I used to love Lego when I was a kid, and the small bricks from Denmark still keep fascinating me.
Summer 2012 will probably see the release of one of the coolest Lego incarnations, namely the classic Lord of the Rings trilogy in Lego format!!!
How friggin’ cool is that?

A friend recently got married in Spain and brought me this cute little robot from Spain. Being a robot fan needless to say I think it looks pretty cool.
Even as a kid I already loved robots, but in the past it was just weird buying a toy robot if you’re an adult. Fortunately things have changed and toys are being made specifically for the adult collector since a few years. Which explains the warning sticker on the package that it’s not a toy but a collectible for the adult collector

The coolest toyline in the Transformers universe has to be the Masterpiece versions. Starting with Optimus Prime as the first Masterpiece several have followed and coming September MP-10 will be introduced.
The only flaw in this series is the repetitive nature of the chosen Transformers and Takara has done it again for coming September’s release as Optimus Prime will get another re-re-release.
True, looking at the photos the new Optimus Masterpiece looks awesome but there are so many Transformer I’d like to see as well in the Masterpiece line which we haven’t seen yet.
For Optimus Prime we’ve already had the original version (MP-01), a white repaint, a black repaint and a trailer included version. So, even though it’s a new mold, this will be the 5th Optimus Prime based Masterpiece. Milking out? Hell yeah! Cool toy? Sadly, Yes!

I remember a time when McFarlane Toys used to bring out a very cool and awesome toy line every month. It started with the figures based on the Spawn comics but soon other sources also generated cool toys like movies, music and best of all the various horror series inspired by the likes of Giger and Clive Barker for example.
But the last couple of years McFarlane toys seems to be releasing crap after crap with figures based on stupid movies like HALO with each figures looking exactly the same exact for the color scheme of the space suits, generic military figures and sports figures no one outside the US cares about.
What happened to the creativity that lead to fantastic series like the Tortured Souls or the cool re-imagining of classic Fairy Tales or the Dragon series?
I wonder if the current line of crap figures actually sell more than the cool stuff it used to bring out.
Ah, the good old days of looking forward to the next McFarlane toys. Guess I should be glad I don’t have to spend money on toys anymore.
