Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions

Last night, Isaac and myself attended the Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions concert!

It was a great. We got to experience almost 20 years of beautiful music, with the orchestral symphony taking us back into some of the most iconic moments of the franchise.

I managed to keep it a secret from Isaac up until we actually got there. He was surprised, to say the least.

Lego Ghostbusters Ecto-1

The Lego Ghostbusters Ecto-1 set has 508 bricks including four very cool minifigures of Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, Egon Spengler and Winston Zeddemore. Sadly no Lego Slimmer was included. Each minifigure have their own proton pack and accessories.

The Ecto-1 is very cool. Lots of small details and accessories. It was a fun vehicle to built (something I can't say about… the Lego TMNT truck).

It also comes with a very nice perfect bind booklet. Overall a must own Lego set!

Flea Market Hunting : Lego Ninjago

The snakes from the Lego Ninjago series are by far the coolest of the whole series. We already owned a few and now we got this one, Chokun!

Flea Market Hunting : Lego

We got this very cool Lego Agents bad guy, Dr. D. Zaster. Released in 2009 as part of the Agents 2.0 series. It is a very cool minifigure but it is sadly missing its hair.

Flea Market Hunting : Lego Space Police

One of our favourite Lego series was the Space Police. We finally found the minifigure of this alien bad guy, Brick Daddy.

It is only missing its hat. Love the face and paint of the suit.

Flea Market Hunting : Kenner's Terminator

Yes! We finally got another Kenner Terminator action figure. We love all of the Kenner toys from back in those days; Aliens, Predator, Robocop, Ghostbusters and Terminator.

Great details and sculpt. Hope to find more soon.

Flea Market Hunting : Batman The Brave and the Bold

We got the very cool Batman The Brave and the Bold action figure of Despero! Love the look of this one. Cool details and colours.

Flea Market Hunting : Sectaurs + Marvel Universe Live

We finally found this very cool Sectaurs little creature, Bitaur. I used to own it as a kid. Always loved Sectaurs. Kind of surprised that it was never rebooted.

We are about to leave home to go to the Marvel Universe Live experience!!!

Flea Market Hunting : Pokémon

Isaac recently got into the whole Pokémon hype. He is now seriously addicted to it and I think there is no coming back! Fine with me since he is so passionate about it.

While at the flea market we find this Pokémon called Golem. Cool action figure.

Lego The Simpsons Series 2

Here's all of the Lego The Simpsons Series 2 we got! We are missing a few we still want such as Maggie and Santa's Little Helper, Waylon Smithers, Patty, Selma, Comic Book Guy, Professor Frink and Hans Moleman.

Lego The Simpsons Series 2

We also got Edna Krabappel. Bart's teacher and figure of authority.

Springfield Elementary fourth-grade teacher Edna Krabappel works diligently to provide her students with precisely the minimum education required by law. At first glance, she may seem unenthusiastic. And she is. Enthusiastically so! But underneath her hard shell, Bart’s teacher is a woman who deeply loves having her summers off. Why give that up just because of some aggravating kids?

Lego The Simpsons Series 2

Martin Prince! A funny character that finally gets a Lego.

A lute-playing, tattle-telling teacher’s pet, Martin Prince is the smartest kid in Bart’s class, a fact that he proudly mentions whenever possible. Perhaps not coincidentally, he is disliked by most of his classmates at school, as well as many of the teachers. Martin is the leader of the Super Friends, a group of misfit brainiac kids who meet secretly in the school’s deserted boiler room, where they can do extra-credit projects without fear of reprisal from their fellow students.

Lego The Simpsons Series 2

Groundskeeper Willie is a must!!! One very underrated character.

Hot-tempered Scotsman Groundskeeper Willie knows that manners are for weak-kneed, bath-taking lily-huggers! The groundskeeper and janitor at Springfield Elementary, Willie is proud to call his tractor, Willy, his best friend. This makes his floor buffer, Willy, very jealous.

Lego The Simpsons Series 2

Fallout Boy Milhouse is crazy cool! Love his look and he comes with a Buzz Cola can!

Sidekick to the superhero Radioactive Man, Fallout Boy is much less powerful (and slightly less radioactive) than his mighty mentor. And when it comes to being ineffectual, nobody’s more effective than Milhouse! That’s why he’s the perfect fit to play Fallout Boy in the big-screen movie based on Bart and Milhouse’s favorite comic book. Will fame and fortune change our young hero? Probably…but you can bet he’ll be back to normal by next week!

Lego The Simpsons Series 2

Dr. Hibbert.

That's a very cool new minifigures. Happy to see Lego making more of these as part of their collection.

That rarest of rare doctors, the general practitioner-surgeon-pediatrician-anesthesiologist-orthopedist-E.N.T-allergist, Dr. Julius Hibbert is Springfield’s only competent physician. Then he lets out one of his trademark jolly chuckles moments after delivering bad news to a patient, and you have to wonder if maybe Springfield has ZERO good doctors.

Lego The Simpsons Series 2


One of the coolest of the new Series 2.

Who is this masked avenger of the night? It’s Bartman, the mysterious four-and-a-half-foot crime fighter who guards Springfield’s streets. No one is beyond the reach of his trusty slingshot, be they supervillains or tin cans placed on fenceposts. Very few know (or care) that Bartman is secretly none other than Bart Simpson, wearing a homemade costume. But hey, every show needs a superhero, and this is the best we’ve got!

Lego The Simpsons Series 2

We finally got a few Lego The Simpsons Series 2 minifigures.

First there's Lisa who this time comes with Snowball II.

Sometimes, Snowball II can be a hard cat to love. Fortunately, Lisa Simpson doesn't mind if her beloved pet drinks out of cereal bowls, deposits hairballs on the carpet, or even uses Lisa’s prized bookshelves as a scratching post. As far as Lisa is concerned, her cat is the finest, most noble feline who ever lived. Even Snowball II wonders where on Earth Lisa got that crazy idea.

Skylanders Kaos Trap

Activision finally released the Skylanders Kaos Trap!

While the actual video game quickly gets too expensive, this is still a cool trap to own. Kaos is the main bad guy and now you can play as him.

Lego Superheroes Marvel's Ant-Man

The Lego Superheroes Marvel's Ant-Man (#76039) has 183 bricks including three very cool minifigures. It is a small set but still fun. Totally worth it especially for the minifigures, which are all brand new.

Lego Superheroes Marvel's Ant-Man

We got the Lego Superheroes Marvel's Ant-Man set a full two months before it was supposed to come out!

Marvel The Art of The Movie

We got the two Marvel The Art of The Movie books we were missing; Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: The Art of the Movie Slipcase and Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron: The Art of the Movie Slipcase.

They are HUGE! Both have 336 pages of exclusive concept artwork, behind-the-scenes photographs, production stills, and in-depth interviews with the cast and crew. They are must own for die hard fans and collectors like us.

WWE: The Attitude Era

There is a reason why the WWE: The Attitude Era is still talked about today. It was a time when wrestling wasn't afraid to take risk. It was a time when new wrestlers became superstars that surpassed the whole concept. It was the time of Stone Cold Steve Austin, D-Generation X, The Rock, Undertaker, Mankind and countless others.

This is a very cool 208 pages book that takes us back into the WWE: The Attitude Era. Tons of colour photos to relive this great wrestling era.

Wish they had made more.

What if?!

What if Jason, Leatherface and Michael decided to join the Street Fighters competition?!

What if?!

What if Dexter decided to stop of the most brutal and vicious killers the world has seen?!

Sunday, August 2, 2015


A few years ago, Bif Bang Pow made this awesome 7" action figure based on the Dexter TV series. There was some controversy about it but in the end, this is a very cool action figure that not surprisingly  fits very well with the McFarlane Toys Movie Maniacs collection.

The Dexter figurine has real cloth outfit and comes with a handsaw and welder's mask with flip-down visor. Very cool!

McFarlane Movie Maniacs Jason Voorhees

Another crazy action figure from the original McFarlane Movie Maniacs collection. This is Jason Voorhees from the Friday the 13th films. The details are insane on this one. Love torn up clothes and the huge machete. He also came up with a spear and a stand with the poster of Jason Goes to Hell.

He does look menacing.
