I’ve finally assembled all of the Avengers. Well, assembled maybe a strong word as these sets are mostly still in the boxes. I found all of the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Avengers: Endgame sets and have started building them. I had been waiting for the sets to appear in the LEGO store so I could purchase them there and maybe get a special set of 4 minifigs that were Avengers themed. However, the sets weren’t available at that time and there weren’t any other sets that I wanted, so I missed out on that special set of figures. Now people are selling them on eBay for $70. It is crazy.

So I found the sets at Target and bought the Avengers: Endgame set, there are 5 of them. I built the smallest set tonight. That is the Captain America: Outriders Attack. It is a motorcycle with Captain America and three of the outrider attackers from Infinity War. We may be seeing them again in Endgame. That is, if the sets have any indication as to what will happen. Brian and I built the Avengers Compound Battle set and there was something inside that seemed a bit like a spoiler. I mention it in our Livestream but will leave it alone until after I see the movie.

This week I plan to build some more of the sets. I was doing a search for the four pack of figures and I see that there is a mini set of Avengers Tower with a special Iron Man figure. It is being sold everywhere on eBay for about $50. So I look to see if it is on the LEGO Shop and there it is as a free gift with purchase of $75. So I haven’t opened my Avengers Compound Battle set yet and so I can return it to Target. I placed my order on the Shop LEGO site and got that new little set. I am thinking I may also return the Ultimate Quinjet and do the same thing with that and get a second Avengers Tower set. That I can sell on eBay.

Disneynature "Penguins"
Disneynature’s all-new feature film “Penguins” is a coming-of-age story about an Adélie penguin named Steve who joins millions of fellow males in the icy Antarctic spring on a quest to build a suitable nest, find a life partner and start a family. None of it comes easily for him, especially considering he’s targeted by everything from killer whales to leopard seals, who unapologetically threaten his happily ever after. From the filmmaking team behind “Bears” and “Chimpanzee,” Disneynature’s “Penguins” opens in theaters nationwide in time for Earth Day 2019.

If you head to the movies this weekend and choose to see Disneynature’s PENGUINS then you can help make donations to the Wildlife Conservation Network (WCN) to help protect penguins across the southern hemisphere. The movie looks adorable and having it narrated by Ed Helms makes it even better. I’ve been lucky enough to view a bunch of Disneynature movies back when I was visiting Disney on press trips and they have always been beautifully shot and interesting to see. This one should be excellent as well. Take a look at this 60 second preview.
