Mimetic Polyalloy


My wife gave me several “coupons” for our anniversary, one being for a trip to Target for toys. Tonight she suggested I cash in the coupon, but I wasn’t sure I’d find anything at Target. The shelves have been pretty bare at the locations near my house, so she sent me to Toys”R”Us. Who was I to argue?

I found the donut head T-1000 for $14.99 and the glitter dreams T-1000 (which I’m not sure I was even aware of) for $9.99. The T1000 with Hole in Head (the figures are labeled as T1000, without a hyphen) is clearly labeled as 2015 Summer Convention Exclusive, and I knew the T1000 Frozen Patrolman was at least somewhat special as he’s not one of the five figures listed on the cardback. Toys”R”Us also had Sarah Connor and John Connor, but I figured these two T-1000 action figures would be harder to find than the core 4 or 5 figures from the line, so I picked up these two.

With tax, I went $1.25 over my $25 budget for the night. My wife said she would take it out of my next paycheck. Boy, is she strict.

  1. Another option is to buy clear acrylic discs and use a drop of superglue on the sole of one foot. Though the superglue will ruin a spot on the sole of the foot, there are advantages including the discs having very clean edges (they resemble cut glass), no unsightly branding (looking at you, ProTech!), and of course no worry about pegs not-quite-fitting. And the price is slightly lower. Bags of clear acrylic discs are on ebay in various thicknesses and diameters – 2″dia. x 1/8″ thickness works well for Funko Legacy figures (maybe go up to 3″ dia. for characters like Jon Snow if posed holding heavy swords out).
