Robot Tober 2014 Day Twenty-nine


Welcome back to Robot Tober! Well I missed a week’s worth of robot pics. I had to work earlier than expected Thursday. Then it was packing and traveling to the Renaissance Faire. We were very busy at faire. And have been playing catch up since we got home.

LEGO Doctor Who short


Here is a fan made Doctor Who recreation. The scene is from the Robots of Sherwood episode.

Mornings mean Mega Bloks, Bloks for Breakfeast?


Mega Blok cars in General Mills Cereals

I had a nice surprise at the grocery store today. Actual toys in the cereals boxes. Specifically selected General Mills brands have a Mega Bloks car inside. There are four different vehicles; a pick-up truck, a SUV, and two cars. Each set has a set of Hello Kitty and Power Rangers stickers. I like that both themes are in each set. IT prevents a Hello Kitty fan being upsets if the got the Power Ranger set or vice versa. Or you don’t even have too add the stickers. That way you can use the blocks with your others sets. You can choose which set to decorate your car. Once the box is empty, you can cut out sections and make a ramp to drive the cars over.

I spotted them in Lucky Charms, Reese’s Puffs, and Honey Nut Cheerios. According to the General Mills blog the toys can also be found in Golden Grahams, Coco Puffs and Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

The Deadpool is a Funk pop Bobblehead. There were possible versions, red suit or X-force Gray suit. I got the gray suit.  There was pop vinyl figure back in the August block.

The official Avengers prop is Agent Coulson’s Vintage Captain America Trading cards. These are great there’s two sets of the cards. One  in mint condition one blood stained. Great for Agent Coulson or Nick Fury costumers. This is my favorite item in the box. A quick search shows this retailing at $40.

This said this month will be my last Nerd Block unboxing. We just got hit with some unexpected expenses and we have to trim some things. The mystery box is one of them. Being an adult sucks. November’s box will have a Boba Fett item and a one in seven chance of having an Bruce Campbell Autograph. Plus some time in the future Bruce Campbell will be the Nerd Block curator.
