Isaac's birthday!

Before friends and family came over to celebrate, I let Isaac open one of his gifts. This big box contained four Lego Exo Force sets! This very cool Lego series is long out of store, so I found them used online. They are all almost complete.

Among the sets are #7701 Grand Titan, 7702 Thunder Fury, 8103 Sky Guardian and another one, which I can't identify. All fours are very cool, details, comes with mini figures and the robots itself are just great!

Skylanders: Cloud Patrol is a very cool game that Isaac and I played a lot on the iPad. Also released was Skylanders: Lost Islands, which Isaac is playing and Skylanders: Battlegrounds which is also for iOS but we haven't tried this one… yet.

Just released now is the third game for the console, Skylanders: Swap Force. The gameplay for Swap Force is based on the two previous games, Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure and Skylanders: Giants. Players use a portal to bring real life action figures into the video game. For the new game, Skylanders are able to jump, and there are new swappable Skylanders. These sixteen new characters have top and bottom halves that can be separated from each other and recombined with the halves from other characters. This allows for a total of 256 combinations between all tops and bottoms. Another new feature of the swappable characters is that each has one of eight distinct ways of moving. These different movement types are necessary to enter certain side areas in the game. Only characters with the correct bottom half can enter said areas.

The second console game was Skylanders: Giants, released in 2012. Isaac owns this one on the Nintendo 3DS.

The plot of this game is focused on how the history of the Skylands comes alive again in the present. The main villain from the last game, Kaos, finds himself in a toy store. He finds a Portal of Power, and goes back to the Skylands. the first level takes place 10,000 years ago to discover where the Skylanders and the Giants came from. 10,000 years ago, the Skylands were ruled by an evil race of giant robots called Arkeyans, until the Skylanders made a stand and began war with the Arkeyans. Eventually, the Giants, who were the first ever Skylanders, faces the king of the Arkeyans and removes the source of the Arkeyans' power, the Iron Fist of Arkus, but this victory also sent the Giants to Earth, ready for the player to use them.

Skylanders Spyro's Adventure is the first game in the Skylanders series. Isaac owns it on the PS3 and 3DS.

Toys for Bob was given the opportunity to revive a Vivendi franchise, and they chose the Spyro the Dragon franchise. Paul Reiche III noted: "attempts to revive broad-audience mascot franchises haven't seen predictable success in the game industry. Just creating a new Spyro game after the traditional fashion was unlikely to work" and reinventing the character as a "really gritty, strange otherworldly Spyro" didn't seem like a promising idea. Reiche says he had considered integrating technology with toys and games for a while, and it was the kind of concept that was so outlandish that it was the most promising idea the team sketched out for the brand.

There are eight elemental categories that a Skylander can be: Earth, Air, Fire, Magic, Water, Life, Tech and Undead. In addition to the standard figures, there are additional unique named variants.

Isaac loves Skylanders!

Skylanders is a video game series that is published by Activision. The games are played along with toy figures that interact with it through a "Portal of Power", that reads their tag through NFC. The "Portal" Changes colors as it interacts with the game.

"I have the Power!"

Faker managed to convince He-Man and his friends that he was now a good guy. But we all knew that this evil duplicate of He-Man was actually in service to the villain Skeletor.

Once they were out in the mountains (our sofa), Faker turned his back on the good guys. But Skeletor and his team of bad guys were nowhere to help Faker. The blue Faker was left all alone not only against He-Man and friends but also against Hordak's gang and the evil Serpent clan!

Not a good day to be Faker...

Check out this awesome Star Wars / Nintendo-verse mashup!

Trash Pack + Lego Marvel Maximum Overload

For sometimes now, Isaac has been talking to me about Trash Pack. These are ugly mini figures that lives in trash cans. He loves them and own lots of them at his mom's. Now he finally got his first one with me, at the movies when we went to see Cloudy with a chance of meatballs 2.

Disney and Marvel have created a new web series of animated tales for their superheroes, check it out!

Yesterday was THORsday!

We went to the theatre to catch the film, Thor The Dark World. A great film that brings the Marvel Cinematic Universe to new levels. Lots of cool new aspects are introduced in the film. It is visually stunning, amazing fx, good acting, well paced and has two post credits sequences.

Shogun Warriors Goldorak!

Now I've managed to find online the missing missiles, the double headed, sickle-shaped axe (it comes apart and the pieces are stored in his shoulders) called "Hakken"and replacement stickers. All I have to do now is order them.

Unreleased in the US, Goldorak (also Grendizer or Grandizer) is more than likely the rarest of the Mattel Shogun Warriors released outside Japan.

Our collection of Shogun Warriors Jumbo Machinders is growing nicely! Never I though we would find any of them. Now we are missing Dragun, Mazinga, Raydeenm Godzilla, Daimos and Rodan.

Shogun Warriors Grendizer!

We went to a local manga store to look at what they had. And there behind the counter I saw this Shogun Warriors Grendizer. Last time I've seen one, I was a little kid. I asked to see it. The owner told me she had just got it from an old man. It wasn't in perfect condition but still… I had to get it. After talking with her for sometime she finally came up with a price… sold!

Flea Market Hunting : Lego Toy Story + new Lego Minecraft

Yeah! Isaac scored this very awesome Lego Toy Story set for next to nothing!! Buzz's Star Command Space (#7593) has 257 bricks including two mini figures.

It is a very nice set. We love the colours and details. Plus the Buzz Lightyear and Zurg figure are simply awesome!

Lego has announced in a video they are creating new LEGO Minecraft sets in minifigure scale and need your help in getting ideas. Over on their Facebook Page, you can give your input on various ideas including which Creeper do you like best. The Minecraft theme has been a huge success with their three Micro World sets and it’s pretty cool that they’re expanding to minifigure scale sets now.
