  4. Eon, by Greg Bear
  5. The Perks of Being a Wallflower, by Stephen Chbosky
  6. Brave New World, by Aldous Huxley
  7. Sandman (graphic novels), by Neil Gaiman
  8. American Gods, by Neil Gaiman
  9. JPod, by Douglas Coupland

Disney Lego

I recently purchased 18 LEGO Disney series 1 minifigure “blind bags.” Why, you may ask? Because I wanted the Alice in Wonderland and Cheshire Cat minifigs! I was hoping to get duplicates of these, so I could have one of each on my desk at work, and then some for home as well.

I figured I could trade or sell any that I didn’t want, and I also figured when my daughter is old enough for LEGO some of these would be fun for her to play with. I was not trying to collect the whole series, although that thought crossed my mind when I started to realize how difficult it was to find them, even though they were only released a few weeks ago. As an adult, I was still familiar with 16 out of 18 characters. I guess Disney is forever, right?

The reason I’m posting this is to share what I got out of 18 bags:

2 x Stitch
3 x Toy Story Alien
1 x Aladdin
2 x Genie
1 x Maleficent
2 x Alice in Wonderland
2 x Minnie Mouse
1 x Mickey Mouse
1 x Syndrome
1 x Captain Hook
1 x Ursula
1 x Ariel

Now that I have three Toy Story Aliens I’m hoping I can get Buzz Lightyear. I’d like a Peter Pan to go with Captain Hook, and of course I still need the Cheshire Cat. Otherwise I’m pretty happy with what I got, they’re all really cool, especially Ursula and Captain Hook. I’ve sold some of the duplicates and ones that I didn’t want.
