Here is my fun times with the McDonalds Happy Meal Madagascar 3 Europe's Most Wanted Toys. There are six to collect, so it should be pretty easy to get these. I like playing with bowing Alex and Cannon Shooting Marty the best. Gloria's wheels kind of stick on flat surfaces.
I like how they always seem to make a mini Zip line, with Melman on the wire set. He is quite large for a Happy Meal toy too. Gia is pretty fun to spin out of control. Its amazing how elaborate these Happy Meal action features function these modern days.
They are a pretty fun group, looking forward to seeing the movie, which I think is out this Friday.

And the take home is... The Imaginext Stegosaurus! Looks like I totally threw most of you off on this one. Well to be true, at first I did pick up the Legos, but I just wasn't into them, and I realized the gift card I had would cover something larger, so I switched out. This was before yesterday's post, so its all in the clear.
This actually isn't my first Imaginext Dinosaur, I got the blue Apatosaurus at Target for $18.99, a couple weeks back. Funny that it is larger than the yellow Stegosaurus. I just had to have these guys, and finally got around to getting a couple. They remind me of the DinoRiders toys from the 80's that I never had. Imaginext toys are so solid, with working action features, and lots of attitude.
The Yellow Stegosaurus comes with a massive working hammer that wacks a mighty punch with turn of figure platform. The armor is removable for softer times, although with those plates, soft is a figure of speech. The only draw back is not enough chrome. Most of the dino's have nice chrome helmets and it would have been awesomer if the plates were chrome too. Hmmm, maybe I could do this?
So that ends Which Won Wednesday #1, the Stegosaurus. Looks like Jboypacman called my trick and is now in the lead.

I have never done weekly themed posts at The Toy Museum, because I was afraid I would get locked into something I would never continue. I like to be in freestyle mode in posts, that way it stays nice and simple, no stress. Yet of late I am floundering for something to say, so from now on (or just today) let it be known as Which Won Wednesday! Basically I show two toys, one I purchased, and one left behind on the store shelf. You the fabulously awesome viewer will guess Which Won Wednesday, and I will then post the result on Thursday night with a somewhat elaborate toy review. I will keep a tally of who called what and at the end of the year, BAM the winner gets something! So, by playing often, your chances of winning increases. So here are the inaugural toys...
Lego Monster Fighters: The Swamp Creature Set, $7.99 at Toys R Us.
Imaginext: Armored Stegosaurus, $24.99 at Toys R Us.
So, Which one do you think I got???

I might have spent over 8 hours today on the finishing touches to this stop motion killer. As these Lego Minifigures vids are by far my most popular, I try to one up them each time. This time I pack in the entire line up of Series 7, nearly obliterating the poor Hippie in the process. My newer Camera can do somethings, and I really like being able to shoot in 16:9 1080 right out of the gate. I solved some of the flicker issues, but there always will be some. I think this turned out awesome, and I hope you all enjoy, share, take over the world with. Now I can take the weekend off! Maybe a Vlog/Squirrel Stampede variety show to follow next week...

The Movie Thor and Avengers Thor action figures just don't work for me, so I went with the Marvel Universe comic Thor. He appears more Thor like, if that helps. This version has Thor in his darker fatigues after he visited Dark Disney Land, or whatever the back of the box states.
The packaging makes sure that one of his helmet feather wings bends floppy like.
And it succeeded.
When I posted Masters Whiplash last week, Hobgoblin238 asked, "How does he match up to say...a 3.75 Thor figure?" I didn't have a Thor then, so this made getting this Thor all the more reasonable, as I wanted this one for awhile now. You can see Thor is pretty tiny, but it would be a good match up. And of course, IDstormtroopers, Thor would grab the lizard by the tail, swing like a helecopter, and throw him over a mountain we've never seen before.
