Welcome

I just recently discovered these awesome micro action figures that Mega Bloks/Mega Construx makes.

My wife decided that she wanted to check out this new high-tech Walmart that opened in the area, so last weekend we decided to go visit it.  A high-tech Walmart is basically just a really nice Walmart with touchscreen displays all over the place and hand barcode scanners you can use to scan your items as you put them in your buggy.

Anyway, while there I decided to take a peek at the toy deportment and saw these Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles figures with Lego-looking blocks - they looked kinda neat, so I made a note of the brand and decided to do a little research on them later in the week. My research dug up that the brand used to be called Mega Blocks Collectors Series, but is now known as Mega Construx, and that they had micro action figures from several interesting properties available in addition to TMNT: Terminator Genisys, Call of Duty, Assassin's Creed, Star Trek, Halo, Destiny etc.

After mulling it over for a bit and thinking that these micro action figures might be usefuls as miniatures for playing role-playing games or skirmish miniatures wargames I decided to order myself a couple of sets to check them out: Terminator Genisys Spider Tank and Call of Duty Nuketown.
