Coming soon new LEGO shirt from ShirtPunch

I love to share new LEGO themed shirt. This time I actually have a preview. This design is coming soon to ShirtPunch. It is in honor of the March 9th premiere of the new COSMOS. The new version is helmed by Neil deGrasse Tyson. The original COSMOS was hosted by Carl Sagan and aired in 1980.  ‘Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey’ will premiere March 9th 9PM ET/PT on the various FOX and National Geographic channels.
A released date for the LEGO COSMOS shirt has nor been announced but I’ll be sure to post it here. The artist is Pacalin.

Target Seasonal aisle

Target is filling their seasonal aisle with Easter merchandise. Among the baskets suffers they have a few cool toys. I saw a LEGO polybag car. They had Hex Bugs in Easter eggs. The nano bugs even had bunny ears. They looked like the head band ears that some people wear at Easter. I think they are removable. Other toys include Disney princess items, 3d Dinosaur puzzles, and some Best Lock set. The best lock sets were Stargate and Rescue themes.

Dungeon & Dragons Kreon Warriors

KRE-O now has Dungeon and Dragon building sets and mini figs. The Kreons are sold on blister cards and not in blind bags with a small vignette for the character.  The KRE-O site list army building packs for $2.49. I did not see these in store. What I did see were the Kreon sets and some of the larger sets.

I picked up a Drizzt set because it’s Drizzt! He comes with his scimitars, a bow, and a tree. The figure has detail on his torso and legs. The elf ears are molded with the hair pieces. The cloak has three tabs with neck holes. I like the way it makes the cloak drape over his shoulders. There are two display base included as well a typical KRE-O block and a flat round base.  I prefer the round one but guess they included the block for constancy with other Kreons.  There’s also a card with character stats. This sets was $3.99 for 22 pieces.

drowI will look for the army builder bags and may get some if I see any interesting minis.  The KRE-O page won’t let me zoom in to see what all figures are available. It looks like they have the basic character classes and some monsters. KRE-O blind bags are usually coded with numbers so you can tell what character you are getting. Until the list is published online, avoid duplicates by looking for numbers on the bags and making sure you don’t get duplicate ones.

Look for them at places that carry KRE-O  sets. I tried the where to buy feature but think it just list where Hasbro stuff  is sold. Every store listed said call store foe availability.

So do you plan on adding any of these to your collection?

One Word Photo Challenge: Neon

I’ve joined Jennifer Nichole Wells’s One Word Photo Challenge. It’s a new Photo challenge based on a new word each Tuesday. February 4 is the launch date. She has listed her weekly word until June. The first leg of the challenge is based on color and this week’s color is Neon.

I was sick last week and was unable to make new photos. These images are from my 365 project a few years ago. The first is our local theater.

Winter Without End?

Local weather blog. He uses humor and sci-fi references to make this dreary weather entertaining.

MONDAY UPDATE: It looks increasingly likely that almost ALL of the snow with Tuesday’s storm will miss us to the south.


It looks like another round of wintry weather could impact parts of the Midstate this week. At the very least, it will be a close call…and also at the very least, Middle Tennessee will continue to resemble a scene from Cormac McCarthy’s “The Road”:


The word you’re looking for is “bleak.”

Like the last several chances of snow, it looks like the Nashville Metro is going miss out on the significant snow. The difference is, this time the snow looks like it’s going to be staying to the south of I-40, mostly likely along (or even south of) the Tennessee/Alabama state line.

Don’t be surprised if you see some snow in the air on Monday, across especially the northern half of the Midstate. This is NOT the “main…

The LEGO Movie is just a few days away. To mark the occasion here’s a new comic staring a character from The LEGO Movie, Calamity Drone and the clockwork robot. I like the shiny look of Calamity Drone and the other drones. It looks more like metal.

I might offer this as a print. Just in time for valentine’s day.

Calamity Drone, the lego movie mini fig

I’m going to attempt to do a new LEGO Movie minifigure photo each day till the movie is released. If me or my little builder are not sick, we finish our taxes, and the weather cooperates. It’s raining now, it might sleet or even snow. but not enough snow to be worth it. I just want a some nice snow to photograph. Not crazy cold or sleet. just enough soft snow to cover everything and the action figures can enjoy.
