LEGO Doctor Who

Character Building Doctor Who Tardis

LEGO Batman Superhero minifigures & Series 8

If the online buzz is correct here is some exciting LEGO minifigures that may be released in the near future! I really like the Scarecrow, Doctor Doom, Mr. Freeze, Thespian (one that looks like Shakespeare) & the Man-Bat. I like others as well but I have to consider budgeting matters. If anyone has more info on either feel free to post links or comments. I would really like to know how the Superheroes will be made available (which sets that they will be included in).

Dragon Ball Toys

 Staff Slashing Goku & Fast Kicking Krillin
Two of my favorite Action figures from my childhood. Many Dragon Ball toys and action figures have been produced over the years. There are others with amazing detail but there is something about the "cuteness" or the simplicity that really drew me to these. Krillin kicks one leg when the button on his back is pushed. Goku "slashes" his long staff when twisted at the waist. I lost the long staff at some point and Krillin has color discoloration on the back of his head.
For those seeking info about these figures I'm providing the following information: Bandai Fast Kicking Krillin (1995) and Bandai Staff Slashing Goku (1995). I have another Goku that is in its original package and here is more information from the package (might be different than the Krillin figure): Asst.#3801, Item#3802. FUNimation Productions, Inc., 1995 BIRD STUDIO/SHUEISHA, TOEI ANIMATION, Distributed by Bandai America Incorporated.

Sith Teddy

Fun build with the teddy bear from LEGO series 6 SleepyHead & Star Wars Tauntaun. I was inspired by someone else who created a mech piloted by the teddy bear. I had to try attaching pieces to the bear to see what worked. I was also attempting to create an unique column build. The pieces on the bear's arms don't fit as snug as I would have liked. Feel free to share interesting builds that you might have done using the bear.
