Think I'll take a review of the stuff I got this year:
Managed to get the two sets I wanted, more for minifigs that for actual builds. Not a bad set, but definitely underwhelming
While in China, I (we?) stumbled upon a wild Toys 'R' Us. Although the prices were crazily high (130 RMB for the Battle Suit alone!), my relatives (uncle-aunt) insisted on purchasing sets as a good host (I hadn't expected them to actually purchase the sets though). The bike was my brother's, although I recall maybe
encouraging that purchase over the other one(?).
November-December (IDK) 2017
Got exactly what I wanted, though the CMFs were an afterthought. Went with them because I'm sure squid guy would be a lot worse.
Following my abysmal finals and during a full-day exemption, I decided to take a break and buy Dawn of Iron Doom before going to see The Last Jedi. The Iron Doom was out of stock, unfortunately (didn't expect any stock, to be frank), and while I ended up seeing TLJ the next Sunday, I did still manage to get a pretty good set. Master Falls worked pretty well though, and (bag-feeling helped) got Jay and Cole to round off the team (sans Zane).
Christmas haul. Jay's Jet was also my little bro's. Also got a fantastic book:
If you don't know what this is, search Google. What to Google? I dunno, try "Nova Express" or something else.
So yeah, current collection +WHAP notes to cover off my garbage fiction collection (I've gotta get rid of those). Should fill up when I finish building everything, and I'm sure you know what's going into that hole in the Bounty section
