Then, last year in Target, I saw this.
Just an innocuous, innocent little thing. And only $7, which made it ever so easy to impulse buy. I let out a deep sigh when I saw it. I knew then and there that I was back in, because there was no way I was walking out of there without it. And this thing isn't a one-off deal, it's part of an entire line of classic monster-themed sets.
So, over the next few months, I wound up getting this.
And this, which I simply adore.
Then this thing, which I got for a very nice price on ebay since it only included the train itself(which was all I wanted, I already had all the minifigs from other sets, and could do without the plane).
Then the topper, the king of them all, THIS. (Cindy included for scale.)
It deserves its own post. You'll get it in a few days.
