Avengers August Seventeenth

Today is Black Widow Day. Earlier today I posted the Lowe’s Black widow kit and now it a new fig from Playmation. Playmation was a video game plus action figure set. You could add different figure and they would appear in the App. I heard the game was being discontinued. I have seen the toys at discount place like Ross, Essex, and Five Below.


Two pics today cause I could decide which I liked better. I really like the DOF with the fist in the foreground.

Have you played the Playmation App?

Lowe’s Black Widow Build and Grow

Black Widow Build and Grow!

August 13 was Black Widow day at Lowe’s. I unfortunately had to work so my wife and son picked up the set and brought it home. We built it Tuesday night.

This was the easiest build so far, just four steps including the wedge base. And only one size of nails so you have to sort them. There’s a couple places where you add stickers before you can hammer nails. But nothing too tricky.

The Black Widow moves at the waist. She spins so it looks likes she attacking with her baton.

What’s Included in a Build and Grow?

The free kit has a wooden project, instructions with a comic on the back,  a patch of that project, an apron and goggles. You can put your child’s name on the apron and iron on the patches. Then they can wear it the next time.


NEXT PROJECT: The next Build and Grow project is The Hulk and the event date is August 27. This is the final piece of the Avengers series. I don’t know what comes after that.
