because I saw him. Then I got Snarl shortly after just to complete the movie Dinobots (which I'm not even sure anymore I should have ever started...). So Transformers this month were kinda meh .. It's the last wave of 2014 I really wanted but could never find, and with Combiner Wars showing up now (and I'll probably never see some of the ones I want most there too *sigh*), who knows if I will?
Fox was also on impluse, but he's definitely at the low end of "hard to find" Amiibos, so I still didn't want to miss him. He was found during my hunt for a Little Mac, which was actually successful. The Gamestop I got it from had just one. So personal experience is definitely backing up the prevailing trend and I feel pretty confident blaming Nintendo for the intentional wretched distribution and intentional scarcity of these. Just not pleased with them. Zelda and Luigi I really did want and only did see that one time too. Unfortunately I never saw their other wave mates, so probably won't now. And the incredibly common 8 from the first wave I still haven't gone after, but probably will soon. With my luck I'll start after they're now hard to find lol.
Red magically and randomly got listed on Amazon just a few days before I was flying home for the holidays. I couldn't pass on him though. Just look at how cute the starters are! So he got shipped to PA instead of TX and didn't get in the group picture heh. I can't help but love the little guy.
Last but absolutely not least, my first little foray into BIONICLE 2015. Sets didn't show up in any of my stores before I left and I wasn't about to hunt while on vacation, so I'll be late to the party in getting sets proper unfortunately. But this start is incredible and half of it completely unexpected. Thank you, DV. Thank you. They've really got me excited for the new line and getting back into constraction.
Not going to do a big end of the year update on the collection this year since, well, I'm just not with it heh. Still on holiday. But I want to do a beginning of the year one... after buying a new bookshelf or two... so be on the lookout for that.
