New LEGO Set

2010-January-28

Tonight, after going out to dinner, Megan and I stopped by the Target to get some badly needed supplies. New pants, shampoo, toothpaste, mouthwash, along with some milk and pop tarts.

The most important part of the trip though, was definitely the awesome little LEGO guy I picked up for about $5.

Still Boxed

I bought it for two reasons. Firstly, as noted by noted cartoonist Dave Willis, it looks a lot like David Walkerton and UltraCar from the web comic It's Walky!

Front of Car

The other reason I grabbed it is I've been wanting to use LEGO minifigures as characters in an alternate form of web comic. There are a variety of things I could do, and what I was going to do is kind of a general "day in the life" type of comic similar to Questionable Content.

Car Has a Trunk

I need to get a few more LEGO sets, and I would like to have a place established where I can keep the LEGO stuff set up. I also need/want to find a new container for the legos so I can get more characters and a few settings. There are definitely a few sets I want to get at some point, so I can look more closely at starting up some kind of story with LEGO Minifigures. Before I start that I may need to look at some copyright stuff in order to make sure that nothing will go wrong with it.
