So being of a geeky mind, this weekend I went to the MCM Birmingham Comic Con, and it was fab! I was able to get a couple of things to add to my collection and it was really great to see an event that once shared an exhibition hall is now big enough to fill two halls.
One of my purchases (well technically it was purchased for me) was the DC Cover Girls Wonder Woman Statue, I am a big Wonder Woman fan, but I am picky about which ones I want and like, I try not to collect stuff for the sake of collecting it. If the face or quality doesn't overly impress me then I won't bother, but this? This I REALLY liked which never normally happens.

It is a well-made, well-painted (not something I could say about a lot of my pop vinyls) figure, a simpler version of the old Wonder Woman costume. Her hair is in a style that even I could do to my hair, the top is corseted to match the boots. It is 7.25" tall, and cast in porcelain, and I think one of my favourite figures!
Another of my purchases today was the Exclusive Wonder Woman (in Star Sapphire's outfit) Pop Vinyl, as shown below. I found it hidden on a shelf at the back of one of the stands, with my eagle eyes I spied it and asked to have a look. They handed me two, one non-metallic and one metallic, as the metallic one was £40 and the non-metallic was £20 I decided I couldn't afford both but I wanted at least one as I had never seen them before.
The next thing on my list is: A Hobbit home! I mean who wouldn't, I love this, I may need to obtain a child from somewhere so I have a reason for it, or I may just move my home office into it and geek out.

And lastly, something more in budget:

For now, that will do, so take note friends and family because I know what I want!
