Super Seven Samurai This!

The old Toy Museum blog is seven years old today!

SO, lets look at seven toys that are my all time favorite. Starting with #7 Batman Legos. Can't stop getting them, they are great. Every time I build a set, I pretend I am Batman in his shop building his next crime fighting weapon. This little bike is from the new BatCave set, which I will show more of in upcoming posts.


#6 Mighty Max Lava Monster. Given by a good friend on his LDS mission of all places, the Lava Monster is one of my favorite unique toys in the museum. Can't remember if I have opened him up on this blog fully, but he has a sweet Mighty Max mini adventure inside, with lots of fun to be had.
(I should note, I am not LDS :) not that there is anything wrong with that. Go Mitt Romney)

#5 Temple of Doom Battle Damaged Indiana Jones. This figure cost me a pretty penny, having to get the whole wave at once, but it was worth it. His bag even has some Sankara stones in it.


#4 Lifeline. I have plenty more Joe's that I like just the same or more, but today is Lifeline's day. I really get a ride out of this new 30th anniversary edition. I had many adventures with vintage and now modern Lifeline.

#3 The Pandorian Direhorse. I was originally appalled by the Avatar toy line, but through silliness, I fell in like with the toys. Mainly the Pandorian lifeforms. Hey its a horse, but add a couple legs and some antenna and paint it blue, and you got something new!


#2 Blue Power Ranger. Love me some blue Power Ranger. Oh God, hope that doesn't get interpreted wrongly. As I have said for seven years, I like blue the color, so that is my Ranger of choice. No other reason. 

#1 Optimus Prime Generation 2. This whole list is always changing hourly, but one constant is Opty Primus here.  I never had an original G1 Prime, so when G2 came out in like '93, it was the greatest day of my life. He's a bit ragged these days with some sticker wear and loose joints, but still Prime in the Toy Museum.

Wow, congrats on 7 years! Mine just turned 1 a few months ago. I can't imagine how things will change in 6 years.
