I can't believe that I forgot that today was MOTU day (Thank You very much The Toy Box for reminding me)! I mean MOTU is not just one of, if not the absolute, favorite toylines from my childhood, but also one of my biggest displays as it has 3 shelves (vintage, 200X, and Classics/modern)! Since I couldn't feature my vintage figures (SPOILER ALERT: Monday's posst and the first "official" post from "Alexis' Treasures" will be a sort of combination of three features here: Shelf Spotlight, New Arrivals, and Vintage Childhood as it will focus on not only my vintage shelf, but have memories and spotlight the figures I had as a child and I even have some that I just got!), I chose to go with my current Classics display in my living room before I disassemble it and move certain figures into a new display and others into a box.
Hope that you enjoyed this quickly made post for MOTU day!
Sorry for the image quality, the lighting in my living room stinks.
Oh and beginning May 8, I plan on returning to my regular schedule of posts M-TH And sometimes Friday! Next week I planned to, but I've been busy remaking my collection room (yep I have one again 😺), so there might only be one or two posts next week!

Are you ready?
Starting May 1, this blog will be changing! All new features and some that I ceased to do due to lack of interest! All new blog name! Its's time to FINALLY go back to basics and make the blog that I want!
Get Ready for:
- Shelf Spotlight: Wondering how my collection now looks? In this feature I will spotlight a shelf or display.
- Vintage Childhood: I spotlight 5 toys from my childhood that I have gotten back and are now in my collection once more!
- New Arrivals: Formally Toy Hauls and is now weekly and that means hauls will be split up a bit to last longer.
- Book Reviews (mostly vintage kids)
- The Return of Toy Reviews!
- The Return of Vault of Memories!
- The Return of random images!
- The Return of Fast Food Premiums! (this one ended way back in late October!)
- The Return of It Came from..... (magazine ads)
- and much much more.
Due to this, I will be going on hiatus to get the articles ready. Many of you told me once that I should be writing what I want and you know what? here we come. Welcome to my treasure chest!

Ready for another Goodwill haul?
After an ok month last month, I suddenly found so much greatness this month!
Jafar with Ilago, Goofy, Belle, Fro-Zone, a Sofia (that I already had but couldnt leave her lol). I also found for 99 cents that Disney Infinity TRU exclusive Crystal Lone Ranger figure that I needed. In fact,the crystal figures are the ONLY ones I was missingin the Infinity 1.0 figures!
Anakin, Luke, Obi-Wan, and a speeder bike.
I ended up going back to Goodwill later on in the month and that haul will be coming soon in part 2!
