A Toy That Will Haunt My Dreams

I recently visited a local auction house and came across this very odd toy. It was listed as “Circa 1950’s Alvin & The Chipmunks Wind-up Toy with Harmonica”. I had trouble believing this was an actual production toy, but I indeed found it online and on eBay. Although some look a bit better made than this which leads me to believe that someone replaced the covering on this toy. I regret not bidding on him. Oh well.

Big Bang Theory Lego!

Check out this awesome new set on its way from Lego!

Yes, it’s the Big Bang Theory. It includes the entire gang in Sheldon and Leonard’s apartment. There are many great accessories including chinese food, the Green Lantern lantern, a whiteboard, and other great things. On the wall they’ve even included something it took me some research to identify as a large fuse holder. The set will come out in August, 2015 and sell for about $60.00

What is the most expensive toy on Amazon?

I was looking for new toys on Amazon today and I thought I’d check and see what the most expensive toy listed was. Aside from some collectible items and some items (like coins) that aren’t toys, the most expensive item that came up seemed really odd. I thought it must be a typo, and, in fact, there were some other items listed that shouldn’t cost quite that much.

The most expensive one was this adorable flower selling for $46,341.90 (with free shipping). Click the image to see the actual listing.

There was no description and I’m not really sure what it does. It looks like a windup toy. It is worth $46,000? Probably not.

Actually, I lied. The most expensive toy item was, in fact, this playset.

It sells for $48,895.00 plus $4,600 shipping. This is probably the first item on the list that can be categorized as an actual toy and seems like the price is accurate.

Followed by the next two items:

Selling for $41,207.76.

For $37,986.74

I continued looking through my search and there were many outdoor items and such that were quite expensive and many items that were WAY overpriced like the ones above.

Full-Scale Lego X-Wing Fighter Visits Manhattan

This is an awesome world record! Lego has built a full-size Lego X-Wing Starfighter.

It’s made of 5.3 million legos. And it’s a model of a lego model. Got that?

Weighing 46,000 pounds, it took 32 people over 17,000 hours to build and it’s on display for the next few days in Times Square. After that it will be moving to California.

How big is it? It’s 11 feet high, 43 feet long, and has a wingspan of 44 feet.

It was built to promote the miniseries The Yoda Chronicles on The Cartoon Network, premiering May 29.
