Well, if you've been following this blog everyday, congratulations. You've made it to the end of the blog... well, at least for this year. I'm ending the year with the third of the trio of Lego Mars Mission sets, and after the two Impulse sets of the past two days, I thought I'd actually go open a proper big set today.

I've already shown most of Havoc's customs. So, I got my Havoc-made Gorpo yesterday. I also had the priviledge of playing with the rest of the other customs including Orko's other siblings:
It's the penultimate day of 2010, and I'm a little bit sad that Toy a Day will be coming to an end tomorrow... well, at least for this year. What will next year bring? Well, I think I have more or less decided, and I'll write about it next year. But back to today, I'm opening another Mars Mission Impulse set, and I think this is from the first wave of Impulse sets.

Merry Christmas everyone. While I'm opening the wrappings of Christmas presents (if it's a toy, I can't open anything this year, aaaargh!) I thought I'll just show you guys this awesome Exoforce set that I opened today (no, I didn't get this for Christmas this year). I hope you all had a great toy haul for Christmas!

It's the day before Christmas! Many thanks and Merry Christmas to the contributors here - Wes Grogan, Lemonjuice McGee, 3B and Darkspectre! Here's me wishing you all lots of toys tomorrrow... well, except Lemonjuice, who's already got all the toys that he needs... for free!
It's Christmas Eve. This is the time when nice boys and girls all over the world get toys... supposedly. These days I think parents just throw toys at their kids just to keep them busy for the holidays. But that's a whole different topic altogether.

It's the penultimate day of the advent calendar. The shoutout today goes to Havoc whose support at the beginning of the year gave me the courage to start doing a toy a day. Have a Merry Christmas! I hope you have a great time with the boys and with Andy! Oh and Kat!
There's no theme this month, I'm just opening Lego with a break every so often for MotUC, and today is another one of those "break" days as I open Battle Cat. Now, BC was issued in January, but I didn't get to get him because he sold out while I was putting in my discount code. I was mightly upset back then, but thankfully there was a rerelease on Cyber Monday. I did put in my code for a $8 discount so I'm happy.

More shoutouts today, this time to the newly married Ewan, and to Daryl - thanks for the support and 圣诞快乐. I hope the lights on Orchard this year is grand! And also to the newly married pH6, Hyvää Joulua!
Next year will be my 30th anniversary of my Lego collecting habit. Yes, that's 30 years of getting at least a handful of Lego sets a year. I have almost a thousand lego sets and that's why they have their own room. My first set was a Legoland Police van, and I'm already planning for the 30th anniversary countdown! Hence the reason why I'm on a Lego-opening binge this month!

Since I'm taking the time to do shout-outs, I'd like to wish all my pinoy readers, especially Pichon who has been supporting this blog since it started, Maligayang Pasko. May your pata be crispy and your lumpia crunchy! (or is that the other way around?)
Another day, another Lego set. I'm in the home stretch for this year and this is the last 10 toys I'd be opening this year. Next year, hopefully, I'll be opening more than 365 toys in total, or maybe not, but I'm jumping ahead of myself here!

I'm just wondering if there are any other toy advent calendars out there besides Lego... does Mega Bloks make one? Does Playmobile? Maybe Spy Monkey Creations or Onell Designs should look into making one of these for next year...
These are some of the things I wish I got this year. Sadly, due to budget constraints (yes, MotUC takes up way too much of my toy budget), I had to made do with less of these. Well, the year isn't over yet, so who knows? Maybe I'll get some of these for Christmas, but I don't have high hopes.

I finally got my new Action Figure Displays! The existing ones were getting well used and I thought some fresh ones will shake things up a bit. Besides, AFD recently announced their new Christmas-themed display which I know I definitely have to get. So I got them way back when and thanks to their speedy and professional service, I have them now in my hands.
Another day, another window on the calendar. Lemme just take this space to shout out to Mr. Emilio Pigafetta, who's a huge fan of Lego minifigs in particular and Lego in general. He's also a much better photographer than me! And he got in contact with me because he saw my online presence. Heh!
I can't believe I'm such a glutton for punishment, as I've basically committed myself to doing three blog posts a day. There's these toy openings once a day, then there's the advent calendar, and an optional Top 10 list. OK, so it's at least two a day, but maybe three and it's sort of getting a bit tedious. Well, maybe. But then I have all of my loyal readers (all 5 of you?) to think about, so...

This is list number 5 for those who are counting. This year, saw the relaunch of a number of lines including Transformers Classics (or whatever it has been renamed) and Star Wars vintage. Movie-wise, we saw the relaunch of Tron toys. News-wise, we also received heads-up on Voltron and Thundercats. It would have been nice if they had launched those this year, but since they haven't, perhaps they will do so next year... Anyways, here's a list of toylines I wish they'd have made this year.
It's the final week of the advent calendar. Yes, there's 7 more of these to go, and eight days before Christmas. So let's go rip into this!
This has more or less turned out to be a Lego month after all. Except that it's not officially a Lego month. I do have Battle Cat and the reissued Grayskull to open, not to mention the second Weapons Pak and a second Grizzlor. But that's neither here nor now. Today I'm opening the Knight's Kingdom set that's related to Mistlands Tower, and it's this Rogue Knight Battleship.

Another day, another window to open. I'm still at a loss of witty things to write about, so let's just move on to the main event.
