Eye popping upgrades.

Well MOTUC has wound down to the point where what I buy is few and far between (just because I am only buying the figures I just can't pass up) so here you have the last one for this year, Mantenna!  He comes with extra eyeballs to attach tomake it look like his eyes are popping out.  He actually has four legs and he is definitely in the top 5 of this whole line for me.  Read the bio below.

I also upgraded my Desert Skiff and Sarlaac so that I could have a MUCH MUCH MUCH better Boba Feet, a cooler Lando, and a new Skiff guard guy.  I am just waiting a package from to finish my lego minifigure display and then I will put up pics of that.

Wave 50 and beyond

After way too many delays wave 50 of Marvel minimates came int he mail today (along with wave 51)  This wave was voted on by fans and even though several that I voted for didn't win (mostly Iron Man stuff) this is a great wave.  The army builder is the Nova Corps Centurion (I am only keeping one but show two inthe pic so you can see the alternate head). Then you have Baron Zemo I and II, a long awaited Captain America villain.

Then you have the Danny Ketch Ghost Rider who looks great and then ONSLAUGHT!  Super cool.

Then to round out the wave you have Cyborg Spiderman and Songbird with a really cool base.

Wave 51 included Nick Fury Jr and Mariah Hill. The army builder was a Heavy Shield Agent who is on the jetpack here. I took the extra pieces that you can put on Nick Fury to make Captain Steve Rogers and put those parts ont he other Heavy Shield agent to maximize what I got out of this wave.

Then you have Sam Alexander Nova (which my son was excited about since we just watched Ultimate Spiderman on Netflix) and then Superior Spiderman which is actually Dr Octopus mind inside of Spiderman.

Lastly you have Shann the She-devil from the Savage land and a Savage land Reaper which is just Sauron to me.  Great minimates here with of course more to come by Christmas!

Lego store in Utah just in time for my minifigure craziness

Ok just to start off, I saw these and couldn't resist as: first I love Donatello, second these are adorable!  Can't wait for ssn 2 of TMNT to start this weekend.  Love these baby turtles and I dare you not to too!

So I am working on some lego minifigure displays as well as trying to update my Jedi/Sith collection as you can see here.  I purchased this updated landspeeder and sold my old one so that I could get a non yellow face Tatooine Luke and old Obi Wan.  I also got a bunch of other minifigures off of ebay.  I will of course be posting my awesome display when it is complete in the next week or so.

I got Deadpool off ebay because I love Deadpool, then the Wonder Woman, Arctic Batman and Man of Steel Superman were keychains that I bought this afternoon at the new Lego store at a mall up at the Valley Fair Mall.  They will also all be going on my minifigure display.  Fun times!  My sister in law also got me a Donatello keychain at the Lego store at Downtown Disney which is good since the Lego store here only had Raphael!
