Collecting the Collector

ChocolateFrogs

You know what's great about having a friend who is extremely adept at making trades and scouring ebay for deals? He knows just how to grab something rad online. A few days later and bam!--Toa Lhikan Hordika puts in my hands the Collector, one of San Diego Comic Con's exclusive LEGO minifigs last year! (A trade, of course.)

He looks good with the team, and by team I'm including the proper Nova, of course. And Drax has his signature energy axe.

(A second thanks goes to xccj for grabbing me Rocket in his Ravagers outfit.)

 

What is really cool about the Collector is the backing of the case unfolds to show a large image of him, scowling (the other side of his minifig head). Not that any sane LEGO collector would display this unless there was a safe way to do so, but it's a pretty neat bonus.

But the exclusives don't stop there! I also have another benefactor: my manager who used to work at GameStop and snagged all kinds of extras for the LEGO video games. So now I have the exclusive Elrond figure and, better yet, Lex Luthor in power armor and, better yet, Plastic Man! Certainly exciting additions to my collection.

 

What's next? Making a display case for all of these (and my other exclusives)!

The Collector is sweet! I wonder if the SDCC Unikitty also has a card that unfolds like that? I really ought to stop making excuses and open that up...
