Vintage Star Wars ROTJ Ebay Haul - Biker Scout

Got this set from Ebay. Good news is this set is very decently priced. Bad news is the speeder bike have one broken flap. The seller described that it was never played before. The speeder bike does look new with all inserts and even the vintage catalog. Probably manufacturer defects? of the hazards in ebay shopping.. On the other hand, the biker scout is very nice and the card is mint, unpunched. I am still searching eBay for one very elusive Star Wars vintage figure.....

Transformers GariGari Robo Kun Ice Cream Convoy (Optimus Prime) and more...

Recently found a 'cool' reference to Optimus Prime - Transforming Ice Cream / Ice Bar GariGari Kun (Mr.Crunchy) Robo premium from Japan. It's a cute figure that transform from ice cream bar to the mascot wearing Optimus Prime helmet and attire. I saw three color versions so far - blue soda (which have the original Optimus Prime color), Cola (which have the original mascot costume color) and a limited edition grape purple color. The figure is wrapped in a re-sealable bag to mimick how ice cream bar is packaged.  It comes with a sword, shield and mini ice cream bar. It have a cool munching action too! The sword and shield can be stored at the back of figure. This is an official Transformers merchandise made by Takaratomy, the plastic is of decent quality and the transformation is fairly easy. If you're Optimus Prime fan, this is something worth checking out. Ebay price overseas about RM100-RM120 now.

At speedy video, found a Batman and Superman Animated bust coin bank. I believe this is a theme park exclusive figure. Well sculpted and painted, would recommend to diehard Bats and Supes collectors.

Finally just completed (for my kids) Transformers Prime toy premiums from McDonalds. Don't you hate Transformers that doesn't transform? If you buy these figures, you'd know what I mean..
