Our Favourite New Toys of 2012

1- Lego Monsters Fighters Vampyre Castle #9468
This incredible set contains 949 pieces and comes with 7 minifigures; Lord Vampyre, Vampyre Bride, two Bat Monsters, a skeleton and two monster fighters (Dr. Rodney Rathebone and Jack McHammer), one vehicle, traps, secret rooms and tons more! We love the design and all the details. The gate is very cool. The extended hidden staircase is a great idea. There is also an organ at the top. And it comes with all six magical Moon Stones.

2- Marvel Universe
We got so many Marvel Universe action figures in 2012 its almost ridiculous! Bulldozer, Skrulls, Iron Fist, Frost Giant, Hydra soldier, Namor, Daredevil, Ultron, Guardians of the Galaxy, Yellowjacket and Ant-Man, Doc Samson, Skaar, Red Hulk, Grey Hulk, Dr. Octopus and lots more!

3- Lego Super Heroes DC Universe and Marvel
I decided to combine them since both DC and Marvel are part of the Lego Super Heroes collection. So many great sets this year. This collection "helped" created our new Lego addiction. The Batcave, Batmobile and Two-Face chase, Batwing Battle Over Gotham, Catwoman Catcycle City Chase, Superman Vs Power Armor Lex, Dynamic Duo Funhouse Escape, Captain America's Avenging Cycle, Hulk's Hellcarrier Breakout, Quinjet Ariel Battle, Wolverine's Chopper Showdown… wow!

4- Batman Arkham City
We got more action figures based on the awesome video game; Catwoman, Batman, Riddler, Hush and Mad Hatter.

5- Marvel Legends Sentinel
An awesome huge figure I got from a friend at work. It stands about 16" tall! It has a very rough and damaged look. The sculpt and design is simply amazing.
