I don't know too much about Skylanders the game, but what I know about toys gets me excited to play around with these guys. This style of Happy Meal toy is my favorite. Yeah they are probably way off in scale, and other styles, but they are fun to figure out and play with. Props to Rattle Shake, Free Ranger, and Chompy!

I enjoyed the yellow Electroids so much, I went ahead and got the Infernites. They seem like a good value too, only about 5 bucks a bag.

My un-vaulted Lego bin keeps giving...
1988 Lego Space Futuron Sets! Again, I figured I would have less than 50% of the parts to complete any of these old sets. Turns out I had closer to 95%!!! Futuron sets where like the Next Generation of Lego Space sets. You can even see it in the uniforms...
I completely forgot about the Lego Futuron Twin-Winged Spoiler 6828 until I saw instructions online. I knew those strange wing pieces did something cool, they turn into legs! I so have a walking lego leg space fetish!
The Lego Futuron Hovercraft 6875 was an all time favorite of mine for throwing down the stairs, exploding, and rebuilding. Fun Fact: Side pods detach into drones.
The Lego Futuron Strategic Pursuer 6848, is another leg walking set. This one had really good articulation for a late 80's toy set.
I almost have enough pieces for another Futuron set, but I can't figure what they are for yet. Maybe I got a few spare parts from friends. Such fancy sets of yesterday!
Then there is this older space set. I'm just not sure which set its from. Either 885 Space Scooter or 6803 Space Patrol. Hmmmm, I have parts for either.

After seeing Benny in "The Lego Movie" I was really curious to see how my ancient Lego collection was doing in my Parent's basement depository. I was pretty sure that my 1986 Lego Alien Moon Stalker would be in dire shape, missing at least half of its pieces. Turns out, I had enough to rebuild it, with just a few substitutions!
Probably one of my all time favorite Lego sets ever made, because of its many features. A quadrupedal walker (like a Star Wars AT-AT), with two detachable side ships, and two missiles carried in its center.
The flexible gripper arm is more awesome than you can dream awesome.
I have two extra Space Minifigures, which I am not sure what they are from, but they are a nice addition to the team. One space missile is incomplete. I am more than thrilled that I have my original set, and did not have to find someone else's through eBay.
Also in the bin of Legos, that I had to rebuild from, was a Blacktron Space Walker!!! I apparently have something for walking Lego ships? Again, amazing that I had enough of the pieces to rebuild.
(The guy on the red bike is clearly a serial killer btw.)
And for a quick insane size comparison with the newer Star Wars AT-AT!
So glad I took the time to look, and rebuild the Moon Stalker. Also glad the internet has all the instructions still around, and a tablet to work from! This set will again be displayed and played for years to come.
