We a dusting of snow, preceded by freezing rain. Usually when we get snow it melts away pretty fast. Luckily I had time to create a few mini-figs in snow pics.
Yeti is from series 11 collectible mini figures and the AT-AT is from 2012 Star Wars Advent calendar (9509).
It’s Mech weekend here at Yoda Archives. Yesterday we saw the evil mech today is the Battle Mech.
Whenever danger threatens the planet, the mighty Battle Mech goes into action! Launching from its secret base, it blasts through the sky on powerful retro-rockets, using an arsenal of built-in weaponry and gadgets to battle enormous space monsters, out-of-control asteroids, and other perils.
The scarecrow does his job.
Clockwork robot finally finishes the story of how he met Female Robot.

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 new Female Robot from LEGO Minifigures series 11. Still available in stores. If you find your figures by touch, feel for the L-shaped bracket that connects to the wind up key and a squarish block with bumps on multiple sides. If you only feel bumps on the top is the gift box that is with the elf.
The Yeti is walking his walker.
Yeti is from series 11 collectible mini figures and the AT-AT is from 2012 Star Wars Advent calendar.
To Celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day, here’s a Pirate pun.
September 19 is international Talk like a Pirate Day.
When things gets tough, when you feel the heat and pressure of life remember what the Yeti says, keep frozen.
Today.com article of the female scientist minifig. I posted a pic of one these a few days ago one of my favorite of series 11. Why because it’s a minifig of my wife. She’s a scientist and has a minor in chemistry. Two great articles to read.
This LEGO minifigure isn’t wearing pink, and she isn’t showing any skin. Her wardrobe consists of a crisp white lab uniform and glasses, and her little claw hands grasp two itty-bitty Erlenmeyer flasks.
The “Scientist” just hit stores on Sept. 1 as part of LEGO’s Minifigure Series 11, and she’s already being hailed as a stereotype-busting hero of the toy aisle. Those who have kept a wary eye on LEGO’s pastel-hued, cleavage-heavy, hair-salon-loving minifigures for girls say the Scientist is a big, big deal and the first of its kind.
“Let us hope that this is only the beginning,” science editor and writer Maia Weinstock declared in an in-depth blog post for ScientificAmerican.com.
“I think this figure is a positive step because it portrays a woman in a STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) career without resorting to gender stereotyping by making her pink or calling her a ‘lady scientist,’” Elizabeth Sweet, a doctoral candidate in sociology at the University of California, Davis, told LiveScience.

It’s 11:47 am on the Sunday before Labor Day, and I’m staking out a LEGO store inside a Byzantine shopping mall on the outskirts of Boston. I am here with a coterie of children and parents, the lot of us waiting impatiently while three LEGO associates in black shirts and khakis make their last-minute preparations before the onslaught begins.
Ok it’s been awhile since I’ve had time to photograph any toys. series 11 minifigs are out. I have a couple of figs. I’ve also picked up the Lone Ranger Stage Coach set and my first KRE-O building set. I found the set at a couldn’t pass up price. I will post more soon.
