My Black Friday Haul

Last weekend I went to Tate's for their annual  Black Friday weekend sale to see what I could pick up. I was contemplating a very reasonably priced Mechanical Collection Raideen when someone came in from the back and placed a bag of Godzilla toys on a peg right next to me. I took one look and immediately recognized the bright colors of the included Spacegodzilla. It was a bag of old Trendmasters toys, which you know I have great nostalgia for. I snatched the bag off the peg and got in line with my 20% off coupon.

I'll talk about Mothra first. This is definitely the worst of the lot. It's from Trendmasters' 6-inch line. Like most of the 6-inch and 10-inch toys, the sculpt leaves a lot to be desired. It also has bad balance issues. The toy tends to flop on its face a lot.

The rest of the toys in the bag come from Trendmasters' 4-inch line. Out of all the Trandmasters lines, I think the 4-inch toys had the best sculpts. Most of them don't have any moving parts (Mecha King Ghidorah's necks can turn, but that's it) but they look nice. Given the selection of characters here, I suspect that all these toys came from Trendmasters' 40th Anniversary Set. I will definitely be picking up more of these if I can find any.

Did I mention it was $20 for the whole bag?
