Mirror mirror on the wall, who’s the wisest of them all 😎 Yoda of course! This is my Yoda from the Phantom Menace, at the Jedi Temple in his council chair:

He comes with a voice chip, I haven’t used it yet since he’s still in the box, but it obviously has some of his notable quotes:

The Palpatine figure looks cool too, would love to hear his quotes.

Merchandise Monday #53

As you know Boba Fett is one of my fave Star Wars characters. This is a posable Disney action figure. He can ‘armour up’ with extra pieces of equipment:

I plan on collecting most of the Lord of the Rings and Star Wars Vinyl Pops – they are so cute. Also, they are wonderful to display, because unlike most action figures, there’s little chance that these guys will fall over with their nugget-y proportions.

I’m keeping his packaging, but I am taking him out of the box. I think i’m going to leave him on my desk, as a sentry to ward off any bugs in my room – evil overlord of Dr Slater’s desk 😎 !

The other action figure of Legolas i got about 11 years ago; and he’s not in the box. It’s the Helms Deep version of his character. I’ll blog about it on a future Monday. What is your favorite Legolas quote or scene? Lets not all choose the killing of the Mumakil… 😎

Living Toys

Do you think it would be amazing or scary if our toys could come to life? Even if we have given them a certain personality; that might not be who they really are if they came to life. Here are examples of some living toys that we’ve come to love and fear:

1. Small Soldiers

The Gorgonites were the good toys in this story; i’d love to have a few of them alive in my room. However, the Commando Elite would wreak havoc in your house:

2. Toy Story

Hardly any bad toys here (except that Lotso bear guy and the Prospector). Sid’s toys are also a bit scary with how they’ve been mutated. But all of Andy’s toys are welcome to roam my room:

3. The Indian in the Cupboard

Little Bear is the kind of toy you want stepping out of that cupboard, but when your friends meddle with your stuff and bring Boone to life; things can get a bit chaotic:

4. Ted

Ok; so i’m pretty sure that you either love Ted or hate him. I think he could be a bad influence, but there were times when he showed potential for love and loyalty:

5. Chucky

Do i even have to say anything? Absolutely not wanting this thing to come to life ever!

He is king sized too! I must admit; Disney is coming out with some pretty cool Star Wars toys. I’m not disappointed in their quality at all (hopefully this same standard carries through in the 7th film):

Going to work in heavy traffic? This merchandise Monday is for everyone who wishes they had a Bumblebee to bypass the rush hour:

Yellow isn’t my favorite colour either, but being a Transformer alone makes Bumblebee badass. Not to mention he probably has some next-gen fuel intake which could be beneficial for the wallet.

Merchandise Monday #14

Winter is coming (for those of you in the Northern hemisphere). This merchandise Monday goes out to Jon Snow!

Jon Snow

Jon Snow

My brother bought me this officially licensed HBO action figure. I love the Starks; they’re my favorite house in Game of Thrones. If Jon Snow or Arya Stark dies; i will threaten to boycott the show (but i actually wont – i love it and it’s too addictive). The rest of the figures available in this series can be seen on the back of the box:

You cannot see it in the above images, but there is actually a ’17+’ age restriction on this action figure. With that in mind; here is an image of the base of the box:

Don’t worry; i will not remove him from the box 🙂

Would you ever be brave enough to go North of The Wall? Who is your favorite character?
