  • Smugglers Bounty Star Wars 40th Anniversary Box
    Photo-A-Day #4422

    I am a subscriber to the Star Wars Smuggler’s Bounty box from Funko and this month’s box was the 40th Anniversary box. I’ve read a bunch of reviews of this and people are really harsh about it. There were five items in the box. There was the usual patch and pin, a giant Funko piece, wristbands and a set of salt and pepper shakers. The thing that people were most complained about was that there was nothing for Princess Leia in the box. There easily could have been a Princess Leia patch or pin included. I personally missed seeing one of those pages that tells me what is coming next time. I like it because it talks about the items in the box. Having that not included bummed me out. Sure I would have loved to have a shirt instead of wristbands, that is a given. I always want T-Shirts. I would have loved a re-creation of the iconic poster for Star Wars: A New Hope made into a T-Shirt using Funko figures. Well, here is what is in the box, I liked it but it could have been better.

  • BrickFest Brickbot
    Photo-A-Day #4421

    At Philly Brickfest the exhibitors who signed up for the full VIP package received a swag bag of cool stuff that included the BrickBot that you see above. Each year they create a different Brickbot and this is the first one I’ve ever seen or received. They had 9 different colors and I got the lime green one. It is an interesting little guy and easy to create.

    I really had nothing much today for my daily video but at the same time I am trying to make sure I take a video every day.

  • Master Tidepool
    Photo-A-Day #4420

    Activision sent me two Skylanders Imaginators Figures for free to play with and review. Opinions are 100% my own.

    Master Tidepool is one of my favorite new Skylanders Senseis. This is a new female character who is of the Water Element and of the Battle Class Quickshot. She is covered in all sorts of things from the ocean. Her armor is a cross between seashells and barnacles. Her helmet has a nautilus shell on it, too. Also, her hair is seaweed and her skirt is like a scallop shell. She has fun powers, too. She shoots ink with her squid guns and then can launch one of them and it will embed itself into the ground and attach enemies. She can also summon a whale to attack bad guys, too.

    Blaster-Tron is a former villain that was trapped in a traptanium crystal in Trap Team. He looks like a 1950’s interpretation of a robot. He is of the Light Element and the Knight Battle Class. He’s got this wicked cool sword that shoots lasers. He can also shoot out a bubble that can encapsulate the enemy. He can also shoot the rockets off his back with an energy beam in between them to ensnare and trip up enemies.

    We are nearing the end of all of the releases of the Skylanders Imaginators. We are still waiting on Master Ro-Bow. Now I have to work on completing this game because it is one of the most fun Skylanders games I have played so far.
