How are long minions at McDonalds?


I have had a number of hit from people searching “How are long minions at McDonald’s?” I don’t know but can guess. Happy meal.com lists say the next Happy meal theme will feature Smurf 2. The movie is will be released late July or early August. I the Happy will change when the movie hit, just as it changed to minions when Despicable Me 2 opened. So you probably have a week to a week and a half to get your minions.
For all those that just found my blog, please leave a comment or question.

Do you have a favorite minion?
Have you watched the animated Minion shorts? Wal-mart has a dvd with three Minion shorts, three Lorax shorts and a Hop short.
Do you play Minion Rush?

I’m also getting searches for “where to buy despicable me 2 minion surprise blind bag” so far I’ve only seen them at Toys r Us and K-mart. Have you found them anywhere else?

Another Monday Means Another Medusa


Not actually called Medusa, but you know they based this character on the gorgon. This is the She-Demon from the Hercules the Legendary Journeys tv show. Toy Biz made action figures from the Hercules and Xena show during the nineties. She-Demon: Stone Strike Tail is a nice toy, not as detailed as current action figures but it’s a mythological character and those are always cool to collect.

Although her appearance suggests a modern interpretation of Lamia, the She-Demon’s powers and story more closely mirror those of Medusa.

From Wave Two of the ToyBiz HTLJ 5 inch action figure line. The She-Demon as seen in “The Wrong Path.” The She-Demon has a spring-loaded tail. To make her attack, you pull back the tail and then press a button at the bottom to make it spring forward. The She-Demon also comes with a “stone” face mask which will fit over the heads and shoulders of the Hercules and Iolaus figures so you can turn them into stone!

Update: Someone found this blog by searching “are the despicable me 2 blind bags available at Target?” The answer as far as I can tell in no. At least not yet. An associate tried to help my wife find them there. They checked the despicable me 2 toys, the card end cap and the card and toys at the register. They did not have them. He said if we had the UPC we could scan an see if they were in store. So next time I went to Target I took the barcode from a bag and scanned it and the self scan. The scanner said item not found. So Target does not currently have the blind bags. They do have the action figures and they are cheaper there than at Toys R Us or K-mart. TRU and K-mart are the only place I’ve found the blind bags so far.

LEGO CUUSOO Muppets Project.


A great CUUSSO project shared by The Brick Collectors. CUUSSO Member Jedikermit has created some custom Muppet minifigs and  vignettes with suggestions for more Muppet sets. The stage from the opening credits of Muppet show would make a great display for mini-figs.. Sam the Eagle would be easy to make reusing chicken suit guy’s body.

Muppet LEGO CUUSOO

LEGO CUUSOO Project

The Muppets would make an excellent series for LEGO sets, and have potential for both young builders and Adult Fans Of LEGO. There are dozens of popular characters, but there are also vehicles, playsets, and scenes that would make great buildable LEGO sets. Like other Disney properties that LEGO has produced, including Toy Story, Cars, and Pirates of the Caribbean, there’s a built-in audience of fans young and old that would be able to enjoy the system.

Some suggested sets at various price points:

KERMIT’S SWAMP $7.99

Kermit the Frog in a small swamp scene, with his banjo, some lily pads, and possibly a friendly alligator or his nephew Robin to add some play value. Could even include his bicycle that he uses to pedal away from it all in The Muppet Movie.

ELECTRIC MAYHEM BUS $39.99

The band from The Muppet Show has always been popular with kids and adults, and this set would include their bus as seen in The Muppet Movie. Characters would include Dr. Teeth, Floyd, Janice, Zoot and Animal, and all of their instruments would come with the set. A small stage could be built with the bus, or they could perform on top of the bus. They’re hippies like that.

MUPPET THEATER $59.99

The largest set would be The Muppet Theater, which would include a stage area, and a balcony to the side. Exclusive minifigures like Statler and Waldorf (the two old guys from the balcony), Sam Eagle, Swedish Chef, Rowlf the Dog, Mahna-Mahna and the Snowths, and unique versions of Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy could be included. Ideally, it would be wonderful to have different scenes for sketches that could be put onto the stage: some brick-built arches that represent the beginning of The Muppet Show; a small kitchen for the Swedish Chef, a grand piano for Rowlf..
