Burger King Kids Carnival Toys

Sorry about the lack of content of late, I am really being ultra lazy, and it feels great! I did make this video though, so there! I also have just crossed into this strange realm of toys reviewing toys, Hmmm. I doubt these Burger King Carnival toys will be super popular without Movie or TV show tie-ins, but they are still kind of fun. The Gong makes for a nice accessory to Mumm-Ra. The little ski-ball flipper is kind of neat for the desk too.

Thundercats Ban-Dai 6 Inch Classic Mumm-Ra

Yeah... That comic pretty much sums it up. Great figure, shorter, missing a sword. I'm actually okay with them shrinking the classics line now, instead of half way through the line later. I just wish they did 8" Mumm-Ra instead of Tygra. Oh well, that is the beast of toy collecting.

The Original AJ's Toy Boarders Review

On my desk today are the awesome Toy Boarders from the Original AJ! These small green plastic figures are a witty play off of classic Army men, to celebrate something besides war. When you think about it, its pretty smart, add some wheels to the base of an army man, and you get a Skateboard!

Each pack of 24 has 8 spiffy Skaters in 8 stuntacular poses. My Favorite is "Pushing" guy, cause he kind of looks like me :)(

I have had lots of fun with these guys the last week or so. They are perfect desk toys to start. Anytime a phone call runs long, or an idea is burnt out, I trick one of these guys around the desk.

Solid all around, my only complaint would be slightly tip-able on some of the molds, and; Where are the skater chicks? Skating is not just a guy thing these days in my town. I hear there will be some Surfers and Snowboarders, so maybe we will see them then. If you would like to know more, check out the mothership at

And of course, enjoy my feature play time with them...

Batman with Torn Tights

You can't get any more basic than this Batman in torn tights. Another Grocery Outlet gem, Batman here comes with... well, nothing but a torn up costume. I am assuming the factory made about one billion of them, as every year at this time, another block of Batman figures like this one, are thrown up on the shelves. I will take it though. Maybe I will run into a situation where I need a less then spiffed up Batman.

He is of the same style as this Silver suit/cape Batman I found a few years back. I like how the fabric cape is draped around his shoulders and neck. Although, it bounces around a little more, then the normal neck capes.

Power Rangers Samurai: Lionzord

I stopped by a tall grass field on the way to work today, and saw this cat lumbering around. I asked if it wanted to come home with me, and maybe morph with some other animals to form a Megazord and it said okay.

For the main central Torso-Zord, the Lionzord is kind of weak. At least the Tyranozord, didn't look like a torso from every angle. The front of the Lionzord is okay looking, but the back looks like a Lion missing some pants.

I do like the Red and Black, and I do like how that is central to the Megazord's build. Just can't find a favorite angle yet.

So I guess, through five totally random coincidences, I have all five parts to the Samurai Megazord. I guess the next step is to figure out how to build it.

Power Rangers Samurai: Dragonzord

I got locked out of my car today! Luckily for me a strange man appeared out of the alley and handed me this free Dragonzord key lock breaker. It worked, and I got back into my car. Luck would also have it, it's Samurai Power Rangers brand, and matches the other three Zords in my collection!

The black and blue Dragonzord is really long, when folded out and sword tail inserted. I can get a better shot of him when he does sit-ups. He kind of reminds me of a wiener dog dragon with his stumpy feet.

He forms into the Samurai Megazord's left leg, and packs a sharp kick.

Power Rangers Samurai: Apezord

I was gutting the turkey this morning when out comes an Apezord! What are the odds, that the turkey we were going to eat had herself ate an Apezord?

The Apezord forms the Samurai Megazord's left arm, or I guess right if you were looking at it. The Apezord is pretty simple like the Turtlezord, in that you only have to flip a couple things.

I guess my only complaint with the Apezord, is if you want his arms down like a traditional ape, the good side of the detail points inward, and the open plastic shell part is outward. But that is not really too much of a problem as you can still position the arms in many ways.

He doesn't stand well either on its back feet, so you need those front arms for balance. Sometimes you can get him to do a trick for a peanut.

If someone told me at the start of the week that I would end up with three parts to the Samurai Megazord in all these random events, I would say neat.

Power Rangers Samurai: Bearzord

Since I did not, by any means, purchase an entire Samurai Megazord in an un-rational splurge purchase, I was happy to see this Bearzord fly threw my car window on the way to work. I can only assume the previous owner did not want, and tossed, just when I drove by. What are the odds?

I am totally digging the Bearzord. Do you want to know what is really cool about the Bearzord? When you flip his legs down, and head out from foot mode, you hear nice solid clicking sounds. Its like in the commercials, they always add that noise, yet you can never reproduce. Well this one solidly clicks and snaps and latches and clicks.

I also dig the simplicity! SO nice to have a transforming toy, that doesn't take a whole episode of Storage Wars to transform. The colors are Green, Black, a little gold, and some red eyes. So simple!

And with all that simplicity, it still pulls off bear to the nose. I could see this thing paneling down main street fighting stuff. His jaw opens too.

The Bearzord forms the Megazord's right leg, or is that left? I wouldn't know as I only have a Turtlezord and luck would have it, this Bearzord.

Excuse me while Bearzord and I go for a walk with the dog.

Power Rangers Samurai: Turtlezord

To rationalize a larger than normal toy purchase, I will pretend to buy the new Samurai Megazord in pieces. That's right, all I have here is a Turtlezord, NOTHING more!!!

A wee cute Turtlezord that is, awwww.

Don't get too comfortable with it though, as it can change quickly into an arm, and slice your brains out.

I highly doubt I will purchase any more parts to the Samurai Megazord?

Bears Cutler breaks thumb during Chargers game, out 6 to 8 weeks?!!!

Well thats great, Yahoo Sports is reporting that Cutler broke his thumb in todays game agaisnt the Chargers. I guess it was done when Cutler doing what he does best, preventing a touchdown after an interception he threw. At least Backup Caleb Hanie can do some things, and maybe at the same level as Cutler. On the other hand, it probably doesn't matter the way things are going with GreenBay or the 49ers.

Oh and here is my Devin Hester figure I bought for Cutler to play with, but now has to wait a few weeks.
