Valvotron. Battlestar Galactica

Weekly Wednesday Haul – Square Boxes Edition

So last week I didn’t have a haul, and this week, has a few things but it’s not really anything major.  Partially there’s been a bit of a drought for anything I care about, partially, it’s the moving thing.  I did get an alert on CamelCamelCamel that the World of Nintendo Metroid was available for an affordable price, so I snapped it right up.

Still in the bubble wrap.  Mostly because well, moving, that rubber bubble is probably a dirt magnet and the safest way to transport it seems like it will be to just keep it in the box for now.  It will be freed eventually, I’m not some crazy MISB collector.

I also happened upon something else that’s square and box shapped with this pretty sweet Battle Star Galactica complete series set of DVDs.  I kind of wanted to watch this show and it came with this nice Cylon action figure.  It was $6 at a Resale shop, seemed like a steal for the cool box and the Cylon alone.

Lastly was an unexpected surprise, today I recieved a Valvotron figure in the mail from Valvoline.  I wasn’t sure if I’d actually get this guy at all.  Originally Valvoline posted they were running a contest, buy 5 quarts of oil at a Valvoline store, or send in a card, and get entered to win one of 5000 Valvotron figures.  I don’t have a Valvoline store nearby so I mailed in a card.  A few days after I mailed the card, Valvoline changed it to just be “Buy 5 quarts and mail to get one”.  No more contest.  I guess I won anyway, there was even a letter stating as such, so sweet, Valvotron.  He doesn’t transform, though he has bits implying he turns into an oil can.  The figure has 4 points of articulation, hips and shoulders.
