Look what my parent’s found in storage! McDonald’s “Changeables” Happy Meal Toys I thoght these went the way of most McDonald’s toys we had – the $0.25 bin at a yardsale. This is “my half” of the collection. Brian has duplicates of most of these, but lacks the french-fries, where I’m missing the milkshake. They’re in pretty rough condition – they were left in a leaky garage in a box. But that’s nothing I can’t clean up with some qtips, rubbing alcohol, and a lot of patience.
Karen Picked up the 15in Tick Doll still in his box (though slightly sun-faded) from The Earth on the same trip that I got Optimus.
Then, having been bitten by the collector bug, she bought the 3″ figurines on Ebay. I hung them on the wall in our hallway today. No, the pins don’t go through the cards, but some of them had previously been pinned anyway.
Note the row of evildoers is surrounded on both sides by rows of superheros.
While kitten-proofing the house, I bought and installed some shelves for the toys and models I’ve been collecting.
My feature toys are the [b]Anniversary edition Optimus[/b] (see left bellow), and the [b]used Optimus[/b] that I found at [url=http://www.theearthtoymall.com/index.html]Earthcollectible[/url]. He is the same model as the first toy I ever purchased. (see right bellow)
The other shelves have some Gundam Models that I built while bored to tears during the week-day evenings in Wisconsin, as well as a model of the Dalorean Time machine, and some of the new Alternators Transformers.
