So here's a thing that happened to me today and was pretty exciting... I got some mail!
Of course, when I arrived home, I tossed the package on the bed, left briefly to see a man about a horse... and when I returned, this is what I found:
|"Yeah... we need to talk."|
See what we found in the package, after the jump!
Michael Lewandowski over at the super-awesome Memories of Toymorrow blog, recently had a giveaway. He wanted to celebrate his blog getting 10,111 pageviews, and to do so, he was going to randomly pick a couple of his followers who "wanted in". And.... jboypacman (the guy behind the also super-awesome Revenge from the Cosmic Ark blog) and I both wanted in... and we won! Out of the loot, I wanted a particular action figure, and a set of books. Michael sent the rest of the loot to jboypacman.
And today... my loot arrived!!! Let me tell you... with all of the packing, and paperwork, and the insane amount of stress involved in moving to a new home within the next week or so... winning this contest and receiving this package were like little smile-inducing atomic bombs in my brain.
The package was decked out in Michael's trademark trippy optical illusion from his site, and Donny was planted squarely on top to prevent any premature opening. Once we made ourselves a deal:
|"Some kinda body armor... he's human after all..."|
|Is that the New 52 Superman? |
No wonder someone used it as wrapping paper.
|"With our powers combined... we will... unwrap these... books."|
In a wild frenzy of shredded (oops... wrong choice of words) obliterated gift-wrap, the mysterious package was finally laid bare! A set of vintage TSR Dungeons and Dragons books! Included were The Dungeons and Dragons Expert Rulebook, and Dungeon Module U1: The Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh! Now I loooves me some vintage D&D almost as much as I loooves me some vintage Batman action figures!
Once the package was unwrapped and thoroughly gone through, the Turtles returned to their shelf, content in the knowledge that they would get a proper review on Goodwill Hunting 4 Geeks in the coming weeks. I leave you, dear followers, with this final shot of my ill-gotten loot, and also a final thank you to Michael over at Memories of Toymorrow, for rocking so gosh-darn hard!
I'll be back soon with more Goodwill Goodies, so keep your eyes peeled!
