LEGO G.I. JOE? Not Even Close

Hasbro Stick To Toys

Oh Hasbro, this is your second try with a LEGO-Like toy. First there was KRE-O and while that was okay for a few Transformers figures it was not as good as LEGO. Now there is this other type of LEGO-Like toy and it is even worse. I got these at Big Lots because they had Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes. I tried building the sets last night and they were terrible. One of the wheel on the motorcycle broke as I attempted to put it into place. It is as if no one even tested these toys to see if they fit together right. Terrible. I was very disappointed in them. Even the little LEGO like figures of Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow could not redeem these.

Building the LEGO Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition

I used my Christmas money to buy myself the LEGO Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition set. I’ve been waiting for some time to take care of building it, but I have had a lot to do lately. I’ve wanted to make as many videos as I can when I have the time, really working on it. Well, I really wanted to build this so I combined the two things together. I built it on a livestream. Actually, I built for 2 1/2 hours on a livestream and then Allison texted me to get dinner made. I cut the stream short at the second to last bag. After dinner I went back to working on the build and completed it.

While the build is a great one there are some drawbacks. The knees do not bend and the feet are loose. The whole thing leans forward and may topple. I’m going to go and put that somewhere nice and solid so that it doesn’t go and fall, because that is going to be a pain in the neck to build again.
