Got this very cool Hot Wheels DC Comics of the Joker. It was 50% off and it looks very cool so I grabbed it for Isaac and I.
I just saw this online last week and was stunned! I remembered owning this as a kid and loving it so much. In 1975, Kenner released Tree Tots, a Fisher Price's Little People competitor. Basically this was a tree that with the push of a button (on top of the tree) revealed a three-room house, complete with an elevator, staircase, swing, and garage. The playset included six figures: Treemont, the dad; Willow, the mom; Chip, the son; Honey, the daughter; Chestnut, the cat; and Barky, the family dog.
In 1984, Kenner reused the mold of the Family Tree House for the Ewok Family Hut. According to Recycling the Force, however, Lucasfilm would not allow Kenner to simply change the color and name on the playset:
“Although, in terms of design, the Ewok toy borrowed extensively from Kenner’s very successful Treetot house, it was entirely retooled. According to Kenner sources, Lucasfilm would not allow the toy company to tie a purely recycled version of the Treetot product to their license. So Kenner totally resculpted the toy. In the end, the Ewok Family Hut borrowed the basic design and interior workings of the older toy and simply cloaked them in an updated outer casing.”

It features the Superlaser control room and target monitor, Imperial conference chamber, TIE Advanced hangar bay with moving launch rack, Emperor's throne room, droid maintenance room, detention block, trash compactor, and much more! The Death Star measures 16” (41cm) tall and 16½” (42cm) wide! It took us lots of time to built it We love it and are extremely proud!
Through the year we got some cool Fisher Price Imaginext but a few days ago for Christmas, Santa gave Isaac tons of new Imaginext, which we'll soon showcase here.
3- The Walking Dead
Isaac loves zombies. So it was only a matter of time before he got into The Walking Dead. And this year we got some awesome Walking Dead figures from McFarlane.
4- Plants vs. Zombies
Jazwares figures, Funko figures, plush toys… we got them all. We love Plants vs. Zombies and can't wait to get more of them.
Spelunky is an indie action-adventure rogue-like game created by Derek Yu. The player controls a spelunker who explores a series of caves while collecting treasure, saving damsels, and dodging traps. Isaac and I play it on the PS Vita and PS3. Its one of our favourite game of the year! And for his birthday, I got him the whole collection of minifigures, which are totally awesome!
1- Shogun Warriors
As a kid the Shogun Warriors were the toys I've always wanted... and never got any. But now in 2013, we managed to find two of them; Gaiking and the coolest of them all Grendizer! The Shogun Warriors were the central characters of a line of toys licensed by Mattel Inc. during the late 1970s that consisted of a series of imported Japanese robots based on the then popular anime shows featuring giant robots.
We love Kenner's Aliens collection and this year we found lots and I mean lots of them! The highlight was the Aliens Queen Hive playset.
3- Adventure People
My All Time Great Action Figure is a Fisher Price Adventure People and in 2013 during a trip at the flea market we found it… Clawtron!
4- Masters of the Universe
We found lots of awesome original MOTU figures in 2013. Whiplash, Mer-Man, Tung Lashor, Hordak, Sy-Klone, Roboto, Battle Armor Skeletor, Leech, Rattlor, Two Bad and tons more!
5- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
One of our goals in 2013 was to find more of the original Playmates TMNT and we did. Sergeant Bananas, Ace Duck, Foot Soldier, April O'Neil and more.
We pre-ordered the Lego Marvel Superheroes video game on the PS3. This was one of our most anticipated game of the year. And with that pre-order, we got a very cool exclusive Lego Iron Patriot minifigure!
It probably took Isaac a minute to built. Very cool minifigure that will go great in our ever growing Lego collection!
Here's a look at the very cool Avengers Infinite Series action figures. Hyperion and Grim Reaper are on our must buy list.
Isaac and I will also like to wish everyone a happy holiday season! All the best, lots of toys, have fun and be safe! Of course we will continue our daily updates since we got way too many cool new stuff lately!
Penny, who's The Governors Daughter is one creepy little zombie. She comes with a bucket of fresh body parts are a leg, foot, hand, intestines, heart and Rick's hand. There is also a fish tank with trophy heads collected by her father. And one of the trophy heads can be used as an alternate for Michonne's Pet Zombie.
This "RV" zombie or screwdriver zombie is creepy and just want to eat some flesh!
During the opening scene of season 2, a mob of flesh-eating zombies swarm the group. Unaware of the flesh-eating zombie onslaught, Andrea becomes trapped in the recreational vehicle when one climbs aboard. Under attack from this "RV" Zombie, Andrea fights back, stabbing the zombie in the eyeball with a screwdriver. Our zombie figure simulates that scene with a flip-back head play-action and a removable screwdriver in it's eye.
This disgusting zombie is from the TV series 2 collection. It appeared in the second season and its known as the "well zombie". This is by far one of the sickest looking zombies so far on the series and this figure is a stomach-churning.
It has a pull-apart play-action that reveals his soft gooey guts inside!
At his birthday, Isaac got two new Lego Minecraft micro world sets. This is The Village.
It has 466 bricks including four micro figures; two pigs, a villager and a zombie. If you'r lucky you might even have more micro figures in your box like we did. Overall its a cool set that represent one of the biomes of Minecraft. Soon we'll open the next one…
And here's a look at some of the upcoming Lego DC Comics mini figures!
One minifigure we somehow forgot to talk about was the Barbarian! A very cool Conan-like minifigure.
There isn’t a monster, prison tower, or evil tyrant in the world that the Barbarian wouldn’t try to demolish. With powerful muscles from a life in the savage wilderness and a sword gripped in each hand, he smashes, bashes, and crashes his way through every obstacle in his path, no matter how tough or dangerous it may be.

Shopkeepers are old men who own the various shops that can be found in any of the main areas of the cave. Spelunkers can buy various items from them, provided they have enough money.
If you're feeling brave, it is also possible to rob a shop by either murdering the shopkeeper or by simply snatching the items and running out of the front door, although a successful heist is very difficult pull off.
Shopkeepers are merciless enemies and have zero tolerance for provocation.
Every shopkeeper carries a shotgun, and will not hesitate to use it as soon as you put a foot wrong in their store. They are also in surprisingly good health, capable of physically outperforming the Spelunkers in both athletics and toughness.
