Don’t get me wrong- Lego is awesome. But getting Lego-scale figures from Hasbro properties like Star Trek, Dungeons and Dragons, Transformers and GI Joe is just too great an opportunity to pass up. I grew up loving these properties and it is great to re-integrate them into my toy collections. Between these and the lego TMNT, BTTF and upcoming ghostbusters, it feels like the 80′s again. And if that doesn’t inspire you to get down on the floor and play with toys- I don’t know what can! These figures pictured here were just released at the GI Joe Collectors Convention and I was able to snag a set on ebay.
Thanks to my wife, who ordered enough Lego Movie Toys for us to earn a Martian Manhunter a couple weeks ago, and the custom Black Canary I bought online, my DC ranks are filling in nicely. What I would not give for a Hawkgirl!!!
The family and I saw the Lego Movie today and it was incredible! There was a lot of great humor and the animation was great- I love how they made it look like it was stop motion! My 9 year old boy and my 3 year old girl had a great time. The interaction of the boy and the dad at the end was spectacular. My son and I have had similar exchanges over the years.
