Ben 10 Lego

I don't watch Ben 10 so it took until my birthday for me to lay hands on one of these Ben 10 Lego sets that same out a few months ago. They have some interesting pieces such as the wings on this guy. They are built on the Bionicle design but not as well. The pieces are made in Mexico rather than Europe and they don't fit together as nicely. The set was small and a bit too obvious to assemble (without instructions, maximum 2 minutes assembly time). The pieces, as you can see from this close up, are hollow and feel different than other Lego and Bionicle.

Bionicle masterpiece

My Omi bought me this huge Bionicle vehicle. It took me days to build it correctly. It is going to join "Sharky" in the won't-take-apart category.

Lego suprises

More Lego birthday presents!!! Omi got me the huge Bionicle Axalara T9. I opened the second gift from Paul and it is one of the new Lego games, the best one! The one with the minotaur. I couldn't wait to set up the maze for it.

Dracula protective suit

We went to grandma's house this evening to see my cousin Michelle before she leaves town. I played with the horror movie set Lego there and built Dracula a robot suit to protect him from the sunlight.

Beginning the robot

Before my trip, the Mindstorms 2.0 robot Lego I ordered and paid for with my own savings arrived. I didn't open it until I got home. Here I am putting together a basic 'bot and getting ready to program it.
