Just got this email from John Morrow at Twomorrows, and I thought I'd pass it along to all of you. These are really great prices, especially for the Digital Edition!

Let's see what photos I have to share with you this time... although first a reminder, these aren't things I actually own myself (unless I say otherwise)... so if you see something cool you've got to have, I'd recommend searching on eBay (where I first found these)!
Yes, that's right, today marks the five-year anniversary of The Random Acts of Geekery! Don't have anything in particular scheduled to celebrate it... but I would like to thank all of you who read this blog, whether it's daily, every couple of days, or whenever you've got an extra couple of hours to kill! It doesn't matter if you're a new reader, or one of those few who've been here from the very beginning, I appreciate you all!
A very good friend of the Random Acts of Geekery, Ramiro from Argentina, has been sending me photos of some very cool superhero toys available in his part of the world since October, and I figured it was high time I show some of them off to you guys!
First up is this Batmobile with Batman and Robin, as well as a Batcycle with Batgirl! Kind of makes me wonder why AHI never got around to doing a Batgirl Batcycle!
These Fantastic Four-related stickers look to be part of a larger set, and I hope Ramiro will send me more of the rest of these!
Batcycle with capeless Batman!
Batboat by Gulliver (I believe Gulliver made all the Batman toys here)
These bottle caps were available on Pepsi bottles down in South America!
Here's a poster checklist (or maybe two different posters for two releases) for all the Marvel ones! I'd love to see all these bottle caps!
A couple of posters for the DC caps, which makes it obvious that they were intended to be used as checkers!
And lastly, but nowhere near least, here's a Batmobile that Gulliver made that included Wonder Woman and Batgirl instead of Batman and Robin (along with another Batgirl Batcycle)! It appears to me that the figures were designed for riding motorcycles, which means there should be a Wonder Woman motorcycle out there!
Many thanks to Ramiro for sending me these photos! I hope he'll send me even more, and I'll try to make sure I post them much sooner!
