May you now find peace my friend...

There's things that I can't leave alone'Cause they won't leave me aloneWhat I want ain't what I needStill I reach for the things I craveThen try to run awayAm I afraid of being free'Cause when I'm not chasing demonsThere's demons chasing me~ Kenny Chesney


May you finally find the peace and serenity that eluded you on this earth.
Rest in Peace Robin Williams, perhaps my all-time favorite actor, you made every character you touched come to life, on the big screen or small. I will miss your comedic expertise and brilliant acting.

I now own 35 individual puzzle pieces from the Teenymates Series 1 MLB figure set.


I am still missing 5 of the base figures  and 2 rare chase figures from a complete set, but I am happy to show off a completed puzzle:

Happy 4th! Let's go Surfing!!

My local Wally World started carrying some of those blind box figures here recently. And this was the first time I had seen the Marvel Bobble heads.


I just had to take a chance... everybody's hoping for Deadpool,


He's the rarest of the bunch at 1/144..
except me, I wanted Dr. Doom. Me being  a long time Fantastic Four fan. They come in the same size boxes as the rest of the mystery figures do, and the same black plastic baggie inside as well.

No, I didn't get Thor, though that would have been cool and Mrs. Dawgbones would've stolen him right away! So, who did I get?


the title did give it away... yepper, not too shabby... at least the 'ole Silver Surfer does have a "four" tie-in.
And I'll happily add him to my collection, and probably buy a few more in the near future as well!

Have a GReat 4th!

P.S. with the typical Fireworks displays this weekend, please be sure your pets are adequately and securely guarded. They generally do not enjoy the pyrotechnics like we do. Make sure they have a safe place in the house to hide out from the festivities.

Teeny WOO HOO!!

So,
I am so close to at least completing the puzzle from the Teenymates Series 1 set that I took another chance on a single pack from Target while we were there shopping the other night.

I got two duplicate puzzle pieces, 1 duplicate figure, and...



The second of four rare chase figures!! This time it's the Throwback Brew Crew! and very cool indeed!
that still leaves me needing possibly four puzzle pieces (I am working a trade right now) and 6 figures!


I also have many figures and pieces to trade if anybody is interested...
I have the following figures available:
LA Dodgers (4)
Oakland A's (3)
Texas Rangers (3)
Cleveland Indians (3)
San Diego Padres (1)
Washington Nationals (1)
Pittsburgh Pirates (1)
St. Louis Cardinals (1)


and need the following 6 Figures for a complete base set:
Los Angeles Angels
Arizona Diamondbacks
Detroit Tigers
Kansas City Royals
Tampa Bay Rays
and of course my beloved Philadelphia Phillies

I also have the following pieces available for trade:
Atlanta (1)
Seattle (1)
Tampa Bay (3)
Astros (1)
Brewers (1)
Washington (1)Blue Jays (3)
TES (3)

and these have been sent north in trade:
