One of the great things about collecting Vinyl is, much like Pins, there's always some trading to do. If we're not buying, one of us almost always has a duplicate we can carry with us, and we usually spend quite a bit of time just going from store to store for Mark to drop off his Muppets Series dupes (Chad has been very lucky recently and hasn't had many duplicates to trade).
This past trip, like most, Mark had two duplicate Muppets to try and score new ones for his collection with. For the first time in quite a while actually, he was successful! Lately he's been trading out Vinyl and receiving non-Muppets in return, but this week he brought "Waldorf" and "The Swedish Chef" in, and took "Rowlf" and "Bean" out. Only four Muppets left until his first complete set.

It doesn't mean he didn't buy any on Sunday, though. With Park Series 5 taken care of, he's moved on to Animation Series 1 now! He picked up four (in a case that only had five(!) left) of the newly released Vinyl on Sunday evening in Westward Ho and for reasons that are probably obvious, he was very pleased. He managed to get four completely different Vinyls (no dupes!), one of which was the "Pink Elephant Chaser". The very first box he opened when he got home had it. It's safe, and awesome, to say that our "Chaser" luck continues to hold out for us, which is a really good thing.
