#963 of Year 4 Kree-O Battleship

Gah, I hate not having time to blog.  Anyways, it's March, and before it's over, I thought I'd do at least one post for Mechanical March and what better toy to do that than Kree-O!

#961 of Year 4 Lego 30101 Friends Skateboarder

It's Female/Friends February, and the month is more than halfway through.  Here's a polybag from way back, my first Friends polybag actually.

#961a of Year 4 Lego 850596 Heartlake City Playmat

February at Toy a Day has traditionally focused on females, and toys for the fairer gender.  This year it's just gonna focus on Lego Friends.

Lego Friends are a group of five girls/ladies (I'm not quite sure) - Mia, Emma, Andrea, Olivia and Stephanie who live in Heartlake City.  They do interesting stuff together and with their friends.  The population of Heartlake City seems to be over 90% female...

Today's post is just a playmat for the city.


The box is huge, and mine's a bit dented at the corners.  Oh well.

#960 of Year 4 Lego 6873 Superheroes Spider-Man's Doc Ock Ambush

I actually opened this a while ago, but thought it would be nice to complete the circle this month by coming back to Spiderman, which kick-started us off on our journey this month.

#959 of Year 4 Lego 10937 Superheroes Batman: Arkham Asylum Breakout

This isn't the first Batman Arkham Asylum to be rendered into an official Lego set, but it's probably one of the more iconic sets from the last couple of years.  The architecture of the building, despite being just a fascade is awesome, but I'm getting ahead of myself.

#958 of Year 4 Lego 6860 Superheroes The Batcave

This isn't the biggest Batman set of 2012, but it is the biggest one that was on normal retail (as opposed to being an exclusive set).

#957 of Year 4 Lego 6857 Superheroes The Dynamic Duo Funhouse Escape

It's rare that we get a Joker set, but this is exactly what this is - a set based around the Joker... and to a certain extent the Riddler and Harley Quinn as well.

#956 of Year 4 Lego 6864 Superheroes The Batmobile and the Two-Face Chase

Catwoman, Joker... and Two Face are probably three of the most recognised Batman villians, and the Batmobile is probably Batman's most iconic vehicle.  Put them together and... well, it's not an iconic set ,but it's good nevertheless.

#955 of Year 4 Lego 6863 Superheroes Batwing Battle Over Gotham City

There is nothing new under the sun, and Lego is quick to popularise the standard Batman vehicles, because apparently Batman sells.  So this time around, we have a Bat jet, or Batwing (named after Nightwing perhaps?)

#954 of Year 4 Lego 6862 Supeheroes Superman Vs Power Armor Lex

Superman is a rather well known character, and Lego was probably rearing to release their first Superman set.  Apparently this is the set.

#953 of Year 4 Lego 6858 Superheroes Catwoman Catcycle City Chase

Whoever named this set sure likes alliteration.  Anyways, I guess after the two polybags in the past two days, I mgiht as well go on to the DC side of Lego Superheroes.

#952 of Year 4 Lego 30161 Superheroes Batmobile

Another day, and I'm just continuing the Superheroes polybag thing.  BTW, thanks to Havoc/Nick in the UK for getting me these!

#951 of Year 4 Lego 30160 Superheroes Batman Jetski

I'm taking a quick break for a couple of days - doing this one toy a day gig isn't as easy as I thought it would be, so it's gonna be a small toy for today, a Batman polybag.

#950 of Year 4 Lego 6866 Superheroes Wolverine's Chopper Showdown

The Lego Marvel Superheroes-verse also includes a set that ties in to X-Men:Wolverine.  I wondered why did they have to make just this one set when there were so much goodness in the movie that could have been made into sets.

#949 of Year 4 Lego 6869 Superheroes Quinjet Aereal Battle

The battle of New York may be epic, having ramifications across the Marvel Cinematic Universe - and the boring subject of the last Iron Man movie and 'Tahiti'.  Lego decided to just reproduce the Quinjet battling Loki and the Chitauri sans the motherships... which seems a bit of a cop out.

#947 of Year 4 Lego 6867 Superheroes Loki's Cosmic Cube Escape

So, I guess we progress on towards the larger sets.  Today's it's Iron Man's turn to get the Toy a Day treatment!

#946 of Year 4 Lego 6865 Superheroes Captain America's Avenging Cycle

The previous three days post probably has shown what I'm doing as I go along these few days - building up the cast of the Avengers under the Christmas tree in my Winter Village.  Today's addition is the Cap himself.  No, not Captain Crunch, Captain America!

#944 of Year 4 Lego 30165 Hawkeye with Equipment

I guess I might as well continue with Hulk's buddies today.  And today it's the dude that Jeremy Renner plays on the big screen - Hawkeye!

#943 of Year 4 Lego 5000022 Superheroes Hulk

I guess since I was on the Lego Marvel Superheroes, I might as well head on to Spidey's friends.  Today's Superhero is the Hulk.

#942 of Year 4 Lego 76005 Superheroes Daily Bugle Showdown

It's gitd January, but I'll take a break over the weekend to post something that I opened last year while on a blogging break.  It's still Spiderman related though.  Lego came out with the Superheroes theme two years ago, and obviously Spidey was part of the Marvel section of it.


The daily bugle showdown features Spidey and Dr. Doom and a three-storey high Daily Bugle building.  The box shows that off to the fullest extent, and the action features of the built up set is shown on the back of the box.


There are five baggies in the box, and a few spare pieces.  There's a whole bunch of printed material, including three instruction booklets - count them 1, 2, 3; a decal sheet and a wordless minicomic.


Baggie number 1 builds Spidey and the grounf floor of the DB building.  The building is OK, but that lamp post is vintage noir chic.  Oh and there's also a trash container that doubles as a see-saw for launching Spidey.


Baggie number two builds the middle floor of the DB building.  There's a fire escape and a cobweb, but otherwise, it's pretty normal.


Baggie 3 builds the top floor or the DB building.  There's an exploding window and a few doodads on the roof including a trap door.


Baggie #4 and #5 builds Dr. Doom and his jet.


The jet is boxy and the design seems weird.  I though Dr. Doom was a rich ruler of someplace?  He could surely afford a better jet.


There's a few other figures in the set as well including JJ and Nova and those make the set playable.  Overall, the set is targetted for the ages stated on the box, and not so much an adult fan of Spidey or Lego in general.  It's still a nifty set for my Lego city though!  There are more photos of my Lego stuff on my Lego Facebook page if anyone's interested.
