LEGO Disney Princesses

Did you know LEGO is releasing a Disney Princess line in 2014? I had no idea. I’m not exactly their target market, but I can tell you that I’ve got quite a few nieces who are going to eat these sets up. Not surprisingly, the minifigures are based on the LEGO Friends line, but I don’t think they look that bad.

The first sets will be based around Cinderella, The Little Mermaid, Tangled, and Brave.

Further Proof ‘The LEGO Movie’ is Going to be Awesome

The LEGO Movie

Man, I am so ridiculously pumped for The LEGO Movie. It looks hilarious and I love the design of the film and how the characters move like real LEGOs instead of the bendy style of the LEGO video games and TV shows. The cast is amazing, and now I’m excited about all the upcoming tie-in LEGO sets.

The entire next series of collectible minifigures are from the movie and they’re all great. Abraham Lincoln? Panda Suit guy? Crazy hillbilly robot thingy? Awesome.

Besides the minifigures, there are going to be 17 sets based on the movie, and they look like so much fun. You can see them all over at Euro Bricks, but here are a couple of my favorites.

The New TMNT ‘Ninjas in Training’ Are Adorable

Ninjas in Training

It’s no secret that I love the new Nickelodeon TMNT action figures. I’ve been trying to keep up with all the awesome figures that have been coming out over the past year or so, and from the villains to the main figures I’ve been super impressed. Recently Playmates released a new batch of figures that contain what could be the cutest Ninja Turtles ever relased: Ninjas in Training.

Released as two separate packs (kind of lame, but whatever), these ‘Lil Turtles are short, stocky, and outfitted with wooden training weapons. Seeing as how I totally skipped the 2K TMNT show and missed out on the Toddler Turtles (read this and this), I’m excited to finally be able to own baby versions of the Turtles.

My first idea after successfully tracking down both sets was to put them in front of the Muppet Babies ColorForms set I have and post it to Instagram because I’m a big dork.

Feeling Blue

The League of Extraordinary Bloggers
This post is part of The League of Extraordinary Bloggers, a weekly series of blog posts started by Brian over at Cool and Collected. Make sure to check out his site and join in the conversation if you run a blog!

It’s been a while since I’ve participated in The League of Extraordinary Bloggers, but this week’s assignment was pretty fitting. Like the green challenge last year, this week all we had to do was post something blue, and one look at my Instagram page will tell you why I decided to join in.

I’m not very good at taking photos, and when it comes to Instagram I’m usually too lazy to break out my big-boy camera, so I try to make the best of the iPhone’s camera. A couple weeks ago I picked up a big blue poster board and made a cheap little backdrop, and I’ve been taking some photos on it, mainly of toys and stuff.

Super7 Alien ReAction

Something I’ve been following with great interest over the last year or so is Super7‘s upcoming line of Alien action figures based on prototypes that never went into production back in the 1979. This is pretty much the coolest thing to happen in the toy world for a long time, and I’ve been waiting to get my hands on a set of these retro-inspired figures based on one of my favorite movies of all time.

The preorders are finally open, and it looks like they ship in a couple months. You can preorder a set on BBTS for $65 and you’ll get Ripley, Ash, Dallas, Kane, and an Alien. Yes please.

Here’s an official description from Super7:
