Star Wars Epic Battles Medals

Anyone else participate in the Toys R Us epic battles online game? I passed during the Christmas season because I really didn't need to play another online game. Then they brought it back to get rid of the extra medals and I decide to try it. Turns out it's just a Where's Waldo type hidden picture and you only need to find 5 things to get the certificate you trade in for the medal at the store. So really this was more a hunt for a location that still had all the medals.

Can't beat free.

I saw these generic brick figures at Target. Hilarious Lego Avengers knock-off figures. Bowl Cut Thor! Low Rise Jeans Hulk! Whatever the hell the Iron Man figure is supposed to be!

Shy Guy

I wasn't certain how to feel about the entry of Shy Guy in the world of Nintendo line of figures. I really like the mini figure from the K'nex line of figures, but the world of Nintendo figure is out of scale with the other WoN figures and has limited articulation. But seeing it in person I knew I had to get it because it's a giant Shy Guy and that is awesome. Plus it turns out that it has more than three points of articulation because each of its feet are cut joints, so really it has five points of articulation even if two of them are very limited. But if world of Nintendois willing to count a head that doesn't move as a point of articulation they might as well count this as well.

Lego Ideas: Doctor Who

Oh what, I'm not going to buy this? The only thing that would make me more certain to purchase it is if the Dalek figures had Fu-Manchu mustaches. 

I'm also really thankful that this set probably got the ball rolling on including Doctor Who in the Lego Dimensions game.

But I gotta say, the booklet inside about how the set came about is a nice touch.

Playmobil Series 8

Female gladiator! Pretty awesome. I'm not sure if the weird B-exploitation movie armor makes is a knock against the figure or makes it better. But it's a figure of a woman with a badass face tattoo. And that shield is an awesome Playmobil accessory.

19th century soldier! I don't know what army this is supposed to be. Anyone? But I love that it came with a bayonet.

Grem In Trouble and Acer In Trouble

This two pack should really be called "Grem and Acer are sad." I guess. I've never seen the movie, I just like the toys of the Lemons. For some reason I buy every variant of them.

This is a thing? Adam West head? Shakespeare bust that flips open to reveal a button?
