The 2010 Castle Advent Calendar Review — Day 24

December 24, 2010

Day 24

Its Christmas Eve and the feast was a success! The Royal Wizard Brick-o, the Great Magic Master himself, is performing a magic show as a Christmas treat right before Santa (aka the King) arrives with a bag of presents for everyone. 😀

Collectible Minifigures now at Toys R Us

May 21, 2010

First Set of Figs 1

The rumors of Collectible Minifigures showing up at Toys R Us are true. I just went to my local TRU and I found several different figures. Unfortunately someone had gotten a whole bunch before I did and certain figures were already gone. 😦

But I can’t complain too much, I did get 9 different figures. 🙂

I know everyone has their favorites, but I actually like all of them. They all have their uses. New faces, hair, and elements.

Some interesting things to note is that the diver’s flippers are a harder plastic and aren’t connected to each other, the Forestman’s feather is also individual, the Wrestler’s cape isn’t in a cardboard case so it was a little tricky to tell what he was.

You can feel the figures in the bag, it is a little tricky but it can be done. I know there are barcodes, but what’s the fun in that? 😉

I even made a quick table scrap model with one of the figures

Not only were the new Collectible Minifigures at Toys R Us, but they also had several new City, Power Miners, World Racers, Castle, and even Disney’s Cars Duplo.

I picked up the new Wizard set.

I have to say my favorite part is the printed tile. It even has an awesome quote — “You are far more powerful than you would ever imagine . . .”

Definitely a must have for any Castle fan out there.

So, if you are hankering for a new set, check out your local Toys R Us and see what you find. 🙂
