Robot NINE by Rumble Monsters

One of my favorite collectible toys (Robot NINE) is produced by a Japanese company called "Rumble Monsters." Not only are these well made, well painted and incredibly limited, but they combine a classic vintage Robot-look with the touches of the modern Japanese vinyl kaiju world. Each Robot NINE figure costs about 6,800 yen (approx $80). They feature 5 to 7 points of articulation.   

Robot NINE "Delta 01" just released today (December 24). They won't last long, they never do! Most figures are extremly limited. While production numbers aren't officially released, I can't imagine them being more that 100-ish. Perhaps far less!

Avengers Pop! Vinyl by Funko

Funko continues to amaze with their combination of "cute" and "fun" and "manly" (OK, that's not the right way to say it, but you get the point...) Funko announced they will be releasing "Avengers" plush and vinyl figures.  They will be available on March 15, 2012. Pop! Vinyl figures include Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, and Nick Fury.  Plush figures series 1 include: Captain America, Thor and Iron Man.

Legos for Girls

 The LEGO Group, the world's leading construction toy brand, today announced LEGO® Friends, a new play theme that tailors the iconic LEGO construction experience especially to girls ages five and up. LEGO Friends delivers on a girl's desire for realistic role-play, creativity, and a highly-detailed, character-based world with the core values of LEGO building.

 "We felt it was time to test assumptions that girls aren't interested in building and to breathe fresh air into a toy category filled mostly with pre-fabricated play experiences for girls," said Jorgen Vig Knudstorp, CEO, LEGO Group. "We focused on creating a play experience centered on the joy of creation, while heeding the way girls naturally build and play. We are incredibly proud of the solution we deliver with LEGO Friends, and are resolved to build this platform for years to come."

LEGO Friends is the first 100 percent LEGO building experience fully optimized to girls' tastes and interests. Thousands of girls and their mothers worldwide participated in intensive research that validated the desire for more beauty, realistic details, accessories and interior building and role play opportunities in a LEGO offering.

Ninja of the Month 2012

Will you be subscribing to the Ninja of the Month Club? I've been a member for the previous 2 years and have LOVED receiving a surprise ninja each month. Check out the details here:

Ebay Item of the Day

With the recent announcement that Lego will be releasing Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit construction sets, I thought it would be appropriate to take a trip down memory lane and highlight the LOTR Playmates Intelli-blox. Each set was well made and created great playability for LOTR fans. The sets are still reasonably priced but grow harder to find each year. I don't think very many of these were made and were probably short-printed after poor sales caused the line to be canceled. Five sets were made: "Buckleberry Ferry Escape" , "The Mines of Moria" , "Battle at Weathertop" , "Isengard Caverns" , "The Prancing Pony"

Ebay Item of the Day

This is a very interesting collectible from a few year's ago. Released exclusively at Star Wars Celebration Japan each "egg" contains 2 bottle caps that also double as pins. Check it out! 

Muppets x Star Wars x Disney

I love Muppets... I love Star Wars... I love (wish I could afford to go to) Disney World...

Star Wars Muppets action figures have arrived at Walt Disney World parks.
The sets consist of:
- Kermit as Luke and Miss Piggy as Leia
- Fozzie as Chewbacca and Link Hogthrob as Han
- Beaker as C-3PO and Dr. Bunsen Honeydew as R2-D2 (my favorite of the figures!!)
- Sam the Eagle as Obi-Wan and Gonzo as Darth Vader (bonus figure of Camilla the Chicken as a Stormtrooper)

Each set retails for $19.95 and appear to be very well made. And while I'm thinking about it... go see the new Muppet Movie again! Hilarious!
