Yardsailing: Weird Toys, Mystery Transforming Figures and The Big Question... Is The Pope Catholic?

Whoa new banner!

I stopped at a few yard sales this weekend. I had such high hopes and ended up spending $20 on some weird board games, weird toys, and some stuff for the kiddies.

Click through the jump for pictures of all the good stuff (and the bad stuff) and once again, help me figure out what I actually bought.

Not sure who these are, and not sure why the middle one has robo-boobs. I paid 50 cents for all 3.

I picked up a Lego table filled with Lego parts for $5.00. There were some cool boat parts, but the best part was about 25 minifigs. None were really that special, but it was a super deal. 

These are Nak Naks. I paid $2.00 for all of them.

 I remember buying a bunch at Toys R Us around 8-10 years ago, and I briefly remember them being part of kids meal toys as well. The kids meal ones were much cheaper, and their heads didn't twist. I love the designs on some of these. They were definitely clinging on to the early 90's style.

And finally... Is The Pope Catholic?

I paid $1.00 for this game. It's described as "The only board game where YOU can be the Pope" 

The cards were pretty amazing.


  1. those block army guys are fantastic

  2. I can't decide if ''Is The Pope Catholic?'' is intended as a parody or if it really is an ''educational'' game...

  3. Great score on those minifigs. The secret is definitely out on Legos--they are hard to find at yard sales now and seemed to be the first thing that gets scooped up in the early morning hours.

  4. I think it's important to point out that J looks immensely smug in that banner.

  5. Suzanne, you bet I do!

    I think the pope game is trying to be both. I've peeked at the cards and rules but haven't been able to play yet. When we play I'll do a write up.

    And yes, it's getting harder and harder to find Lego lots at yard sales. I used to get them all the time.
