End of the Year Toy Review Previews

I picked up Andrew after school today and we headed over to my parents house. He now enjoys climbing ladders as you can see. I also had no fear at 5 years old. But back to the reason I was at my parent’s house in the first place. I was going there to help out with their new Comcast X1 Xfinity boxes and router and more. I set up a couple of their TVs and also the Router. The downstairs TV took some doing because it was just old enough that it doesn’t have a dedicated HDMI plug. It did have a DVI plug and so yesterday I went and got a DVI to HDMI adapter and thought I was all set but was wrong. The DVI to HDMI plug only does video and not audio. Getting Audio and video was through some old AV plugs and the picture was not good. So I saw the optical audio plugs and thought that a wire for that would work. Unfortunately, both the DVR and TV had outputs. Eventually I got HD video and sound by playing around with the plugs and trial and error. That is usually how I fix things.

Tonight I went to my buddy Brian’s house to record SteamDads. We tried an experiment and it did not work. So we did a couple of other things instead. They ended up working out pretty cool but our video is going to be an interesting one and we are staying away from chemicals for a while.

I made today’s video late at night before bed. I’ve got a ton of toy reviews to finish up before Christmas. I’m just getting many thing sent to me, which is not a bad thing. However, I’ve gotten a bit behind. All the toys in the video will need reviews by the end of next week. That way people have enough time to go and buy the ones that they like the most.

I’m also doing a giveaway of the Gremlins Team Pack. Here is how to enter.

New LEGO Dimensions Fun Packs
Photo-A-Day #4238

A couple of days ago I got a notification that a LEGO Dimensions Fun Pack was going to be available for me to pick up at Best Buy. I guess that when I ordered previous LEGO Dimensions packs I pre-ordered the E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial Fun Pack. I had forgotten all about that. So, I went over to Best Buy today and picked that up as well as the Sonic the Hedgehog Level Pack. I had another gift card so I took care of those purchases. I learned yesterday that I will be getting the Fantastic Beasts Story Pack and the E.T. Fun Pack. Yes, I’ll be getting two of that same pack. I’ll find someone who wants that or maybe do a giveaway. I may also be getting the Gremlins Team Pack to review, but we’ll see on that one.

During my errands I also went to Toys R Us and they were doing a buy one get one for 40% off. I also had a $5 off voucher so I picked up the Tina Goldstien character from Fantastic Beasts and the Marcline the Vampire Queen character from Adventure time. I have no other Adventure time sets and will wait for them because I don’t watch the show. However I’ll get them at some point. Here is my reveal video and when I receive the other sets I’ll do actual gameplay videos.

Because today was the big launch day for 6 new wave 7 sets. What follows is a press release about the sets as well as some screen shots and the Sonic the Hedgehog trailer. Continue reading All new LEGO Dimensions Wave 7 Packs are Out!!!
