Lego TMNT Shredder's Dragon Bike

The Lego TMNT Shredder's Dragon Bike (#79101) set has 198 bricks and comes with three minifigures; Shredder, Foot Soldier and Donatello.

A very simple set. Shredder looks great and his bike is awesome! It has dual flame exhaust, rubber-treaded tires and dual flick missiles.

Lego TMNT The Shellraiser Street Chase

The Lego TMNT The Shellraiser Street Chase (#79104) is a big set that comes with 620 bricks including five minifigures; Foot Soldier, Kraang, Dogpound, Leonardo and Michelango.

The TMNT truck is big and features shooting cannon, rising wheel function, hidden rail wheels, a computer workstation, weapon rack, skateboard and seats. Sadly this is one of the worst Lego we had to built. It barely holds itself together. Too many bricks are "alone" and not logically place for everything to work. After many frustrating attempts, I decided to modify it a little. Now its better, and we can actually play with it.

There is also Dogpound's pizza delivery van and 2 ooze drums. Dogpound itself is a great minifigure.

Flea Market Hunting : Marvel Super Hero Squad

Last but not least we got Thanos!

One of our favourite Marvel character. We can't wait to see the live action Guardians of the Galaxy film in which Thanos is in. This should be awesome.

At his mom's, Isaac collects Marvel Super Hero Squad. We found a few so we grabbed them. First was Whiplash!

Flea Market Hunting : TMNT

From the original TMNT collection we got King Lionheart. A good guy in the series and one rather colourful character.

This royal robed roughcat is the result of Shredder's dirty work. Formerly a Shakespearean actor, Shredder tried turning this cat into "king of the mutants." But the Turtle dudes busted loose this beast before Shredder could give him the ol' whammy.

Flea Market Hunting : TMNT

We also got Genghis Frog! Released in 1989 as part of the second wave of TMNT figures.

Genghis Frog is one of the Punk Frogs, a group of four frogs that were mutated and trained by Shredder. As Splinter had named his Turtles after his heroes, the Renaissance artists of Italy, Shredder named the Frogs after his heroes - would-be world conquerors and dictators.

Its a cool action figure but sadly is missing all of his accessories.

Flea Market Hunting : TMNT

We got the original TMNT action figure of Rocksteady!

Release in 1988 as part of the very first series, this is one of the original bad guys. Rocksteady is a street thug who is mutated into an anthropomorphic rhinoceros. He is loyal to Shredder and is usually paired with Bebop. Its a cool figure that has rather aged well.

Flea Market Hunting : M.A.S.K.

The flea market hunting season is finally on! Isaac and I grabbed a few cool action figures during our trip there. First was this M.A.S.K. figure.

M.A.S.K. was developed by Kenner in 1985, along with an animated television series to help with toy merchandising. The animated series debuted the same year and ran for two seasons (1985 to 1986). It focused mostly on toys released during the first two series of the towline.

Isaac and I love M.A.S.K. but they are rather hard to find around here.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Next was the Rat King.

In the new animated TV series, the Rat King used to be Victor Falco. He is the telepathic Commander of the Rat Army. Cold-blooded and deceitful, formerly known as Dr. Falco, The Rat King is determined to rid the city of humanity and claim it for his rat brothers

While it is still a cool character, I prefer the 1980s version. As for the action figure, Isaac loves it. There some kind of Undertaker vibes to him.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

We went to Toys R US and picked up some TMNT. First was Cockroach Terminator.

With more than 12 points of articulation, this is a very cool action figure. Cockroach Terminator was born out of an experimentation from Donatello to create a spy cockroach. Its a cool figure that looks a lot like the one in the animated TV series.

Isaac and I decided to go to Toys R US to pick-up a few cool new action figures. But look at what Isaac had to try!

I used to be a huge wrestling fans. From the late 1970s to the early 2000s. But then wrestling changed too much for my own taste and gave up. But with the recent buy of WWE figures, and watching the latest WrestleMania. I got back into it with Isaac. Now we play WWE All Stars on PS3 and just bought the PSP version for our PS Vita so its lots of fun! We are also going to the live Raw event on July 7th!

Lego The Hobbit Bilbo Baggins

Along with the PS3 Lego The Hobbit video game, we got this nice minifigure of Bilbo Baggins.

Lego The Hobbit

We got the Lego The Hobbit video game.

The game will be set around the first two films of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy, An Unexpected Journey and Desolation of Smaug, with the third being included as DLC [1]. Playable characters include Bilbo Baggins and Gandalf the Grey, alongside all of the dwarves: Thorin, Fíli, Kíli, Óin, Glóin, Dwalin, Balin, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Dori, Nori and Ori. Warner Bros. adds that each dwarf will have his own unique ability, mentioning that Bombur can use his belly as a trampoline.

Overall a cool game but a little too short. Isaac finished it within a few hours.

Lego Hero Factory

A few days after getting the amazing Lego The Simpsons house, we went back to the Lego store and Isaac got himself a very cool Lego Hero Factory, FLYER Beast vs. BREEZ!

With 91 bricks, this set (#44020) features one wicked looking monster and a small BREEZ mini robot. He comes with a weapon and accessory. The beast itself has poison claws, skeleton wings, snapping jaws and antenna. Isaac loves it!

The living room features TV playing Itchy and Scratchy, couch, boat painting, telephone, carpet, purple piano and staircase to the second floor with family photos. Love it!

Lego The Simpsons House

We started to built the actual set, very nice! We built the lower section of the house, the car, some accessories and the garage. The detachable garage features the family car, tools, workbench, tool rack, vacuum cleaner, toolbox and a broom.

The family car with space for 4 minifigures features a dent in the front and an opening trunk to store Homer’s suitcase and a ‘radioactive’ bar from the nuclear power plant. Sadly we find the car to be a little too fragile. Lets not forget about the grill, wheelbarrow and air conditioning unit with ‘Property of Ned Flanders’ decoration, sausages, 2 garden loungers, flowerpots, a shovel, 2 fruit cocktail glasses, Lisa’s camera, Bart’s skateboard ramp with ‘El Barto’ graffiti and an antenna on the roof.

Isaac had an almost perfect school bulletin so for his hard work and dedication at school I have decided that in the Lego Store he could choose whatever he wanted…

Lego Marvel Hulk Lab Smash

This set wasn't available here yet so I ordered it online.

398 bricks, including such great minifigures as Hulk, Thor, Falcon, Taskmaster, MODOK. The first two are variation of their previous versions while the last three are brand new minifigures. They are all great. MODOK looks amazing. Falcon is very cool and we were surprise to see Taskmaster in there.

Overall a cool set. More about it soon…
