Here's a dragon thats a little harder to find. The Fireworm Queen is that dragon that does the fire thing, and the queen thing. She has light-up effects and some tongue lashing too. I couldn't find it around my land and had to order on Ebay, which was annoying because the one I got smelled of smoke and stinky perfume. If you are going to scalp people, please do so cleanly!!!

It looks like Mega Bloks has taken over the Spongebob Squarepants world from Lego with a solid start, offering many sets, and of course the all important Mystery Blind Packs!
There are eight figures to collect; Karatay Spongebob, Strangler Fish, Cowboy Patrick, Jail Fish,
Caveman Squidward, Nerd Spongebob, Surfer Fish, and A Mystery Mystery figure seen below if you can find him. Codes that I found provided...
From the first 8, It looks like a nice assortment, that could set the stage for many Series of new Packs. Lego never produced to many Spongebob sets, so maybe we will see a larger world from Mega Bloks.
Cowboy Patrick is dripping with out of the water attitude.
The Strangler in the first Series is awesome!!!
Hey, Its a Brick Wave!
So totally keep an eye out for these awesome sets, you Spongebob fan maniacs!

I finally found some time to look at these super cool Kre-O GI Joes Collection 3 packs, that I found in full a few months back. It was pretty killer, as all 12 packs, and only those 12, were on the shelf for the taking. Given how hard it is to find these in my area, I snagged them all!
Now its pretty much established that Kreon figures suck pretty bad in the function category. They fall apart, hard to stand, hands suck, heads sometimes look funny, blah blah... I am just glad that G.I. Joe a pretty obscure license these days, gets such a generous treatment, making it to a full collection 3.
Not only do we get classic characters, but some really obscure characters like Atomic Man. Each figure also usually has some pretty specific weapons, and usually more pieces than a Lego Minifigure would have. Both the Cobra Jet Trooper and Scrap-Iron come with many good build pieces.
I also like these blocks, as the size is so small, I can build a huge GI Joe collection with little storage space. Of course that giant looking Terrordrome might change all that.
So in short, I will take as many of these as I can get and play hard!
Oh, the codes if you are looking for just one...

Another Toothless? Jeez he might make a run at the number of Batman that I have collected over the years. This one is a pretty good one though, overall balanced figure with good solid light-up feature. Good wing articulation too. Hit this one up, if you haven't picked any of em up yet.

I did not think I would be lucky enough to find these on the toy shelves after the elusiveness of Series 2. Even Series 1 is still plentiful on shelves. Series 3 is around if you look, 8 figures to collect, including a great crossover on Breaking Bad's Walter White (the one I couldn't find of course). Some good monsters in this wave, with a couple punks too. Thanks Eric at Toyriffic for the photo help in review. Now back to searching for figure 40.

The Micro Villages have pretty much run their course, but i still had a Poet Smurf set to share. This is another one of those new hats to Malibu Stacey deals, where the highlight of the set is a tiny row boat, and some additional river pieces for my large Smurf Village collection. Poet looks pretty funny, with his mouth agape and quill and paper.

Dragons 2 Meatlug is a solid looking figure, but the action feature needs more testing. Its pretty tricky to get all four spikes to blast at the same time. With that said, she looks really close to Meatlug this time (vs. forest green Berk version). Hopefully an updated Fishlegs will appear to ride her.

So then there is these guys, the Fang Gang Mixels. Don't look too close or you will see some ugly racial stereotypes in there that is surprising that Lego went there. I think I will stop saying stuff now.
