Kenner Predators

Here is our Kenner Predator action figures collection as of now.

Its small but Isaac is very proud of it. We sure hope to find more as some amazingly cool figures were created by Kenner in the mid 1990s.

Aliens, Predators vs. Terminator

It had to happen…

Aliens meets Predators meets Terminator.

The action figures battle that could destroy the universe.

Ripley and her friends planned what could be one last battle against the Aliens invasion. What the humans didn't know what that the Predators were on the hunt to kill the Aliens themselves.

Thankfully a robot from the future, The Terminator, came in to help the humans… but would it be enough to save humanity and our universe?

ToyCon : Robocop

While we still can't find a complete Robocop action figure (with helmet), we we lucky enough to find his car, the Robo-1. Its a very cool vehicle made by Kenner in the late 1980s.

We hope to find more like the bad guys, the Robo-Cycle, ED-260 and Robocop himself.

ToyCon : Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

One of the coolest figure we got was this original TMNT Krang!

This alien brain was the true villain of the original animated series, something that was changed in the updated version. Its a simple yet very cool unique figure.

ToyCon : Ben 10

We got one of Isaac's favourite Ben 10 monster from the animated TV series, Armodrillo.

Armodrillo has a yellow-armored body and looks much like a robot. His head is similar to a Greek Corinthian helmet with two ears on it giving him the appearance of an armadillo. Armodrillo has a gray tail and jackhammer parts on his elbows, wrists and hands, creating the impression that Armodrillo is a digging robot. Despite the mechanical appearance, all of these aspects are in fact biological and natural to his race.

ToyCon : Power Lords

One of my most wanted action figure as a kid is finally mine… Power Lords.

Designed by Wayne Barlowe, Revell released in 1983 the Power Lords collection. This was a cool line of action figures but one that I never got back in the days simply because we couldn't find them around here.

Adam Power is an earthling, given the cosmic Power Jewel to protect the galaxy from the evil dictator, Arkus. Arkus is a nigh invincible foe, determined to take the Power Jewel as well as Volcan Rock, Adam Power’s secret stronghold, in his quest to conquer the galaxy.

Two heroes join Adam Power in the war against Arkus. They are Shaya, the Queen of Power and Sydot the Supreme.

But evil Arkus also has helpers…

ToyCon : Alien

Last June we attended the annual Montreal ToyCon.

There was so many great action figures available we where going crazy. But we had to limit ourselves to a budget. We still got some great stuff.

First was the just release Funko ReAction Alien figure. This is one we've been waiting for and we love it. The details are great and it really has the look and feel of those late 1970s action figure.

Here's what ReAction will have for sale exclusively at the upcoming San Diego ComicCon!

One of Isaac's very first collection was Fisher Price's Imaginext. Six years later we still love and collect them. Last afternoon we had lots of fun with all of our Imaginext and Playskool's Marvel!

The evil Mummy lord took over the Ninja castle. He ruled over the land. But the team of DC and Marvel baddies wanted to take the castle for themselves. But they didn't know that the good guys from both sides also joined force.

Lego Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

A few weeks ago we got a huge batch of Lego TMNT sets. We featured them all here except one… until now. Here's the Baxter Robot Rampage (#79105) set.

It features 397 bricks and four minifigures (Donatello, Raphael, April, Baxter and a mouse robot). The robot is big and well made. It has shooting capture claw with reel function, 3 laser-flick missiles and opening cockpit in which Baxter can control the robot. There is also a glider, go-kart and skateboard.

Overall a cool set!

Isaac the Artist

Drawing is a form of visual art that makes use of any number of drawing instruments to mark a two-dimensional medium. Instruments used include graphite pencils, pen and ink, inked brushes, wax color pencils, crayons, charcoal, chalk, pastels, various kinds of erasers, markers, styluses, and various metals (such as silverpoint).

As a kid I've always loved the draw… now my son Isaac draws pretty much everyday. I though it would be cool to feature some of his drawings here from time to time.

Last night Isaac attended his very first WWE live event. It was Monday Night Raw and we had lots of fun. Isaac cheered, screamed and laughed. He totally loved it!
