Movie Trailer.

I will always have love for the Guardians of the Galaxy. The first movie was my first time doing a Marvel Press interview. I really felt a connection with director James Gunn. His love for his vision of this story is so evident in what he does. In this second movie he has continued to make the universe of the Guardians of the Galaxy more rich and exciting. We get some great emotional moments in the movie that as a fan I can completely connect with. Taking such care to make the music become interwoven into the story is something that few people can do. James Gunn does it masterfully.

Super Mario Maker 3DS and Guardians Vol. 2 LEGO Sets

It was a day of play around here. the kids and I got together and built a bunch of Modibots and played with those. We were going to try and do some stop motion but it is hard to do that with a kid who never stops and who is always in motion. I also couldn’t find a really good program to help with the stop motion. I tried the Stikbot studio but it still is not the best option.

This morning I popped into Target and there I saw two Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 LEGO sets. I had to pick them up. I didn’t grab all of them when the first movie came out and I am kicking myself now. I noticed that they are certainly going to capitalize on the Baby Groot character because he is in both of the sets. I am looking forward to opening these sets and building. Maybe we will do it on Built from Brick and maybe I will do my own build. I do not know.

Today I also backed a great Kickstarter from the people who brought us Modarri. The new one is called Enduro an the vehicles look amazing. You can back the kickstarter at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/thoughtfulltoys/enduro-toy-cars-built-for-tough-drivers

Also, the fine folks from 360 PR sent me a copy of Super Mario Maker 3DS totally out of the blue. what a great surprise! the kids are loving making courses of their own.
