Isaac's Christmas 2011

I love Isaac's expression when he opened his second Christmas gift! Yes he was in shock!

He got another Batman Arkham Asylum action figure, this time from series 2... Poison Ivy! We both are big fan of Ivy and loved her in the video game. Its a cool looking figure but with rather limited articulations.

Isaac's Christmas 2011

Isaac has been an amazing son all year long! I could go on and on about all the great things he did and just how much he has grown up. So it was no surprise that Santa was good to him. With my help, Isaac wrote an email to Santa, asking for some specific gifts. Lets see what he got!

First was the Batman Arkham City Robin action figure! Isaac started to collect these not too long ago. They are superbly detailed and sculpted figures. Now Batman will have some help fighting the bad guys!

Lego Ben 10

Here's some cool Lego Ben 10 creations from Isaac. We both wish Lego would make Ben 10 mini figures and sets. Hopefully with the upcoming big budget live action film, this will happen.

Thank you!

Two years ago, I decided to create this blog with my son to share our passion about action figures but more importantly to have an even closer father and son relationship.

The thrill to hunt down our favourite figures. Going through piles of junk at flea market to find that one hard to find figure. Going to Toys R US or our local figure stores to see whats new. Checking online what's coming out soon and order it. Our daily reading of other blogs dedicated to figures. Getting in and out of the car countless time when going around garage sale.

And spending hours and hours playing with action figures...

Thank you for reading our little blog.
Thank you for all the emails and comments.

Isaac and I really appreciate it!

Angry Birds: Knock On Wood Game

While shopping for anything but toys, Isaac found the just released Angry Birds board game from Mattel. Being the huge Angry Birds fans that we are, we had to get it!

Its a cool game but sometimes a little hard to build the actual structure.
Build! Launch! Destroy!

Marvel Universe

The other Marvel Universe action figure Isaac got was Darkhawk. Its a cool looking character who first appeared in his own self-titled series, Darkhawk #1 (March 1991).

Marvel Universe

We went to our favourite action figure store, Legends and got some Marvel Universe action figures! First one was Falcon. This is a cool looking figure. I used some crazy glue to stick his wings forever as they were always falling down while playing.

I've always wanted the Secret Wars figure of the 1980s but never found it. Falcon was introduced in Captain America #117 (Sept. 1969).

Star Wars

The Emperor had his full army constructing the Death Star (our kitchen table!). His evil plan to rule the galaxy was almost ready but one thing missing was the secret to eternal life (cloning process).

He enlisted Boba Fett and his Mandalorian soldiers to steal the secret from Jabba the Hutt who actually got it from the Rebels.

Needless to say that our entire place was taken over with Star Wars action figures which was a lotta fun!

ToyCon : Aliens

The last action figure Isaac got at the ToyCon was the recently released Alien from Neca. This is a huge fully articulated figure with lots of details and superbly sculpted , as expected by Neca.

Isaac was extremely happy to find this one because we've been trying to get it for sometime now. His Aliens collection is growing as fast as an chestburster coming out of someone!

ToyCon : Aliens

The other collection Isaac wanted to get more at the ToyCon was Aliens. This is yet another great collection released in the 1990s... 1992 actually.

Isaac found the impressive Space Marine Evac Fighter vehicle. Now I had never seen this before so we were both extremely happy with his find! It features firing missiles and Alien capture pod. Its a great spaceship. It actually came in new sealed in the box... but of course we opened it up to play with it.

I explained to him how to manage his finance during our little trip and he was extremely happy and proud of everything he got.

In the coming days we will take a look at all the amazing action figures we found but first, the here are some pics from the Quebec Lego User Group showcasing some of their great creations at the ToyCon.

Lego Robo Champ

We got the cool Lego Robo Champ game. The first to build a robot with all the correct color parts will win this year’s trophy and be named the Robo Champ.

This is not our favourite Lego game but it is still cool. There can be up to three players.
