I Smell Toys and Candy

While this is primarily a toy blog, sometimes I'll cover non-toy stuff too.  Like candy.  CAAAAAAAANDYYYYYY!  I've always felt like candy and toys go hand-in-hand.  Sometimes people say they're like a "kid in a candy store", and other times they're like a "kid in a toy store".  Well, maybe the first saying is more common.  Anyway, one of the nice things about this time of year is that all sorts of cool and weird candies come out in the stores.  I really don't have much of a sweet tooth, but you'd never tell from this post.

Also, I've been buying cheapo Halloween toys like crazy lately.  I don't know why, but every time we go to a store I stop by the Halloween stuff and pick up some toys I don't need.  To be fair, I don't really need any of my toys, so it's a moot point.  Wait, I take it back!  I do need my toys!  Forgive my blasphemy, oh Toy Gods, I know not of what I speak!!!

Let's get back on track.

This time of year always has that extra special candy that you can't find at any other time (the weird stuff), and some cheap-but-still-cool toys come out too.  In order to keep this post toy-related, I'll show them off as well.

Barrels of Scum for Everyone!!!

I'm still alive, and I can prove it!

Things got a little crazy around here for a while, so not only have I not been posting anything lately (and fallen behind on AMAMOTM again), but I had to cancel my Florida trip.  So all that rushing I did to get my Vinylmation figures in the spotlight wasn't necessary.  But, what can you do?  Things are getting back to normal now (more or less), and while I wasn't able to travel, you can't stop me from buying toys!  One of my recent finds was this set:
