I have never really been a Black Friday shopper. I know many people where Black Friday is as much of a family tradition as Thanksgiving itself. I have nothing against it, I just rather spend that time eating left overs and decorating for Christmas. This year could be different though, thanks to Lego. You see their highly anticipated 1989 Batmobile will go on sale Black Friday. I know there is the internet and I could just order it online from the comfort of my home, but where is the fun in that?
So, I was at the mall this past weekend and decided to swing past the Lego Store to do a little recon. The guy working the floor was just as excited as I was when I asked him about it. He replied, “I got a surprise for you, we just finished building it.” He then ran to the back to grab it so I could drool on it in person. (more…)
I wonder why Funko calls it a “mystery” box and then do a spoiler video telling everyone what is in it. My theory is that they are all the same, unlike last year’s Gamestop boxes. The Walmart ones are DC themed and you can check out the screen grabs below. They will be available in select stores and at walmart.com starting November 21st. I didn’t pick up what the retail price is, but I am guessing $20-$25 range. Oh, and they will all come shrink wrapped, so no peeking. (more…)

Black Friday is still a week away but many retailers aren’t waiting that long to start sales. A lot of consumers are planning on shopping from their computers and Amazon already has daily deals going to capitalize on that trend. If you are brave enough to venture out on Black Friday it would be a good idea to head over to Gamestop. (more…)
