Mega Bloks World of Warcraft Creature 3-Pack

Another Mega Bloks micro figure day! This was a nice surprise while browsing Toys R Us. I had never seen this before, and I thought it was a really neat idea. For some people, half the fun of World of Warcraft is the creatures throughout Azeroth.

S.H.Figuarts Shinken Red

Hot damn! This was an amazing find! I was at Toys R Us, looking for anything new, and tucked behind some lame Power Rangers toys was a S.H.Figuarts Shinken Red figure! And it was marked down by $10! I've never seen these things in a store before, and I have no idea how this TRU location ended up with one.

I only heard of S.H.Figuarts just a few months ago when they announced the coming of the Red and Green Mighty Morphin figures. I immediately pre-ordered the Red Ranger, and I've been tracking the release of Power Rangers/Super Sentai figures since.

So yes, anyway, this find totally made my day, and I was giddy from the second I picked it up until I brought it home. It's a whopper, so this will be a doozy of a review.

Mega Bloks Power Rangers

It's  Monday, so a light day for Figured Out. Today I'm combing two different series of Power Rangers Mega Bloks: Megaforce (Series 1) and Samurai (Series 1). These are pretty much the same thing as the LEGO MiniFigure mystery packs, but obviously they are themed to Power Rangers Samurai or Megaforce.

LEGO MiniFigures (Series 10)

I'm pretty sure it's obvious by now that I love minifigures. Well, from LEGO and Mega Blocks, at least. So, you can count on Figured Out to feature every new series of LEGO MiniFigures. Last time, it was Series 9. Since then, Series 10 has come out, and I've been actively collecting!

(Pretty gold!)

Marvel - The Avengers - Shock Strike Thor

Fun fact: I typically enjoy Marvel characters way more than DC characters. I haven't looked too much into why that is; I've just noticed I'm more drawn to X-men and Spider-Man characters, and a few others from different titles. Like, the Avengers! I'm sure I'm not the only one who didn't know much about the Avengers before the latest movie came out, and I'm more than okay with that. The important thing to me is that I enjoyed the movie, and I really enjoyed the characters in that movie.

While browsing Target for new figures a while back, I noticed a rather large section of The Avengers figures. Different variations of different characters. Iron Man had about six different figures each with different kinds of brightly colored suits. Thor figures with weird accessories. And ZERO Hulk figures! A huge disappointment to me. Anyway, I grabbed the most normal looking figure I could, and ended up with this Thor.

Zeus and Hades

Woof. It's been a while. First, I was changing rooms in the house so that took some time away. And now I'm moving. So today is pretty simple, but it's still a set of toys that I really, really am happy to still own from my childhood.

Mega Blocks World of Warcraft: Deathwing's Stormwing Assault

Continuing  my obsession with Mega Bloks and World of Warcraft, today features one of the bigger sets available in the line. So let's say the Sindragosa and the Lich King set came in a big-ass box--Deathwing and Stormwind come in a huge-ass box. There are 809 pieces as opposed to the 150 for Sindragosa and the Lich King; it took me three and a half hours to build this one! Although it probably would have gone a little faster if the pieces were packaged together in a sensible way. There were several bags filled with pieces. At first, I assumed each bag contained the pieces to certain piece of the set. But no, that was not the case. 
Anyway, I'll get on with the post.
