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.

I’m not sure little “Nebula” knows what a cassette tape is, but there’s no reason to let “Star-Lord” hang onto it.

And away she goes in her vaguely generic star ship ride-on…

Little “Star-Lord” doesn’t quite get cassette tapes either, but he’s not going to let “Nebula” take it from him. He hops into his Milano ride-on and gives chase

“Nebula” spends a little too much time gloating, so “Star-Lord” catches up…

And now he has all the 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.

Mr. Met

I have dozens of collectible Pop! vinyl figures… they are well on their way to becoming the Beanie Babies of this decade. Funko has made figures for just about every license you  could imagine… and quite a few that you probably wouldn’t.

Until today, I did not have any of the baseball ones. Thanks to my friend Greg, I’m able to cross Mr. Met off of my wishlist.
