I was able to pick up a brand-new Robin from GameStop. (where they have been re-stocked extensively, all the GameStops I visited recently had seven or more) I had already imported the elusive Robin, so now I have an open figure and a mint-in-box. I had missed out on Robin and Lucina on their initial run simply by being about one place too far back in line, so the rarity on those two figures always rankled.


I pre-ordered all of the upcoming Zelda figures. That was a foregone conclusion for me. Huge Zelda fan, and they included an 8-bit iteration of Link. They might as well have just reached directly into my wallet.

Yeah my kids have used one of the PS4 controllers we have on their PS3.  It is a real thing.


That's pretty rad, I'll have to try that. I don't hate the DS3, but I feel strongly that the DS4 is far superior in its ergonomics. Always found it to be considerably more comfortable to hold and use, despite the truncated battery life.

I was not aware that the Dualshock 4 can be used on the PS3. Is that actually true? I know that either the DS3 or DS4 can be used on the PSTV, but I was always under the impression that only the DS3 can be used on the PS3.


It doesn't make a lot of difference to me, as I have plenty of Sony controllers at the moment, but I am curious.

I went to two Gamestops on my way home. The first didn't have any Green Arrows left. The second had some, but refused to hand them out for free, insisting that they were meant to go with the Starter Packs. I decided to haggle a bit, and they agreed that perhaps a Green Arrow could be handed out if I were to purchase a Lego Dimensions Team Pack instead of a Starter Pack. I walked out of there with a Gremlins Team Pack and a Green Arrow minifig. The Toys R Us I stopped by hadn't restocked their Dimensions selection yet, so I'm counting this one as a win.

The 40% off sale at Toys R Us is ongoing until the 3rd of December. I'm hoping to get a few more of the recent releases after they re-stock. I stopped by my local Toys R Us last night and was able to get the Adventure Time Team Pack, as well as the Ghostbusters and Fantastic Beasts Story packs. Sadly, most of the other material that I wanted had been bought out. I went in late, so it wasn't much of a surprise. If they re-stock before the sale ends, I should be able to get most of them. I had already snagged all of the Fun packs that I was lacking early on the buy 3 for $20 deal. So all I'm lacking is the new Team and Level packs. I really want to get my hands on the new Gremlins Team pack.
