The Silly Brick Pics poster features A sheriff saying remember where we parked. There are five western themed trading cards. There was also a bag of bricks from Booster Bricks. This month there’s a challenge to build a robot with only the parts in the bag.

 

BrickSwag’s March Builds

brickswag_march_train

The build for March is a black and red train engine. This is a build pack from The Brick Builders Club, the guys that make BrickSwag. There was also an accessory pack with a treasure chest, a Jolly roger, coins, gems and some sword. I wonder if this was to be part of last month’s Pirate Themed box.  The BrickSwag brick is green and has the March 2016 printed on on end.

I finally got a LEGO BB-8. Still hunting for the series 15 minifigures. The only place I found them is at Toys R Us. TRU has blind bag figs 2 for $5 this week. Today is the last day. I’d go get a few more but I spent my LEGO budget during their Double Points event. Plus I’ll be spending a lot in early April. Three items in the first week of April, The Force Awakens DVD, LEGO DC Encyclopedia, and a Classic Mr Freeze LEGO minifig with $75 purchase at the LEGO shop.

Take your action figure to work day.


It’s take your action figure to workday. I got a  real quick shot here from my office. Rey , BB-8, and an iguana paid  me a visit.

Take your Action figure to workday.

Take your action figure to work on the first Friday in March and post pictures of him/her/it with you, with your coworkers, with a client or with your boss (well, maybe not your boss).

You’re only limited by your own creativity. Post away! Be sure you include the Official #AFWDYYYY (example: #AFWD2015, #AFWD2016, etc…) so we can all see the amazing things you do to make this as nerdy as possible.

It’s take your action figure to workday. I wish I had know about this earlier. Actually I’m on vacation but if I had know I would have done something in my home office.  Still a bit of time left in the day.

Buccaneer Batman with new Book.


Look what is coming next month. The new DC superheros Character Encyclopedia with a Pirate Batman. I like the phrase Buccaneer Batman better. He’s pretty cool even though there’s already a ton of Batman minifigures already. See DK page for more. Amazon has its US release date as April 5.
