Deadpool has a new buddy


LEGO Deadpool has boboDeadpool has a new bestie named Bobo.


Bonus comic, we’ve all been there.


I have a bonus comic today. The idea for this one came up while I was working on the “What’s in the bag?” page. The page needed more images. What figure do I have that would search bags? a cop of course. I thought about using Chief Wiggum but he’s not intimidating.  I’ve made a few minor changes to the What’s in the bag page, just rearranging a few things. See the link at the top of the blog.

Bad cop wants to know what is in the blindbag. check this page for tips and link for lego and other blind bag toys.


Welcome to Sector 7G


MR Burns meets the minions
The Springfield Nuclear Power Plant has new drones.. I mean workers, the minions. How will minions do in a Power Plant? I’m glad I’m not near there.

May is wrapping up and it’s been a busy month. I’ve spent the weekends vending at the Tennessee Renaissance Festival. It was a great year at faire best weather in a long time. And the crowds were awesome.
For the first time I have collected an entire series of LEGO minifigs. And I bought them using the feel guides listed on the What’s in the bag page. So many thanks, to everyone that creates these guides. I made a couple of mistakes guessing. But that was mainly when I did not take enough time to verify by identifying two different accessories. I plan to use every figure in my toy photography. So far I’ve posted pics with Bart, Milhouse, Marge and now Mr Burns. I’m processing one with Lisa right now. Plus making use of a Simpsons accessory on friday’s post so look forward to that.

Good luck if you are still searching.

Also May has been a great month for traffic. It’s my busiest May on record and busiest month so far this year. So thank you for all the support.

LEGO Simpsons minifigs in stores today.


Today is the official release date of The LEGO Simpsons minifigs. I was unable to find any in store early, so I’ll be checking a few stores today. Some of the fan sites already have the figs and have provided guides for those of us that are still searching.

Brick and Bloks has made a chart of bump codes for the Simpsons minifigs.  He does note that in the past LEGO has changed the bump codes, so these may not be the same.  The Brick Fan has a touch guide detailing what accessories to feel for in the bag. I will use a combination of these as I collect the figures. I want to get the entire set this time. I will get a few bags today and hold off on anymore till after I see all the May the 4th sales. If LEGO has some great deals on Star wars sets I’ve been eyeing I’m getting them.

 

Good hunting.

What did you find?

Any more tips for other collectors?

Any idea on the how many of each character are in a box?

UPDATE:

Thanks to Grace who shared Euro Bricks’s great review and distribution breakdown for the Simpsons minfigs.
