No One’s Slave features a pin-up version of Princess Leia in the metal bikini, a beautiful drawing of Leia. But the one fans of this blog may find interesting is 92 Card Back which is inspired by the vintage Kenner line.  It is designed after the figure card backs which showed all the figures in the toy line.

Mornings mean Mega Bloks, Bloks for Breakfeast?


Mega Blok cars in General Mills Cereals

I had a nice surprise at the grocery store today. Actual toys in the cereals boxes. Specifically selected General Mills brands have a Mega Bloks car inside. There are four different vehicles; a pick-up truck, a SUV, and two cars. Each set has a set of Hello Kitty and Power Rangers stickers. I like that both themes are in each set. IT prevents a Hello Kitty fan being upsets if the got the Power Ranger set or vice versa. Or you don’t even have too add the stickers. That way you can use the blocks with your others sets. You can choose which set to decorate your car. Once the box is empty, you can cut out sections and make a ramp to drive the cars over.

I spotted them in Lucky Charms, Reese’s Puffs, and Honey Nut Cheerios. According to the General Mills blog the toys can also be found in Golden Grahams, Coco Puffs and Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

Brick Warroirs at five below


A quick heads up to those that collect third-party accessories. I just found some Brick Warriors Warrior packs at Five Below. Each pack is a themed set of accessories. There’s a gangster set with several guns, a western set, a scfi set, a minotaur set, and more.  The bag says collect at 12.  The back of the bag is clear so you know what you are getting.

I got a gladiator set with a spiked helmet, shield, anvil, scroll, larger hammer, and a pair of boot wings.

The packs are $2.99 which is a good deal. I know many of the pieces are $1.00 a piece online or at a convention.  There’s coupon code in the bag for some free items from brick Warriors.com. The code expires at the end of June so check your local five below.  I bought some pieces from Brick warriors at a con a few months back. I’ve been meaning to get some more so I ordered a few more items and you’ll see the results in another post.
