Legion of Superheroes goes Fast Food!

OK,now I’m really irritated. Sure, sure, you all know that I’m a huge Spidey fan, and love to collect Spidey stuff, but, I’m also a superhero kind of geek, and tend towards that side of the street. Well, as if that weren’t enough, I’m also a fast food guy, and well, when those three items converge, I’m so there!

Unfortunately, I just wasn’t there in August when McDonald’s offered up a set of Legion of superhero toys. I actually found out by accident when I discovered one of the trading cards that came with the set lying on the ground outside a pizza place that I frequent. Well, as soon as I discovered that the toys were old, I went on the web to locate a set.

I found one on ebay (a couple of other folk are currently bidding on it, but I’m thinking that I want to try and snag it for myself. More as this progresses.

Mewtwo is that image!!

I remember being so happy to get him when the first Poke movie came out and having his eyes light up with a turn of his tail.

Sometimes Wendys has some things that I don't know about that I'm interested in. I've seen them with Nintendo toys which was something I remember fangasming for back when Mario was at McDonalds (sometime after Super Mario Bros. 3 for the NES was released, if I recall).

Though it's not fast-food related, do you also collect stuff from the toy dispensers at grocery stores?

I saw Spider-Man stickers in one some time back, but I don't know if they still have them around.

Yeah, ever once in a while I’ll see Spidey-related stuff in the toy dispensers at grocery stores or elsewhere, and I’ll grab that stuff up too.
