Stunt Zombie's Christmas Loot!

My apologies for not posting sooner, but my fiance and I have been gone for the past few days. It's been a great holiday season, and I wanted to share the spoils with the rest of you.

It was a toy-filled year for me, and trust me, that's not a complaint.



Lego! I was excited when I saw the Desert Skiff, then I got REALLY ecstatic when I realized it comes with an updated Boba Fett. I've started getting a little fed up with Hasbro's handling of the Star Wars license, so I may just have to collect the Lego versions of my favorite characters. That Kraang Lab Escape set is one I've had my eyes on for a while now. It comes with my favorite Turtle, Michelangelo, and one of the Kraang aliens. Of course, for me, it will always just be Krang. The Halloween set is another one I wanted, mainly for the zombie figure. Now that I know the ghost glows in the dark though, he has moved up to my number two favorite spot.


Speaking of my favorite Turtle, Chelsea bought me the new version of Michelangelo from the Nickelodeon series. This really is an awesome figure, and I'll go into a bit more detail about him in another post.



I almost forgot about these little guys. Chelsea bought me a replacement Boba Fett for my keychain, because as you can see from the guy on the right, they really take a beating on a keyring. The guy in the second photo is a magnet, and it is the newer more detailed version. I'm still trying to figure out where I'm going to keep him, since I'm not sure if sticking him to the side of my computer is a good idea. Those cookies behind him were another one of my gifts, since I'm a bit of a butter cookie addict. Thank goodness it's a small tin, otherwise I'd weigh three hundred pounds by New Year's Eve.


This is Yoda from the new Star Wars Saga series. These figures are less detailed and articulated than the either the main line or Black series. They're pretty much an updated version of the older Kenner style figures. Five points of articulation, and fewer paint apps mean these cost half as much as the other figures.


I don't have the Tomb Raider game for the 360, but now I have the controller, and it looks fantastic. I love the random scrapes and scratches on it, as well as the convertible D-pad. I can't wait to give it a go with some of our new games. Speaking of, I didn't get shots of them, but Chelsea's sister gave us Lego Batman, and Lego DC Super Heroes, as well as Zone of the Enders HD. Yep, we won't be going outside much this winter.


I always seem to get a bunch of books, music, and movies, and this year was no different. I've heard good things about both of these books, and I'm loving the new Goldfrapp cd. As for the movies, The Last Starfighter has always been one of my favorites, and I feel like I owe it to myself to finally watch Dune from start to finish.




Booze and candy, such a great combo. I never thought of mini bottles as stocking stuffers before. Now I realize that I've been missing out. As for the candy, these pictures don't even show half of the stuff that was hiding in my stocking. I might end up toothless and obese before New Years Eve yet.



I also received a nice leather wallet, since mine was getting worn out, and an Axe bath and body set. Believe those commercials, kids. What do you think I used to snatch Chelsea, my good looks? Nah, it was all in the Axe.


Star Wars mug set, with cocoa mix. Because everything tastes better out of Star Wars mug, especially one with Lando on it.


I've read about this stuff before, but I'm reluctant to actually use it. I'm afraid to see what kind of crap it's going to pull out of my keyboard. Sometimes it's best not knowing what's living in there...


I'm not sure how I've never owned a Leatherman Micra before now. It replaces the pliers found on the full size models, with one of the nicest set of scissors that I've used. It also includes several other implements, meaning my Victorinox Minichamp is going to have some serious competition on my keychain.


I saved the best for last. This right here is why I decided I wanted to marry Chelsea. She read my League entry from a couple of weeks ago, and tracked down a rather nice example of Tiger Electronic Pinball. I popped a couple AA batteries in, and it was 1990 all over again. It was perfect for killing time on the ride home today, just like all those other trips we took in my childhood.

There were some other items I received this weekend, such as clothing, coffee pods, and a nice seat warmer, but I wasn't able to get any pictures of them. I have to say, it really was a great Christmas this year. Not only do I have a wonderful fiance, but I received some great presents as well. I hope everyone else had a great Christmas this year, and I look forward to seeing what kind of loot my fellow bloggers found under their trees this holiday season.

I hope you all have a Happy New Year!
