K'nex is still going with Mario, here is Series 5 of their long running mystery packs. Many of the same figures that have appeared in other sets. Not really sure what if any of these are brand new, but they are new to me. White Tanooki Mario and Cat Mario are the standouts, and I will be playing with these for some time. Its also nice to catch up on a Luigi and a Goomba. Not so excited about Toad. Fire Princess Peach is a good find too. Find these now, in the year 2015 me thinks.
Codes that I found, My guess is you will want to hunt for White Tanooki and Car Mario...

Series 2 for SpongBob Squarepants Mega Bloks blind packs, involve the new movie, Sponge Out of Water. Some nice figures fill out the collection, especially the Mystery Mystery figure. Good looking toys to play with!
These were the codes that I got, sometimes they're are more than one for same kind. But this might help anyways...

Happy Meal toys tries all sorts of things each and every time, this time for the new Spongebob Movie Sponge out of water, we get Straw Topper toys. They are pretty spiffy if you are into collecting alternative toys. Each looks to be a cut out of a main character, with ability to sit on a straw. Three have sound effects, three have action features. The direct to surface graphics look really good, as usually Happy Meal toys are low on detail. Find them in February and maybe some of March. Characters included are two kinds of Invincibubble, Plank-ton, Mr. Superawesomeness, Sour Note Squidward, and Sir Pinch-A-Lot Krabs. Fun drinking stuff!
I think Sir Pinch-A-Lot Krabs is my favorite, funny funny funny!

What started as a collect only Leonardo Turtle figures, quickly morphed into; just get the whole darn Mystic Turtles collection! Just add a cloak or a scary mask, and I am sold. Overall the figures are pretty fun. There are a few misfires on the paint; no camo paint on certain turtles, Raph missing his fire protection metal paints, and a few other small details, but over all fun stuff.
Also included are different weapons then their standard gear, makes for some new possibilities.
Look for these now in the year of 2015.

Plants vs Zombies Fun-Dead Figures from Jazwares! Crazy Dave, Cowboy Zombie, Potato Mine, Digger Zombie and more...
Over Christmas break I kind of went nuts over these Plants vs Zombies Jazwares Fun-Dead figures. I found most of them on Amazon and Ebay for various killer deals, and just now got to opening them. Its hard to say what series or waves each of these fall in, but I think its several years worth. The Crazy Dave figure started it all, and then I just kept adding. They are good, highly detailed standing figures (not cowboy), but not so much for play. I would be cool if someday the license went to a toy company that could do more. But for now, these are still very much lots of fun!
Too bad they didn't double up some of the smaller plants...
Cowboy Zombie pretty much needs to lean on Chili Bean to work...

The 2015 Dragons have been redesigned slightly, with new smaller figures that can ride any of the new slightly smaller Dragons. I have been thinking on these lots lately, and if they are better or not. I think. in the end, they are just different, and since they are easier to say, fit in the palm of your hand, I kind of like them now. Hookfang, Stormfly, will be next as always...

I am still into the Micro World Playsets, and with the addition of the new Super Mario Bros. U Frosted Glacier sets, we have snow! The tiles are simple and low play, but the more you get, the better the world is. This set could have used something for Mario to step on, but there is another set to match up with Luigi.
