So anyway, Legos.
As chronicled earlier in this thread, Scotward sent me a "secret santa" gift in the form of a Lego set, unaware (or uncaring) that it might once again rekindle my long-dormant interest in tiny plastic bricks. Lego was probably the definitive toy of my formative years, and now I'm all interested again. Not to the point of just going out and buying tons of stuff, mind you. My personal funds are way inadequate for that.
But I did find out there was a privately owned Lego store in the greater Stockholm area, and so...
Spyrius was a Lego Space subtheme that I missed, as it happened just after I stopped wanting Legos as a kid. I always liked the looks of the black and red sets though, so I picked up the smaller robot.
As well as the "budget" sized UFO, which I think is really neat. Another reason I love the Spyrius theme is that in English-speaking markets they were pretty much passed off as being space communists. The Robot pilot is even named Major Kartofski or something similarly ridiculous.
I also picked up the small M-Tron speeder. Another good-looking subtheme from the early 90's.
After that, I went off to scour the toy stores at the local mall complex. This proved to be less fruitful, as most things I saw didn't appeal to me. But I did find a store that still had a single Pharaoh's Quest set on the shelf, from way back in 2011. Pharaoh's Quest appeals to me due to the Egyptian theme (always been a big Egyptian buff) and the fun-looking creatures in the set.
This one is just an adventurer, his equipment, and a big, awesome-looking scarab. But it all looks great, comes with great accessories... I love it. Now to try and find the mummy airplane attack set...
Finally, another vice. Collectible minifigures. I picked these up while the post-christmas sale was still going at my local toystore, they're a mix between wave 5 and wave 6. I got an extra Minotaur too, not pictured. I'm pretty happy with the figures I got! I love the historical ones!
