I have a new page that lists some of the apps, tricks, and websites that help you determine what is hiding in that blind bag. The link is at the top of this blog. I made a page rather than a post so it could be easier to find. If you have more tips or sites please post them on the page.
What’s in the Bag.
The blind bags are cool but they can be frustrating finding the figure you want. You may want just one figure from a set. You might want to collect all the figures. or you may want multiples of the same figure for army building. But how can you know what is in the bag? These Blind bags guides can help.
The best I’ve found for LEGO is the Touch Guide in the My Mini’s app. The app coats $1.99 so less than a mini-fig and its well worth it. no only does it tell you what to feel for it shows you what mini’s you might confuse with it.
Remember it’s daylight saving time. So spring forward and lose sleep.

We had a great time last year and are looking forward to MACK II.

The Zombie Hunter finds new targets, the Silence from Dr Who.
It’s been over a week since the Memphis Comic and Fantasy Convention. I finally have time to blog on the con. This was the third year of the con but the first time they had a track dedicated to LEGO. This was also the first LEGO event I’ve attended.
We went to sell my toy photography prints. Once we were set up I got to walk around a bit. The first purchase I made was from the Citizen Brick booth. I knew they mini-fig babies so I had to get one to commemorate my son’s birth. I also picked up a zombie heady and a victim torso.
I bought a few Mini-figs from Milton Train Works. I got a series 2 life guard, series 8 Santa and another figure from a set that I don’t own. It’ll appear in a future post. With the purchase of the life guard I now have at least one mini-fig from every series but #1
Brickmania toys had some great looking kits. and a Bikini Bottom MOC. The LEGO group was there but as display only they didn’t have products for sale. But they did have a LEGO Batman comic book. It was game trailer in a printed form.
There were also vendors selling various LEGO sets and mini-figures. Since it was part of a comic convention, there were several places selling comic books, toys, t-shirts and geek stuff. There were also some panels, concerts, and short films.
We had a lot of fun and hope to make it back. More pictures on my site, RenaissanceFairePictorial.com

The Phantom Menace has returned to the big screen, this time in 3D. Lucasfilm is promoting the re-release with packaging and advertising featuring Darth Maul. This spring he returns to the small screen in The Clone Wars on Cartoon Network. Wait what? He was cut in two. That’s no flesh wound.
Here’s another Yoda Archives prediction of what the new Darth Maul will look like.
#5 Dalek Maul
At ConNooga this past week I found some Doctor Who Micro-Figure from Character Building. Thank you Fan Boy glass For carrying them. The figures are sold in blind bags so you don’t know which mini you will get. I got a few packs wanted more but had to stay on budget for the con.
