Rustin's Spoils of the Week #213

Man, I had a pretty fortuitous weekend! I went out and hit a couple Walmarts, Five Belows, Walgreens and Gamestops - and came home happy, only to find my set of Super 7 Masters of the Universe Classics figures waiting for me! I so rarely find new stuff and stuff that I end up thoroughly enjoying so this particular haul is quite joyous because there is some really, really great stuff in here!

Two-- no, THREE surprising pieces of Toys "R" Us news

First, The Washington Post reported that two of the three owners of TRU have set aside money to give the ex-workers severance pay:

Bain Capital and Kohlberg Kravis Roberts - two of the three firms that bought Toys R Us in a 2005 leveraged buyout and loaded it with billions of dollars in debt before liquidating the chain in June - are setting aside millions of dollars in a fund to be distributed to retail workers, according to a person involved in the negotiations who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Venom Marvel Legends: Carnage review

Merged with the toxic Venom symbiote, Cletus Kasady hones his psychopathic tendencies as the merciless villain, Carnage.

Well, this is super disappointing. This figure is basically the same as the one that came in the Amazing Spider-Man 2 line - you know, the one with the Ultimate Green Goblin BAF. It's so similar, we're even reusing the same photo for this review. The paint masks are the same, the tendrils coming off the body are the same... the existence of this toy makes that old one garbage.

In today's review of Typhoid Mary, yo included these pictures of her modern look:

But he failed to include any pictures of her classic costume. So here, direct from the '80s, is how Typhoid Mary used to dress:

That's a Marvel house ad on the left, and the cover of Daredevil #256 (recolored for 2016's A Touch of Typhoid tpb).
