Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mega Bloks Released & Photos!

Ordinarily I don’t get a lot of requests for coverage of Mega Bloks sets, but a surprising number of readers have been requesting information on the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mega Bloks sets.

There was just one problem: although most of the new Mega Bloks Ninja Turtles set are available for order online, the TMNT Mega Bloks hadn’t hit my local stores–until this weekend, when I was stunned by the sheer magnitude of the number of toys released to kick off this line…

While LEGO almost unilaterally wins the battle for all the best licenses, there are still some legendary brands that they’ve never had, and one of them is Star Trek.

MEGA Brands shocked the brick-collecting world at the New York Toy Fair 2015, when they quietly announced that they had acquired the license to produce Mega Bloks Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles construction sets and figures.

People ask me a lot what the “Bloks” in “Bricks and Bloks” is for. It is, of course, not a misspelling–it’s for Mega Bloks. I don’t do a ton of coverage of Mega Bloks here anymore, as most readers don’t seem to like them. However, just about everyone loves the Despicable Me Minions. And at New York Toy Fair 2015, MEGA Brands revealed that by the end of the year, there will be over a hundred Mega Bloks Minions figures!

Mega Bloks Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Collector Set Released!

There are days when you feel old, and then there are days when you feel really old. Today is one of the latter for me, as I learned that today is the 20th Anniversary of the debut of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers TV show in the United States–a show I thought I was too old for when it first aired.
