I sold a collection today, and got cash as well as store credit. The store credit covered one of these:Image
It's a promo poster that came with FOOM, a Marvel mag that gave behind the scenes info about the bullpen and info on upcoming books.
The poster was drawn and inked by Jim Steranko! It looks gorgeous on my wall.

A DVD set called Death Race: 4-Movie Collection that has the unrated (or, in the case of the fourth film, "unrated & unhinged") versions of all four films in the second Death Race series. These, I presume, are the director's cuts of the films. It also has the R-rated theatrical version of the first film, but not the R-rated direct-to-video versions of the other three films.

Personally, I could've done without the aforementioned R-rated film. However, if it had to be put in, at least they should've put in the other three R-rated films to make the set really complete. They could've put the four pairs of the series' films on four discs, one for each pair, in one case, instead of the three discs that were done, which had the R-rated and unrated versions of Death Race (2008) on one disc, the unrated versions of Death Race 2 (2010) and Death Race 3: Inferno (2013) both on one disc and the "unrated & unhinged" version of Death Race: Beyond Anarchy (2018) on one disc. Oh well, one can't have everything, I guess.

Btw, I've also got the first Death Race series - two films titled Death Race 2000 (1975) and Death Race 2050 (2017) - on two separate DVDs.

A few days ago, I got a book I bought as a Christmas present from me to me: Fearsome Weirdos Family Omnibus No. 1, which contains five trading card series (Fearsome Weirdos, Fearsome Weirdos: Harvest of Horrors, Startling Lineup, Fearsome Weirdos: Kaiju Creeps and Fearsome Weirdos: Ghouls of Yule), as well as a Kickstarter mini-set (Weird-Ass Faces). It's by Robert Jimenez.

As of next year, he's working on another series titled Fearsome Weirdos: Haunted Heaps.

Last year I got the Secret Labs Magnus Desk which is metal desk. The company also makes accessories for the desk so I ordered the RGB Lightstrip which should be here this week and I preordered the headphone hanger accessory which should be here in about a month.

My PC set up is nearly complete. I want to get a new monitor, something between 27" or 32" and the only requirement I want is HDR. Thankfully though some of the monitor companies have some decent monitors coming out this year. I'm looking at the LG or Asus 27" 1440p OLED monitor as I have a 55" LG CX OLED TV and have been very happy with it. There's also rumors that a 32" version will get announced. Finally, I'm going get a Secret Labs Chair later this year and my setup will be complete.

I finally bought an Xbox Series X. It should arrive at my house by the end of the month.

I also bought the Rebirth of Mothra trilogy on Blu-ray.
