More Harry Potter Kinder Joy Funko Pops

The local Walmart's restocked the Harry Potter Kinder Joy Funko Pops earlier this week. I picked up a few more and managed to get a few new ones. I now have Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Dumbledore. I'm still on the hunt for Snape, Luna, Cho and Professor Trelawney.

Women Wednesday: McFarlane Toys Super Powers Wonder Woman 2023

I picked up this McFarlane Toys Super Powers Wonder Woman 2023 action figure yesterday at the local Walmart's as part of my birthday present to myself. I'm hoping they get figures of other women from DC Comics like Black Canary and Catwoman.

By the way, Happy Valentine's Day!

McFarlane Toys Super Powers Nightwing 2023

To celebrate my 59th birthday, which is today, I bought this McFarlane Toys Super Powers Nightwing from 2023 this morning at our local Walmart's. They don't get very many DC Comics related action figures so this is a rare treat.

Hot Wheels Batman v Superman Batmobile 2024

The third and final Hot Wheels that I picked up at the local Dollar Tree last week was this Batman v Superman Batmobile. It's a rerelease but with blue wheel rims (the original had all black and I have it too). This is #1 of 5 in the Batman subset and #2 of 250 in the main set.

Hot Wheels U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701

This Hot Wheels U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 was found at the local Dollar Tree a few days ago. Of course, I had to pick it up even though I'm not a big Star Trek collector. This one is based on the rebooted movie series.

Hot Wheels Monster High Ghoul Mobile

I was shocked when I found the Hot Wheels Monster High Ghoul Mobile at the local Dollar Tree yesterday. The local Walmart's don't even have these yet. I don't normally collect Monster High stuff but I had to get it because it was Hot Wheels. This beats the larger one that can actually fit four of the Monster High dolls (No, I don't have any of those...yet).

Harry Potter Kinder Joy Funko Pops

I think the Harry Potter Kinder Joy Funko Pops were supposed to be out last year in time for Christmas. However, I didn't find them until the first week of January. From my research, there is supposed to be twenty-four mini figures in this set. I only have five different ones plus three doubles. I have two of Hagrid, two of Hermione, one of Draco Malfoy, one of McGonagall and two of Mad Eye Moody.

The backs of all the inserts only show seven mini figures, which are Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, Professor McGonagall, Hagrid, Dumbledore and Snape.

I was finding them near the checkout lanes at the local Walmart's and Dillons. However, I only found a few left at Walmart's and none at Dillons last weekend.

February is Black History Month and DC Comics released DC Power #1 yesterday. On the cover are eight black superheroes in the DC Universe. There are ten stories in this anthology one-shot special. First up is "Enduring Farewells" featuring Green Lanterns John Stewart and Jo Mullein. Next is "The Spice of Life" featuring Black Lightning's daughters Thunder and Lightning (Steel and his daughter are guest stars). Raphael Arce aka Bloodwynd aka the Superman from Hell stars int he third story titled "Pit Stop" (this one is my favorite). "Pure Blackness" features Calvin Ellis aka the black Superman of Earth-2. The fifth story is titled "Lost at Sea" and features Black Manta. Crispus Allen aka the Spectre stars in "The Session" (Renee Montoya aka the Question guest stars making this my second favorite story). "The Natural Order" sees Nubia helping Mr. Mxyzptlk. Kid Flash is featured in "Jump Shots and Loose Watts" (Red Arrow appears towards the end). Mister Terrific is the focus of "Fair Play." The Signal fights Chronus and takes a trip to the future in "The Light That Shines" (my third favorite story). As an added bonus, there are Who's Who files on Val-Zod (Calvin Ellis), Black Manta, the Spectre, Mister Terrific and the Signal. Overall, this was an enjoyable special collection of stories.

Alice Cooper #4 Covers

Alice Cooper #4 came out last week but I didn't get around to reading it until today. I listened to his Road album while reading it. Alice Cooper meets the Pope in this issue before playing round one against Lucifer. This mini series concludes next issue.
