Red DC Super Friends Party Cup From Hallmark

The local discount store where I work as maintenance started their going out of business sale last week. I picked up a red DC Super Friends party cup from Hallmark on sale for eighty cents instead of the one dollar normal price. The inside of the cup is red while the background is mostly yellow and gold. The DC Super Friends features Aquaman, Hawkman, Superman, Krypto, Flash, Robin, Cyborg, Green Lantern and Batman. This is an all-male team but I would have like to have seen at least Wonder Woman included. Unfortunately, the blue DC Super Friends party cup from Hallmark was already sold out and this was the store's last red one.

Yes, I have been looking for another job since the store is set to close at the end of January 2015.

Constantine's Short Season

According to NBC Hits Brakes On "Constantine," But Season 2 Still Possible, the tv series will only have thirteen episodes for season one and "remains in contention for a second-season renewal". I urge every one to watch the show if you have not done so yet. If you enjoy horror shows like Grimm and Supernatural, then you will enjoy Constantine.

Thrift Store Finds: Imaginext Dark Knight Batman

I call this the Dark Knight Batman since he's wearing the black costume. The only thing wrong with that title is his silly grin. He's another one of those action figures that Imaginext likes to put out in different play sets. He's the last action figure in the two dollar bag that I picked up at a local thrift store a few weeks ago.

Of course, the Imaginext Dark Knight Batman didn't come with any of his accessories.

T-shirt Thursday: Luke Cage Hero For Hire T-shirt

Rumor has it that an actor for Luke Cage and an actress for Jessica Jones are close to being picked. I thought that this week's t-shirt should spotlight the hero for hire in his early days at Marvel Comics when he still had hair:

Thrift Store Finds: Imaginext Bane

I'm not sure which version this Imaginext Bane action figure is since I found him in the two dollar bag with other action figures at a local thrift store a few weeks ago. I'm not even sure how many different toy  play sets or figure packs that he came with. All I know is that he's mine now.

Thrift Store Finds: Mysterious Imaginext Action Figures

I picked up these two mysterious Imaginext action figures in the two dollar bag that I picked up a few weeks ago at a local thrift store. Any help identifying them would be appreciated.

The first one looks like he could be a pirate captain or a swashbuckler since he's wearing a fancy vest:

The second mysterious Imaginext action figure could be a samurai or a circus strongman:

I'm not totally sure which Imaginext Ninja action figure this is from but he has a dark blue sash belt. I picked him up in a bag of assorted action figures a few weeks ago at a local thrift store for two dollars.

Thrift Store Finds: Playskool Jar Jar Binks

This Star Wars Jedi Force Jar Jar Binks from Playskool is another action figure that was in a two dollar bag that I picked up a few weeks ago at a local thrift store. He stands at 2 3/4" with 2011 Hasbro on the bottom of one foot. I like having him mostly because I don't have a lot of alien action figures.

I actually found this Marvel Super Hero Adventure Smash Mobile Hulk at a local thrift store a few weeks ago in a bag of seven other action figures for two dollars. He stands at three inches and is actually wearing an orange with black safety vest over his tattered white shirt. One foot is marked 2010 Marvel Inc. while the other is marked Hasbro Made In China.

Vending Machine Mini Green Lantern String Puppet

The DC Comics string puppets, er dolls actually arrived at a local store's vending machine a few weeks ago but I finally had three quarters to try my luck this morning. The insert card showed Superman, Batman, Green Lantern and the Joker plus a chance to get three other mini toys that I had no interest in. I held my breath and was relieved when a mini Green Lantern string puppet, er doll came out in his plastic bubble.

He is 2 3/4" tall and 1 3/4" wide. The string colors used to make him are white, green and black. His mask, eyes and power ring are made from thin felt. His chest symbol seems to be really thick felt.

The mini Green Lantern string puppet, er doll has a black string loop on his head with a label attached. One side has copyright DCE (I presume DC Entertainment), s13, and A&A/China. The other side has the occult number of 153938/153939.

According to my research, there are eight mini string puppets, er dolls in the set that includes Superman, Batman, the Joker, Green Lantern, Robin, the Flash, Wonder Woman and Aquaman. I doubt that I will try to get any more of these since I'm once again out of quarters. They seem like they would make perfect cat toys.
