A Great Place to Visit - Lasting Toys!

If you like LEGOs and are anywhere in the vicinty of Toronto, Canada there's a place you have to go to.  Even if you're not in the vicinity...if it's like an hour and a half's still way worth it.  This is one of our favorite places - Lasting Toys.

Lasting Toys is an independent LEGO store in Mississauga, Ontario.  We first discovered them a few years ago, I think, back when they were in a much smaller store.  They are packed floor to ceiling with LEGOs.  They carry old & new sets - they still have a few LEGO Agents, Rock Raiders, and Aquanauts sets!  They have all sorts of accessories and books, too.

On our most recent visit we picked up the Ocean Interceptor from the DINO line, some BrickStix, an old Bionicle polybag, the Mirkwood elf polybag, and a Friends polybag for LEGOGirl.

It's really cool being able to see older sets on the shelves.  They tend to have a good assortment of rare and hard to find items.  It's just a really cool place and I highly recommend a visit.

LEGO Ninjago #6: Warriors of Stone Graphic Novel

The latest Ninjago adventure is now available in print!  The Serpentine may have been defeated, but there's more to do for our fearless heroes.  LEGO Ninjago #6 features a new threat: the Stone Warriors.

The gold ninja isn't featured in this installment, however there is some very nice artwork of him in the front of the book.  But getting back to the story, the world of Ninjago is slowly turning to stone, and the Ninja set out to determine why.  Along the way are nice touches of humor, with Jay scoring most of the funny lines.  And how can you go wrong with a comic that includes naked chickens?

All that and more is in store.  You'll have to read it yourself to find out how the chickens enter into things.  LEGOBoy gave this one his seal of approval.  He liked the humor in it and enjoyed the part when Zane discovers the secret passage.

And if all this wasn't enough, you even get a special preview of #7: Stone Cold.  This is a nice purchase to keep Ninjago fans happy while LEGO takes a break from new sets.
