Amazon Discounts Super Heroes, TMNT Sets

76004 Spider-Cycle Chase

Amazon is discounting a few Super Heroes sets at 20% or better. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sets are also seeing a modest discount. And speaking of TMNT, sets based on the stupid movie are also available.

And finally, sets based on the movie. And boy does that movie look stupid. And you know it’s bad when the fifth Step Up movie is rated higher on Rotten Tomatoes than the TMNT movie. The toys look slightly less stupid but I will admit that the van set looks pretty good and will probably roll better than the Shellraiser. I’ve provided links to both Amazon and LEGO Shop@Home for these sets.

Toy Fair Report: Set Videos

In case you weren’t aware, FBTB has a YouTube channel. It’s where we stick our video assets. We don’t produce much and I keep threatening to do video reviews but never have the time to get around it. Or the nerve to put myself in front of a camera. Yesterday, I finished editing and uploading video footage I shot of at Toy Fair showing off some play features of some of the upcoming sets. They’re not too long, averaging about a minute and a half each, but you can see bells and whistles of the sets in motion.

Enjoy!

Toy Fair Report: LEGO Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

QO5C3999

A new year, a new crop of LEGO TMNT sets and they were awesome. Even the Michael Bay turtles looked kinda fun if you ignored everything you know and love about the ninja turtles. Before you click through, unfortunately we weren’t able to take any pictures of that line. I can say though that they translate well into LEGO form. They are using different molds for the characters than the ones from the movie. Splinter is re-imagined from the current cartoon. Shredder looks more or less the same. The sets look kind of fun, but like I said, you’ll have to let go of any history you may have of the franchise. Even then, you still have to contend with Michael Bay and we all know what he’s done with Transformers. Me personally, I don’t think I’d get any of the Bay turtles. Anyways, continue on if you wanna see what’s in store for the Nick cartoon license. I’ve added the set names, piece count, and price points for the Bay turtles at the end of the list. Enjoy!
