Okay, so maybe I resolved to stop buying new toys for the new year, but come on, you know my weakness for Batman! I have stoically avoided these Lego Batman Movie mini figures until today -- that didn't take long. So after 25 blind bags, this is what I got. Not a bad bunch at all -- I love the Batman variants! I could have bought a complete set on eBay for $89, but that … [Read more...] about Resolutions were made to be broken
My kids have a lot of LEGO minifigures, and by "my kids" I mean me. Sure, they might think that all those figures are theirs, but did they pay for any of them? Nope, not a one. So, I'll take the hot dog man, and Batman, and viking warrior, thank you very much. It's great to line all these figures up in a row and make the strangest parade route you've ever seen, but I thought … [Read more...] about L is for LEGO Minifig Displays
Holy mother of all things that are awesome. For a guy like me, this is what dreams are made of... If you ever visit my home, you need to keep your shoes on for fear of stepping on a LEGO piece, and watch those elbows, because if you're not careful you might knock a vintage 1966 Batman collectible off its shelf. With the announcement that LEGO will release … [Read more...] about The LEGO Classic TV Series Batcave is coming soon!
I had the pleasure of attending the LEGO Brickfair once again this past weekend as it returned to the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly, Virginia. The displays were just as mind-blowing as in previous shows, and it seemed like the number of vendors selling LEGO goods was bigger than ever before -- I'm not sure yet if that's a good or a bad thing though. By the time the 2016 comes … [Read more...] about LEGO BrickFair 2015
On Saturday morning, I rolled up to the a local church sale to find 120+ people lined up, waiting for the doors to open. I almost left right then and there, but I didn't know of any other big sales, so I got in line. By the time I made it into the church, about a dozen people had made their way to the toy tables. They were all starting at the front, so I decided those front … [Read more...] about Yard sale finds – LEGO and comic books!
The Lego BrickFair returns to the Dulles Expo Center this weekend in Chantilly, Virginia. As usual, the creativity on display is mind-blowing. Here are a few of the many highlights... There seemed to be more vendors than ever before at this year's show, which is a good thing as long as they don't crowd out the creators. That's a lot of Clone Troopers. I'm a … [Read more...] about Some highlight’s from this weekend’s Lego BrickFair
Th flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping, and people are hauling their crap out to the driveway hoping to make a buck or two. Yard sale season has arrived! On Saturday, some small neighborhoods near me were having their community sales. One was an older neighborhood, which I usually do well at, but it was a bust this time. The next neighborhood sale was the kind where … [Read more...] about It’s the most wonderful time of the year
My neighborhood held its Fall yard sale this past Saturday. The number of families putting out their junk seemed to have been smaller than usual, but the quality was not too shabby. Here's what I found... All that for under 20 bucks. I love the old games -- you see these fairly often in antique shops, but they're usually beat up and the boxes have split corners, but the … [Read more...] about Yard Sale Finds — Star Wars LEGO mega score!
