The Mythical Unicorn


LEGO Deadpool in a unicorn costume

Since the Unicorn Girl minifig was announced, I wanted to do some kind Despicable Me “It’s so Fluffy” joke. Deadpool likes my little pony, so surely he likes fluffy unicorns.

Robot Tober 2014 Day Three


Last October I challenged myself to post a robot toy related picture everyday. I am continuing the challenge this year. Welcome back to Robot Tober!

Today post is a Hexbug Zombie Nanobot. Hexbug Nanobots are basically toy bugs. They walk bump into thing and change directions. They do look like scurrying bugs. This time of year you can find the Zombie version that have a glow in the dark skeleton. They come in a black or orange coffin. I found this one in Target Halloween section for about $5.

Thor’s Day and new custom fig.


Thorsday is upon us again.

It’s been announced that Mjolnir will be welded by a female this fall. As the current character has become unworthy of Mjolnir. But he will still be around. Here is my version of the unworthy Thor that we will see this fall. I made the figure with parts from my collection. I should have use black pants but they blend into too much with the black backdrop.
New thor custom lego minifigure.

What do I think about a female Thor. I don’t see a problem with it. Thor’s been a frog. Mjolnir has been used by Beta Ray bill, Storm, and Thunderstrike. Hopefully we will see some great stories. Others that have wielded Mjolnir.

Robot Tober Day Twenty-Eight


Welcome to Robot Tober. I decided to challenge myself to do a post a day for this month. The theme for the month is Robots. each day I plan to post a pic of a robot, mech, or power suit action figure.

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 Superhero Poly Bags, Bricktober


Toys R us is running their Bricktober event again this year. If you spend $60 or more on LEGO you get a free five figure LEGO set. They are also having a free build Saturday Oct 19 12-2 Saturday. It is a Mini brick built Joker Power suit. I didn’t get a pic of their signage. The kit is a human shaped figure in Joker’s color scheme. It is just bricks, no head piece like the Full Joker #4527 set.

What I did find at my Toys R Us was Superhero polybags. They had the Krang Laser turret set (#30270) that was an in store build at some point. They also had the Iron Man vs Fighting drone set (#30167) for 3.99. This set was given away at LEGO store back in May if you spent $50 or more. Finally for $4.99 they had the  (#30166) Robin and Red Bird Cycle set. I thought what a coincidence finding Robin the same time as news of a 2014 NIghtwing minifig was circulating on the web.


Happy Independence Day!
