Tears of Batman / Disco Batman Online Bonus Polybag

 My son's birthday is coming up and while he's not quite ready for regular Lego's, he loves superheroes so I went online to pick up the larger Duplo Spider-man set.  Of course while shopping I had to pick up a few goodies for dad and I also wanted to hit that $75 threshhold so I could get this.  It's been awhile since Lego has offered a bonus that I wanted.

I haven't gotten to see the Movie yet, but I've only heard good things.  However I've found the minifigure series to be awesome even if some of the figures are ridiculous.  These two are just as ridiculous and just as cool.  Have a look.
 The gold cape is super sweet and shiny.

 Sorry for the blurry photo, just to show I ended up with a couple extra pieces.

Minifigure Spotlight - Lego Minifigure Disney Malificent

The Disney Minifigure set offers a great selection of minifigures throughout the Disney universe.  One of my favorites was Malificent.  With the new Disney Castle there is hope there might be a whole Disney line eventually, but I'm sure there will be a series 2 for these minifigures.

Malificent should be fairly easy to find since it's the only minifigure with a wedge base and the horns and staff are easy to find.  This minifigure falls in to the uncommon or 3 per box catagory.  I do love the way the cape looks and the overall whole feel of the minifigure is pretty complete.

Nothing like a thrift store score!!

Earlier this week I wasn't feeling so good so I took the day off and slept.  About mid-day I was feeling better and decided to go out and pick something up for lunch.  While out I just had this feeling I should stop into my local Value Village and ended up scoring 3 huge bags of random Legos!

Well they were mostly Legos.  In lots like this there are always a few odds and ends throw in.  If you look close you might also see the Shell logo on pieces.  Plus I could see a nice assortment of larger base pieces.  

 After looking through the bags I decided that there were at least two different Shell gas station sets represented, but incomplete.  But I noticed a lot of the blocks looked old.  I mean really old. They were worn and dirty, very well played with, but the lettering looked different.

And then I found this mixed in with the more modern bricks.

This piece helped me determine that I have a large portion of the 1958 Lego Esso Service Station set.

That's pretty incredible.  Mixed in with the modern bricks both Lego, MegaBlok, and others was a real classic.  In the bag there were also a mix of old windows and a bunch of old tires from the 1960's.  I'm glad I had a feeling.
