Latest Purchases #60
I LOVE A Goofy Movie. It has incredible animation, a fantastic soundtrack, and it's just a wonderful film about a father trying to bond with his son when he's at that age where kids want to distance themselves from their parents. I should have picked up A Goofy Movie ages ago, but I guess I was waiting for the right price and $10 is tough to beat. It has some nice bonuses on here as well like two episodes from Goof Troop, one of my favorite cartoons.
Speaking of cartoons I adore, I finally got around to picking up TaleSpin Vol. 2. Wal-Mart had a new shipment come in and I figured it best to just pay the $10 to buy it in store rather than pay an added cost for shipping at Amazon. Just one DVD set shy of the whole series, and I recently learned Disney released the final 11 episodes on a two disc Vol. 3 set back in August. I hope the other Disney Afternoon cartoon series get the wrap up treatment.
Wal-Mart's bargain bin is becoming one of my best friends. It says $20 for most things in there, but when I run them through a price check, a lot of them come up at $10, like Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition Remix and the ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection. I already have the PS2 vrsion of Shadow of the Colossus, but not ICO, so it was another reason for me to pick this one up. But for $10, I would have grabbed it even if I already did have ICO.
I love me some plushies and it seems like it's been a dog's age since I bought one. With it being The Year of Luigi, I thought it best to give the man in green his due before his older brother. So I got Squirrel Suit Luigi and Tanooki Suit Luigi. Most of the plushies I've been getting over the past year have been bought online at Amazon and they've been imports, like the two above. A lot of these plushies aren't sold in stores but I imagine you can find a lot of these in Nintendo's store in New York. Both of these plushies were nearly $20 each but hey, it's Luigi and if anyone is worth it, it's him.
