Kermit the Car?

As the Muppet Movie approached last year, I was excited about what I thought for sure was going to be a glut of promotional tie-ins, toys and merchandise.  I've loved the Muppets forever and was stoked to get some fun new Muppet merch.

The stuff never came.  There were a few things here and there, but alas, not the bonanza of stuff I expected.

With so little to choose from, I grab anything when I see it, including this, the Disney Racer Kermit the Frog Car.

I've bought these before (see Steamboat Willie in my Playing with my cars post), and usually they are fun, with abstract nods to the character they represent.  In this case, it seems as though they took poor Kermits head and slapped some wheels on him.

That's not to say I don't dig it and won't give it it's proper place on my Muppet shelf, it's just a bit odd.

Sorry for another "show and tell" post, but it's summer time, the sun is out, soooo . . . . sorry, gotta run and play.

Frankenstein sure does like Whoppers

Grabbed this shot last week while playing tourist.  I'm a sucker for roadside attractions and kitsch, been a fan of this fellow in Niagara Falls for years.

Playing with my cars

Pulled out a bunch of my cars a bit this past weekend and loaded them into PicMonkey.  I miss Picnik on Flickr :-(

Power Attack Twin Blades Batman

Various figures from the new "Power Attack" Batman line have been showing up in the blogosphere, so I bit.  I know this is a line aimed towards the kiddies, but I'm digging the look of it (and the price point).

I'd like to see more villains in the line, right now there's only one, Killer Croc, and I'm kind "meh" on him.

I'll grab Battle Gauntlet Batman when I see him, the same figure you see above, but in black and that'll be enough "Power Attack" Batmen for me.

Anyone else keen on these?

Check these off my list

Shredder: Go ahead. Attack me if you will. When it is over, you will call me Master!
Rahzar: Ma... Mama.
Tokka: Mama?
Rahzar: [to Shredder] Mama!
[they hug Shredder]

Leonardo: Shredder, you gotta to listen to reason! You're gonna kill us all!
Super Shredder: Then so be it!

This movie is so campy and awesome, I'm glad to finally have these guys in my collection.
