I had some shopping to do this morning, and I mostly got boring (but needed) stuff. But I still have to check the toy aisle when I’m in a store that has one, so I also came home with this little Lego set.

I love the Mighty Micros aesthetic… I imagine that the characters are really lucky little kids who get to dress up as their favorite superheros and play with all the cool toys.

If Lego’s Mighty Micros sets look like something you’d have fun with, check out Wal-Mart… mine had some (including this one) marked down to $7 from $9.99.

Reorganizing the shelves

2015-02-05-21.35.22I got a package of four figures from Dorkside Toys today that was either a late Christmas present (since it was paid for with Christmas money) or an early birthday gift (since my birthday is later this month.)

Of course, that forced me to rearrange some of my display shelves to find room for my new acquisitions.

My Dancing Groot bobble head decided he was more at home among actual plants, so he didn’t present any immediate organizational challenges.
