Lego Star Wars

For his birthday, Isaac got this awesome Lego Star Wars set from his friend Nathan. The Mandalorian Speeder (#75022) comes with three very minifigures; Darth Maul with mechanicals legs and two Mandalorian Super Commandos. In total the set has 211 bricks.

As for the speeder itself, it was simple to build and looks great. There are some fun little features. It fires missiles. The bonnet of the speeder can lift up. There's also storage rack for guns at the back and an enclosed storage area which can easily lift up.

We love it!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Isaac and I recently started to watch the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles TV series and its great! With that in mind, we also recently started to buy the new action figure.

And before going out to the restaurant, we picked up Snakeweed.

He made his debut in the first episode of the series Rise of the Turtles, Part 1. Its a cool figure. He is mean and selfish and is highly dangerous and aggressive. He craves revenge on the Turtles for ruining his life, by turning him into a giant weed.

And here's a look at Leonardo from the upcoming live action TMNT film!

Montreal ToyCon : Ben 10

We love Ben 10. Its probably the very first series that Isaac got into. He was two years old at the time. The new animated TV series is great and our collection of Ben 10 action figures is a little insane by now but we still find some new one.

We got another version of Cannonbolt.

Cannonbolt is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of an Arburian Pelarota from the destroyed planet Arburia. He is a hulking, broad-shouldered alien covered in natural, yellow armor plating on his back, shoulders, and the backs of his arms.
