Fellow Lego Dad, Brook H and I skipped out on a family date at Chuck E Cheese, leaving the moms to handle Ski ball and token trading. We had a mission to obtain the rare and exclusive LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Rocket Raccoon polybag (5002145). It took a $30 purchase to land Rocket in my bag… I chose the Jedi” Interceptor set 75038 and the Batwing Poly Bag to keep my purchase as close to the $30 mark as possible. I sort of have a Poly bag habit where I end up with at least two; but not it in this case… I can’t bring myself to opening Rocket. I do love the idea of a baby Groot!!
Aside from Legos…. I love cars: big cars, small cars, gas, electric, pedal; you name it. I have lego Set 60053 on my desk and am rolling it around between bursts of typing this entry. E-Block as a bunch of Lego Racers from 2008. They are STILL fun, easy builds for small hands, and make spectacular crashes!! I didn’t realize it at the time but the only thing missing back then was a car matching, race-clad mini-figure.
That stuff’s history! The new Lego Speed Champions feature minifig scale rides WITH a minifigure driver/mechanic, etc. Best of all the cars are boasting TOP racing brands like Porsche, Porsche, and Porsche…. with some lesser known brands like Ferrari and McLaren.
Ahhh Porsche: There is no substitute, even in Lego form. I’m submitting Hurley Haywood minifigure to Lego Ideas (R).
I just RSVP’d to the Orlando, Downtown Disney Lego Store Annual VIP Shopping event!
