A Return to Lego-ing

It’s been quite awhile since I’d bought or assembled any Lego sets. I’ve bought several “mini sets”–those ones in the plastic packets that tend to be in the novelty aisle for Easter baskets, Christmas stockings, Trick or treat goodies, etc or just in the checkout lanes.

But the urge finally hit strongly enough to actually do some assembly.

Firstly, this ice-bear mech. I’m absolutely a sucker for Lego mechs, and this one was quite fun to put together. Quick, simple, looks cool…I even bought a second one just for the heckuvit, to repeat the experience and have a second one with things. It’s small enough, and I don’t’ know the actual Legend of Chima story stuff enough to know if it makes sense story-wise. But I like it. I put this one together on part of a lunch-break at work, and am thinking I may shift more Lego-ing to work lunches.

This one hardly got a second thought, given it’s a mech and a medium set–not tiny, not huge and expensive.

I probably spent a bit over an hour assembling this one, not too long at all, but not terribly quick.

I much prefer the thing in this “mode,” with the “sword wings” folded down.

There’s a Batman mech in a $50 set that I’m not quite willing to spend that much on, though I’ve been eyeing the thing for a few weeks. I’ll probably get it eventually, but for now, the mech-building itch has been (temporarily) scratched for the first time in over a year.

New Toys on New Comic Day

Despite it being a New Comic Day, I’m more excited with a couple of toy purchases this week.

Valiant‘s weekly email noted that the announced-awhile-back-and-I’d-forgotten MiniMates pack of X-O Manowar and Bloodshot was now in Toys R Us stores…so I stopped by my local TRU and found it. And bought it.

While in TRU I also browsed the Lego stuff, and happened to notice a new Mech:

Since they’re often cheaper at and I was going to Target anyway, I ended up getting the Mech there, though it proved to be the same price as TRU.

I suppose I might be “back” into Legos again for a time. We’ll see, though…
