Star Wars Epic Battles Medals

Anyone else participate in the Toys R Us epic battles online game? I passed during the Christmas season because I really didn't need to play another online game. Then they brought it back to get rid of the extra medals and I decide to try it. Turns out it's just a Where's Waldo type hidden picture and you only need to find 5 things to get the certificate you trade in for the medal at the store. So really this was more a hunt for a location that still had all the medals.

Can't beat free.

I saw these generic brick figures at Target. Hilarious Lego Avengers knock-off figures. Bowl Cut Thor! Low Rise Jeans Hulk! Whatever the hell the Iron Man figure is supposed to be!

Shy Guy

I wasn't certain how to feel about the entry of Shy Guy in the world of Nintendo line of figures. I really like the mini figure from the K'nex line of figures, but the world of Nintendo figure is out of scale with the other WoN figures and has limited articulation. But seeing it in person I knew I had to get it because it's a giant Shy Guy and that is awesome. Plus it turns out that it has more than three points of articulation because each of its feet are cut joints, so really it has five points of articulation even if two of them are very limited. But if world of Nintendois willing to count a head that doesn't move as a point of articulation they might as well count this as well.
