Robot Tober Day thirty-one


For the final Robot Tober post I sharing one of my old toys.  Gaiking is from the Shogun Warrior toy line. The figure was 2 foot tall and on of the coolest toys I’ve owned. This is a close up of his torso cause it is a face so reminds me of a Jack’olantern since today is Halloween.

Today’s toy is the Kraang in his battle suit. He is from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Kraang Lab Escape 79100. The minifig version of Kraang  appeared in this blog back on Oct 7.

LEGO CUUSOO Update


LEGO has announced the newest LEGO CUUSOO review results. Full results here.

They have made decisions on the projects for the past three review periods. The good news id the next LEGO CUUSSO set is the Exo Suit. I’m a big fan of Mechs and this even ties in with my current Robottober event. So I’m happy for this set. It should be out something in 2014.
The bad news is no Portals or Zelda Projects. The Land Rover set is still under review so maybe it’ll get built. It’s a nice model but not one I’m interested in buying.

Robot Tober Day Eightteen the lost post!


It’s still Robottober. Today’s post is a Yoda Archives classic, meaning it appeared on this blog back in 2011. It’s Gaiking from the Shogun Warriors.

Yoda finds a new weapon to fight the droid army, Gaiking.

Why is it the lost post? I posted it late on the 18th. But just found it in my drafts meaning it has not been posted to the blog but. It showed up on my social media site which are connected to the wordpress blog. I use Publish to send post to Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook. The pic is there but it wasn’t posted here.
