The Rocket Raccoon (#5002154) polybag is finally available at Toys R Us in the US. It is not a gift with purchase either you can just buy the Rocket minifigure for $4.99. Rocket is in the red uniform the Guardians wore in the later part of the movie. The set also has a baby Groot figure, and some alternative stickers for the Milano (#76021) ship. Previously this figure was part of a ComicCon exclusive set.
I like this version of Rocket. I almost had him early. I was at a Toys R Us the other day. The bags were hanging on an end cap with a price label. But when I got up front the register wouldn’t allow the cashier to ring it. She called a manager who said they couldn’t sell it till the 16th. He said they weren’t suppose to be out yet and asked where I found it.
I made a trip today to pick it up. I went the TRU that is closer to home. They didn’t have them on the slaesfloor. Instead they were at the service desk you just have to ask. I’m guessing they kept the there to avoid theft and scalpers. I’ve already seen people posting bags of them online and reselling them. I’m ok if you pick up an extra one or two but really leave some for everybody else.
UPDATE: I checked the TRU that had stocked them early. They had them on the salefloor instead of behind the counter. Also there are some reports that some TRUs are holding them off the floor till this weekend.
TRU TMNT LEGO Promo
Toys R us does have a LEGO Polybag promo this week. Buy $30 or more of LEGO and get a free TMNT mini Shellraiser polybag (#084594). I was able to walk out with spending $30 on LEGO mainly because I couldn’t find Rocket on the floor. One I went up front and got him I didn’t return to the main store. They also have but one get one 40% on Mega Bloks ‘s, Halo, ans Call of Duty sets and the McFarland Toys Walking Dead sets.
Brotherhood Workshop’s newest brick film.
A conversation between Peter Quill, Han Solo, and Malcolm Reynolds, discussing the age old question: when is it ok to shoot first?
It’s Nerd Block time. The hints for this month were a Classic TMNT item, a scribblenauts item, and a Guardians of The Galaxy shirt and a STD. Lets see what was in the box. Plus an announcement about October’s block.
Mega Bloks series 2 blind Bag ($2.99) Series 2 featured characters from the Marvel movies but not actual screen versions of the characters. These figures were released a few years ago. I got Captain America. I already have this figure. I may send him to ebay or put him in our booth.
DC Collectibles Scribblenauts Unmasked Series 2 Mystery Figure ($4.99) Nice looking figure plus a code for a digital comic.
Nerd Block stress relief squishy brain. (~2.99) It’s cool.
The big TMNT item is a paper craft set by boxos and funko. ($9.99 ) The set has all four turtles, Splinter, Shredder, a foot solider, a pizza place and the Turtle van. Not sure what to this of this. Not nearly as cool an item as I was expecting when they said “dubbed by our staff as their top Nerd Block item of 2014.”
Ninja Turtles are cool. I’ve built a few papercraft items. I just don’t know if I want to set this up. My son is too young to build it and not destroy it.
The STD item is a Giant Microbe. It is a plush toy of a microscopic organism. I guessed this was what we would get when they said the box included an STD. The toy is bagged with a card with information about the microscopic organism. There’s a card that says not for people under 12 years of age. But the same info in on a post card in the box. The card has facts about STDs such as *one in every 4 collage students has had an STD. Yes they spelled it as collage not college.
Anyway you could have caught one of four bug from the box. Mine had Chlamydia.
The best thing this month is the shirt. An Awesome mix tape Guardians of the Galaxy shirt.
