Ha ha ha, I love Wall-nut, he cracks me up! To get a Wall-nut you have to go to the building sets. This guy is rolling fun on his bowling ramp. Poor zombie.

A second round of Simpsons blind packs opening a foot. So far, identifying packs has been pretty smooth. A small mix up with Lisa and Mr Burns happened I think, I totally had the Plutonium rod in hand, but ended up with a saxamaphone. Such a whimsical collection, just need to finish off with Burns, Millhouse, and Apu.

I stuck with just the Happy Meal "blue" toys this time for the new Spider-Man movie. An interesting collection this time of figures, vehicles, spiders, cards, mask, and a book. Now on to next month with the return of Pokemon!

Blind bag-valanche lately, this time imaginext's mystery packs. These guys are fun, but could again use a girl. Only 8 this time, and with the imprinted number on back upper left corner they are pretty easy to collect. Happy hunting!

Finally out and appearing are The Simpsons Lego Minifigures! 16 awesome characters out there, to go finding crazy. Found a few bags today at Walgreens, and I think May 1st is the official release date. I'll post a pic of my codes soon...

More mystery packs to infuriate yourself with. Rabbids Invasion only has seven to collect, but that just makes repeats more possible. These are fun though, always wanted some Rabbids on the shelf.

It was always a dream of mine to collect a bunch of really bizarre toy guns, mount them to a wall somewhere and pretend they were real guns. Maybe the Rabbids Plunger Blaster can finally start off that dream.

K'nex does such a fancy job with Mario, I had to try Plants vs. Zombies. 8 mystery figures are sealed inside the blind bags, four plants and four zombies. Again, its pretty easy to avoid repeats, as long as you check that number on the back with the little lines below. Overall the figures look pretty good, except for K'nex's dysfunctional brick bases. Those can be removed, and play can be resumed. My favorites are Bonk Choy and Traffic Cone head Zombie.
0 - Sunflower
0 - (Double line) Bloomerang
5 - Peashooter
1 - Bonk Choy
4 - Business Suit Zombie
0 - Cowboy Zombie
0 - Mummy Zombie
6 - Cone Head Zombie

A Catapult City is the place to be if you are a Crashling. The set features a bustling city that gets attacked via Crashling ramp, zip-line, and catapult. Lots of silly mayhem going about in capsule land. I think the best part of the set is the little stackable city on the destruction pad. Its fun to use the simple catapult and attack with.

I was floored to find out that Mario was next in line to get the Micro treatment from JAKKS Pacific. I was also floored that the build treatment matched the Smurfs Micro Village puzzle tile layout. So now the floor plan can get bigger and bigger. Its not with out some pit falls though, the price is high for just a few tiles that really don't do that much. Mario looks good though, and with a few more sets, you can quickly set up a nice level. There are Acron Plains levels and Layer cake desert levels to start. I can see this as only the beginning!

Its official, I am a Mixel nut. Too much fun with these guys for a good price too. The Cragsters were a lot cooler than I thought too. Shuff has lots of character, Krader's spin slap is strong, and Seismo is tall.

Crashling Meteors from Wicked Cool Toys are worth picking up a few. Not only are the little capsule toys fun, but half of the capsule shell itself is an active popping disc. The Sea Life set featured in the vid are Spongebobian, and If I see them again in stores, I think I will pick up the Alien pack.

I finally broke down and paid the high dollar for a couple Series 2 sets. They are no where to be found at local retail, only appearing on Amazon.com. I really needed this Circus Starter set, mainly for the cannon. It was the worth the extra bucks.
