Yoda is here for the 500th post.


Here it is the 500th post on Yoda Archives.com. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started this blog back in January 2011, with Found me you have. I just wanted to have some fun with my camera and some action figures. I’ll hit the three year mark in just a couple of months.I’ve made a lot of friends here and hope to meet more of you in person at a convention sometime.

Thank you all for your support.

For this special post I had to go back to the character that was the impetus for the blog, The Jedi Master, Yoda. And I placed him in my favorite set of the year.

Brick Fortress Mini Legs update.


Back in April I posted about the Brick Fortress Mini-acton Legs, These Mini Legs are made for walking. At the time they were running a poll for the next mini leg color. The have closed the voting and hopefully soon we will know the new color. I’m still hoping for dark brown so I can use them with Frodo and Sam. I now have the unexpected Gathering set (#79003) so I’ll be ordering more legs soon.

The polls for voting on the next color for articulated mini-legs are officially closed! Sorry it’s taken so long, we extended the voting period to give more people a chance to vote.
We are counting up the votes now and should have the final count in a day or so.
We would like to thank all of you that participated.

Thank you,

Brick Fortress

Tower of Orthanc LEGO set


The LEGO Lord of the Rings Tower of Orthanc 10237 images  hit the web today. The set is massive and beautiful. The set contains 2359 pieces. You get an ideal of how big the Tower is when it is shown in the shot with the Trent and the minifigs. But this video of it gives a better view of the scale of the tower. The set retails for 199.99. I would love to have this.

The Elves are watching

I shot this a couple days ago. Yesterday was too cold and overcast to get great outdoor marco shots. We’re still at that time of year where its warm one day and near freezing the next. Plus there’s not much flora and fauna to shoot yet.

Exculsive Minifigs with DVD or Target and Back Again


March was great for Mini-fig collectors. There were two dvd releases that included exclusive min-figs. Target had an exclusive Bilbo Baggins mini fig with the Hobbit DVD/Blu-ray combo pack. Plus the Cartoon network LEGO Star Wars special, The Empire Strikes Out had an exclusives Darth Vader mini-fig. I’ll tell you about my experience with each.

Bilbo LEGO from Target.

I’ll start with The Empire Strikes Out DVD cause it a shorter story. The special aired on Cartoon Network last September. Last time there was a Star Wars:LEGO special the dvd release was announced right after wards. This time it took a while for the announcement. Speculation was what would mini-fig if any, would be included in the dvd release. This time it was Darth Vader with a medal.

The figure looks pretty cool and an alternate Darth Vader is always cool. The dvd retail for $14.99 but Amazon and Target have it for $9.99. It was easy to find on the shelfs at Target unlike the Hobbit dvd. The dvd was released on March 26.

When it was revealed that Target would offer an exclusive mini-fig with the purchase of The Hobbit dvd/Blu-ray combo I was eager to shop at Target. I decided to pre-order the set. I was afraid the store would sell out before I could get there. So I ordered from target.com, the delivery date was a few days after the date the dvds would be in store. I didn’t expect to be able to watch the movie that night anyway so it wasn’t that big of a deal. But I remember the days when you could pre-order a dvd or game and it would be delivered the same day it was in the stores. I had the same problem with the LEGO:Lord of The Rings Game.
The Sunday ads were released and the in store price was two dollars cheaper than the online price. Did Target guarantee and match prices like amazon did? No. The day the dvd came the online target.com listed the set as unavailable. I was worried they’d sell out. But They tell me if they were out right? I thought about going to the store but didn’t. The next day still no shipping notification. the set was still listed as unavailable online. I had to run some errands and went to Target. They still had about four sets with the mini-fig so I grabbed one. Turned out to be a good decision. This was on Wednesday.

The expected delivery date was between Friday the 22-tues 26. I thought about cancelling the order but I knew some birthdays were coming up and that make a good gift. Finally they send a shipping notification on Saturday. But the pic they sent with it was of the regular DVD/Blu-ray set sans Bilbo. But when I clicked the link in the email it showed the set with Bilbo. And the expected delivery date was changed to March 30. a week after the original expected date.
Finally on Saturday I open the mailbox and inside in a small package, It’s thin so I know before I open that there is no figure in the set. It was a holiday weekend so I waited till Monday to return the dvd to a Target store. The Hobbit dvd was released on March 19 it arrived on March 30. From the time it was released and arrived i had gone to Target bought the Hobbit dvd, made another trip to Target and got the Star Wars special. So lesson learned don’t preorder from Target. get out there and fight the crowds.
The Bilbo figure is very well done. He has blue jacket, a vest and an ascot. His head is double-sided. You will see him in this blog again.
