A Look Behind The Scenes Of Alexis' Treasures

MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT! MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT!

UPDATE:
 After a lot of thinking, I have made a hard decision: After this year's 31 Days of Halloween Celebration I will be putting this page on hiatus! However Alexis' Treasures will continue on Instagram as the place to see Kara pics and toys! I have already started posting on there again! For the spooky side of things, I will start adding new content (not just re-blogging stuff) on my Halloween Treasures Tumblr Account!

 So why this decision? Truthfully? On those platforms I don't pay attention to how many see my posts, mostly because they are quicker to do and I have just lost that spark. Hopefully I can regain it by doing this.

 So is this blog closing? No. I will be leaving all posts up and leave this site as is. Also I might return from time-to-time to post, especially if I want to do an in depth article or review as those wouldn't work on the other platforms I am using!

  Will this be the last "31 Days of Halloween" Event? Nope. I have the intention to return every October regardless of if I ever return permanently! I absolutely have a blast with the countdown!

  Anything else? I plan to do a few posts before October but It won't be as many as I used to do, but again just go to my other blogs and you will keep getting my posts! Also I am thinking of possibly using Facebook in the future as well!

JOKER BEAST

  Last month I found the Joker Beast from Funko's Primal Age line.  I had been wanting him but never could pull the trigger at $25 but for $8? Ok.
  This guy is great. He has no articulation, but then again neither did Battle Cat, Panthor, or Clawdeen.
  Funko did a great job on him. His sculpt is great.
  I was not sold on the throne but in hand, its not as bad as i feared and keep it on him.
  One thing is he reminds me of a Dewback from Star Wars.
  In case your wondering how he looks with certain lines here you go: Vintage MOTU
  Neo-MOTU (Super 7)
  Funko ThunderCats
  Funko MK
  Funko Zorn
  Funko Horror
 Well thats it for now but more posts to come soon!

BEST LOCK? YEAH RIGHT!

 Last month I stumbled across a bagged set of Best Locks. I grabbed it right away as it was not only Star Gate but only a buck. 
 Best Lock are a line of Lego like blocks. I hate saying they are knock-offs but in this case I would use that name. Unlike Kreo or my favorite block series Megaconstrux, these are crap.
 Don't get me wrong, I love this set as a display piece but everytime I handle it, it falls apart.
 That and look at the mini figure. Yuck. He looks fine with the helmet but unmasked? not so much! I mean the cockpit can't even close with him in it! Also he doesn't sit well in it either!
 I don't really complain but this was pretty bad. Would I get more? yes if they were the right price but otherwise? No. I saw another bagged set (this one a generic set not stargate) and passed cause it was $5 and after this Dathglider set, I felt that was way too much!

123....Vintage(ish) Party!

Thanks to Brother Midnight and the new reissues, I am amassing a nice collection of the vintage Transformers sculpts. As someone who loved the Transformers but only had a handful of them, this is a great time for me!
 Hot Rod's packaging art. All the single images are rereleases.
Hot Rod 
Warpath
Gears
Outback
Swerve
Tailgate
 A shot of the above bots together.
 Perceptor, G2 Grimlock, and a vintage targetmaster!
Hot Rod ambushed!
I saved Bumblebee for last because this was the bane of my existence! Bumblebee is 3 per case but was impossible to find! Why?
 Because not only is he one of the most famous tf's now, but this is the first time that ha has been available in the states with the cartoon accurate head!
 As you can see I have all but Prime in the Autobot releases and none of the Decepticon ones lol. That's it for today, more to come soon!

Imaginext Power Rangers: Revisited!

 Not much to say but here is a look at the Imaginext Power Rangers line. Sadly this line ended last year due to HAsbro purchasing the Power Rangers property. While the actual toyline has gotten much better than Bandai's run, the young kid line is worse. Playskool (owned by Hasbro, Imaginext is Fisher Price which is owned by Mattel) now makes them and by pics they stink. Sadly I have seen 0 of the small figures in stores, though I did see some big figures from Playskool. So this is a look back at a great line that ended too soon.

 One note: I own every unique character from Power Rangers except for Finster, Squat, Baboo, the mini Megazord, Alpha, and Zordon. I also do not own any Zords except for what is shown here. They did add some monsters from their space line and blind bags and also did a Zedd Putty - all of which I do not own as I only saw them once at Target and some are now extremely rare!
The original team:
Billy Cranston
Jason Lee Scott (or could be Rocky DeSantos if you prefer)
Kimberly Hart (or could be Katherine Hillard if you prefer)
Trini Kwan (Or could be Aisha Campbell if you prefer)
Zack Taylor (or could be Adam Park if you prefer)
 A new member joins.
Tommy Oliver
The Thunder Megazord (figure size)
A new leader enters as 3 Rangers leave and later another does as well!
Tommy Oliver with Saba and the Tiger Zord!
Goldar
King Sphinx (A monster of the Week)
Lord Zedd
Pirantishead (A monster of the Week) and putty patrollers
An evil union begins!
Rita Repulsa
Scorpina
Titanus
 A note about Titanus and why the carrier zord is on the bottom! I just got him. Sadly he was without the original Megazord (but thankfully I had the Thunder Megazord so the looks good (even though they were never in the same seasons as Titanus was in Seasons 1 and 3 and Thunder Megazord was just in season 2!) I found him at Goodwill and was excited as He is my all time favorite zord (second up would be either the Dragonzord or the Tigerzord! Thats all for now, more to come.
