As usual, it was delightful, because I managed to find and pick up figures that I didn't expect to find or in some cases, had been looking for but just did not find.
The 'fair' on 23 August 2009.
There were many highlights of the day, the key among them being a Marvel Legends Series VI Juggernaut figure from E as a present! I have been looking for this figure for some time because it would sit (or stand) perfectly next to a small gallery of my favourite rouges - Thanos and Darkseid.
My haul for that day, includes many exciting figures and dvds:
- Marvel Legends Series VI: Juggernaut
- DC Universe: Crisis series Batman (figure 24)
- DC Universe: Crisis series Batman (figure 34)
- Transformers Sureshot
- Transformers Crosshairs
- Transformers Quickswitch (courtesy Fatbot)
- Transformers Carnivac (courtesy Sky Shadow)
- Transformers Scrapper and Hook guns (just for fun)
- a Star Wars playset (don't know its name)
- Transformers Spotlight: Optimus Prime comic (courtesy I_am_Trunks)
- Rann-Thanagar War TPB
- The Matrix DVD
- Matrix Reloaded DVD
- Matrix Revolutions DVD

23 August 2009 haul
Transformers in Star Wars land
I bought the Star Wars playset basically as a backdrop for my 3.5" Batman, Snake Eyes, Storm Shadow, Wolverine, Gambit and Maverick to live and fight in. I didn't know a thing about it. When I bought it, I asked the seller "so, what is this playset called and where is it of?".
The guy, clearly a hardcore Star Wars fan answered "It's a vintage Star Wars playset from the 1980s", with the how-could-you-not-know-this-young-punk look in his eyes. I think I must have offended his Star Wars sensibilities.
Someone, please, tell me the name of that playset (pictured above).
