Kidrobot Megatron & Cobra Commander Vinyl Review


One of the awesome goodies Matt at Nerd News Today and I were able to acquire at Toy Fair 2018 is the Kidrobot Megatron and Cobra Commander vinyl figures based off of IDW Comics "Transformers VS GI Joe" comic series by Tom Scioli and John Barber.

I'm not as familiar with the comic series, but I'm a big Transformers and GI Joe fan. I wouldn't have initially thought to combine Kidrobot with these franchises, but I was wrong. I love this style, and the boxes alone make me want to display them somewhere. Watch the video to see the rest of our thoughts on this.

Unboxed: Lego "Ninjago" Movie Mini-Figures

I think I've spoken about this before, but I have a serious minifig addiction. If I could, I'd have an army of minifigs lined up all around my home. Luckily, I don't have enough space (or money) to do that, but whenever I get the chance, I have a tendency to buy as many blind bags as I can.

Ninjago is a little weird for me. I don't really know the franchise. I've only watched a little of the show, and I've seen most of the movie. I was going to initially pass up on these blind bags, but then I saw what was included in this wave, and I was done.

I grabbed Matt from Nerd News Today, and the rest is history. Here's what happened.

Toy Review: Captain Phasma & Finn LEGO Brickheadz


As a palate cleanser from the Rick and Morty debacle, Matthew from NerdNewsToday and I decided to have some fun and put together a couple of LEGO Brickheadz. Captain Phasma and Finn are part of the Star Wars collection of Brickheadz. Rey and Kylo Ren complete the set of four.

We filmed this immediately after completing the Rick and Morty set, and to be completely honest, I was still a bit wrecked from that, but I love these Brickheadz. I find them weirdly therapeutic, and because of that, my collection keeps growing. Check out the video and see what I'm talking about.

Toy Review: McFarlane Toys Rick & Morty "Spaceship & Garage" Construction Set


Matthew from NerdNewsToday and I are back with the grand finale of our Rick and Morty construction sets by McFarlane Toys adventure. Adventure is I think the best way to describe it, because there have been many ups and downs regarding this series.

And then we get to this. The largest set of the line, the Spaceship and Garage. 293 pieces. As you can probably tell from the thumbnail, a little stress might have been involved. Due to the nature of the set instructions, it's really hard for two people to try and work on this set at the same time, so Matthew let me handle the construction. Emotions were involved. Lots of emotions. So, buckle up, strap in, and watch as I descend slowly into madness as I attempt to put this set together.



If you want to know what happened after the cameras turned off, sound off in the comments and I'll reveal the rest. I hope you enjoyed my pain.

Happy Birthday LEGO!

That's right, LEGO turns 60 today!  It's amazing to hear it because this company hasn't really changed over the decades. This brick has been loved for generations past, and generations to come.

Looking back at the company, LEGO Group founder Ole Kirk Kristiansen launched the first bricks called Automatic Binding Bricks in 1949.  In 1953, the name was changed to LEGO  or “Mursten” which is Danish for LEGO bricks.  The original bricks were hollow underneath, so they had limited clutch power unlike the bricks today.  LEGO's early years had color bricks available that were white, red, yellow, blue and green.  LEGO has definitely grown since!  Check out this video to see the company in its early years!
