LEGO Mechanic


Here the Series 10 mechanic. I really like the paint on this one. The shades, front and back Jacket, and the tattoo makes a cool minifig. Plus I can use him with all the various motorcycles from the LEGO Superheroes sets.

Bumblebee Woman

Had time off and good weather so I went on a photowalk with some minifigures.
Plus my minifigures Character Encyclopedia arrived today. I still think the Toy Solider should have been in series 10 for army building. Grandpa, Librarian, or Sea Captain should have been included in the book. They are single character not good for groups. Grandpa has unique hair part and is used in the book to show haw a figure is designed from concept to final figure. The Librarian cause she ties into books. The sea Captain is colorful and
would attract attention.

Gorgons attack! and Ebay suggests what?


I found another Medusa.

medusa_duohdr

The Medusa tail has been used in Ninjago snake minifigs. I remember seeing some of the figs before and thought they were cool. I checked E-bay to see how much the figs costs. I hit search and boy was I surprised. Look what showed up as a related search. Woman’s home companion cookbook. What does Ninjago have to do with cooking? Or is it the snakes that matched the cooking theme? I haven’t searched for cook books.

Giving benefit of doubt maybe Moms search Ninjago for their kids and eBay marks recognized the same user had looked at cook books.


More Medusa.


Another Medusa shot.

LEGO Medusa!


LEGO minifig Medusa series 10

I finally had time to shoot the Medusa minifig. She looks even better than the pictures. The tail is really big as it should be to keep it in scale. I want more of these. I don’t know what I’ll do with them but these are cool. This is my favorite from the collectible series.

At the Arcade


affairatarcade

Affair at the Arcade stars K’nex Super Mario Brother Wii Princess Peach, Mario Cart Mario and , Luigi, and a Pac-man arcade candy tin. It took a while to find a princess peach. I had seen her sold in blister pack earlier. But when I started looking for one in store she was nowhere to be found. I finally saw the Mario bros wii bags. She was easy to id in the bag the dress easy to find. If you want other characters there is a code to determine what’s in the bag. It is based on which number is underlined on the back of the bag. Also this is my first multi panel comic.


Series 10 in Stores


LEGO mini figures series 10 is finally in stores. I ran to toys r us during lunch hoping to find some figures. I was there at eleven just an hour after they opened. They’d been hit hard. Two boxes on the shelf one had a dozen or so figures the other was empty.
I did a felt the bags for a Medusa and didn’t feel the tail. I didn’t have much time so I just grab a couple bags.
I tried Target they didn’t have any figs. So what did I get?

The Sky diver and the decorator. Neither of these were on my must have list. But the sky diver’s facial expression is hilarious.
