The Honeypot: more Hot Wheels, Bowen and MU!
Aside from the Hot Wheels, nearly all these items were purchased online, which serves to illustrate the sad state of action figures in my area. Hot Wheels... never would have imagined I'd be buying these this often at this point in my lift. So jump ahead to see what came in this week!
I've been on a real Daredevil kick as of late. I picked up the "Greatest Battle" pack a couple of months back when I not only wanted him for my budding MU collection, but realized that I barely had any DD figures! That may not be exactly true, I have both the Hasbro ML versions and had one of the Spider-Man Classics figures for years until just recently selling it off on eBay. Looking beyond figures, I picked up a few Bowen DD items last week and continued this week with some prominent ladies in Matt Murdock's life: Elektra and Black Widow.
Between the DD, Bullseye and Elektra mini-busts, I'm noticing I really dig this format for statues. The waist-up, arms posed style of mini-busts delivers lots of emotion. I don't have plans to collect every mini-bust Bowen releases, but the Wrecking Crew set are four I would absolutely LOVE to add!
And that concludes this week's Honeypot. I'm still sitting on a "pile-of-loot" from BBTS and a couple of items are making their way across the globe to me courtesy of Ewan at Chase Variant, so watch for those in a future installment.
This week's Honeypot:
1. Psylocke Marvel Universe
2. Daredevil (Shadowland) Marvel Universe
3. Wolverine (X-Force) Marvel Universe
4. Elektra Mini-Bust Bowen Designs

8. Whatta Drag Hot Wheels Boulevard

Until next time, happy huntin'!
