LEGO DC Universe 4527 The Joker and 4528 Green Lantern Review with Reagan and Cuzin’ Wes

Well, Cuzin’ Wes came in from out of town for a family visit, and so, Reagan, Daddy, Mommy, and Baby Brother loaded up in the car and headed over to grandma’s house. It has been a while since we have seen Wes and his mom, so we were all excited for the visit. After Grandma fixed us an awesome breakfast of eggs, grits, sausage, bacon, biscuits, fruit salad, and orange juice, Wes announced that he had got some new toys while he was in for his visit. In fact, Wes purchased the LEGO DC Universe – Set 4527 The Joker and Set 4528 The Green Lantern from Grandma’s local Barnes and Noble bookstore.

We were so pumped! Reagan and I have been talking about picking up some super hero figures from LEGO, so this was a nice surprise to get an upclose view of the figures! Wes also noted that you can combine the sets 4527 and 4528 to create ULTRA VERSIONS of The Green Lantern and The Joker. We got another blog post with photos on the ULTRA BUILD coming up.

2012 Lego Ninjago NRG Jay – Set 9570 Review and Unboxing

Ninjago fans?  You bet we are! Reagan and Daddy shopped this week at and while we were checking out some of our favorite products, we decided to check out the Ninjago section and see if there were some new sets available.

To our great surprise there were 6 new sets that were on our buy list. One of these targetted pick ups was NRG Jay – Lego Ninjago set 9570. Having transformed into lightning energy, NRG Jay is ready to do battle at his fullest potential. The serpentine tribes better be wary of this bad boy ninja!

This new Ninjago minifig costs 12.99 online at Toys R Us, but is also available at Amazon and Ebay.


The 9570 set includes the following components:


(1) NRG Jay figurine with an electrifying blue lightning bolt pattern across his chest and back that gives a glowing effect through the use of an irradescent type paint. It’s about as close to glowing as we are going to get on this Ninjago figurine!


(1) Gold Spear
(1) Standard Spear
(1) Standard Ninjago Sword


NRG Jay’s crown is a serated silver blade with a spinner inspired by his relationship with lightning – it is a deep, translucent blue in color.


(1) Character card
(4) Battle cards

Adventure Time Grow Your Own Finn Figure

Reagan and Dad had the distinct pleasure of growing our very own Adventure Time Finn! A little over a month ago, as Reagan and I were shopping at our local Toys R Us, we came across a box of assorted Adventure Time toys and figures and noticed that one, lonely pack said – “Grow Your Own” Finn.

Adventure Time - Grow Your Own Finn CharacterOf course, instantly, Reagan and I looked at one another and said, “we are so getting this!” Reagan and I are HUGE Adventure Time fans and when we discovered that we could chunk a small Finn into a bowl of water and watch him grow, well, we just had to do it. We took all of our YouTube subscribers along for the journey. You can watch the entire series below:

Reagan and I discover the Grow Your Own Figure at Toys R Us:

Reagan and I prepare to place Finn into the water. Check out the scale of Finn, when we start at Day 1

After a couple days, Finn has started to stretch in his growth and as a result, some of his color started to come off.

Growth explosion! Check him out.

Update on Finn! Now in GIANT status.

Double Jumbo!

It’s time to reverse the GROWTH and now it’s time to SHRINK Finn back!


Our adventure is still going on. Make sure you check back on this post in the weeks ahead to see if Finn returns to his starting size.

The Toy Review:

At first glance, you would probably pass this toy in the store because you may have preconceived notions about water toys, especially those that fall into the “grow” category. I must admit that I didn’t think that this toy would grow to anything substantial after seeing the growth results after 24 hours. It wasn’t for a couple of days until the growth explosion began. And once it started, there was no turning back. Finn grew to a substantial size, large enough that Reagan could detect the increase, which was loads of fun during our video observations.

Does the toy do anything other than grow?

Well, no. The toy doesn’t do anything other than grow, but it’s the growth that yields the fun. This is a great little toy novelty that yielded lots of laughter and amazement, at least in our household.


Reagan and I didn’t have too many complaints about this toy other than the fact that his paint peels pretty bad during the first growth spurt, but then seems to even out. On a positive note, Finn’s face (paint) never cracked, which was a good thing. The paint ripping/tearing occurred along his legs. One other thing to note is the fact that when you decide to shrink Finn back, he is unable to resume his seated position. We are uncertain that if this occurs in all of these toys, but Finn’s bottom never seemed to flatten back out and as a result, Finn can’t sit up anymore – he lays on his side. That’s a bummer.

This toy is a novelty. Buy it for what it is – a cute character from the Adventure Time cartoon series on Cartoon Network that grows when you place him in water. It’s the experience that is fun.

Reagan and I give this toy two thumbs up! Go for it. Have some fun.
