Amazing Spider-Man movie Walmart exclusive figures (Hot off the Keyboard!)

While browsing my local big box department store, I just noticed the latest released Wal-Mart exclusive Amazing Spider-Man figures. This figures are around 6 or 7″, much larger than the previously released figure line. There are only three figures to get in the set, but may have more released. Check your local store to see if they are available in your area!

Tupac song “Pain” exclusive – Above the Rim soundtrack LP

Sorry for the delay in posting, I am very busy and have a lot on my plate at the moment and unfortunately my blogs get pushed to the back burner in circumstances like this.

With that here is, as promised, more cool Tupac memorabilia and collectables. Personally I think this item is just freaking awesome! I can only imagine how scarce something like this is. Even more astounding is the price I paid for it, just $10. I was flabbergasted when I got it at that price.

The reason I hold this item so dearly is because it is a promotional only record, so it wasn’t made for mass consumption.

Past that I have no idea where it really came from other than it was manufactured by Interscope Records.

Combine that with the fact that it also contains a Tupac Shakur song, Pain, that is totally exclusive to only the LP version of the film’s, Above the Rim, soundtrack.

So you can’t even get this song on the CD version of the soundtrack and it is certainly not available for download on iTunes, Amazon, etc.

So is there any other reputable way to get this song? If so, I haven’t found it yet. I’m not really sure why this song is so exclusive or why the LP seems to be so scarce.

And the few people that do know of it’s scarcity (like myself) don’t even have to pay what would be considered very expensive prices to own it (although I have yet to see another for sale).

Maybe it’s a bootleg or otherwise knock-off but I wonder for that price is it really worth it? Which leads me to have faith in it’s authenticity.

I do know if I will ever have the chance to actually meet Dr. Dre and also can plan to bring this record with me but I would definitely like to present it to him and ask him about it. Scoring an autograph on it as well would really be cool.

Regardless this is a really cool find for many reasons and it’s officially kicking off my vinyl LP collection. What a start!

Collector Edition Cereal?

Yes, you read correctly. Cereal that is “collector edition” (We cover as much collectables as we can here at MC). Take for instance this box of cereal used to promote the 2012 Summer Olympics. Kellogg’s, taking every opportunity to cash in, by making it seem as if this box of cereal is something to collect and preserve is pretty interesting while appealing to the heavy interests in the 2012 Summer Olympics, particularly for Team USA.

So what makes this cereal so collectible in the first place? Is it just because the cereal itself was made? Is it because of the special foil box that it’s packaged in? Is it because of the trading cards that can be cut out from the back? Maybe it’s all of them. I’m sure Kellogg’s would agree to them all and then some.

So I decided to purchase a box (well after the Olympics have ended), because they were on clearance at my local grocery store.

 

 

 

 

Honeycomb cereal

How did the cereal actually fair as far a being purely a cereal and not a cheap gimmicky promotional product to cash in on? Actually, pretty good! I have to say the cereal tasted great, it reminded me of the similar taste with the Honeycombs cereal, or how I tasted it last I ate some (it’s been over 10 years since I last had Honeycomb cereal, so maybe it’s not the same now?)

Collectible cereal, I wouldn’t count much on it as an investment. Although, boxes of unopened Pac-Man cereal sell for serious dough sometimes! Pac-Man Cereal
