Brick Swag October Unboxing.

Yes it is  November and I am just now posting the BrickSwag unboxing for October. Sometimes life is too busy for even LEGO. The October Box was my first BrickSwag Box. The theme was one of my favorites, Robots.

The shirt is a line up of LEGO robots and droids. I have all of those on the shirt. The one at the end is a peek at this month’s build. The design is on black which helps make the artwork pop. This is a new favorite of mine.

There was also a bag of bricks from Booster Bricks. This bag of bricks has a minifig. There’s about fifty bricks here plus the fig. You can see the interior of the magazine behind the bricks.

Brickswag build magazine and cards

This is the Build Magazine and the cards. It is a small but cool magazine. It is 12 pages not including the cover. It is  the size of a standard size of printer paper folded in half.

BrickSwag’s New Robot Mascot


The build for October is a  mini Brickbot. This robot is their mascot.  I’m a robot fan so I’m really happy with this guy. One of his eyes is half closed. He looks kind of sad. I could change it with another eye from my stock but I think it gives him a little more personality. I may have to find another partially closed eye to complete the look.

The BrickSwag brick is white and has the date on it.  I like these printed bricks. I have a small collection of these printed bricks from  Kickstarter Projects and special events. This will add nicely to my collection.

Here is the Robot with a Clockwork robot minifig for size comparison.

Zero to Hero Challenge Day 29

Today’s assignment: Think through your idea editorial calendar. Bonus: develop a regular feature for your blog.

The challenge for day 29 is explore my editorial calendar. I have followed a blogging calendar in the past. I ran a 365 project a few years back.  It was the inspiration for this macro photography project. For the past three Decembers  have blogged the LEGO  Star Wars Advent calendar This part October I created Robtotober, a robot a day, to keep me publishing regularly.

When I started Yoda Archives I  planned to post regularly. I wanted to post new images every Tuesday and Thursday.  It didn’t always work. Sometimes I made others I didn’t and eventually I dropped the planned schedule. I’ve been thinking of developing a weekly subject but didn’t want the blog to be too focused  on one character unless it was Yoda. I see the need for a regular feature but I’m not sure.

Some ideas I’m tossing around. Thorsday featuring Thor,  Spidey-Friday, Super Hero Saturday (less traffic on weeknends), New comic Wednesday a new comic book character post on Wednesday since that’s when new comic book hit the stores. Mythic Monday feature a mythic creature every monday. this one expand on Medusa monday i tried in the summer.

Any suggestions? Do you do a regular feature?

Robot Tober Day thirty-one

For the final Robot Tober post I sharing one of my old toys.  Gaiking is from the Shogun Warrior toy line. The figure was 2 foot tall and on of the coolest toys I’ve owned. This is a close up of his torso cause it is a face so reminds me of a Jack’olantern since today is Halloween.

LEGO has announced the newest LEGO CUUSOO review results. Full results here.

They have made decisions on the projects for the past three review periods. The good news id the next LEGO CUUSSO set is the Exo Suit. I’m a big fan of Mechs and this even ties in with my current Robottober event. So I’m happy for this set. It should be out something in 2014.
The bad news is no Portals or Zelda Projects. The Land Rover set is still under review so maybe it’ll get built. It’s a nice model but not one I’m interested in buying.

The Exo-suit

It’s still Robottober. Today’s post is a Yoda Archives classic, meaning it appeared on this blog back in 2011. It’s Gaiking from the Shogun Warriors.

Why is it the lost post? I posted it late on the 18th. But just found it in my drafts meaning it has not been posted to the blog but.
