Yesterday was my birthday, and one of my favorite things to do (...brace yourself...) is go to the flea market. So I went! I had originally intended to go alone, since 'alone time' is a rare commodity when you have a toddler, but my cold cold heart melted upon looking the forlorn faces when I headed for the door, so the Mrs. and my intern ended going with me after all.
So when I discovered through hand signals and grunts and cuneiform that he was willing to sell the figure alone, and for a mere dollar, well...Jabba isn't the only guy who knows a good bargain when he sees it.
I was also able to find most of a Batman minifigure - and he appears to be from the first series of LEGO Batman releases. Unfortunately I could not locate his cowl in any of the LEGO ziploc bags the vendor had. I did however find Two-Face's hairpiece. So for fifty cent, I have a slightly greying Batman. Which is apropos since it was my birthday and I will neither confirm nor deny a few grey hairs.
