Welcome back to Robot Tober! Well I missed a week’s worth of robot pics. I had to work earlier than expected Thursday. Then it was packing and traveling to the Renaissance Faire. We were very busy at faire. And have been playing catch up since we got home.

Robot Tober 2014 Day Five


Welcome back to Robot Tober!

We have the clockwork robot from LEGO collectible minifigures series 6. He is still one of my favorite CMFs. He was a hard one for me to find back then. I’ve gotten much better at determining which figure is in the bag.

I reused the same background from yesterday image. Do you know what it is? Any guesses?

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.

The LEGO Movie is just a few days away. To mark the occasion here’s a new comic staring a character from The LEGO Movie, Calamity Drone and the clockwork robot. I like the shiny look of Calamity Drone and the other drones. It looks more like metal.

I might offer this as a print. Just in time for valentine’s day.

Calamity Drone, the lego movie mini fig

I’m going to attempt to do a new LEGO Movie minifigure photo each day till the movie is released. If me or my little builder are not sick, we finish our taxes, and the weather cooperates. It’s raining now, it might sleet or even snow. but not enough snow to be worth it. I just want a some nice snow to photograph. Not crazy cold or sleet. just enough soft snow to cover everything and the action figures can enjoy.

Article on the robot and how it plays the game on an iPad.

it’s set up to make a pass across the screen every 20 minutes with its stylus and tap on the mines to collect gold. In between the collection runs, the robot taps on the screen to keep the game awake so the mines don’t get full and the player makes more money.

We’re almost to the end of Robot Tober.

I played with perspective and point of view for today’s robot. I shot him from a low angle to make him look taller.

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.

Daleks, Bigger on the blueprints

I’m still working on a caption for this. any suggestions?

1) Next time we hire someone that knows the metric system.
2) They’re bigger on the blueprints.
3) Not to scale
4) Did not Extrapolate!

Also this weekend we’ll be at ConNooga. If you are near Chattanooga drop by and visit. This year they have an exhibit hall only ticket. Which lets people who just want to shop visit the dealer’s room and not the rest of the convention.


Kre-O Kreon Mirco Changers


As I stated yesterday, this past weekend I found the new Transformers KRE-O mini-fig blind bags. They are called Kreon Miro-Changers and have 2 modes robot and beast or vehicle. The figures do not transform like the action figures. You have to take them apart and build the other form. There are only 6 figure in this series which Hasbro calls the Preview Series.

I got a couple figures to check out. I’d seen the KRE-O sets before but this is my first purchase. I got Waspinator and Scorponok.  First impression the legs look weak, and not much painting detail. Most of the parts are molded in color. Both figures had detail on the torso. The paint was covered  up by chest pieces that had to be added to hook accessories on the robot’s back.

closer look at Scorponok without chest piece.

The heads are painted and have some personality. Scorponok has some neat forearms. But the helmets are the best part. They have that classic Transformers look. A little more details and these would be pretty cool. Some of the parts like the helmets are good for customization.

Scorponok in beast mode.

6 possible figures SPINISTER, SUNSTORM, WASPINATOR, GALVATRON, CRANKSTART or SCORPONOK figure.
