Something New and Something Old

I was able to get some Manga in to give me something to read. I picked up Fairy Tail 19 and Tegami Bachi 9. It has bee a while since I got anything since my unemployment. I just missed the relaxing times of reading and really needed to catch up.

I did find out some good news - I can link my America Express Points to my Amazon account. With this wonderful bit of news, I was able to get even more manga. I was able to pickup Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan 9, Rosario+Vampire: Season II 9, Soul Eater 9 and Fairy Tail 20.  Holy Crap, this was a month full of "9's". I think this is a good sign.

I had to go over and dig through my boxes to see if I could something for my wife. While searching, I found some things that I thought were lost due to a fire many years ago. My son was excited as he is getting into the Zoids again and I found several Robo Strux I had.

I brought Brutox home for him, but left Terox, Gordox and Radox in the bin. I would have to re-assemble some of them and really don't need all that in the apartment. Even after 25+ years, Brutox was up and moving when I added the batteries. Maybe one day when we have finally settled, they will be out once again and roaming around.

I also was able to find some old Bandai Combiners. These were from the mid 80's and really brought back some memories. I still need to find the name of one of these as I don't have the paperwork. But the other one I am sure you will recognize. I hopefully will have some reviews up in the future, but am happy to know that these are still with me.

I have a cosplayer interview this week, so I need to review to insure it is all setup.

Let me know if you have had any 'lucky' discoveries when digging in old boxes.


  1. You got redundant? omg thats sad to hear :(

    I wish my hsbc card could do the same with the point and amazon lucky!

    1. I should have something shortly and be back in a job.

      It was great being able to order my manga without having to actually pay anything.

  2. I think that's a vintage chogokin Dancougar! It's a gem!

    1. Yes, that is exactly what you noted - Bandai Dancouga from 1985. I thought it was lost in a fire, but found a storage bin with some of my older toys.


Don't just Read and Run, leave me a note about what you thought of the blog!
