Greetings from Comic-Con 2012!

July 15, 2012

Jam packed days at Comic Con and Legoland. In GEEK heaven! I probably have a couple dozen posts I want to do, but I’m in the midst of too much awesomeness to stop and write about it!

Stay tuned though! I will start posting tons right after Con (assuming I’m not completely passed out on the couch from over geeking out). I’ll be doing posts on new Lego sets and minifigs, how inept Sony is with handling Human Beings, previews for new Nintendo games/products, and a WORLD EXCLUSIVE about something I got straight from the mouth of Mario.

Lego Lord of the Rings Now Available!

May 16, 2012

They are finally here (and by finally I mean a half a month early. My wallet is not prepared)! The first 7 sets in the Lego Lord of the Rings line are now available on Lego.com (and at Target and, if you are silly enough to pay mark up prices, at Toy’s R Us)! I put them in my cart for fun and they total at a wonderfully whopping $400. I have no idea how I will come by that kinda cash, let alone survive the following geek out of playing with a little Lego version of Legolas… Anyways, here are links to the sets on Lego’s site.

  • 9469 Gandalf Arrives: 83 pieces and $13. Includes Gandalf (exclusive to the set), Frodo Baggins (in exclusive clothes), and one of the new, special, posable horsies.
  • 9470 Shelob Attacks: 227 pieces and $20. Includes Frodo, Samwise Gamgee (exclusive to the set), the One Ring, and Gollum (exclusive to the set).
  • 9471 Uruk-hai Army: 257 pieces and $30. Includes Eomer (exclusive to the set), Rohirrim archer (exclusive to the set), four Uruk-hai, and a new horse.
  • 9476 The Orc Forge: 363 and $40. This set is a Target/Lego exclusive and includes Lurtz (exclusive to this set), two Mordor orcs, and a Uruk-hai.
  • 9472 Attack on Weathertop: 430 pieces and $60. Includes Aragorn, Frodo, Meriadoc Brandybuck (exclusive to this set), two Ringwraiths (exclusive to this set), the One Ring, and one of the new horses in black.
  • 9473 The Mines of Moria: 776 pieces and $80. Includes Legolas (exclusive to this set), Gimli, Boromir (exclusive to this set), Peregrin Took (exclusive to this set), two Mordor orcs, and a cave troll (exclusive to this set).
  • 9474 The Battle of Helm’s Deep: 1,368 pieces and $130. Includes Aragorn, Gimli, Haldir (exclusive to this set), King Théoden (exclusive to this set), and four Uruk-hai.

Also, if you plan on buying any of these before the end of the month, Lego will include the above Frodo poster. AND, if your total is over $50, you will also enjoy the exclusive wonder of this Hulk minifigure!

What are you waiting for? A birthday or holiday or something? Go breakout your piggy banks and shop till you drop!
