First I stopped at a discount store ware they sell new unsold or damaged package goods from the big chain stores. All were new with the Tag on the leg but i get them to be game pieces not collect so i took the tags off

The Donkey was in a little Baggy $1

The Wolf was loose $1

The polar Bear was loose $2

The fairy horse was from the Olena set but the fairy was missing and so was half the box $2

At a St Vincent DePaul I found the black horse for 49 cents

Every thing else was from a $2.99 bag at another SVDP All Schleich except the elf is a Papo

Other things in the $2.99 bag, A Baboon, two dogs and a a cat from AA, an unknown African Prarie Dog (Safari Ltd Meerkat) and a weird red gazell




Also in the bag were tiny horses from a safari ltd toob, some snakes and 6 soft rubber rats

There was a car and some Mcdonalds toys I left on a bench at the bus station

I thought i had seen it on this forum and knew some one would point it out, 4am and i could not think of the name

I knew it had something to do with the song "Road to Marrakesh"

Every week i find a few good figures in the random thrift store bags.

The discount store still has more for $1 to $2 each but i will have to look in big bins of toys to find them at the bottom. Most of what I could see was chickens, ducks and small deer none of those really belong in a dungeons and dragons game but i'll go back when i have time to rummage

And sometimes I miss out. One day I was waiting for a customer to come before my lunch time. By the time they get to my store and go my lunch time is over but i close for 20 minutes to look at a SVDP nearby and grab hamburgers. As soon as I get to the thrift store i go to the toy isle and some one is walking away with a Schleich Cerebus and Papo Dragon that they got for 75 cents each. All i found that day was a mule with a broken ear



All the animals are just a side quest to find more Schleich and Papo Knights, wariours, elves and creatures. Soon i shall set up a large scale game using the knights and elves and run my Princess Nerdia though her first role playing game.

Slow week I found one 99 cent bag bag with a Schliech Knight and a Dollar store moose and a wrestler . Since he is on a moose the Knight must be from Canada and i named him Sir Dudley and armed him with one of my sail needles

There was also a Schleich Roman Centurion missing an arm and half a foot, with the stem of what I think is a LOTR Hobbit Pipe shoved into his sword fist

Yes always good finds at the store near Princess Nerdia's home. I think that part of town is full of meth addicts who don't buy toys for there kids.

And PN was the first to point out while it was still it the bag that it is without doubt a male dog

Looking at a box of unsorted stuff i got in the last few weeks from thrift stores on my Monday off



[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Random Dinos from the last month, they were all in random bags 2 or 3 in a 99 cent bag with other junk

Unknown Bronto with bad mold lines and joins. Unknown Steg with bad mold lines and joins. Unknown that says S tyracosaurus on the tail and the belly shows ware there should be writing but the casting was vauge,i suspect a knock off with an old mold. Unknown Bronto with a flat spot on the tummy ware it looks like the writing was ground off then a few dino wrinkles were scratched, i suspect the maker info was ground off an original toy and then that toy was used to make molds for the knock off. Toy Major Dimetrodon 2000. Spinosaurus Safari / carnegie 1992.

Far left unknown dragons from a random bags of other stuff. The three center dragons were from the Dollar Store and made by Ja Ru. The far right dragon is also from a random bag and made by Chap Me.



[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

All four of these horses are made by Imperial from the 1980's. The three smaller horses were all found single for 50 cents each in the last few weeks. The large Imperial unicorn I got eight years ago at a thrift store, I saw a little girl trying to jump and reach the unicorn on a high shelf so when she went to get her mom to help her get the toy I grabbed it ran to the check out stand.
