Construct Bots are one of those toys that seem to fill up the shelves and never go anywhere, but sometimes they are actually kind of fun to pick one up. They have pretty good size to them, and are more durable than your regular Transformer.
Grimlock and Optimus Prime are a good duo to get, like in the new movie Age of Extinction, Prime does some Grimlock riding. They do this pretty good in toy form. Grimlock has both good robot and dinosaur forms as well (usually the alternate forms are pretty bad).

The year must be moving fast as Series 2 Lego Mixels are already hitting shelves! I liked the orange bags the best, so I went with that first. They are from the flexible plastic lands I guess, but resemble sea life crabs and squids. The Flexers Max looks amazing but the pdf is not loaded yet, and I didn't want to attempt from one sided picture. Find these at Toys R Us and pretty much anywhere Legos are sold.

A good update to a classic, Evasion Mode Optimus Prime takes on the form or yesteryear. He looks awesome in both modes, and will continue my pile of Primes well.

Changing it up this time, Happy Meal tries a Pokemon style toy game (no figures). The Poke Balls or Pucks shoot out a disc that pops up a Pokemon character. You can set your game piece to an X, O, or Square for some Rock Paper Scissors style action. Each toy has a different Poke ball color, making for a very pretty collection. I don't think you need to collect all 12, maybe just a few of your favorites. They all look really nice, and shoot pretty far. Look for them now and throughout the next few weeks.
Characters included are #1 Chespin, #2 Pikachu, #3 Blastoise, #4 Fenneking, #5 Pancham, #6 Venusaur, #7 Froakie, #8 Xerneas, #9 Charizard, #10 Helioptile, #11 Yveltal, and #12 Mewtwo!

Scauldron the dragon can be a tricky find, but it looks like he is starting to make store shelves a little more often. Scauldron is a fun play with really springily flappy wings and spraying water head. Good color too. Keep an eye out for him in what is left of Berk stuff, as the newer How to Train Your Dragon 2 stuff floods the shelves.

I am eagerly awaiting the collection of Pokemon X & Y toys coming out this friday! It has been over a year since Pokemon appeared in the happy meal box.
Expect my run down soon!!!

There are two Bewilderbeasts out there, Gray and White. Toys R Us has the exclusive White version. The toys are mostly the same, with the Gray chained up on the horns, and the White comes with two ice projectiles instead of one. A miniature Cloudjumper also comes with the White, while a Toothless comes with the Gray.
I think I like the White slightly better, maybe looking cleaner or something. They both are fun toys to knock stuff around with and battle each other.

Got to say AWESOME on this one. The red stripes just look really sleek. I guess maybe if you don't have a Toothless yet, get without stripes, but if you are in need of a striped one, you must get this!!!

Ionix brick Dragons are out for the new movie, and they are not that great at all. From first appearance they look pretty cool, but with a "Shapeshifting Block" core, they are rather lackluster. Well, at least Toothless, Stormfly and Hookfang have the bad build. I have yet to try Meatlug and Belch and Barf who have a different shapeshifting brick. Get them if you really like the Dragons, avoid if you are on the fence.
Cloudjumper is one of the new Dragons for How to Train Your Dragon 2. He is a maroon mix of an X-wing and an Owl. Cloudjumper is a little smaller than some of the others, but he makes up it up in feeling more intricate. Flapping wings are fun.

I'm Pretty sure I am going to take some flake for reviewing this Legends of Oz Dorothy's Return Dolly, but my little girly needed a doll. This one sings all Lea Michele like, and fights Megazords, so she is pretty cool.

The Bewilderbeast final battle set for How to Train Your Dragon 2, is a head butting roaring good time. Scaled a bit larger than the regular sized dragons, Bewilderbeast has got it going in the action feature department. Mouth missiles and head and arm movements. A good toy for knocking stuff around!

The deluxe Acorn Plains Mario Micro Land set is probably the best set you will get for your money out of any of these sets. All five pieces look nice, do some things, and look great displayed. I think there is one more pack out there I need to hunt down.

Its hard to believe with all the Dragons figures I have looked at, I never really tried the Humans out. Maybe they were too docile looking. Now with the new movie coming, there are updates to the humans with armor and better battle gear. They are still in the same scale, and Hiccup fits nicely on top of Toothless. Drago, is a little bulky, and hard to sit though. These are pretty fun to sit on Dragons, and make play even more daring. Look for them now appearing on shelves.

Mini Dragon toys are introduced for the new movie. The Trap toys are kind of a fun novel toy to play with. See if you can get Toothless to escape this crafty trap.
