Mattel's WWE Sami Zayn

NXT is home to some of the best wrestling talents these days. And one of them actually comes from our hometown of Montreal, Canada… Sami Zayn!

Rami Sebei is born of Syrian descent, currently signed to WWE at the promotion's developmental territory, NXT, under the ring name Sami Zayn, where he is a former NXT Champion. Sebei is best known for his work on the independent circuit under the ring name El Generico, using the character of a luchador from Mexico with a catchphrase of "Olé!".

I have to say that this has become one of Isaac's favourite new action figure. In our stories, Sami Zayn is one of the lead characters and is featured in most of our events.

Mattel's WWE Junk Yard Dog

Is there a better way to start our vacation than giving gifts to my amazing son?! I don't think so. Last July I got him some new Mattel WWE action figures.

First was the Junkyard Dog.

Of the absolute best and most loveable wrestler of the 1980s.  Sylvester Ritter (December 13, 1952 – June 2, 1998) was an American professional wrestler and college football player, best known for his work in Mid-South Wrestling and the World Wrestling Federation as the Junkyard Dog (or JYD for short), a nickname Ritter received while working in a wrecking yard.

Ever since they announced a Mattel version of JYD, I was on waiting for it. And it was totally worth it. Love the sculpt, paint and details.

Lego Jurassic World

We got the Lego Jurassic World video game on PS4. Isaac really wanted this one. Not surprisingly, it took him way to fast to complete the story mode. Still it is a cool game and it looks very good on the PS4.

Following the epic storylines of Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park III, as well as the highly anticipated Jurassic World, Lego Jurassic World is the first videogame where players will be able to relive and experience all four Jurassic films. Reimagined in Lego form and told in TT Games’ signature classic Lego humor, the thrilling adventure recreates unforgettable scenes and action sequences from the films, allowing fans to play through key moments and giving them the opportunity to fully explore the expansive grounds of Isla Nublar and Isla Sorna.

Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions

Last night, Isaac and myself attended the Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions concert!

It was a great. We got to experience almost 20 years of beautiful music, with the orchestral symphony taking us back into some of the most iconic moments of the franchise.

I managed to keep it a secret from Isaac up until we actually got there. He was surprised, to say the least.

Lego Ghostbusters Ecto-1

The Lego Ghostbusters Ecto-1 set has 508 bricks including four very cool minifigures of Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, Egon Spengler and Winston Zeddemore. Sadly no Lego Slimmer was included. Each minifigure have their own proton pack and accessories.

The Ecto-1 is very cool. Lots of small details and accessories. It was a fun vehicle to built (something I can't say about… the Lego TMNT truck).

It also comes with a very nice perfect bind booklet. Overall a must own Lego set!

Flea Market Hunting : Lego

We got this very cool Lego Agents bad guy, Dr. D. Zaster. Released in 2009 as part of the Agents 2.0 series. It is a very cool minifigure but it is sadly missing its hair.

Flea Market Hunting : Lego Space Police

One of our favourite Lego series was the Space Police. We finally found the minifigure of this alien bad guy, Brick Daddy.

It is only missing its hat. Love the face and paint of the suit.
